We're still getting a steady stream of email, and while we can't post them all, we've hand-picked eight more to share with our darling readers. As you're about to see, many people can't seem to grasp what it is we do. We're not crime fighters, nor are we IT ninjas. We blog. Still, that doesn't mean we don't try our best to help out.

[APK Teardown/Download] Google Maps 7.1 - Google Is Testing Textured 3D Buildings, Offline Cache Access For The Maps API, And Possibly Some Bug Fixes

Maps 7.1 is slowly rolling out into the world. Google is making this teardown particularly difficult, because they haven't even gotten around to releasing a change log yet - it's up to me to come up with something. First though, we need to cover the good stuff that most definitely won't be in the change log, because this has me excited:

3D Buildings!

Remember when I found a "3D" button allll the way back in version 6.12?

Pay What You Want For McPixel In This Week's Humble Weekly Sale, Get Four Other Non-Android Games As A Bonus

Just like last week's Humble Weekly Sale, there is only one Android game available in today's new bundle. This time it's McPixel, but considering the game usually costs $2.99 on Google Play, it's still worth your while to jump in on this pay-what-you-want deal. That said, this game is so, well, odd that it still might be worth trying out the free version before ponying up however much (or little) you want to contribute to this bundle.

Samsung Starts Bundling 2A Charger With Qi Charging Pad, Raises Price Just Enough To Put It Out Of 50% Off Coupon's Reach

Samsung took its time getting a Qi charger out the door, but they were finally available for purchase a few weeks ago. At $49.99 it was a reasonably good deal as far as wireless chargers go, but it didn't come with a wall charger to power the device. Now the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad includes the recommended 2A charger for $10 more, but that's not the best deal as it turns out.

Getting around New York City can be a bit of a chore, but there are a growing number of options out there. Today VeriFone has launched Way2Ride, a mobile app that makes it easier for New Yorkers to hail a cab and pay the fare using just their phone.

Layar Redesigns Augmented Reality App, Logo, And Website: Is It Still Worth Using?

Layar was one of the first apps to show the potential of augmented reality, and coincidentally, one of the first Android apps that made users stand up and say "Wow!" But four years later the shine has come off of AR, at least for the purposes that the original app served, like mapping and location discovery. So Layar has reinvented itself with a whole new app, look, and website.

Layar's new ad copy says that the company hopes to "help bridge the gap between print and digital." What does that mean, exactly?

[New Game] Dots Is Wildly Popular And Immensely Addicting, Now Available On Google Play

Dots hits all the right notes. It's easy to pick up, hard to put down, and requires no explanation. It brings back memories of competing with classroom friends, drawing a grid of dots on a loose leaf sheet of paper and taking turns connecting them to see who could amass the largest number of connections. This mobile adaptation adds a single player mode without stripping out the multiplayer aspect, the fun, or the addiction.
