The first question you may have is "since Bitdefender's Mobile Security app was already free(mium), why release this?" That answer is actually pretty simple: as of today, the model for Mobile Security has changed to a trial period-only.

Board Game Tigris & Euphrates Comes To Android With Hot Seat Multiplayer, Because Two Rivers Are Better Than One

While I'm not exactly the world's biggest board game enthusiast, Tigris & Euphrates is one even I've heard of: the much-lauded strategy game has transcended its cardboard and tile roots and is now on Android. The proto-historic pastime designed by Dr. Reiner Knizia has been around over 15 years now, and this Android version is an official port.
