Temple Run 2 Will Arrive On Android January 24th, Brings Bigger Monkey Says Imangi Studios

The original Temple Run was a huge hit on Android when it came out, following an already successful splash on iOS. Now, Imangi Studios is hoping it can pull the same feat off again with Temple Run 2. The title just launched on Apple's App Store today. Don't adjust your television sets, folks. Partly because you're probably not reading this on a TV so adjusting it would be silly and partly because, yes, this is still an Android blog.

[New Game] From The Maker Of Wind-Up Knight, Rise Of The Blobs Is A Clever Puzzler With Cool Visuals

Wind-Up Knight was one of the first truly great platformers on Android, and now developer Robot Invader is taking on puzzles with a new game called Rise of the Blobs. It's a little bit like a fusion of Tetris and Collapse, but with food. It is up to you to hold off the ever expanding army of blobs as they seek to (presumably) consume your marshmallow hero. I mean, you almost can't blame them – he looks so tasty.

Play Movies & TV

Next up was the Play Movies & TV app, but we're not even sure what's changed, because there's no changelog yet (the current one about availability in 11 countries is old).

[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops Price Of DROID DNA To $99 For New Customers ($149 For Upgrades)

The DROID DNA is a phone I have little trouble recommending to most people, even if I can't say it's my very favorite piece of hardware out there. A 5" 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, great build quality, Verizon's near-ubiquitous LTE coverage - there's a lot to like about this phone. At $200 on contract, I might even say it's kind of a good deal already. But that wasn't low enough for Amazon.

LG Lucid And Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 Both Receiving OTA Updates Soon

If you're the lucky (debatable) owner of a Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 or LG Lucid, good news - you're about to get an OTA update! Verizon just posted new update docs on its support site for both devices.

The Tab 7.7's update is about as minor as you can get, though, offering reduced electrical consumption when charging... while powered off. We're guessing that's not what this update is actually about though.

Now There Is A T-Mobile Version Of The 3G Nexus 7 In The Play Store, But It's Pretty Much Identical To The AT&T Version

Up until this point, if you wanted to get the 3G version of the Nexus 7 in the US, it appeared that AT&T was the only option. Now, however, Google has provided a T-Mobile version on the Play Store. This model comes pre-loaded with a T-Mo SIM. According to the tech specs, though, they're functionally identical. This will just save you the trouble if you prefer magenta over blue and orange, I suppose.
