Word Lens Adds Support For Russian Translations Right Before The Winter Olympics In Sochi

Those of you lucky enough to be visiting Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics might not have opulent luxuries like floors or potable water, but at least getting around town will be a little easier thanks to the Word Lens app. The developers added support for Russian today, allowing users to translate signs, menus, and other text on the fly.

If you've never used Word Lens, then you really should, at least if you're frequently traveling to places that don't speak your native language.

[New Game] LEGO City My City Brings Seven Blocky Mini-Games Together In An Ad-Less, IAP-Free, Kid-Friendly Bundle

Let's get this out of the way upfront, LEGO City My City has nothing to do with LEGO City Undercover for the Wii U. Chase McCain is not the protagonist, Frank Honey's antics are nowhere to be found, and there is no open world city to explore. This is a mini-game collection inspired by the LEGO City block set, with players getting to step into the blocky shoes of role models from all over town.

[New App] Qualcomm Releases Glance Beta, An Intelligent Lock Screen Replacement That Plugs Into Battery Guru

The Battery Guru app from Qualcomm promises to learn how you use your phone and make small tweaks to improve battery life. Glance, a new app from Qualcomm, uses that same usage data to build an intelligent lock screen. Battery Guru is required, so that means this is a Snapdragon-only experience.

Glance integrates a lot of supposedly intelligent features that tailor themselves to your usage. It lists upcoming appointments, apps you might want to use, frequent contacts, and the weather (because everything has to show the weather).

HTC Settles All Patent Disputes With Nokia (Read: Gives Up And Pays Out)

Nokia just issued a press release announcing that the company had settled all ongoing patent litigation with Taiwanese handset-maker HTC today, and it looks like the Finnish firm came out on top. Nokia says HTC will make payments to Nokia and that HTC will license its LTE patent portfolio to the company under a cross-licensing "technology collaboration agreement." Sounds pleasant.

Minigore 2 Returns To Google Play Under New Listing Following Ad Fiasco

Minigore 2 arrived on Android a little over a week ago, but it was gone just days later after its ad practices were called into question. The game was basically requiring players to tap on ads to bypass mandatory wait times. It was a minor inconvenience, but a big fat violation of Google's ad policies.
