[Deal Alert] AT&T's HTC One X Now $20 For New Customers At Amazon Wireless

If you walk into AT&T right now to buy the HTC One X and sign a new agreement, you'll not only be overrun by people trying to get the new iPhone, but pay $100 for it. Here's a better idea: stay home, head over to Amazon Wireless, and get the same phone for just $20 (if you're opening a new AT&T account). You'll avoid the crowd, standing in line, and having to listen to some salesman tell you to buy some other phone that's not nearly as good.

[New Game] Noodlecake's Velocispider Successfully Combines Retro Arcade Action With A Robotic Dinosaur-Spider Hybrid

Noodlecake, the makers of Trainyard, HueBrix, and Continuity, have just made available their latest entry in the Play Store, Velocispider. Before continuing, I should explain that Velocispider's titular protagonist is a half dinosaur, half spider robot. Knowing that, the rest of the game's characters are relatively sensible.

The premise of the game is simple – you are a robot spider dinosaur with rare eggs to protect. The CEO of the Robot Seafood Corporation wants those eggs, and will send  thousands of enemies your way over the span of 20 levels.

What We Use: The Apps, Tools, Devices, And Other Stuff Cameron Can't Do Without

Last week, we gave you a glimpse into what David uses: his favorite gadgets, accessories, apps, and all the other tech junk that he doesn't go a day without. Now it's my turn. With this series, you'll see how different each member of the AP team is when it comes to how we use our gear, which is one of the best things about Android: it's versatile.

Since David's already done the legwork of explaining what "What we use" is all about, I'm just going to jump right in.

[New App] NFLRUSH Offers A Slightly Tweaked Fantasy Football For Kids, Plus Scholarship Prizes

This may shock some of you, but there's a surprisingly small amount of overlap between tech bloggers and fantasy sports players. (Careful, gentle readers - you don't want to become over-gasped.) So it was with some confusion that I found a new official NFL fantasy football app, when there are already two published in the Play Store. The latest, NFLRUSH, is something of a toned-down, kid-friendly version of fantasy: instead of carefully picking your team at the beginning of the season and trading with your league-mates each week, NFLRUSH allows kids to pick a fresh roster after every game.

The Bard's Tale Review: 3.5GB Of Awesome Quests, Laughs, And Cleavage

Android gaming is becoming a bigger deal all the time with high-end games launching on the platform every week. The Bard's Tale is something a little different, though. Not only is it a highly anticipated game with similarly high production values, it is the biggest game I'm aware of on Android. With 20-30 hours of content and 3.5GB of game data, this is a real time investment. Let's figure out just how special The Bard's Tale is.

Hulu Plus, HBO GO, And MAX GO All Updated With Closed Caption Support

Three of the biggest TV-streaming apps in the Play Store - Hulu Plus, MAX GO, and HBO GO - were all updated within the past couple of days with eerily similar changelogs that include one key feature: support for closed captions. Past that, both HBO GO and MAX GO received "performance enhancements and bug fixes." Hulu, on the other hand also got support for "social sharing of videos and shows."

While these updates may be small in terms of size, they potentially bring one of the most important features to some users.

Qualcomm's Vellamo Benchmark Suite Goes 2.0, Brings Beautiful New UI And Brand-New CPU Benchmark

Do you enjoy knowing how fast things are? Then Qualcomm's revamped Vellamo suite is probably something you should check out. Vellamo has been the web benchmark of choice on Android for some time now, but this new update brings some major improvements.

First, the UI: it's completely different. It's actually really nice, certainly the prettiest benchmarking tool I've ever seen on Android (I mean, who really cares, but still). Just look at the screenshots:

Popular iOS Runner Game 'Subway Surfers' Makes Its Way To Android

We've seen more and more endless runner-style games show up in the Play Store, and, up to this point, they have all seemed basically the same. Enter Subway Surfers, a fun and whimsical take on the runner genre that just made its way to Android from iOS.

In Subway Surfers, you play the part of a delinquent kid named Jake who's running from an overly-grumpy inspector and his dog. You have to jump, flip, and grind from track to track on your hoverboard, picking up coins and avoiding trains as they pass by.

Facebook Brings Messaging Improvements To Messenger And Main Facebook Apps, No It's Not The New Native App

I know, you were really hoping for that extra special upgrade that Zuckerberg has been teasing ever since he admitted that HTML5 was a mistake. This should be a nice little improvement, though. Now, no matter which app you do your Facebook messaging from, whether it's messaging in Facebook, or via Facebook Messenger (confused yet?), you'll be able to see which of your friends is online, whether they're mobile, and even pin select friends that you talk to most to the top of the list.
