Aviary, one of the web's most popular free image editors, has built a new nest in the Android market. The software, made by the company of the same name, is a powerful (for free software, anyway) photo editor that comes packed with effects, filters, and tools for sprucing up images. The Android version comes with some effects built in, with the option to shell out some cash for more.

You won't be getting any jobs on a Hollywood effects team with your creations in Aviary, but for most tasks you'd want to do on a phone, Aviary is fantastic.

    • Camera: Enhancements to deliver better overall picture taking experience so you never miss a moment
    • Google Music: Addition of Google Music application so you have greater access to the world of music.

    Meet Yello, a fish that was probably named by a two-year-old because the child thought he looked vaguely yellowish and he doesn't really know how to spell. He also doesn't quite understand how fish breathe, because he's rather sadistically yanked Yello from his bowl for "a walk." It's up to you to save Yello... by yanking on his tail and flinging him into piles of things until he eventually lands in his bowl.

    Tongue Tied, a young yet popular game for iOS has finally gotten the Android treatment from its creators at Mojo Bones Ltd, bringing the slapstick physics/platforming game to Android users everywhere today.

    Tongue Tied fuses physics and platform gameplay styles with the wacky story of two dogs (Mick and Ralph) who are literally tongue tied. As shown in the video above, players can expect to bounce, swing, and jump through about 60 levels "in search of the elusive WonderBone."

    Besides offering dozens of levels to play through, Tongue Tied has score-based medals for each level, as well as 33 extra challenges with "some of the most interesting unlockables you're likely to see!" Adding even more to the game's replay value are trick and bonus scoring systems, allowing advanced players to be rewarded for traversing each level with extra panache.

    Xoobis brought the cartoon zombie-shooting fun of Zombie Wonderland to Android today, introducing Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time to the Android Market. The game centers around Chuck, a man with the rather unusual job title of Zombie Cleaner. Players are invited to shoot first and mop later, blowing through 25 types of zombies in over 30 missions, taking place in 12 unique locations.

    Once you're done shooting up every zombie in sight, however, you must clean up the mess in order to please your clients.

    Let this be a lesson to all major tech companies: if you have a ton of users and you want to enter a new market, you'd better charge some kind of arbitrary fee, lest you end up in trouble with the French judicial system. Google is feeling that sting this week, as a French court ordered the company to pay €500,000 in damages to Maps competitor Bottin Cartographs as well as a €15,000 fine.

    You guys remember Rhapsody, right? The music streaming service that was sitting in the back seat next to Rdio, MOG, and GrooveShark back when Spotify was stealing all the U.S. spotlight? Rhapsody was the one desperately trying to wash the stink of Real Player off its clothes. Well, it's back with another update to its mobile app, and this time it's bringing with it a sweet new tablet interface.

    Of the major music streaming services, Rhapsody appears to be the first to create a proper tablet interface for its mobile app.

    Looks like someone may have dropped the ball over at Newegg, judging by one of the banner slides on the main page:

    Do you see what we see? The Galaxy Nexus, now with 800MHz moar processor! It's clearly a typo, but it's pretty lulz all the same. Fortunately, the actual cell phone landing page has the correct specs, so hopefully no one out there will be picking up the good old GN thinking they're going to be clocking the fastest speeds known to man in a mobile device.

    As Android has grown from a small hobbyists OS to the mainstream-conquering behemoth it is today, so has the amount of malware directed towards it. A large chunk of the problem comes from malicious apps that make it into the Android Market - often times, duplicates of popular apps with a few strings of code thrown in that allow the app to transmit personal information or hijack the device.

    Makers of anti-virus apps claim that there's more malware in the market than ever, painting the picture of a wild west-esque place that's ever-more attractive to the scum of the app universe.
