I love Lastpass. I've been using it for over a year at this point, and I fear I can no longer live without it. A few months ago, the Lastpass Android app gained the ability to detect password prompts on the web and in apps and offer suggestions for autofill - much like the browser extension does. It worked well enough, though was kind of buggy. Still, the convenience outweighed the annoyance, so I think we all gave it a pass.

A pair of Amazon apps have popped up in the Play Store, but they're both for pieces of hardware you can't get yet. The Amazon Echo app is the companion to Amazon's bizarre connected speaker, and the Fire TV remote app adds functionality to the Fire TV Stick. I would wager the second will get more downloads.

So you know that mixtape that Peter Quill, excuse me—Star-Lord, dances to throughout Guardians of the Galaxy? Well those tunes are currently available on Google Play for free (Update: to people who live in the US). So if you want to be an earthling who feels like a space-traveling superhero who uses these songs to remind him of Earth, now you can do so without spending any money.

The Nexus 9 is still a new device, but it's a Nexus, and that means developers are going to tinker with it. In order to flash ROMs and whatnot, you need a custom recovery. Now there is one for this device. An official build of TWRP is live, and it brings some changes that take into account Lollipop's new security measures.

It's not unusual to see slightly customized builds of Android rolling out to Nexus devices shortly after the release of a new version. It certainly happened a few times with KitKat, and it looks like Lollipop is on track to do the same. As the rush of factory images and OTAs roll out, AOSP is also receiving commits for the new device-specific builds; and Al Sutton was quick to put out changelogs for each version.

There are different approaches to making email simpler and faster to deal with. Google's Inbox tries to group your communications by type, other apps transform email into tasks, and some keep the same ol' concept we're all used to but sprinkle some useful options here and there. WeMail adopts this third approach, while still attempting to interfere (mostly for the better) with the way your inbox is displayed.

WeMail pulls your email from Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, and AOL, and groups it by sender, essentially collapsing your inbox into a more manageable size.

Amazon is branching off into all sorts of media. Not content to provide you solely with digital books (through text or audio), magazines, TV shows, movies, and whichever apps it can offer alongside the Play Store, it's working with game developers to bring folks exclusive games as well. The latest product of this effort is Tales From Deep Space, which has landed in the Amazon Appstore for $6.99.

We've all seen it happen. A great technology, service, or platform comes out, but without a solid base of users and apps, it fails to gain traction. Google wants to see the Fit API work out, and developers have been called upon to help make that happen. If you know how to write an Android app, and you've got a great idea for something that will get people off the couch and into the gym, you're invited to join the Google Fit Developer Challenge.

All this technology is ruining us, isn't it? I mean, people are wearing watches now because they are too lazy to take their phone out of their pocket. That's insane. Don't you long for simpler times, when sending a message meant sitting at a desk and dipping a quill pen in ink? If you do experience this kind of nostalgia, you might be able to rekindle your relationship with the past thanks to this Kickstarter project.

If there ever was a reason to use the Amazon Appstore, this is it. Monument Valley, the game that has enchanted and awed (almost) everyone who played it is being offered for free today by Amazon, down from its original price of $3.99.
