Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix.

Several weeks ago, we caught wind of Android 4.4.3 and some of the changes it could bring, consisting mostly of bug fixes, both big and small. At this point, according to several sources familiar with the matter, Android 4.4.3 has entered internal testing outside of the core Android team - a process otherwise known as dogfooding. The final release isn't expected to hit public devices for a number of weeks, so those of you expecting it any day now will have to wait just a bit longer.

SoundCloud has made the jump to version 2.8, bringing along a few new enhancements in the process. Many of them are visual, though the changes are small. Tabs are white now. The explore section introduced in version 2.7 has had the position of artist names and song titles moved around, as have the search results. Speaking of searching, the app has new support for hashtags and recommends a page filled with them when clicking on the search icon.

When Google released Newsstand, it married content from Currents and Magazines. This brought stories from around the web, along with paid magazine and newspaper subscriptions to one place. The problem, however, is that paid content isn't yet available 'round the world.

Today marks the arrival of paid content to the Newstand app in Italy, making it the fifth country to get support for the service. Both the application and Newsstand homepage appear to have been updated for Italian users, and there's also a promotional page to help users find new content to purchase.

Not content to unveil one new Android app today, Dropbox's bringing along another. However, this one isn't a port, and it's launching for Android and iOS on the same day. The software in question goes by the name of Carousel, a gallery app that organizes all your Dropbox photos and videos in a way that's more manageable than the endless list of photos provided within the current app.

Mailbox launched on iOS last year, and users were impressed with its ability to efficiently manage a flood of email. The response was so good, Dropbox bought the company. Now an updated version of Mailbox is on Android for you to try with your Gmail or iCloud account.

We've reported on several Google Now-related rumors recently. If our information is accurate, Google Now will soon be able to help you remember and pay for bills, automatically infer events from your communications, and serve you reminders depending on who is near you. Today, we've got another one. This time, Google wants to help you remember where you left your car.

Calendar-Thumb

Geek.com is back with another round of leaked screenshots. We shared the reported experimental Gmail images last week, which showed a radically different interface from the one we've grown accustomed to. Those images, and these new ones, allegedly come from early test builds, so whether they reveal much about Google's future plans remains to be seen. Nevertheless, here are the new calendar screens, the last of which shows the name "Timely" at the top, apparently Google's internal name for the Calendar app that ships pre-installed on devices.

Now that the first shipments of AT&T's Galaxy S5 are beginning to arrive at people's doors, we are receiving reports from disgruntled customers that the "download booster" feature, which Samsung touted at the launch event in Barcelona, is completely missing from Big Blue's variant.

For those unaware, this functionality allows you to combine your Wi-Fi and LTE connections during downloads of files larger than 30 MB. The idea is that part of the file downloads over each connection interface, resulting in vastly improved download speeds over what would be achievable by each one individually.
