The latest Captain America movie is polishing its shield, because its release is inbound. But before that can happen, movie goers first need a chance to experience the action firsthand in yet another Gameloft title. Most of these releases aren't anything to get excited about, but the cel-shaded graphics in this one have piqued our interest. Check them out.
How goes your crusade against the walking undead? No, not the vampires, the zombies. Taking on the shambling masses is getting a little sci-fi twist today with v2.1.1 of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The new far future world includes a ton of new content, and an old favorite feature from the original is making its triumphant return.
The new zone includes 24 levels, 8 new plants, and 10 new space-themed zombies.
Over the course of ten years, Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia fame has produced quite a bit of music. Now his record label, Size Records, is working with Google to give away 150 songs entirely for free. That's right - free. That's roughly a full workday of non-stop electronic music.
Almost a year ago, Microsoft released Office Mobile for Android phones to the Play Store. The caveat, of course, was that it required an Office 365 subscription in order to use the application, which was kind of a bummer.
Fast-forward to today, and you may have heard that Office is finally available for the iPad – a rumor that we've seen come and go several times over the last couple of years.
Just a quick update for Samsung device owners who, like me, found that the LastPass app fill was unable to fill any passwords after the very exciting 3.2 update. The latest version 3.2.3, which just popped up on the Play Store, specifically addresses this bug:
Fix app fill on Samsung devices. Please contact our support staff if you still have issues.
I've confirmed that the fix indeed works by successfully logging into both the Amazon app and the Amazon site in Chrome Beta on my Note 3:
Mega-retailer Amazon has scheduled a press event for Wednesday, April 2nd in New York City. The press invitation teases the event with the phrase, "Please join us for an update on our video business from [Amazon Kindle VP] Peter Larsen." A background with a couch and a bowl of popcorn makes it clear that Amazon's sights are set squarely on the living room.
The Verge is fairly certain that the event heralds an Amazon-branded set-top box, a la Roku or Chromecast.
The Pebble can handle plenty of functions thanks to a wide range of third-party apps, but interacting with messages typically remains a passive experience. Naturally, someone had to address this. Reqallable, an app that provides smartwatch wearers with the ability to respond to email and text messages without pulling out their phones, has added the Pebble to its list of supported devices.
Verizon is already selling the new HTC One, and you can get two of them cheap as long as you don't mind signing a new contract. The buy-one-get-one-free deal on Verizon is enticing if you need two phones, but it gets even better. You can get 30% off the cost of the phone you're actually paying for.
That was fast. Despite the fact that the Galaxy S5 won't be released for another two weeks, well-known developer and modder Chainfire has already rooted the phone. Well, at least one of the Galaxy S5s (S Fives? Galaxies S5? whatever), specifically the SM-G900F model, which seems to be the international GSM-LTE version. The root method will probably work with at least some regional and carrier variants.
To get root privileges, check out this XDA-Developers post for Chainfire's latest version of the CF-Auto-Root tool, flashable via a PC with Samsung's ODIN tool.
Collectable card battle games are incredibly popular on the Play Store and its mobile contemporaries, perhaps only outnumbered by various Bird ripoffs of the Angry and Flappy variety. Now you can get your tedious, IAP-riddled card action on in a Star Wars flavor, because Assault Team is available in the United States (and probably a lot of other places as well). For the one guy who's been patiently waiting since the Australian test release, this is very exciting news.
