Some characters have to be shoehorned into an endless runner, but for Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog, the genre is a natural fit. Now Sega is offering a Nintendo-style promotion that's only available for Android. Here's your chance to take our lovable green Bugdroid out for a spin, as the developers have dropped it into the game and are daring players to see if machines really are better at everything.

But that's not all.

Google Drive/Google Docs isn't the best online office suite in the world, at least in my experience, but it is a pretty great way to get a competent and instant editor for quick tasks. The only problem is that this tends to leave you with dozens of semi-finished items in your Drive, a bunch of quick paragraphs and hastily-formatted emails that need to be deleted one-by-one in the list view. Today Google Drive has solved this minor annoyance, if only on the web.

Perhaps you recall the abrupt closure of online phone dealer Wirefly a few months ago. Its parent company Simplexity LLC filed for bankruptcy, and is currently being chopped up and sold as part of debt reorganization. The Wirefly name and website have emerged from this under new ownership with a focus on comparing devices and plans to help you find the best deal.

Hey, Minus, are you guys alright? Because you're demonstrating the developer equivalent of multiple personality disorder. Sixteen months after Dropbox-style cloud storage app Minus shifted 180 degrees to take aim at Instagram, it has once again become a completely different service, this time with a new name. Minus is now "Meow," a randomized chat client, sort of like Omegle or Chatroulette without the video. All that's left of the latest Minus re-brand, or indeed the original storage app, is the "com.minus.android" APK name.

Back in the 90s, I was a Genesis kid, but I missed out on the 2D platforming classic Castle of Illusion. This game starred Mickey Mouse and was one of the more popular titles available to tide console owners over until the release of the original Sonic the Hedgehog. Last fall a completely new HD version hit the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, PC, and iOS, giving newcomers a chance to experience the adventure for the first time and long-time fans a reimagined take on the world they may have forgotten.

Update Wednesday held at least one more treat this week - a bump to Google Play Movies & TV, bringing the app up to version 3.2.25. Google hasn't published an official change log yet, but so far the only user-facing change we've found is the presence of applicable wishlist content (from your Play Store wishlist) inside the app, both on the "Watch Now" screen, and in the slide-out navigation bar.

Google, in a continued effort to break stock Android apps out of Android, has just added Email to the Play Store. It's the Email app you know and love from Android, but with a few added features. For the initial Play Store debut, Google has beefed up security (in unspecified ways) for Gmail accounts, improved the account setup flow, added printing to the app, and fixed "other bugs."

T-Mobile has just announced their plans for Uncarrier part 5. The first big move of the T-mo's latest effort to shake up the wireless industry is the announcement of Test-Drive, a service through which users can get an iPhone 5S for seven days to take T-Mobile's "data strong" network for, well, a test drive. There's no down-payment, no charge, no nothing. Just get the device, try out the network, and return it at a store when you're done.

Jeff Bezos took to the stage earlier today to announce Amazon's first entrant into the highly competitive smartphone industry, the Fire Phone. Not only was the presentation loaded with some of the shiny new features of the handset and Fire OS, all meant for the press to disseminate to potential buyers, but there were also a few unusually blunt efforts to attract developers. In the midst of demonstrating Firefly and Dynamic Perspective, portions of the presentation were focused on explaining that developers would be able to extend these platform features in their own apps.

Widely regarded as one of the best terminal clients on Android, JuiceSSH's v1.5 update today doesn't add any new features, it actually does one better: it allows other developers to add new features to the app, via community plugin support.

Plugins in Juice will be able to request custom Android permissions for listing or modifying connections, groups, and group memberships, initiating and interacting with SSH sessions, and to audit plugin interactions.
