The PlayStation Network has become a surprisingly rich source of ports for the Google Play Store. Take Dokuro: it's a beautiful 2D platformer that turned more than a few heads when it premiered as a downloadable title for the PS Vita last year. Now it's available on Android for a single buck, and if you're a fan of platformers with both creative gameplay and gorgeous visuals, you should definitely check it out.
Google's rolling out an AdSense update for its Android app that should provide a better experience for monitoring your revenue stream on the go. Version 2.0 introduces an enhanced interface, one that presents new information in a more visual manner. And don't worry, the widget introduced in the last release is still intact.
One of the problems with the pricing structure of American carriers is that people who buy their phones outright don't get any kind of break on the service plans themselves, giving people fewer incentives to get away from subsidies. T-Mobile has addressed this (by essentially throwing out subsidies all together), but today AT&T fires back with the new Mobile Share Value Plan. Basically it's a $15 discount if you buy a phone unsubsidized, including the new AT&T Next plans, or if you've already paid off your on-contract device.
Yarr, matey. Are ye ready to set sail for adventure and plunder on the waves? Assassin's Creed Pirates has arrived on Android as promised, and it's brimming with high seas adventure and impressive visuals.
You play a pirate captain searching for fame and fortune in the hulls of defeated enemies. The first vessel under your command is a modest one, but being a successful pirate will let you move up in the world.
Clash of Puppets may sound like it has a lot in common with Clash of Clans, but that's not the case at all. In fact, this game comes from a completely different developer. Clash of Puppets isn't a strategy game, nor does it have multiplayer options. Instead, Crescent Moon Games' latest title is a 3D platformer filled with plenty of hacking, loads of slashing, and even some blasting.
This isn't a 2D platformer with 3D visuals, but a top-down brawler with perhaps more combat than jumping.
Have you posted an image on the internet recently? If you didn't use Imgur, you have upset a certain contingent of internet denizens who are sure to let you know the error of your ways. The Imgur app on Android has just gotten a nice update to v1.3, making it even easier to do the right thing.
You just experienced a weekend of epic deals, and it's not even close to over yet. There are still all kinds of holiday app sales going on, and then it'll be on to the New Years sales, then the Presidents' Day sales, then the Valentine's Day sales, and so on in that fashion until all the apps are sold.
Version 5.3 of the Google Play Music app is flying out to Android devices right now, bringing with it... not a lot, actually. A quick look inside reveals bolded "Listen Now" text in the slide-out menu, a version update to 5.3.1316M, and not much else. But as usual, our hyper-intelligent cloud of futuristic swarming nanobots is pouring over the APK file, and there's plenty to be excited about.
Gamers of a certain age probably spent at least a few hours (or years) of their lives submerged in the original Double Dragon games. These side-scrolling beat-em-ups have stood the test of time, but emulators are so messy, right? DotEmu, a developer with plenty of experience porting classic games to mobile, has followed through on its promise to bring the Double Dragon Trilogy to Android as a single download.
The last time we saw an expansion of Google Play Books was nearly a month ago when the service opened up shop in South Africa, Switzerland, and Turkey. Since then, it would appear Google has been making headway in its continued effort to bring more of its services to as many countries as possible. This time around, the list of countries in which Play Books is available has been updated to include Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and Venezuela.
