Good news for you independent bloggers out there! WordPress just issued a small update to its mobile app. The biggest change is that you can now add featured images to a post.

Grooveshark App Can't Catch A Break, Disappears From The Play Store Again After Just A Few Days

It's never easy to be a questionably-legal music streaming service on the internet. Grooveshark has had trouble with submitting an Android app in the past. A couple days ago, we thought the company had ironed out its problems with Google's ToS when it reappeared on the Play Store. Not so, it seems, as the app has now been pulled yet again.

Official Lyft App Now Available For Android, Brings 'On-Demand Ridesharing' To San Francisco (For Now)

It's not often that I hear of a startup and think "I would love to have that in my town!," yet that's exactly  what I thought when I heard about Lyft. For the unaware, Lyft is a new service in San Francisco that helps people find a ride at around 20% the cost of a taxi. In fact, payment is actually optional (though not paying at all isn't recommended - more on that in a few).

[New Game] Farts Vs Zombies Is Exactly What It Sounds Like, Plus Unicorns For Some Reason

Sometimes, a game comes along that is so bizarre, so weird, so completely out there that it's difficult to describe just how strange it is. This isn't one of them. In this game, a unicorn teaches you how to use farts to kill zombies. Duh. Of course some walkers only react to certain types of flatulence. Everyone knows this. That's why we have unicorn trainers.

[Review] Magisto Is An Automatic Video Editor For Android That, Against All Odds, Doesn't Suck

One of the worst phrases a human being can put together is "automatic video editor." The whole thing feels like it's set up for failure. Like "vasectomy in a box" or "snooki's pregnant." Add in "for Android" and, well, let's just say I've been burned before. So it came as an unbelievable shock when I tried out Magisto, which claims to be both of these things, and it was good.
