Usually we'd save a cool live wallpaper for our next roundup, but this one's just so groovy we had to let our readers know about it now. GyroSpace 3D is a live wallpaper that, like many others, uses your device's gyroscope for visual effects. But the space-scapes shown off in GyroSpace move around on a three-dimensional plane, coming in and out of the user's filed of view with remarkable smoothness. It's a neat effect that's not unlike a stereoscopic 3D screen, without the added hardware.
You're clearly not tired of zombies, are you? How could you be? They're the perfect surrogate for people in violent video games. Without worrying about any of the moral consequences, you can shoot, chainsaw, maim, electrify, incinerate, or nominate them for Oscars! Try doing that with a normal human being! In Zombiewood, the carnage takes place in a Hollywood (get it?) backlot, the one place you've always wanted to let loose and break stuff.
With every $1.5 billion franchise, there's bound to be a slew of games, merchandise, and paraphernalia to go along with it. Today's latest entry is Marvel: War of Heroes, a digital "card" game wherein you play an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. assembling a crack team of superheroes to save the world's supply of ISO-8 from supervillains. Of course, we use the word "card" here rather loosely as anyone who's played a card game before, digital or otherwise, is likely to be a little flummoxed by how this game works.
Available on both phones and tablets, Quicken for Android allows you to sync your accounts over from your desktop so that you can keep an eye on your finances whilst you're on the move.
Rather than just offering a stripped down version of the existing desktop application, Intuit has built most of the features that are available on the desktop into the mobile app; you can view your spending by category, with graphs available on the tablet version, and create alerts to notify you of activity on your account.
There are two types of people in this world: those who stick with the same carrier for decades at a time, and those who jump from one to another in order get the best phones. If you fall into the latter category, now may be the time to head over to AT&T, because the HTC One X just dropped to a penny at Amazon Wireless.
The Atrix HD is probably the best Motorola smartphone on AT&T right now. If you happen to fancy Moto's hardware and are in the market for a new phone on Big Blue, you're in luck: it's now basically free from Amazon Wireless for new contract and upgrading customers.

One of the nicest options of ASUS' line of tablets is the keyboard dock with a built-in extra battery that can make your device run forever and much easier to type on. The downside? Those docks tend to cost over $100. In the case of the Transformer Pad 300 (TF300), exactly $127, to be precise. Right now, though, Newegg is offering it for free if you buy it with the tablet.
