The number of people activating Android devices continues to grow, because this summer we've watched as a number of Android apps have passed the billion installs milestone. The latest app to hit this goal is Play Music. This makes it the fifteenth to get on the list.
Google has made numerous additions to Play Music since launching the service in 2011. Users went from storing their personal collections online and buying individual albums to streaming whatever they wanted using All Access subscriptions. These days you can start personalized radio stations that suit your mood. You can also sign-up to stream music for free. Read More
Whispering Willows is the kind of game we'd like to see more of on any platform. The art style alone shows how much care and attention the designers approached the game with. That it happens to be fun is almost a perk.
The hand-drawn experience centers on Elena, a girl who can project her spirit outside of her body. Controlling her astral projection to solve puzzles forms the crux of the gameplay. Read More
Here's another of my favorite kind of deal. Free stuff! Presently you can pick up a digital copy of the album, Play: Blues Pioneers, on the Google Play Store for the delightful price of nothing. It is full of wonderful bluesy songs like, Stormy Night Blues, Hokum Blues, and Blind Pig Blues. I've kindly provided the full list here for your perusal.
Ok, confession time. I have no experience whatsoever with the blues and I've never heard of a single one of these songs, or artists. (Barbecue Bob? That's a real person?) When I think of the blues this is what comes to mind. Read More
Until Dawn, for the uninitiated, is not a game about seeing who can stay up the latest. It's a survival horror title set to hit the PlayStation 4 tomorrow, August 25th. Players will be in for a frightening experience that's meant to be played multiple times, with each adventure lasting around ten hours.
Just before the big day, Sony has released the official Until Dawn companion app into the Play Store. As long as the app is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the console, you will be able to use your phone or tablet to unlock secrets and keep track of collectibles. Read More
The HTC One M9 hasn't been selling particularly well. Certainly not up to HTC's expectations, at least. To encourage a few more people to pull the trigger, HTC is offering some free Google Play credit. Specifically, $100 of it. Read More
Webmaker is Mozilla's effort to make it easy for new smartphone users to make content for the web. Instead of creating something using WordPress or Blogger, people can throw materials together using a more simplistic interface. Webmaker has been available on the web since 2012, but now you can download an Android version directly from Google Play. Read More
Using the stock market isn't free. Well, obviously. You're buying and selling stocks, after all. But on top of that, brokerage firms tend to charge fees to manage financial transactions. The Robinhood app lets you get around that fee, and now it has made its way over from iOS to Android. Read More
Killing Floor is exactly what it sounds like. Okay, no, it's not a game about a floor that eats everything it touches. We call that game hot lava, and it's much less gruesome than this one. No, Killing Floor is a first person shooter where you kill everything on the same floor as you that looks like it might be a zombie. Sure, it may actually be the result of a failed cloning experiment, but if it looks like a zombie and sounds like a zombie, shoot it.
Killing Floor: Calamity is a twin-stick version made for mobile devices. It's still a co-op experience like the Steam version that gamers fawned over back in 2009. Read More
