New 'Designed For Families' Google Play Program Will Showcase Kid-Friendly Apps And Games

Google plans to roll out a new Google Play program that places an emphasis on family-focused (i.e. kid-friendly) apps and games. This initiative will display pre-approved content under an experience the company is calling "Designed for Families." The goal is to point parents in the direction of software from the likes of Crayola and PBS Kids without exposing them to the flood of less age-appropriate content on display in the Play Store.

Android Encounters Space Marshals, Exchanges Fire In Pixelbite's Twin-Stick Tactical Shooter

Setting aside the fact that Space Marshals is a port, the whole cowboys in space thing has been done before. Joss Whedon's Firefly has thirteen episodes and a movie exploring the concept. Cowboys & Aliens let Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford have a crack at it not too long ago. Before that, Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones gave it a shot in, yes, Space Cowboys.

But in a sea of generic sci-fi shooters, capping aliens in the desert while wearing a 10-gallon hat can feel somewhat refreshing.

Football Manager Classic 2015 Treats High-End Android Tablets To A 3D Version Of The Coaching Simulator

Don't let the name fool you. Football Manager Classic 2015 isn't an old version of the somehow-popular series of soccer/football coaching titles. You're not in for a nostalgic dose of pixelated graphics (in this case, that's what the regular entries are for). Football Manager Classic 2015 hits Google Play with 3D visuals, more players, and more languages. In short, it's closer to the PC version of the game.

Football Manager Classic 2015 supports less hardware than the most recent Football Manager Handheld.

Playworld Superheroes Turns Your Pretend Cardboard Helmet Into A Full-Blown Superhero Costume, Complete With Powers, For $3.99

Playworld Superheroes serves as an example that a game aimed for kids doesn't have to be second rate.

This immersive title gives players a chance to create their own superhero, much the way many of us have done in our childhood years. You create an imaginary costume using whatever household supplies you have lying around―whether that be a cardboard box or some stickers—and apply crayons and glue. Then you watch as the game turns your haphazard creation into a full-blown, customized suit of armor.

Play Store 5.4 Makes The Notification Bar Transparent On App Pages [APK Download]

The Play Store is where you go to watch your other apps get updated, but occasionally it's nice to sit back and watch as the store gets its own renovation. Sometimes the changes are stark. Other times, there are just a few new lights here or there.

What's New?

In version 5.4, it's not about what's been added, but what's been taken away. The notification bar has lost its color. Now Play Store pages appear with banner images that reach towards the top of the screen.

Fighting game fans in particular have been able to enjoy Samurai Shodown II, along with an entry in the Fatal Fury series—Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Now the company has released the arcade hit Fatal Fury Special into the Play Store as well.

Steven Universe is one of the four Crystal Gems that fight to keep the world safe from evil. Except in this case, Steven kind of screwed the pooch, accidentally unleashing a huge monster that threatens the exact planet he's trying to keep safe. So now, in a new mobile game available on Google Play, he and the other three Gems (Amethyst, Garnet, and Pearl―but you can think of them as people) must journey forth to defeat it and the light creatures they've inadvertently summoned.

BlinkFeed Launcher Becomes HTC Sense Home, Comes With Themes And Intelligent Widget

BlinkFeed debuted with the HTC One M7, and while not everyone appreciates a Flipboard-style home screen with limited news sources, it has its fans. HTC uploaded the launcher into the Play Store last year in time for the M8 launch, and for the M9's release it has renamed the app to Sense Home.

HTC's new homescreen implements a few predictive capabilities that we've seen pop up over the past year or two in apps such as Aviate and EverythingMe.
