Well folks, it's finally (officially) here. Since it was yanked from the S3 (and put through a beta period), Android users have been anticipating the "Social Magazine" which has already seen great success on iOS. The app, which is billed as "the one thing to simplify your daily life," hit the Play Store tonight, bringing a social news reader with an innovative user interface to Android users everywhere.

For those unfamiliar with Flipboard, the app allows users to not only read news related to their favorite topics, but to share what they're reading and "be amazed by what [they] see when everything people are sharing, collecting, and publishing in every moment comes together in a single place." Users can connect Flipboard to 12 social networks ranging from Twitter and Facebook to Instagram, Google+, YouTube, Google Reader, and more.

Google's Android Developer's site got a massive overhaul today, with a brand new UI, tons of new features, and a unified guide for developers on how to design, develop, and distribute their apps all in one place. The new site is fantastic-looking. Clearly Google wants to engage developers more and give them more guidance on how to succeed on the Play Store. So, what say we take a tour?

About Android

For anyone who's been kept in the dark, or just doesn't know everything there is to know about Android yet, Google's provided newcomers with a section just to tout the advantages of developing for Android.

Following up on the success of the self-billed "blockbuster casual platform action RPG" Illusia, GAMEVIL recently released Illusia 2 to the Play Store, promising a "thrilling storyline full of twists and turns," and "endless customizable options."

For those unfamiliar with the original game, Illusia is a side-scrolling RPG with heavy fantasy influence and a focus on quests, equipment upgrades, and overall immersive gameplay. Illusia 2, in keeping with the original, offers a rich, colorful art style, core RPG elements, and a compelling storyline.

OrangePixel, the famous for retro-inspired hits like Stardash and Meganoid, debuted Chrono & Cash to the Play Store today, bringing another fun, low-res platformer to Android.

The game centers around Cash (a "talented thief") and his Chrono robot called CR2. The duo travel through time to rob various treasures from evildoers through a simple yet clever gameplay style. The visual style is consistent with OrangePixel's other offerings – well thought-out, colorful, and pleasing to the eye despite its (intentionally) low-res graphics.

Once again, it's time to round up our top five favorite apps from the previous month. We rounded up dozens of great new apps in May, but for those who are short on time or internal storage, we've selected five apps that really shined and are worthy of your attention. It's not easy to choose just five apps with so many great candidates each month, but here they are:

CallApp

CallApp, which I had the pleasure of reviewing late last month, is an ingenious application that reminds me that my smartphone can actually function as a phone, and which makes telephony what it should have been all along.

Described as part real time strategy, part role playing game, GAMEVIL's Plants War is the most adorable game to offer "intense real-time tactical strategy" I've seen in months.

The game takes place on a post-human Earth, where animals who were left behind on the (mostly) barren planet have begun taking over the one remaining holdout of lush greenery and water – Dryad Forest. Enraged by the animals' exploitation of the forest, an army of plants (using a magical power source provided by Lake Naiad) band together to stop the animals.
