htc merge-101119-02

Remember the HTC Merge? Yeah, the one that HTC officially announced back in February. Well, it looks like it's finally available on Big Red today, but there's an interesting stipulation with this one: you won't actually find it in any Verizon Wireless store. According to an internal VZW document that fell into the hands of Android Central, you'll only be able to get a hold of this little gem at third-party retailers, like Best Buy.

We talk about a lot of different types of apps here at Android Police, but very seldom do we get to discuss an app that may actually save someone's life. WebMD for Android could be that app, and while I realize that may be a stretch, the possibility is still there.

This app really is an on-the-go doctor, as it offers a ton of extremely useful features. The symptom checker is a good starting point - it brings up a virtual body, where you tap the area that is troubling you, choose your symptoms, and then read about potential causes.

On Friday we told you about the arrival of Pinball HD for Tegra devices, but if that just wasn't your cup of tea where pinball is concerned, then you'll be happy to know that ZEN Pinball THD will become part of the Tegra Zone family soon. ZEN Pinball is a port from the popular Playstation 3 game of the same title, and this will be its first venture into the mobile world.

A couple of weeks ago we highlighted three upcoming games for Tegra devices, and the first of the trio - Pinball HD - will officially land today. Pinball HD is an iOS port from game developers Gameprom, and brings a new school twist to an old school game.

This game is graphically rich and beautiful, full of amazing textures and environments. The gameplay is incredible, as it offers varying dynamics according to device angle and orientation.

It has been about a month since we first mentioned that car rental company Zipcar was working on an Android app, and the first beta has now arrived. With this app you'll be able to find and rent a car directly from your Android device, but that's not all - it will also allow you to lock/unlock the doors and honk the horn. That last part may seem like a bit of a novelty, but you have to admit that it's still pretty rad.

If you were a billion dollar company that had a smartphone design laying around that didn't do so well, what would you do with it? Motorola's going with "rebrand it and release it on a different network" with the "new" XPRT that's set to hit Sprint in June. The global-ready XPRT is basically a rebranded DROID Pro, as it has near identical specs:

motoxprt-lg1

  • 3.1 Inch display
  • 1GHz Processor
  • Global Ready
  • Mobile Hotspot with support for up to 5 devices
  • 5MP Rear Camera
  • Android 2.2 with Motoblur

The XPRT is geared towards business users, and it's the first Android handset on the Now Network to sport enterprise-class security and data encryption.

Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous week or so.

Last week, I went for a nice vacation in the Caribbean and because of that, there was no Best Apps issue at all. Instead, I've rolled 2 weeks' worth of stuff into this week aaaaaaand because it's turned out so long, I am splitting it up into multiple posts (apps are coming soon after this, most likely tomorrow).

I'm going to be really honest about this one: I had no idea that anyone still uses LiveJournal. Much to my surprise, though, it has been going strong all this time - it's even ranked #71 in the world according to Alexa. After realizing that tidbit of information, it's not surprising at all that there is now an official LiveJournal App for Android.

For a mobile blogging app, I must say that this one seems quite feature rich: you can post new journal entries and photos, create polls, edit entries, create drafts, and manage settings.

Love to shop? Love to shop on the go? Love to shop while shopping? If you answered yes to any of those questions (especially the last one) then you need to grab the new app from online retailer Zappos. It offers all of the Zappos deals that you've grown to love, but it also has the features that you would expect from a good shopping app. Of course you can search and buy, but it also has product reviews, a sharing feature that works over bluetooth, and a wishlist style feature.
