Official Greyhound Lines Android App Arrives At The Google Play Terminal

Sometimes buses arrive a little late. Depending on where you live, they occasionally even arrive on time. Greyhound has now released an official Android app, after having replicated this experience pretty well. It's not necessarily a problem to wait until Android and iOS have been around for several years before making an app, but with Greyhound having launched one for its BoltBus line half a year ago, this release does feel a little behind schedule.

Square Enix Releases Secret Of Mana For $9, Sets A New Standard For Awful Game Icons [Updated]

Update #2: Before continuing, recognize that this post was written with my tongue firmly in cheek. I intended for it to be humorous, but clearly I didn't articulate myself as well as I should have.

So let me clear things up. This is a mobile port of a classic, and it is absolutely worth your money. If you played the original and have longed to play it again, download this. If you love Square Enix ports, download this.

Play Movies & TV Becomes Latest Google App To Reach The 500 Million Downloads Milestone

Google's apps, alongside Facebook's, remain the only Android apps to reach over 500 million users. Some of the tech giant's offerings, such as Gmail and YouTube, have even managed more than a billion downloads.

Now Play Movies & TV has become the company's latest app to join the former category. On Google Play, it resides in the 500,000,000 - 1,000,000,000 range.

[Update: UGH] Nexus 6 Pre-Orders Are Live In The US Google Play Store (For Some), Bank Accounts Everywhere Tremble In Fear

Update, 10:30PM CST: Wow, it looks like Google really dropped the ball on this one. While previous Play Store launches have been problematic, today's Nexus 6 pre-order has left the vast majority of prospective buyers high and dry. Google seems to have sold out of a low initial stock almost instantly, and there was never a single point in the afternoon where you could reliably go to the Play Store and pay for a phone.

Google Releases 'Primer: Marketing For Startups' App To Help Small Teams Get Their Brand Out There

Primer: Marketing for Startups isn't like most of Google's other Android apps. For starters, it's the first to appear in the Play Store under the publisher "Google Learn." The app also happens to be such a niche product that only a specific target demographic will benefit from it.

As the name says, Primer is aimed at helping startups manage their marketing efforts. A great deal of work and knowledge goes into getting a new brand in front of consumers and establishing awareness.

If you've seen a couple of your friends flood their social feeds with single-panel comic strips starring people they know, chances are they didn't all suddenly learn how to draw at once.

There's an Android app out that lets you have fun from a mobile device, but if you really want to inject these characters into your daily life, you're going to want Bitmoji, the company's latest release.

The Wolf Among Us Comes To The Play Store After Four Months Of Amazon Appstore Exclusivity

This summer Telltale Games brought The Wolf Among Us to Android, a game based on the Fables comic book series from Bill Willingham and DC Comics. There was a catch--the game was only available via the Amazon Appstore. It wasn't a Kindle Fire exclusive or anything, but many Android users don't particularly want to deal with the Appstore for content, even if this means missing out on whatever piece of software is currently the Free App of the Day.

Sony Hits The Play Store With A Companion App For The SmartBand Talk SWR30 And A Bunch Of Extensions

A reasonable person would expect Sony to release a single companion app for its SmartBand Talk activity tracker, which comes equipped with a small e-ink display. In this case, a reasonable person would be wrong. Sort of, anyway. Yes, there's one primary app for the SWR30, but you're going to need to install some separate extensions to get full use out of the fitness band once it hits store shelves next month.
