Chainfire's Sideload Launcher Lets Android TV Users Easily Start Their Sideloaded Apps

When Android runs on a TV, it's still Android, there are just a few checks in place to make sure users aren't installing unprepared phone apps to their big screens all willy-nilly, creating the kind of awful UI experience that could make a techie cry and any one else scrunch their face in confusion. In a way, Google's only trying to protect us from ourselves. Most TV viewers will want nothing to do with such shenanigans, so only apps that have been updated and declared compatible with Android TV work with the platform out of the box.

NHL 2K Series Slides Into The Play Store For Its Big Android Debut, Tickets Go For $7.99

I don't watch hockey, and the closest I've come to the sport consisted of living in Pittsburgh for a year and a half, a place where people adamantly stand by their NHL team. (I got caught in traffic when visiting just this weekend due to a Penguins game at the Consol Energy Center, only to see the same match on TV at the restaurant where we wound up that night.) Away from that city, I'm hard pressed to think of someone who can name more than a couple teams.

'Galaxy On Fire: Alliances' Brings The Beautiful Spacefaring Series Back To Android As A Strategy MMO

Quite a while has past since there's been any Android-related news for Galaxy on Fire fans. The developers of the series that showed many gamers just how beautiful space could be and let them explore it on their mobile devices surprised a few folks when they said that the next entry would deviate from their action-oriented roots and transition into a strategy-focused MMO. Excuse me, make that a free-to-play strategy-focused MMO.

The Galaxy on Fire: Alliances came to iOS earlier this year.

Limbic Releases 'Zombie Gunship Reality' Game For Project Tango That It Teased At Google I/O

Limbic has released Zombie Gunship Reality onto Google Play, a game that pretty much no one is able to play at the moment. It's available exclusively for Project Tango, an augmented reality project that has yet to ship on a device intended for general consumers. Unless there's an announcement in the works, one isn't intended for quite some time.

Zombie Gunship Reality takes the popular Zombie Gunship franchise and gives it the Tango treatment, requiring players to move around a physical space in order to find and fire upon the hordes of undead threatening the area below.

The Nexus Player Is Available For Pre-Order Once Again After Clearing The FCC

You may cease panicking—the Nexus Player is available for pre-order in the Play Store again after paying a visit to the FCC over the weekend. Google stopped taking orders for the device shortly after it went live on Friday when someone realized the FCC hadn't actually approved the device. The wait wasn't long, though.

Google Adds Optional Rating Filter To Play Store Searches That Limits Results To Apps With 4 Stars Or More

Searching for an app in the Play Store can be a bit of crap shoot, which is odd when it's run by a search company. Google just added a new filter to the web Play Store that lets you restrict results to only those apps with 4 or more stars. That should clear out a lot of the junk.

The FCC's Testing Report On The Nexus Player Is Finished, But It's Still Not Available For Pre-Order

In the United States, all electronic devices that use certain wireless radio transmissions, including cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other standards and frequencies, must be approved by the Federal Communications Commission. It's technically illegal for retailers to sell devices that haven't been approved, which is probably why Google had to rapidly remove the Nexus Player pre-order status from the Play Store on Friday. But now the results of the FCC's tests on the Player have been posted to the Commission website.

Microsoft Brings Bing Rewards App To Android, Doesn't Pay You In Google Play Credit

Microsoft has launched its Bing Rewards app into the Play Store, and if you're expecting an experience akin to Google Opinion Rewards, don't. This offering is even easier, assuming you can handle using Bing as a search engine. This may be painless for some folks, but Microsoft apparently wants users enough to pay them. People can win points just by searching for things and eventually redeem them for gift cards and other prizes.

You Can Now Gaze Longingly At The Nexus 6 In The Play Store, But You Can't Buy It Yet

The Nexus 9 went up for pre-order in the Play Store earlier today, but right next to it in the device list is the Nexus 6. Oh, but clicking through presents you with the dreaded "coming soon" message. At least you know where to find it when the time comes.

Google will sell the Nexus 6 in blue and white colors. $649 gets you the 32GB and $699 ups it to 64GB.

Samsung Gear Live Replacement Charger Now Available In The Play Store For $14.99, Moto 360 Charger Coming Soon

When Samsung and LG began selling their Android Wear watches, it seems they made a small oversight: the only way to get the proprietary POGO pin charging docks was to buy the watch. That left customers who had lost or damaged the chargers with no way to get their devices charged again. LG made good on the problem by adding a G Watch Charger to the Play Store back in August, and now Samsung has followed up for the Gear Live as well.
