In case you were getting bored with the already reasonable selection of official Nexus 5 accessories on the Play Store, Google has just slipped in a new series of Google-branded snap cases for the phone, priced at $29.99 and coming in Black, Aqua, Silver, White, and Clear variants.

The cases look pretty sleek, wrapping around the sides and back of the device, adding a Google logo to the back, and leaving the top and bottom edges open.

Play Store carrier billing support has rolled out to another mobile provider, 3 (Drei) in Austria. If you head over to Google's carrier billing support page, the site doesn't list it just yet, but thanks to a tip, we've laid our eyes on screenshots suggesting otherwise. Here, feast your eyes as well.

Why is this a big deal? Some people don't want to provide Google with their credit card numbers.

It's a great big world out there, and sometimes you need wheels to see it. Uber offers rides from friendly folks through its mobile app, and all it costs you is a bit of cash money. The Android app isn't bad, but it could use some work. Luckily, Uber is opening up an Android beta program with a completely revamped version of the app.

While developers from a startling number of countries can post apps to the Google Play Store for users around the world to download, setting up the infrastructure for these developers to sell paid apps - and more importantly, to get paid for their apps - isn't quite so widespread. Today Google is opening up Google Wallet Merchant registration to eight more countries, allowing developers in those countries to get paid in their local currency.

Android gamers now have access to Treehouse's Steam Greenlit game Dethroned. This competitive action RTS tasks players with building up a ragtag band of soldiers, throwing up suitable defenses, and raiding opponents with all the force pixelated heroes can muster. The experience sits somewhere between an RTS and tower defense game, and it comes with the expected emphasis on multiplayer.

Note, early access here means early beta, so expect this adventure to be a bit rough around the edges.

Google bought Nest and its smart thermostat a few months ago, and now it's integrating the product into its ecosystem more completely on Earth Day. The Nest Learning Thermostat is now available in the Play Store. It's selling for $249 and Google will plant a tree for every unit sold today, presumably because of Earth Day. Yay, Earth!

One of the more far-reaching Android Police stories this year was our exclusive write-up of Virus Shield, an impressively popular anti-virus app that managed to make it to the top of the Play Store's sales charts in less than a week, despite the fact that it did absolutely nothing. After digging into the app's code, Artem Russakovskii and various Android Police readers found that it was nothing more than a few images and a toggle.

For a game with the word "racing" in the title, there's very little of it to be found in Smash Bandits Racing. This title is all about outrunning the cops and destroying as much roadside property in the process as possible. The more you smash, the more you earn. The more you earn, the better your car. That's pretty much all there is to the premise, and that's okay. This visually pleasing top-down racer doesn't need much else.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to hit movie theaters in a matter of weeks, but that can't happen until Gameloft releases a mobile video game adaptation first. Fortunately there's no reason to fret. The game is here, so anyone who can't wait to live vicariously through a teenager in blue and red spandex can scratch that itch right away.

The game has the Spider-Man essentials covered. There's plenty of web-slinging, fist-swinging, and wall-climbing goodness to be found here, along with 3D cutscenes, voice-acting, and the minimal amount of effort needed to secure more money from in-app purchases.
