Instagram Announces Layout, A Collage App Arriving On Android Sometime In The Coming Months

For mobile photographers, collage apps are second only to filters in their ability to take low-res images and make them look somewhat interesting. Rather than continue to cede this area to competing apps, Instagram has decided to create its own dedicated piece of software. It's called Layout.

New Chromecast Buyers Will Get 2 Free Months Of Hulu Plus From October 1st Until The End Of December

When the Chromecast first launched, it came with three free months of Netflix. That was a great deal, because at $7.99 a month, this meant that buyers were getting back the majority of the money they paid for the device. Well, Google's next Chromecast offer utilizes similar appeal. From October 1st until the end of this year, the company will offer two free months of Hulu Plus with the purchase of every new Chromecast.

Flappy Bird's Creator Dong Nguyen Unveils His Upcoming Game 'Swing Copters,' Aka Upward Flappy Bird

When developer Dong Nguyen first released Flappy Bird, it took the Apple App Store and Google Play by storm. Some people called the game addictive. Some thought of it as brilliant in its simplicity. We here at Android Police were so bold as to call it apparently entertaining. Well now the developer is back and ready to bestow upon the world a follow-up game that looks just as mindbogglingly and unreasonably frustrating - Swing Copters.

Future Xbox One Update Will Soon Let You Stream TV To The SmartGlass Android App, Coming First To Europe

A number of new and interesting features are headed towards the Xbox One, but I'm going to ignore most of them.

Android And PC Cross-Device Clipboard Syncing Coming Soon To Pushbullet

The Pushbullet folks crank new functionality into their nifty push notification app so often that it would almost be more newsworthy if they stopped, but until that day comes, here's another cool feature that we're happy to see in the works.

OTTTD (Over The Top Tower Defense) Is Coming To Android Tomorrow (May 22nd), And It Looks Like It Lives Up To The Name

If there's something missing from most mobile tower defense games, it's a little dash of crazy. The upcoming OTTTD says right in the name what you're getting – it's a crazy over-the-top game that merges traditional tower defense with real-time strategy and a bit of role-playing. It also has a giant cybernetic shark with rocket launchers, which, c'mon... that's awesome.

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Drops Into The Play Store This May

The response to the first Warhammer 40k game on Android wasn't stellar, but that's mainly because it didn't look much like the epic gameplay we'd expect from the franchise. Well, perhaps the newly announced Warhammer 40,000: Carnage will get closer to the mark.
