Devolver Digital has consistently brought some of its published titles to Android, so long as you're lucky enough to own a SHIELD-branded machine.

Google has continued improving Snapseed since it bought the app a while back, which is a refreshing departure from the usual way of things (looking at you Microsoft). Today, v2.5 of Snapseed is rolling out on Android and that other platform with a few notable changes. The official changelog isn't up yet, but the Snapseed G+ account has the details and a demo video.
Have you even seen a phone launch occur in space? No, you haven't. And after OnePlus announces its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 3, you may feel like you have. The company intends to launch its latest phone from a virtual space station.
