VNC Viewer 2.0 (From RealVNC) Remotes Into The Play Store With Material Design, Immersive Fullscreen, And More

Running remote desktop software from an Android device has a different purpose than doing the same from a traditional PC. When you're connecting from a laptop, you're probably accessing an application at home or work that only exists on that one machine. But on Android, you have the option to greatly expand what your phone or tablet can do.

In a way, it feels like cheating.

Bombing Bastards (Previously Android TV Only) Launches For All Android Devices, And It's Completely Free

The arcade-style game Bombing Bastards hit Android TV last year, but now it's finally available on regular Android devices. This is actually a separate listing from the Android TV game, and it's completely free. Yes, like the real kind of free, not free-to-play.

Stylish Snowboarding Endless Runner Alto's Adventure Slides Into The Play Store

Android isn't hurting for endless runners, but at this point, most of them don't bring anything new to the table. That can't be said of Alto's Adventure, a new iOS port from prolific publisher Noodlecake and developer Snowman. What it lacks in revolutionary design it makes up for in pure, dripping style: everything from the pastel coloring to the shifting weather to the smooth 2D animations oozes with careful design. If you're tired of a never-ending parade of "retro" 8-bit games on mobile, Alto's Adventure might just be the cure.

The gameplay itself isn't all that interesting. Your player character snowboards down a gently-sloping mountain, chasing llamas, grabbing coins, jumping over rocks, and grinding on improbably load-bearing bunting.

Qualcomm Announces New ARM Chips, LTE Modem, And Wearable Platform

Qualcomm did not have a great 2015 with the issues surrounding the 810, but it's looking to turn that around in 2016. The Snapdragon 820 might help, but the fancy high-end chips aren't everything. Qualcomm has announced several new mid-range ARM chips, as well as a new modem and a wearable-specific SoC.

Pujie Black Gets A Material Makeover, Shortcut Actions, Central Color Palette, And Plenty Of Nice Improvements

Out of all the watch maker applications on Android, Pujie Black is my favorite. I find the interface easier than WatchMaker, plus it's accessible on Android instead of requiring a web browser like Facer. I also love that I paid once for the app and I can get all of the community's creations for free and edit them to fit my personal needs. There's a learning curve to figuring out what everything does inside the app, but once you've got the hang of it, there are hundreds of things you can change to specifically tailor it to your preference. I personally like seeing my steps, the date, and PST timing (Artem's timezone) as the 3 Pujie indicators, and I love having a tap action to play/pause Pocket Casts specifically.

[Update: Now $0.99, 80% Off] Lara Croft GO Is 60% Off On The Play Store, Down To $1.99 From $4.99 In Many Countries

To celebrate the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox consoles, Square Enix is discounting its Lara Croft GO game by 60% on the Play Store. It's a flash sale though, so you might want to hurry and grab it if the game seemed appealing to you or if you liked its spiritual predecessor Hitman GO.

Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle adventure, where you play your turn moving your character along predefined paths, then wait for your opponents to make their move. There isn't a lot of urgency in the game, so you can take your time exploring the 75 different levels and figuring out the best way to finish them, all while listening to a nice soundtrack and enjoying the smooth animations and low-poly-like designs.

Facer Goes Freemium, Offers Lots Of Exclusive Watchface Designs And A New Online Editor

Before there was even a watchface API for Android Wear, Facer was the go-to app to create and customize your watch's design. The app was later updated to conform with Google's watchface API and has since enjoyed a nice spot as one of the best watchmakers for Android Wear. Competition has gone up however, with apps like Pujie Black and WatchMaker getting a share of the watch customization pie.

So Facer is now trying to grab more users and entice everyone to join its platform by lowering the entry barrier — and also seemingly planning an iOS launch for the Apple Watch.
