There's a new update to Google Fit rolling out to [aspiring to be] healthy Android users, but there aren't any obvious signs of changes from just looking at the app. A little digging around under the hood reveals quite a bit is either in the works or just about to launch, including hydration logging and counting reps at the gym. We might also get to track climbing data soon and get notifications for activities that Fit isn't 100% confident about. Oh, and there are some more round icons because it was bound to happen eventually.
There are many Android developers out there who regularly crank out well-designed apps with thousands of downloads, but some of them are less obvious than others. The American Red Cross is one of those developers. Its apps aren't the most exciting things, but they're probably the only ones on your smartphone that could save your life - or, in this case, your kid's. The American Red Cross Swim app is a companion piece of software that wants to help guide you through the process of helping your kid learn how to swim, so they know how to stay afloat when the time comes to dive in.
Sprinkle Islands will feel instantly familiar to fans of the original game, as the core concept is the same. Players still control a water cannon atop a wooden fire truck on an alien world, their goal remains putting out any and all signs of fire, and the degree of challenge is still pretty high. If you haven't already familiarized yourself with this series, you might want to take a second to do so. The fundamentals of this sequel are largely unchanged, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Mediocre has tweaked enough to give the experience a fresh feel, even if some of those changes introduce a fair degree of frustration.
If you're either a fan of Disney's animated show Phineas and Ferb, or you simply prefer your detectives have evolutionarily curious anatomy, you'll want to pay attention. Where's My Perry? is a new game from Disney centered around Perry, also known as Agent P, a super sleuth that's just as comfortable on land as he is in water. Which is handy, because you need water in all of its forms to solve the puzzles in this game.
The game is actually pretty clever and great for kids, as you need to convert H2O between its various forms to complete puzzles by using various lasers.
A video has come to our attention the shows just how harshly you can treat the Motola Defy. It can take all the Hulk-smashings that inevitably result from using Motoblur for more than 10 minutes - in addition to being flushed down a toilet when you're done.
The video is about 3 minutes long, but all the action happens in the first 45 seconds.
The phone gets unapologetically dropped from shoulder-height then thrown into a glass of water, followed by a long length of having Motoblur. Those are the three worst things you can do to a phone, and the Defy takes it all in stride.
