If you know the name of the app you'd like to download... press one. If you're still using Google TV... press two. [Beep] Yes, that venerable service, Moviefone has been ported to Google TV. Why Google TV? Because it was there, and Moviefone has long since evolved beyond the phone line.

The Google TV version has a different UI than the regular Android app cousin, but that makes sense.

Driving is okay, but it's a little mundane, don't you think? If you need more fun during your road trips, Volkswagen is all over that with its new SmileDrive app. This app follows your trips and turns them into interactive online adventures. It doesn't even require a Volkswagen – just a car with Bluetooth.

The app uses Google+ logins to connect the people in the car, then creates a map for each trip.

Ustream seems to have found its niche in the live streaming of video. The app lets you broadcast live to any number on viewers of WiFi or mobile data. In the new update, developers seem to have spruced up the joint. Ustream is now much more attractive and should also have better video performance.

Speak softly and carry a big user base. It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but that might as well be the unofficial motto of WhatsApp. The cross-platform messaging service has been quietly spreading over the last couple of years, coming to every major mobile platform and gaining over 300 million active monthly users, according to AllThingsD. What's next for the quiet revolution? Voice communication.

Well, sort of - it's more like a short voicemail message, not a live two-way conversation.

Today's Twitter update has a keen focus on security. Back in May, the company introduced an SMS-based two-factor authentication system for signing into the service. Now login requests can be be verified using just the mobile app. Users can sign into Twitter and enjoy the extra security of two-factor authentication without having to provide a phone number or worry about cell reception. The app also generates backup codes just in case your phone isn't available when you want to sign in later on.

Klyph-Thumb

Not everyone is a big fan of the official Facebook app. Most people probably just tolerate it as a better alternative than accessing the mobile site from a web browser, and judging by the persistently average rating on Google Play, a sizable number of people actively hate it. That's why there's always a steady stream of third-party Facebook clients to choose from, such as the promising Klyph for Facebook. This particular option takes the popular social network and douses it in the same coat of paint as Google+'s Android app.

This app is called S.M.T.H., which stands for Send Me To Heaven. It's a cunning double entendre, you see. Not only are you supposed to toss your phone upward to the heavens, but you are also liable to break it, thus sending it to broken electronics heaven. Apple refused to allow this game in the App Store, but we lucky Android users get the chance to live dangerously.

The flick-gesture for quickly opening the camera app on the Moto X and new DROIDs has been repeatedly highlighted by Motorola. And like any buzz-worthy feature in an upcoming phone, it's been almost immediately duplicated. Twisty Launcher popped into the Play Store last night, promising to deliver a customized version of this gesture-based feature, with the added benefit of being compatible with any device or app.

The name "launcher" is a bit of a misnomer - Twisty launches apps, but it isn't a homescreen in any way.

There are more than a few music players available for Android, but you could search the Play Store for days without finding one quite so full-featured as Music Player (Remix). The developer seems to have thrown every possible bell and whistle into the local playback app, and topped it off with a swipe-based interface and some impressive extras. It's available in the Play Store for $4.99, with a 14-day trial app available as well.

Last Updated: October 12th, 2013

Google is rolling out an update to the Android Play Store with version 4.3.10. The new update follows version 4.2.9 which was discovered on July 25th, only a week and a half ago, and brought several very minor changes. Unlike the previous update, 4.3.10 is more significant in user-facing features (yay, new stuff!).

What's New?

There's a new Ron in town, and it's me. Ron's not the only one capable of doing teardowns, and we've already scheduled a duel to sort it out once and for all (whoever lives gets to continue the teardown tradition at AP).
