Regardless of whether you use Amazon's app store for Android, there's no denying that a free app every day is a good deal. Of course, sometimes the deals are better than usual. Today's free app of the day is Servers Ultimate Pro, which is normally $8.99.
For those not acquainted with the app, it allows users to run servers from their mobile device, with over 70 protocols supported (see the full list in the app's description), and a heaping handful of network tools. Read More

Microsoft has two versions of its Xbox One SmartGlass app in the Play Store—regular and beta. The beta app is getting an update today with some previously announced (and pretty neat) functionality. However, you'll only get the full effect if you're in a supported country, which for once is not the US.
I know, I know. You are tired of filter and effect apps, and so am I. But this Afterlight app looks good, really good. After starting out on iOS and gaining popularity due to its simplicity and quality, the app has just been released on the Play Store for Android devices running 4.0.3 and up.
HTC has just updated the Zoe app in Google Play with support for a few non-HTC phones, but support will supposedly expand soon. The Zoe app isn't the same as HTC's Zoe camera feature in the HTC One, but it might still be interesting if you're down with making and sharing videos.
The ability to mark unwanted email as spam and check the junk folder for potentially mislabeled messages is a core feature for any email client, but until now, Dropbox's stylish Mailbox app has lacked it. With version 1.1, that changes. The app now places the spam folder inside the sidebar with its other pre-existing categories, and tucked away inside each email's menu we now find the new option to "mark as spam."
This isn't all the developers have been up to. Read More
Well this is amusing. The International Olympic Committee has released an Android app into the Play Store that is arriving just in time to stream video from this year's Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will take place in Nanjing, China. Ironically, though, China is the one place where Olympic TV is explicitly labeled not to work. It's written in plain sight on the app's Play Store page.
The event will take place this year from August 16th to the 28th and provide teenagers with a venue to compete in all manner of athletic games. Read More
The mere existence of a Humble Bundle app made it a little easier to sideload all those APK files, but the quality of the app was seriously lacking. Well, now it's all fixed up and out of beta. The v2.0 update to the Humble Bundle app brings a new design and easier access to all of your purchased content.
Google's Niantic Labs operates as a semi-autonomous company within Google that works on projects like Ingress and the travel app Field Trip. Ingress gets most of the attention, but now Field Trip might become a bigger part of all Android users' lives. Data from Field Trip is about to be integrated with Google Now to make sure you know what cool stuff is around when you're away from home.
If you've managed to stick with Ingress for a year or two now, then maybe you should show others just how committed you are. There's no need for anything extravagant. Those of you who happen to own an Android Wear device can just head over to the Play Store and give this free Ingress-integrated watchface a download. Then when people see it, they will be, well, just as confused as they were when they saw you hanging out by that old, abandoned record store last weekend. Read More
