It looks like Google is gearing up for the Glass Explorer program, launching the MyGlass companion app and a new Glass setup page, both accessible to the general public.

The companion app relies on Google's now-signature "Card UI," and the listing's screenshots show off some of the app's functionality, though Google reminds us "if you don't have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time. Sorry about that." The description goes on to comfort readers, however: "But if you swipe the screenshots to the right, you'll see there's a picture of a puppy in pajamas.

Press, arguably the most well-designed Reader client of them all, got a sizeable update today. It's the "biggest update yet," in fact. Climbing up to version number 1.2, Press got some useful new features. Though this update isn't the one with which Press migrates to "a new backend syncing solution" as it is promised to do once Reader takes its final breath, it's definitely an update worth looking at.

First up, Press now has widgets, both large and small.

Don't drink and drive. Ever. Now that we've got that out of the way, Breathometer, the smartphone-powered breathalyzer, has reached its Indiegogo goal about six times over. What does that mean for you? Cheap BAC tests for everyone! The $20 device aims to make it inexpensive and easy to know when you're too intoxicated to drive. This will, naturally, replace the more commonplace test of "Have I had any alcohol? Yes?

Google Voice is a great service for replacing your carrier's voicemail and texting options. If you need something that's a bit more robust, however, SendHub has launched on Android and allows business-class users to set up a phone number (or set of numbers) and get texting and calling for free or cheap, depending on what class of service you need.

Free users can get 60 voice minutes, 500 messages, and 3 groups of 50 contacts for their first line.

In the cutthroat world of mobile office suites, developers are always trying to bring more features to the table so you'll pick their offering as your go-to. And when it comes to that arena, I personally can't say anyone does it better than Mobile Systems with Office Suite Pro. It's been my personal choice for, well, a long time.

Today the office-on-the-go was updated to version 7.1, which brings with it several new features, including some rather unique options:

What's in this version:

New features in 7.1:
*Oxford Dictionary of English integration (available as a separate add-on product)
*Ability to perform Google search form Word documents
*Insert image from camera (in Word/Excel/PowerPoint)
*Better compatibility with QuickSpell
*Tables resize in Word (separate branches)
*Dual screen support
*Links and Shadows support in PowerPoint
*Image replace in Word
*Improved font formatting and Autofill with cell dragging in Excel
*Improved UI in Excel sheets
*Sheets reordering in Excel

As you can see in the above list, this version has "dual screen support" – whatever that means (seriously, what does that mean?

If you've tried as many apps and games as we have, you've probably come across one or two that were great... with the exception of annoying, vaguely spammy notification alerts. Starting with Jelly Bean 4.1, there's a simple and somewhat obscure solution: check the App Info menu to disable notifications. But that can get tedious, especially if you're setting up a new device. Developer Giorgi Dalakishvii has created a more elegant solution, which puts notification settings for all your apps in one handy place.

Unified Remote, in short, is a great app. Its claim to being "easily the most feature-filled PC remote" may have merit, as Artem will attest. The app, in conjunction with a PC-compatible server, will allow your device to control your mouse, keyboard, and favorite software (think Spotify, Winamp, VLC, Hulu, iTunes, etc.) via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Besides having impressive (and incredibly handy) functionality, Unified Remote impresses with a clean, easy-to-use interface.

Football season is an agonizing five months away, with only the slow, pedantic fields of baseball to satiate American sports fans until then. But every spring, the NFL throws a taste to football fans going through withdrawal, in the form of the NFL Draft. And the official NFL Mobile app is there to cover all of it (via the NFL Network cable channel) so long as you use Verizon.

The latest update to NFL Mobile prepares it for the Draft, beginning on Thursday, April 25th.

If math is the bane of your existence, Wolfram Alpha has probably been of great use to you. It's a powerful tool, but it can be a pain to enter mathematical functions. The newest apps from the Wolfram Alpha team take a more focused approach to helping you with your homework. The algebra and calculus course assistants put all the operations you need right up front so you can get the right answer faster than your stupid meat-space brain can ever hope to.

Hey! Facebook Home is here, and you can totally have it. So long as you have a compatible phone, of course. It just so happens that I have one such phone laying on my desk (an HTC One X+), so I figured I'd give this whole Facebook as your phone experience a shot. Been playing with it for around an hour or so when I started writing this, and it's... different.
