DashNotifier For DashClock Reaches The Play Store, Uses Android 4.3 NotificationListener Service To Show Notifications From Any Application

If your device runs a fairly stock version of Android, there's a good chance you've got DashClock set up front-and-center as a lockscreen widget or somewhere on your home screen. While we receive seemingly endless notifications throughout the day, relatively few applications provide support for DashClock to display that information. This is where DashNotifier comes in. It leverages the NotificationListener service added in Android 4.3 to read and display notifications from selected applications as if they had provided extensions of their own.

[New App] Ubisoft Releases Autodance 2014 By Just Dance, Invites You To Dance On Camera And Share The Footage With The World

As an introvert with no sense of rhythm, I'm situated decidedly outside of the target demographic for the Just Dance series (or, perhaps, that could make me exactly the consumer they're aiming for). But given how much money Ubisoft has made since it first released the original title for the Wii, I understand why the company ports the series to any device that could possibly be used as a dance aid.

Latest Twitter Beta Update Shakes Up The UI Again – Removes Hamburger Navigation, Simplifies Tabs, And Adds Floating Buttons

Most developers who use the Google Play beta program don't seem to make monumental changes, but Twitter is really taking the beta label seriously.
