Android is far from the first platform Todoist has landed on, but fans of the service have been anxiously waiting. Todoist is a clean, snappy to-do list manager that has a ton of cloud features to keep your busy life under control. The app is free to use in basic mode, but the advanced features are gonna cost you.

The main interface in Todoist is just a super-minimalist task list organized in chronologic order.

For whatever reason, there are some users who absolutely can't stand Android 4.2's new lockscreen features, like widgets and the left-to-right swipe gesture that opens the camera. There's even a list of "bugs" with lockscreen widgets over at reddit, citing everything from simple widget removal to the glowing rectangle when the device is unlocked as reasons to hate the feature.

If you fall into that camp and wish you could just get rid of the new tweaks, we have good news: there's a new app that lets you do just that.

In ancient Greece, Apollo was—among other things—the god of music. In ancient 2012, Apollo became the official music app for CyanogenMod. It was gorgeous, functional, and completely customizable, as you might expect from the world's most popular ROM. At the time, we were told that this lovely bit of software would be coming to the Market "in the coming weeks." That was back when we still called it the Market.

PC gamers alive in the 1990's will remember the XCOM series of games as bastions of the strategy genre. In each, you took control of a global organization that was tasked with defending the Earth from aliens; you did so in turn-based missions, where you killed enemies, escorted VIPs, and defended objectives.

Now imagine that (with some tweaks, of course) on Android.

The premise of The Hunters: Episode One is relatively simple: you are the leader of a team of mercenaries, and you can take different contracts on a daily basis.

Several days ago, Titanium Backup received a pretty major update that brought the ability to create flashable update.zip files of your backups. Since the devs behind TB apparently never sleep, they just pushed another update to the app that brings several enhancements to the update.zip functionality, as well as support for Android 4.2:

What's in this version:

• Added the ability to batch restore system apps (not just data). See the new "Exclude system APKs" option.

While there seems to be no shortage of Twitter clients on the Google Play store, they all seem to be a mixed bag of different features and reliability. Some will do push, while others are free; some won't do notifications, and some animations are downright sluggish. Sadly, unless you have the time to go through every app to see which one fits the best, you'll likely need to settle for "close enough."

Echofon looks to add one more to the pile with the beta of their popular client.

HD Widgets, one of the nicest looking widget sets for Android, just got updated with support for the new lockscreen widgets in Android 4.2. This will add a bit more usefulness to the rather bleak set of stock widgets offered by Google for the time being, bringing information like weather, various toggles, battery status, and, of course, a slew of different clocks.

HD widgets is highly customizable, allowing users to choose from various backgrounds, fonts, colors, theme packs, and a lot more - so you should be able to find something that matches the look you're going for.

Do you love the sea of reflective dots that adorn the back of the Nexus 4? And do you, having had your pre-order delayed up to three weeks, absolutely crave that shiny goodness in your life right now? There's a live wallpaper for that: the Nexus 4 Dot live wallpaper, to be precise.

Actually, it's quite pretty, and decently tweakable (though there are ads in the settings menus).
