Amazon has finally (finally!) brought its Prime Instant Video service to Android devices with an Instant Video app available through its own app store.

The news comes as part of an update to version 5.0 of Amazon's own app in the Play Store, which sees a broader content shift - the new Amazon app allows users to access Amazon's entire digital catalog, meaning that - besides instant video content - users can shop for (and install) apps from Amazon's app store.

It never ceases to amaze me how much rooted users can get done with the Xposed Framework customization engine. The latest add-on module lets you expand the somewhat basic canned responses available on Android Wear-enabled text messaging apps. With WearResponses, you can add in just about any custom message to the list that appears on your watch, which should be handy for specific work replies that are too unique for voice detection.

The folks over at Comedy Central have hit up Google Play with an official Android app, and it's looking pretty good. The company's promising full episodes available the day after they air, stand-up specials, and access to some older content - such as every episode of Chappelle's Show. The app can toss up a TV schedule if you just want to know what's coming up next.

A TV subscription is required for most of the content, though the Play Store page says a login isn't required to view the latest episodes.

Todoist

Todoist is a simple to-do list manager that syncs automatically across a large number of platforms. The Android app extends much of the service's functionality to mobile phones and tablets, much of which we've detailed in the past. There's Google Now integration, DashClock support, and a clean UI that looks at home on KitKat devices.

But there's a downside. There are no shortage of to-do list apps available for Android, yet since the beginning, Todoist has charged a monthly or annual fee to get access to its full set of features.

It's been said that all charitable acts are, at their core, selfish - that while giving your time or money to people who need it is noble in and of itself, the motivation is to make yourself feel better. That doesn't mean that charity is bad, and it's certainly something to be encouraged no matter the circumstance. But understanding human motivation can help drive people to do even more positive things.

Twitter

People talk on Twitter, they crack jokes, they share pictures, and they even try to sell things. Just as users used to have to link out to images before the service started offering that service natively, users will soon be able to make purchases without having to hop out to another site. Twitter is currently testing a feature that will embed a buy button directly into tweets.

When a user decides they want to buy something, Twitter will prompt them for their shipping and payment information.

Watch-Thumb

WatchON is a Samsung-exclusive offering that serves as a universal remote and TV guide all bundled up into one place. When the Galaxy S5 launched earlier this year, the Korean conglomerate released an updated version of WatchON for its new flagship device and introduced the app to the Play Store for the first time. Yet despite this Google Play presence, the updated version remained exclusively available to the Galaxy S5, and Samsung's other handsets were left with an older version of the pre-installed software.

It really is staggering how much customization you can do with the flexible Xposed Framework, even on a stock phone or tablet. The latest interesting Xposed module adds some much-needed options to Chrome for Android, at least if you're a root user who knows your way around the tool. ChromePIE is not a delicious browser-flavored snack cake, it's a module that adds swiping controls to Chrome, modeled after the popular LMT-PIE navigation bar replacement.

A month ago, Lyft announced, almost simultaneously with Uber, its Line ride-sharing service. At the time, Line was only available in San Francisco and accessible from the service's iOS app. The location limitation is still there, but Line has just made its way to the Android side through an update to the Lyft app.
