[New App] The Long-Overdue GameTrailers App Includes Trailers For Games, Among Other Things

The holidays are a very special time for PC gamers, when they must make lightning decisions based on very little information and/or impulse shopping. Of course I'm talking about the Steam sale, and as awesome as Steam is for cheap games, it's bloody terrible for streaming game videos. This being the case, it's a good thing that the long-overdue GameTrailers app has finally landed on Android, and you don't have to rely on Steam's awful embedded trailers.

Sportsball is serious business, or so I'm told. The Coach's Eye app has been a popular way to do slow-motion analysis of swings, kicks, and other sports-type motions, and now you can test it out for the reasonable price of free.

PSA: Restricted User Accounts Can Be Used To Prevent Profile Switching In Updated Netflix App

We waited a little longer to get Netflix profiles in the Android app, but it looks like there is a nice little bonus to compensate us for that delay. The updated Netflix app plugs into the profile system on Android tablets running 4.2 or later. This gives you the option to prevent Netflix profile switching on restricted user accounts.

When you're setting up a restricted account (for example, a kid's account), you have the ability to choose which apps are accessible.
