If there was ever a reason to use lock screen widgets, DashClock is it. This app from Google Engineer Roman Nurik creates a cool widget for your home or lock screen that can show data from multiple apps. It has been a while since it got an update (v1.5 was back in June), but v1.6 is out now with some nice tweaks.

Yesterday Amazon gave away $40 in paid apps as a Christmas gift to Android users willing to install its mobile app store. That deal ran for just one day, but now the company is following up with another set of free apps. None of yesterday's apps are still available, but the new selections include the superb Osmos HD, the point-and-click adventure The Lost City, the adorable Chimpact, and even a few non-games.

The Ouya killed it on Kickstarter, but the reviews of the final product (including ours) were not overwhelmingly positive. Here we are six months along and it can no longer be said that the device is still too new to judge. There have been OS updates, new games, and feature tweaks. So is the Ouya a better gaming experience now?

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.

It's one thing to release an app for Android, but if a developer doesn't keep it up with the times, its usefulness is limited. So Diigo has now updated its Android app to version 2.0, bringing in a desperately needed makeover. The social bookmarking app can now handle notes, pictures, messages, and bookmarks in an interface that won't make anyone whose two-year contract hasn't expired cringe.

Have you been wondering how you'd keep up with Santa's comings and goings this year? I know I have been losing a lot of sleep over it, but fear not – Santa has a special place in Google Maps today only.

If you tap the search bar in Google Maps, there will be a "Where's Santa" banner. Tap on that, and Maps will take you to the sleigh's supposed coordinates.

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. The old paid version is no longer supported – it's all about the free app, but the developer isn't forgetting about those paying customers.

The new free Coach's Eye app has the same functionality as the original $4.99 app, but you access it through an in-app purchase.

The Amazon Appstore hasn't exactly grown to rival Google Play in size or overall quality, but there's still some cool stuff over there. And if you can get it for free? That's a pretty good deal. Amazon is offering $5 to spend on apps and all you have to do is download something.

Starting on December 24th and running through the 28th, anyone who downloads an app or game using the latest version of the Amazon Appstore client will get a $5 credit to spend on Appstore content.

It's time for a good old fashioned non-denominational holiday celebration here at Android Police HQ. What better way to celebrate the season than with some apps and games – and at reasonable prices. The holidays are expensive enough without paying full price for apps, right?

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.
