Sometimes the name really does say it all. Calendar for Android Wear is a simplistic calendar that people with Android Wear watches can strap to their wrists. It shows the date, keeps track of events, and comes in one of five colors. The app doesn't do much else, but in this case, that's attractive.

The app's usefulness is limited out of the box, as users are restricted to a monthly view and must pay a single in-app purchase of roughly $2 to get access to the daily view with details.

Android Wear apps are continuing to flow into the Play Store, but Wear Mini Launcher might be the most interesting one yet. This app places a slide-out app list on your smart watch, saving you from diving into the options to access things by touch. It was a little wonky at first, but already it's shaping up nicely after a few weekend updates.

Google updated its official Camera app with Wear support recently, but that just makes the watch into a shutter button with image review. Wear Camera Remote is a proof-of-concept app that streams the viewfinder to Android wear and works as a shutter.

It's Monday, and that means it's back to the rat races for a significant portion of the world's population. We can make it a little better by equipping you with some neat apps and games at reasonable prices. They're not going to alleviate the crushing burden of your responsibilities, but at least you can save some money.

When we first wrote about Quantum Paper (the internal name for the material in Material Design), we noted that Google was anticipating a series of updates to its own apps between the introduction and completion of the new design direction - updates which would bring the apps a bit closer to the new design style in a progressive fashion, so that the apps wouldn't undergo fundamental transformations overnight.

Looking back, it is now obvious that Google+ was our first taste of material design, followed by Google's editing apps like docs and sheets.

File browsers are a dime a dozen on Android. Ever since the dawn of the platform, they have been a staple necessity, mostly for power and root users. Despite some manufacturers, like Samsung, shipping their devices with a barebones file manager, third-party clients have always offered more features, sometimes even earning more than 50 million downloads along the way to become some of the most popular apps on the Play Store.

Android Wear does a lot of things well right now, but launching apps by touch is not one of them. If you don't want to shout at your wrist, you have to scroll way to the bottom of the options list to see your installed mini-apps like Keep, Evernote, and IFTTT. Wear Mini Launcher makes it much, much easier by showing all your apps with a quick edge gesture.

There comes a point many, many months after the release of a new version of Android where devoted users just can't quash the desire to get their hands on an even newer version. A preview of Android L is already available for download, but unless you are willing to flash your device and put up with any number of potential bugs, I wouldn't recommend installing it on a phone you actually need to use.

Adobe has multiple Photoshop apps on the Play Store, and the simplest of the bunch has received an update to version 2.3 bringing in a number of new features. Adobe Photoshop Express now expands on the basic editing options it provides. For starters, the latest release lets users vary the intensity of filters.

Blemish removal is another standard photo editing feature introduced in version 2.3. Using the tool is as simple as poking on the spot you want to remove and tapping it again if the first time didn't do a good enough job.

If you're a heavy user of Microsoft's cultishly-beloved OneNote application, good news: the company has just announced that it will be publicly testing a beta version of the Android app via Google's Play Store beta program. Yay!

To sign up, just join the OneNote Google+ community and then head to this page to opt-in to the beta. While Microsoft hasn't announced any new OneNote Beta features just yet, they're saying a new beta version of the app should be going live "soon," so testers will likely be getting some new and interesting things to play with in the coming days or weeks.
