AirDroid Introduces Desktop Widget And Right-Click File Sharing For Windows, New Menu Bar Tabs For Mac, And SMS Search For Both

AirDroid offers one of the more Android-themed ways to get files from your computer to your smartphone or tablet. It's green, there's a bugdroid in the logo, and, well—this isn't the point. Besides, file sharing is just scratching the surface. AirDroid lets you control your device remotely, accessing texts and turning on the camera. Now the developers have rolled out a number of intriguing features in the latest updates to its Windows and Mac desktop clients.

On the Windows side of things, there's a new desktop widget. It lets you access much of the functionality the main client offers without having to load up the full window.

Kappsule's Latest Game 'Battle Golf' Is A Free Way To Defeat Menacing Creatures With A Solid Stroke

Golf balls have much in common with projectile weapons. They're small. They're shaped like musket balls. Sometimes they cut through the air too quickly for the eye to follow. You could do a lot of damage with one, if you think about it.

Developer Kappsule, creator of Wrassling, apparently has. Battle Golf is the result. In this not-quite-a-sports-game, you swing a club at a ball just like you would in a virtual golf course. But when you land that hole-in-one, you're not just showing off your skills—you're doing battle.

See that blowhole at the top of the angry whale? If you drop enough golf balls in there, you can get it to leave you alone.

Snowball Hits Version 2.0, Becomes A Full-Featured Notification Center

Back in October of 2014, a new beta app called Snowball was released. Back then it was a chat head-style multi-messaging client of sorts, which was useful enough in its own right. Snowball 2.0 is out now, and the app has apparently gotten a full overhaul - it's essentially a completely different thing now. Instead of being a messaging client, Snowball is now a full-featured (and damn good-looking) notification center. Check it out:

If I said this didn't look pretty useful, I'd be lying. Don't get me wrong - Android's notification panel has come a long way and is already pretty great, but there's always room for improvement, right?

Pocket Releases Beta Channel With Early Access To New Features, Starting With Recommendations

Pocket lets you take whatever website you don't have time for right this moment and saves it somewhere for you to get back to later. It then reformats this content to make the text easier to read. That's what it does, and for the most part, that's all it needs to do.

[Update: And Singapore] Google Play Movies Now Shows Flicks In Indonesia And Malaysia

Streaming movies from Google Play is rather nice. I sort of scoffed at the feature at first, wondering why I'd want to spend that much money to rent a movie when I could wait and buy a physical copy later. But hey, $3 to $5 really isn't that much compared to watching a film in theaters, and it lets you see a movie much sooner than waiting for the DVD version to drop in price.

The thing is, Play Movies isn't available all over the world.
