Veer Contacts Widget Makes Quick Work Of Getting In Touch With Your Most Oft-Used Contacts [Sponsored Post]

Overall, most of us would probably say that Android is a pretty efficient mobile OS. Quick access to features and apps that users want—like Google or the camera, for example—are there out of the box, making it easy to do what needs to be done without a lot of hassle. One area that could be improved, however, is something that everyone likely does often: accessing contacts.

That's where a relatively new app called Veer Contacts Widget comes in handy. Now, let's get one thing clear out of the gate: despite the name, this isn't a typical "widget." It's more of a floating app that's accessible from anywhere, at any time.

FiLMiC Pro Brings Advanced Manual Video Capture To Select Android Devices For $10

The video capture app FiLMiC Pro has been on iOS since time immemorial, but now it's on Android too. It brings the kind of granularity and power to video recording that we've thus far really only gotten with still photos on Android. It'll cost you, though, and device compatibility is spotty.

PSA: If 'Touch To Search' Is Gone In Chrome For Android, Here's How To Bring It Back

Touch to Search, which enables users to highlight a single word or line of text in the mobile version of Chrome and instantly search for that text in Google, is pretty neat. It was introduced in the beta build of Chrome for Android version 38 way back in March of last year. But in the latest versions of the app (including the standard release), it's been curiously absent for many users.

Activision Re-releases 'Call Of Duty Black Ops Zombies' Under A New Play Store Listing, Past Purchases Be Damned

Merry Christmas everyone! This jolly message comes to you courtesy of your beloved Activision Publishing developer who has decided to grab a few bucks from your stockings because you've been a bad kid this year and you deserve to be punished for liking Zombie games and causing virtual mayhem.

For some reason, Activision has decided to re-release Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies under a new listing on the Play Store. The first-person shooter that puts you at the line of defense against hordes of zombies dates back to 2012 when Liam called it "interesting" in his review. It has been stagnating on the Play Store with no updates since December 2013 with plenty of reviewers complaining about compatibility, bugs, and overall sluggishness.

YouTube Has A New Pseudo-Drawer For Subscriptions On Tablets

The YouTube app's hamburgerless layout has been with us for a while now, and while it's gotten a mixed bag of reactions, Google is still iterating on it slowly but surely. It seems like the latest development is a new layout on tablets for the subscription tab.

Previously, a strip of avatars lined the top of the content area, with blue dots to indicate whether the channel had a new video for you. In the new layout - which seems to be rolling out pretty quickly from the server-side judging from our inbox - subs have their own sort of pseudo-drawer on the left of the screen.

OUYA Owners Get A $50 Discount On Razer's Forge TV Controller Bundle, Plus $10 Cortex Store Credit

The dream of OUYA was not to be. It turns out that overturning a decades-old industry by disrupting it with mobile hardware and open-source software is a tough row to hoe, and adding on a semi-exclusive game market (you know, that thing that consoles do that's already universally hated) wasn't the best opening move. So OUYA floundered in the maturing set-top box market until Razer snapped it up in the hopes of bolstering its own Forge TV, which had been on the market for months and was already known as the worst option in an extremely limited field.

Huh. Maybe they just wanted some company to commiserate with. 

In any case, the customers who bought and paid for OUYA hardware are getting a couple of dividends out of the deal.
