Knightmare-Thumb

One of Ouya's most popular exclusives has now made its way into the Play Store. On its original platform, Knightmare Tower captivated gamers with its addictive mix of simplistic gameplay and adorable visuals, placing players in control of a knight with a rocket thrusting him by fiends and through ceilings in a quest to rescue multiple princesses in need. Now the game is available for a mobile device near you

Knightmare Tower won't provide the most diverse experience, as each level consists of flying upwards, taking repeated downward slashes at ghouls pursuing below.

The odds are against most people in the Android world having heard of TouchDevelop by Microsoft. From the start, it was designed to be used with a small touchscreen interface by hobbyists and intended to ease people into programming. Things haven't changed too much in that department, but the project has grown from its humble beginnings on Windows Phone to supporting iOS, Windows, Mac, and now Android.

The app actually doesn't do very much, it only handles push notifications and acts as a shortcut to the website.

Reading long articles on the web can be a pain, but Pocket makes it easy to save and read content in its slick minimalist UI. This app has been great since it was redesigned (it used to be ReadItLater), and the most recent update makes things even better with the ability to share and tag content as you're saving it.

Now when you save a page to Pocket on Android, there will be a Quick Save popup at the bottom with a direct link to the app, a tag button, and a share button.

Wondering what that sign says, but you don't speak the lingo? You might want to figure it out – signs convey important information. Maybe it says "keep off the grass," but it could also say "high risk of electric shock." Word Lens can help with that by doing live translation of text using optical character recognition and the camera. It's neat, and the newest version adds support for tablets.

Anchorman-Thumb

There's a sequel to 2004's Anchorman about to hit theaters in a matter of weeks, and on the off chance you have yet to see a commercial for it, Paramount Digital Entertainment has dropped a movie-themed game into the Play Store to get you pumped. As anchorman Ron Burgundy puts it, Scotchy Scotch Toss "combines the skill of tossing ice cubes into a glass with the art of not moving." If that sounds exciting, then you fit precisely into the demographic Paramount is trying to target.

Sony has been surprisingly quiet on the smartwatch front since launching its SmartWatch 2. But now that the Galaxy Gear is gaining steam (or at the very least, getting a hell of a lot of advertising airtime) they've set out to put a little extra oomph in their Xperia-styled digital watch. A quick update to the Android app on the Google Play Store has given the device a few expanded capabilities.

If you've ever looked at your Android keyboard and thought, "Man, that thing is just too opaque," then this is a big day for you. Fleksy keyboard has left beta and is available for download in Google Play. This alternative input method uses aggressive autocorrect and gestures to do away with much of the keyboard UI – even making it completely transparent.

Fleksy seems to be one of those things that either works for you or doesn't – Not a lot of middle ground.

Quip-Thumb

Traditionally word processors have tasked themselves with producing nice, printable documents. Mobile versions have followed up with the unenviable task of replicating this functionality on much smaller screens. Quip throws this entire concept out of the window, instead creating a writing experience built for the ground up for mobile devices. The team released an alpha version over the summer, but it was little more than a demo of the iOS version of the app.
