Adobe's Photoshop Express is an app we haven't actually talked about in quite some time, but with the slew of more advanced image-editing applications making their way to Android (like Snapseed, for example), Adobe thought it was time to show the aging application some love.

Today's release brings version 2.0 to the market, and it's been completely redesigned from the ground up. Adobe has taken care to ensure the app is fully compatible with KitKat, as well as optimize it to be faster than ever.

Unlocking our phones is quite the hassle. Sticking a PIN or password on the lock screen is your most reliable option, but inputting that information every time admittedly gets old. There's face unlock, but that's too easy to circumvent. As for fingerprint scanning? The required hardware isn't exactly widespread. So now Descartes Biometrics is offering users the ability to unlock their smartphones... using their ears.

Once installed, ERGO serves as your phone's lockscreen.

We're all for psychedelic games around here, and if said game also happens to incorporate some sort of logical gameplay and pretty scenery, we're definitely interested. That basically describes Polymous' upcoming game God of Light, which the company recently teased. There's no point in spending countless words trying to explain the look of the game, especially considering that there's a nice video teaser that displays the gameplay perfectly:

According to Polymous' blog post about the game, you play as a little thing called "Shiny," and the goal is to reflect light off of the colorful flower-looking things in order to "save the universe from impending darkness." Sounds like a lot of responsibility for a thing named Shiny.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got an ambitious MMO in beta, an endless runner that will give you the Tremors, a card-based tower defense game, an old-school space shooter, and an unconventional puzzler.

Most games that get released for Android are decidedly casual. They're intended for quick, pick-up-and-play encounters when you have a few moments to kill while waiting in the fast food line or in the back seat of a cab. Most, frankly, can't compare to the lean-back experience we get from console games (or the lean-forward immersion of their PC brethren). Square Enix's Deus Ex: The Fall is a different beast entirely.

You can't spend all day sitting at the computer, but sometimes remote access is almost as good. VNC Viewer from Real VNC is a way for you to connect to a computer through any number of VNC clients, and it's pretty popular. However, it used to be a $10 app. Put your wallet away – it's free now.

The app dropped to $0.99 early today, then to free. As we all know, when an app is made free in Google Play, it cannot be made into a paid app again.

On the surface, Table Top Racing looks like just another mobile racing game. The cars are simple, the graphics are charming, and nothing about the title suggests any semblance of depth. But hold on to your cereal, because the cars about to drift their away across your kitchen table are packing more horsepower than it seems. Table Top Racing comes to us from the creator of Wipeout (Nick Burcombe, now CEO of Playrise Digital), and while this release may not have that series' over-the-top futuristic spectacle, it has enough content to suggest it was made by someone who knows what they are doing.

Candy Crush Saga has three words in the title, but game developer King only got a trademark approved for the first one. That doesn't mean, however, that the second two are fair game. It turns out a few weeks ago King filed a Notice of Opposition with the USPTO regarding someone else's trademark request. The application in question was for The Banner Saga, a turn-based PC RPG. King objects because it includes the word 'saga.' Yes, seriously.

Minuum-Thumb

Most current smartwatches, such as the Pebble and the Galaxy Gear, serve as notification hubs for whatever smartphone is paired to them, but this limitation is something several Kickstarter projects have sought to change by effectively turning smartwatches into phones themselves. This approach doesn't address how ludicrous it is to peck out words on such a tiny screen, but Minuum, the Android keyboard that fits the entire alphabet into a single row, could just be the ideal solution.
