PushBullet-Thumb

PushBullet version 12.2 has just hit the Play Store, and it brings with it a healthy selection of incremental updates that round out an already pleasant user experience. One new such feature is the ability to set how long mirrored notifications stick around on your computer before fading away.

The app also now shows upload progress when pushing a file and gives users the ability to tap a download to cancel it.

If you've been dying to get your hands on CyanogenMod's [kind of] recently-announced screencasting tool, the wait is over. The app has been released to the Play Store via beta channel. There are, of course, a few requisites before the app will work:

Once all of those qualifications have been met, you're free to give this new beta a shot.

Well, this is certainly the nail in Twitter's coffin – Microsoft's Socl has it's own Android app now. What? You've never heard of Socl? It's a social network based around sharing statuses, picture collages, and videos. There's also a strong Bing social search element. But seriously, it's not very popular.

Hangouts-Thumb

Google is rolling out an updated version of Hangouts, and while version 2.0.2 doesn't introduce much in the way of exciting new features, it squashes a handful of annoying bugs introduced when the app took on the ability to handle SMS and MMS messages.

What's New?

The newer, SMS-tackling version of Hangouts came with a few quirks that have been rubbing more than a handful of users the wrong way. For starters, the app converted any text message sent to multiple receivers to an MMS, which is chargeable for many people.

Display-Thumb

One of the Moto X's defining features is Active Display, which lights up the phones screen to display notifications such as messages, missed calls, and the like. That functionality is now the latest Motorola feature to enter the Play Store, where it's easier for the Google-owned company to distribute timely updates and fixes. Speaking of which, the version to land in the Play Store should remove the 1 - 2 second delay some users started encountering when swiping to unlock following the KitKat update.

There are a lot of things to like about about Motorola's bargain wonder the Moto G, but the animated boot logo probably isn't at the top of the list. The boot animation which it shares with the Moto X is admittedly cool, and at least someone at Motorola is paying attention to it, even after launching both phones. The Motorola Boot Services app was published in the Google Play Store today, downloadable only on the Moto G.

Prey-Thumb

Prey Anti-Theft is far from a newcomer to the mobile security scene, and the service offers a few advantages over competing offerings, as it can track and monitor laptops in addition to mobile devices. But it's definitely late to the game when it comes to its latest feature - the option to finally wipe stolen Android devices remotely.

Prey can now remotely erase both your device's internal storage and its SD card.

It's been nearly a year and a half since we last wrote about the Amazon MP3 app, because that's the last time the company did anything interesting with it. Compared to the competition at Google and elsewhere, Amazon's iTunes competitor looks positively stale. Today the Amazon MP3 app gets a fresh coat of paint to bring it more in line with current visual trends, or at least, those trends that are on display in the Kindle Fire tablets.

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.
