Material Power Menu Replaces Lollipop's Standard Power Menu With A Prettier And More Useful Alternative

Before Android 5.0, the Android power menu (reached by pressing and holding the physical power button) included options for an airplane mode and setting the ringer to on, vibrate, or silent. And that was just the AOSP implementation: some manufacturer skins, custom ROMs, and root tools added extras like a screenshot button, a reboot menu, and other goodies. But with Android 5.0, we get... this.

The ICC And Reliance Big Entertainment Release An Official Fantasy Cricket App For The World Cup

Cricket. Cricket. That's the one like baseball, but with the flat bats and a circular field and a ton of players and black tea afterwards, right? I apologize - as an American it's hard for me to concentrate on sports that don't involve constant concussions and commercial breaks every two minutes. But I am reliably informed that Cricket is enjoyed in Britain and all the places that used to be Britain (except this one).

The New 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Game Stays True To The Comic Book Universe

You may remember an X-Men film from last year with the same name as this game, and they do tell the same basic story. The difference, however, is the game is true to the 1981 comic book story line and the movie is... well, not. X-Men: Days of Future Past is also a regular paid game with no in-app purchases.

Facebook Appears To Be Testing A Dialer And Caller ID App For Android, And It's Called... Phone

Facebook, that company that is constantly trying to confuse you by naming its own branded apps after system apps, may launch another app it would now like to confuse you with, and it's called - wait for it - Phone. At least, that's what screenshots from a couple of folks who tipped us seem to say.

Facebook, as we know, generally does major interface updates to its application server-side, so users occasionally get seemingly random glimpses of new features or UI designs before they launch.

Amazon Rumored To Launch 'Unlocked' Service To Offer Paid Apps And Games For Free

Amazon has been giving away one paid app for free each day since the Appstore launched in 2011. It hasn't been the rousing success Amazon probably hoped for, but the Appstore is still doing okay with about 400,000 listings.

Boss Monster Is A Fantasy Card Game Where You Bring Heroes To Their Doom, Now Available For Android Tablets With Online Multiplayer

In Boss Monster, you are the big baddie at the end of a level, and you can only win by killing more good guys than the miscreants you're competing with. You do this by building rooms to expand your dungeon, increasing the amount of damage the environment deals and bettering the odds that the heroes you lure into your lair will die before getting to see your face.

The card game comes in a small box, supports up to four players, is easy for new people to grasp, and allows for an all around good time.

[Bug Watch] Google Now Voice Commands For Setting Reminders Create Alarms Or Calendar Events Instead

A variety of users have begun reporting problems with setting reminders using voice controls in the Google Search app, with the end result being an alarm rather than a reminder. This does not occur when entering the same command with the keyboard, so it would seem to be a server-side issue. Either way, you will want to look out for this bug if you tend to use voice commands for this purpose, because you may be in for a rude awakening - literally.
