GameFly Streaming Service Comes To Android (Sort Of) As An Amazon Fire TV Exclusive

There are multiple ways to stream high-end games to your Android device. There's NVIDIA's GRID, OnLive (edit: Oh, right, Sony bought OnLive), and something thrown together by a guy on the XDA Developers forum. Maybe you want more options. Well, if you own an Amazon Fire TV, you can now add GameFly to this list.

The GameFly streaming service derives from the company's acquisition of Playcast. A look at the latter's website gives you an idea of what you can expect from the experience, as the interface matches the one Amazon has shown off alongside the GameFly Streaming app already uploaded to its app store.

It has become accepted fact that Imgur is the best way to host images on the internet. Stop it with that Photobucket nonsense already. The official Imgur Android app has existed for a while, but it wasn't an ideal experience. Now with today's v2.0 update, it should be much better.

BBM Gets A Material Coat Of Paint In Its Latest Beta, With Private Chats And Message Editing

I never thought I'd live to see the day when BBM adopted an actually decent design on Android. I remember using the messaging service when it first came out on our platform, and it was a horrid experience from the tiny emojis to the clunky interface to the fact that everything didn't look right on Android.
