A pair of Amazon apps have popped up in the Play Store, but they're both for pieces of hardware you can't get yet. The Amazon Echo app is the companion to Amazon's bizarre connected speaker, and the Fire TV remote app adds functionality to the Fire TV Stick. I would wager the second will get more downloads.

There are different approaches to making email simpler and faster to deal with. Google's Inbox tries to group your communications by type, other apps transform email into tasks, and some keep the same ol' concept we're all used to but sprinkle some useful options here and there. WeMail adopts this third approach, while still attempting to interfere (mostly for the better) with the way your inbox is displayed.

WeMail pulls your email from Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, and AOL, and groups it by sender, essentially collapsing your inbox into a more manageable size.

Amazon is branching off into all sorts of media. Not content to provide you solely with digital books (through text or audio), magazines, TV shows, movies, and whichever apps it can offer alongside the Play Store, it's working with game developers to bring folks exclusive games as well. The latest product of this effort is Tales From Deep Space, which has landed in the Amazon Appstore for $6.99.

If there ever was a reason to use the Amazon Appstore, this is it. Monument Valley, the game that has enchanted and awed (almost) everyone who played it is being offered for free today by Amazon, down from its original price of $3.99.

While it's been available on iOS for some time, United updated its Android app today in order to add support for a rather cool feature: on-device entertainment. Instead of having to deal with that atrocious LCD on the headrest, now you can watch your in-flight movies and TV on your own phone or tablet.

This is likely both a blessing and a curse. Who knows what the stream quality is like (anyone with an iPad who's used it want to chime in?), not to mention the reliability.

You may not use WhatsApp to send messages, but it's still the most popular messaging platform in the world. As such, it's a big deal when the switch gets flipped and all those messages are suddenly encrypted. That's what the company is doing now thanks to the just-announced integration of the TextSecure protocol from Open Whisper Systems.

Hobbit-Thumb

When you've already created a browser-based interactive experience that lets players explore a 3D recreation of various locales spread throughout Middle-earth, how do you up your game? You add multiplayer. At least, that's what Google's decided to do. The company has updated its "A Journey Through Middle-earth" Chrome experiment with the ability for players to challenge each other to a bout of Hobbit-inspired fun.

Google developers designed the game using web technologies such as WebRTC and WebGL.

Let's change the way we think about Google Glass for a moment. At the end of the day, they're just too jarring for the average person to feel comfortable wearing in public. To people who don't know what they are, they're weird. To people who do, they're $1,500 worth of easily-stolen accessory being flaunted on your face.

But for performing specific-tasks, Glass makes sense. If they can help you perform surgery, why not?

Facebook knows the future is in mobile. It just isn't entirely sure what to do about it. The company has experimented with creating its own home launcher and marketing a dedicated Facebook phone, but neither found all that much success. It created a news app called Paper, which has yet to make it to Android. Then it followed up with a Snapchat clone (we got that one). Now the social giant is releasing an app that goes back to its roots.

Android Wear is based on the idea of cards with all of your data and notification content on them. However, it's still Android and that means developers can play around with that model. Circa is an attempt to make notifications more attractive with a cool animation and configurable colors.
