Adobe AIR for Android can now run natively on Intel x86-based mobile devices, enabling people who own such a device to better run games and web apps that require the AIR runtime.

Samsung's SideSync Desktop Program Works With All Computers (Not Just Samsung Models) After 3.0 Update

For better or worse, manufacturer apps tend to be exclusive to their own phones or tablets in the Android world. Not so with Windows programs, or at least, not usually. Samsung's SideSync program, an automated backup, remote desktop, and file transfer system, was previously limited to Samsung's own ATIV line of Windows laptops and tablets. But with the update to version 3.0, the company has removed that restriction - you should now be able to use SideSync with a Samsung Android device and any Windows machine.

[New Game] Smash Bandits Racing Crashes Through The Play Store With The Heat Hot On Its Tail

For a game with the word "racing" in the title, there's very little of it to be found in Smash Bandits Racing. This title is all about outrunning the cops and destroying as much roadside property in the process as possible. The more you smash, the more you earn. The more you earn, the better your car. That's pretty much all there is to the premise, and that's okay. This visually pleasing top-down racer doesn't need much else.
