Back in 2011 when Amazon released its App Store, we cited the ability to try apps out in your browser before downloading as one of its top features. Later, you could also do that on phones and tablets. Well, things have changed. First, after an announcement made today, you will no longer be able to do this with apps from Amazon's store. Second, you probably won't miss it too much.
The venerable hack-and-slash is a game genre that transfers well to mobile devices, and there are plenty of examples on Android. However, many of them are loaded down with in-app purchases. I'm looking at you, Dungeon Hunter 5. Implosion, from the developer of the popular music rhythm game Cytus, is a cool-looking hack-and-slash that only charges you once. It's expensive, but you can try before you buy.
Implosion is set in a post-apocalyptic future as a mysterious enemy called XADA has launched an attack on humanity, hoping to drive us to extinction.
It's that time again when Chrome's beta channel updates to give those of us who can't wait for the fun stuff a chance to test things out in a pretty stable environment. The latest iteration, v43, isn't exactly groundbreaking but ships several meaningful changes.
The addition of an API for MIDI devices, like keyboards, probably doesn't affect too many people. Those who will benefit, though, will do so quite a bit.
I understand if you don't remember anything about app indexing. It's not a particularly sexy topic. Here's all you need to know for this post—developers who implement app indexing can have their apps show up when users perform relevant Google searches. Say, you're looking for a recipe, and you have an app installed that contains that recipe. Google will point you in that direction.
Before, this only worked with apps that you already had on your device.
I just love creepy stuff. Creepy movies, creepy music, creepy old buildings, creepy dolls and other little toys. Even creepypasta. But most of all, I love creepy games. That thrill of being part of the action...there's nothing quite like it (I mean, except actually being in a situation like that...which I probably don't actually want).
Today, Amazon turned its creepy dial up to 11 with the release of a new game called Lost Within from Amazon Game Studios.
Any.do is a to-do list manager, so it makes sense that version 3.0 places an emphasis on managing to-dos. The team has added a grid view that gives you a broader look at all of your lists at once. Picture one for shopping, another for work, and a third for household chores. When you're ready for specifics, you can tap to zoom in and see the items or tasks under each one.
Amazon just loves to give away free stuff. I mean seriously, they have free movies, free music, free books, free digital storage, free shipping, and a free cardboard box with every order. Granted, most of those goodies require a Prime membership, but hey, the boxes are really free!
Well, Amazon is up to their normal charitable shenanigans once again today, this time offering up a bundle of paid apps and games on their Appstore for the low price of free (no Prime membership required).
Have you been eagerly waiting to try the Meerkat live video streaming service, which launched as an iOS exclusive? Well you're probably going to have to wait a little longer. Meerkat is now available on Android, but only as a beta. And not a "come on in, the water's fine" Play Store beta, it's an invite-only beta being run from a Google Docs page. Invitations don't seem to be going out widely yet.
Forza Soccer is one of the top apps in the Play Store for keeping track of what you guys in the rest of the world call football. How do we know it's good? Because you told us in the comments when we recommended 20 other soccer apps to check out.
Now the app, which follows live scores and provides video highlights, has received its big material design update. This way keeping up with your sports fandom doesn't require stepping back in time.
