As the work week draws to a close, you're probably making plans for the weekend – friends, family, and all that. Cancel them. We've got a raft of sales that'll keep you busy for the next few days. The inviting glow of a touchscreen is all you really need to feel whole anyway.

The increasingly misnamed Final Fantasy series of role-playing games has been around for just shy of 26 years. In that time it's spanned the gaming spectrum from undeniable classic (FFIII and FFVII) to forgettable mess (pretty much everything since X-2), but it remains the unstoppable juggernaut of the Japanese RPG scene. Now Square Enix (that's Squaresoft for those of you who remember the days before the Xbox 360) is hoping to cash in on your nostalgia with Final Fantasy All The Bravest, a simplified RPG that combines the "endless" style of play with the company's rich intellectual property.

Earlier today, Google started slowly rolling out an update to Maps with version 7.2. This is a point release, up from 7.1, so I expected more than just minor changes. While not as big as the quiet Drive update yesterday, Maps 7.2 brings a few notable changes to the table that Google has not yet (or won't ever) itemized in the changelog. Upon getting my hands on the APK, which you can find at the bottom of this post, I hopped onto the teardown couch and dug in.

Of course, along with a new shortlist of apps, we've got a condensed list of last month's very best new games. And as usual, there were plenty to choose from. Out of the dizzying array of new games, we've selected only the very best in the list below. We'll take a brief look at the five best, and then a list of runners up that, while worth looking at, didn't quite make it onto our main list.

If you're in Twitter's Android beta program, better grab the nearest Android device and check for updates. The official Twitter client has been updated with a completely new interface, and it's not the one leaked at the Samsung IFA event. This version has Android-style tabs, in-line media previews, hamburger navigation, and a proper action bar.

Another month, another incredible showing of new apps in the Play Store. It's taken us a while to narrow down the selections this time, but we promise they're worth the wait. Out of all the new apps we saw last month, we've compiled a short list of just five of our favorites, plus some runners up that didn't quite make the cut but are still worth checking out.

Without further ado, let's get started.

AutoLaunch-Thumb

The developer behind some of the best extensions to the popular Tasker automation app has released another plugin into the Play Store, one that expands on how users can launch and access apps. AutoLaunch offers two primary functions: the ability to dynamically launch apps and the option to pull up app queries. You can head over to the plugin's website for instructions on how to get set up, but first, see the new functionality in action in the video below.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a 2D fantasy real-time strategy game, a 3D puzzler with some Gumby character, a roguelike RPG, and yet another game featuring more cats than the yard of that weird lady down the street.

That beloved sandbox indie hit Terraria has reached Android, and it won't cost you a cent to try it out. Terraria is a game in the same vein as Minecraft – you dig, explore, fight, and build. Each world in Terraria is unique, and now you can build one on most any Android device.
