[New Game] Crescent Moon's Nakama Offers Frantic Fisticuffs, A Pixelated Presentation, And MOGA Controller Support

Crescent Moon has been one of the more reliable developers on the Play Store as of late, and their newest game is definitely worth a look from anyone who enjoys a good old-fashioned beat-em-up. Nakama evokes the spirit of 2D side-scrolling fighters like Streets Of Rage or Double Dragon. At least, it's like Double Dragon might have been if you played it at 200 frames per second.

You play as an inexplicably blocky ninja on a quest to save his friends.

SwiftKey Revives Left-Handed Number Pad Option, Addresses Several Other Bugs With Update To Version 4.3.1

SwiftKey introduced several new keyboard layout options earlier this month, including the ability to split keyboards and move them around, empowering users to position the keyboard precisely where its most accessible. Unfortunately, some features were lost in transition. Today's update does its part to address these drawbacks. Now left-handed users, or people who just prefer having the option, can again move the number pad to the left side of the keyboard.

Facebook 4.0 Test Build Reveals Drastically Revamped Design [APK Download]

We've received an early look at an upcoming version of Facebook that introduces a brand new, flat UI. This is a change that competing social networks like Twitter and Pinterest made a long time ago, and given the direction Android, iOS, and Windows Phone have all moved in, it only makes sense.

Yet this is pre-release software, so there's a decent chance none of these changes will make it into the stable version.
