Pimp Your Screen is an iOS port that has received a complete makeover for its Android debut. While the original gives our Apple peers customizable app shelves and themed locked screens, our version comes decked out with a trunkful of decent wallpapers and nifty widgets. There's little here that we Android enthusiasts couldn't find elsewhere, but this is a nice tool to hand to a new or casual user who wants to pimp their ride without having to give it too much effort.
If you want to listen to an audiobook, Audible is the number one source. Though, the app was never great on Android. It wasn't terrible, but it didn't have a strong Android aesthetic and the layout was strange. With the version 1.5 update, that's a thing of the past. The app looks excellent now, and there are other improvements too.
We've all been there – your parent, friend, or significant other is having a phone issue, but you're not nearby. The process of talking someone through troubleshooting via IM or voice is frustrating at best. Well, at long last TeamViewer QuickSupport has come to all Android devices. It was previously only available on select Samsung phones. With this app installed, you can access a phone or tablet remotely from a desktop computer running Windows, Linux, or OS X.
Last week, Vine introduced its "biggest" update yet … for iOS. The update brought along a handful of improvements in Vine's ongoing effort to improve the product and galvanize it against Instagram's new video functionality.
Today, Vine brought the update to Android. Along with a new version number (1.3.1), users will gain access to new video channels, with the ability to browse or upload to specific content-related channels. The updated Vine debuted with fifteen channels including categories like comedy, music, and nature.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

Pacific Rim comes to theaters tomorrow, and I'm already planning my route. Giant robots, Godzilla-style monsters, and a complete absence of Shia LaBeouf - what more could you want from a summer blockbuster? How about an official Android game... or two? The "full" Pacific Rim game comes from Reliance Games, a developer that tends to specialize in licensed titles. It's not to be confused with the other official game, which is more of an AR gimmick.
Birds crap on things. It's an unavoidable fact of life. A driver who hasn't walked out to a vehicle coated in bird feces is a driver who hasn't had their license for very long. But those birds can't be allowed to get the only enjoyment out of this experience. 2K Games' Turd Birds gives us a chance to experience what it's like to be on the feathered end of a frosty white bombing run.
If there's one belief I have when it comes to mobile devices, it's that you can never have too many weather applications. I'm not sure where that obsession comes from, but I periodically have to remind myself to clear out the ones I no longer look at.
Given my love for good weather apps, I can't help but grab all the latest ones as soon as they hit the Play Store (if they look good, of course), and when I hear the name Wunderground, I immediately know it's going to be one worth keeping.
