Beloved Star Wars Action-RPG Knights Of The Old Republic Appears In The Play Store For $5

What's this? A licensed Star Wars game on Android that people actually want? Believe it or not, the fan-favorite Knights of the Old Republic just crash-landed into the Play Store out of nowhere. You can grab it for your Android 4.1+ device for five bucks right now. That's a 50% discounted price, at least according to the app description. Compatibility seems a little spotty, too: it's downloadable with most of my Nexus and SHIELD devices, but not my G Pad 8.3 GPE tablet.

Security Hole In Skype Allows Users To Surreptitiously Connect To Other Users

Reddit user Ponkers posted an interesting find to /r/Android today, pointing out a significant privacy hole in Skype that essentially allows users to force an Android device to answer a call, making eavesdropping nearly effortless.

Ponkers drew a diagram below, which I feel compelled to include based on its artistic merits, but here's the gist of how the process works.

Assume you have three devices, device 1, device 2, and device 3.

In SNK's Free-To-Play Beast Busters, the King Of Fighters Gang Moonlight As Lightgun Zombie Hunters

Zombie games are not novel. In fact at this point, they're about as far from "novel" as you can get before slipping right off the treacherous slopes of ironic reference. But SNK's latest mobile game Best Busters actually manages to infuse some new ideas into the zombie shooter genre, and pull it off with the developer's signature anime style. Now if only they could do so without falling into the trappings of free-to-play mobile games...

Nike's Golf 360 App Comes To Android After Taking Its Sweet Time On iOS

Look, we realize that some companies don't have the resources to develop apps for multiple platforms, and in some cases (some very limited cases) it makes sense to publish on the mobile OS that has 12% of the market. But Nike isn't one of those companies. And so it still kind of miffs us when they take two years to bring a sports app like Golf 360 to the Play Store.

Google Play Games Introduces New Publishing API And Leaderboard Tamper Protection, Improves Unity Plugin And C++ SDK

Game developers integrating with Google Play Games have seen a lot of improvements since the service was launched a year and a half ago at Google I/O 2013. There have been a lot of refinements to the experience for both players and developers, and new tools have made many of the tedious and time consuming chores much easier. Google has just launched a new Play Games Publishing API inspired by a similar interface that was added to the Play Store earlier this year.

PayPal 5.10.1 Update Adds Stored Gift Cards, Arabic And Hebrew Language Support

Some people download a million apps to their Android phone, one for each and every activity. Coincidentally, these are also the people who ask their brother why their phone, which was lightning fast when they got it, is suddenly struggling to open the homescreen under the load of three different QR code readers. (Not that I'm pointing fingers. Bekie.) For those who prefer to keep fewer apps installed, the latest PayPal update adds the ability to scan and retrieve gift cards.

The Latest Evernote Update Brings Relevant Content Suggestions To Your Work With 'Context'

I've been an Evernote user for a long time now. I've watched it grow from a simple way to take and organize notes to a powerful work tool. I've written many reviews in Evernote (for easy cross-device sync), and I don't see that changing any time soon.
