In a New York Times interview, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau (who's also the new head of mobile development) said that the company is working on a version of the extremely popular FPS for smartphones and/or tablets.

Download: Latest Google Play Store 4.4.21 With Slide-Out Navigation

Last week, we published the first look at Play Store 4.4, which most notably replaced the menu-accessible navigation buttons with a new slide-out UI. An APK teardown of this update also yielded the news of Google Play Newsstand and a special message to the AP teardown team that we humbly enjoyed quite a bit. Today, this update is live.

Unfortunately, the rumor of a more drastic card-heavy UI update hasn't panned out just yet, but we'll continue looking out for it in future Play Store updates.

After a number of delays and an untold number of fake spam apps, BBM for Android is about to really arrive in Google Play.

You'll be able to download the app today, but you might not be able to actually use it.

[New App] Switchr Migrates From XDA To Google Play, Brings Super-Fast App Switching To Your Device

A lot of Android devices have dedicated buttons to bring up the multitasking list, but Switchr may offer an even faster way to jump between running apps. This utility debuted on XDA recently as a beta, but now it has come to Google Play in both free and paid forms.

Switchr, like some similar apps, creates an active swipe zone on the edge of the screen. Swipe in through that area, and you trigger the app switching interface. There are two modes in Switchr – Flow and Slide. Flow pulls up an animated scrolling list of apps as you drag your finger in.

[New Game] Namco Takes Air Combat Intergalactic With Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy

Namco-Bandai released Sky Gamblers: Rise Of Glory more than a year ago, and the WWI 3D air combat game was well-received. The sequel takes the setting to the near future with a mix of modern fighter jets and alien invaders. Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy is definitely one of the most graphically-intensive entries in the admittedly small niche, and the loose arcade style is well-suited to touch controls.

The game isn't quite as sci-fi as the trailer on the Play Store suggests: when Air Supremacy launched on iOS 18 months ago (sigh), its primary campaign had you facing off against conventional air and ground targets.
