How To Sink Battleships In Luftrausers (And Other Helpful Tips) On SHIELD Android TV [Sponsored Post]

By Henry Gilbert

Luftrausers is one of the most intense games to launch with the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, and it doesn't let up from the first moment. You launch your small aircraft into those dangerous skies and start your all-out attack within moments, no tutorial required. And while it all looks great on your HDTV, maybe you could use just a little guidance with some of the more opaque aspects of the unexpectedly dense gem. Here are a few good rules of thumb for new pilots:

Turn down the throttle occasionally - Yes, obviously you want to keep your ship above water to avoid certain death, but that doesn't mean it's always full speed ahead.

Simple Bank Updates Android App To Version 2.2 With A Few Material Touches And Other New Features

Simple is a bank from the future (or the past, I guess), one that lacks physical branches and expects you to handle all of your transactions over the web from a PC or mobile device. After quite a wait, the Portland-based company has pushed out an update to its Android app that comes with enough visual tweaks to make the experience look Lollipop-friendly.

The previous version—which was already clean and, dare I say, simple—looked like a KitKat holdover. With 2.2, the designers have slid the hamburger button from the edge of the screen and tossed a floating action button into the bottom right corner.

BlackBerry Users In The USA To Get Amazon Appstore Access Via 10.3.2 Update Rolling Out Now

BlackBerry has slowly but surely realized that their best bet for continued existence is to somehow bridge the app compatibility gap that Android and iOS boast in comparison to their platform.

For American users, that starts today, as a new OS update will bring the Amazon Appstore along with it.

The update, to version 10.3.2, is on its way to BlackBerry Classic users on Verizon and T-Mobile as well as the Z10 and Q10 on AT&T.

When A Bad Guy Comes Along, You Must Whip It In Pixelated Casual Game FireWhip

I dare you to try and get through this story without getting Devo lyrics stuck in your head. Ready? Here we go: FireWhip is a casual game from developer Trichotomy that's unlike just about anything on the Play Store, despite its simplicity. You play a tiny pixelated blob which, for reasons that aren't adequately explained, has a whip made of fire. The objective is to kill as many bad guys (also represented by pixelated blobs) as possible, in a sort of 360-degree version of a top-down shooter.

The unique part of FireWhip is the control scheme. To activate your whip you simply swipe in a circle, the faster the spin, the longer and more powerful the whip.

Amazon Releases Cloud Drive SDKs For Android And iOS So Developers Can Integrate Their Apps

Amazon Cloud Drive is like other cloud storage options, only it provides unlimited storage space. That's nothing to sniff at, but it's still not all that big a deal if your favorite apps can't smoothly tap into the service.
