Hardware enthusiasts are probably already aware of Futuremark and its PCMark software, a standard for testing and comparing computer hardware for years. PCMark is popular among reviewers and users for its comparison of hardware on standards that are more likely to reflect real-world, typical usage. Today Futuremark announced that it's bringing the software to the "Big three" mobile operating systems, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Futuremark's press release did not include a date.
CloudAround isn't the music player you grew up with. Sure, it can play the files saved locally, but that's not its purpose. This is a music player for people who are tired of shifting files back and forth between every new device. They've made the effort of saving their music to their computer and, wisely, backing it up. Now they're putting their foot down - they just don't want to have to move their music over yet again to enjoy the native music app that came with their shiny new phone.
For those who don't know the pure magic of Boomerang for Gmail, click here. The service has been around for Chrome and Firefox for quite a while now, and it's great. Basically, Boomerang allows users to schedule messages to send at a predetermined date and time, or "boomerang" them back into their inbox if there's no reply or if a message requires follow-up.
Today, Boomerang for Gmail is unleashing Boomerang for Android – a full Gmail client that packs in all the features you love about Boomerang.
It's important to be able to admit when you're wrong. Imgur, everyone's favorite image hosting site and backbone of Reddit, took its mobile app out of beta on Monday. The developers removed the ads late yesterday after getting a piece of everyone's mind.
So, now the app is back to it's ad-free state, but that isn't the entirety of the update. The widget has been revamped and a few crashes sorted out.
The first rule of Fight Club, is you don't... Wait, that was Project Mayhem? Oh, and this one is Project Anarchy. So many great movie jokes ruined because somebody gave this thing the wrong name. Alright, let's just be serious for a minute.
If you're a gamer, you've probably heard of a little company called Havok. You may have even heard of a few games using its Physics engine like Battlefield 3, BioShock (1 & 2), Assassin's Creed (all of 'em), Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and a few hundred more.
Gameloft's shooter magnum opus is getting a big update today. If you've purchased Modern Combat 4, head to the Play Store to start the download for the Meltdown update - it's free. Those who haven't bought MC4 can get it with a new purchase. The update is fairly typical for a high-profile first-person shooter: new maps, new weapons, and a new specialization class. But what will probably excite fans of the game most are two new multiplayer modes.
Humble Bundle With Android 6 was already a good deal before, as it offered seven games, five of which were debuting on Android for the first time. Now, three additional titles are joining the ranks. Those who have already bought the bundle will see McPixel, Waking Mars, and NightSky appear in their Humble Bundle libraries automatically. Those who haven't yet bought the bundle just have to pay over the average price paid thus far, which has yet to exceed $5.
We've covered GoBank (and its competitor, Simple) rather extensively here at AP, but up until now, the service was invite-only. You may have seen GoBank's #gimmegobank campaign across Twitter for those who were seeking an invite, but as of today, the online-centric bank exits its beta program and is available for everyone.
During my time testing out the service, I was extremely impressed with how feature-rich and well thought-out the app was, as it allows essentially every aspect of the service to be tweaked and/or modified without ever touching a computer.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.
