The previous apps from Vision Objects have been a little magical – they had better handwriting recognition than a lot of expensive desktop software suites. MyScript Stylus brings that handwriting recognition to all apps by replacing the keyboard on your phone or tablet.

MyScript Stylus gives you a small writing space where the keyboard usually is. Whatever you scribble in there will be turned into text and dropped into any field on the device in real time.

You know that moment you have when you're playing an endless runner and you're ten seconds from beating your record, then you smash into an easily-avoided obstacle by the width of about two pixels? The colorful Time Surfer has found a way around that: you can rewind time to cover up your mistakes. The Prince of Persia's ears must be turning red right about now.

Time Surfer got its start on the Humble Mobile Bundle, but now it's available from the Play Store for a reasonable $.99.

headsup

If you've ever watched Ellen DeGeneres' show Ellen, then you may already be familiar with Heads Up!, a quirky and seemingly fun guessing game of sorts. If you haven't heard of it, this video tell you everything you need to know:

Zoolander! Oh, um, Starskey and Hutch! ... The Royal Tenenbaums! Oh! Night at the Museum!

Got the idea? Look like something you'd want to play? Good news! Now you can.

The world of Shadowrun was created 25 years ago as a tabletop RPG setting, and it certainly had its fans. When Jordan Weisman, one of the original creators of Shadowrun wanted to make it into a proper video game, the internet was more than happy to get involved. The Kickstarter campaign pulled in $1.8 million and now the end result is finally available on an Android tablet near you.

Shadowrun Returns is a traditional turn-based RPG with touch-optimized controls.

Fans of JRPGs, Square Enix, Final Fantasy, or just those adorable Moogles, you might want to take a moment to look into the Play Store. Go ahead, I'll wait. Did you see it? That's right, Final Fantasy V is here, marking the fifth entry from Square Enix's long running franchise to make it over to Android.

As you've probably noticed by now, this title's graphics more closely resemble the touched-up 2D visuals of the 1st and 2nd Final Fantasy titles than the 3D polygons found in the previous two releases.

We've got one last Google update to discuss this evening – YouTube. Bumping up to version 5.1.1, YouTube didn't get an official change log, but there are a few things worth discussing briefly (before Artem does his teardown magic, anyway).

First up, YouTube has a new permission for receiving data from the internet, which it uses to give you new video notifications.

Somewhere amid the rest of Google's app updates today, Google updated its Search app. While the Play Store still shows an old change log, there are at least a couple of notable changes with the new update.

First among them, as part of Google's ongoing quest for better language processing, is the ability to have language packs automatically update themselves. This is something we uncovered in our last APK Teardown, though some of the more exciting features we saw evidence of (custom hotwords) haven't quite hit prime time yet.

Yesterday, TuneIn Radio Pro, one of my favorite radio apps, was updated to version 9.0 and brought a bunch of sports-related improvements. However, a pretty significant bug made its way into the app as well - pausing and rewinding live streams, which are two of the most important features of Pro, no longer worked.

Reviewers started making a stink, a bunch of users on Reddit got sad, and TuneIn soon realized what they'd done.

MotoHeroz

MotoHeroz first launched as a WiiWare title back in 2011, and it would remain one of the best releases available for the platform. The game is ultimately the product of a side scrolling platformer that bred with a racing game, and the result is a challenging title that combines the look of the former with the physics of the latter. In the end, MotoHeroz is a ride worth taking, and now you can find the keys sitting in the Play Store.

Shopping-Thumb

An Android app for Google Shopping Express has landed in the Play Store, and while it's available for anyone to download, it still only works in the San Francisco Bay area. I know, that blows, but if you live in the region and take part in Google's trial same-day shopping program, this new app gives you a quicker means to make purchases when your computer isn't within reach. Google has also extended access out to San Jose, so if you're a newly eligible resident who hasn't already signed up for the service, now may be a good time to do so.
