While I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer, I do tend to get quickly addicted to casual math games. Give me a set of numbers, some form of logic problem to solve in a few seconds or more, and I can start round after round, often resulting in hours of continuous play. I have tried dozens of math games for Android and kept finding myself drawn toward the most minimalistic ones.
Say, do you like racing? Do you like spaceships? Do you like... dubstep? Then how about a game where spaceships race with a dubstep soundtrack, and also shoot at each other? If that sounds good, Flashout 2 is waiting for your money.
Streambels really doesn't care which way you want to get media off your Android device and onto something with speakers or a screen that will better do it justice. Before now it has handled DLNA and AirPlay just fine. After the latest update, the little piece of software knows what to do with Chromecast as well.
Streambels already competed, in part, with the likes of BubbleUPnP. Now it competes with AllCast and other Chromecast-centric apps as well.
Are you ready to fight for the Imperium? Well, now you can with the new Warhammer 40k: Storm of Vengeance on Android. This game has all the pieces of Warhammer – space marines, big explosions, and so on. Though, the gameplay isn't what fans were expecting. This is a "lane-based strategy" game.
Amazon has stayed true to its promise to offer a "premium" app of the day for free every day since the launch of its Appstore. On occasion, it has even offered multiple apps, best-of apps, or apps that are tangentially related in one way or another. Today, Amazon is offering a pretty cool bundle that revolves around music – music creation, discovery, listening, etc. There are some well-known titles in this bundle, too, like Shazam Encore and TuneIn Radio Pro, just to name a couple.
One of the biggest uses for YouTube is listening to music, and it's getting a bit more convenient to do that on Android today. YouTube Mix came to the desktop last year, but someone just threw the switch to enable it on Android. Simply search for an artists and rock out.
YouTube Mix is essentially an auto-generated playlist of an artist's most popular videos on YouTube. It seems to be mostly pulling up Vevo content for established acts, but the videos can be pulled from any account.
The Android Device Manager might get the basics taken care of, but Cerberus goes a few steps farther. It's a powerful security suite with features like SIM locking, device alarms, remote lock, remote wipe, remote picture taking, and location tracking. It would usually cost you €2.99 (about $4) for a lifetime license, but it's free for the next day in celebration of the app's third birthday.
Cerberus has robust functionality on standard devices, but it can also take advantage of root access to move to the system partition so it persists between device resets.
Duolingo is one of the most simplistic, visually appealing language learning experience someone can come across, and the fact that it's a mobile app they can take anywhere is just one heck of a perk. Today's update doesn't shake things up for existing users, but it has what it takes to bring in many more. Now English courses are available for people who speak Hindi as their native language, Russian speakers have the option to learn German, and German speakers are welcome to learn French.
With all of the video streaming options out there these days, it wouldn't surprise us in the slightest if Redbox isn't the first app that comes to mind when the movie-watching mood strikes. But a new app update has rolled out that freshens things up a bit for anyone who just really likes the feel of a physical disc. Now there's a wish list in the sidebar for the media that is best saved for later.
