HTC Uploads The One A9's Camera App To Google Play

The HTC One A9 comes with a 13MP camera that, like those found on the backs of other smartphones, is capable of shooting photos. To do so, tap the camera icon that's initially located on the right side of your dock. That little rectangle with a circle in it will fire up an app with the expected capture button, shooting modes, and settings. Said app is also available in the Play Store.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Is An Absurd Physics Game Starring A Perfectly Ordinary Human

You wear a disguise, to look like human guys, but you're not a man, you're a Chicken Boo. The classic Animaniacs sketch, wherein a six-foot chicken passes himself off as human in various Chaplin-style short farces, might very well be one of the inspirations for indie gaming hit Octodad: Dadliest Catch. In this casual physics game you play an eight-legged cephalopod trying to live the American dream, passing himself off as an average Joe as he gets married, enters the workforce, and raises a family.

Android Wear v1.4 Makes Some Minor Changes To The Settings Screen, Prepares For New Wear OS Update [APK Teardown + Download]

Version 1.4 of the Android Wear app started rolling out late Friday. The theme of this update, at least for what's currently live, is a set of changes to the Settings screen. There are a couple of new options, but they come at the expense of the battery stats screen. A look under the hood also shows that a few other features are either live or in the works for the next Wear OS update.

Samsung Publishes 'Family Square' Photo Bulletin Board App For The Galaxy View

The Galaxy View is Samsung's biggest tablet, and the company is positioning it as a sort of all-purpose, general-use device for an entire household rather than a conventional mobile device. To that end they've released another exclusive app for the 18.4-inch tablet, Family Square. According to the description in the Play Store, it's meant to be a digital bulletin board, allowing multiple users to post photos to the app which are then displayed on the screen.

The setup is... unique. Instead of simply pulling photos from Facebook or Google+ accounts, Family Square needs to connect to individual phones, presumably over the local Wi-Fi network.

Fly Labs, "Creators Of The World's Best Video Editing Apps," Get Acquired By Google And Join The Photos Team

As an Android user, you are forgiven for not knowing who or what Fly Labs is. The company's video editing suite of applications is only available on iOS so your exposure to its products may have been non-existent. But you're about to hear more about Fly Labs or at least its products' features since it has just been acquired by Google.

The company announced the acquisition on its site and Google Photos' product lead David Lieb reiterated the news, dubbing Fly Labs as the "creators of the world's best video editing apps."  I don't know about the world's best, but Fly Labs has some very interesting products under its name. Clips puts fragments of videos together, reorders them, and tags music or voice recordings on top of them. Tempo edits slow-motion, fast-forwarded clips, and time-lapse videos. Fly uses gestures to edit videos, apply cuts and transitions, integrate picture-in-picture, or split the screen.

Today Calendar Adds Natural Language Processing When Scheduling Appointments

Calendar apps are a dime a dozen on the Play Store, but few of them have the polish, power, and intuitive interface of Today Calendar. Now the app can add one more bullet point to its list of handy options that make it easier and faster to schedule appointments and tasks: natural language processing.

What that means is that you no longer have to fuss with manually picking dates, times, and durations. You simply type them as you're making a new entry and Today will interpret the specific details and schedule accordingly. Words like todaytomorrowFriday, in 3 daysspecific dates, holiday names, and times like 2pmfor 3 hours, from 1pm until 5pm, are processed by the app without the need to go into date and time selection.

The app appears to pretty much be strictly for viewing performance in a dashboard card-style layout, not actually taking any actions in DoubleClick itself. You'll be able to see your network performance, including things like impressions, clicks, your click ratios, CPM, and individual ad performance.

You can get it on Google Play at the link below.

Germany And France Join Short List Of Countries With Google Play TV Shows, Germany And Spain Get Play Promo Codes

Until today, just five countries had access to Google Play TV shows: Australia, Canada, the US, UK, and Japan. Now, Germany and France have joined the rather [frustratingly] exclusive Play TV club, and that's not all. Germany and Spain are also getting access to redeemable Google Play credit promo codes starting today, both having already been in the list of countries with Google Play gift cards.

While Play Movies is available in dozens of countries, licensing television shows can be much more difficult. With many different distribution deals often occurring even within different regions of a given country, let alone for different seasons of a show, the number of deals that have to be made can be quite ridiculous.

Crossy Road Developers Release 'Shooty Skies,' A Casual Free-To-Play Take On Shoot-Em-Ups

Crossy Road is often presented as a prime example of what's wrong with casual games, because it's a free-to-play game that's based on a classic (Frogger) and lacks any kind of sophistication. But Crossy Road does a lot of things right, too: it has an interesting if not unique visual style, it's accessible to any kind of gamer, and best of all, its free-to-play model is entirely reasonable, asking for only one dollar at a time and never forcing players to buy currency or tokens for random rewards. It's a good little game, is what I'm saying here.

Two of the three-man team from Crossy Road have released a new game in the same casual vein, Shooty Skies.
