Technology is rad, isn't it? I mean, here we are with smartwatches on our wrists with pretty respectable LCD and AMOLED screens. We were using phones a few years ago that didn't have many more pixels than our watches have. Might as well put those pixels to use showing something pretty, like images from 500px. You can do that with Mural Watchface.

The Android Wear companion app on Android has been a bit of an eyesore since the platform launched last summer. It looked like something born of a torrid love affair between Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich and was lacking in options. A new leak from Phandroid shows off the updated Wear app with a new design and features, and it looks much improved.

HTC's camera has become the company's latest piece of stock software to enter the Play Store. Here the app will sit on virtual shelves until the time comes for the company to push out future updates to its existing devices in a way that will no longer require a full-on firmware update.

HTC Camera provides a compelling software experience with many options tucked away underneath the surface, but it's held back on flagships by rear-facing hardware with relatively low megapixel counts.

Assassin's Creed Unity is the first entry in the series that won't be available for last-gen consoles, having been developed to take advantage of the extra power introduced by the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. This time the franchise heads to Paris and takes place during the French Revolution. While the core gameplay should look familiar to fans, the latest release introduces cooperative multiplayer that should extend the longevity of the experience.

If you want to take square snapshots and apply (sometimes) garish filters to them, there is only one choice—Instagram. The Intsagram app for Android is getting an update today to v6.10 with a few smallish feature additions. Well, heavy users of Instagram will think they're pretty great.

The Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth-enabled door lock lets owners unlock a door just by tapping a finger against it, as long as their phones are in range. It's a cool piece of tech, something we reported on over a year ago when it first hit the market. Android compatibility was in the works, but a few roadblocks popped up along the way.

The primary issue centered around Android's lack of proper support for Bluetooth Smart.

Groupon is a good resource to turn to for people who love to buy or experience new things but hate paying full price. The service offers discounts on everything ranging from refurbished electronics to entrees for two at the local bar. It also does vacations, and now Groupon has released a separate Android app that's dedicated entirely to getting away.

Google still hasn't added official support for third-party Android Wear watch faces, but the recent update to 4.4W.2 that added the ability to hide peek cards is good enough for me. You can finally see your whole watch face, and with Wear FaceLift, you'll see more of them. This app lets you rotate your watch faces at set intervals throughout the day.

Before the release of Android 4.4, stock Android came with a basic SMS app. It served as a simple way to exchange text messages the old-school way, without dealing with data connections or usernames. Then the functionality got merged into Hangouts, and while a new standard Messenger app is returning for 5.0, there are many people with devices that won't see that update for months—if ever.

That leaves plenty of room for a basic texting app, one without a fancy name or a distracting icon, and one that doesn't look out of place compared to Google's first-party offerings.
