Google's MyGlass App Jumps To Version 3.0 With Slick New Interface, Bug Fixes

As promised, the companion app to Google Glass, MyGlass, got a big update today. The bump from version 2.2 to 3.0 allows for sharing from Maps directly to Glass, but is otherwise purely aesthetic. Users will enjoy a slick new interface centered around a slide-out menu, which breaks out the Glassware Gallery, your active glassware, device info, and selected contacts into separate views.

This arrangement is infinitely more friendly than the previous interface, and glassware is now displayed more richly, with example screenshots in each listing along with a brief description and rundown of permissions.

Kongregate has brought Tiny Dice Dungeon to Android, supplying us mobile gamers with another RPG filled with quests, battles, and loot. This particular game is set apart by its innovative turn-based combat system, which requires players to roll die to attack. The numbers rolled determine how much damage gets dealt. Rolling a double causes increased damage, while getting a one means the attack misses. The system works by combining strategy with good old-fashioned luck.

Mizuu Developer Open Sources App Following Google Takedown, Will Create New Version For Google Play

It was a rough day yesterday for fans of the video indexing app Mizuu. The app was pulled from Google Play after it was found to be in violation of Google's adult content guidelines.

Yahoo Buys Its Own Snapchat By Acquiring Blink, Starts With Shuttering Its Apps

Now you see it, now you don't. Just like that, Blink is disappearing in the blink of an eye. Okay, not quite. Current users will gradually see the service shut down on both Android and iOS over the next few weeks, following the app's acquisition by Yahoo.

Blink5

Blink was a product of Meh Labs (no, not Meth Labs), a company built by two ex-Google employees Kevin Stephens and Michelle Norgan. The app functioned similarly to Snapchat, at least in premise, by allowing users to send messages that automatically disappear.

Flappy Bird clones are lame – we all know this. However, when a game is truly aware of how ridiculous cloning Flappy Bird is, the results can be pretty amusing. In FlapThulhu, you control the Ancient Ones, who are for some reason flying through a maze instead of demanding blood sacrifices.

Video ID/Management App Mizuu Removed From Play Store By Google For Alleged Content Policy Violations

You can probably figure out almost all the salient details of this story without reading it – we've seen almost the exact same thing happen to other developers. I'll just give you a moment to outline the situation in your head, then we'll see how close you got. Ready? Okay. The developer of the super-neat video indexing app Mizuu was notified earlier today that Google has pulled the app for violating Google's policy on sexually explicit material.

Minuum Now Works With Google Glass For People Who Aren't Afraid To Look Like Morons In Public

Minuum shrinks all the letters of a keyboard down into a single row of text. This is potentially convenient for smartphones, but the learning curve alone is enough to push some users back to alternative options. Yet for smaller devices where a full-size keyboard is downright unwieldy, Minuum is uniquely situated to step in and scratch that itch. The app has now come to Google Glass, but unfortunately, this looks like one of those itches you don't want to scratch in public.
