How about a little boost on this Monday morning? Picking up some new apps and games at drastically reduced prices might provide just the kick you need to attack the day like an unstoppable nuclear-powered robot tiger that shoots lightning from its eyes. Or something less outlandish... but these apps are still on sale either way.
Looking for some new apps but don't have time to go through our longer roundups from the past month? No worries, we're back with a whole month's worth of apps boiled down into five picks guaranteed to improve your catalog. Not all the great apps of the month could fit on our list, so we'll follow up with some honorable mentions. Without further ado, let's get started.
DialApp is a dialer replacement that retains some semblance of its stock counterpart, while seeking to drastically improve performance by guessing who you want to call, and making your call log infinitely smarter.
Robot Unicorn Attack's original web iteration was a moderately funny joke that morphed into an amazingly addictive game, and then morphed into a similarly insanity-fueling mobile game.
Building on the success of the original, Adult Swim Games has made Robot Unicorn Attack 2, which just recently made its Android debut and, happily, seems much more stable and playable than the buggy original.
Rather than trying to explain the sheer madness of RUA 2, we'll defer to Adult Swim's promotional trailer.
Carbon, one of the most hotly anticipated Twitter clients to ever come to Android, got an update today to version 1.2, bringing with it a ton of useful enhancements.
First among these is the ability to browse from links or watch YouTube videos in the app, saving time that would otherwise be spent leaving the app to see content somewhere else.
The update also adds Vine preview/playback, people search, a new image viewer, the ability to save images, optional style tweaks (like changing tweet font size), and the ability to change notification frequency, among other things.
It is once again time to discuss our favorite games from the past month. As usual, plenty of great games popped up in the Play Store last month, but we'll just be taking a look at five, with a list of honorable mentions to follow.
From action to explosive cartoon cats, there's something in the list that should satisfy just about every type of gamer. If you're looking for some new games to keep you busy this weekend, you'll find them here.
If you haven't heard yet, Google Maps received its biggest Android update in, well, ever earlier this week. This is an all-new app in any practical sense, and it's going to take some getting used to. Not only has Google changed the way basically everything works in at least some sense of the word, it's also gone on something of a culling expedition - the new Maps app is way more streamlined and, frankly, simpler than the old one.
Pimp Your Screen is an iOS port that has received a complete makeover for its Android debut. While the original gives our Apple peers customizable app shelves and themed locked screens, our version comes decked out with a trunkful of decent wallpapers and nifty widgets. There's little here that we Android enthusiasts couldn't find elsewhere, but this is a nice tool to hand to a new or casual user who wants to pimp their ride without having to give it too much effort.
If you want to listen to an audiobook, Audible is the number one source. Though, the app was never great on Android. It wasn't terrible, but it didn't have a strong Android aesthetic and the layout was strange. With the version 1.5 update, that's a thing of the past. The app looks excellent now, and there are other improvements too.
We've all been there – your parent, friend, or significant other is having a phone issue, but you're not nearby. The process of talking someone through troubleshooting via IM or voice is frustrating at best. Well, at long last TeamViewer QuickSupport has come to all Android devices. It was previously only available on select Samsung phones. With this app installed, you can access a phone or tablet remotely from a desktop computer running Windows, Linux, or OS X.
