I don't know much about baskets-the-ball - sorry fans, Cameron would probably write this article if he was still around. But I have to admit that the NBA has something interesting with InPlay, its latest official mobile app. InPlay automatically detects whatever game happens to be playing on TV in the background via the microphone, no matter what teams or which channel. But that's only the first cool part of the experience. Read More
Runner games aren't exactly thin on the ground on the Play Store - we've essentially stopped covering them unless they offer something new and unique to players. Geometry Dash isn't exactly groundbreaking in terms of its actual structure, but the execution of its rhythm-based gameplay and the polish of the levels have earned it a small but dedicated fanbase.

Custom Quick Settings can add a ton of them that do all sorts of things. This app just got a big update to v2.0 with more powerful tiles and full control over which ones show up in your editing UI.

Fans of the mega-hit TV adaptation of The Walking Dead seem to be cooling on the series after its latest dramatic antics, but the Telltale adventure game series (based on the comic book source material) is still going strong. After an all-too-brief side story with fan-favorite baddass Michonne, the game is back to its primary storyline with the release of Season 3, "A New Frontier."
