Tha 13 Icon Pack From Tha Phlash Is The Bloodiest, Goriest, Nastiest Way To Rotten Up Your Home Screens

Most people who know me are aware of how much I love horror movies. And out of all genres of horror, old school slashers are probably my favorite - the more guts, the better. Also, I'm a sucker for a chainsaw...but generally only when Leatherface is holding it. <3

If you're into blood and gore like I'm into blood and gore, and you want to translate that particular obsession onto your homescreen, a new icon pack from Tha Phlash called 13 is sure to make you tingle all over.

Sony Releases A SmartEyeglass Companion App In The Play Store

Sony is apparently really serious about creating its own Google Glass competitor. You'd think Google's inability to talk everyone into wearing a computer on their faces would give Sony pause, but here we are with the official Sony SmartEyeglass app in the Play Store.

Chrono List Is A Simple, Material, And Completely Free Interval Timer

Sometimes developers strike (figurative) gold. They send an app submission just when you're thinking that you need to find an app that does the exact same thing, and it's Presidents Day so your plate is otherwise empty and you can try it out. Such is the case with Chrono List. But let's back up.

For a few days now, I have been thinking how silly it is that I have to keep staring at my treadmill's timer to figure out when to switch speeds during my runs.

Anki Overdrive Expands On The Original Toys With Modular Build-It-Yourself Tracks And AI Boss Fights

The currently-available Anki Drive series of toys are undeniably cool, allowing players to drive tiny remote controlled cars along real tracks with their smartphones while the app keeps track of video game-inspired additions like weapons and power-ups. The next iteration of the toy, Anki Overdrive, is set to take things to the next level when it debuts this fall. The most visible addition is the new piece-by-piece track system, including risers for overpasses and jumps, walls for faster banks, and a modular design that allows for near-infinite expansion.

Google Adds Some Valentine's Day Treats To Hangouts

 

If you're wishing someone a happy Valentine's day using Hangouts today rather than face-to-face, Google's got a special easter egg for you.

Back in December, Google added tons of special animations to Hangouts, triggered by words like "woohoo" or "yay!!" or "lmao," but it looks like there are some extra treats for Valentine's day. Typing "Happy Valentine's," or "Happy Valentine's day" will trigger a few heart-themed animations, featuring a love-struck emoji or a fox gifting flowers to its duck Valentine.

This easter egg seems to be part of Google's effort to make Valentine's day special for users across its web properties, with other tricks including a heart-filled +1 action on Google+ (seen below) and Google's "special edition" reCAPTCHAs.

Branchfire Updates Popular iAnnotate PDF Viewer With New Play Store Listing, Asks Users To Get Off Old Version

Adobe's proprietary PDF format isn't much fun to work with on any platform, but marking up and editing those documents on Android is a particularly poor experience. Developer Branchfire has offered an Android version of its iAnnotate app for a little over two years, but it hasn't been met with the same acclaim as the iOS version, probably thanks to a clunky interface and missing features. Apparently the company wanted a clean break with the latest update, because the app has been moved to a new Play Store listing and reverted to a 1.0 release. The new app is also free.

Impulse is made by notorious customizer and icon designer Tha PHLASH.

Disa, A Messaging Client That Can Merge Conversations Across Services, Is Now Available As A Public Beta

One of the problems with instant messaging since time immemorial has been juggling contacts and conversations across multiple services. It's bothersome on desktops, and it's especially unwieldy on mobile devices, where multitasking isn't as easy and similar sounding chimes can send you searching through the wrong app for the latest reply.

Disa is a new Android messaging client that attempts to tackle this problem. It has been in development for a long time, spending a healthy period in private alpha being tested by over 33,000 people before making its way to the Play Store in the form of a private beta.

Xposed Framework For Lollipop Is Now Available As An Alpha

The day you've (maybe) been waiting for has finally arrived—Xposed for Android 5.0 is finally available on XDA. Developer rovo89 posted a teaser the other day, and has followed through on his vague promise of "soon." Installation is a bit more complicated than it was on KitKat, but nothing you can't handle, I'm sure.

Trading RPG 'Merchants Of Kaidan' Costs $5.99, But It Might Just Make You Rich

Merchants of Kaidan is a game of buying and selling. If there's action—say you lose a finger in a bet, or a winged beast is pursuing your ship—it's only part of the inherent risk in bringing goods to market. People out there have money to spend, and you can't be timid if you want your share of it.

That's the sense of purpose that guides players through Merchants of Kaidan, a trading game with RPG elements that may get some players thinking back to Sid Meier's Pirates!, only with merchants and less combat (along with noticeably fewer eye patches). The challenge here is from acquiring goods without getting robbed, buying low, and selling high.
