After a several-month-long stint on the Amazon Appstore (and an even longer one on iOS), epic open world RPG Aralon: Sword and Shadow is finally on the Play Store. The title is by Crescent Moon Games, the team also responsible for the decidedly less hack-and-slashy Paper Monsters.

Aralon promises 30 hours of story-infused action, with four character classes and three races to choose from. Visually, it looks like a mashup of Neverwinter Nights and The Elder Scrolls, which certainly adds to the appeal.

If, like many people in the UK, you like to sit down to a bit of The Inbetweeners or The IT Crowd in the evening, or maybe you just like your news delivered by Jon Snow, you're going to like what we're about to tell you: Channel 4 has finally made its 4oD app available on Android.

Using the app, you'll be able to watch content from Channel 4, E4 and More4 without paying a penny, although like most other catch-up TV services, the content will be ad-supported before you begin to watch your show.

Against all odds, Rebellion's first title – Judge Dredd vs. Zombies – was actually a solid game. Its top-down shoot-em-up style is always a fun choice, and, let's be honest, it's hard to go wrong with zombies. So, take note game devs: if you have a good idea that's missing that special something, it's zombies. Just add zombies.

But, back to Rebellion. These guys just released a new game to the Play Store called Guns 4 Hire, and while it doesn't have anything to do with zombies, there's no shortage of bullet-blasting action.

Popular (and well-established) music manager/player Winamp got an update today, bringing the app to version 1.4.6 and introducing (among other things) long-awaited notification player controls. The controls match the look and feel of the app they belong to, using a design language that (unfortunately) doesn't look like it's been revisited in a while. That said, they work like a charm, and add much-needed functionality.

Besides that, users will enjoy several bug fixes (primarily involving SHOUTcast and AAC playback), and some streamlined code on the Now Playing screen.

Carbon has had a long and tumultuous journey on its way to the Google Play Store. It was a headlining app on the now-defunct webOS. After that it enjoyed a brief stint on Windows Phone before the developers rage-quit the Microsoft ecosystem. So here we are many months later and Carbon is finally tweeting from an Android phone near you. Was it worth the wait? Can it unseat the reigning champions of Twitter?

Since the dawn of time, people have been using the internet to share images of cats and food (and maybe some other stuff). Then something called Instagram came along that changed the way people share said images. As a social network based on pictures, everything from your bff's lunch to what your Aunt Cindy is making for dinner was only a tap, flick, and touch away. There was only one problem: Instagram was only available in the mobile space.

With its monochromatic palette and tinkly music, you might confuse Shapes & Sound for a "chill" game. Not so: it's inspired by the twitchy vector shooters of yore, like Asteroids and Tempest. But while those titles offered no more complexity than a rising difficulty curve, Shapes & Sound combines some simple yet appealing graphics with deep gameplay.

The core of the game is simple: tap around your shape to shoot at those flying towards you.

Good Lord, The Simpsons has been on the air for twenty-four years. There's nothing that America's animated nuclear family can do on TV that they haven't done before. Maybe that's why Fox seems to insist upon thrusting them into other mediums, most notably video games. The latest destination for the jaundiced citizens of Springfield is The Simpsons: Tapped Out, a shameless ripoff loving homage to the city building genre typified by Sim City.

MoviePass sounds like a pretty fantastic service for movie buffs. Pay a set fee every month, and you can go to the theater as much as you would like (with a fairly lengthy list of caveats). It's Netflix, but for all the movies that are out now. While it wouldn't be of much interest to the casual viewer who might only see one or two flicks a year, the avid viewer could save tons of money.
