What's better than getting a bargain on cool Android games? Contributing to charity in the process, obviously. The Android Humble Bundle is currently in its fifth incarnation, and invites gamers to choose their own price to support developers and charities like Child's Play and the EFF. The current deal already includes six DRM-free titles, but the good folks behind the Humble Bundle have brought back three games from Humble Bundle 4 for a total of 9 games.
Are your nightmares set on a thin path bordered by trees? Do your thumbs reflexively swipe left or right before turning down a hallway? Do you fear flying monkeys? If you've answered 'yes' to any those questions, you might have Temple Run Syndrome. If your symptoms are not too severe, try out Catcha Catcha Aliens! for something a little different.
Players are set loose to help fend off otherworldly creatures that are causing distress for the locals.
Nuance released its take on voice actions – Dragon Mobile Assistant – back in October of 2012, aiming to put "a Jarvis-like mini-mobile voice-enabled assistant" by your side. That's a huge order to fill, but the company is definitely edging towards a fully voice-controlled mobile, and today's update makes the app even more useful by adding a handful of new features.
Do you like killing zombies? Do you like driving cars equipped with various weapons, armor, and ramming tools a la Mad Max? Then you may already have heard of Earn To Die - a popular iOS and web Flash game that lets you satisfy both of your urges in one fell zombiecarpocalypse.
Earn To Die's premise is simple: kill zombies, and do so with your roided-out killing machine of a automobile.
I may not be world's biggest fan of runner games, but Jones On Fire is one even I couldn't ignore. The premise is simple: you're a rectangular prism-shaped fireman, saving rectangular prism-shaped cats, in a very rectangular world, from some very rectangular fire and various other rectangular obstacles.
Streaming internet radio is far from a new concept, but if you're a doubleTwist user who longs to journey outside the realm of your personal collection, it has previously required the use of another service, like Pandora or Spotify. If, like me, it's your druthers to unify everything, today brings about some good news: doubleTwist now has its own built-in streaming radio.
Dubbed Magic Radio, the service takes your existing collection and essentially builds off of it to give you more music that you love.
That's not just any rabbit with a samurai sword on your Android device. That's Usagi Yojimbo from the classic comic book series created by Stan Sakai and currently published by Dark Horse Comics. Now you can finally step into Usagi Yojimbo's sandals and fight your way through 13 levels of comic book-style action.
Way of the Ronin is a 2D side-scrolling beat-'em-up infused with the unique style of the Usagi Yojimbo comics.
A few days ago, a pair of apps called RemotePlay and RemotePlayM by new Android developer Piddas21, a subsidiary of Taiwanese Quanta Computer, hit the Play Store ahead of SXSW. The idea is great - media and document sharing in real-time, across multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows 8. Want to easily stream a video from your Nexus 4 to your iPad? No problem - it should be as simple as dragging it to a bucket with your iPad's name on it, and voila - you're watching a video on the big screen.
Like it or not, your credit score dominates all the financial details of your life. Most services that provide you access to these all-important values have a fee attached, but that's not the case with Credit Karma, which has just arrived on Android. You could be forgiven for being wary of an app that asks for so much personal information, but Credit Karma is the real deal and provides a killer service.
Video editors are pretty commonplace today on Android, though few of them are exactly pretty. And even fewer are as straightforward to use as they should be. Enter WeVideo. WeVideo is actually a web-based video editing and cloud storage service, but they've expanded their reach with an app for Android, now on the Play Store in a limited beta.
You'll have to be using either a Galaxy S III, Note, Note II, Galaxy Nexus, or Nexus 4 in order to use it for the time being, though that's a prerequisite many of you likely meet.
