How goes your crusade against the walking undead? No, not the vampires, the zombies. Taking on the shambling masses is getting a little sci-fi twist today with v2.1.1 of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The new far future world includes a ton of new content, and an old favorite feature from the original is making its triumphant return.
The new zone includes 24 levels, 8 new plants, and 10 new space-themed zombies.
Almost a year ago, Microsoft released Office Mobile for Android phones to the Play Store. The caveat, of course, was that it required an Office 365 subscription in order to use the application, which was kind of a bummer.
Just a quick update for Samsung device owners who, like me, found that the LastPass app fill was unable to fill any passwords after the very exciting 3.2 update. The latest version 3.2.3, which just popped up on the Play Store, specifically addresses this bug:
Fix app fill on Samsung devices. Please contact our support staff if you still have issues.
I've confirmed that the fix indeed works by successfully logging into both the Amazon app and the Amazon site in Chrome Beta on my Note 3:
The Pebble can handle plenty of functions thanks to a wide range of third-party apps, but interacting with messages typically remains a passive experience. Naturally, someone had to address this. Reqallable, an app that provides smartwatch wearers with the ability to respond to email and text messages without pulling out their phones, has added the Pebble to its list of supported devices.
Collectable card battle games are incredibly popular on the Play Store and its mobile contemporaries, perhaps only outnumbered by various Bird ripoffs of the Angry and Flappy variety. Now you can get your tedious, IAP-riddled card action on in a Star Wars flavor, because Assault Team is available in the United States (and probably a lot of other places as well). For the one guy who's been patiently waiting since the Australian test release, this is very exciting news.
The HTC One M8 became official two days ago, and HTC's been having more than its share of headlines among mobile tech sites ever since. Want a break? Tough. Here's KitKat for the Sprint HTC One Max. OTA software updates are currently rolling out to users, bumping them up to software version 2.09.651.1.
In October of last year 2K Games released NBA 2K14 as an exclusive download for the Kindle Fire. Now here we are, some five months later, and the company has decided the time has finally come to drop the year's biggest NBA game into the Play Store. That's one hell of an exclusivity period.
Like its Amazon counterpart, the Play version of the game is going for $7.99, but the download seems to be significantly larger on Play.
HeroCraft has released another game into the Play Store, and while you've never heard its name before, you already know how to play. Neon Commander is what you get when you install Space Invaders, but instead of firing back with a space ship of your own, you bounce enemy projectiles back towards them a la Breakout. With my skills, that means the world is doomed, but at least the game concept isn't.
MyColorScreen's Themer is already an impressively powerful app for making your phone look cool. But for something that's supposed to encourage customization, it's surprisingly limiting - you can choose from a wide variety of user-created homescreens, but there aren't many options for tweaking them. With the latest update, Themer gives end users the ability to add some flair of their own via icon packs.
Themer should work with the vast majority of icon packs that are already in the Play Store and designed for more typical launchers like Nova and Apex.
Wonder Momo is one of those things that's popular in Japan, but less so elsewhere. There was an arcade game in the late 80s, an ongoing web comic, and a few game ports on other devices (also for Japan). Now we can all get a look at the weirdness that is Wonder Momo: Typhoon Booster. All you need is an Nvidia Shield and 15 bucks.
