The Angry Birds franchise has thus far been on the lighter side of the free-to-play model - the original game launched free and ad-supported on Android, and later versions added small charges for HD versions and a few in-app bonuses like the Mighty Eagle.

The On-Device Google Play Store Now Has A Chromecast Section For All Seven Apps That Support It

Chromecast has been slowly but steadily adding support from major media apps since it launched: Hulu Plus, Pandora, and HBO GO have joined Netflix and Google's own Play Music, Play Movies, and YouTube.

I played one year of a baseball as a kid, and for a brief - very brief - period in my life, I imagined what it would be like to play on a Major League Baseball team.

If you're listening to music while using your phone or tablet for something else, you don't always want to stop what you're doing to fiddle with the song. If you're in a game, for example, you may have to exit to the home screen just to get to your music controls, but SidePlayer offers an alternative.

SoundSeeder Does Its Best Chromecast Impression, Adds Google Play Music Streaming In The Latest Update

A few months ago we told you about a nifty music streaming app called SoundSeeder, which lets you stream audio directly from one Android device to another over WiFi. At the time I mentioned that it was a cool idea, but the fact that it didn't allow users to stream Google Music songs over the connection was a bit of a let down.
