Typically, about a week after a new Humble Bundle launches, the indie game distributor adds a few more titles to the mix as a reward for those who contribute above the average price. This time around, Another World, Funky Smugglers, and Raiden Legacy are the ones topping off the pack if you've pitched in $5.53 (at time of this writing) or higher.

With the new additions, this brings the total number of titles up to nine, and at five and a half bucks, you're looking at around $0.62 per game.

Samsung has an app called Push Service that it uses to manage push notifications for its collection of applications found on a variety of phones and tablets. Also, according to user reviews, it can defeat the Amish Army, instantly cure your chronic depression, and raise your pets from the grave. We're not sure if many users will have a need for this, but it can probably find a niche home.

Here's just a sample of what Samsung's Push Service can do for you (note: some reviews may have some colorful descriptions):

Since Google acquired Quickoffice last year, the internet has been quietly hoping that the investment will result in a much improved document editing experience on Android. So far, there hasn't been a monumental shift, but now the company is releasing Quickoffice for Google Apps For Business. For real.

The suite is only available for users of Google Apps For Business, obviously, but if your company is in that group, then enjoy your new, free applications.

Though it was originally promised before the end of 2012, Futuremark has finally made good on its plans to bring a version of its highly popular graphics benchmark 3DMark to Android.

The mobile version of 3DMark uses a demo known as 'Ice Storm' to stretch your GPU's legs to their respective limits, and is definitely rather impressive to watch. Testing on an Optimus G Pro with a Snapdragon 600 chipset, it's apparent that even the top-tier Adreno 320 GPU begins to struggle under the intense demands of Ice Storm, and not merely during wide-pan shots: intricate models, effects, and textures are used in the demo.

Like all red-blooded American males, I spend my days sitting around thinking, "Man, I sure wish I could play a button-masher fighting game on my phone staring the one and only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson." Today my prayers were answered in a totally extreme way. WWE has released Rockpocalypse, with The Rock himself punching and kicking his way through 18 levels of pain. Did I mention it's extreme? EXTREME!

This isn't a wrestling game, despite being published by WWE.

Whether due to neglect or a topsy-turvy set of priorities, Android developers sometimes leave out basic features like lock screen or notification (I'm looking at you, Spotify) controls. Well, Pandora is fixing at least some of its problems with an update that brings the ability to pause or skip tracks from the lock screen. Unfortunately, notification controls still aren't available but, hey. One step at a time.

2013-04-01 20.31.59

Here's the full change log:

What's in this version:

- Lock screen controls for devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and later
- Added elapsed and remaining timestamps to the track progress indicator
- Reduced startup time
- Bug fixes and enhancements

Aside from the lock screen controls, it's not a huge update, but it's always encouraging to see a prominent developer truly take advantage of what Android can do.

Earlier this morning, we added SwiftKey Tilt to our 2013 April Fool's day post. At first blush, it just looks like another funny idea made specifically for April Fool's Day – little did we know that Tilt is actually a real feature. According to a comment left on the official SwiftKey Blog, you can enable Tilt by long-pressing on the word "tilt" in the suggested words area above the keyboard in the newest version of the app.

It's time for us to come clean. We've been collectively living a lie, Android fans. Hiding our deepest desires and hoping they go away. Praying that maybe, Duarte willing, that we'll get something that's close enough that we'll be satisfied. But no more! Today, we shed the façade and embrace the truth: all we really want is a clean, simple UI that's not cluttered by drawers, widgets, or icons in shapes other than rounded squares.
