Foursquare Update Adds GrubHub Seamless Integration For In-App Restaurant Deliveries

This is 2014. We may not have flying cars, hoverboards, or self-drying jackets, but dammit, we can find new and lazier ways to eat good food. Take GrubHub (and its BFF Seamless) for example: a centralized repository of restaurants that will be more than happy to bring you food in the middle of an 8-hour League of Legends binge. Today the combined company is teaming up with Foursquare, so you don't even have to visit their website to get your grub on.

[New App] AutoPebble Brings Tasker-Style Functionality To Your Pebble Smartwatch, Requires 2.0 Firmware To Use

The Pebble is a humble smartwatch, and this is one of its biggest strengths. It doesn't have a color screen, it can hardly do anything without being paired to a phone, and the functions it supports out of the box are very limited. But the device has the support of a large community, and this greatly expands its usefulness for people who want to do more with their $149 purchase. AutoPebble is one of the more complex apps to hit the platform, as it pretty much does for Pebble what Tasker does for Android.

One of the most popular free apps on iOS has made the jump (or flight) over to Android, and now you are free to get addicted to it as well. Flappy Bird is a brutally simple game that has you maneuver a bird around some pipes. This is apparently entertaining.

Latest Evernote For Android Beta Introduces Handwriting Support, Here's How To Join The Official Beta Testing Channel

The latest Evernote beta lets you take notes the old-fashioned way. No, you won't have to deal with tangled up spiral notebooks, but if you have a stylus or a tiny finger, you can doodle away illegible sprawl like the best of them. Just tap the pen button in the note editor and you can jot down text you will kick yourself for not typing when you're wondering three months from now if that is an "M" or an "N." Or is it a "W"?

[New Game] Minigore 2: Zombies Shoots Its Way Into The Play Store, Gets Bright Red Blood All Over The Place

Blood is a peculiar thing. The mere sight of it grosses many of us out, but if it's pixelated and splattered all over an HD display, we can't get enough. Minigore is the kind of game that doesn't beat around the bush - it's violent, it's bloody, and it's uncomfortably adorable. The sequel has now made its way over to Android in all of its gory glory.

[New Game] Marvel Run Jump Smash Is The Best Superhero Bobblehead Game You'll See Today

Marvel continues its onslaught of games in the Play Store, and this time they've decided to take the well-trodden road marked "endless runner." Marvel Run Jump Smash is pretty typical of the genre, and at first it looks like a carbon copy of Jetpack Joyride. But there's a surprising amount of depth beneath that cutesy exterior, and the 2D art might be enough for the one dollar entry fee alone.

You start off as a basic SHIELD agent, either Nick Fury or Maria Hill, running and jumping through a fairly typical sprite environment.
