Sportsball is serious business, or so I'm told. The Coach's Eye app has been a popular way to do slow-motion analysis of swings, kicks, and other sports-type motions, and now you can test it out for the reasonable price of free. The old paid version is no longer supported – it's all about the free app, but the developer isn't forgetting about those paying customers.
The new free Coach's Eye app has the same functionality as the original $4.99 app, but you access it through an in-app purchase.
The Amazon Appstore hasn't exactly grown to rival Google Play in size or overall quality, but there's still some cool stuff over there. And if you can get it for free? That's a pretty good deal. Amazon is offering $5 to spend on apps and all you have to do is download something.
Starting on December 24th and running through the 28th, anyone who downloads an app or game using the latest version of the Amazon Appstore client will get a $5 credit to spend on Appstore content.
It's time for a good old fashioned non-denominational holiday celebration here at Android Police HQ. What better way to celebrate the season than with some apps and games – and at reasonable prices. The holidays are expensive enough without paying full price for apps, right?
We've covered Koushik Dutta's AllCast before: it's an Airplay/DLNA streaming app that lets you stream all the things. Now it's out of beta, and you don't have to jump through any hoops to get it: just head to the Play Store and download that sucker to your cell phone telephone. The free version includes advertising, splash screens, and a 60-second streaming limitation, while the $5 Premium unlock app is unlimited.
The app is a streamer for any local video or photos on your Android device.
SwiftKey is well-known for being one of the best third-party keyboards available for Android. What users of other keyboards may not know, however, is that the company also loves to bake little surprises into the app, especially around the holidays (like the "tilt" feature from April Fool's Day).
While the keyboard has already received a festive holiday theme with the most recent update, that's not the only wintery goodness the developers threw into the keyboard – there's a fun little easter egg, too.
The titular valet in No Brakes Valet isn't quite as bad as the famous garage attendant from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He is, in fact, a professional. And he'd be well on his way to the Valet Hall Of Fame... if it weren't for an apparently religious opposition to using the brake pedal. It's the sort of minor personal hang-up that can really sink a career in vehicular services.
No Brakes Valet was originally an OUYA title, though it comes from slightly notable indie developer Captain Games, of Enviro-Bear 2010 and BEEFWAR fame.
The Thermodo was successfully funded on Kickstarter last Spring to the tune of $336,018. The designers were only seeking $35,000 to build the tiny electrical thermometer, but apparently people really want to know what the temperature is in the general vicinity of their headphone jack. The device has reached most backers and now the promised Android app has hit the Play Store.
"I want my MTV" was the promotional slogan that Music Television used to get itself onto just about every American cable company. Twenty years later the network seems to have just about anything except music on its lineup, but if you still want it, the new official app can deliver MTV's programming right to your Android phone. The self-titled MTV app grants access to current shows in an on-demand setup, but only if you already pay for cable or satellite TV.
