Logitech makes some of the finest universal remotes available, with all sorts of buttons and touchscreens. The Harmony remotes might be super-neat, but the Android app has long suffered from a terminal case of ugly. Well, no more with the most recent update. It looks like an app you'd want to use.

R.G.B. Is A Simple And Deceptively Difficult Take On The Guitar Hero Formula

It seems like we've seen every possible iteration of the Guitar Hero style of musical game. But thanks to the creativity of developers, we're caught off guard on occasion. Case in point: R.G.B. It's a pretty simple rhythm game with only three lanes, making it technically much easier than the games that it imitates. But a deceptively slow pace and an addictive main mechanic mean it's more than the sum of its parts.

AntiSquad Tactics Offers Colorful Turn-Based Combat In Both Free-To-Play And Premium Versions

Tactical strategy is an interesting hybrid game genre, combining the thinking and placement of a strategy title with the turn-based combat and slow burn improvements of an RPG. AntiSquad Tactics is the first original take on squad strategy we've seen in a while, and unlike games such as X-COM, it's designed for mobile first. But what might interest the purist gamers in the audience is that AntiSquad is available in both a free-to-play and a premium version.

[MMMBBBAAA] Goat Simulator Arrives On Android In All Its Buggy, Insane, Physics-Defying Glory

There are simulation games that strive for perfect duplication of their source material, whose developers will accept nothing less than factual and technical excellence. This is not one of those games. Say hello to Goat Simulator, part physics sandbox, part tongue-in-cheek gaming commentary, and all completely balls-out insane. You are a goat, and you do goaty things, which mostly involves flinging your thick and smelly body around a 3D environment and seeing what happens.

But every now and then a game slips in that really took its time.

Google Renames Maps Engine To 'My Maps,' Introduces A New Logo And Other Small Improvements

Here's a Google app that few people would judge you for not knowing about. There's this thing formerly known as Maps Engine that lets people create custom maps and share them with others. Now it goes by the name of My Maps. And, put bluntly, it's a change that makes sense. This conveys to users what the app actually does. Map Engine? Not so much.
