[New Game] Line Of Defense Tactics, A Real-Time Strategy Game Spawned From An MMO, Launches For Android And Other Platforms

If we've learned anything from World of Warcraft, it's that strategy games and MMOs go hand in hand. Blizzard's role-playing game has been consuming lives for over a decade now, but it began as an RTS that was arguably every bit as engrossing. Line of Defense is taking a different approach. This MMO has now spawned a tactics game available for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and, yes, Android - all on the same day.

Yahoo Kills Yet Another Product - IntoNow, Video Identification App, Has Already Disappeared From Google Play

Do you use your smartphone while watching TV? Yeah, put your hands down. We're all guilty here. Yahoo hoped to take advantage of this habit of ours with IntoNow, an app that could identify whatever show was on and provide extra information about it (think SoundHound for TV). Yeah, the end result was still distracting, but it could be less disruptive than performing a Google search. Regardless, it doesn't matter anymore.

Google Play Newsstand 3.1 Adds Widget, Mini Cards, And Translation Options [APK Download]

Newsstand is one of the younger apps in Google's portfolio, but today it's getting a significant update to version 3.1. The biggest change - and a welcome one for at-a-glance newshounds - is a brand-spanking new widget. It's a pretty basic 4X3 affair - the widget will display a single story at a time, complete with headline and embedded image. Tap the arrow button to advance to the next headline, or anywhere else to go directly to the story in Newsstand.

Google has pushed out an update to the Google Search app, which now means there's also an update to the Google Experience Launcher.

[APK Download] Hangouts Updated To v2.0.303, Fixes More MMS And SMS Bugs

Update: Here's the official changelog.

● Fixed a bug that prevented some from sending SMS longer than 160 characters

Google Drive Update Brings New 1x1 Quick Scan Widget And Support For Animated GIFs [APK Download]

Looks like another big "Update Wednesday" for Google, starting with the Drive app. Today's update brings just a couple of small-ish changes... unless, like the rest of the internet, you have an obsession with animated GIFs. Or you scan a lot of documents. Or both.

What's New

  • New 1x1 widget for faster document scanning
  • Support for animated GIFs
  • Bug fixes

It's worth noting that the widget doesn't actually show up under the widgets menu on launchers like Nova, but rather under the "shortcuts" option.

[New App] Project Management Tool Basecamp Comes To Android With An Official App

Sometimes you need help getting things done, and Basecamp is particularly adept at that. Basecamp is the most popular project management tool on the web (we even use it here at Android Police), but now there's an official Android app with to-dos, discussions, and more. There is much celebration on the team right now.

Basecamp has a mobile web interface, but this app is (thankfully) more than just a web wrapper.
