It's pretty impressive how quickly LEGO has transitioned from a conventional toy (sorry, versatile interlocking brick system) manufacturer into a media powerhouse, with entries touching every part of pop culture. Their latest game for Android is actually a port of an existing browser game, made using the ubiquitous Unity engine. LEGO Creator Islands lets players log into their LEGO ID account to continue play across the web and Android platforms, or just go it alone on mobile.
Google Drive already supplies more storage space than the average student needs, but that hasn't stopped the company from raising the bar further. Today it announced Drive for Education, which it will provide to all Google Apps for Education customers at no extra charge. The primary perk of this new offering is unlimited storage space. Users will be able to upload individual files up to 5TB in size. Yes, you read that right--that's a single file that takes up more space than a regular Google Drive paid account can handle.
As part of the new rules that will require developers of paid apps to disclose an address, Google is also adding price ranges for in-app purchases to the Play Store. The change was set to go into effect today, according to Google, and sure enough the Play Store client on phones and tablets is showing the cost of in-app purchases in apps. However, it's literally only the price range.
The other half of Google's Play Store policy changes looks to be going into effect alongside the new in-app purchase price ranges. Developers who have added their addresses to the dev console will now see them posted on the public Play Store page for all to see. This bit of info is in the expanded information section with the changelog and IAP prices. It's currently only showing up in the Android client, but the web store probably won't be far behind.
HTC has updated its Sense TV app more than a few times since dropping the app into the Play Store, really highlighting the benefits of separating app updates from new firmware releases. On the other side of the coin, the changes in each of these updates aren't particularly drastic. They're not going to win you over if you're not a regular Sense TV user, but they're nice to see if you are.
The Humble Bundle for PC and Mobile 11 was already a good deal with 10 total games if you paid $11 or more, but the deal is getting even good-er now that three more games have been added. The new arrivals are Quest of Dungeons, Don't Move, and Space Chem. If you already bought the bundle, check your download link. The new titles should already be there. As for everyone else, we have some codes to give away.
TiVo customers are accustomed to convenience. That's the fundamental premise behind recording TV shows for later, after all. Sure, it sucks to miss a show because it came on during a time when you were busy, but that's more of an annoyance than a problem. The latest version of the Android app addresses a similar annoyance--being restricted to whichever room the big screen is in. After quite a wait, customers are now free to stream TiVo content and live TV directly to their mobile devices.
Music streaming service Spotify has crept over the border into the unforgiving arctic north of Canada today, bringing with it the gift of music. Spotify touts its 20 million song catalog and 320kbps audio quality, but that's less special than it once was. What does make Spotify special for Canadians is that it's actually available in Canada unlike some services.
