If you're a GO Launcher EX user and the recently updated WidgetLocker isn't your thing, then you may want to check out GO Locker to get your lockscreen mod fix. The initial release hit the Market earlier today -- I took a few minutes to play with it, and, while it's not as polished as WidgetLocker, it's still a very nice option. The fact that it integrates directly into GO Launcher EX is quite nice, too; of course, this could also be a negative since it can't be used as a standalone app.
WidgetLocker is no stranger to the spotlight -- it's easily the most popular lockscreen replacement app on the Market. With good reason, too: it's highly customizable and allows you actually make good use of the otherwise useless lockscreen.
TeslaCoil Software, the creative minds behind WidgetLocker, pushed the newest version of the app to the Market just a bit ago, and with it came some really nice features to an already incredible app, like the ICS, Honeycomb, and Sense 3 Unlock sliders -- and they all work perfectly.
Wind-Up Knight is a high-end 3D action game that will destroy you. That is the first sentence of the Market listing for the new game from development team Robot Invader. Pretty big words to live up to, don't you think? Whether it will actually destroy me or not will have to be seen, but, after watching the gameplay trailer, I can safely say that it looks awesome.
Impressive, no? It has more to offer than smooth side-scrolling graphics and a quirky-cute aesthetic appeal, too.
If, like me, you have always wanted a good data sync solution for your Android device, then we have a new app for you to check out. It's called My Sync Center, and it syncs data between your device and PC using your local Wi-Fi connection. This allows you to keep certain data up-to-date regardless of which device you're using, easily backup photos and videos, keep copies of your Titanium Backup files, and more.
If you're the type who is into monster trucks, then you're probably going to love Megastunt Mayhem. The gist is pretty simple: make your big truck do all kinds of crazy flips, tricks, hops, jumps and other stunts. As a result of landing said tricks, you get paid, which, in turn, you can use the money to modify your truck even more. See where this is going?
Enough chatter. Gameplay:
Don't feel like watching the video?
An analysis of recently compiled data by ABI Research indicates that Android phones are for the first time downloading apps in greater numbers than Apple's iPhone. This would seem like a milestone, but ABI's research also shows that while the total number of apps downloaded onto Android devices in the last quarter exceeds that of the iPhone, Android handsets outnumber iPhones by a factor of 2.4 to 1.
This means that Android users are still downloading far fewer apps on an individual basis than iPhone owners - ABI suggests by a ratio of 2 to 1 one, in Apple's favor.
As part of a special Halloween promotion, Gameloft is offering two of its premium titles (as well as Uno) on the Android Market for a paltry $0.99 each for a "limited time." We assume this means until Halloween, but Gameloft's app descriptions don't specify.
Order And Chaos is the largest (and really only) MMORPG on Android, and with your $0.99 purchase you'll receive a free 3 month game subscription, after which you'll have to pay a monthly fee to continue accessing the game.
Continuing on the quest for the perfect dialer to replace Android's stock phone application, I've come across Contapps Contacts & Dialer, an app I had never heard of until I began scouring the market. For a free dialer app, it has a lot to offer, and I'm surprised that it isn't more popular.
At A Glance
Contapps is a dialer replacement that is simple, practical, and well-designed, with enough extra features to make it feel new.
