We love Tasker. And we mostly love the Pebble Smartwatch. But there's no denying that the utility of the Pebble is somewhat limited - right now you get calls, emails, texts, Facebook, and a few more remote notifications. With the Pebble Notifier plugin for Tasker, the Swiss Army knife of Android apps can send alerts for anything and everything happening on your phone. It may be the single most useful thing that could happen to Pebble.

If you're into old school shoot-em-up sidescrollers, it's hard to beat the Metal Slug series. One can only imagine the insane amount of time and devotion that SNK put into making these 16-bit wonders back when they were headlining titles for the Neo-Geo brand. They were near instant cult classics in Japan, and when they found a new home on the original Play Station console, saw even greater worldwide acclaim.

When the first Metal Slug came to Android, we were quite excited.

If you ever spent hours on the Etch-a-Sketch and thought that what it could really use was a dual-core processor, check out the video below. It's The Sandbox, an iOS hit game that's headed for Android soon. Well, "game" may not be the right word - it's more of a simplistic art/animation/music engine that happens to be played like a game. You take on the role of "apprentice deity" and get to play with the classical elements, completing simple missions or moving freestyle on the face of the waters.

So, Carbon isn't quite the Twitter powerhouse you were hoping for. No worries: the old Android standard Plume is still rolling along. The app gets a major update today, after being tried out by beta testers for a few weeks. Plume 5 adds the standard bug fixes and performance enhancements, plus a much-needed visual refresh of its homescreen widget (something that Carbon lacks, and Falcon can't do without a separate app).

Earlier this week we reported that EA had finally ported the Simpsons-themed Sim City clone Tapped Out to Android. Unfortunately, they decided to hold off on a North American release in favor of a "rest of world" rollout, perhaps to iron out the bugs. Well good news, neighborinos: Tapped Out is now available to North America, and the device access issues seem to have been ironed out.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out starts with Homer predictably destroying Springfield via a manipulative fremium game, so the player has to re-assemble the town with familiar landmarks.

The long-awaited Carbon for Twitter app landed on the Play Store a few days ago, but some were of the opinion that it wasn't quite finished yet. This happens in software development. Nothing to be worried about. What should cause worry is if problems persist for months or years at a time (*coughGoogleVoicecough*).  On that note, it should be very encouraging that the developers have already rolled out an update that includes a variety of bug fixes.

The new app backup offering from ClockworkMod is one of the most impressive apps we've seen recently. It makes saving your app data a breeze, and it doesn't even require root. The initial release was good, but Koush has pushed an update that adds a few features and cleans up some errant bugs.

A doctor did this. Before I get any deeper into this story, I want to point out that a person with the prefix "Dr." in front of his name—Dr. Christopher Culligan, a Canadian ER physician and instructor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, to be precise—is responsible for this mobile app that promises to infer a man's size based on a variety of factors. This criteria includes but is not limited to height, shoe size, butt size and whether the man is gay or straight.
