Monument Valley 'Forgotten Shores' Update Comes To Amazon App Store, Google Play Update Coming Next Week

Just one day after its run as Free App of the Day on Amazon's Appstore, Monument Valley is getting its new levels - titled Forgotten Shores - today, again through Amazon.

The levels, which come via an in-app purchase of $1.99, will be exclusive to the Amazon Appstore until this Sunday, with the update coming to the Google Play Store after that.

For those who haven't played Monument Valley and have somehow managed to avoid hearing about or seeing it, the game is a gorgeous, beautifully-executed geometry puzzle in which you navigate a silent princess through numerous impossible architectural scenarios.

The "Forgotten Shores" expansion builds on the beauty and serenity of the original game with eight levels, almost doubling the total number of levels in the game.

Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta App Updated To Add RD Gateway Support So You Can Skip The Corporate VPN

Update: It appears RDGateway support is currently in the release client, so we're not sure what this beta update actually added.

Microsoft's RDP client for Android is a surprisingly robust application, and today the beta version just got a pretty significant new feature for corporate and enterprise users: Remote Desktop Gateway support.

RD Gateways are servers that allow remote desktop clients to start a remote desktop session from outside the corporate intranet via an SSL-encrypted port, meaning you don't have to use a workaround like a VPN connection. They're common enough in corporate and enterprise environments, so if you're curious, maybe ask your IT guy (assuming you aren't the IT guy).

Now we're seeing at least one byproduct of that arrangement. Google has released the Divide Productivity Preview into the Play Store, an app that can only be used as part of the Android IT Preview Program. The suite serves as a gateway to a company's existing corporate Exchange/ActiveSync or Notes-compatible infrastructure.

If you get your prescriptions filled at Target, the big-box store has just released an app on the Play Store to help you manage them much more easily. The Healthful (shudder) app lets you submit refill requests, transfer scrips to another store, and can even help you find a cheap generic for your prescribed medication. Oh, and it tracks your prescription fill status, too, so no more annoying SMSs or phone calls. Yay.

YouTube Music Key Is Rolling Out Now

We knew that YouTube Music Key would start rolling out this week, and it looks like it's in full force at this point. A bunch of us here at AP already have it, and from the look of our tip box, most of you do as well. If not, well, I'm sorry. Here's a quick look at what you're missing.

As expected, we've got offline playback (you can choose to save the videos in 360p or 720p), background playback, and ad-free music videos. If you have it on mobile, then it's also available on the web, so there's that, too.

At this time, it looks like the rollout is limited to Play Music All Access subscribers, especially considering it just seems to show up for users without any additional signup.

Pushbullet Update Brings Copy & Paste Feature To The Chrome And Firefox Extensions, A Few Other Enhancements

You guys love Pushbullet, right? If not, it's probably because you haven't used it. This is easily one of the most powerful utilities available on Android, and definitely one worth having installed. And as of today, it's getting even more powerful (or convenient, at least).

As you probably already know, the guys behind Pushbullet never sleep. I've asked them how they seem to gogogo all the time, but they're not giving up on any secrets. Bummer. Anyway, they brought universal copy & paste to the app a while back, but it had one quirk: it required the Windows app to be installed.

New SwiftKey Update Brings Significant Performance Improvements, Twelve New Languages

SwiftKey has been my go-to keyboard on every Android device I've owned for the last...long time. Google's stock keyboard keeps getting better and better, but it just can't seem to match what SK can do, and every time it gets close, the SwiftKey guys generally push an update that puts it back in the lead by a large margin.

Today's update, though, is something else altogether. This is probably the most significant update to SwiftKey in the last several months, possibly even longer. This update brings something SwiftKey has needed for a long time: faster load and quit times, quicker navigation between fields, and more responsive typing.
