Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a Zombie-themed Trials clone, an interesting take on the marble maze, and a good-looking room escape puzzler.

Over the past week, Google's exposed a handful of new and useful voice-activated features on the Now app for Android. Whether it be figuring out information about your booked car rentals, setting reminders, or finally handling timer queries properly, Google really seems to want you to talk to your phone more. Our question today, though, is just how much do you talk to your phone or tablet?

Now, this a kind of hard question to answer scientifically, I know.

Listen, EA, you're one of the biggest video game publishers in the world. It's not my place to tell you what to do, and far be it from me to say that you have to support Android's standard online and social gaming featureset in your games. But it would probably be a good idea. Case in point: the over-the-top basketball game NBA Jam. The title just got updated with Google Play Games support.

It's a sad day for the 400,000+ active users of note taking service Springpad. After six years of battling the Evernote behemoth, Springpad is calling it quits on June 25th. The website, apps, and sync features will go offline at that time, but the team is working to help you get your data out.

While it's not exactly clear how much use it'll get, Google just launched a full-featured mobile web version of the Play Store. It's got everything - including devices. That means you can finally order a Nexus on your Nexus in a Nexus-friendly web page layout. Xzibit is going to be stoked.

The design is actually pretty nice, too. It's very clean, and it even has, you guessed it, a hamburger menu!

Yoel Kaseb, who last month posted a series of screenshots purporting to show a revamped Google+ interface (which ended up being proven mostly accurate in a recent update), is back again, this time posting photos of what is allegedly a new Gmail interface.

Before we discuss, let's look at the photos. For the sake of clarity, I've used the photos to quickly create a clearer, full-res mockup of the interface shown.

PhraseExpress-Thumb

Human capacity for speech seems infinite, but after writing a steady stream of text messages, emails, and posts over the years, things start to get repetitive. PhraseExpress has spared Windows users sentences, paragraphs, and pages worth of mundane conversation since its release, and now the software is ready to do the same for Android.

The Autotext PhraseExpress Android app has the ability to save any number of text snippets (though the free version is limited to 25), organizing them into a folder hierarchy similar to bookmarks.

Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season One is a great game. It's a decision-based game where the choices you make during the zombie apocalypse affect what happens next. If you haven't played it, I highly recommend it.

If you have played it, however, good news! Season Two is out now for Android...kind of. It's actually exclusive to the Amazon Appstore and the Kindle Fire HDX/Fire TV for now, just like Season One was.

Trials-Thumb

Ubisoft's Trials series has been hitting the track for years now, challenging players to perform fantastical tricks atop their motorbikes while hurtling through the air. The franchise has typically stuck to PCs as Java and flash games, but later versions have made the jump to consoles. Now the first mobile release has exited limited geo beta and is now available for all.

Trials

The game's challenge derives from its off the wall physics-based tracks, as navigating them alone can be difficult enough without the pressure of building up high scores.
