Turn Yourself Into A Flesh-Hungry Walker With AMC's New 'The Walking Dead Dead Yourself' App For Android [Update: More Countries]

Update 3/15/13: As of version 1.0.7, the application is now available in these additional locations: UK, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the Philippines, and South Africa.

Of all the shows that have ever been on TV in the history of time, I'm not afraid to admit that AMC's The Walking Dead is my absolute favorite. For those who may not be familiar with the show, it's the story of a group of survivors living in a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world. As you can imagine, life is rough on the group of protagonists, as they have to find food, shelter, and other necessities in order to survive, all while fighting off the undead, which sometimes show up in droves.

WhatsApp Messenger With New Holo-Style UI Out Of Beta, Now On The Play Store

The most popular standalone chat platform on Android, WhatsApp, has been updated with a whole new look - and it's holo-y. About a month ago, WhatsApp previewed its redesigned aesthetic in a beta release, and now those changes have made their way into the release client. While the changelog is pretty sparse on details ('update user interface to the latest android look and feel'), compared to the old version of the app, the visual differences should be fairly obvious.

There's also mention of three and five-year subscription discount options, should you plan your proprietary chat platform usage that far out, and support for Vietnamese.

Google Fiber App Hits The Play Store, Lets Kansas City Residents Use More Than The N7 To Control Their TV

Two things for Kansas City residents who have Google Fiber: one, I still hate you. Two, Google just released its Fiber app for more devices that the lone Nexus 7 you received as part of the Fiber package. You know, just in case you're tired of reaching for one of the best Android tablets on the market just to change your TV channels. It's a hard-knock life.

According to the Play Store listing, the app should work on any 4.1+ device, but Fiber's Google+ post tells a different story, stating that it requires 4.2. Hard to say, really – you'll just have to install it on a 4.1 device and see if it works.

Bladeslinger Review: More Than Just A Pretty Face

Bladeslinger is one of those games that makes a splash with impressive trailers and promises of console-level gaming, but how often have we been left heartbroken by similar titles? This game sets out to tell a story, so at least it has that going for it. William Glaston is just your average cowboy with a revolver-gun and robot arm, but things get weird when he returns to his home town of Hammer's Peak to find it overrun with monsters that used to be the townsfolk. The story unfolds as Glaston wanders the seedier parts of Hammer's Peak in search of his brother, and the cause of the corruption.

[New Game] The Conduit HD Comes To Tegra Devices, Hoping To Prove That Mobile FPS Games Can Compete with Consoles

Back in 2008, a little game called The Conduit landed on the Wii, and plenty of gamers held it as an example that the console's non-standard control system was up to the twitchy task of first-person shooter gameplay. The Conduit HD is now available for Android as well, hoping to prove not only that the platform is viable for high-end gaming, but that the hardware is also capable of replicating console visuals.

At the moment, the game is only available for Tegra 2 and 3 devices, and the free download requires a $4.99 in-app purchase (or two easy payments of $2.99!) to unlock the full game.

Well, That Was Fast: Google Has Pulled The Google Reader App From The Play Store

After announcing yesterday that Google Reader as a platform would be going the way of the dodo on July 1st, it appears Google has already started pulling the necessary plugs: the official Reader app has been removed from the Play Store. While you will still be able to see the Reader app on the Play Store if you've got it installed on one of your devices, open up an incognito window in Chrome, and you'll be directed to the generic 404 page when you attempt to load the URL.

A sad day for Reader fans, though there are plenty of alternatives (like Press, or our favorite: gReader) to the Reader app while the service as a whole is still functioning for the next few months.

[New Game] Heroes Of Destiny Looks To Be A Well-Made Action RPG By Glu Mobile... So Hide Your Wallet

Glu Mobile isn't exactly my favorite developer - their in-app purchase / free to play business model ensures that - but there's no denying they've got a lot of talent going into their games. Heroes of Destiny is their latest title on Android - an action RPG of the generic-fantasy-world variety. The visuals aren't spectacular, but they'll by no means disappoint your average mobile gamer, and since this is a Glu game, you can expect near-endless content to trudge through in an attempt to extract precious currency from your bank account.

Gameplay looks to be a rather conspicuous 3D take on the highly popular iOS and Android title Battleheart by Mika Mobile, a game which has since been abandoned on the Play Store.

If You're Still Using The Amazon Appstore, Osmos HD Is Free Today (Normally $2.99)

At this point, most of us here at AP have retired the Amazon Appstore. If you still use Amazon's Android app distribution software, though (read: anyone who owns a Kind Fire/HD), then today's free app of the day – Osmos HD – is actually worth grabbing.

1 2 3

For those who may not be familiar with the title, it's a quirky physics-based puzzler where you control simple one-celled organisms (called "motes") and absorb smaller organisms. It sounds simple, but it's actually quite challenging.

Osmos is actually a great, soothing time-waster, as the ambient environments and soundtrack easily invoke a zen-like state of relaxation.

[New Game] Noodlecake Releases Super Stickman Golf 2 - 20 Brand-New Levels, Online Multiplayer, And Lots More Content

A physics-based puzzler centered on a... golfing mechanic? I know, I know. Sounds boring. But Super Stickman Golf has proven to be one of Noodlecake Studios' most successful titles to date, with over a million installs from the Play Store.

Super Stickman takes the traditional golfing mechanic and turns it on its head with crazy course designs, in-shot power-ups, multiple balls, and in-game achievements to keep you going back for more.

This is a free-to-play title, so there are in-app purchases if you choose to use them, but they seem far from necessary to enjoy the game. Now, in online multiplayer, the story could change - we all know how Words With Friends got once Zynga put its money-grubbing hands all over it.
