Users of Call of Duty ELITE have been waiting, and the moment is finally here: the Elite app just landed in the Android Market. The app allows you to monitor multiplayer progress with in-depth stat analysis, change your methods and plan new strategies based on recent gameplay performance, and incorporate edits into your loadouts directly from your Android device.

This app requires Call of Duty ELITE registration.

With the ability dive deep into your performance from recent matches, you can see exactly where you come up strong, as well as where you need to improve.

All-around awesome guy Andrew Neal has released the result of his project in recent months: a new music app that will be coming soon to CyanogenMod 9. The good news is that you can download it now, before it's merged, and install it on your device. The (pretty major) bad news: it's only available for phones running Ice Cream Sandwich. So unless you've got a Galaxy Nexus, ICS-running Nexus S, or any phone rocking CM9, you're pretty much S.O.L.

Hulu-Plus-Android-300x209

Quite a few of us were overly excited when Hulu Plus landed in the Android Market last year, only to be crushed when we realized only a few select devices were compatible. While Hulu has been bringing support to more devices since the release, it's just moving entirely too slow. Many of us are blue in the face from holding our breath while waiting for support, and frankly, I gave up the wait a long time ago.

It has been a few months since we last took a look in the Android Market for a new set of must-have root apps, and a lot of worthy entries have since entered the arena.

They battled it out in fight to the death, and the eight victors now stand before you, offering their unparalleled services at your disposal.

Okay, so maybe it didn't play out quite so dramatically, but the point remains the same: we have eight new apps that every rooted user should know about.

Much to the delight of TV junkies everywhere, the official NBC app just landed in the Android Market. The app lets you keep up with all the happenings of your favorite shows, check out video highlights, play games, search content across the entire NBC network, and customize the feed to display only the information you want to see. Unfortunately, you can't watch full episodes from within the app (yet), but that feature is "coming soon."

Right around the end of last month, we found a new social game by Disney, and to be completely honest, I didn't think it would be that spectacular. This game, of course, is Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas. Not only is it extremely popular, but it is also oddly addictive. Something about games like this really draw people in and keeps them coming back for more.

First Things First

First off, it should be noted that Master of the Seas is more closely related to the social games you'd find on Facebook than anything else.

For some gamers, a savegame file can be an indispensable resource, allowing the user to skip past a frustrating boss battle or jump over a brain-busting puzzle.

Bringing that concept to your Android device, Made in Brooklyn has introduced Game On, an app that allows users to share progress in popular games like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and over 60 others.

The first thing to know about Game On is that it's still in its beta stage, meaning some users may experience instability or other issues.

With just weeks remaining until Super Bowl XLVI, EA decided to bring out the head coach in all of us by dropping the price of Madden NFL 12 in the Android Market to just $0.99 for a "limited time."

The game is sure to please even the most hardcore of football fans, offering features like sharp, realistic gameplay and clean graphics; a full roster of NFL teams to choose from, and multiple modes of gameplay.

If you haven't notice, the Google Search app for Android received an update a little bit ago. This update is for users running Android 2.2 or 2.3 and brings some UI and performance enhancements. Once updated, this is what you'll see:

  • New color scheme and simplified UI
  • Faster, more responsive searches
  • Enhanced suggestions and query editing
  • Better localized suggestions and search results for more countries
  • Long press to remove history items

You can also tap that little arrow to the right of a search suggestion to add it to your search term before searching, making the whole process a little faster.

maps

Shortly after Thanksgiving last year, Google updated its Maps application, bumping its version number up to 6.0 and adding, most notably, indoor mapping. At the time it was presumed that the feature would be most useful for navigating places like major malls, airports, and similar metropolitan areas; however, Google just added a new way to use indoor mapping: finding your way around the most important tech show of the year – CES!
