Sometimes, a game comes along that is so bizarre, so weird, so completely out there that it's difficult to describe just how strange it is. This isn't one of them. In this game, a unicorn teaches you how to use farts to kill zombies. Duh. Of course some walkers only react to certain types of flatulence. Everyone knows this. That's why we have unicorn trainers.

The gameplay is very similar to the Plants Vs.

I'm not sure why in God's name a thief would want to steal apples from a helpless old lady, but that's exactly what's going on in Mediocre's new game Granny Smith. Not one to let the bad guy win, though, the old bat throws on her skates and goes after the madman. Those are some pretty important apples.

As made clear from the gameplay trailer, this is a physics based racer and appears to use a similar control method to Mediocre's other game, Puddle.

Update: Not only does the update address the reboot issues, but it also brings about a very useful new feature: cycling directions for 10 different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK)! This includes full turn-by-turn, voice-guidance in Maps Navigation for all 12 supported countries (all previously mentioned, plus the U.S. and Canada), as well. Getting around on your bike has never been easier!

Facedroid, Platinum Apps' tablet-centric Facebook client, got a major update today, bringing the app up to version 2.0.

For those who aren't familiar, Facedroid, which was released back in December of 2011, is a powerful Facebook client that looks to replace – and improve upon – Facebook's own mobile experience. The app does everything you'd expect and more, allowing for quick browsing, sharing, and updating, and its 2.0 update brings even more functionality, along with a guidelines-inspired redesign.

As a long time Android user, ASTRO is one of those apps that has been on nearly every device I own/have owned. I've seen it change and progress over the years, and to this day it remains one of my favorite file managers.

And it just got even better on Jelly Bean devices.

The app received an update today that brings a beautiful new UI to Jelly Bean devices; don't worry, the ASTRO team will be bringing it to "other" devices shortly.

Over a year ago, Google removed the Grooveshark app from what was then the Android Market due to a violation of the terms of service. Of course, with a service like Grooveshark, being removed from the Play Store was just the first of its worries - the company has definitely seen its fair share of legal issues over the last several months. Still, after its departure from the Store, Grooveshark continued to offer the app free of charge through its website.

One of the worst phrases a human being can put together is "automatic video editor." The whole thing feels like it's set up for failure. Like "vasectomy in a box" or "snooki's pregnant." Add in "for Android" and, well, let's just say I've been burned before. So it came as an unbelievable shock when I tried out Magisto, which claims to be both of these things, and it was good.

Microsoft's competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive, SkyDrive, just got an official Android app. Surprisingly, it actually looks like it was designed for Android, though the Metro influence is hard to deny.

For the unaware, SkyDrive is Microsoft's take on cloud storage, though it goes a step further by integrating remote access and collaboration tools (similar to Google Drive). While SkyDrive is undoubtedly a powerful tool, the Android app only allows for a portion of the functionality of the desktop service.

Back in July, popular game developer Kairosoft released a new game called Oh! Edo Towns. Much to the surprise of Kairosoft-lovers, however, it was region locked to Japan.

But not anymore. Now, Oh! Edo Towns is available in the Play Store for all users.

Oh! Edo Towns keeps that familiar (and loved) Kairosoft style, but goes back in time to the Japan's Edo days. Build houses, castles, and all other sorts of old-school architecture, and place building side-by-side to create "combos." It's your town - build it how you see fit!

Several weeks ago, Dropbox suffered a small security breach that gave wrong-doers access to a few unlucky users' email addresses. On the good side, it also brought the vulnerability to the Dropbox staff's attention. Since then, they've been working hard to beef up security, and today, they introduced two-step verification.

Much like Google's two-factor authentication, once enabled this requires you to login using two different sets of verification: your password and a unique identifier sent in either a text message or generated locally on the device using the authenticator app (which you have the option to get via QR during the set up process).
