[Draw 4!] Gameloft Releases Uno & Friends To The Play Store

I have many fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table with my family and playing Uno as a child. The thrill of getting down to one or two cards, hoping that no one throws down a Reverse, Draw Four, or changes the color is still one that I readily recall (and miss). Alas, life goes on, people get older and move away, and before you know it, those simple games of Uno are nothing but a memory of something that you had no idea you'd miss so much.

Real Racing 3 Updated With New Lexus And Dodge Cars, Dubai Autodrome Track, And 50+ Events

Electronic Arts' mobile racing magnum opus has been downloaded more than ten million times worldwide on Android alone, and it doesn't look like they're ready to stop adding content any time soon. The latest update to Real Racing 3 is a doozie, adding a new manufacturer and cars, a brand new racing venue, and more than 50 challenges and events for the dedicated virtual driver. The game is free and so is the update, though you'll still have to put up with the annoying time-based in-app purchase system.

Word Lens Updated To Version 2.1 With Portuguese Translations And Built-In Screenshots

Word Lens is the kind of app that might not get daily use, but when you do fire it up, it can save your bacon with fast offline translations. This is not just any translation app, though. Word Lens uses your device's camera to overlay the text translation using optical character recognition. Well, this app just got a nice little update to version 2.1 with some new features.

Google Calendar App Update Brings Color Customization Options, New Event Creation UI

The Google Calendar Android app received an update this afternoon, introducing a brand-new interface for certain steps during event creation, as well as the option to custom color-code days / your entire calendar. The new interfaces for these features are actually quite pretty, focusing on a circle-based design aesthetic that is more reminiscent of the Android 4.2 clock app in some ways.

These aren't actually huge features in terms of functionality, but they should definitely give you an idea where the Calendar app is headed in future iterations.

Google Play Music Update v5.0.1041J Introduces Features That Were Surprisingly Absent

When Google unveiled Google Play Music All Access earlier this month, they introduced the option to supplement our existing music collections with the millions of songs available through their service. What they didn't tell us was that those songs weren't as easy to remove from our libraries as they were to add. Sure, the web interface made doing so simple enough, but that isn't much use when a particularly jarring track makes itself known during the commute to work.

Download: Latest Google Play Store 4.1.10 With Location Bug Fixes

A new update to the Google Play Store app with version 4.1.10 is rolling out following the big 4.1.6 refresh from two weeks ago, just before I/O. As far as I can tell from a quick teardown and playing around, this is a minor update. All the important changes happened in the previous release, so 4.1.10 is likely a bug fixer. That said, if you see something I missed, please drop a line in the comments.

Google Unveils Brand-New Gmail Inbox Experience, New Android App Coming 'In The Next Few Weeks'

Google has finally unveiled a long-awaited overhaul to its Gmail app for Android, in conjunction with an all-new inbox experience that marks the single biggest revamp of the web mail service in years. We predicted this update would be announced today earlier in the week.

The new Gmail inbox is centered around tabs. Yup, tabs. The idea is that you have up to five sub-inboxes (any of them can be disabled) to organize your email, but that Gmail does the hard work of sorting everything out for you.

We've looked at Moborobo and all it has to offer once before, but the team has been hard at work bringing new features and tools to the already-useful application.
