How hard can it be to draw symbols on a screen? That doesn't sound like a very challenging game. Oh, but it is in the case of Impossible Draw. This game invites you to take a trip down an endless glowing tunnel full of symbols to match. Fail to mimic the signs before you, and its game over.
Your goal is to clear each barrier on your way down the tunnel by drawing the symbol on the screen. Read More
DISH broadcasts TV channels to well over ten million customers, and as it turns out, a good number of them have installed the company's Android app. The software, known as DISH Anywhere, has now reached over five million installs in the Play Store. While this doesn't mean that many people are using the app (since re-installs count separately), the real number probably isn't too far off.
The latest version of DISH Anywhere contains a new sports section that keeps up with various leagues. Read More
Update: India isn't the only country invited to the party. In a blog post, Google has announced that offline viewing is now available in Indonesia and the Philippines as well.
While hyping up the Android One initiative a couple months ago, Google revealed that it would bring the ability to save YouTube clips for offline viewing to India. The feature is now going live. Users throughout the country are noticing the option to save clips for later use. Read More
HTC Gallery, the stock photo app for the OEM's devices, received a fairly significant update today. It now supports tagging photos, has a "Face Fusion" photo editing tool, a new timeline layout for browsing photos, and has laid the groundwork for cloud integration. And while you can only download on HTC devices from the Play Store, our APK download should work on most devices that are running KitKat or newer. Read More
Update: Game of Thrones is now on the Amazon Appstore for the same $5 price as the Play Store version. That's handy for Amazon Kindle Fire and Fire TV users... and only those users, since it seems to be incompatible with all standard Android devices. At least you can use those saved-up Amazon coins for the purchase. The game isn't compatible with the Fire TV Stick, probably because of its somewhat low-power hardware. Read More
The weather hasn't been particularly welcoming for the last few weeks, and it sounds like it's going to get worse. Even if the rain is falling, it doesn't mean there's an excuse to become a couch potato; the latest update to Google Fit can keep everybody in shape with a boatload of new activities to cover both indoor and outdoor workouts. There is also a big improvement to data collection with Android Wear that may significantly increase the accuracy of the step counter. Read More
There was a time, a few months ago, when I would check Kickstarter and Indiegogo every couple of days for new projects. I was fascinated by the ingenuity of entrepreneurs and creators and I wanted to keep an eye on all the new ideas that were just ripe for production. I haven't lost that interest, but after investing in dozens of crowd-funded projects — most of which resulted in really great products that I use and love, thankfully — I'm a bit less obsessed and more selective in my choices.

At long last, Chromecast has a functional guest mode. While it presumably has something to do with the update to the Chromecast app that rolled out earlier Wednesday, the change did not appear immediately afterwards. Google apparently flipped a switch on the server side, and suddenly anyone with an up-to-date app can cast to a TV without being on the same Wi-Fi network. We've been waiting for this feature to roll out since it was announced way back in June at Google I/O. Read More
It's Update Wednesday again, and Google is firing on all cylinders. We've seen updates for both Android Wear and the companion app, Chromecast, Cardboard (who saw that coming?), and many more. Google Wallet also found its way onto the list with a few changes to its organization and styling. It started rolling out today, but we've got the latest version ready to download right now.
A post on Google+ earlier today calls out the most significant change for this version, which brings together gift cards, loyalty programs, and offers into a single link on the navigation drawer. Read More
There's a new 2D fighter available for Android, and it stars iconic Marvel characters! Now settle down, it's not Marvel Versus Capcom. Nope, this is a new property licensed by Marvel and developed by Kabam, which specializes in that sort of thing. Formerly a browser game, Contest of Champions has an impressive setup for a mobile fighter, with tap and swipe-based gameplay replacing the somewhat impractical on-screen buttons. But once you master the innovative controls, you'll find yourself in familiar freemium territory. Read More
