Like it or not, your credit score dominates all the financial details of your life. Most services that provide you access to these all-important values have a fee attached, but that's not the case with Credit Karma, which has just arrived on Android. You could be forgiven for being wary of an app that asks for so much personal information, but Credit Karma is the real deal and provides a killer service.
Video editors are pretty commonplace today on Android, though few of them are exactly pretty. And even fewer are as straightforward to use as they should be. Enter WeVideo. WeVideo is actually a web-based video editing and cloud storage service, but they've expanded their reach with an app for Android, now on the Play Store in a limited beta.
You'll have to be using either a Galaxy S III, Note, Note II, Galaxy Nexus, or Nexus 4 in order to use it for the time being, though that's a prerequisite many of you likely meet.
We love RSS. We also love DashClock. So when we heard about a new DC extension that marries the two, well, we had to check it out.
Appropriately named, DashClock RSS Viewer Extension brings your favorite newsfeed(s) to your lockscreen (or homescreen, if that's where you use DashClock) by displaying the five most recent topics. It actually couldn't be simpler.
The extension comes pre-loaded with several feeds from some of your favorite blogs (including AP, of course).
Samsung has been babbling about its Unicorn Apocalypse game for a while now. Turns out that it's not only a real thing, but it's actually in the Play Store. It also appears to be pretty crappy judging by the two-star rating. Ouch.
If you're not familiar with Unicorn Apocalypse, then you must've missed Samsung's campaign with famed director Tim Burton where the company teased it. Watch the videos above to get up to speed.
Update: One of our commenters, Dan, actually spoke to Amanita on Facebook, and they explained the whole situation. Tl;dr - the old Hothead version will receive updates. Here's the full answer, which confirms some of our suspicions about the falling out:
hi, we had to republished Machinarium for Android because the older version was published by Canadian publisher Hothead Games. the collaboration wasn't ideal so we agreed to end it and publish the game again ourselves.
Otterbox is known for making some of the most protective cases on the planet. The Defender Series, one of its most protective, is gearing up for a major upgrade: a built-in battery. Simply called the Defender Series with iON Intelligence, the case should effectively double the battery life of supported smartphones. Right out of the gate, it looks like the company plans on making it available for the iPhone and Galaxy S III, though hopefully cases for other handsets are in the works.
There's no denying the value in Google Music – it lets you store all of your tunes in the cloud and take them everywhere you go without using up precious free space on your device. The problem is, however, that you have to use Google's proprietary player to stream the music. If you prefer something like PowerAMP, Winamp, or one of the many other media players in the Play Store, you're simply out of luck.
It wouldn't be a new month without a roundup of the previous month's best Play Store offerings. Of course, we've already taken a look at the best new apps from February 2013, but games – as usual – were also well-represented by new entries last month.
Typically, we try to narrow down our list of the top new apps and games to five entries each month. This month, however, saw the debut of plenty of new games that are definitely worth taking a look at, and have included seven of the very best games no Android gamer should miss.
The Play Store has been off to a great start in 2013 – January saw the introduction of some brilliant apps like Carbon Backup and Pushbullet, and February followed up with some great entries of its own. From widgets to root apps to content creation tools, February had something for just about everyone. As always, we'll take a quick look at five of the very best apps we saw in the past month.
