Brazilian Court Orders Google To Remove 'Secret' App From The Play Store And Remotely Wipe It From Phones

Secret is a social networking app that allows users to share pictures and text anonymously. It's become the hot new thing in some circles, but not everyone is happy about it. A court case in Brazil has resulted in Judge Paulo Cesar de Carvalho issuing a preliminary injunction requiring Google to remove the app from the Play Store and remotely delete it from users' devices. Apple was hit with the same ruling.

Dropbox's Carousel App Gets Ability To Hide/Delete Photos, Makes Auto-Upload Optional, Fixes Android L Preview Compatibility, And More

I happen to like Dropbox's Carousel app, but the inability to control what photos appeared in my photo collection was a deal-breaker right from the beginning. So I'm happy to see that the latest release adds the option to hide or delete photos. It also makes it pretty easy to restore hidden images later on.

Dropbox wants peoples to automatically upload photos to their servers, so it bundled this feature in with Carousel, and users didn't have a say in whether they wanted to use it.

Cartoon Network Releases Duo Of New Adventure Time Games: Rock Bandits And Fionna Fights

If I had to guess which animated show the mobile game developers at Cartoon Network enjoy most, I'd throw my money behind Adventure Time (followed closely by Regular Show, which was tied before today). The company has already released no less than four games based on the series into the Play Store, and now it's rewarding fans with two more: Rock Bandits and Fionna Fights.

The Facebook App Has Started Opening Web Links With A Built-In Browser For Some Users

It looks like Facebook is again testing a new bit of functionality in its Android app with a subset of users. After the most recent update, people are suddenly seeing a built-in browser that loads timeline links rather than booting you out to a full browser. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing depends heavily on how you feel about the Facebook app in general.

AgileBits Decides On A Freemium Pricing Model For 1Password, Introduces It In 4.1 Update

When a vastly updated 1Password app hit the Play Store earlier this summer, developer AgileBits still wasn't sure on how it was going to price its revamped product. At the time, the app was free to use for anyone who wanted to put it through its paces, but the company planned to eventually tuck most of the features into a premium version. Now the team has followed through and settled on a freemium pricing model, which it is introducing with the app's 4.1 update.

Google Shopping Express App Updated To Version 2.0, Gets A Few Design Tweaks, Notifications

The Google Shopping Express app was updated to v2.0 yesterday, though the changes to the app aren't quite what you'd expect for a leading digit bump. The single greatest change to the app would seem to be the addition of notifications, which now allow you to be notified about delivery information for your orders, a key feature the service had been lacking until now.

A new quick-add-to-cart button appears on all product cards now, and the filter UI has received a significant overhaul, now allowing you to filter products not just by store, category, and price, but by brand, type (if applicable), and special features like gluten-free, organic, and others.

Microsoft Brings OneNote Handwriting Support Out Of Beta, Introduces New UI Optimized For Tablets

For a while now Microsoft developers have been working on adding handwriting support to the Android app. The feature, which appeared in the newly released beta app last month, lets users add notes in a way that is sometimes more convenient or useful than typing. Writers can use their fingertips or a stylus and then tweak their notes with a number of options. The feature is particularly useful for scribbling thoughts in the margins of a scanned document.

Amazing Brick Is Like Flappy Bird With More Skillful Tapping And Fewer Birds

Remember the obnoxious gameplay in Flappy Bird that got everyone so upset? Amazing Brick is a little like that, but the gameplay mechanics are slightly more fleshed out. It does look like another Flappy Bird clone (rotated 90 degrees), but there's more to it.

The Incredibly Bizarre Game MOUNTAIN Has Arrived On Android

As the game says – you are mountain, you are god. However, that's pretty much all it says. MOUNTAIN is a procedurally generated ambient game where you interact with a floating mountain hanging in space. While observing, you'll find objects which can be collected and organized, but I'm not sure why.
