While it's not exactly clear how much use it'll get, Google just launched a full-featured mobile web version of the Play Store. It's got everything - including devices. That means you can finally order a Nexus on your Nexus in a Nexus-friendly web page layout. Xzibit is going to be stoked.
The design is actually pretty nice, too. It's very clean, and it even has, you guessed it, a hamburger menu! Read More
It's time once again to venture into the wide world of apps in search of deals on cool stuff. We wouldn't want you to overpay. Why? Because we care deeply about each and every one of you. Especially you. Yes, you.
Yoel Kaseb, who last month posted a series of screenshots purporting to show a revamped Google+ interface (which ended up being proven mostly accurate in a recent update), is back again, this time posting photos of what is allegedly a new Gmail interface.
Before we discuss, let's look at the photos. For the sake of clarity, I've used the photos to quickly create a clearer, full-res mockup of the interface shown. Read More
Human capacity for speech seems infinite, but after writing a steady stream of text messages, emails, and posts over the years, things start to get repetitive. PhraseExpress has spared Windows users sentences, paragraphs, and pages worth of mundane conversation since its release, and now the software is ready to do the same for Android.
The Autotext PhraseExpress Android app has the ability to save any number of text snippets (though the free version is limited to 25), organizing them into a folder hierarchy similar to bookmarks. Read More
Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season One is a great game. It's a decision-based game where the choices you make during the zombie apocalypse affect what happens next. If you haven't played it, I highly recommend it.
If you have played it, however, good news! Season Two is out now for Android...kind of. It's actually exclusive to the Amazon Appstore and the Kindle Fire HDX/Fire TV for now, just like Season One was. Read More
Ubisoft's Trials series has been hitting the track for years now, challenging players to perform fantastical tricks atop their motorbikes while hurtling through the air. The franchise has typically stuck to PCs as Java and flash games, but later versions have made the jump to consoles. Now the first mobile release has exited limited geo beta and is now available for all.
The game's challenge derives from its off the wall physics-based tracks, as navigating them alone can be difficult enough without the pressure of building up high scores. Read More
These nuns have been attacking unholy forces on countless mobile devices, but just who are the women underneath those veils? Frima Studios' latest game dives into the history behind Yuki, a silent warrior driven by her need to protect all of the orphans stolen from her village. Using stealth, weapons, and "nun-jutsu," she's ready to wage war against the minions of evil.

Amazon is really pushing its Android Appstore now that the Fire TV is a thing. Even if you don't have a Fire TV, you can get plenty of free Amazon Coins from downloading free apps, plus extra Coins when you buy things. The Plex app is usually $4.99 in Google Play and Amazon, but it's down to $0.99 (or 99 Coins) right now.
In what is Motorola's dullest release since Contextual Services hit the Play Store, Moto has opened up Modality Services to receive future updates via Google Play as well. This software helps a phone respond appropriately to motion and position, enabling it to know when it's coming out of a pocket or whether it's sitting face down on a desk. You know, the good stuff that made the Moto X so interesting in the first place. Read More
You usually have to mess around with flashing ROMs to enjoy the features those talented developers build for Android. In the case of Paranoid Android's new Peek feature, you can get it in app form on any KitKat device courtesy of Francisco Franco (of franco.Kernel fame) and original Peek developer Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo. Update: The app was down for a bit today for a bug fix. It has been restored now. Read More
