Instagram is so yesterday's news. If you're a fan of pictures with a little more life and movement, the folks at Cinemagram might have just the thing for you. Currently available on iOS, Cinemagram lets you create a fascinating hybrid of still images and video as an animated GIF right on a phone. One user that was quite taken with what he saw reached out to the developer, and got some good news back: the Cinemagram team is actively working on an Android port.

XLR8

While owning an actual supercar can prove to be outrageously expensive, with $0.99 and your Android phone, you can get the next best thing.

Indeed, 2XL Games has just released what might be termed the most ingenious gimmick ever: XLR8 (pronounced “accelerate”), an app that makes smooth, supercar-esque engine noises that cover up the dusty old cough of your own machine’s engine.

Assuming your Android device has GPS (most do nowadays), you can simply plug it into your car’s stereo, just as you would if your intention were to listen to some music.

I know, I know, who wants to hear about yet another tower defense game? Actually, I do - I still find this genre to be one of the most enjoyable on a mobile device and pretty much the only one that can keep me interested for longer than a day (I've been playing Com2uS' Tower Defens: Lost Earth nonstop for the last few days). And you might too, when you see the video of Hexage's upcoming title, Radiant Defense.

Mobile gaming is really great. It's just that it can be such a solitary experience as you're hunched over your device, the light casting an unattractive pallor on your face. But don't worry; the classic Amiga shooter Battle Squadron ONE from Cope-Com just landed in the Google Play Store, and it aims to make your gaming sessions a more social experience.

In Battle Squadron ONE, two players can take the fight to enemy forces in a top-down scrolling shooter.

If you're into microblogging, quick posts, and tossing some images on the web double-fast, then you could use Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. If, however, you like to do all those things in once place and prefer a sort-of niche community in which to do it, then you should probably use Tumblr.

For the uninformed, Tumblr is basically a supercharged microblog that makes it really quick and easy to share content of all types, including quotes, images, links, audio, video, and simple text.

One of the most powerful tools in all of the modern desktop browsers is the ability to add extensions. Extensions allow the browser to do things that it can't do on its own - everything from simple tasks to advanced options. When it comes to desktop extensions, the limits are generally left up to the mind of the creator.

Up to this point, extensions haven't been all that widely adopted in the mobile world.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see How Do You Follow Android Police?

Pretty simple one this week - hopefully, one that requires little description. Which keyboard do you use on your phone? Stock - and if so, stock Android (either via the Play store or preinstalled) or stock manufacturer? Third-party - like SwiftKey or Swype? Or do you have a phone with a hardware keyboard?

Bomberman vs Zombies by Contlex Labs, which spent "24 weeks in the list of top 10 BlackBerry games," has come to Android, bringing endless zombies and explosions to the palm of your hand.

BvZ should look extremely familiar to fans of Bomberman, or those who remember the rendition we saw a few months ago for Android, but Contlex's creation offers clean, pleasing graphics which can be enjoyed on smartphones and tablets alike, and a somewhat unique gameplay dynamic.

The extremely popular photo-sharing app Instagram, just days after hitting the Play Store, has received another update, this time bringing some pretty awesome changes.

Perhaps the most significant change the app's update to version 1.0.3 brings is compatibility for tablets and Wi-Fi handsets, meaning users can now share photos from all their Android devices with ease.

Besides the added compatibility, Instagram's latest update allows users to install the app to their SD card, thereby freeing up a little internal storage.
