Android has had some powerful to-do lists dating all the way back to Cupcake, but few are quite as nice-looking as 2Do, a recent entry (although Astrid's new design might be a solid contender). The $7 to-do list (yes, you read that right) does it's best to make itself worth the money. Tabbed calendars, the ability to attach photos, starred tasks, and a selection of themes make it one of the nicer to-do lists we've used.
Some of you out there may remember Another World, a cult classic video game that's seen life on a number of platforms since its 1991 debut. Well, the minds at DotEmu have brought Another World back again, this time to Android, and with HD graphics.
For those who aren't familiar with Another World, the game follows the story of Lester Knight Chaykin, a physicist who finds himself on a strange alien planet after a bolt of lightning hits his lab during a particle collision.
Minibash, a 2D fighter that originally sprang forth from the Toribash community as a flash and iPhone game, recently hit version 1.0 for Android thanks to Nabi Studios. The game is a brilliantly simple 2D turn-based fighting game, in which players train, morph, and fight their respective characters - kicking, punching, and decapitating other players to progress through tournaments, or practicing in single-player challenges.
One of the great things about Minibash, besides its over-the-top blood-gushing art style and effortless online play integration, is that players can customize their fighters, selecting hair styles, body colors, and even blood colors, on top of beefing up the characters by adding or removing mass from the fighter's fists, arms, legs, feet, or joints.
Despite what many people think, Google Docs is not the only online-based office suite. In fact, some may say that a few of the others - like Zoho Office, for example - are even more full-featured than GDocs.
If you've been thinking about leaving El Goog behind and jumping over to Zoho's house, but the lack of an Android app has been the deciding factor that kept you from making the leap, we have good news: ZOHO Docs is finally available on Android.
You might not have heard about Card Case. It's not the most popular of Square's innovative services, but it's worth just as much attention for the average consumer. Now that it's getting a facelift, it's a good time to revisit the concept. Pay With Square (as it's now known) is an app that allows you to create and maintain tabs at local businesses by simply giving the retailer your name.
To answer your first question, no there's not a lot of places that support this payment method just yet.
If you were on the fence about whether to pick up the Humble Bundle For Android 2, this should help sway you one way or the other: the bundle creators have added a new game, Snuggle Truck, to the mix. This game puts you in the driver's seat of a truck filled with poorly-secured stuffed animals. The objective is to take what is apparently the least safe route possible to deliver these stuffed animals to their destination without losing too many.
In the increasingly crowded market for Twitter clients on Android, another big player is about to jump into the fray - Carbon. You may know Carbon from its days on WebOS, but now that HP's mobile operating system is little more than an open source zombie, Carbon's developers are looking for a new (and more profitable) home.
While the app is already available on Windows Phone 7, that version is styled quite differently from the upcoming Android version, shown in the video below.
In the never-ending move to digitize and mobilize your entire world, some areas (like banking) are slower than others (like email). When the old guard does update, though, usually we get something pretty cool. Rite Aid is the latest entry to join in the mobile world and it's bringing with it yet another piece of the future: scanning pill bottles to refill your prescriptions.
It's not the first app to implement this kind of feature, but it's always welcome to see more options.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon, and you can find the tablet app roundup here.
