With the 2012 U.S. Open right around the corner - things get under way tomorrow - The United States Golf Association has released an official Android app to allow fans to follow the action on the go right from their phones.

The app is full of information for users to sink their teeth into, from full course details and information about each hole to biographies for each player competing.

Although the application is available to everyone, live video functionality is only available to view within the United States.

If you're fortunate enough to have Ice Cream Sandwich on your smartphone (either officially or unofficially), then you already know that the stock launcher is a huge improvement over previous versions of Android. However, it's not perfect.

Enter my personal favorite third-party launcher for ICS devices: Nova. This isn't the first time that we've mentioned Nova Launcher on AP, but it just received an update that definitely brings some note-worthy enhancements to an already-great application.

There aren't enough 8-bit adventure games in the world. This is just one of those facts of life you learn to deal with growing up. Thankfully, there are still a few devotees to the genre, like Nostatic Software. The developer has released a delightfully colorful 8-bit adventure game about a young girl with the world's most sensitive ears who just wants everyone in the house to be quiet for a bit so she can go to sleep.

Anyone who knows me (or has read any article where I mention music) is probably aware of my music preference: I'm all about rock and metal. Thus, when Rock Radio from AudioAddict hit the Play Store, I knew I had to check it out. And I wasn't disappointed.

For starters, Rock Radio offers 22 channels that cover the gamut of basically anything a rock or metal fan could want - all for free.

Over a year ago, Adult Swim released their first Android game, Robot Unicorn Attack. Now they're back with another ridiculous(ly awesome?) game called Monsters Ate My Condo. Unfortunately there's no video footage of the gameplay, but I think the Play Store banner probably sums it up well:

The core gameplay is simple and nothing especially new: swipe the floors around to match the colors. It's the premise that kicks things up a notch:

Adult Swim Games and PikPok present all-new monster puzzle action!!

EA has a tried-and-true formula for the Need For Speed (NFS) series: fast cars, good graphics, a cheesy story, and some good old arcade-style racing. Thus it's no surprise that the latest NFS title, Most Wanted (a follow up to the 2008 original) features just that - and as always, it looks like a properly good time:

The game will be coming to all the major platforms - Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, PC, iOS, and Android - so it's unclear how much the press release and trailer pertain to Android.

In an e-mail to its customers today, the team at TekTrak (an app we reviewed back in August) officially announced that the service has shut down and that users will no longer be able to utilize its features. In the heartfelt message the team explains that, as with many startup ventures, it has come time for the service to shutter its windows and call it quits.

TekTrak's official website has also been updated to reflect the end of the service.

Facebook already knows quite a lot about you and your friends, so why not use all that data to help find the best apps? This is exactly what Facebook is looking to do with its new App Center. Don't fret, though. This isn't yet another place for developers to upload and manage their apps. This is more of an online catalog infused with social smarts.

Facebook says the service will launch right now with over 500 apps, but didn't specify what the split would be between iOS and Android.

While after a discussion we at Android Police were unable to determine exactly why Evernote couldn't implement the functionality of its newest Android app, Food, into the existing Evernote app, we were able to settle on one thing: people take too many pictures of the things they eat. Evernote Food wants you to do this more, though, and has a veritable cornucopia of tools at your disposal to make you the ultimate delicacy documentarian.

Splashtop makes some great remote desktop software. I like Splashtop. So please friends, readers, and developers over at Splashtop, keep in mind my love for the company as a whole when I say the following sentence: Charging users $25 to try out Windows 8 on an Android tablet is an absurd, opportunistic, rip off of an idea. Most disappointingly, it will work for a small minority of users. And their money spends just the same as any other.
