DotEmu's latest Android port comes to us fresh from the 1990s and goes by the name of Little Big Adventure. It's an action-adventure game set in a previously common isometric perspective, and while those faux-3D visuals have lost some of their luster over the years, the nostalgia hasn't. Whether you've played this game on a PC or PlayStation before, this Android port is ready to suck you in.
Little Big Adventure welcomes you to the world of Twinsen, where its engaging characters and memorable storyline hope to draw you in, while its challenging puzzles and numerous secrets prevent you from heading out.
It's easy to forget that Amazon has cloud storage products on Android now that Google has started pushing the envelope with Drive and Play Music.

Cerberus Anti-Theft is the type of app that users install for peace of mind. The service offers the ability to track a device's location, record audio through its microphone, lock it, or wipe it remotely in the chance that it falls into the wrong hands.

The wait is finally over as LastPass for Android has been updated to enable automatic fill-in for apps and Chrome.
LastPass blocks screenshots within the app, thus the photos
Like PasswordBox, LastPass is using the Accessibility Services API in Android to enable automatic fill-in.

Consider this new app that item that someone placed on store shelves before it was time to begin selling the product. You can look at it all you want, but until that launch date comes, forget about it. In this case, HTC has released a Zoe app into the Play Store, but it doesn't plan to activate it until this summer.

Always forgetting your phone? Well, you should probably pay more attention. Failing that, maybe get one of those Bluetooth tethers that can warn you when you're about to leave the phone behind.
