Yelp v5.9 For Android Update Brings Messaging Feature To Mobile App

Yelp's Android app was updated to version 5.9 this afternoon, adding an apparently much-requested feature: messaging support. The Yelp app did not previously allow users to send one another messages, but this has now been remedied. Hooray! I guess.

Otherwise, there's nothing going on here - probably a few bug fixes, maybe some performance tweaks. Oh, and a Mitch Hedberg quote, a la Yelp's typically enjoyable changelogs: "I order the club sandwich all the time.

[New Game] Zen Studios Launches CastleStorm: Free To Siege Into The Play Store, Doesn't Cause Structural Damage

Zen Studios' CastleStorm captured fans when it hit consoles last year, and now it's ready to try its hand with mobile gamers.

Rovio LVL11's Upcoming Game RETRY May Just Put Flappy Bird To Shame With Even More Infuriating Gameplay

Flappy Bird is a game with only a single button. Players tap their fingers against the screen repetitively to get this plump little bird to flap its wings fast enough to resist the gravity of whatever massive planet it must live on, but not so fast quickly that it flies up into pipes hanging from the ceiling for who knows why. The game takes seconds to learn, and it still manages to be frustrating as $%&#.

[APK Download] Google Wallet Updated To v2.0-R163-v17, Removes Explore Offers, Adds Shipping Notifications, Minor UI Reorg

Google Wallet received a relatively minor update today, too (along with Camera), making a few subtle changes to the UI and a couple of feature tweaks. Most notable, perhaps, is that the explore offers feature has been removed altogether (offers live in Maps now, apparently).

[New Game] Rovio Stars' Word Monsters Is A Social Word Game In Need Of Friends

We all remember Tiny Thief, but let's set those memories aside for a moment. Rovio Stars is back with another Android title. Word Monsters is a puzzle game that's so social, it requires players to sign in using Google or Facebook immediately after completing the initial tutorial. The game itself is an adorable take on word search. Look for words on-screen and swipe them to get points. Doing so will cause them to disappear, sometimes removing letters needed for future words and adding some degree of strategy to the experience.

Google's Camera app received a minor update today, adding back the ability to snap photos while recording video. The feature was not present in the original release of the Google Camera app.

Otherwise, we're not seeing many changes in today's up to version 2.1.042, though with something like a camera app many of the appreciable changes are often under the hood, not user-facing. Let us know if you see anything, though!

Portal For Nvidia Shield Review: This Was A Triumph
