I have a confession to make: I don't use ringtones. Most of the time, my phone is on vibrate, and when it's not, I insist that my ringtones actually ring. However, if I were to use custom ringtones, Ringtonium is the app I'd use to set them up. This app is beautiful. In a way that few apps are. The interface is brilliantly easy to use and accessible to even the most tech illiterate users.
Android-using Olympics fans now have another reason to be proud of their platform - back in May, the London 2012 Join In App was released, and now, the same developer has published the London 2012 Results App.
As its name suggests, this new creation features results from all sorts of sports, including both the Olympic and Paralympic varieties. Additionally, the app will allow you to keep up on the latest news, live schedules, and athlete profiles from the games once they begin.
You may remember a wonderful little free physics game called Rocket Bunnies from a while back. Similarly, there was a cool RPG known as Heroes Call that came out not too long ago. The developer behind both these games is Defiant Development, and now they've brought the popular iOS game Ski Safari to Android.
In Ski Safari, you play the roll of Sven, who finds himself in the unenviable position of skiing down a hillside to keep ahead of an avalanche.
Hey guys! It's a game that's not tower defense or puzzle-themed! Draw Race 2 is a new take on the racing game genre. Whereas most racing games on mobile devices use your accelerometer for steering, Draw Race 2 opts for a top-down view, tracing the race track to direct your vehicle. It's certainly a novel approach to the problem of racing controls on mobile devices.
The apparent second version of this game includes tons of challenges and skill games to test your ability to run your finger around your screen.
This edition focuses only on new tablet apps or ones that added tablet support. Regular apps and games are coming soon.
What would be another month without another quick roundup of our top five favorite apps?

I have personally been waiting for Dead Trigger to land in the Play Store since it was first announced at the beginning of June. It was originally supposed to be out yesterday, but due to some last minute bug fixes and additional enhancements, Madfinger pushed the release to today. Now, the wait is over: Dead Trigger is now available in the Play Store!
Perhaps the most popular (and complete) free repair manual in existence, iFixit, launched an official app for Android recently, bringing detailed step-by-step repair instructions and (of course) the saucy teardown images we've come to know and love from the service's online counterpart to your Android devices.
For those who don't know, iFixit provides users with incredibly detailed repair guides for a huge variety of things from laptops to mobile devices, game consoles, and even cars, including great imagery and nice explanations for why hardware is the way it is.
Costco, promising to take customers "beyond the warehouse walls with the ease of [their] smartphone," released an official Costco Wholesale app to the Play Store recently.
The app, created by one of the most popular (and largest) wholesalers in America, allows users to do much of what they could do in a physical Costco location, or shopping online – users can shop Costco.com's "unique, expanded" collection, locate the nearest Costco location, grab online and in-store coupons, refill prescriptions, read "The Costco Connection," choose business or home delivery options, and take note of what you need to buy with a handy built-in notepad.
