[New App] Foodster Is A Gorgeous Recipe App With Food From The Best Chefs On The Web

If you're a bit of a foodie (I'll admit, I can be at times), finding recipes on the web from databases is often a... terrible experience. While some repositories like Epicurious do hold themselves to a higher standard, many big sites will put up 28 different recipes for the same meal, 26 of which are awful and tacky "tweaks" on classic dishes without any pictures at all. It's not fun to dig through that.

Cablevision Releases Optimum App For Controlling And Streaming TV, But Your Device Probably Isn't Compatible

Cablevision might not cover the largest geographic area, but it's actually the 8th largest cable company by number of subscribers. Those lucky enough to have Cablevision TV piped into their homes have a new app to play with today. The Optimum app lets you stream TV and control your DVR right from the device. Of course, you need a compatible phone and those are apparently hard to come by.

[New Game] Zynga Brings 'Family Friendly Weirdness' To The Play Store With Clay Jam

Partnered with Fat Pebble, Zynga officially launched Clay Jam for iOS and Android today, bringing to market a game made entirely of clay. Charged with the mission of saving the land of Clay Jam, players control a ball of clay called Fat Pebble as he rolls down hills collecting clay, avoiding obstacles, and maneuvering about using a "gouge control system."

Clay Jam, which has plenty of hills to roll down and unique hand-built monsters to encounter, is free to play, with optional in-app purchases to "save Clay Jam even sooner." The real story, though, is the impressive thoughtfulness and craftsmanship behind the game.

[New game] Physics Puzzler "Freeze!" Blends Striking Black And White Visuals With Mind-Bending Challenges

If you're a fan of physics-based titles, your options on pretty much any mobile platform aren't exactly limited. However, Freeze! by Frozen Gun Games definitely looks a little more interesting than your average title in the genre. Comprised mainly of tilt-based gameplay - though accomplished through touch instead of a gyroscope, thankfully - Freeze! is the compelling story of an ocular hero (no really, he's an eye) attempting to escape from an off-world prison.

Tip: Drive's Latest Update Adds Global 'Copy To Clipboard' Option In The Share Menu

When Google Drive was updated yesterday with the new native spreadsheet editor, all other aspects of the update were instantly less interesting. Now that the dust has settled and our excitement for the new editor has become more manageable, there's another nifty feature worth highlighting: the new "copy to clipboard" choice in the global share menu.

Now, when you choose to share something via the built-in option in any application, you will see an option for "copy to clipboard" - it was actually a little confusing where this new addition came from initially, but Ron notices every detail that exists in everything and immediately knew it was thanks to the Drive update.

[Deal Alert] Official 'Predators' Game For Android Only $0.99 (Down From $2.99)

A few weeks ago, I lamented on the fact that I can't have a pet Predator because he'd likely violently remove my throat for no good reason. I like my throat, so instead I've chosen to just play the Predator game for Android. And now you can join in on the fun for $2 less than you could've yesterday, or the days/weeks before that.

Originally $2.99, the game is now on sale for $0.99.

[New Game] Once More, With Feeling: Gamevil's Zenonia 5 Available Now With Global Multiplayer

Gamevil's Zenonia franchise has been impossible to ignore on Android, if only because there have been four relatively high-budget releases in as many years. The fifth installment of the action RPG series, subtitled "Wheel Of Destiny" in the continuing tradition of semi-meaningless JRPG convention, is available now. It's a free download for anyone running Android 2.2 or later.

Gamevil's claim that Zenonia is the "definitive action RPG" might be a little dubious, but it's certainly got its share of fans.

[New Game] Sega's Jet Set Radio Lands On Android With Original Music And New Mobile Controls

If you've ever enjoyed a game with cartoony cell-shaded visuals, graffiti, and an incredible attention to licensed music, you've got Sega's Jet Set Radio (Jet Grind Radio in the original Dreamcast US version) to thank. There are more than a few gamers who keep the ol' beige box plugged in just for this little gem. But now they don't have to: Jet Set Radio is available for Android today, and it's just five bones in the Google Play Store.

Chrome For Android Updated, Brings 'Stability Fixes And Performance Improvements'

Well would you look at that. Seems our favorite - but admittedly still flawed - browser just got itself a little update. No, it's not the developer update we mentioned yesterday (that would be fast) - it's actually just a little bug fixer.

This version update includes a number of stability fixes and performance improvements.

The early reports seem to be pretty good - we're already hearing that there's a noticeable performance boost.

Update: Many of you in the comments along with @GoogleMexico have confirmed that navigation went live earlier today. Congratulations!

Original story below:

It doesn't mean anything yet, and we'd be hard-pressed to tell you when it will mean something, but if you were to take a look at this help file listing countries where Google Maps Navigation is available, you'll see a relative newcomer to the crowd: Mexico.
