It's a pretty big day for Viber, the popular VoIP application that brings "free messages and calls" to your mobile. Seems that the guys behind the app (appropriately named Viber Media) have been hard at work preparing not only major updates to the Android and iOS applications, but also on an all-new desktop client for Windows and Mac.
The update to the Android version of the app brings many new features, including a new Holo'd-out look.
If you've been paying attention to TV Guide's official app, you know that it's needed some attention for a while. Its UI through version 2.x was an outdated pastiche of Gingerbread tabs and gradated iconography desperately in need of a redesign (and support for 4.0+). Today, TV Guide has fulfilled that need (for the most part), bringing to the Play Store TV Guide Mobile version 3.0. The update also brought "many cool new features" to the app, which we'll discuss momentarily.
In a post to the official blog a few days ago, Feedly announced a new beta – version 15 – which quickly found itself released to the Play Store. The service, which has greeted over three million new users since the announcement of Google Reader's impending doom, promises a painless transition to its own backend solution once Reader closes officially in July. While said backend may not have taken hold yet, the developers have been hard at work making the app itself better and better in response to its users.
Are you tired of seeing Starz on your television screen? Do you want to watch Starz as you sit on your back porch? Wouldn't it be great to have your favorite Starz content available on the go? If you feel this way, thank your lucky Starz, because the Play Store has just been hit by a trio of video streaming apps that allow you to see Starz wherever your heart desires.
Changelog Droid, an app that not only shows changelogs of applications you have installed all in one convenient place but also monitors apps that you haven't installed and keeps history of changes over time, is on sale for 24 hours. And by sale I mean it'll cost you about free fifty. I've played around with the app for the last half an hour and found it to be very polished, pleasant to use, and, more importantly, actually handy.
About three weeks ago, Paradox Interactive released what could possibly be one of the best game trailers we've ever seen. It was for its then-upcoming game Leviathan Warships, and was chock-full of more ship puns than you can shake a stick at.
In fact, it was so good they decided to release a second trailer, with even more puns.
If you've had enough puns (I'm kidding – there's no such things as too many puns) and are ready to actually play the game, it's now available in the Play Store.
If you've longed for the abstract and ambient world of strategy game Auralux, but don't have a Tegra-powered device, good news is afoot: the most recent update adds support for non-Tegra devices. Exciting, no?
That's not all, either – it also brings a new level pack "where you invade enemy territory," one new free level, full gamepad and Shield support, and an "important stability [fix] on Nexus 7 devices."
All in all, this is a pretty good update, especially for those who haven't yet gotten the opportunity to play the game in the first place.
There are people who don't care about weather forecasts (like me), people who do care (probably the majority of you), and then there are people who want to know everything about the weather to the point that these images a) make sense and b) replace porn for them. If you belong to the latter category and haven't bought the pricey $9.99 PYKL3 Radar yet, I have some good news that may just help pull the trigger.
