If you fall into that camp and wish you could just get rid of the new tweaks, we have good news: there's a new app that lets you do just that.

Official CyanogenMod Music Player 'Apollo' Arrives On The Play Store To Organize Your Musical Muses

In ancient Greece, Apollo was—among other things—the god of music. In ancient 2012, Apollo became the official music app for CyanogenMod. It was gorgeous, functional, and completely customizable, as you might expect from the world's most popular ROM. At the time, we were told that this lovely bit of software would be coming to the Market "in the coming weeks." That was back when we still called it the Market.

Locked and Loaded - The Hunters: Episode One Review

PC gamers alive in the 1990's will remember the XCOM series of games as bastions of the strategy genre. In each, you took control of a global organization that was tasked with defending the Earth from aliens; you did so in turn-based missions, where you killed enemies, escorted VIPs, and defended objectives.

Now imagine that (with some tweaks, of course) on Android.

The premise of The Hunters: Episode One is relatively simple: you are the leader of a team of mercenaries, and you can take different contracts on a daily basis.

Lost In The Crowd: Echofon Review

While there seems to be no shortage of Twitter clients on the Google Play store, they all seem to be a mixed bag of different features and reliability. Some will do push, while others are free; some won't do notifications, and some animations are downright sluggish. Sadly, unless you have the time to go through every app to see which one fits the best, you'll likely need to settle for "close enough."

Echofon looks to add one more to the pile with the beta of their popular client.

HD Widgets Updated To v3.7, Brings Support For Android 4.2's Lockscreen

HD Widgets, one of the nicest looking widget sets for Android, just got updated with support for the new lockscreen widgets in Android 4.2. This will add a bit more usefulness to the rather bleak set of stock widgets offered by Google for the time being, bringing information like weather, various toggles, battery status, and, of course, a slew of different clocks.
