Peak Game-Focused Brain Training App Comes To Android, Makes Us Wish Conditioning The Rest Of Our Body Was This Easy

Brain training sounds like a mundane exercise, but a steady wave of sites and apps wants us to think of those words as anything but (we all know about this one). Each promises that you can improve your mental capacity in some way through a combination of puzzles and games.

Peak fits into this mold. The bright and colorful app has attracted a significant following over on Apple's mobile platform since its launch in September, with millions of downloads spread across two dozen countries.

Skype 5.2 Now Lets You Share Photos With Someone Whether They Are Online Or Off

There's roughly a quarter million ways to send someone a photo online, give or take a couple dozen, but sometimes the easiest method is to fall back on the chat client the two of you communicate through. Skype already lets you send photos (it should, right? considering it got famous handling video), but before now the mobile app required the recipient to be online. With version 5.2, that restriction is gone. Now if you want to insert a quick photo while your contact is nowhere to be found, you can.

Sling TV, a new hardware-free, online-only television service from the people behind Dish Network, is the most exciting thing to happen to IPTV in years.

Yarn Is The Latest And Possibly Best Hacker News Client To Unroll On The Play Store

Hacker News, I've been told, is where cool programmers and entrepreneurs go hang out if they enjoy a slightly more elitist crowd than Reddit. And by its mere target demography, Hacker News was bound to have many developers rushing to make a native Android application to peruse the site — you can see how many clients are out there if you simply search for the terms "Hacker News" on the Play Store. Yarn is the latest arrival, and it may just be one of the best yet if you trust Artem's judgement (which I do).

Google Acquires Photo And Video Backup App Odysee, Folds Developers Into Google+ Team

It's been a while since Google bought up another company - with the regularity that the folks in Mountain View go on the corporate equivalent of a shopping spree, you might say they're overdue. The latest Google acquisition is Odysee, an app and service that automatically backs up photos and videos taken on mobile and saves a copy in the cloud and/or on users' home PCs.

The Android and iOS apps have already been un-published on the Play Store and App Store, and according to the Odysee home page, the service will shut down completely on February 23rd.

Dropbox's Mailbox App Updated With Tablet Support (Sort Of) In Version 1.6

The Mailbox email app belongs to Dropbox, but it began life as an independent app on iOS. That being the case, it's not really surprising that when Dropbox bought the developers and made the app multi-platform, it wasn't initially optimized for Android tablets. It was a little odd when that status quo continued for the better part of a year. With version 1.6.2, that considerable oversight has been addressed.

[APK Download + Teardown] Play Store v5.2 Shows Signs Of A New Details Page, Self-Hosted Enterprise Apps, And Much More

It's starting to look like Google is getting back into the rhythm of regular releases after the holidays. It feels like forever since the last Play Store update began its rollout. We've got a new version for you, but this one doesn't seem to be sporting any user-facing changes, just a lot of bug fixes. However, a deep look inside reveals a lot to get excited about. Of course, if you stumble onto anything we've missed, let us know in the comments.

5 Local Music Players For Android That Deserve A Second Look

Google Play Music. Poweramp. Apollo Music Player. We certainly do not suffer from a lack of choice when it comes to local music playback on Android. A simple search for the terms "music player" on the Play Store is guaranteed to yield hundreds of alternatives, varying from the excellent to the good and often the mediocre. However, in a sea of notoriously powerful (like Poweramp, GoneMAD, AIMP, Neutron) or familiar (like DoubleTwist, Apollon7 player) apps, hide a few that do something different. This is a selection of 5 such apps.
