Last week, Cisco released their Cisco Connect Express app on the market to very little fanfare, though the app is quite impressive. It allows you to control your Cisco/Linksys router from your Android device via WiFi, with the key features listed as:

Guest access – An easy way for visitors to get online. Give password-protected Internet access to visiting friends and family while keeping your own information private. No need to remember the guest password, it’s in the app.

Ancestry.com subscribers now have another way to access their family tree, as the company has released the first beta version of their official Android app. At the moment, it's read only, meaning you can't modify information via the app, and the team has yet to implement many other necessary features such as searching for specific people in your tree.

The official description:

First beta release of the Ancestry app. Please submit feedback to androidteam@ancestry.com.

In my continuous hunt for new apps, I sometimes run into such obvious malware/crapware that it causes an immediate virtual gag reflex. Sometimes, however, this malware is cleverly disguised and to an unsuspecting user it may seem legitimate.

Here, have a look at what I found today:

If you briefly scanned this page, you may have missed the fact that the publisher's name is MicrosDft Corporation (in all caps), or that it's requesting a permission to directly dial phone numbers without your intervention, or that the website in the listing is msM.com.

Looking to improve on Hockey Nation 2010, Distinctive Wireless' 2011 iteration puts special emphasis on utilizing the power of NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor to allow for a wide array of graphic enhancements including specular maps, ice reflections, increased polygon count, improved skin meshing, and animated crowd behavior.

Besides a handful of visual boosts, HN 2011 brings with it a ton of gameplay enhancements. Instead of simply choosing from 14 international teams, the player now has the ability to select from 18 national teams from around the globe, 40 customizable city teams, and the option to choose from 6 exciting gameplay modes, including World League, Go for Gold, Shootout, Exhibition, Playoff and Practice.

If you've been waiting on a new Gangstar game to hit the scene from Gameloft, the time is drawing near. The first trailer for Gangstar Rio: City of Saints hit YouTube today, full of all sorts of non-saintly stuff. It looks like a nasty, violence filled shoot-em-up, in true GTA fashion. Check it.

There's no word on City of Saints will be released, but it looks like it should be landing any day now.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, previously available only on the Flexion store and for the Xperia Play, is now in the Android Market. It's the same action-filled cops vs. runners game from the 2010 remake of the old-school classic, so buckle up and get ready.

If you're tired of Angry Birds (who isn't?) but still enjoy the flick-and-break game mechanics, the allow me to turn your attention to a new game called Princess Punt. The name itself is very fitting for the game -- it's weird, quirky, and eye catching. It's more than just a kill-things-and-get-stars philosophy, too -- it also brings RPG action to the genre. The developer is calling it an action puzzle RPG, which I think is quite fitting.

A few months ago, an app called LBE Privacy Guard landed in the Android Market, which allows for fine-tuned control off app permissions, data usage, and more. It looks like the developer of said app has been hard at work since then, as a new, completely redesigned version is now available. While the name may still be same, the updated version is an entirely different listing altogether, and the previous listing has become home to a Chinese-specific version of the app.
