[Update: Stable] SwiftKey Beta improves the flow experience with 3 possible predictions

One of the reasons I don't swipe on my smartphone's keyboard very often is that I can never be too sure what the prediction engine will insert especially when the word is too short or the letters and swipe motion are very similar to another word.

The original Ghosts 'N Goblins comes to the Play Store for one dollar

As part of its recent push to mobilize its classic arcade portfolio, Capcom has dusted off 1985's famous action-platformer for an Android release. Ghosts 'N Goblins, first released in the arcade more than 30 years ago, now has an official port in the Play Store going for 99 cents. It's playable on just about any phone or tablet running Android 4.1 or above, but sadly, not with Android TV or Bluetooth controllers. As some of the game's bad guys would say: boo.

A completely normal premise to be sure. Luckily, Game Shakers is neither here nor there, as the show does not really matter in the scope of this game whatsoever.

Following RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, Atari launches RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch

They say "a picture is worth a thousand words" and today that could not be more astute. Atari has just released their latest cash-in of the RollerCoaster franchise, and yeah, I feel just as unhappy about it as the little sim pictured above.

The Google Home app gets a new Listen tab for music suggestions and discovery

I listen to music when I am doing most any activity, especially for work, school stuff, and the gym. Sometimes, though, it's difficult to find the right artist or playlist that suits my particular mood at a given moment. Luckily, Google Play Music has those suggestions throughout the day for various activities, and a similar feature has arrived for the Home app.

Google is well known for testing all sorts of small server-side changes in its apps, and YouTube is one of the best examples for this. Whether it be the general UI, videos, descriptions, or comments, there always seems to be something that Google is experimenting with in the YouTube app. The popular video-sharing app's latest server-side update makes expanded replies in the comments section of videos a lot nicer.
