If you have a Facebook page for a group, business, or the like, then you should have Facebook Pages Manager installed. Otherwise, it's pretty difficult to do anything with that page while on-the-go. If you've already been using FBPM for a while, then you're probably familiar with its quirks, as well as its missing features. Facebook is looking to alleviate at least a bit of your frustration, as the company pushed a small update today that actually brings some fixes and adds new functionality to the app:
What's in this version:
• Turn push notifications on or off for each Page • Upload a photo to a specific album • Attach a photo to a status update • Change profile and cover photos • Save a shortcut to a Page on your phone's home screen • Share links from other apps to Pages Manager
And in one fell swoop, Pages Manager becomes more useful.
Get ready for more run and gun action - SNK has just released another of its acclaimed Android ports of the Metal Slug series on the Play Store. Metal Slug X joins Metal Slugs 1, 2, and 3 on Android, and there's no reason to think it won't live up to the awesomeness of its sister titles.
Metal Slug X is actually a bit of an oddity in this, the era of patches and DLC, because it technically wasn't a new game when it came out.
Good graphics: check. Mythical creatures: check. Blood, violence, and a shamed gladiator set on revenge: check, check, and check. If all those are all on your list of "things for a good mobile game," then Gamelion Studios' Rage of the Gladiator should fit the bill pretty well.
HIGHLIGHTS * Stunning 3D graphics! * Full voice acting. Each boss has its own personality, and taunts you mercilessly! * Extremely realistic animations. When you attack bosses, the impacts and hits feel "real." * 14 insane finishing moves.
As a writer, I pretty much like words. That's my job. Well, it's not my job to like words, but it helps. It's my job to write words in a coherent and entertaining manner. But I digress, this isn't about stringing words together into sentences; it's about stacking words on top of each other in a Tetris-like game for the aspiring wordsmith. Sure, it may sound a bit confusing, but in reality the concept appears to be relatively simple.

Electronic Arts seems to be one of the most disliked game developers on any platform, so it doesn't take much for the internet to rise up in anger against them. The release of Real Racing 3 with its heavy in-app purchases was reason enough to hurl some vitriol at EA. However, the game is free to try and there are a ton of officially licensed cars to drive. So is it really that bad?
If you've been patiently waiting for the sequel to popular top-down shooter Gun Bros, the wait is over. After teasing the release, Glu Mobile posted the game on the Play Store earlier today, giving Android the closest thing it's going to get to Gears of War for the foreseeable future. It's a free download, compatible with Android 2.1 and up, though the more advanced 3D graphics mean that older devices may struggle to run it smoothly.
Update: Twitter has removed the new detailed conversation view from the list of changes. We're not sure if that's because it's not there, or some other reason.
Twitter for Android was updated this afternoon with a few tweaks, bringing the app to version 3.8. Among the most notable changes is an enhanced conversation view, which now shows all replies (and related interactions) to a Tweet, whether going forward or backward in time.
Ah, the golden age of pulp fantasy. When men were men, women were women, and gigantic, toothy, screaming monsters were everywhere. New iOS pilgrim God of Blades takes its inspiration from the muscle-bound heroes from Cimmeria, slaps them on a two-dimensional endless runner background, and throws in more swords, axes, and clubs with a nail on the end than any undead warrior could ever need.
The gameplay in God of Blades is a mix of endless runner platformers and the gesture-based fighters typified by Blood & Glory.
