Pinterest's Long-Awaited Photo Sharing App Hits The Google Play Store Now, Amazon Appstore Later This Week

Those of you who obsessively share photos to Pinterest, the rapidly-expanding and all-encompassing social network built for just that purpose, can finally do so from your favorite mobile platform. Pinterest has published the long-promised app to the Play Store for both smartphones and tablets, and unlike some other photo-centric sharing services we could mention, it actually looks pretty good. The interface mimics the bulletin board looks of the desktop web site, taking advantage of extra real estate on tablets to display more columns of popular photos or your stream.

R.I.P. Flash For Android: A Eulogy To The Plugin That We All Wanted To Love, But Never Really Could

I remember the first time I really heard about Flash for Android. Well, maybe not heard about it. The first time I got sort of excited about it. It was in San Francisco, at a trendy Spanish-restaurant-meets-brewery back in the summer of 2010. The taps were pouring freely (and by that, I mean free of charge), tasty little hors d'oeuvres came at us from from all directions, and everyone was having a good, if typically nerdy-awkward, time.

RealPlayer, one of the most well-known media playing solutions available for desktops, has received its own Android app, which came out of beta and hit version 1.0 (officially 0.0.1.0) today. In a press release, Scott Uomoto (SVP Consumer and Helix Divisions, RealNetworks) boldly stated that "this is the media player that people want."

EA Bringing Its 'Origin' Game Store To Android... Eventually

EA just announced at a GamesCon press conference that it will be bringing the popular Origin game store to Android (along with Facebook, Mac, and Smart TVs). For the unaware, Origin is basically EA's answer to Steam as a go-to place to purchase and download games.

At this point there are no other details, but it's worth noting the Mac version has a tentative release timeframe of February 2013. Perhaps we'll see the Android version around that time, too (but I wouldn't count on it).

[New Game] Quantro Is Like Playing Two Games Of Interlocking Tetris At Once, Turns Your Brain To Mush

If you've ever felt like puzzle games are just too easy, have I ever got the game for you. Quantro follows a familiar gaming trope pioneered by Tetris decades ago. Blocks fall from the top of the screen and you line them up into rows to clear them. Easy, right? Quantro makes it interesting by confronting you with two overlapping games simultaneously.

The two games are color-coded, with the red blocks in front and the blue ones behind.

[New Game] GAMEVIL Brings Punch-Out Style Fun To Mobile Devices With 'Punch Hero'

When I was younger, Mike Tyson's Punch Out for the old-school Nintendo was one of my favorite games. It was challenging, crazy-fun, and had a fat king with no nose. Fast-forward many years, and the classic title returned with some familiar faces on the Wii, and it was just as much fun as the original.

One of the best things about Punch Out was (and still is) its whimsical style; along those same lines is a new game from Gamevil called Punch Hero.

Mapsaurus Takes App Discovery To A New Level With An Interactive Map Of The Play Store

Mapsaurus, released today by a developer team of the same name, is perhaps the new app to end all new apps. By pairing an interactive map of Google's Play Store with an intuitive UX, Mapsaurus takes app discovery to a new level – not just of ease, but also of convenience.

The app, which promises to help users "discover apps you never would have known to search for," can branch out an interactive web of apps and games based on apps you already have installed, curated subcategories, or general categories and function sets.

[Weekend Poll] On Average, How Many Apps Do You Purchase Per Month?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see If Your Device Had Google Wallet Support, Would You Use The Service?

We've heard developers gripe that paid apps are very rarely successful numerous times in the past, be it because of piracy or because Android owners simply aren't willing to pay. About a year ago, we asked how many apps readers had purchased in the last month; 71% had purchased 2 or less, and 45% hadn't purchased any at all.
