Cerberus is one of the most highly regarded Android security apps in Google Play, and now it can be yours forever at zero cost. All you have to do is download Cerberus from Google Play (if you haven't already) and confirm that free things are of interest to you.
In Quadropus Rampage, you are (predictably) a quadropus. I am not entirely sure what a quadropus is, and it’s not adequately explained in the game. All I know is that it has four limbs, looks kind of like an octopus, and it will mess you up if you don't stop staring at it like that. From the first frame, Quadropus Rampage is a torrent of non-stop button mashing carnage. Does this brand spanking new game have staying power, or does it come and go like the tides?
There is not so much a goal in Quadropus Rampage as there is a drive to make it just a little farther each time.
Gameloft is preparing to unveil the newest incarnation of it's popular and totally original first-person shooter franchise Modern Combat. We can glean several things from the trailer: there will be guns, there will be helicopters, and oh my god the graphics.
This trailer is obviously designed to look as good as it possibly can, but it does seem to be a cut above Gameloft's previous efforts. The level of detail is impressive and texture resolution is very high. If there is a dead giveaway you're gaming on a mobile device, it will be the physics performance, which has always felt lacking in Gameloft titles.
Android gamers have been waiting a long time for world-class publishers and developers to start creating mobile games with the same dedication that consoles and PC get. It looks like we'll have to wait just a little bit longer. Yesterday Square Enix and Eidos Interactive announced Deus Ex: The Fall, a full entry in the much-loved Deus Ex series, set in the same time period as 2011's Human Revolution. The initial media blitz has a lot to say about the iOS version of the game, due "soon," and almost nothing to say about Android.
An Android release is coming, according to a the very last sentence in an Eidos community blog post.
Fire up the Play Store on your phones, Explorers - the MyGlass app for Android received an update to version 1.4 today, adding several very desirable fixes. To the cheers of every Glass user, the reliability of SMS sending has been improved - a significant complaint from day one for the MyGlass app. Hopefully the promised improvements actually, really fix it.
Screencast performance has also been boosted, hopefully to a level above the basically-5-FPS that the feature offers now. And finally, support for Wi-Fi networks with hidden SSIDs has been added. All good stuff. Here's the full changelog:
Minecraft Pocket Edition has had a hell of a development cycle. Each new point release brings a ton of new awesome stuff, though. Today, the app reaches version 0.7 and users get a whole bunch of awesome new features. Like fire. Fire is cool. Spawn eggs have also been added. You can use these items to create sheep, pigs, cows, or chickens.
The new version also includes an in-game chat function (finally!) and initial support for Minecraft Realms. While the feature is currently in alpha, Realms will allow players to pay for easy-to-setup mobile servers that up to ten users can join.
If you haven't yet manually updated Gmail to the redesigned 4.5 release, it's rolling out on a wide basis this morning to users in numerous countries. If you can't see the update on your device, try forcing the install from the web version of the Play Store, here.
The new version of Gmail for Android includes support for the all-new inbox tabs from the desktop Gmail, along with a totally revamped slideout navigation bar. Learn more about the update and the new inbox experience here. In the meantime, head to the Play Store and get that update!
Hangouts for Android is receiving its first Play Store update - on a staged rollout basis - today, fixing a few notable bugs, and promising enhanced performance in unspecified ways. Here's the rather short changelog:
● Fixed a problem where you could receive two notifications for a message: one from Hangouts, one from the old Talk app.
● Audio issues in video calls on some Android 2.3x (Gingerbread) devices, including the Droid Charge, should now be resolved.
● Bug fixes and better performance.
The double notification issue isn't one I'd heard of, but obviously that'd be quite annoying if you were experiencing it.
