I'm planning a trip to India and Ireland next month, and since it'll be only the second time I've left North America, I could use a few directions. Google's various services are fine for that as they are, but the latest addition to Search is a handy one for anyone on the road. If you've booked your hotel online and received a receipt or confirmation in your Gmail inbox, Google will make a note of it.

TuneIn Radio is a popular streaming audio service that offers free and paid versions of its app, but there's something weird with the pricing today. TuneIn Pro is a bit of a juggernaut in the Play Store with between 1 and 5 million installs—huge for a paid app. It was $3.99 until today. Now? $9.99. Wishing you bought it yesterday?

How's your day going? Good? Would some app and game sales make it better? Well, it doesn't matter—you're getting them anyway. There's a pretty good selection of them today, so prepare to spend a little money.

The second installment of the Plants vs Zombies 2 Dark Ages update has come to Android, and it brings along quite a bit of medieval-themed content for mobile gamers looking to absorb more of that hot zombie on plant tower defense action. This time around we're looking at ten new levels along with the debut of multiple plant and zombie units.

Part two introduces several gameplay altering enemies. A Wizard Zombie can use magic to turn players' powerful plants into non-intimidating sheep.

At the end of last year, I reviewed BACtrack's police-grade Bluetooth mobile breathalyzer. I came away extremely impressed (and drunk), but it was quickly pointed out in the comments that $150 is pretty pricey for such a gadget. While the price has since dropped to $120, it's still out of many users' reach. Good news! Touch of Modern is selling it for $90 till August 3rd. That's a solid deal.

Alert! Alert! If you use Instagram's Android app, complete strangers could be looking at your photos of appetizers and makeup techniques right now! ...which is kind of the point of Instagram, I suppose. But security researcher Mazin Ahmed discovered that the app uses standard HTTP to transmit photos, cookies, and authentication (including usernames and unique IDs), instead of the encrypted HTTPS protocol. As Mr. Mackie is so fond of saying, that's bad.

Kapsula-Thumb

Sometimes you can look at a game and tell exactly what it's going to be about. Okay, most of the time you can look at a game and tell what it's going to be about. But every now and then a title comes along that really just wants to be different. Kapsula is a cross between a puzzle and racing game set in a futuristic world of Soviet space colonies filled with clones.

Android has always made it easy to replace default apps, but managing the defaults still isn't very good. Even the recent improvements to the "complete action" dialog box are only half measures. Always or just once? Surely there's room for more nuance? That's what Better Open With gives you.

The Comic-Con special editions of Andrew Bell's Android figurines are always special, and this year is no exception. These limited-edition Heroes & Villains II figures were available in San Diego last week on the show floor, but now you can pick them up in a 4-piece bundle for yourself. It's priced reasonably at $40, which is the same sticker price you would have paid for four regular figures.

The figures have a comic book theme, but with a suitably technological twist.
