[New Game] Hero Academy Calls On You And Your Friends To Face Off In Addictive Turn-Based Combat

Hero Academy is a charming and addictive turn-based strategy game made by people who know a thing or two about strategy games. It may not look like it, but some of the folks behind Hero Academy have worked on the likes of Age of Empires and Halo Wars. This game has brought in such accolades as a 2013 Mobile Game of the Year D.I.C.E award and a near perfect rating on the Apple App Store.

Outlook Android App Gets Updated With Server-Side Search, Alias Support, New Themes, And More

An update for the Outlook Android app landed today that introduces a handful of substantial features, the most notable of which is server-side search. This new functionality allows you to search through all of your email, even messages that aren't on your phone. But Microsoft must have doubts about the app's reliability, because they've included a link to search for more messages at outlook.com if things don't work out.

If you still rather have a copy stored on your phone, the option to download all mail is now in place as well.

Push Fitness Band Claims To Measure Strength Unlike Any Other Consumer Device, Currently Seeking Cash On Indiegogo

There have been products like the Fitbit and Nike Fuelband for a number of years, but these devices are mainly interested in how far you're walking, running, or biking. Strength training is harder to track, but the new Push band on Indiegogo promises to deliver the same quality stats direct to your phone that professional athletes get with high price laboratory equipment.

The Push contains an accelerometer and orientation sensor that follow the motion of your body with a high degree of accuracy.

Smart IR Remote Updated To Support Rooted Phones With Custom ROMs, Even Those That Don't Have IR Drivers Built-In

What timing. Just over a week ago I transitioned my HTC One over from Sense 5 to CyanogenMod, accepting the fact that I was sacrificing IR functionality in the process (and yes, that was something I used somewhat regularly). Now an update for Smart IR Remote has landed that adds IR functionality back to HTC Ones and Samsung Galaxy devices with custom ROMs installed, even if the ROM lacks IR drivers.

ZENDURE Crush-Proof External Battery Gets Funded On Kickstarter, Now Available For Pre-Order

It seems like external batteries are a dime-a-dozen these days, but ZENDURE is one like we haven't seen before. It's crush-proof, sleek, can retain 95% of its charge after 6-months without use, and a lot more. It's badass.

As you can see, ZENDURE started its road to market on Kickstarter. The campaign ended yesterday, with a whopping $216,230 in funding – about $185k more than the original $30k goal. I guess a lot of people like the idea of being able to run their portable battery over with a car.

[New Game] Headless Is An Endless Runner Starring A Decapitated Chicken With An Unexpected Will To Survive

This game asks a simple, yet gory question: how long can a headless chicken survive? The answer is up to you as you guide said headless bird through a crazy world of spinning saw blades and dangling meat hooks. Yeah, PETA will probably be condemning this any moment now.

Tapping on the screen makes the chicken flap its wings and fly upward. The more you tap, the higher it flies. This is how you'll avoid most of the obstacles in the game, but the speed component is essential as well.

Earlier this year, Fitbit released Flex, a bracelet that pairs with a smartphone to help you monitor your activity and encourage yourself to get on your feet.

LG Announces The G Pro Lite, A Cheaper Optimus G Pro That Keeps The Size But Loses The Specs

Don't let the name fool you - the LG G Pro Lite isn't a small phone. This handset has a 5.5-inch screen, a 3,140mAh battery, dual SIM slots, and its own stylus. That means the G Pro Lite is just as large as the Optimus G Pro itself. What makes it "lite" then? The specs. The new handset drops from a quad-core processor to a dual-core processor, and with a 960 x 540 resolution, you can forget watching the 1080p content the original device could handle.

This Pro edition camera features quite a few upgrades from its predecessor (which isn't going away, by the way - it'll just be called "Dropcam" instead of Dropcam HD henceforth), including sharper image quality, 8x zoom, 130 degree field of view, and enhanced two-way talk.
