[New Game] Line Of Defense Tactics, A Real-Time Strategy Game Spawned From An MMO, Launches For Android And Other Platforms

If we've learned anything from World of Warcraft, it's that strategy games and MMOs go hand in hand. Blizzard's role-playing game has been consuming lives for over a decade now, but it began as an RTS that was arguably every bit as engrossing. Line of Defense is taking a different approach.

Yahoo Kills Yet Another Product - IntoNow, Video Identification App, Has Already Disappeared From Google Play

Do you use your smartphone while watching TV? Yeah, put your hands down. We're all guilty here.

Google Drive Update Brings New 1x1 Quick Scan Widget And Support For Animated GIFs [APK Download]

Looks like another big "Update Wednesday" for Google, starting with the Drive app. Today's update brings just a couple of small-ish changes... unless, like the rest of the internet, you have an obsession with animated GIFs. Or you scan a lot of documents. Or both.

  • Bug fixes

It's worth noting that the widget doesn't actually show up under the widgets menu on launchers like Nova, but rather under the "shortcuts" option.
