Today it gets even easier to spot those gems with a shiny new Slickdeals app. It includes both the highlights on the front page as well as access to the forums where eagle-eyed shoppers can share their finds.

The app looks nice, with adherence to standard Android UI (for the Holo faithful among you) and even includes a handy side panel navigation area.

It seems that no company can keep a secret for very long. With I/O fast approaching, Google and ASUS are in the spotlight again as details creep out about a pending refresh to the Nexus 7. According to Reuters, two undisclosed sources have leaked plans for a likely release date around July with pricing as low as $149. The tipsters also let slip that the revised tablet will be packing an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and that Google hopes to ship 6-8 million units before the start of 2014.

Not that many years ago, cell phones didn't have fancy color touchscreens, fast processors, or ample storage. In those days, we were thankful we had Snake to pass the time (snow, barefoot, uphill both ways, etc.). While the technology has improved, there is still something alluring about that classic game, and Nimble Quest looks to capitalize on it. In this game, you lead a column of heroes against endless swarms of enemies.

Autodesk has a fantastic record of powerful, well-built apps. Continuing the pattern, the Pixlr Express makers today released SketchBook Ink, a (you guessed it) sketching and line work app specifically built for tablets 7" and above.

While SketchBook Ink is perhaps not up to handling a professional illustrator's full time workflow, it's a versatile tool with functionality that's suprisingly sophisticated for a mobile app. Ink's got a full screen workspace built on a "new resolution independent engine," with seven preset ink styles, a wonderful color picker (with RGB sliders, a color wheel, and a block for shade selection), layering options, and plenty of options to explore.

Well, it's that time again – time for the monthly update to Android's Platform Distribution Numbers. Each month, Google publishes the latest figures, letting developers know what versions of Android are currently dominating active devices.

This month, we're seeing a familiar pattern – Gingerbread is continuing its slow descent, hitting 39.8%, down from 44.2% this time last month. Meanwhile the latest and greatest – Jelly Bean – accounts for exactly 25% of the overall distribution, meaning it's finally hit one quarter of all tallied devices.

Typically, about a week after a new Humble Bundle launches, the indie game distributor adds a few more titles to the mix as a reward for those who contribute above the average price. This time around, Another World, Funky Smugglers, and Raiden Legacy are the ones topping off the pack if you've pitched in $5.53 (at time of this writing) or higher.

With the new additions, this brings the total number of titles up to nine, and at five and a half bucks, you're looking at around $0.62 per game.

Samsung has an app called Push Service that it uses to manage push notifications for its collection of applications found on a variety of phones and tablets. Also, according to user reviews, it can defeat the Amish Army, instantly cure your chronic depression, and raise your pets from the grave. We're not sure if many users will have a need for this, but it can probably find a niche home.

Here's just a sample of what Samsung's Push Service can do for you (note: some reviews may have some colorful descriptions):

Yesterday, BorrowLenses, a site that rents gear to photo and video enthusiasts, posted up a rental page for Google Glass and a matching blog post. Those interested were invited to rent Glass on April 30th. The prices started at $105 for 3 days all the way to $499 for 4 weeks. With the developer version of Glass going for $1500, this didn't sound like such a bad idea if you were just looking to see how it worked without a huge commitment.

As the name suggests, this is the sequel to last year's "breakout" budget phone. And while the Lucid 2 may bump the specs, it's keeps the same low price tag: free.
