Glympse Releases Android Exclusive Express App That Strips The Location Sharing Service To Just The Essentials

When the Glympse app first came to Android, the idea of instantly sharing your exact location with someone was still novel. The function has lost much of its magic since, but it remains as useful as ever. Now the company is improving the service not by adding more features, but by gutting them out. The new Android-only Glympse Express app strips everything from the main app except for the essentials, the features you actually care about.

Square Enix Keeps Expanding Its Collection Of Classic RPG Ports With Dragon Quest II, Available Now For $4.99

Square seems to have run out of Final Fantasy games for Android (and no, you can't have FFVII, so stop asking). The company has been going to its Enix side for mobile re-releases as of late, publishing Dragon Quest VIII, then Dragon Quest IV, then the original Dragon Quest to the Play Store. And since Square Enix is apparently ready to start counting in the right order, you can now play Dragon Quest II in non-emulated form for the not-so-low price of five bucks.

Classic 3D Space Strategy Game Haegemonia: Legions Of Iron Comes To Android

Let me tell you about my life a little over a decade ago. I bought a PC strategy game called Hegemonia (AKA Haegemonia) on a whim in 2002. I played the campaign mode of that game no fewer than four times. It was fantastic. Now it's on Android, and this may be the last you hear from me until early next year. That is, of course, assuming it's still fun to play on Android.

AT&T Announces Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 OTA Update Delivering Android 4.4.2

It's been quite the wait for certain cellular Galaxy Tab 3 owners. The Wi-Fi version of the tablet came out in July of last year, and while KitKat eventually rolled out to several variants of the device, some owners have still been left waiting. Sprint brought Android 4.4.2 to customers back in June, but that did no good for users sitting around on AT&T. Fortunately for such folks, the company has finally decided to push this thing out.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Coins For Apps And In-App Purchases Are Up To 20% Off Until October 19th

Amazon's Coins program, which basically trades real money for digital currency that can only be used on the Amazon Appstore, has become surprisingly popular.

If you're digging Amazon's ecosystem, the retailer is offering discounts of up to 20% on Amazon Coins.

The HTC One M8 Eye Is Now Ready For Purchase, As Long As You Live In China

A couple of weeks ago, a good number of us were turned on by the idea of an updated HTC One M8 that shipped with a camera packing not 4, but 13 megapixels. Then we had our hopes and dreams shattered with news that the device was expected to be a China and India exclusive.

The phone has now gone on sale in China. It will probably get imported into India, but there's nothing new to share concerning the other side of the globe.

Autodesk Releases Pro-Level SketchBook Drawing App On Android

The basic version of Autodesk's SketchBook app has been in the Play Store for a long time, but now the professional version has come to Android. Autodesk SketchBook has more advanced tools, a ton of brushes, layer support, and a lot of it can be accessed for free. Of course, the best stuff is behind a paywall, but it's not too expensive.

For some of us, breaking a smartphone is unimaginable. For others, it's only a matter of time. Either way, it could pay to have your ducks in a row.

Google Posts 64-Bit Android L Emulator Image For Intel's x86 Architecture

Back in June, Google announced Android was destined to gain 64-bit support in the coming L release. A few weeks later, Revision 10 of the Native Development Kit (NDK) was posted with support for the three 64-bit architectures that would be able to run the new version of Android: arm64-v8a, x86_64, and mips64. As we close in on the official release of Android L, Google has updated the NDK to revision 10b and added an emulator image developers can use to prepare their apps to run on devices built with Intel's 64-bit chips.
