Mobile companion apps for AAA PC and console titles have become popular in the last few months: see companions for Call of Duty and FIFA 2013 for examples. Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 is a surprisingly excellent addition to the shooter franchise, and it offers a companion app for its multiplayer component. But what makes this one different is that it includes more than the standard social/organization elements: playing the Outpost app can score equipment and upgrades for the main game.

We've had our fun with Zombies, Run! before. The fitness program/zombie horde simulator is one of the more innovative ways we've seen to get in shape. However, it's not all casual fun. Sometimes you have to get serious. If you're looking for an app to push  you a bit harder, you may want to check out Zombies, Run! 5K Training. Currently on sale for $0.99 in the Play Store (75% off), this one gives you more in-depth structure to get you through a full 5K in 8-weeks.

Horror and adventure are a surprisingly potent combination for gaming - just ask anyone who's played TellTale's series based on the Walking Dead series. The niche is a little barren on Android, but has gotten a little less so with the release of Killer Escape. In this game you're a luckless protagonist captured by a serial killer, and you've got to use your wits to escape via a series of puzzles and exploring your dank surroundings.

Starcraft (Brood War) on Android with full touch controls.

Great, now that I have your undivided attention, let me explain. So, you, like most reasonable human beings, think playing Starcraft on a tablet would be pretty awesome. It's been tried before, but usually the result is a messy, laggy ROM on an N64 emulator that requires you to control a cursor with a digital joystick. And as we all know, that's basically like poking yourself in the eye with a hot fork.

Facedroid is an app that ambitiously set out to give users a more powerful, functional Facebook experience. Until now, though, it was only available for Android tablets.

In a substantial update to version 2.52 today, that changed – the new update finally brings Facedroid to your phone. The phone interface, as you may expect, looks to bring the same functionality users have come to know and love from the tablet version.

CyanogenMod just announced that CM 10.1 builds starting with nightlies released today will be getting a brand-new clock widget called Chronus (initially known as 'Lock Clock'). It works both as a homescreen and lockscreen widget, is configurable, and provides extra information in the form of calendar events and weather.

It works on both phones and tablets, and in lockscreen widget mode, appears collapsed and must be expanded in order to view additional information (this could later change with a settings toggle).

Tax may apply in your respective state, so be sure to check the total before you confirm your purchase (there was no sales tax in CA for me). Even with tax, you're probably saving some money anyway, so it's a worthy buy.
