The Amazon Appstore seems to be flooding with deals lately, giving us more and more reasons to use it (or at least consider installing it next to the Play Store). After the massive $100 apps and games that went free ten days ago, today's deals affect all of Cartoon Network's games - well, all but one - and discount them to $0.99.
Listen up if you're particularly fond of classic 2D platformers, old-school fighters, or general nostalgia. SNK Playmore is currently offering all of its paid games for just 99 cents apiece. For one title, The Rhythm of Fighters, this is the usual price. For the nine other releases available, this is a discount of roughly 75%, as they usually go for around $3.99. That means you could go through the list and get the full collection for the same amount three games would usually cost.
Pricing changes don't usually happen this fast in the wireless industry. It seems like T-Mobile and Sprint both have multiple contingencies in place to attack one another based on what goes down each day. Following T-Mobile's announcement of the free LTE upgrade for one year, Sprint has revealed a new unlimited data plan that's only $60 per month. There are a few caveats, though.
T-Mobile has really been stepping up the rhetoric against Sprint since the backroom acquisition deal allegedly fell through a few weeks ago. T-Mobile's latest promotion takes direct aim at the Now Network, but it targets the other big carriers too. Starting next week, if you bring a friend over to T-Mobile on a Simple Choice plan, you and they both get a free upgrade to unlimited LTE for one year. Also, there will be awkward dancing, if T-Mobile's promo image is to be believed.
I'm going to say some things about Pac-Man Friends out of the gate that will make some of you want nothing to do with Pac-Man or his pals. This game is free-to-play, and it contains in-app purchases. Three cherries cost 99 cents, a bundle of hearts go for $4.99, so on and so forth. But if you're skilled enough to get by without these power-ups, you don't have to spend any money to get enjoyment out of this experience.
Still riding high from the success of the LG G3, the Korean OEM is looking to capture some of the budget market with a pair of low-cost 3G phones. The LG L Fino and L Bello have several of the features that made the LG G3 great with much more modest specs.
Yahoo has updated its primary Android app with a short and simple changelog: Access digital magazines and news categories from the navigational drawer. Now before anyone gets excited, no, you won't be able to read digital versions of print magazines using Yahoo. For that, you will still need the Google Play Newsstand, Zinio, Kindle, or Nook app installed. What Yahoo is referring to here is something else entirely.
All it takes is a single button and some concentration to help a bizarre type of jellyfish perpetuate its species in Deep Under the Sky. In return, you get to explore an amazing technicolor world on the dark side of Venus. This is the newest game from the developer of the similarly trippy Incredipede, but it's a much more zen experience.
There's something about our camera-equipped portable mini-computers that makes app developers look at them as the perfect platform for yet another niche photo editing app. Want to add text to your images? Here's something for that. Want cool filters? Try this on for size. Want to feel like Snoop Lion? Of course you do. Fragment doesn't even claim to make your photos better. It just makes them... different.
Fragment gives users the power to change their plain photos into abstract works of art.
You have an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the latest gaming craze to sweep the nation—Swing Copters. It's like Flappy Bird, but vertical. Yeah, it goes up instead of to the right. Revolutionary. This is the second game from Dong Nguyen of .GEARS Studios, and will presumably be the first one he doesn't unpublish for mysterious reasons in a few months. It's free with ads, but the supposed in-app purchase to remove them doesn't seem to be present in the Android version.
