ESPN Fantasy Football Updated For 2013 Season, Can't Make Opening Day Come Any Faster

It's hard out there for a football fan. With almost five months to go and nothing but basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, NASCAR, and that game all the foreigners play with their feet to tide us over, it's going to be a long summer. If you're one of the millions who can't get enough of fantasy football, you can kill time with the official ESPN Fantasy Football app, updated for the Draft and thankfully devoid of an annual re-title. It's available as a free, ad-supported download for devices running Gingerbread or later.

[New Game] Official Port Of RE-VOLT - The R/C Racing Classic - Comes To Android, And It's Fantastic

I spent many an hour at my trusty Nintendo 64 playing RE-VOLT as a kid, and when I heard an Android port was released, I just handed over my money without question.

Now, you may say "a racing game on Android? A port of one? Sounds like a lot of potential for terrible awfulness there, David" ... and you'd be right. There is a lot of potential for a lot of terrible awfulness. Not so with RE-VOLT. Questionable English translations in the description aside, this is a fantastically made port of a truly great arcade racer. The controls are actually reasonably precise, too, which was my big worry.

Cloanto Releases Amiga Forever Essentials For Android - Will Allow Licensed Emulation Of Multiple Amiga OS Versions

Playing emulated games on Android is something of a "don't ask, don't tell" affair when it comes to obtaining system BIOS files and such. Cloanto, owners of the Amiga OS license, though, have decided that you no longer should have to scrounge for the appropriate pieces to get Amiga emulation up and running on your device. The company released an app today called Amiga Forever Essentials, which is not only a mouthful, but a complete package of Amiga system ROMs for your enjoyment.

AFE contains Amiga 1.2, 1.3, 2.04, 3.0, and 3.1 system ROMs, so you can easily (and legitimately) emulate iconic devices like the Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200.

[New App] BBC iPlayer Radio Now Available On Android, Complete With Live Listening And On-Demand Downloads

The BBC iPlayer video application has been available to Android-totting Englishmen for some time, but the audio equivalent has sadly lagged behind. Today the app finally lands on Android, and it was worth the wait: BBC Licence Fee subscribers can listen to the various radio stations over WiFi or mobile Internet, and it even works when they travel abroad. Unfortunately, the service isn't available to international users at any price.

The interface of iPlayer Radio is an interesting mix of Holo elements and unique ideas, particularly a station selector that apes an old-school rotary phone dialer. Once you've selected a radio station, you're presented information about the current track or show, along with the standard social sharing functions.

[New App] Icon Themer Lets You Use Any Icon Pack With Any Launcher On Rooted Devices

Yesterday we covered an app that lets rooted users tweak certain aspects of the system, so why not one that'll let you tweak it aesthetically, too? Icon Themer, a new app from developer Faruq Rasid (HelixLauncher, QuickDesk), aims to bring any icon pack to any custom launcher. That's a pretty big deal for those who've bought icon packs for specific launchers but have since started using something different, or those who feel tied down to a particular launcher because of a beloved theme that won't work with others.
