If you've got a hankering for a beefy smartphone rocking a new Snapdragon 600, consider the AT&T Optimus G Pro. Ah, but the contract, you say.

There are three parts to any good Pac-Man game: a maze, some ghosts, and a little yellow dude eating dots and going "wakka wakka." That's it. Despite this seemingly simple formula, Namco has tried to make Pac-Man a mascot for the ages a la Mario, putting him in everything from platformers to kart racers to freaking Tekken. The latest indignity is Pac-Man Dash, in which the little yellow guy jumps on the endless runner bandwagon.

[New App] Team Red Cross Gamifies Local Volunteer Activities, Schools Other Apps With Impeccable Holo Design

You've got to respect the American Red Cross: they're just a bunch of people who love to help people. As a recipient of their assistance through multiple emergencies (hey forest fires, you suck) I've been delighted to see their various disaster apps pop up on the Play Store. But their latest tops them all: Team Read Cross gives you a ton of information on volunteer opportunities in your area, then "gamifies" the act of completing them, sort of like a Foursquare that actually encourages you to do meaningful stuff.

In an impromptu Reddit AmA earlier today, Vector Unit – the development team behind Riptide GP, Beach Buggy Blitz, and Shine Runner – announced that Riptide GP 2 will be hitting the Google Play Store on July 23rd for just $3.

You may remember Riptide GP 2 from its debut on NVIDIA's SHIELD back in March, which showed off the game's updated effects, physics, and overall improved gameplay. Naturally, GP 2 is optimized for NVIDIA's Tegra 4 chip, which means that it will be one of the many games pushing SHIELD to the max once it's released to the masses.

Google Analytics App Gets A Massive Update To 2.0: New UI, More Data, Last Site Loads By Default, And More

The Google Analytics app for Android doesn't get a lot of love, despite the fact that the service itself is incredibly popular. Yesterday version 2.0 began rolling out, and it's improved in just about every way.
