[New Game] Sega Takes The Highway To The Danger Zone With Arcade Flight Sim After Burner Climax [Updated]

You might not have heard of Sega's After Burner [sic] series if you don't frequent the arcade. It's one of Sega's oldest franchises, centered around flight simulations of fighter jets, though the games' arcade origins give them a more casual approach to the genre than, say, Ace Combat. (In fact, the games have always felt a lot like Space Harrier.) The last entry in the series, 2006's After Burner Climax, just touched down on the Play Store for a cool three bucks.

Players will pilot some of the Air Force and Navy's finest machines, including the F14, F15 and F18, through 20 stages against a variety of airborne enemies.

Google Allows Developers To Back Up Data To Your Drive Account, Creates Custom Properties For Docs

Today, Google launched a couple new features for developers that will give them a lot more flexibility in storing data associated with apps. For starters, using what's called "app data folders," a developer can store important files in a user's Drive storage space. This is huge news as, up until this point, the main method for backing up data has been the Backup API, which is great for small things that are 1-2MB or so, but isn't really sufficient for larger files.

Lest you worry that developers can now pile a bunch of data into your Drive account, users will still be able to see how much data is being stored.

comScore Releases February 2013 U.S. Numbers: Android Drops 2%, Apple And Samsung Gain OEM Share

comScore just dropped some new U.S. market share numbers on us and if you like drama, you're going to love this one. According to the analytics company, for the three month period ending in February 2013, Android's share actually dropped 2%, while Apple's rose 3.9%.

Facebook Officially Announces 'Facebook Home', A Suite Of Apps To Make Your Phone More People-Centric

Today at an event in Menlo Park, California, Facebook took the wraps off a family of apps that are designed to make your handset more people-centric, collectively called Facebook Home. As expected, the main feature is a lock screen that allows you to see content without ever unlocking your device. Because content is loaded in the background, you can see your stuff without waiting.

The home screen (called Cover Feed) is similarly tied directly to Facebook. Instead of a wallpaper, you see your friends photos, statuses, and any other visual content. You can like and comment without diving into an app.
