Combine Cute Little Critters And Their Powers In Cartoon Network's Mixels Rush For $2.99

I remember the Cartoon Network of the early 2000s, back when shows like the Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, and Ed, Edd n Eddy were the latest things out. But the channel has moved on to a new generation. These days I find myself writing about cartoons I've never heard of, like Steven Universe and Mixels. The latter apparently involves tribes of colorful creatures that defend Mixel Land from destructive things called Nixels.

Adobe Announces It's Discontinuing Photoshop Touch And Releasing Three New 'Capture' Apps [Update: Photoshop Mix Coming To Android Too]

Adobe brought the stripped down Photoshop experience to Android tablets back in 2011, and added a version for phones in 2013. In a blog post today, the company says the all-in-one approach doesn't make as much sense. Therefore, Adobe will be releasing three new "capture" apps called Color CC, Brush CC, and Shape CC. The classic Photoshop Touch apps are being discontinued and will be pulled from the Play Store on May 28th.

Tip: Quickly Search Through Your Installed Apps By Pulling Down On Nova Launcher's App Drawer

Nova Launcher is easily the top pick for conventional Android home screen replacements, and a "daily driver" for a good chunk of Android Police's staff. The latest update added a Material Design user interface, but there are other goodies hiding just below the surface. For example, version 4.0 includes a simple app search function hidden in the app drawer. It's especially handy if you've got hundreds of installed apps (like Artem) or just don't like organizing your apps into folders (like everyone else).

YouTube 60fps Video Support Appears To Be Rolling Out On Android, Plus 60fps Live Streaming Is Official

Videos shot in 60fps look much smoother and more realistic, but this doesn't seem to be live for everyone yet.

Zen Puzzler Breath Of Light Mixes Basic Gravity Mechanics With Soothing Graphics And Music

A good way to describe Breath of Light would be "ethereal." The soft, flowing music, abstract visuals, and odd lack of any kind of verbal or numerical user interface can almost lull you into a daze, which is an odd thing to say in praise of a puzzle game. And yet in a strange way it is a praise: the combination of music and visuals give Breath of Light that hard-to-define but nonetheless positive vibe of the best "zen" games.

[Wake Me Up When September Ends] Spotify Adapts To Your Day And Runs, Adds Videos And Shows, But Only On iOS Now — Android Sometime Later

Here's an all too familiar story: major app or service gets new feature, releases it on iOS and says it's coming soon or later ... or sometime in the future we don't really know since we just started working on it and our one Android developer is a bit overwhelmed with everything we asked him to do just now and you should be patient because we really value our Android users, cross our heart and hope to die, and we want them to have the same experience as iOS users but it's hard to give you a solid timeline, so trust us that it's coming and we're trying really hard or as hard as we can to make it look like we are, but just leave us alone for a few months and maybe then ask us about it again?

[Praise Duarte] AllCast 2.0 Gets Material, With More Material, And A Sprinkle Of Material On Top

After teasing the Material redesign of AllCast a couple of weeks ago, Koushik Dutta has finally made the updated 2.0 version available for everyone to install, enjoy, admire, and swoon over. And if you're wondering why it looks so good, it's because our own Liam Spradlin had a hand (mouse click?) in giving the app its fresh coat of paint and that is all you need to know.
