Peak Game-Focused Brain Training App Comes To Android, Makes Us Wish Conditioning The Rest Of Our Body Was This Easy

Brain training sounds like a mundane exercise, but a steady wave of sites and apps wants us to think of those words as anything but (we all know about this one). Each promises that you can improve your mental capacity in some way through a combination of puzzles and games.

Peak fits into this mold. The bright and colorful app has attracted a significant following over on Apple's mobile platform since its launch in September, with millions of downloads spread across two dozen countries.

5 Local Music Players For Android That Deserve A Second Look

Google Play Music. Poweramp. Apollo Music Player. We certainly do not suffer from a lack of choice when it comes to local music playback on Android. A simple search for the terms "music player" on the Play Store is guaranteed to yield hundreds of alternatives, varying from the excellent to the good and often the mediocre. However, in a sea of notoriously powerful (like Poweramp, GoneMAD, AIMP, Neutron) or familiar (like DoubleTwist, Apollon7 player) apps, hide a few that do something different. This is a selection of 5 such apps.

Innovative Classic 'Deus Ex Machina' Gets Ported To Android 30 Years After Its Debut, Enhancements Included

Today's gaming machines allow for experiences that we could only dream of decades ago, but nevertheless, the early years of gaming were a time ripe with innovation. While gaming at home was no longer a new concept by the time the 80's came around, the decade was still a time of creativity as developers experimented with genres and art styles that wouldn't hit their heydays until years later.

Google's Latest Android Commercial Reaches Cute Factor 11 By Mixing Adorable Animals And Disney's Robin Hood

In 1973 Disney released Robin Hood, a kid-friendly re-telling of the English outlaw legend with anthropomorphic animal characters. There wasn't anything odd about that  - its previous release was The Aristocats. What was odd about the movie was the tonal shift to American folk music, with Texas-born singer Roger Miller providing the songs and narration, and even appearing as Robin Hood's musical merry man Alan-a-Dale (an animated rooster in this version).

HandyGames Releases 1942 Pacific Front, The Sequel To 1941 Frozen Front

There were many real world ramifications from World War II, but one of the more relevant to our coverage on Android Police is that it gave developers material for no fewer than a zillion games. HandyGames saw success with its last WWII title, 1941 Frozen Front, and now the sequel known as 1942 Pacific Front is available for download. It's essentially the same thing but with less snow.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Change Wi-Fi Or Bluetooth Connections From The Quick Settings Menu

We managed to snag confirmation of the upcoming 5.1 update to Lollipop just a few hours ago, but our tipster has already found one of the more obvious changes to the user interface. Google has tweaked the behavior of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings toggles/widgets from the Lollipop Quick Settings menu to allow users to connect to networks or devices without going into the full-page settings menu.

[Wut] HTC Can't Even, Debuts A Rap Video Featuring People Literally Dressed Up As Phones, Peter Chou Shoutout

HTC America's marketing department have apparently all been given pink slips, because I can't think of any other good reason for the following, uh, multimedia experience to exist. Namely, a rap video... about HTC. Featuring someone called Doc G. And this guy.

lol

I don't know why HTC did it. I don't know what they hoped to gain. I don't know who Doc G. is or exactly what kind of doctor he is.

[Game Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Games Of January 2015

Popular wisdom says that movies released in January are the detritus of the previous year, as studios breathe a sigh of relief once all the Christmas blockbusters and Oscar bait has left theaters. The game industry has inherited a bit of this stigma, but it's hard to argue with the evidence: for the first time in over two years, we skipped a game roundup because of a lack of content. Even so, there are enough notable newcomers to keep you occupied until Valentine's Day at least.
