Pre-Order 'This War Of Mine' For Android And Get PC Version Instantly, Plus 15% Goes To Charity

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes good things happen to bad people. Sometimes things just happen. This unpredictability and grim reality forms the premise behind This War of Mine, a PC game from developer 11 Bit Studios that is on its way to Android.

This War of Mine grapples with the struggles of surviving in a city that's held under siege. You don't pick up firearms and shoot your way out the way most video games would have you confront the issue.

Chevrolet's New Cooling Tech Keeps Your Phone Chilly While It Wirelessly Charges (Via PMA Or Qi), Is Awesome

Have you ever thought "I wish my car had air conditioning... but for my phone"? Of course you have. And if you haven't, you should be happy I've just told you about it, because now that you have thought about it, you of course want it. Because this is a very straightforward, obviously-good kind of idea. Chevrolet, understanding the overall goodness of this idea, has actually decided to build smartphone air conditioning into upcoming versions of the 2016 Impala, Cruze, Volt, and Malibu. Here's how it works.

Basically, the idea is that wireless charging gets your phone quite toasty. In your car, this problem can actually be compounded - your phone is likely connected to the vehicle via Bluetooth, and maybe streaming music, and this just adds to the already-significant heat generated by wireless charging.

[Update: Fixed] Google Photos Users Complain Of An Invisible Data Cap For 'Unlimited' Photo Uploads

The new unlimited upload function in Google Photos is undeniably generous. But the old saying that your mother taught you, "if something seems too good to be true, it probably is," would seem to be in effect. Android Police has received reports from multiple users that photo uploads from the desktop and various mobile apps have hard data restrictions, suddenly cutting out in the middle of the upload process after users pass an unspecified data threshold.

[Update: More Details And Video] CyanogenMod Team Teases Gello, A New Chromium-Based Browser With Tons Of Customizations

There is no shortage of third-party browsers available on Android. While most of us use Chrome, there are plenty of worthy alternatives and valid reasons to choose them. The CyanogenMod team (notably distinct from, but connected to, the Cyanogen Inc. company) is throwing its hat into this crowded ring. The new project is called Gello, it's based on Chromium's open-source code... and that's about all we know for sure at this point.

Zynga Announces Drag Racing Sim CSR2, Coming To Android Later This Year

The original CSR Racing racked up over 130 million downloads, becoming one of the top free-to-play games on mobile devices. It's no surprise that Zynga snapped up the developer, NaturalMotion last year for half a billion dollars. Now, the sequel has just been announced, and it's predictably titled CSR2.

Like its predecessor, this game will focus exclusively on the drag racing aspect with a ton of officially licensed cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and others. It's very, very pretty, but the gameplay is also quite simple. That's the formula that made the first one so popular, I suppose.

CSR2 will be soft launching in some regions over the next few weeks, probably on iOS first.

Are you a goat? You can be one just by tapping a few things in the new Solid Explorer 2.0 to activate goat mode. Okay, you're not really going to be a goat, just like tapping the Android build number to activate developer mode doesn't make you a developer. Still, it's pretty funny.

[Deal Alert] Animated Film 'All Creatures Big And Small' Makes Its US Debut Exclusively On Google Play, And You Can Watch It For Free

Ooops! Noah is gone... but fortunately you can still see what happens to the animals on the Ark. The 3D animated film All Creatures Big and Small is now debuting exclusively in the Play Store, and you can download the HD film in its entirety for free.

Selection_002

This light-hearted movie asks the question of what happened to the animals that didn't make it on board Noah's Ark. It follows Finny and Leah as they try to survive the flood and find safety on the tallest mountain. Meanwhile, their parents attempt to turn the Ark around and rescue their kids. The subject matter may be Biblical, but the tone is hardly preachy.
