Robust Music Project / Synth App FL Studio Mobile Finally Lands On Android, Still Costs $20

Robust Music Project / Synth App FL Studio Mobile Finally Lands On Android, Still Costs $20

If you're a musician, aspiring beatmaster, or just really love dinking around with a digital keyboard, I have great news: FL Studio Mobile is finally here for Android. Device compatibility seems decent, but I don't have too many tablets around to check with - I do know it's compatible with the Nexus 7, and a fair number of recent Android phones (oddly, not the HTC One).

For the rest of you, yes, you read the title correctly - FL Studio Mobile costs $20.

Yahoo Mail For Android Now Has A Dedicated Tablet UI, And It Doesn't Look Half Bad

Yahoo Mail For Android Now Has A Dedicated Tablet UI, And It Doesn't Look Half Bad

While Yahoo may not shout "relevance!" from the treetops on an Android blog, the struggling web giant's email service is still hugely popular in the US. Its Android mail client, until now, hasn't explicitly supported tablets. A new update today changes that, and the end product is surprisingly decent-looking (certainly prettier than Outlook.com's most recent update).

While the UI layout isn't revolutionary, it is fairly attractive and clean, something I think we can all appreciate in an email client.

Chainfire's Amazing DSLR Controller App Gets Even More Amazing With Massive New Update, Still In Beta

There really is no other app out on Android as robust as Chainfire's DSLR Controller when it comes to... controlling your DSLR camera. The $8 app - which already had over 10,000 downloads and a boatload of control features - just got a whole lot better this morning with a major update that should have the app's fans absolutely ecstatic. The mile-long changelog includes tons of fixes and improvements, but the new feature list is impressive on its own.

Subsonic Music Streamer Updated To Remove Ads, No More In-App Purchase Required

Subsonic Music Streamer Updated To Remove Ads, No More In-App Purchase Required

Back in October Subsonic was updated with a Holo interface, which was a vast improvement over the old UI. However, that update also included ads. There was a $4.44 in-app purchase to remove them, but now that's a thing of the past. The new version of Subsonic for Android is completely ad-free by default.

The upsell in the app didn't really make much sense in the first place.

WordPress App Updated With Holo UI, A Few New Features

WordPress is a clutch tool for most bloggers, as its easy-to-use, versatile interface provides essentially everything one needs to get content on the internet. For the longest time, however, the associated app hasn't been the greatest thing to use (read: it kinda sucked); today, however, it has been updated to v2.3 which brings a new Holo UI, along with a few new features.

What's in this version:

It's the big UI update!

PSA: Facebook Home Updated, Now Available Outside Of The US

PSA: Facebook Home Updated, Now Available Outside Of The US

Facebook did a soft launch of its new Home launcher late last week, which left a lot of its international users out in the cold. Good news: if you've been dying to get your hands on Home, it's now available outside of the US. Of course, device restrictions still apply, as the app is only available on a handful of handsets right now:

  • HTC One X
  • HTC One X+
  • HTC One
  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S 4

And if you like what it has to offer but aren't necessarily sold on using it full time, there's an easy way to keep all of Home's functionality without sacrificing your existing launcher.

Zombies, Run! Launches Season 2, Time To Strap On Your Vibrams

Few things motivate me to run more than the threat of disembodied zombies pursuing me through city streets.

Fortunately, Six to Start is back with a brand new season of Zombies, Run! Fans of the fitness game have been eagerly awaiting a new chapter almost as fervently as Walking Dead watchers crave their favorite AMC hit.

It's Time To Swagger: Android Open Kang Project ROM Reaches 1 Million Users, AOKPush App Created To Celebrate

Congratulations are in order for the Team Kang, the developers of the Android Open Kang Project.

The team announced their milestone on the aokp.co blog, noting that with the upcoming release of the first Android 4.2 Milestone build, they'll be shaking up the release process a bit.
