Netflix this evening appears to have quietly unleashed the Android app on 16 more previously unsupported devices, all without updating the application at all.
The whole situation threw us off quite a bit, as the Netflix app description now lists both the new devices and a reference to a new version 1.3, while the app itself is still stuck at 1.2.2.
Nevertheless, after trying to find it in the Market using devices that were previously unsupported (HTC EVO 3D and Thunderbolt), to our pleasant surprise, we succeeded. Read More
A large amount of that comics market has been claimed to the app ComiXology; it's usually been the gold standard for a lot of comic-dom's digital offerings. However, as with other things, it's almost impossible to enforce a standard.
DC Comics has partnered with ComiXology in order to produce their own digital offerings, and distribute them to their audiences. This app uses a lot of the same technologies as ComiXology's, like the Guided View, which allows for easy touch-based scrolling. Read More
Everyone who knows me is aware of my absolute love for zombies. If there's anything that I love more than zombies - it's fragging the ever-living hell out of them with an array of weapons that would impress even the most violent-minded among us. It's not very often that I get the opportunity to do such a thing, but Biofrenzy: Frag The Zombies brings that exact experience to my handheld.
Biofrenzy is a 2D sidescroller where you fight for your life against a seemingly endless hoard of flesh devouring bio-infected freaks - but not without a massive arsenal at your disposal. Read More
Even though FriendCaster Tab was "Honeycomb's first Facebook app," when it initially hit the Market it was, in a word, lackluster. It offered basic access to Facebook, but it was missing quite a few of the most commonly used features.
Since then, the dev has been hard at work completely redesigning the app - and the end result landed in the Market today. The updated app is similar to the phone version, but utilizes Fragments in Honeycomb, and it looks quite good. Read More

UK based news publication The Economist released its official Android app into the Market today, bringing all of the features of the magazine to your handset.

Autodesk is one of the many devs out there that consistently impress me with its high-quality, well-made apps - especially when it comes to Honeycomb. The newest app out of Autodesk's camp, SketchBook Pro, meets - and perhaps surpasses - all of the standards that have been set in my mind for quality development.
SketchBook Pro is a drawing app designed with the professional in mind - and it appears to be quite full-featured. Read More
Before I begin, let's please drop the pretense. This is the internet and nobody knows who you are, so don't sit there and pretend that you don't miss Winnie the Pooh, because EVERYONE misses Winnie the Pooh!
