[New App Review] Screen Cast & Screen Recorder Makes Capturing Smooth, High-FPS Video Of Your Rooted Device's Screen A Breeze

When you stop and think about it, an app that could capture what is happening on your phone's screen in high quality mp4 format would be pretty useful. With such an app you could show off a neat new live wallpaper, make an easy to follow tutorial, or do a solid video review of an app - all without having to use a dedicated camera. Wouldn't it be sweet if such a thing existed?

[Updated: Now Official] Google Voice Update Brings Honeycomb Support... Sort Of

Update 9/2/11: Aaand now with the latest 0.4.2.36 update, Honeycomb support is official.

A short while ago, the Google Voice app received an update that brought about a few bug fixes. Almost immediately we began hearing rumors that a Honeycomb interface may have been incorporated into this build. A quick search of the Market revealed that it's not officially supported just yet, so I pulled the apk from my phone and sideloaded it onto my Tab 10.1.

[New Game] Sentinel 3: Homeworld Is An Insane Orgy Of Tower Defense Madness

In a trip over from the iOS world, developer Origin8 Technologies brings us the most graphically intense, visually-stimulating tower defense game that we've ever seen. Before I even attempt to put into words the insanity that this game will bring into your life, take a look at the gameplay, complete with a super-sick dubstep soundtrack:

Speaking of dubstep -- anyone know the name of this track?

Update: We found the song (thanks, Denis!), but we still don't know what it's called.

From The Makers Of Guerrilla Bob: Muffin Knight Released In The Android Market

When our former man Will Shanklin played Guerrilla Bob, he came away very impressed - enough so that he highly recommended it. Fast forward a few months, and the studio behind it, Angry Mob Games, is back with what looks to be another instant classic: Muffin Knight. Take a look:

The story:

Download: Motorola Droid Bionic Wallpapers

The Droid Bionic is coming out a week from now, but its guts have already been leaked online and examined by some curious Android minds (remember the boot animation?).

One of them, P3Droid, ripped out the wallpapers unique to the device, packaged them up into an app, and posted it online. Since I like to see things in front of me, feel and touch them, I then ripped the wallpapers out of his app and am now posting them for individual viewing and downloading (the app is free, so put down your pitch forks).

[New App] Smart Lyrics Makes It Easy To Find Lyrics For Currently Playing Tracks With A Simple Tap

We've all been there -- you're listening to a track when you hear an out-of-place lyric. You think to yourself, "what? That doesn't sound right." So you fire up a lyrics app (or browser) and begin your quest to find the real content of the misheard line.

While this method may work, it's not exactly efficient. To achieve that status, there's an app called Smart Lyrics.

Smart Lyrics is a small and useful app that sits in the notification area, monitoring currently playing tracks from the most popular media players, including Android stock, HTC music player, Winamp, RealPlayer, DoubleTwist, Meridian, PowerAMP (requires Last.fm scrobbling), and Cubed.

WakeVoice Is A Brilliant Alarm Clock - And 20 Lucky Readers Can Win A Free Copy

WakeVoice

There are dozens of alternative alarms out there, but ever since I discovered WakeVoice way back in November, it's been my favorite. The biggest reason: I can lay in bed for a few minutes after I wake up and not feel bad about it since WakeVoice reads me the weather and news (it can also read your horoscope and, depending on your phone, your calendar). The app uses the stock Android speech synthesis voice, but third-party voices are linked from within the app and can be purchased.

LiveSorter Eases The Process Of Sorting Apps - RIP, Manually Maintained Folders

With somewhere around 200 apps on my phone at any given time, it can be a pain to scroll through all of them to find what I'm looking for. Categorizing apps into handy folders can also be time-consuming. Fazik Logic takes the concept of sorting your apps one step further however with LiveSorter, a new app that automatically sorts installed applications into appropriate categories.

Adding to the list of LiveSorter's benefits, it has relatively no resource drain as it only wakes when a new app is installed and needs to be sorted.
