Major Update Rolled Out To NFL '12, Except You Probably Can't Use It

Major Update Rolled Out To NFL '12, Except You Probably Can't Use It

I just want to put this on the table: I don't like football. It's not that I don't understand it - I just find it boring. And silly. I tried to get into it once, and that just wasn't happening. But, I also realize that many of you lovely folks do like football. So this is for you. Well, kind of.

The NFL pushed a pretty major update to its "NFL '12" app last night that brings some pretty nice features for anyone who uses the app:

What's in this version:

- All new Thursday Night Football Xtra companion experience
- Completely redesigned Videos section (Android tablet only)
- Access to the NFL.com/Live

Kairosoft Announces Beastie Bay - It's Like Pokemon Plus A City Builder, If That Makes Sense

Kairosoft Announces Beastie Bay - It's Like Pokemon Plus A City Builder, If That Makes Sense

Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.

[New App] Conjure Is Probably The Smartest Launcher Companion We've Seen For Android

[New App] Conjure Is Probably The Smartest Launcher Companion We've Seen For Android

Looking to give users the "fastest, smartest launcher for Android," Jesse Andersen brought Conjure to the Play Store recently. The app, which is actually more of a launcher companion, can perform an incredible range of actions, from finding and launching apps to calling contacts, adjusting device settings (like volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.), and searching the web.

What's great about this app is not that it can do a lot, but that it actually adapts to your usage, storing a history of actions and listing content results by frequency of use.

Titanium Backup Updated To Version 5.6.0, Adding Ability To Restore From ADB Backup Files, Other Improvements

Those of us with rooted devices and a penchant for flashing ROMs know just how valuable a great backup tool can be. Titanium backup is undoubtedly one of the most popular (and most useful) backup tools around, and it just got an update to version 5.6.0.

The update, which had been floating around as a "test version" prior to official release, brings a few UI enhancements and fixes, an updated set of translations, and improved "Market Doctor" and "Force Attach" functions to repair broken links between apps and the Play Store.

Latest Turntable.fm Update Finally Gets Rid Of Those iOS Buttons, Should Fix A Bunch Of Bugs Too

Latest Turntable.fm Update Finally Gets Rid Of Those iOS Buttons, Should Fix A Bunch Of Bugs Too

When turntable.fm first came out on Android, we were excited. In my review, I said that it was a fantastic start, but could use a bit of polish. In no small part, because of those dang iOS-style buttons. While I still believe that iOS- buttons do not single-handedly make a lazy port, it's nice to see that the developer has taken the time to bring the UI in line with the newest guidelines.

Jetpack Joyride Drops Amazon Appstore Exclusivity, Now Available For All In the Play Store

Back in August, Halfbrick Studios brought their hit iOS game Jetpack Joyride over to the Android side. The problem was, though, you could only get it from the Amazon Appstore. That's not the case any longer, as the game has finally abandoned its exclusive period in the Appstore and is now available in the Play Store.

For those who may not have seen our previous coverage of the app or read Jeremiah's review (spoiler: he loved it), a little insight may be in order.
