By now, you should've heard about the Zeemote Bluetooth Gaming Controller. We only gave away a thousand of them a couple weeks ago, after all. We've started to receive ours here at the Android Police Station, so we thought it was an appropriate time to take a look at the device (as well as provide you with some games to cut your teeth on).
It would not be wrong to make a comparison to the Wii nunchuk attachment.
So, you and 999 of your closest internet friends just received a free Zeemote in the mail. Now you're all sitting around in your respective houses wondering what to use your new toy on. You can't ask each other because you all live in different places. Well, since we got you into this mess, we'll help get you out. Here are seven of the best Zeemote-enabled games available.
How's this for amazing? You see a piece of sheet music, but you can't read it because you're a plebian, or perhaps you can read it but you want to hear it. SnapNPlay is an app that lets you take a picture of a line of sheet music and then plays back the notes on the page. This is amazing.

Have you ever wished that you could cram just a few more movies, songs, or other files onto your device? Well, now is your chance – Amazon is currently offering SanDisk's Class 4 32GB microSD card for just $22.89, a ~$68 drop from its list price (and perhaps its cheapest price to date). This deal is even better than the one we saw on a comparable Transcend microSD card last month, especially when taking into account the considerable (and well-deserved clout) SanDisk's brand carries.
There's not much of a story behind Demolition Inc. on Android. Mike the UFO demolition man, er - alien, has orders to take out one city after the next, and you get to control all the chaos. This game starts out very strong, with cars careening around the road and knocking over buildings. A strong opening can't carry a game all the way to the finish line, though. While Demolition Inc.
Rumors about the mythical Google Drive have been ramping up lately. The rumored Google Drive is gunning for Dropbox with universal storage and sync. The Next Web is reporting that the service may launch as early as next week, giving users an initial 5GB of storage space that will sync between Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. Pretty sweet!
Earlier rumors suggest an early April release which we're pretty well past now, but with the intensity rumors have been milling about lately, it would surprise us if it wasn't going to drop soon.
A PR just hit our inbox from the guys over at Quickoffice detailing their new "Connect by Quickoffice" app. Since we like Quickoffice, we decided to take a closer look. Here's the general gist of it: if you're a Quickoffice user, you can install the new app for free (with limited functionality) and save all of your documents in the cloud, allowing you to access view them from any PC, Mac, tablet, or phone.
The ASUS Transformer Prime is the hottest Android tablet on store shelves right now, and for good reason; it's thin, fast, powerful, and well-featured. But there's one shortcoming that ruffled a lot of feathers: very poor GPS performance.
At the beginning of April, Google sealed a deal with Paramount that would bring 500 additional movies to the Play Store. Now, the Roaring Lion has decided to join the ranks as well: MGM studios' catalog is now available on Play Movies. The iconic MGM lion has been around for many years, and is one of the most easily recognizable signs that cinematic enjoyment is coming your way. The addition of MGM means that Google now has five of the six major movie studios' offerings in the Play Store - leaving Fox as the only one that hasn't jumped on board.
