Panzer Panic For Android Goes Freemium. Fire Up Those Gorgeous Cartoonish Tanks, 1 Or 2 Players At A Time

Panzer Panic is a game that has been available on the Android Market for quite some time now in the form of a paid version, costing €2.99 (approx. $3.80 at the time of writing). Although it offers a really cool experience, some users clearly thought that the price was a little too steep, as it has only managed between 1000 and 5000 downloads in the Market. In response to this, the developers have just released a free version, which is exactly the same game, but with an advert on the bottom of the screen.

Android Piracy By Country

We received an email from David Keyes at KeyesLabs today, with a detailed analysis of piracy in various countries. For those that don't know, David is the author of the battery saving app Screebl, and the open source licensing library AAL. A true pioneer in Android app copy protection.

According to David's data, the often used excuse of "Paid apps are not available in my country" is at least partly bogus.

Google Finance Website Gets Mobile: Revamped For Android (And A Certain Other Mobile Operating System)

Google's Mobile blog (as well as their Finance blog) announced an update to the Google Finance mobile webpage on your Android (or... iOS) smartphone. The changes certainly aren't subtle: Google has streamlined finance to appear very similar to all the in-browser Google mobile web-apps. As an Android user, you may be asking why Google bothered - there's already a Google Finance app on the Android Market. The answer? The website, simply put, is just a lot more awesome.

Swiftkey Beta Now Updated To Include Speech-To-Text! Also Includes Various Fixes And Improvements

All I can say is “YAY—FINALLY!” Can you tell that I am totally psyched about the addition of speech-to-text to Swiftkey?

If you recall, I did a brief review on Swiftkey beta back in mid-July. I have been using this keyboard exclusively since that time and have not looked back. In my humble opinion, it is better than any keyboard, including Swype, that I have tested to date on my Droid Incredible.

WaveSecure (Phone Recovery And Security App) Developer Acquired By McAfee: McAfee For Android Coming Soon?

It was only 5 days ago we offered up our readers licenses to tenCube’s phone security and locator app, WaveSecure. We were utterly impressed by the app’s rich feature set, and its clear focus on presenting itself in a professional and well-polished fashion.

Apparently McAfee was of a similar opinion. In a lengthy press release (shown below), McAfee announced they had acquired tenCube (who develop WaveSecure). What does it mean? We’ll probably be seeing a McAfee-branded WaveSecure hitting the Android Market fairly soon, perhaps sporting some exciting new features.
