Field Trip is a somewhat experimental project out of Google's Niantic Labs, an internal start-up that is also responsible for the game Ingress. Field Trip is a location-aware experience just like Ingress, but its purpose is to alert you to notable stuff in your general vicinity. Showing you mildly interesting landmarks is one thing, but Field Trip can now get you free admission to 13 museums in addition to telling you where they are. Read More
If you need a way to take your mind off how depressing it is to not be at Google I/O, then maybe a new app or game will help with that. There just so happens to be quite a few on sale today that may be able to help keep your busy brain at bay, lest you might drive yourself insane.
Now, stop being so blue, panda bear. Read More
As the weekend begins, you know deep down inside what's missing in your life. Happiness, love, and security? Nah, if that's what you were about to say, that's dead wrong. What you need is a big honkin' phone in your pocket running on Big Red's 4G LTE network. Oh, and it can't just be big – it needs to have a full HD screen too. The Droid DNA certainly fits the description, and it just so happens it can be yours for the low price of $19.99 (some restrictions apply, phone will not love you back). Read More
We've come across a pretty decent bundle of apps and games with less-than-normal price tags today. Since you probably already understand what this post is all about, let's cut the fluff and get right into it, shall we?
Update: We've been adding new sales since the post went up towards the bottom of the post.
As always, we'll update if we find more, so check back if you like to save money. Read More
There are still very few "universal" docks available for Android users, but if you own a Samsung smartphone, this little baby comes pretty close. The Samsung Galaxy Multimedia Desktop Charging Dock includes a spiffy flip-out stand big enough to support the biggest of Notes, plus an audio-out 3.5mm jack for easy output to a nearby speaker. One Amazon vendor is selling the dock for just sixteen dollars American, a discount of more than two thirds off the retail price. Read More
It's no secret that HTC has had some issues getting component suppliers to take it seriously after a few bad years. This has led to delays in getting the much-improved HTC One on store shelves. As such, the Taiwanese company has already extended its $100 trade-in program once, and now it's doing so again. You now have almost another full month to take HTC's free money when you buy the One.

Over the past few weeks we've highlighted several Play Store sales that hit at the end of each week. Today, however, looks like a few devs decided to try middle-of-the-week sales, and we figured some of those may not make it to the week's end. So here it is – a short list of sales that are happening right now.
Riddle me this: what is better than one big honkin' external battery? Yes, two big honkin' external batteries. If you head over to Amazon right now, you can get two New Trent batteries at quite a discount. In this age of non-removable smartphone batteries, how can you lose?
All you have to do is add the New Trent iCarrier and iGeek batteries to your cart. Then use the coupon code J8F6EA63, and you'll get the $59.95 iGeek for (almost) free. Read More
It's Friday, at least here in the western hemisphere, and a bunch developers seem to have decided to discount their apps. Everything from triple-A games to handy tools are on sale up to 80%. Some have even gone free. Without any further ado, let's get to the deals - if you can't see the widgets right away, wait for the page to load them all. Keep in mind that the widgets below may not reflect current prices. Read More
Update 4/9/13: The deal is back today.
Those who missed out on eBay Daily Deals' recurring deal on the Nexus 7 ($30 VISA gift card, ear buds, 32GB Nexus 7 for $259.99) the last four times we've seen it, Daily Deals has pulled through once again, this time with a significantly better price. Though the 32GB slates up for grabs are refurb and don't come with a random pair of earbuds, $189 is an undeniably good price for a 32GB Nexus 7 which, if new, would cost buyers $249.99 from the Play Store.
