[Exclusive Download] Google Music 4.0.1 Built For ICS - All New Interface, Better Controls, And More

Oh, do we have a story for you. It's a story of mystery, intrigue, and a lost prototype Nexus Prime. Yes, a lost Nexus Prime. Or Galaxy Nexus - whatever it'll end up being called.

Our story begins like any other -- with a person. Not just any person, though -- this person is special. They go by the name of Geek Vundotra, and they work for Verizon. Geek is a Verizon engineer who happens to be carrying a very special phone.

[Game Review] Musaic Box by HeroCraft Takes Hidden Object To A New Level

The same developers who brought the kitsch hit Farm Frenzy to Android have recently released what they're calling their best game ever: Musaic Box - a game that successfully combines the hidden object and puzzle genres, and adds some truly unique twists that make for a dynamic, interesting experience.

At A Glance

The very first thing I noticed about Musaic Box was the stunning visual style. The environments are clearly polished, with an astonishing level of detail, and almost everything you'd expect to be interactive actually is.

[Review] Car Tunes Makes It Easy To Keep Your Eyes On The Road While Finding The Perfect Justin Bieber Song

Every once in a while, an app comes along that revolutionizes the Android experience in an unimaginable way. More often, though, we get apps that simply regurgitate the same thing we've seen a thousand times before but with a different colored title bar or some such minor adjustment. A happy medium between the two, however, is necessary to the advancement of the platform. Perhaps the most important type of app is one that provides the functionality that we've been using the whole time but solidly improves how it is done.

[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.

[Sunday Android Fun] Developer Goes Hilariously Ballistic In His Own App's Description + Entrance Music Every Time You Walk Into The Office

It's Sunday night, and as the news fairy is getting ready to go to sleep, I'm really itching to highlight a few things that caught my attention earlier today, for those who aren't following us on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ (really, you should be).

1. Entrance Music

Have you ever wanted to be greeted by your own entrance music the same way boxers do when they enter the ring?

[App Roundup] Five Apps From July 2011 That We Thought Were Awesome

DeskSMS

As a Canadian, I can't use Google Voice in order to send my SMS. However, there are numerous apps that act very similarly, including the new DeskSMS from the developer who brought you ClockworkMod.

DeskSMS transfers SMS to both your e-mail and other IM applications through the use of your Google Account. This allows you to answer SMS on-the-go and with the use of a full keyboard. As someone with big fingers, I can't tell you how annoying it is to try to do a large amount of typing with an on-screen keyboard.

[New Release] LauncherPro Dev's New Project, UberMusic, Leaves Beta

Last month we had the chance to play around with LauncherPro developer Fredrico Carnales' latest app, UberMusic. I, personally, had a great amount of fun with it, as it evokes a certain "Zune" feel while remaining largely functional.

The app's left its open beta phase and is now available on the Android market for a price of $3.49; for a music player that pulls in album art and artist data, I'd say that isn't too bad of a price.

Review: Spotify For Android (US) - Is It The Music Streaming Service You've Been Waiting For?

No, it's not. At least not for Android - and that's what we're here to talk about today. The merits of Spotify as a music streaming subscription service for your desktop are substantially greater - it's well organized, searching and streaming are quick, powerful, and pretty. There's a lot to love - and at $10 (or free for ad-supported and no Android playback) a month for unlimited streaming, those plusses are hard to argue against.

[New App] Last.FM Releases 'Festivals', Looks To Be In Your Pocket While You're In The Mosh Pit

 I've used Last.fm for a couple of years now, logging (or, in their terminology, "scrobbling") over 58,000 tracks as I listen to them. It's kind of your music player's "most played" list on steroids, as it's cross-compatible with everything.

Last.fm also works with local event listings, as well; they've just released a new app called "Festivals" that will hopefully find its way to music fans' phones everywhere.

Festivals works like a trip planner to make sure you get the most out of your festival experience.
