How many task managers that keep track of To-Do items can we need on Android? The creators of Taskos, which in itself is a task list manager, thought we were in such dire need for one more that they had to one-up even themselves and create Any.DO.
Any.DO has a completely new interface that is so slick that you will find yourself wondering whether you're running an Android app at all.
Orange Pixel, creators of the well-received "Meganoid", just released a platform/shooter called "INC".
There are 40 levels of robot blasting action, and 8-bit styling and sound effects. It's sort of like Mega Man. The description claims "hard-but-fair gameplay," so there's retro difficulty to go along with those retro graphics. Xperia Play owners will be glad to hear that all their fancy buttons are supported (like you couldn't tell from the giant video thumbnail).
While some people prefer intense, console-like games on their mobile, almost everyone loves simple "time-killer" games. A perfect example of one such game is Super Rope, a new climbing game that recently landed in the Market.
First off, Super Rope is not only fun and easy to play, but it's absolutely stunning to look at. The environments are vibrant and full of life, which drastically adds to the appeal of the game.
If you want complete control of how your phone reacts to calls and text messages in nearly any situation, then a tool recently released to the Android Market called Call Master has your number. This is probably the most in-depth, advanced call and text firewall for Android, offering some insanely useful features. It's from the same developer as Root Call Blocker, and actually uses that as its base.
Amazon pushed an update to its Appstore today that brings a few new features, as well as a much sleeker interface. The theme is much easier on the eyes now, as the formerly-white app is now wearing a suit of gray with hints of orange, which matches the color scheme of the upcoming Kindle Fire perfectly.
Aside from the change in appearance, the Appstore also has support for in-app purchases and parental controls now, as well as a page where you can check permissions before you purchase an app.
Fans of the SimCity line of games are in for a real treat -- EA just released SimCity Deluxe into the Android Market. Build and manage a city in seven different multifaceted scenarios -- everything from planning the World Games to dealing with a flesh-melting heat wave.
You start off with seven cities that were inspired by real-world places and the ability to manipulate each one to your liking, with access to over fourty well-known landmarks to add to the mix.
Following up on the popularity of Burn the Rope, the developers at Big Blue Bubble recently released Burn the Rope Worlds, a new game that improves on its predecessor by taking gameplay to a variety of new worlds, and introducing a few twists as well.
Players can now burn ropes through four new worlds, including Jungle, Mechanical, Fantasy and Space. Additionally, BTR Worlds brings a new mini game called "Endless Burn," which is essentially Burn the Rope's answer to the classic game Snake, the object being to collect as many bugs as possible without hitting a wall, your flame tail growing all the while.
If you're into throwing quirky, fun stuff on your Android and just love live wallpapers, this is the app for you. It's called Alive TV, and it's not only a fun way to liven up your homescreen, but it's very well made, [somewhat] functional, and quite pleasing to the eye.
Here's the gist: a wobbly TV takes center stage, bouncing around as you scroll through homescreens. Bubble clouds appear and float around, creating a rich, playful environment.
PayPal's popular app for Android has received a significant update this morning, and the biggest change allows those with NFC phones to request money from other NFC-enabled devices using PayPal - nifty. While NFC has been slow to see adoption, Google's efforts with Wallet and MasterCard WavePay have no doubt raised a few eyebrows (and one lawsuit) over at PayPal, the world's largest online-only payment service.
NFC support is enabled via a widget, and when in proximity to another NFC-enabled, PayPal-widget-using handset, you can hit the "Request Money" button and the request will populate on their PayPal account.
A sudden change of heart on the part of Com2uS has left many customers of its popular game Homerun Battle 3D infuriated, triggering a downpour of one-star ratings and requests for refunds.
The impetus behind this turmoil is the fact that Com2uS' latest update for Homerun Battle 3D has made it impossible for users running rooted devices to play the game. This decision came after between 100k and 500k purchases had already been made.
