Google Reader For Android Gets Updated, Adds Honeycomb Support

Google's dedicated RSS aggregator, simply called Reader, received an update today that brings full Honeycomb support, as well as a few minor improvements to the app. Added features include a new layout and an improved method of marking items as read, which consists of long pressing on the item.

The Honeycomb layout is a familiar one -- it shares the same look-and-feel as its desktop brother now. While the inclusion of a new Honeycomb interface is a much-needed one, I can honestly say the experience doesn't compare to that of the other RSS readers in the Market, namely Newsr.

[Review] ApzOrb: Funny Spelling, But A New Skin For An Old Snake

Not all classics need to be updated. Sometimes, an adherence to simplistic (yet addictive) game design will win out over flashy graphics any day.

The Pitch

ApzOrb is an update of the traditional "Snake" game that most of us have played on monochrome cellphone screens. However, instead of entertaining us with different shades of grey, this game has made color a vital part of how the game plays.

Instead of having to eat apples to extend the length of your block-snake, you seek out squares of similar colors.

[Review] 'Zorro: Shadow of Vengeance' Brings Us An Interesting Take On The Masked Fencer, But Is It Too Ambitious?

Zorro is a fictional character with a long and storied history. I mean, the character was created in 1919, spawned countless adaptations and inspired Batman, for god's sake: the man in black is frequently associated with the fierce swordplay and the volatile colonial era of Spanish California.

The Pitch

Zorro: Shadow of Vengeance is a side-scrolling adventure in which you play as an anime-styled version of the classic Mexican hero, Zorro.

[New Game Review] Glu's Eternity Warriors: They Should Have Just Called It 'Sword Bros'

While developer Glu Mobile has had a lot of success with its gun-wielding, bravado-toting title, Gun Bros, it seems to be unsatisfied with the mark left on the genre. I mean, why else would they release Eternity Warriors this week?

The Disappointment

In a sentence, Eternity Warriors is Gun Bros with swords. I wish I was kidding.

Usually, I might give this a pass, but Glu Mobile just released a game called Star Blitz which is essentially Gun Bros in space.

HBO Releases MAX GO - A Full Episode/Movie Streaming Android App For Cinemax Subscribers

Back in April of this year, we, consumers hungry for anything that legally streams full movies and TV shows, welcomed Android's first high-caliber streaming app done right - HBO GO. With the ability to watch the goodies on the go utilizing an existing HBO subscription, the HBO GO app suddenly made train rides and treadmills a whole lot more fun. Netflix and Hulu followed, but HBO GO still occupies a special place in our hearts as the pioneer encouraging others to push the limits and not be afraid of unleashing more content on mobile.

Modified Google Videos Allows Rooted Users On Android 2.2+ To Stream Movies

Since movie rentals were first enabled on Android devices, rooted users have been left out in the dark, without the ability to utilize the feature on their device. But, when the man steps in, what do Android users do? Find a way to circumvent the system, of course!

Now, thanks to a clever dev named ften, a modified version of the Videos apk is available for download that bypasses the root and tamper checks, allowing rooted users to enjoy Google Movies like they should've been able to all along.

[New App] Paper Camera Is Unlike Any Other Camera App We've Ever Seen

When it comes to camera apps, it has been a while since I've really been wowed by anything I've seen. Most offer the same features - saturation, color effects, maybe some sort of Polaroid replica... you get the idea. I guess the dev team at JFDP Labs felt the same way, because they have put together the most impressive camera app that I've ever seen, simply called Paper Camera.
