PocketBell, a radio alarm clock, may be my new favorite thing. For years it seems, I used Timely, then after that team “joined” Google, I used the stock Android alarm app. It works fine, but if you might be looking for something a bit more fancy, PocketBell is for you.
When setting an alarm, you can choose what type of audio you want to be awoken to.

Launched this morning for iOS, Assassin’s Creed Identity will soon make its way to Android this Spring. Developed by a Ubisoft game studio, Assassin’s Creed Identity brings the classic Assassin’s Creed parkour gameplay to mobile devices, with the game’s story taking place during the Italian Renaissance.
Injected with action-RPG elements, players will customize their own Assassin, then embark on a mission to solve a mystery known as The Mystery of The Crows. You will travel to settings such as Santa Croce in Firenze and the Colosseum in Roma. As you continue to play and complete objectives, your Assassin will level up and grow from novice to a hooded bad ass. (more…)

Because of this, Google is introducing Gamer ID for Play Games. With this, mobile gamers can create unique gaming personas when playing on their phones, so wherever you may be with your phone, you can always be Zardoz, a mortal man sent to teach an enslaved people about sex and freedom. (more…)

Without any further ado, Alto’s Adventure is now live on Google Play for all Android folk to download. This game, which became a very popular title on iOS, brings a lighthearted coolness that only llamas and snowboarding down the side of a mountain can provide.
