A game called Daddy Long Legs hit Google Play recently, escaping my attention thanks to all of the craziness which has taken place thanks to Google and new Nexus devices. Regardless, we can talk about it now, and the game is very cool.

Skype, the service that practically made video messaging mainstream for this generation, has released its first app since, well, the invention of Skype itself. The app is called Skype Qik, and to be completely honest, it is much like Stories from Snapchat. Users share short videos of themselves with friends and family around the globe, with the ability to go back and forth all from your existing Skype account. (more…)
An application called SnapLock is making the rounds through Google Play, thanks to its upscale design and straightforward ease of use. The app replaces your existing lock screen, bringing a more simplified yet feature-packed experience, while still offering a way to secure your device. (more…)
