The beta group for Nova Launcher received an update for their launcher application today, one which brings new app drawer animations, as well as a few important bug fixes.
Detailed in the GIF image below, users can choose between a few nifty drawer animations, such as a circular opening, slide up motion, and others. To highlight the fixes, users were previously unable to manually change the app drawer icon on their home screen, but thanks to the update, this issue has been fixed. And here I was, thinking it was only me having the problem. (more…)
There is a new massive list of app and game sales taking place over on Google Play, so any plans you might have had for this weekend just went right out the window. So sorry about that.
Anyway, it appears as if the entire Metal Slug series of Android games are on sale for just $1, followed by the very popular Hitman GO for only $1.99.

There are particular visual cues that remind me of things I have seen before, especially when it comes to movies and art in general. The newest game to catch my eye on Google Play, titled Unpossible, throws you right into a fast-paced world that looks straight out of TRON. (more…)
There are plenty of services on the web that allow users to transfer documents online to other users, but not many are as easy and painless as WeTransfer. Today, the service has launched its very own Android application onto Google Play, allowing members to make transferring files even easier while on the go. (more…)
Anyone here that can speak multiple languages, Google Search has received the perfect update for you. Starting this week, the voice-powered search feature of the Search app can now understand multiple spoken languages, without the need for switching between supported dictionaries in the settings menu.
To give you an idea of how this works, imagine yourself asking Google what the weather is like in San Francisco using English. Google will then relay those results to you. Then, imagine you asked the same question, but this time, in one of 50 supported languages. These languages include Spanish, Italian, German, French, and many more. (more…)
Fragment, a prismatic art wallpaper app that was introduced on iOS some time ago, is now available on Android. To say that this app is “awesome,” is probably not doing it justice. If you like wallpapers, custom ones at that, and prisms, you should probably grab this app.
The app allows you to start with new photos taken from your camera, grab images currently stored on your device, or ask the app for inspiration before creating your own prismatic masterpieces. Once you have an image ready, the app’s all-inclusive set of editing tools are at your fingertips. There are over a dozen frames, shapes, and patterns to get you going, options for rotating/resizing/framing/dragging/zooming/etc., and even sliders that will let you adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and more. The possibilities for creating a new wallpaper are practically endless.
If that all sounds like too much work, there is a shuffle button that will attempt to pair shapes and color adjustments for you on the fly. Tap it as many times as you would like until you find a combination that looks amazing. (more…)

The Bandai Namco folks have pushed a new Pac-Man game to Google Play this morning, titled Pac-Man Friends. In the game, you get to play as the same awesome Pac-Man character, but instead of gobbling along a track, you get to move freely within countless different mazes. (more…)
