Spider-Man Unlimited Now on Google Play, an Endless Runner for the Non Arachnophobic

There is a new Spider-Man game available on Google Play this week, titled Spider-Man Unlimited. The game is essentially an endless runner, a la Temple Run, but there are plenty of features that will keep your mind from becoming bored with the action.

In Unlimited, you play as Spider-Man, who of course must save the city from evil doers. While you fly from tall buildings to skyscrapers and run atop roofs, you must collect coins and go through epic boss battles to continue on in a complete story mode full of missions.  (more…)

$1,000 in Google Play Gift Cards Up for Grabs

This morning, we announced the brand new Deals section of DL, a spot where you can find discounts on bundles of apps, accessories, and other tech-related products. If you haven’t already, be sure to cruise over there and browse around to see if anything fits your current needs. Might I suggest the Android section, where you will find a name-your-price bundle of games and a discounted shower speaker (who doesn’t need a shower speaker?).

If none of that stands out, then I wanted to at least point out that you will find a Google Play gift card giveaway with $1,000 in prizes. The grand prize will receive $150 in gift cards, the runner-up gets $100, and 15 others will see $50 cards.

Details of the contest can be found below.  (more…)

Don’t Stress if You Didn’t Get Asked to Merge Hangouts and Google Voice

Yesterday, we talked a lot about the new Hangouts update that added in the ability to make voice calls. We also talked even more about how the service had finally merged with Google Voice. At least we thought it had.

The night before the Hangouts update arrived, a number of users (us included) received a message in Hangouts and Google Voice, asking us to merge our experiences together. So, we did. Voicemails started arriving in Hangouts, as did our texting experience with a Google Voice number, along with semi-MMS support. It was a glorious time.  (more…)

Verizon LG G2 Receives Update to Get It Ready for VoLTE Launch

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update today (version VS98025B) that prepares it for the company’s VoLTE launch, which should happen any day now. Verizon told us back at the end of August that we should expect the service to go live within the “coming weeks.” It has certainly been a couple of weeks. We exclusively reported that the LG G2 would be one of the first VoLTE devices, so the update arriving now makes perfect sense.

So what’s in the update?  (more…)
