Before we leave you for the weekend, we thought we would fix you all up with a ton of good deals on apps and games to play until Monday. This week’s list, after last week’s display of heavy modesty, is quite the extensive one, boasting great apps such as Today Calendar, Business Calendar Pro, Assassin’s Creed Pirates, Riptide GP2, ReNotify+, a few Disney apps, and a couple EA Games titles.

It was quite a week out in Google Play land, so make sure you don’t miss out on a good deal right below. (more…)

Gameloft’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hits Google Play, Priced at $4.99 With Additional IAPs

With every new blockbuster title that hits theaters, Gameloft comes out and releases its next blockbuster game. This time, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is getting the gaming treatment. This title looks to play directly off of the movie, as Peter Parker takes on the same group of villains he sees in the movie, with a few extra surprises in there for good measure.  (more…)

Hulu Plus, Crackle, and Showtime Coming to Amazon Fire TV Voice Search This Summer

Shortly after Amazon announced its new Fire TV at the beginning of this month, with accurate voice search as one of its highlighted features, pundits quickly questioned its limited searching power. Fire TV’s voice search can only search Amazon content, plus content from one partner app made by Vevo. Amazon promised that more apps would soon join the party, which they have announced today as Hulu Plus, Crackle, and SHOWTIME ANYTIME.

These apps won’t enable unified voice search until this summer, but at least it’s a start or something to look forward to. Before long, I’d imagine this list will grow dramatically, assuming the Fire TV sees any sort of success.

How has your Fire TV experience been thus far? Walking Dead on it is certainly full of win.  (more…)

Chromecast Support Headed for MLB At Bat App Today

Google announced that the official At Bat application from Major League Baseball will receive Chromecast support today, allowing baseball fans the opportunity to stream games right to their big screen.

From any Android device that is currently running a Premium subscription to MLB.TV ($24.99, I believe), simply slap the Cast button found on the video, and off you will be. While the game is playing, you can use your phone as a second screen, checking scores and stats from around the league, getting the most out of your baseball time.  (more…)

Google’s Edu Device Setup App Updated for Android 4.4.3, Still No Sign of the Update

Google updated its Edu Device Setup app this afternoon with a changelog that mentions Android 4.4.3. As you probably recall from yesterday, Sprint told us to expect an update on the Nexus 5 to Android 4.4.3 at any time, though the update has yet to surface on a device in the wild.

This changelog doesn’t give us much else in the way of when we can expect the update or what will be included in it, but I think it’s safe to assume that it should be here any day. If both Google and Sprint think the update is ready, I’d be surprised if we don’t have a download link for you very shortly.  (more…)
