After Bulkypix, here is another game developer studio offering greats deals of apps. Square Enix isn't giving away free games though but most of the premium games that are so popular are now on sale. Fans of Final Fantasy (all versions!), Chrono Trigger, and Dragon Quest would be glad to know that the games are now discounted, at least, for this holiday season.

Android TV Launcher now on Google Play

The Android TV Launcher has arrived on Google Play. A lot of people have been pushing for the program to come to Google Play and finally it's being published there. This is a response to the need to simplify apps more by unbundling related software. Instead of packing all sorts of functionality and variety in just one software, developers are now trying to simplify their stuff. The simpler, the better. People don't want to be too saturated now with other features they don't really use.

Gameloft outs Brothers in Arms 3, now with more actions and bigger weapons

Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War for Android was recently released by Gameloft. That's another game to add to your list of games you'd be playing during the Christmas vacation. I'm not a fan of war games but I know why such can be popular. It's another World War II-themed 3rd person shooter game. It's actually a follow up to the Brothers in Arms 2 released back in 2011. Gameloft has not forgotten fans of the game but it took them a while to launch something new.

Yahoo Weather app on Android now with animated effects

There are a lot of weather apps available but nothing is as stunning as Yahoo Weather. I've tried a number of related apps but I would always go back to Yahoo because of the beautiful images. The app recently received an update with animated effects like fog, heat, lighting, frost, rain, and snow. All you need to do is look at the app and you'll immediately know the weather outside. No need to open the windows because you'll know what's going on outside just by looking at your screen.

Gold-plated Samsung Note Edge spotted in Vietnam

Seeing a gold-plated mobile device is nothing new but if it's spotted in Vietnam, it can be a bit surprising. The mobile market in Vietnam is not that strong so a special edition is not expected. But then again this isn't the first golden gadget found in the country. Golden Mobile previously released a gold-plated Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This isn't an official limited edition unit from Samsung though but just a grand effort by the company who made it.

Huawei Honor 6 sample photos shown off

We've been waiting for Huawei to finally reveal the Honor 6 Plus and now that the smartphone is out, a lot of good reviews are coming out especially in terms of the camera. As we mentioned yesterday, the smartphone highlights a dual 8 megapixel rear camera setup. Such camera, or rather a duo of 8MP cameras, means there's great aperture for photos. It's something like what the HTC One M8 has. Some photo samples prove that the latest Huawei Honor 6 Plus camera is great.

Android apps running on BlackBerry? This isn't a new thing because apps have been running on BlackBerry 10 OS for some time now but the Canadian smartphone pioneer recently teamed up with Amazon. In line with the arrival of the BlackBerry Classic smartphone, this partnership is an effort to bring more Android goodness to the platform. The new smartphone is said to run BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.1, Amazon Appstore, and an Android Runtime.
