Android Community Weekly Digest: Aug. 30, 2015

Ready for IFA 2015? Not so fast! While we're just counting down days before some of the biggest reveals this half of the year, last week's events still bear noting. For one, Samsung seems to have found itself in quite a pickle with what Internet has now christened as the "Pengate" design flaw. But on a more positive note, we're already seeing the first volley of new device announcements, as manufacturers and companies get the formalities out the door, leaving the public free to gawk at and fondle their wares this coming days. Without further ado, Android Community's Weekly Digest for August 24 to 30, 2015.

Travel into the ghost realm in Whispering Willows, now on Android 

Games that make you feel like you’re a character in a movie are always a good thing right? What about those that make you feel like you’re both watching an animated movie and participating in it as well? Awesome right? Well, that’s what Whispering Willows seems to be, as the award-winning game makes its way to your Android devices and you delve into a world of mystery, spectral beings, and a haunted mansion with too many secrets.

iBackPack does everything for you (at least digitally)

Lately, we’ve seen 50-in-1 (okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration) things like jackets, pants, necklaces, etc, as our expectations of what wearable devices should be have been constantly changing and upgrading. A new IndieGoGo project called the iBackPack looks bulky and maybe not that fashionable (which they will attempt to solve), but when you find out what it can do, you might be willing to take it anywhere you go.

Scribbled Arena is multiplayer tank PvP, with good old drawn maps

How many ways can you execute a tank head-to-head combat game? Not a whole lot, we would think. There are a lot of multiplayer tank battle games in the Google Play Store, so the key to winning the “battle” – as it were – to get noticed is in the details. Scribbled Arena, as the name of the game suggests, does this through nostalgia.

Live stream any app from your phone on Mirrativ app (beta)

The race for the best live-streaming app in the market is definitely on. From Meerkat and Twiiter-owned Periscope with their social media live broadcasts, to Twitch’s gaming livestream community, to Facebook’s celebrity livestreams. But while they can lifestream videos and games, there aren’t that many (or any at all) that can show other people in real time what you’re doing on your mobile device. Mirrativ may be that innovative livestream app to rule them all.

New ‘Apps’ results layout, colored grid hit Google mobile search

Google's search engine is number one. No questions about that but you know, even if the Internet giant's algorithm is generally reliable, we can't expect the mobile app version to yield the same relevant results all the time. It's the same with the Google Play Store. Searching for a particular app won't quickly show the title you need. For some reason, Google hasn't fully worked on that one yet but it's trying to make the Search app smarter.
