Changelog Droid manages and keeps track of app updates

With so many developers updating their apps and with your smartphone having so many apps as well, it’s getting more confusing and difficult to manage all of them.

More devices getting Google Now launcher support

The Google Now launcher was probably the pick of the bunch of features that launched with Android 4.4 Kitkat (you can argue that point with us, of course), and it became all the more better when Google started peddling the launcher to other devices other than those bearing the Nexus prefix through the Google Play Store. After the app’s recent update, we bet more people will be happier because of the apparently wider range of devices supported.

Trend Micro retracts exaggerated Play Store malware claim

If you enjoyed the arcade beat-em-up era of the late 90s, then you might have played this fighting game favorite – King of Fighters.

And yes, game creators SNK Playmore are now bringing this to Android devices. Should be a blast.

Timberman is here to frustrate you, waste your time

Remember that time when all you could think about was get that bird flying (flapping? *wink*) through those darned pipes? We are not heralding the return of the app-which-shall-not-be-named, but as much as mindless casual gaming is concerned, Timberman is probably set to give you sleepless and frustrated nights again.
