AutoCAD WS adds 2D editing, plans a lot more

If you're in the architecture, manufacturing, fabrication or 3D animation, odds are you either use or know of AutoCAD, the standard desktop application for computer-aided design. Publisher AutoDesk has a variety of Android apps available, but the one that's probably of most interest to CAD designers is AutoCAD WS, a remote viewer for DWG, DWF and DXF documents. The latest version (1.4) adds editing to 2D AutoCAD designs, in addition to GPS-enabled perspective viewing and access to files stored locally, on remote servers, email attachments or on the AutoCAD Cloud web app.

Moneto brings NFC to older phones with $30 MicroSD card and app

Want NFC capability? Stuck in a two-year contract with a phone that doesn't have it? Then you're in luck: Moneto is bringing near-field communication chips crammed into standard MicroSD card slots, and using an Android app to add in basic NFC payment capability to almost any Android phone. Theoretically, anyway: at the moment it only works on Samsung's original Galaxy S  and variants for United States carriers - the Vibrant, Fascinate, and the Galaxy S 4G. They're working on adding compatibility to about three dozen phones from Samsung, Motorola, Sony, HTC, LG, and Huawei.

Cloud Music Sniper gives third-party apps access to Google Music

Google Music is pretty awesome - as an integrated service on Android, it's hard to beat. But there's just one issue with music stored on Google's servers, whether it's purchased from the Android Market or uploaded from your collection: it's only accessible from Android using the official Google Music app. With developer R2DoesInc's Cloud Music Sniper, that's no longer the case: this Market app allows any application to access locally stored songs from Google Music, so long as they've been downloaded to your phone/tablet's internal storage or SD card.

Shooter classic Max Payne coming to Android

There's a million stories in the naked city, but former NYPD cop Max Payne has one that could be thrown in the lockup for public indecency. After his wife and daughter are murdered by drug dealers, Max is making a take-out order for revenge, and a side of justice if he's got the time. With two slugs in his stomach and twelve in his heater, the DEA agent searches the dingy streets of New York City, eventually infiltrating and disposing of most of the mob family that's responsible for his family's death. And in a couple of months, he'll be waling his beat again on Android.

Quadrant Benchmark update brings ICS and multi-core support

Overclockers and benchmark masters it's time to update your app and break out the watercooling. The extremely popular benchmark suite for Android has just been issued a much and long awaited update. Quadrant Standard and Advanced has just reached version 2.0 and with it comes some huge changes to the user interface and the benchmark as a whole. We now officially have Android 4.0 ICS and multi-core support.

Free app downloads NASA photos for changing Android backgrounds

I've often considered that the only reason that the infinite reaches of space exists is so that nerds can have awesome photos to set on their computer desktop backgrounds. There's any number of options for Windows and Mac users to choose from, but when it comes to quality space wallpaper for Android, the selection is a little lacking. If you're looking for real photos from the Hubble Space Telescope and other astronomical hardware to put on your Android phone, look no further than Astronomy Picture of the Day ("APOD"), a free download from the Android Market.
