Amazon Prime Music launches “Prime Stations”, soon for Android

The slowly growing music streaming market has got another competitor on the block, and it comes from online retail giant Amazon. "Prime Stations" will now be integrated into their Amazon Prime Music service, available on several platforms, but sadly, not yet for Android devices. If you're used to listening to curated music online ala Pandora or Spotify, then this new service can be an alternative, just in case you've already gone through the whole catalog of available playlists in your current online music streaming of choice.

Doodle Army 2: play online in your own mini-militia

If you like shooting at people and blowing things up, well at least on your mobile device (we hope), then this game sequel should be right up your alley. Doodle Army 2: Mini militia brings more of the same explosive action packaged in a sometimes-cute stickman shooter visual, but this time with more customization options and also an online component that can see you teaming up with or against multiple players from around the world.

Microsoft expands reach, partners with Android manufacturers

We’re seeing a lot of good movement from Microsoft these days, and this says a lot of good things about the new boss, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. We’ve seen how great the upcoming Windows 10 OS looks like, and we’re bracing for what Windows Phone will bring us this year or the next.

Layout, Photo Booth coming soon to Instagram for Android

With over 300 million active users on Instagram, you expect a lot of unofficial apps to come out and add features that are not found in the official one. We've had a lot of fun editing photos and making collages for our real IG while using apps like InstaCollage, InstaSize, and all other Insta-prefixed apps out there. It looks like the folks over at Facebook (who own Instagram, if you didn't know it yet) were observing and learning what these apps have brought to the table and now, they're bringing it as well.

As more people get into the fitness lifestyle, OEMs have had to adjust to the newest "trends" and make sure that their fitness wearables and apps will appeal to not just one kind of workout or sport, but to as many people as possible (well at least those who are getting off their butts to workout or exercise). Fitbit Surge is one of the most popular in the market, and now they will be getting even more of an audience as they add more features to the device and the app.

iFixit’s Samsung Galaxy S6 teardown is up, battery replacement still sucks

We don’t know when MyFixGuide’s teardown of the Samsung Galaxy S6 would come back online, or if it would ever again, but we were pretty confident that IFIXIT would come out with their own teardown guide sooner or later. That day has finally arrived, and it just confirms what we already know about Samsung’s newest flagship – battery replacement for this baby will be a pain in the back.

Sleeping Prince added a price tag, and removed in-app purchase

While the world has embraced fairy tales once again on the big screen, with live action remakes of such classics as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, over on Cloudreach, the prince is still dozing off while the Princess and the entire kingdom is in peril, but not through any fault of the dozing dope. So it's still up to you, loyal mobile gamer, to literally drag the prince to become the hero his kingdom deserves.

TuneIn Radio now available for Android Auto compatible vehicles

Android Auto is still a relatively new platform that Google is exploring, but their recent announcement that apps can now run on compatible cars that are synced with devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop is opening up some doors. One of the few apps that are immediately available for the platform and the compatible cars is TuneIn radio, one of the largest internet radio apps in the market. They are extremely excited to hit the road with the first few users of Android Auto.
