Skype for Business apps now on preview for Android devices

Gone are the days when all the people you need to meet with for work are actually located at your office (unless you work in a very traditional one). More often than not, the people you need to conference with are in different parts of the city, the country, or even the world. And while Skype is a good way to make free video calls, of course it isn’t very “professional” sounding or looking. That’s why they’re now introducing a preview of Skype for Business.

Amazon Appstore offering $90 worth of free apps until August 15

It’s that time of the month again (no, we don’t mean that one) and so you better make space on your Android devices as the Amazon Appstore is offering a lot of free apps, which include some of the most popular games, photo editing apps, and utilities. The catch of course is that you need to get the apps not through the Google Play Store but through Amazon’s own Appstore, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Fallout Shelter finally arrives (for real) on Android devices

If you’re familiar with the hugely popular Fallout video game series, then this is something that will interest you: the latest spin-off game, Fallout Shelter, is now finally on Android, almost two months after it was initially released on iOS. It may be a different kind of gameplay for those used to the post-apocalyptic RPG, but it’s still interesting enough to keep you occupied and might even appeal to those who hated the violence and depressing look of the original games.

Rdio now offers live broadcast radio together with its streaming service

While most people who listen to music on their mobile devices probably either listen to the files saved on their gadget or use music streaming apps, for some people, the appeal of live broadcast radio programs never grow old. If you’re one of those people, then you better get yourself on Rdio as they are now offering over 500 live broadcast radio shows coupled with their on demand music streaming. Who says you can’t do both?

Swing and bounce all the way to the top in Protostar’s Sling Kong

Sling Kong is another mobile arcade game that reminds me of Froggy Jump as it makes you aim to go high endlessly but this one doesn't need Kong to do a lot of jumping but rather just sling and swing and bounce. Kong needs to avoid all obstacles and traps to reach the top but I doubt if you'll be able to meet the end.

Gamevil drops massive update for Dungeon Link

Dungeon Link was released by developers Gamevil earlier this year as a kind of crossover/mashup of genres -- if you were wondering what a puzzle game and an RPG would look like together, this game is it. It combines the story and quest-based elements of RPG with puzzle games that stand in your path to leveling up and moving forward in the storyline. And today, we're getting a massive update to the game which opens up more possibilities for players.

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper gets massive update

If you're the nostalgic type, Final Fantasy: Record Keeper might appeal to you, or maybe you've actually started playing it. The game allows players to re-live great moments in the Final Fantasy franchise. It's cute little game by developers Square Enix and DeNA that has actually gathered a bit of momentum, and now a big update is coming that will make the game better.

Heroes and Castles 2 updated, now allows cross platform plays

The second iteration of Heroes and Castles was just released a couple of months ago but it's getting an early update to fix some bugs and errors and allow cross platform plays between Android and iOS. A number of changes were also made to the multiplayer engine to allow A more reliable matchmaking. This game is full of enemies and obstacles like goblins, skeletons, and elven archers and as the hero, you need to fight them all to defend the castle.

Samsung adds more compatible devices to Game Recorder+

It seems that recording yourself while playing a game has become a continuing trend among mobile gamers. It started out with someone filming the gamer, complete with reactions (hopefully unscripted), commentary and all. And then apps that are specific to this purpose came along, bringing a bit of sophistication to the recording. Then OEMs started making built-in apps for game recording, including the newer models of Samsung. Now their Game Recorder+ has been updated to include more devices and optimized performance as well.
