Save Red Riding Hood from the Big Bad Wolf in A Day in the Woods

We’ve seen a lot of versions of the story of the girl wearing a red hood trying to escape from a wolf intent on gobbling her up, from fairy tales to movies to musicals to graphic novels, and even to a few guestings on TV series. We’ve also seen a few mobile games around, but A Day in the Woods may be the least scary but most stylish and most interesting, if you’re into puzzle games and things like that.

Google Play Movies, Newsstand (paid) rolls out in more countries

While all countries where Android devices are present have Google Play Store available as well, paid content is not accessible to all these countries. But Google is doing their best to slowly expand their reach, working out the kinks and issues that prevent them from making paid content like Music, Movies, Books, etc available in all territories. Yesterday, they announced that three more countries are getting Google Play Movies while four new countries will be able to buy paid content on Google Newsstand.

Google’s new features help developers manage search ads on Play Store

Discoverability on the Google Play Store can sometimes be a pain, especially if your app is similar to or in competition with a lot of other apps. A few months ago, Google gave several developers and app makers the ability to run ads on the search results page in the Play Store itself. And now, they are expanding this with the new Search Ads on Google Play program that will allow more developers and advertisers to run ad campaigns on the store itself and the search results.

DU Speed Booster review: A performance Swiss army knife

Most smartphones these days are behemoths of power, almost as powerful as micro PCs in a pocket-sized form. While all that power is available at our fingertips, quite literally, however, that doesn't mean that our smartphones are running at maximum efficiency. In fact, many apps simply presume that they have full access to all CPU, memory, and storage. Multiply that by the number of apps you have installed and you get a sordid mess of performance black holes. Now, Baidu has come up with DU Speed Booster in a bid to clean all that up. We tried it out to see how well it works.

Google Play Developer Console enhanced with more beta testing options

Google wants you and me to not just enjoy the millions of apps and games available on Google Play Store. The Internet giant wants us to be more involved in a community where the goal is to make stuff that are both fun and useful.

It has become part of their development process that getting comments and feedback on the first versions of their work is important.

Pinatas come to Plants vs Zombies in newest content update Summer Nights

When you think of plants and zombies, or rather plants against zombies, you automatically think, “This needs some piñatas to make it better!” Okay no? But the folks over at EA and Popcap decided that a summer themed content update to the apparently still popular Plants vs Zombies 2 should have piñatas, and lots of them. The Summer Nights theme is rolling out with more new angry plants, brain-hungry zombies, and even shimmery sparklers.

Rovio finally releases Angry Birds 2, now on Android

When reading our headline, you might say, “What? I always thought there was like Angry Birds 10 already out there!” But apparently, we’ve had a lot of iterations or special editions like Angry Birds Space, Rio, Friends, Seasons, Star Wars, Go!, Transformers, Fight, Stella, and many others, but we’ve only had one real Angry Birds game. That is, until now. Angry Birds 2 is now here and they’re “Bigger. Badder. Birdier” than ever.

Xbox Music app now known as ‘Microsoft Groove’

Microsoft's very own Xbox Music app for Android is getting a new name. Don't be surprised if you see 'Groove' everywhere because the software giant has made changes to some of its apps. Aside from the music app being rebranded, Xbox Video will now be known as 'Movies & TV'. The name 'Groove' may mean a lot of things but I'd like to think that it has something to do with establishing a habit or a routine. Music as a routine? Yep, Groove can help you with that.
