Universal asks Spotify to “strongly urge” users to switch to premium

While there is no doubt that digital music and music streaming services has totally revolutionized the way we listen to and consume music, what is still up for debate is how artists and music label are "properly compensated".

Now, even one of the stakeholders of the service is dissatisfied with how they are monetizing from users who have almost unlimited access to their catalog.

Episode 2 of Tales from the Borderlands arrives to much acclaim

If you’re a proper gamer, you will at least have heard of the Borderlands franchise. The game has made us all believers in a fun and engaging story-based first person shooter again. The storylines are unique, the characters are ones you definitely won’t forget.

Now Episode 2 is here, and it’s packing some serious fun.

X-Men: Days of Future Past brings side-scrolling action to Android

If you’ve been around Marvel movies in the past few years you’ll know that the title of this new Android game from Glitchsoft – X-Men: Days of Future Past – is taken from the movie of the same title, which was in itself an attempt to bring together the screwed up timelines and storylines the X-Men movies have given us. The game itself reflects the movie, but gives us some nostalgic 2D side-scrolling fun while it’s at it.

Space Chicks: an endless platformer where you can save the world

It may not have the most politically correct name (or even the mission itself), but it sure looks like a fun game to play. Space Chicks is an endless platformer that lets you become the hero, not just to the "chicks" but to the world, and all you have to do is use just one finger. Okay, that isn't as dirty as it sounds, believe us, since really, the game has simple one touch controls.

Amazon Appstore to offer paid apps for free

While most Android users still get their apps from the Google Play Store, online retail giant Amazon is still trying to make their mark through their own Android-based appstore. They know the only way to attract users to them is by borrowing a little something from how Amazon has lured consumers to their site: through discounts, freebies, and sometimes, even more "disruptive storefront promotions". It looks like they'll be continuing with this strategy as they're preparing to launch an "Unlocked" section in the appstore.

The folks over at Facebook are not resting on their laurels despite being the largest social network in the market.

Looks like the newest product they will come out with soon is a dialer and caller ID app, if a leaked image can be believed.

Quickoffice updated but only to move you to Docs, Sheets, Slides

It's been 9 months since it has been updated and not it looks like QuickOffice is finally being truly pushed out of the picture by Google. A new "update" to the app has not really changed things, but instead informs users that this app isn't being supported anymore and instead they should move on to Docs, Sheets, and Slides. We don't get why they don't just disable the app, but okay, a handful of people still use it, so there.
