D&D classic Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition launched

RPG developer Beamdog has finally done it, the “enhanced edition” of the circa-2000 classic Icewind Dale has finally dropped and is available for Android now. If you don’t remember Icewind Dale – which is a very big doubt – this game was the millennium follow-up to the critically acclaimed Baldur’s Gate. Both franchises should be readily familiar (and nostalgic) to fans of these Dungeons and Dragons-based RPGs.

Star Wars Galactic Defense: tower defense with Star Wars twist

If you have an Android device and do not know what a “tower defense” game is, then this post might not be for you. Then again, if you are a Star Wars fan (we realize these two might not necessarily be inclusive of each other), you might want to check this new game out. Star Wars: Galactic Defense is very much a Star Wars take on the classic tower defense game format. And it’s fun.

Google, Best Buy, HTC offers Nexus 9 pre-orders

You excited for the Nexus 9 yet? Google’s iPad killer was launched recently but will not be available until the early part of November. The Google Play Store has made the item part of their listings, although it is still noted as “coming soon”. All of us are going to have to wait ‘til November to get our hands on the tablet that has been branded as – “for movers and makers” – but there are pre-order options already.

Champ Man 15 is Square Enix’s football management sim

Ok, we’re not necessarily in agreement with Square Enix’s decision to put Arsenal’s long-serving manager on the cover – being that they haven’t exactly won any major silverware lately – but hey, it’s your game. Champ Man 15 – short for Championship Manager, we suppose – is Square Enix’s attempt at getting into the football management simulation game market.

Google expands PayPal support for Play Store

This is clearly good news for all of us here who rely on the Google Play Store so much for apps, entertainment, productivity and such – Google has expanded its list of countries where it accepts payments via PayPal. We have been aching for PayPal support for the longest time, and in May this year, it seems that the gods of Google finally heard our cries.

Google Play Store updated, more Material Design and tweaks

This is a developing story, but it seems that Google has updated the Play Store app, and there are very obvious changes to this new iteration of our favorite app marketplace. The app has changed aesthetics closer to what we might expect from a movement towards Google’s Android L launch (soon, we hope). And there are some tweaks within the app itself that would be good to look at.

Google working on Android app trial before download

Downloading an app on your smartphone or tablet is easy over-the-air. No need to connect your mobile device to a computer just to get the apps you want to use. For Android users, go to the Google Play Store, search for apps under different categories, then click on install. While downloading and then deleting an app you don’t like or won’t use is easy, it can take so much of your data and battery---even time! If only we could test an app before actually downloading, life would be so much better.

Peek moved to developer’s own name, new app pages added

Popular Android utility Peek has a major update, but it's not one that has added new features or fixes bugs. Instead, the update is that the app is now filed under the account of Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo or jedga, Peek's author, instead of his Google Play Store "proxy" Francisco Franco.

Battery Genie watches over devices, notifies you of battery levels

One unique situation, especially for those who are consumed fully by tasks that they may be doing at any point in time, is that you lose track of whether your mobile devices have enough charge in them or not. You may be working on something at your laptop while your tablet is left stranded on your couch, draining battery life until it reaches critical levels. Battery Genie was conceptualized for this situation.
