Today’s update to Google’s Hangouts Dialer app now let’s you select the app to place a call when you click on phone number links inside of other apps, like Google Maps or Search. You can choose to use the option once or make it your default dialer app.
The long awaited Game of Thrones mobile game is now available for download from the Google Play Store courtesy of Telltale Games. The app has been available for iOS devices since the past week, so the developer has ensured that a large number of users have access to the game right from the start.
Back in 2010, Quest Visual launched an incredible app designed to use the smartphone camera to translate written text in a foreign language to the device owner’s language in real-time. Word Lens Translator would blur out the foreign language text and would replace over it with the new text in a similar font and size.
It’s pretty annoying to find that a email to a friend with a bunch of photos didn’t end up sending because of your email’s attachment size limit.
But with new app WeTransfer, you won’t have to worry about exceeding that limit.
The app lets you send up to 10GB of data at once to another email address. The receiving address will get a download link — from there, they’ll be able to download all the photos on their device.
It’s pretty simple, and that’s pretty much all you can ask from an app — that it works, and that it’s easy. Hit the break for a list of the app’s features, a gallery of screenshots and a link to the app in the Play Store.
Automattic, the company behind the creation of WordPress, has added an app to the Play Store called “Selfies.”
The app does pretty much what you’d expect it to. Nothing too fancy, but its simplicity might be its strength.
“Selfies” lets users take selfies, caption and filter them, and share them into a stream that can be seen by other users. So basically it’s Instagram for selfies but with a much smaller user base. You can also react to other people’s selfies with your own selfies, adding a Snapchat-like feature to the app.
The chances that this app hits the big time and catches on with the masses is pretty low (considering the saturation of the selfies app market), but the app is still in its infancy, so we’ll see where it goes from here. Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a photo gallery of screenshots.
If you’ve got a semi-new HTC phone, you might have noticed that HTC has started adding key Sense 6 apps to the Play Store so that it can roll out updates to users much easier than the usual OTA update process.
Today, HTC’s clock app for Sense 6 has appeared in the Play Store. This means that in the future, any software improvements to the clock app will be handled through the Play Store.
Admit it. You’ve looked at a buddy’s Android phone and thought, “Damn, that wallpaper is nice.”
You weren’t sure how to get the wallpaper for your own phone — it’s not like wallpapers have highly accessible names that you can just “search.”
Or can you? A new arrival in the Play Store allows you to do just that.
DroidPack, app app created by XDA Forum Member donniemceduns, allows you to select between the stock wallpapers from various OEMs, Android versions, ROMs and even other operating systems (yes, this means iOS). The collection is completely categorized and lets you download the wallpapers straight from the app.
It’s a nice addition to the Play Store — go check it out for yourself! Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a gallery of screen shots.
The folks over at Halfbrick Studios (the creators of hits like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride) have released a new game to the Play Store called “Band Stars.”
In this game, users are tasked with forming a band, creating music and beating high scores to reach the top of the charts.
Netflix has a hit on their hands to accompany House of Cards — it’s called Orange Is The New Black, and it just returned for its second season earlier this month.
As with all great modern shows, a presence on social media and other online areas is absolutely necessary, so the creators are doing all they can to promote the show via a brand new app titled “Orange Is The New App.”
