Humble Bumble PC and Android 9 adds three new games


We like to talk about Humble Bumble a lot at TA, and for good reason. If you aren’t familiar, Humble Bumble lets you buy a group of games for a lower than average price, while helping developers and charity. Humble Bumble PC and Android 9 already had six games, but if you pay more than the average, you’ll now get three additional titles: Savant: Ascent, Snyder Arcade, and The Shivah.

In Savant: Ascent, you go up a tower in search of a curious orb while battling enemies. Snyder Arcade is “serious old-school gaming,” as you blast objects in outer space in this shoot-em-up. The last game, The Shivah, you are a Jewish Rabbi trying to find the truth behind money left to him.

The current average price is $3.90, so if you pay more than that you’ll get all of the titles available. Download via the link below.

Dropbox releases Mailbox onto Google Play


Not too long ago, Dropbox acquired Mailbox, an app designed for iOS devices. Of course, Dropbox is pretty friendly on all platforms, so it was pretty obvious that they were eventually going to look at bringing the app to Android at some point in the future. Today, that finally happened.

The app currently only works with Gmail (and iCloud, if you happen to have any iOS devices) but it arguably manages Gmail better than Google’s own client. The interface is extremely clean and flat, and uses swiping gestures to manage emails. Swipe to the right and you’ll either mark a message as read or delete it, and swiping it left either saves the email for later or archives it. This intuitive swiping makes the app extremely fast and fluid to use, and helps speed up inbox management . Read more

Dropbox announces photo gallery, Carousel, for Android


Dropbox is keeping us busy today – not only did they release Mailbox for Android, but they’ve also unveiled a new photo gallery for devices called Carousel. With Carousel, Dropbox wants to provide users with a gallery “for all the photos and videos from your life,” combining your photos in the cloud and the photos taken on your device. Dropbox’s big selling point is not having to worry about the storage space on your device, since photos will be stored in Dropbox’s cloud.

In addition, Carousel will have a messaging system, allowing you to have private conversations to “relive entire events with friends and family” much faster than text messaging. The app is already available in the Play Store, via the link past the break.
