Doodle Jump updated, now on sale until November 17th!

6

Aside from Angry Birds, I can only think of one other game that is as much fun (see: addictive) and that game is Doodle Jump. If you've been waiting for Doodle Jump to go on sale before you took the plunge in purchasing it, you'll be pleased to know that from now until November 17th it's available for only $.99 cents.

In addition to the sale, a total of four new themes (Jungle, Space, Night and Christmas) have been added. Most importantly, bug fixes to improve performance and correct a missing platforms bug have also been addressed. You'll find the download link after the break. Thanks Cameron!

Tango Video Calls updated with fixes for EVO and Samsung devices

9

 

If you're a fan of video calling and have yet to try out Tango, now is a pretty good time to give it a look. The cross-platform video calling app was just updated in the Android Market. The two key items in the change log are:

  • Support for front facing cameras on Samsung devices
  • Fixed an issue that was causing some HTC EVOs to reboot when launching Tango

Tango will work over 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi and has a pretty simple set up process. If you've given Tango a spin, let us know in the comments or in the Android Central forums. Download link after the break. Thanks, Dave!

YouTube Remote wants to control your leanback experience

9

If you like to spend your days perusing YouTube videos then the latest Google offering, YouTube Remote might be of interest. As described on the YouTube Blog:

YouTube Remote creates a virtual connection between your phone and YouTube Leanback. To ‘pair’ your phone with your Leanback screen, simply sign into YouTube Remote on your Android phone, and to YouTube Leanback on your Google TV or computer with the same YouTube account.

Having tested YouTube Remote out today for the first time, I have to say it is pretty cool, although I'm struggling to find many use cases for it. If I have a Google TV then I have a keyboard to go with it. If I'm near my PC then I also have a keyboard right there. Just seems more of a novelty application or one that I would use after coming home from the bar. [YouTube Blog]

Clockwork recovery for myTouch 4G now in Rom Manager

0

That didn't take long -- Clockwork recovery has been ported over to the myTouch 4G, and is available right from Rom Manager.  After we saw it ported to the G2, we knew the myTouch 4G would soon follow, and kmobs has done the deed.  There are several ways to get it and flash it, but it's hard to beat Rom Manager.  Be sure you're rooted, install Rom Manager from the Market and fire it up.  ROMs and assorted hacks soon to follow I'm sure.  The Market links for Rom Manager are after the break.  [@kmobs, @clockworkmod] Thanks timbo1083!

Wall Street Journal comes to Android Tablets

1

 

Itching to get the Wall Street Journal on your Android device?  If you have a Galaxy Tab, you can.  In an unusual move, the Journal released an app for Android tablets before/without having one available for traditional handsets.  

When asked about the reason for the timing of their release, they responded:

“Our strategy is to serve readers whenever, wherever, and it’s critical that the Journal’s unparalleled news and analysis are available in a high-quality format across multiple devices and platforms,” said Daniel Bernard, chief product officer for The Wall Street Journal Digital Network. ”The WSJ Tablet Edition for Android continues to blend the best of print and online with an experience that showcases our strength of innovation and original delivery of content.”

The app will allow users to read stories from that day's newspaper, retrieve stock market information, and view full screen videos from the news service.  The daily paper will be "delivered" every morning once it is published, downloading to your device automatically.

The app itself is free, but to gain access to all content, there will be a $3.99-a-week subscription fee.  Current Journal subscribers can gain access to the full tablet app free for a limited time.

The Journal might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's a sign that big companies are starting to notice Android's growth.  

If you have a tablet and you want to give it a try, let us know how it looks. Download links are after the break.  [Via an.droid-life.com and The Next Web]

PowerAMP updated -- gets new features and a $4.99 price tag

32


PowerAMP, a feature-rich music player for Android that we detailed a couple weeks ago, has finally graduated to a full version complete with a $4.99 price tag.  Some of you will say that $4.99 is a bit steep for a music player, but the five-star ratings and positive market comments are piling up.  "This is the best audio player I've ever tested.  I would have paid 2x what they're asking!" writes one satisfied buyer.  With awesome features such as the heavily lauded equalizer, album art grabber, and lock screen controls, MaxMP's PowerAMP aims to be one of the top music players available on Android.

Recent changes include:

  • All Artist Songs via header in Artists->Albums list
  • Shuffle by Artist/Album/Genre selection for SHUFFLE button
  • Option to enable "return to player" button in Folders/Library
  • Option to hide Equalizer Deck in portrait mode
  • Other fixes and improvements

To purchase the full version of PowerAMP, you'll first have to install the trial version of PowerAMP, and then purchase the full version unlocker.  A simple market search for "Poweramp" will yield the exact downloads you need.

Japanese Galaxy S and Darth Vader go hand-and-hand, right? [video]

17

Android more and more these days seems to be synonymous to the Star Wars Universe. We first saw Verizon name its initial Android phone as the Motorola Droid. A "Droid," is another name for robots in the Star Wars Universe. Since the Droid name and branding is owned by Lucasfilm, Verizon must license the name. Soon after, to celebrate 25 years of "The Empire Strikes Back," Verizon and Motorola created an R2-D2 branded Droid 2. Keeping up?

To add more to the Android and Star Wars camp -- Japanese carrier NTT Docomo is advertising the Samsung Galaxy S along side the Sith Lord, Darth Vader. It's an odd commercial, no doubt. Vader in this ad, isn't the Vader we think we know -- he runs through flocks of birds, dances in the club, enjoys boat rides, and more. Even though the commercial doesn't make any sense, our favorite Sith Lord is welcome to the Android club. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Droid 2 Global gets introduced by Motorola in video form

11

At this point we're starting to wonder if Verizon is even really going to bother with giving the Droid 2 Global an official announcement. The device is already available for pre order on the Verizon website along with the Droid Pro, yet Motorola is the one doing the introducing the device to the world via a new video. Rather weird if you ask us, but surely at some point Verizon will make some sort of announcement. While we wait, hit the video after the break for some Droid 2 Global goodness. [via DroidLife]
