We just had to break out the original format for our Apps of the Week post. We missed it. Don't worry — we're still going to focus on best of categories and sort out the great new content as it hits Google Play, but not sharing our personal picks each week didn't feel right.

So you'll find our list of apps we love and think you should try each week on Sundays. Starting right now.

How to keep Facebook Messenger from sharing your location

26
Facebook Messenger Location

Keeping your location a secret in Facebook Messenger is easy to do, but you still have to do it

We've explained how Facebook Messenger isn't anywhere near as evil as a recent spate of ill-informed stories would have you believe, but that doesn't mean there aren't features you can't take control of.

And one of the things we've been asked most is "How do I keep Facebook Messenger from sharing my location?"

It's pretty easy, actually, requiring no hacking at all. Here's how to handle it.

The best adult apps for Android [NSFW]

179
Adult content

In an ocean of apps done poorly, these rise to the top

If you're reading this, chances are you have an awesome pocket computer running Android at your disposal. Today's Android phones and tablets can pretty much do anything, and that includes things of an adult nature. We want to help you find and see that content the best way possible.

We're not here to condone or condemn anyone or anything — and by all means let's keep things legal — but we feel that adults using their Androids to peruse adult content is just fine and dandy. We bet a good number of you guys and gals feel the same way.

If you don't agree, that's cool, too. We also are firm believers in the "live and let live" philosophy, and fully respect your opinion and support your right to have it. We also advise you to not click through the break if you think you might be offended. We love you regardless.

Don't worry, we're not trying to push any boundaries or limits (too terribly far), we just want to share a list of the best ways to find and browse adult content on Android. And do it in an adult way.

Namaste my friend. Namaste.

NPR One review

49
NPR One on the blanket I'm gonna need while I'm listening

Nap-inducing informational radio at the tap of a button, but is it enough to keep you engaged?

NPR, the gold standard of public radio, has a new web service called NPR One, which launched with a web service and apps for iOS and Android. The service ties in with your local NPR station to help keep you connected with local and national stories. However, in a crowded market with internet radio apps such as TuneIn and iHeartRadio, does NPR maintain its shine? Or is it just another app muttering in the background of the Play Store?

Sorcery! 1 and 2 review

18
Steve Jackson's Sorcery 1 and 2 review Android EVGA Tegra Note 7

Back in the early eighties (before videogames became so ubiquitous), a game format emerged that bridged the gap between role-playing games and books. These "gamebooks" allowed readers to read along by themselves while making choices that would influence the outcome of the story. In the US, the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series entertained millions of young readers. Europe had the "Fighting Fantasy" series, created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone.

Thanks to Cambridge-based developer Inkle Studios, Android gamers can now experience one of the most popular miniseries in the Fighting Fantasy lineup: Sorcery. Inkle has adapted two of the Sorcery books into full-fledged videogames, appropriately titled Steve Jackson's Sorcery! and Sorcery! 2. Players can enjoy either game individually, but both titles contribute to a larger fantasy role-playing tale.

Poweramp for Android, the 2014 review

62
Poweramp

It isn't new, but Poweramp remains one of the very best music players around

Not too long back we compiled a list of what we thought to be the best 5 music player apps available on Android. Of the 5, one selected was Poweramp, a long time favorite of many a music fan. In fact, we first looked at Poweramp back in 2010. As time has passed Poweramp has been refined, seen new features arrive, but at its core what it is hasn't changed.

It's been a while since we looked at Poweramp in any great detail, so we've loaded it back up and given it a 2014 look over. Let's see if it's still one to beat.
