Android Central app gets a few fixes, one new forum feature

36

A quick heads up, folks, that an update's on the way for the official Android Central app. Bugfixes, mostly, but we've also added deep linking for our forums.

There's good news and bad news with that. The basic deep linking means that if you tap a link that goes to a forum or thread from or app, or an e-mail, or somewhere else (Twitter and Facebook are still a pain because they shorten links on their own), you should get the option to open it in the app. Chrome is also a little finicky with that, and we've got more work to do there as well. So no deep linking from Chrome. But we're on the case, and we didn't want to wait to get you the basic functionality, especially because it means links within the apps will work just fine.

Transport Empire review

2
Transport Empire for Android EVGA Tegra Note 7

Russian publisher Game Insight knows a thing or two about city building games. We've covered several of the publisher's genre entries in the past. Each one distinguishes itself by setting and premise most of all, with The Tribez & Castlez having a cheerful fantasy setting and 2020: My Country delving into light science fiction.

Game Insight's latest free to play city builder for Android takes place in the best setting yet, the steampunk era! Players will build a commercial empire spanning across a Victorian land, shipping goods back and forth via train, steamboat, and airship. Watching your trains zoom from city to city proves quite enjoyable, and high quality artwork brings it all to life. Read on for our full impressions with video!

Google Now Launcher support appears to be coming to more devices

207

Update: It's now officially available on any device running Android 4.1 or higher.

The Google Now Launcher has received a small update today, and while there's nothing obviously new in the app itself, we're seeing some interesting changes to the launcher's compatibility listings on Google Play. While the changes still seem to be rolling out, we're now seeing compatibility for devices like the HTC One M8, One E8, One Mini 2, Desire 816, Huawei Ascend P7 and LG G3, among others. Android Central readers on Twitter have said they're seeing compatibility with phones the LG G3 and Verizon Galaxy S5, too. Previously the Google Now Launcher, which brings Google Now to users' home screens as an extra panel, was limited to only Nexus and Google Play edition devices, though it was easy enough to sideload on many other phones and tablets.
