Whatcha doing tonight? Give our app a go!

67

Kick your feet up. Take a load off. Pour a glass of something, preferably cool and refreshing. Or maybe just a tad warm, seeing as how for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it's the first day of fall.

And then while you're at it, take a minute and give the official Android Central app a try!

A good update today for those of you who use Expensify to keep the bean counters at bay. Receipt scanning just got even easier, with a couple nice additions for those who tend to procrastinate. (We don't know anyone around here like that. Nope.)

Here's the deal:

  • Rapid Fire Mode-for the procrastinating gunslinger. Snap tons of receipts fast. Enable w/ corner camera button.
  • Easily add pics from Gallery.
  • Exiting SmartScan takes you to Expense List.
  • And a fix for the flash for those who shoot receipts at night.

Get the update at the link above.

Inside the new Moto app, home to most of the cool Moto X features

27
Moto app on the Moto X 2014

All of your favorite features are back on the Moto X, this time housed in a single app

On one level, not too much has changed in the 2014, insofar as the software is concerned. You still have the hotword voice actions, you still have the peeking notifications, and Motorola Assist is still on board, with its bevy of cool features.

New with the 2014 Moto X is that they've all been moved under a single umbrella app, simply called "Moto."

Let's take a quick walk around the new space to get our bearings.

Asphalt Overdrive from Gameloft is coming Thursday to Android

26

During E3 this year, Gameloft announced the latest game in the Asphalt series of racers. Surprisingly, the next Asphalt won't be Asphalt 9. Instead, the series is spinning off in a new direction with Asphalt Overdrive. Instead of a serious arcade-style racer, the new Asphalt will be an endless racer – sort of like Gameloft's recently released Spider-Man Unlimited or Sega's Crazy Taxi City Rush.

Players who are wondering how well Asphalt works as an endless racer plays won't have to wait long to find out. Today Gameloft announced that Asphalt: Overdrive will be coming to Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows 8 this Thursday, September 25! The publisher also released a new trailer to celebrate the news. Keep reading for both the trailer and gameplay details.

AC editors' apps of the week: Destiny, BibBub Boxer, Moovit and more

21
Editor's apps of the week

It's all about the apps

We've rounded up the apps we are using the most this week, and we are here to share! Everyone uses apps. Some of us have a lot of them installed, some of us just a few, but for all of us the multitude of apps in the Google Play store usually has anything we would want or need. The trick is finding the ones we didn't know we wanted or needed.

App discovery is a science. One day, someone will have it all figured out and finding out about great apps that we didn't know existed will be easy. But even then, nothing can compare to a first-hand recommendation from someone you know and trust — like us. Have a look at what we're using and see if any of these tickle your fancy.
