After initially launching last week, Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff is now available to download on Android. Giggity Giggity Goo! The game will be instantly familiar to anyone who ever played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, and to fans of the show. We're rebuilding Quahog, after 'somebody' blew it up. We also get treated to this exclusive mini-episode, which opens up the game (word of warning, there's a couple of curses in there!)
Clash of Clans has had one of its biggest updates in the infamous game’s history today. Now players can raid without any risk to their resources, shield, or trophies, and work towards two new achievements. This is done with a new system called war bases, where multiple players can lump all of their troops together in the same place and, once attack day arrives, they all head out to raid other war bases together. In the meantime, your village stays entirely separate from the whole affair. The full details on the update are available at the SuperCell forums.
Dropbox today announced a brand new app for handling photos called Carousel. In it, you’ll be able to instantly back up pictures as you take them to the cloud, share photos with friends, view images by date and location, and leave comments on photos shared by friends.
A couple of quick improvements are hitting the Microsoft OneNote app on Android today, bringing it closer to parity with the app on other platforms. It's a short changelog, but the biggest thing to note here is that you can now create Notebooks and Sections directly on your OneDrive account on your Android devices. That's one less step to having synced notes across devices, and a big deal for Android users.
Popular iOS email client and Dropbox property Mailbox is coming to Android. The app, which was purchased by Dropbox a year ago, will include an "auto swipe" feature that will allow users to archive an email now and automatically archive similar emails that arrive in the future. Mailbox is launching today on Google Play and you can find it at the Play Store link above.
Another batch of screenshots featuring significant UI updates to Google Android apps has surfaced. The first few were looking at Gmail, and now it’s Google Calendar. Besides the obvious visual overhaul, there’s a new view for birthdays and a daily agenda. There’s also some fresh social integration.
One of the most popular reading apps across any platform, Pocket, is receiving a quick update today with important changes for how you view content in the app. Folks using Pocket on a device running Android 4.4 will now see the app enter "Immersive Mode" when viewing an article in full screen, which hides all interface elements so the content take up as much room as possible. Android 4.1-4.3 devices will hide just the status bar, but that's better than nothing.
Share passages, bookmarks and thoughts with friends though a single app
Bible App has received a big update today, bringing social features to the good book in version 5. You can now explore the Bible with your friends, and have a stream of their activity in the Home view of the app itself.
Other new features include being able to like and comment on friends bookmarks or notes, where you can share ideas and questions about anything you've read.
The app is free, and you can download it right from Google Play.
