The reasons I love Android are many, but it’s when using apps like Chainfire’s 500 Firepaper that I recognize the value in its flexibility. The developer of Android mainstays SuperSu, DSLR Controller and CF-Bench has broadened his reach with this new app, which taps into 500px’s extensive and often-stupefyingly beautiful database of user-submitted photos. 500px is

Facebook has had trouble at Home recently.

When Anomaly 2 was released for Apple’s mobile OS earlier this month, I was disappointed to find it absent from Google Play. This reverse tower defence game is the sequel to the hugely
SeatGeek, a service that offers the best deals for many concerts and sports events by aggregating available tickets from a number of sources, has released an Android app. Previously available on the web and iOS, the Android app works much like Hipmunk does for for air tickets: it aggregates available tickets based on location and
