Google has finally answered the prayers of its legions of Chrome Remote Desktop users by bringing the powerful service to Android mobile devices. The native mobile app has been made available as a free-of-charge download directly from the Google Play Store and will act as a dedicated counterpart to the existing desktop app that has proved so popular with PC and Mac users.

Earlier on this month, we heard that Google would be releasing an imminent update to the Android Camera app, bringing it up to scratch with the offerings of both Samsung and HTC with their respective flagship releases. Today, the day has come, with version 2.1.037 of the native Camera bringing plenty features, including – as promised – a little fake bokeh.

In the earlier days of the modern smartphone, it was the new, casual games that really caught our attention, with the likes of Angry Birds and Cut the Rope really taking a stronghold. But as devices have improved considerably during the past few years, developers of famed PC and console apps have seen the mobile market as an important outlet, and joining the many classic titles to reach the mobile platforms, Age of Empires will soon be heading to the App Store, the Windows Phone Store, and Google’s Play Store.

This past Monday will go down in the history of the Internet forever, since that was the day when the world came to know of the existence of the crucial security flaw in the OpenSSL library – a bug that allowed attackers to exploit any secure system and collect up to 64k of otherwise-considered-secure information from any server employing the vulnerable SSL protocol; a bug that was dubbed Heartbleed. The fix was released, and almost the entire Internet has patched its servers, but did you know that mobile devices could’ve been affected, too? Well, if you own an Android device, Lookout is here to save you!

It’s relatively rare that a mobile game comes along and manages to generate as much excitement and pre-release hype that the Family Guy announcement managed last December. Sure, there’s been a string of extremely popular smash hit games that have immediately benefited from going viral and getting tons of downloads and success on the back of that. However, the Family Guy franchise is an existing household name that already boasts an animated TV series, along with a whole heap of official merchandise. Add to that a stunning, extremely fun and visually impressive mobile game that’s now available to download for iOS and Android.

It’s been a busy day for Dropbox by all accounts, with the cloud storage company having earlier on released an Android version of the Mailbox app it acquired for $100 million last year. Underlining its intention to mix it with the major players in mobile space, Dropbox has released a new photo and image gallery app called Carousel for both Android and iOS, which makes it very easy for users to share their memories with friends and family.

The fact that Dropbox forked out a cool $100 million to acquire Mailbox last year is a testament to how highly regarded the app is, but while it’s now seen as the go-to email solution for those rocking an iOS device, the fact that it’s only available on the iTunes App Store is very limiting. But when a company pays such vast sums of money to acquire something, expansion is generally forthcoming, and as such, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Dropbox has released the Mailbox app for Android, as well as announcing a desktop version.

The new HTC One M8, as well as LG’s G2 and G Flex handsets, all include a nifty feature allowing you to lock a device by simply tapping on a certain area of the display. Now, a new app released over at the Google Play Store offers something similar to those who don’t happen to be in ownership of those aforementioned handsets, and so if you’re looking for a cool new feature but don’t feel like ponying up for new hardware, you may want to give this little utility a try.

Even though the Play Store is moderated to ensure that dodgy, malicious apps don’t make it through the gates and onto people’s devices, it’s not a completely foolproof system. Virus Shield, a relatively new app that claimed to protect users from viruses and other such non-niceties, has scammed many folks out of their money because, at $3.99 a pop, it didn’t actually provide any speakable anti-virus features. Although it has since been ousted by the search giant after being exposed, it remains to be seen whether the 10,000+ customers that parted with the substantial sum will see any kind of refund.

Because of its open-source nature, Facebook has used Google’s Android as its main breeding ground for experimental new mobile features and ventures. The introduction of Facebook Home / Chat Heads update, for example, brought a neat, integrated launcher that combined the social company’s own IM service with the native Android SMS app. Such improvements appear to have been rolled out at the expense of enhancing the official Facebook app for Android, which has been left looking rather unkempt and in need of a visual makeover. An overhaul is on the way, though, and if you’re willing to jump through a couple of hoops, here’s how you can enable the new-look UI right now on your device.

Facebook’s commitment to mobile has undoubtedly been questionable in the past. The purchase of Instagram and subsequent acquisition of WhatsApp has proved that Mark Zuckerberg’s social network definitely sees native mobile experiences as of paramount importance to the company’s immediate future. However, it’s the continuing development of the Messenger app that manages to convince us that the small screen is extremely important to Facebook. It’s only been a matter of days since Messenger was updated with a powerful group management system, but version 4.1 for iPhone and Android is already here, bringing with it the introduction of unlimited free voice calls via a Wi-Fi connection.

Last week, we caught wind of a new app that utilizes mesh networking to enable devices to connect to one another without the need for an Internet connection.

Further details, as well as the download link, can be found after the jump!

No matter what brand of smartphone we pledge our allegiances to, we’re all united in the battle against waning battery life. We’ve all been caught out with a quickly-depleting battery at a time when we desperately need our devices at hand and switched on, and while placing a device into airplane mode does work wonders, it also completely disconnects us from the world. A neat Android tweak called Auto Pilot Mode will throw your device into airplane mode when your signal is down, intermittently checking to see if cellular data has been restored before deactivating airplane mode once again.

BlackBerry has just released a rather substantial update to the iOS and Android versions of its famed BBM app, bringing stickers, group photo sharing, and other such niceties.

Comic book-based movies are currently in vogue, and in the run-up to each new theatrical release, we tend now to see an accompanying title for mobile devices. With Captain America: The Winter Soldier soon to hit the box office, the customary mobile edition has just hit the iOS App Store, as well as Google’s Play Store for those on Android. We’ve got all of the details, as well as those all-important download links, coming up after the fold!

It seems that someone at Facebook likes nice round numbers, because the social network has released Facebook Messenger 4.0 for iPhone and Android. Big new updates are great, except when they’re not big at all, which is certainly the case with Facebook Messenger. See, the app has seen its version number bumped to the lofty number of 4.0, but do the changes warrant a new point-0 release? Probably not, no.

As expected, Microsoft finally unveiled its famed Office app for the Apple iPad earlier on today at a special keynote, and while this is an addition that will doubtlessly be welcomed by scores of iPad users far and wide, there’s also some good news for smartphone-based Office users. As of now, the app is not only free to download, but those using Office Mobile for iPhone and Office Mobile for Android can create, edit and save Office documents on their handsets for free – no Office 365 subscription required.

Even though many Android users have accustomed themselves to using Google Now as a way of readily finding information and performing searches through voice interaction, that hasn’t prevented Samsung from implementing its own, similar feature for its Galaxy range. S Voice, which is perhaps the foremost of an abundance of ‘S’ apps found on the higher-end releases, has been afforded a pretty decent update for the Galaxy S5, and with the APK file having leaked into the wild, you can now download the new-and-improved S Voice app to your Android device.
