Google Play Music All Access is our App of the Week!

IMG_20130517_102240Now Google Play Music has been an AOTW before; but following the announcement of Google’s All Access streaming internet radio service, we thought it would be a good time to revisit it.

Clearly targeting Pandora and Spotify, now Google is offering an all you can eat music service for $9.99 a month. So let’s click past the jump, and take a look at the new app!

Tap and Share Files FOR REAL!!! SuperBeam is Our App of the Week!

superbeamSo, we spent a little time during last week’s app of the week explaining what you can and can’t actually do with NFC.

S-Beam is a really cool solution for easily sharing large files, but it only works between Samsung phones. No sharing large files between Sammys and Motos/HTC’s/LG’s/Asus/Pantechs/etc.

This week, to fill in those gaps, how about we review an app which will allow any, ANY NFC enabled Android handsets to share large files with a simple tap. I’m SO excited about this app, I even shot a VIDEO of it in action, sharing files between different manufacturers’ devices! I’m so excited I EVEN DANCE!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present SuperBeam:

Don’t Forget to Clean Up The Digital Pet Poop – Tamagotchi is our App of the Week!

Screenshot_2013-02-14-14-42-56Can’t even lie. Wont pretend to be “cool.”
I rocked a Tamagotchi as a kid, and was devastated when it would get sick or die. I took the care of my fake pet VERY seriously.

For those not in the know, or too young to know about Will Smith’s music career, a Tamagotchi was a small egg-shaped device with a very low resolution black and white screen, and a few simple buttons for controls. On the screen you’d see a little digital pet and you’d feed it and walk it and take care of it. According to Bandai:

Tamagotchis are a small alien species that deposited an egg on Earth to see what life was like, and it is up to the player to raise the egg into an adult creature.The creature goes through several stages of growth, and will develop differently depending on the care the player provides, with better care resulting in an adult creature that is smarter, happier, and requires less attention.

And now, you can care for a little digital pet of your own on Android!

AVALANCHE!!! Ski Safari is our App of the Week

I’m embarrassed to say this little diversion has been destroying the battery on my Nexus 7.

This one’s easy to recommend folks. You’re sound asleep when an avalanche strikes your cabin, and you have to ski to safety! Ok, well, you never actually make it to safety per se, this game is all about trying to see how far you can make it down the mountain before you’re engulfed.

Tap the screen to jump, hold the screen to flip. Along the way you’re aided by various animals like penguins and yeti, and if you’re really lucky you might find the odd ski mobile to help accelerate your escape.

Execute jumps and tricks to rack up a higher score, and coins can be collected to buy new outfits and powerups. I’m partial to the ninja costume. Ninjas are rad.

Free in Google Play, so go hook it up!

Android App of the Week: Drisk (Droid Risk)

What’s a little world conquest between friends?

Risk is one of my absolute favorite board games of all time. A brutal game of strategy with just the right amount of luck involved to keep things interesting.

Now if only there were a way to play this classic game on some kind of technology-like device instead of cardboard…

Android App of the Week – Zombieville USA

It’s always a bit surprising to me, in this day and age of Android outselling iOS, that there are still third party apps which remain exclusive to Apple.

That makes it even a bit more of a victory when a game that’s been on iOS for over a year FINALLY makes the jump to the “good” side.

I present to you, one of my favorite iOS games.

Android App of the Week: Photoshop Express

So I’m pretty new to Android. I’ve watched the OS closely since the G1 was released, and waited for a combo of hardware and software that would appeal to me enough that I could finally say goodbye to my old Windows Mobile handsets.

Now that I’m the proud new owner of an Epic 4G, I finally get to delve into the world of Android apps. Part of the fun is just trying out new pieces of software, so starting today we’re introducing a weekly feature where one of us here at YourTechReport will be writing up their experiences with an app that has struck our fancy.
