App News this week
A new television service called Aereo was released this week that lets people stream TV to their devices. The app is free but the service will cost you. Meanwhile, BBM for Android was finally released as was Dead Trigger 2. A new contextual lock screen service called Cover for Android that is currently email invite only. If you like YouTube, you’ll be happy to know that the latest YouTube update is showing signs of some great new features coming out soon. Check out the video above for the full scoop.

First up this week is Final Fantasy 5. A slew of updates over the last few weeks have increased stability and squashed some bugs. Square Enix is currently selling the game for 33% off which usually isn’t a big deal but this game costs $15 so if you want it for $5 off, now is a good time to do it.
Plants vs Zombies 2 was officially released awhile back but only in 2 countries. Now the rollout has begun to release it everywhere. If you’ve been waiting for this one,
it’s finally available to almost everyone. Also it’s free and we love free things.
Kinda hard for this game not to be in our trending apps list this week. Dead Trigger was a game that helped revolutionize the shooter genre on Android
and Dead Trigger 2 will only continue that strong tradition. We already talked about it a lot earlier so just go download it.
Yes, Blackberry Messenger is, in fact, an app you can’t miss this week. The once-popular messaging platform is on Android now and it’s worth checking out if you haven’t yet. People say the platform
will never last but the line to join is so long that people are still waiting for their email invites, so it’ll be interesting to see how it does.
A last moment edition to our Google Play Weekly show is the latest Call of Duty game, called Strike Force. The game features a whole new first and third person experience where you can switch
between the two modes on the fly. Couple that with a bunch of other new stuff and that makes the game worth checking out, even with that $7 price tag.
