Almost a year and a half ago, the Grooveshark app for Android was removed from the Google Play Store. Today though, Grooveshark is back to Google Play. What changed Google’s minds? A recent decision in a New York suite that pitted Universal Music against Escape Media. Universal claimed that the safe harbor provisions in the DMCA didn’t apply to recordings before 1972, but the judge didn’t agree with the argument.

Google Now

Google Now might be in its infancy, but it’s still a really useful part of Google Search. Now it’s getting even better with a new update to Google Search in the Google Play store.

Jelly Bean users now get a few cool new functions added to the Google Now experience. One of these changes has to do with movie showtimes. Google Now will populate information on the movie that you search for, such as where it’s playing and at what times, it can even send you alerts if you are near a specific theater. Another similar feature comes to sports, you can now manually select your favorite sports team and a card will be updated with information about the team, updating in real-time. Last but not least, Google Now is getting very useful public service alert capabilities. Snow coming to your area? Perhaps a tropical storm? Google Now will gather information that could affect the area in which you live, giving you updates and alerts as they develop.

Blood-and-Glory-Legend

Although it was only a few days ago that we saw the first ever teaser trailer for Blood & Glory: Legend, Glu Mobile has already made the new action game for Android available in Google Play. As expected, the bloody arena-combat title is up for grabs for free, and has every chance to follow on the successful footsteps of the first game in the Blood & Glory series from last year.

Dropbox Galaxy Camera Note 2

By now, it’s no longer out of the ordinary for manufacturers to bundle their phones with free online storage as a way to lure customers. The Samsung Galaxy S3, for instance, comes with a free 50GB Dropbox cloud storage. So we’re not really surprised to see the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera getting the same treatment.

HBO-GO-tablet

The HBO Go is the perfect app for those who need to have access to the network’s original series wherever they are.
