[Price: Free / $4.99 per month]
CloudMagic received a bit update this week that has had some mixed reactions. They have started a new subscription service for $4.99 per month that users can get in on to access new features and functionality. For now the feature list is pretty short but the developer says it will get longer as time goes. Also, all the features of the free version remain free but we still remain dubious about spending $60 per year on an email client.

Field Trip update

Camu, the popular photo editing app, makes its way to Google Play

Camu

If you’ve ever poked around the Play Store for more than a few minutes, you’d know that there are tonsof photo editing apps out there. So how do you differentiate between all of them? Perhaps an all-in-one photography app is worth your time. The app is called Camu, and it combines camera functionality, photo editing, and provides somewhat of a photo messaging platform all within one app. Camu was an iOS exclusive for quite some time and racked up 3 million downloads on the platform.

Camu aims to offer a bit more than the run-of-the-mill photo editing app by giving you the ability to take photos and edit them either before or after it’s taken. Using the apps’ “live” filters, you can make your adjustments before the photo is taken and even make your own photo collages live, instead of waiting until after the fact. You can, of course, blur, zoom, add text or add a slew of other enhancements like we see in any other photo editing app. There’s also a unique auto mode setting that’s designed for selfies. While in this mode, the app won’t take the picture unless it detects no movement is going on. Where this app differentiates itself from other photography apps is by opening up sharing options to other users. You can share photos to anyone you know who uses Camu, as well as the usual social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.

Crossy Road finally makes its way to Google Play

The day has finally come, folks. After months of being available exclusively on iOS and the Amazon Appstore, Crossy Road has finally hopped into the Google Play Store. The game takes most of its inspiration from the classic arcade game, Frogger, and offers up a unique block-like world to play in. Just like Frogger, your goal is to make your way across roads, rivers and train tracks while dodging cars, trucks and trying not to fall in the water. Collect as many coins as you can to digitally purchase more characters. If you’d like to take a step further, you can buy new characters instead of waiting to randomly win them.

The best part? To celebrate the launch on the Google Play Store, the developers have included the bugdroid as a playable character. We have no idea when the character will come up if you’re trying to win it randomly, though. If you don’t want to wait, the little Android mascot is available for $0.99.

Crossy Road is available for free in the Play Store. While the game does offer a few in-app purchases, they aren’t pushy or in-your-face like many other games out there. Seriously, this is one of the most addicting games we’ve ever played, so you should probably check this one out. Follow the Play Store link below and start hopping away!
