I’ve stated before—only half jokingly—that I’ve never seen a movie that couldn’t have been improved by a prolonged sword fighting skeleton scene. I was thinking of Hollywood films, but this belief now includes your wedding videos, cruise vacation recaps, or whatever you happened to film on the way to school this morning.

I am looking forward to this summer’s release of Godzilla the way some people look forward to their wedding, retirement, or being released from a Turkish prison. The first time I watched the trailer, I only then fully understood why men have sons. But I’m not looking forward to the inevitable movie tie-in app. This is because it will not be good. At all.

I was pleased to learn Google has done a substantial makeover of their Gmail iOS app, and that it now supports background app refresh; ergo, your Gmail messages will be pre-fetched and synced so they’re right there when you open the app, with no more annoying pauses while you wait for your inbox to refresh. But to avail yourself of this new feature you must also turn on background app refresh and notifications (badge or any other type) for the Gmail app in your Settings.

In my mind, Darkseid’s super power will always be that when you squeeze his legs together, his fists move. Of course, in my mind, that’s the same power they all have, because everything I know about superheroes I learned from the Kenner Super Powers toy line. Hopefully, you know more, and will know what to do with the Darkseid character that’s now available exclusively in the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
This week on the Free Apps Roundup: Smash Bandits is about to be updated with a brand new mode and be renamed to Smash Bandits Racing. That’s right, they’re adding a racing mode. Smash Hit is a game that’ll let you break everything made of glass on purpose. And for the Math geeks among us, Calculords is a math and card based game that will really challenge your skills.
Aqueduct Flow for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has a simple, but engaging, premise; you have to connect spigots to drains using blocks with various pipe shapes which must be used so that none of the water leaks out. In other words, you can’t have an open pipe that connects to nothing.
