If you want a new angle on the perpetual-running genre, Pocket Climber is a worthy purchase, with an excellent swipe control system, randomly generated obstacles, and plenty of challenges. Read the review.

TuneIn Radio Pro for Android

TuneIn Radio Pro for Android

As a total package, TuneIn Radio Pro for Android is one of the best streaming apps we've seen. With its DVR-like capabilities, it is well worth 99 cents. Read the review.

Digital Storm x17

It's not the prettiest laptop out there, but the Digital Storm x17 is ahead of the competition at providing maximum power at a minimum (but still significant) price. Read the review.

Motorola's lovely new Droid Razr HD is fast and thin, but its weak camera should make mobile shutterbugs wary. Read the review.

LG Optimus G

LG Optimus G

With its speedy innards, LTE data speeds, and stunning screen, the LG Optimus G is one of LG's best handsets so far, but it can't escape its weak battery and camera. Read the review.

Razer Blade

Razer Blade

Faster and better than before, the improved Razer Blade is a better gaming laptop in an impressively thin form, but you're paying for design over practicality. Read the review.
