APPTEASERS: 15 Android games and apps worth exploring (Feb 14)

We get a lot of requests from developer seeking a review or some form of publicity for their game or app. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate even a fraction of the emails, tweets, or messages that come across our desk. The result is that readers and followers miss out on discovering new and wonderful titles.  To help alleviate the problem we have created an ongoing series of posts called APPTEASERS.

APPTEASERS is a collection of apps and games that are new to Android, recently updated, discounted, etc. Whatever the case, we think they’re worth exploring and are willing to bet that many of you would enjoy a few of them. We understand that we won’t get every single app that crosses our path but we hope to filter things a bit and pass them along to you, dear reader. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Google+ as we showcase a different app each day.
