We’re always happy when smash iOS hits make their way to the Google Play Store, and another great one has been added recently. Subway Surfers, a game that ha enjoyed over 25 million downloads in Apple’s App Store, is finally available for Android in the Google Play Store. The game features never-ending chases as you play as Jake, a tagger who has unsurprisingly attracted some unwanted attention and must run from the police. Jake’s escape route twists and turns through a VERY active subway system.
Apple fans are eager to get their hands on the iPhone 5, released Friday, adding to the lines that are snaking around the block at Apple stores around the world. The lines have become a familiar sight at nearly every iPhone and iPad launch — it’s not uncommon now for line-sitters to be raising money for charity, or to be hired by another person who wants the latest gadget but doesn’t want to …
We were looking forward to Rayman Jungle Run being launched for Android yesterday, but that never happened. The iOS version launched — earlier than expected, too — so we were a bit vexed to find out that the Google Play Store was devoid of good ol’ fashioned Rayman goodness. Ubisoft says the game needed to be delayed because more time was needed to optimize the game for as many Android devices as possible. It’s a plausible excuse considering just how many different devices are out there, and a one week wait isn’t much to play one of the more exciting franchises in the gaming world. Users can find hopefully find Rayman Jungle Run in the Google Play Store September 27th, and if iOS pricing is anything to go buy it shouldn’t cost you more than $3 to download

When it comes to Android users, there’s a whole lotta benchmarking junkies out there who love to pit the “performance” of their device against others via the many benchmarking apps available. Today, Qualcomm’s in-house benchmarking application, Vellamo, has just been up dated in the Play Store and it brings with a more robust and complete set of benchmarks for users to test. No longer just a web browsing benchmark, Vellamo now features all new system-level benchmarks testing everything from CPU performance, to networking capabilities via simulated 3G/4G/WiFi, HTLM5, and of course, web browsing. I’ve said it before, benchmarks are never a real-world interpretation of the speed an end user will experience with any device — but gosh damn they’re sure fun to run, aren’t they?
