This week's edition of the Android Apps Weekly show is sponsored by Paralign! This is a fun little social app that lets you express random thoughts and ideas anonymously. The app will also help you track your thoughts and ideas so you can get a better view of yourself over time.
The interface is wicked simple to use and you should be able to open it up and get to writing in no time flat. You'll also get to check out the thoughts and ideas of other anonymous users which you can like and show support for. Overall, it's a pretty fun little experience and did we mention that it's completely free? Give it a shot and show your support for Android Apps Weekly!

Headlines this week
  • Samsung's Milk Music was finally put to rest this last week. As of September 22nd, the service is no longer available for download or use. This was announced a few months back and we've all essentially just been waiting for it. Anyone who used Milk Music will get a 14-day free trial for Slacker Radio since that's the service that powered Milk Music anyway. It's still available in China and South Korea for now, but it won't last forever there either.
  • ChromeOS finally received full support for Android apps and the Google Play Store this last week. It's been included in certain builds of the dev channel and beta builds, but now it's finally rolling out to stable builds as well. Only a couple of devices can use it right now, including the R11 and the Chromebook Flip. It should roll out to more devices over the coming weeks and months.
  • Yahoo sent out an email this week letting everybody know that their database was hacked again. This time the hackers got away with 500 million account passwords and various other account details. Yahoo is urging everyone to change their passwords immediately and even changing passwords to their other services as a precaution. The silver lining is that no banking info got taken so that's good news we guess.
  • Google is formally rolling out AMP, or accelerated mobile pages, to everyone all around the world starting this week. For those who don't know, AMP is a project to help pages load much more quickly and take up far less data than their non-AMP counterparts. Google boasts that they've done up 600 million AMP sites in 232 regions. The only other thing of note is that this won't change the search results at all so you'll still see the same searches.
  • The latest Humble Bundle is now live! This time around the bundle is based around Artifex Mundi games for both PC and mobile. You can pay whatever you want and get three games, beat the average and get six total games, or pay more than $5 and get every game in the bundle. There are some good titles here and it's also a great way to donate to charity and play some games at the same time.
  • A study was released late last week that showed that 13% of all users downloaded 50% of all apps. That makes a lot of sense because us early adopters can and will frolic from one app to the next to see if it's any good. Another interesting stat is that 49% of people surveyed for this study didn't download a single app during the survey period. On average, people interested in apps download about 3.5 per month.
