A roundup of brand new and notable apps for Android smartphones and tablets:

Marvel Unlimited is Marvel's subscription service for its digital comics, with its app having now been ported from iOS to Android. The service costs $9.99 a month in the US, although it's available worldwide.

Say the Same Thing
Say the Same Thing comes on like a cross between Words With Friends and Draw Something, but it's nothing to do with those games' publisher Zynga. Instead, it's an official game from band OK Go, which gets you and a friend to enter random words, then guess words that connect them until you both, yes, "say the same thing".

Grand Theft Auto games have been on Android for a while, but now another famously-controversial franchise has come roaring onto the platform. Carmageddon is the work of Stainless Games, and revives the race'n'wreck 'em up from the late 1990s. Your job is to race 28 opponents while using your car as a weapon against rivals, police and innocent pedestrians in equal measure.

There are a number of startups working on innovative ways to show the weather in apps. OpenSignal's newie tries to detect it too: part of "the most ambitious weather crowdsourcing project in the world". The idea: the app uses various smartphone sensors to record and share local atmospheric readings, while showing you key data.

Snoop Lion's Snoopify!
And from weather apps to a man who knows a lot about, ahem, drizzle. Snoop Lion's new release is a photo-sharing app called Snoopify, covered in more detail earlier in May. It's about taking photos, customising them with Snoop-themed virtual stickers, and sharing on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Blitz Brigade
Blitz Brigade is the latest freemium game from publisher Gameloft: a multiplayer first-person shooter for up to 12 players at once to compete over the network. It sees you waging war with more than 100 weapons and five character classes — soldier, gunner, medic, sniper and stealth. GNS
