Google has released a new app for avid readers of digital publications. It’s Google Play Newsstand, and it combines Google Currents with app versions of magazines and other publications. We’ve also got another great app for readers of articles: Pocket, which lets you save articles and videos you find online, to be read later on your Android device. Our game offering today is Sketchpad Escape, a brickbreaker title with a hand-drawn, notebook look and tons of levels.
