by Ian Black

With all the free cloud storage out there, you may never need to keep a file locally on your Android ever again. In today’s fresh list, LogMeIn launches a new storage service and app called Cubby.

Embarrass yourself by breaking out in uncontrolled laughter in public when you download The Daily Show Headlines and have some destructive fun playing Demolition Inc. THD.

Cubby (Free)

LogMeIn just fired a warning shot into the realm of cloud storage with its introduction of Cubby. This Android app provides access to 5GB of free storage that you can use for documents, music, videos, and images. The app makes it easy to upload stuff right from your Android device or access things you’ve already uploaded.

Create one or more cubbies and set some to public access and keep others private. Here’s something cool – you can give your friends permission to access one or more of your cubbies so that you can collaborate or share the storage. LogMeIn says the storage is so secure that even they can’t access it.

The Daily Show Headlines (Free)

Sure it’s funny, but for many people, this show is their sole news source. This is the first official app from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and it delivers the “headlines” (read: a stand-up routine riff on the daily news in the guise of a news anchor report) segment from the show for the last two weeks.

In love with Jon Stewart? Then use the app's other features which include a list of upcoming guests, schedules for the next week of broadcasts, and the ability to set alerts to warn you when the show in on the air. Look for special “app only” video segments from the cast and share your faves over Facebook.

Demolition Inc. THD ($3.99)

Mike has a challenging job. He is in charge of a demolition crew. The thing is, Mike’s an alien and his job is to destroy the major metropolitan areas of earth with the craziest set of deconstruction tools you’ve ever seen. You must help him complete the task.

Use the tractor beam to control vehicles and ram them into buildings and other objects. Drive a massive wrecking ball through the center of town. Lay down goo to make cars slide out of control and springboards to bounce trucks into skyscrapers. To complete the mission, drop a thermonuclear cow.
