Today’s Fresh Android Apps are brought to you by… Microsoft?! Yep, it’s true. Gamers can kick this week off with the official My Xbox LIVE app. Keep track of friends, achievements and the latest game releases. Also from Microsoft comes Kinectimals, the mobile version of the Xbox 360 Kinect title. Meanwhile, Android users looking to get better battery life out of their smartphones may want to try Carat and see if it can help.

iOS six months ago. Now Android gamers can join in with the fun using touchscreen controls to keep the little cubs happy.

Kinectimals also includes challenges for you to take part in. You’ll be teaching your cub tricks like sitting or jumping, and playing games with him. As you complete challenges, you’ll earn coins which you can spend to buy new things like different toys and other places where you can take him. If you already own Kinectimals on the Xbox 360, this app will let you unlock five new animals on your console.
