How to unlock Google’s newest Easter egg: ‘BeanFlinger’ daydream

Thursday 15th of November 2012 /
If you have a Nexus 4 or a Galaxy Nexus that has been updated to Android 4.2, then now is your chance to unlock one of Google’s hidden Easter eggs within the OS. If you recall, Android 4.2 offers a new feature called “daydreams” which is essentially a screen-saver type of function. There’s five stock daydreams available, but there’s a hidden fifth one that’s unlockable if you access the Jelly Bean “Easter egg” animation where you repeatedly tap on the Android version within settings.//Once that’s done, the “BeanFlinger” daydream will be unlocked. You’ll be able to find it under Settings > Display > Daydreams. If you have an Android 4.2 device that supports Daydreams, then this should be available to you.As always, have fun!» See more articles by Macky Evangelista//

New to android - questions on software version

Sunday 08th of April 2012 /
Hello! I'm an apple junkie since day one of the iPhone and just couldn't resist the One X so here I am. Couple questions though...Mine had different English language options, all with Asia countries, I picked Singapore. Is this going to affect anything? Says Play Store rather than Android Market but guessing this isn't a big deal?My software info is as follows:Android: 4.0.3Software number 1.19.707.1I've seen others post about software 1.26, I've tried running software update but it says I'm up to date. What gives?I've been getting horrible battery life. I'm talking losing 50% after an hour of use (playing with settings, downloading a couple apps and web browsing). I restarted it earlier today and it feels to be running cooler and a bit better now. Any advice here? I'm wondering if the software version has something to do with this? It's back on the charger for the 3rd time today.Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Easter egg animation

Thursday 28th of June 2012 /
Like ICS, Honeycomb and Gingerbread before it, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean features a neat little "Easter egg" animation within the "About phone" and "About tablet" pages. On a Jelly Bean device like the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 7, head to Settings > About phone and tap repeatedly on "Android version: 4.1" until you see the picture of the happy Jelly Bean guy filling the screen. Then long press on the middle of the screen, and you'll get a screen filled with more Jelly Beans, which you can fling around using your finger.You'll also note the candy cane among the field of Jelly Beans. It doesn't always show up, but we've noticed it a couple of times already. We're not sure exactly why that's there, but it only seems to appear occasionally. (If you've got any wild theories, share 'em in the comments.)Of course, all this stuff is still functionally useless, but it's a pretty cool visual treat regardless.

Easter Egg - Tap on Software Version

Monday 20th of January 2014 /
Perhaps this has long since been discovered. On my VZW S4 with Android 4.3, if you tap repeatedly on the software version panel under the About Phone menu, you get an animated jelly bean. Then, hitting the menu button bring up a screenful of floating jelly beans.
