The Android Notification bar is not a billboard, so stop advertising there [Opinion]
Thursday 11th of August 2011
My notification window reveals 19 unread Gmail messages, a missed call, prompts to update my apps in the Android Market, and – gasp – an advertisement.Suddenly, Gun Bros has taken it upon itself to pop-up in my Notifications window and tell me that I should play the game. It’s apparently not enough that the game has already sucked up many hours of my “I could have been working” afternoons. Now it’s pestering me to play the game during my “I’m actually trying to work, so don’t tempt me” afternoons, too?This is definitely at the bottom of the “world issues” totem, but I cannot stand when an app intrudes on the sanctity of my notification bar. As someone who receives dozens of emails, instant messages, and notifications from apps per day, the last thing I want to see is an advertisement clouding the stream – even if it’s from an app that I love.It’s tough to come down on Gun Bros because the “ad” is a promo encouraging me to play the game at a certain time and receive double the points

Wednesday 06th of March 2013
Getting bored of playing your collection of classic 8-bit and 16 bit games using emulators on your Android device? You might be interested to hear about a new game that takes you back to the good old days where gameplay trumps graphics, though not always necessarily so.We’re talking about Bionfly, the latest side-scrolling action game starring Mario’s robo cousin from theOmenbit that is now available on Google Play.One of the game’s USPs is its retro-looking pixel art graphics. In other words, you’ll be looking at a pretty simple presentation with no fancy 3D effects. But hey, it doesn’t make Bionfly any less interesting or easy to play, what with 20 tough levels that you have to complete. The objective is to collect the scattered Onyx gems as fast as you can while tackling enemies and navigating through some perilous landscapes.As for the best part, Bionfly is a free download from Google’s front store. We’ve embedded the video above so you can check the game out before hitting the link below. Do you dig the lo-fi game soundstrack?

Puzzle platformer To-Fu: The Trials of Chi is available in Google Play
Wednesday 27th of June 2012
Having been released on iOS for a while, we pretty much knew that To-Fu: The Trials of Chi would make his appearance on Android sooner or later. Thankfully, it has happened sooner rather than later and you can start playing the fun and quirky puzzle platform game right now if you go over to Google Play and download it for free.The DevolverDigital-developed game has enjoyed a fair amount of success over on iOS and almost all the online reviews praise it for being fun, easy to understand and master. That being said, you shouldn’t expect to be treated with some stunning HD visuals or an overly complex story-line.The game’s protagonist is an elastic piece of tofu (I know, it sounds ridiculous, but it’s actually a lot of fun), which you’ll have to safely get to the Fortune Kitty after passing “the trials of Chi”. There are 100 levels to be completed and, while the first few may seem a bit too simple and minimal, towards the game’s end, you will surely be hitting the “restart level” button many, many times.What you have to do in “To-Fu” is stretch, flip and sli

The Samsung Galaxy Brand is Starting to Eclipse the Android Brand; is Google in Trouble?
Monday 04th of February 2013
Our very own Randy Arrowood predicted Samsung’s coming downfall not too long ago, in his Samsung’s Rise Leading to Their Downfall series (links included below).It’s a highly recommended series for anyone interested in exploring the future implications of Samsung’s total domination of the mobile market. Arrowood seems to think that Samsung’s primary intentions to dominate the android market, will in turn bring about its downfall. The tricky part is deciphering when this collapse will occur. There are lots of events going on behind the scenes, specifically the Apple and Samsung lawsuits currently underway.Samsung’s Rise Leading to Their Downfall?Part 1Part 2Part 3More recently, a strategy consultant, for the Enders Analysis firm, used market data to predict that Samsung’s success is soon going to cloud the entire Android brand. Evan collected the data, using Google Trends, which shows that the Samsung Galaxy brand is starting to overshadow the Android brand in terms of consumer awareness.Many of you Samsung fans are probably wondering why this is a problem.
