Basically… Putting Android on everything. When I first stumbled upon this, I must admit, I was very excited. I saw a guy offering something different with 2 of my most favourite things mixed together. Android and drinking beer. If he could so...[Read More]

Life-Spot – Kickstarter

Life-Spot – Kickstarter Lets face it, mobile devices are here to stay, my dad would say otherwise (he still rocks a pager). So this means we are in constant need to charge them. There’s nothing worse then when an iPhone or iPad owner comes round my living space and they need to charge their device. As an Android user, i’m not going to be able to help. The same goes for a working ...[Read More]

App Permissions & Fake Apps

  A friend of the site contacted me yesterday regarding some fake games and applications he found on Google Play.

Now that the latest update has been available for a few days, I thought I’d share what I found new or updated in this version. Possibly not a complete list but what I’ve came across since installing the factory images once released.  I did a fresh install and full wipe to unsure a trouble free experience and so far things have been running great.

Google Play, commenting and feedback – Editorial

Google Play, commenting and feedback I’ll be honest, I’m not sure why but I very rarely leave reviews on Google Play. I honestly don’t know why but from today, I will be more keen to. I’m sure most Google Plus users have seen which apps/games/icon packs, I’ve plused. I usually just do this after I download whatever it is I’m looking for but if it turns out not t...[Read More]

The apps we can’t live without… – Series (Luke)

The apps we can’t live without… – Series (Luke) As someone who flashes a new ROM on my phone about ten times a month, I end up culling a lot of apps I procured over time and just try and install the bare minimum. I do tend to install a lot of root apps, but I have managed to only include one in my list. This list contains the apps that are always on my phone, they are the first ones installed on e...[Read More]

The apps we can’t live without… – Series, (Ste)

  The apps we can’t live without   We thought it would be cool to share which applications we can’t live without when we get a new device. Or setting up after wiping or factory resetting. (Such are the joys of crackflashing.) This will be a short series in which all the team members tell us what and why they just can’t live without them. It might be fun to correspond between ...[Read More]

Google Play Game Services. Some thoughts.

I hadn’t really meant to write an editorial but felt the need to share my thoughts on the new service Google rolled out recently. I’m checking every title now to see if it has real-time multiplayer, leaderboards, achievements and cloud saves.  As I check, I see more and more adding the new features, which is awesome. We haven’t really seen many killer real-time multiplayer games ...[Read More]
