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]

Editorial: Why a Nexus S4?

  As usual there were a lot of rumours around what might be announced at this year’s Google I/O, and as usual most of them where wrong. Since we’ve yet to see any impact of Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility, there was a strong rumour that we might see some confirmation of the fabled Motorola X phone. There was even some talk of a Nexus 5. However it wasn’t unti...[Read More]

Message in a Bottle

I’m old. I have grey hair, and at least two small people call me ‘Grandad’. When I say ‘old’, I mean ‘old compared to you’ – who almost certainly can’t remember when SIM cards were the size of credit cards, T9 was mind-blowing witchcraft, and when you had to pull your ariel out for better reception. In short, I remember when SMS text messages w...[Read More]

HTC One after a week of heavy use

There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of reviews of the HTC One on the web – but that’s not what you’re looking at here. What I’m hoping to do is give those of you who are on the fence about the HTC One a shove in one direction or another. So, what were my concerns BEFORE I bought my HTC One? Will the battery be good enough? This was the main reason I sold my Nexus 4. I ...[Read More]

Google Keep

For the last couple of years, I’ve been using 2 different apps to create & store my notes.  In Android, it’s Gnotes.  In Chrome, it’s Scratchpad.  Gnotes syncs with my Google account. The notes can appear in 3 places: The app, the web app, and in Gmail within a folder called Notes. The Scratchpad Chrome app is a bit different. Notes made here appear in Drive, which is where t...[Read More]

Did Google Ever Really Believe In Google Reader?

It’s been a few days now, since Google announced they would be shutting down a few of their services in order to focus on fewer products.  One of those was Google Reader. It was a service used by many on a daily basis, ranging from amateurs to professionals.  From all the articles, forum threads, and social network posts over the last few days, one may assume that Google Reader had a much la...[Read More]

First Impressions Of The Samsung Galaxy S4

Opinions will undoubtedly vary with the Droid Horizon team, but this is my personal take on the yesterday’s Samsung unveiling of the Galaxy S4. The Hype and Unpacked Event The teaser videos with that Jeremy Maxwell kid and his glowing box was beyond lame.  This kid is Samsung’s Wesley Crusher or Jar Jar Brinks (depending on your preference).  After watching this kid on stage and listen...[Read More]

[APP] App Lock- Added Security For Your Device

    I’ve been on the fence about securing my device.  On the one hand, of course I want security.  But on the other hand, I want convenience.  Think about how many times a day we check our devices.  For me, that could be a hundred times or more!  Sometimes, a main lockscreen just gets in the way.  App Lock allows you to lock individual apps.     Sometimes I let others use...[Read More]
