Although OnLive is most often the first company that pops out when I think of cloud games and software, that doesn’t mean that its dominance in the cloud market is bound to last for eons.
While a few weeks back we were reporting that Nvidia’s Kepler architecture will soon be powering up alternatives to OnLive’s cloud gaming solution, today I’m here to talk about nivio, an alternative to the controversial OnLive Desktop service.
Basically, nivio allows you to access your Windows desktop, as well as apps and your personal data from any Android device, iPad, PC, or any other HTML 5-enabled device (yes, it also works on Chromebooks). Thus, you will be able to work on Corel [...]
A big point of consternation for consumers considering the HTC One X as their next smartphone was the lack of an expandable memory storage option.
While some explained that the 23GB additional free Dropbox cloud storage more than made up for it, the use of microSD expansion is obviously preferred. Another disappointing factor about most cloud storage services currently available is that accessing some files such as videos required you to download the entire video first, which meant you needed the additional storage space anyway.
With the latest update from Dropbox, there is finally some great news on that front, at least if you’re part of the 7% who use [...]
In addition to that exaggeratedly priced $12.5 billion Motorola acquisition, which has been recently approved by Chinese regulators – the last obstacle Google had to overcome to go through with the merger – Google has made a variety of much cheaper acquisitions lately. But to what end? What is Google planning? Are these recent purchases related to Android? Are the related to Google+ or other Google products?
Since Android is a core product for Google’s long-term business strategy – but so is Google+ for that matter – it’s easy to assume that any purchase the company is making is somehow related to either product, if not both. So let’s get a [...]
Augment Reality (AR) became a realization way back in the 70’s, when Morton Heilig created the Sensorama, a device that can render 3D images, sound, wind, as well as aromas, to create a virtual reality for the user.
Fast forward to the present age–augmented reality is now a possible feat and almost anyone can enjoy the thrill and excitement just by having an Android smartphone. Have you ever wished that you could experience augmented reality? Here are some of the best augmented reality games that you can experience firsthand on your smartphone.
WARNING: Some of the games featured on this list contain violence, blood, gore, and such other content that may [...]
For a company whose mantra is “It’s in the game”, Electronic Arts hasn’t quite been in the game when it comes to tapping into the enormous potential of the freemium games market.
This was actually admitted by EA’s head of mobile and social studios Nick Earl. During an interview with AllThingsD, Earl candidly said that it took the company a long time to move over from the premium games model to the freemium one.
A change of strategy is in the cards, as EA plans to make freemium games its main bread and butter. “There will be a few one-time download games in the future, but they are such the exception, and the norm will be freemium games,” Earl explained. [...]
We have enough app stores ready to deliver all the digital content we’d be interested in enjoying on our mobile devices, so we don’t really need another one, do we? That’s rather a rhetorical question, especially since Facebook has finally launched its own app store, conveniently called App Center.
However, the store, available at www.facebook.com/appcenter, is not a store in the true sense of the word. Instead, it’s more like a list of “high-quality” apps available on Android and iOS, which Facebook wants you to discover. In case you suspect these apps require some sort of deep, or not-so-deep, Facebook integration, then you’d be right. [...]
Although Shazam is probably the first app that comes to mind when talking about music recognition services, SoundHound, its main competitor, has progressed immensely as of late, and is now catching up with the more established Shazam.
SoundHound’s lower price point, friendlier user interface, and regular updates on Android have brought the app a lot of attention over the past year. The app’s popularity should grow even further now that the 5.0 version is live in Google Play.
A “stunning new homescreen layout, gorgeous album art and high-resolution photos of artists, and an even more user-friendly user interface” are the freshly updated app’s strongest points, [...]
EA’s Need for Speed is, by far, the most popular PC racing video game franchise of the past decade or so. But the Android versions of the series have either been released a bit too late or they simply haven’t been as good as the big screen titles.
That might well change with the latest NFS installment, Most Wanted (2012 version), which has just been confirmed as hitting every gaming platform possible, including Android, at the same time. The launch will happen on October 30 and will see the fresh new racing game made available on Android, as well as PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and iOS.
The details on the game’s storyline, graphics, and gameplay are scarce at [...]
Foursquare Labs have finally released a major overhaul to their popular check-in application, foursquare. The app is no longer (just) about checking in at your favorite places, as the developers have “re-imagined the entire app to make it even easier for you and your friends to share and catalog your experiences and find new places to go.”
foursquare 5.0 is available for download from Google Play right now, ready to improve your whole check in experience. In addition to let you check in whenever you arrive at a location that supports foursquare, the new app version will now let you discover interesting places around you and see the notes [...]
