It seems only 77 days ago Angry Birds Space was released by Rovio. Wait, it was 77 days (or so) ago. In that short period of time, gamers have been scooping up copies of the intergalactic tales of the temperamental birds like crazy. Now Rovio has gleefully announced on its Twitter account that the game has passed 100 million downloads.
Now that the 100 million download marks have been broken, we dare not wonder how high those birds can soar – because not even space is the limit.
And if playing on your mobile devices isn’t enough, it has been reported that Angry Birds will be making its way to more gaming consoles. Rovio reportedly will be working [...]
Greatly popular automotive navigation systems manufacturer TomTom has had an iOS-special nav app available in Apple’s App Store for almost three years. Unfortunately, the app didn’t make its way to Android devices as well, even though we’ve had numerous promises from TomTom over the last couple of years or so.
Another promise has just been made by the Dutch-based company’s officials in an exclusive talk with the guys at Pocket-lint. According to TomTom co-founder Peter-Frans Pauwels, an exclusive Android app will be launching “fairly soon”.
“Summer season is important for us” said TomTom’s co-founder, adding that he can “confirm the app is real” and that “iOS [...]

Newer phones often mean better specs, and one of the things that people certainly look forward to are the cameras that phones are equipped with. Some phones are equipped with cameras that beat actual digital cameras, so more and more shutterbugs have started leaving their clunky tools at home and just indulging their shutter-happy finger with their Android devices. The best camera, after all, is the one with us.
Sometimes, when all the right things fall into place, we get the perfect shot and you can proudly show it off to the world without even editing it. And then there are times when things just don’t work in your favor. There’s nothing more frustrating [...]
There are over half a million apps available on the Google Play Store, spanning every category possible. Just like with anything else software-related, Android apps have their share of bugs and glitches, and some performance improvements are required over time.
Google tends to listen to consumer requirements and requests, and has been quite constant with their updates, frequently pushing bug fixes and occasionally introducing new features. Today, Google released a slew of minor updates for some of its major apps: Google Maps, Shopper, and Chrome for Android.
The updates include:

For quite some time now, the HBO GO service has been available for the Android platform. Unfortunately, the app has not supported any Android tablet so far, even if the app was updated to run on ICS.

Google confirmed today what we already suspected, that the Google Maps offline feature, currently available to Android device users in Labs only, is going to get a lot better at some point in the near future.

Hardcore gamers are most likely aware that this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, takes place in Las Vegas this week, therefore we’re being bombarded with gaming-related news from left and right. In fact, Samsung decided it’s time to become a “major force in the video game industry” and released a press release to announce its Samsung Cloud Gaming project developed in partnership with Gaikai.
Before you ask, Samsung Cloud Gaming will be available only to 2012 Samsung LED 7000 series Smart TV owners, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see the South Korean company adapt it for other devices and even Android use at some point in the [...]
Among the many mobile game developers, Gameloft is among the most consistent in coming up with games one after another. And mind you, most if not all of those games are not run-of-the-mill but well designed and good looking games. And so it seems that Gameloft is on a roll again preparing a game for Android, namely Asphalt 7.
For those into adrenalin-pumping racing games, I’m pretty sure you’ve played one or two games in the Asphalt series. Asphalt 6 for Android was a big hit and we’re pretty sure, its follow-up entitled Asphalt 7: Heat will surely be a runaway hit as well. Asphalt 7 will take you into the racing circuits in Shanghai, Hawaii, London, [...]
