Sitdown at Spacetime: The Making of Arcane Legends

by: Joshua MunozJanuary 14, 2013

Spacetime Studios’ office is a beautiful place, but you’d miss it if you didn’t know it was there. Housed in one of the tall, white office buildings that line the highways in Austin, it remains a well-hidden gem from the outside world, where ideas and games and coding all symbiotically co-exist, and hits are made.

I’m lucky enough to arrive just as CEO Gary Gattis is signing for a package, and we exchange small talk before he goes back inside. We’ve met before, but the last time I was here was more than a year ago, and Spacetime was in a smaller office then. They’ve grown, just like their library of titles, and as such, have moved [...]

Locale: Condition-based Android awareness, automagically automated [video]

by: Joshua MunozJanuary 6, 2013

I love making my phone work for me. Whether it’s using Navigation to get me from place-to-place, tapping NFC tags to run custom processes, or just tapping into the power of Google Now for powerful voice search, my phone is usually at my fingertips.

That being said, sometimes there are things I don’t want to have to worry about. Turning Wi-fi on or off, for instance, or making sure my volume is always at an appropriate level, are things I’d rather not waste mental resources on.

For that, (and a whole other slew of options), I turn to Locale, by two forty four a.m. An oldie but a goodie, come check out what makes Locale such a staple of [...]

Epic Raiders: Anime inspired fantasy gaming at the swipe of a finger

by: Joshua MunozJanuary 5, 2013

Sometimes you just need to do something epic, right? Well, fortunately, an epic adventure lays in the palm of your hand (or hands, if you choose a tablet) in the form of Epic Raiders.

Epic Raiders puts you in control of some staples of the fantasy genre (the knight and priest, to start), battling hordes of enemies, building out talent tress, acquiring ever better armor for the upcoming task, and doing so will full touch control.

Join me after the break to see Epic Raiders in action.

Tweet Lanes: A truly Holo-themed Twitter experience, miles ahead of the rest

by: Joshua MunozJanuary 4, 2013

I love Holo, I really do. When Google unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich to the world, I was instantly smitten with how clean and cool it looked, so when I discovered Tweet Lanes, I was smitten yet again.

Developed my Chris Lacy, (the developer of Action Launcher), it strictly adheres to Android design guidelines, runs like a champ, and introduces some cool new enhancements, too.

Join me after the break and find out why Tweet Lanes is my Twitter client of choice.

Phorus Play-Fi Speaker Review

by: Joshua MunozJanuary 4, 2013

Phorus has a solid speaker in the Play-Fi, but can it compete?

Ask people to list off wireless speaker systems they can control with their phone, and you’re probably going to get a single answer: Sonos. A new challenger has approached, by way of the Phorus Play-Fi, and they’re looking to take on the established name in the franchise by putting out quality wireless speakers of their own. Their big selling point? Total support for Android devices via their Play-Fi app, and even going so far as to brand their products Android ready (instead of the fruity alternative) to elicit support. It’s a bold move, for certain, but does it work? Can the Play-Fi contend [...]

Don’t forget to follow your favorite Android website on Google+!

by: Joshua MunozOctober 30, 2012

It’s alright, I know sometimes we all need to be reminded. Life gets hectic, we all get busy, and we forget to do the important things. It’s no biggie.

That being said, if you’re not already following Android Authority on Google+, you should be. It’s where all the best news stories get posted, our Hangouts On-Air take place, and generally where loads of fun go down.

(And if you think it’s good now, wait until you see what we’ve got up our sleeve.)

Once you’ve done that, don’t forget to follow all the writers individually:

by: Joshua MunozOctober 22, 2012
Ever since Android saw a total revamp of it's pulldown notification system, I've been impressed. I'd always wondered, though, how could I create my own custom notifications? After doing some research, I discovered Notif. Notif allows you to create four different types of custom notification, and it does it all for free. Interested? Find out more after the break.
