Google needs to tackle its app discovery problem

by: Simon HillApril 23, 2014
Android has really matured as a platform, but why is app discovery still such a problem? It’s not just that it’s difficult for indie developers to get noticed, the user experience in the Play Store is awful. The search functionality is poor and there’s a lack of curation.

Jet Set Radio grinds its way to Android devices

by: Adam BushNovember 30, 2012
Sega has released a new game for us that should be received with open arms. For some, this will be all about the nostalgia. For others, a brand new experience filled with cell shaded graphics, police dodging, and tagging anything in sight with just enough spray paint. Welcome, to Jet Set Radio!

Google, why don’t you apply your search prowess to the Play Store?

by: Gary SimsOctober 22, 2012
Back in the day Google's search engine made directory type sites (like Yahoo!) obsolete because now everything could be found using a search tern, but the Google Play Store is essentially a directory of apps. Every time I use it to try and find an app I think I am back in the mid-90s. Surely Google must be able to take the mighty power of its search engine and combine it with some clever technology (like the bits that power Google News) and come up with a better way for Android users to find apps. The fact that services like AppBrain exist means that Google has more it could do.

Android’s market share in Spain rises to astounding 84%

by: LucianJuly 12, 2012

In the US, Android’s market share has stabilized somewhere around 50% of the smartphone market, mainly because the iPhone’s market share has grown when the iPhone became available on Sprint. It’s also because other companies such has RIM still have a pretty significant market share in US despite the corporation’s seemingly imminent buyout vs. demise endgame scenario.

The iPhone appeared for the first time in US, it’s from a US company, it had the most marketing in US, and lastly, we’re talking about Apple here. It’s a company that is loved by a much bigger share of the [...]

Bump for Android now lets you “magically” move photos from phone to PC

by: Arnold ZafraMay 25, 2012

Do you remember that cool Android app that lets you transfer photos from one Android phone to another by simply, well bumping two Android phones together? Right, it’s the app called Bump.

If you liked the idea behind the app, wait until you hear what we have to report. The Bump for Android app was just updated to version 3.3.0 and, guess what, the app has one new feature that greatly extends its capabilities. That feature is the ability to “magically” transfer photos from your phone to your PC.

What’s great about this new feature is the fact that you don’t have to install anything, except, of course, the app on your phone. After [...]

Amazon Appstore update now lets you test drive apps before buying

by: Arnold ZafraMay 23, 2012

I have to admit that, when Amazon launched its own store for Android apps, I was among those who asked why Amazon created its own app store. It all became clearer a while later, when Jeff Bezos’ company launched its own Android-powered device, the Kindle Fire.

Helped by the amazing popularity of the Fire, the Amazon Appstore managed to survive alongside Google Play and other third-party stores, and more so, to thrive. Continuing to slowly build up its Appstore, Amazon recently introduced a new feature, which might just give it an edge over Google Play – the platform now lets you “test drive” an app before you buy it.

The new feature has [...]
