If you've entered two of these contests already and you're still naked from the waist up, here's your last chance. As before, we're giving away ten obviously-fanboyish shirts. Today's is the widely-loved Nom shirt. If you're just too famished and need those noms right now, you can use coupon code "ANDROIDPOLICE" (no quotes) to get this shirt for $7.99, or five bucks off.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  1. Scott Benson
  2. bwbloom
  3. Mer T.
  4. Deante757
  5. IlanAlpert
  6. Andrew (tib)
  7. Irishgreendavis
  8. Christopher Grandell
  9. zpartal
  10. Brandon (bmw)

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.



You guys know how this works, don't you?  To enter, head to the comments and tell us something your Android device lets you do that you couldn't live without. Just be sure to keep it civil. These arguments can be fun, but rudeness can disqualify you. Also, this contest is for U.S. residents only. Sorry to those of you across the pond/border!

The giveaway begins immediately and ends tonight, April 18th, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST. After that, we'll randomly pick the ten winners and notify you that you're getting some free swag.

If your stomach is rumbling already, you can use the coupon code to get the discount for today only. The coupon code expires at 11:59 PM PST today, so don't waste any more time. I mean, I already told you about the coupon code three paragraphs ago. What are you waiting for?

    My Android phone gives me wifi while I'm away from my home network with my laptop when I need it the most, provides me a flashlight when I stumble through the darkness, and on cold nights, who needs a blanket when you can watch Netflix and warm yourself from the heat of your phone?

     Where do I start?! I have Back Track 5 on my phone and I'm sure you can guess the benefits of that.

    My favorite method of taking notes is mind map applications.  I use Mindjet on my phone and tablet and Freemind on my laptop and work and home pc's.  Mindjet has a Dropbox functionality which syncs all of my maps, so no matter where I am I have access to my most current notes.  If I'm out to dinner and I think of something, I can grab my phone and make a quick note which will automatically be synced to all my other devices. Love it.

    My ASUS Transformer tablet Wifi tethers to my Droid X phone (both Android) and let's me watch Youtube, Netflix, and listen to Spotify and Pandora anywhere I happen to be... be it pulling a long weekend at work fixing an email server, staying at a hotel where I don't want to pay for Pay-Per-View or their daily wifi, or laying in bed catching up on Philip DeFranco, Ray William Johnson, and VSauce before bed.  That's just one of the hundreds of things I do with my devices that I don't think I'd live very happily without!

  • Tyson Young

    I would have to say that rocking OnLive gaming on my Asus Transformer Prime (with it hooked up to my 46" TV via HDMI) is the best gaming I have done in a while.  Using my OnLive Bluetooth controller and playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood or Boarderlands is downright Badass.  I couldn't live without gaming, and now gaming mobile is made possible by Android!

    I know this is probably pretty lame for some of you, but my Galaxy Nexus lets me talk hands-free (and safer) while driving my new Jeep.  I'm thrilled!

  • Pter McLean

    My favorite aspect of my android is google wallet. My NEXUS has a NFC reader and I can use it to pay for schtuff like a debit card. Ah, technology. Fun story, I ordered that shirt last time it was available. The USPS sent it to SAN FRAN instead of Oregon. I ws refunded my money but was out a shirt. Well, maybe this time Ill get one for already not getting one. Thanks! AP rawks!

  • Shyam P

    Synchronize my life.  Documents, logs, contacts, pictures, files, and everything else I have is at my hand, whenever I need it for whatever reason.  Weather it be with Dropbox, Google Docs, DeskSMS or any of the other countless apps I use to tie my life together, Android has what I need, when I need it.

    Simple - my Android phone keeps me connected to those I care about. My Android tablet keeps me productive even when I am away from the office. My Google TV makes watching TV more fun with access to more content and apps. Now if my car's audio / nav was based on Android, I'd be complete!

  • Philip Owen

    Navigation, games, widgets, microSD slot for additional memory, rooting so I can have full access to the device... so much. Android is awesome.

  • Robert Alex Kibler

    I couldn't live without my Android phone's ability to browse the web using whichever browser I want.  Flash helps with that.

  • Terry Poulin

    My Androids let me stay in contact with my fiancee through the night (we live in different countries), and I wouldn't be able to do that without moving my bed or my PC, 'cuz she's to sweet to make me sleep in my chair lol. "Nom" is also kinda an in joke with us but not android related.

  • Ronniegmunoz

    My Android is my little green buddy. He keeps me company, lives in my pocket, plays me music when I wanna jam out, keeps up with all my friends and tells me of all their exploits, plays along with our home entertainment system, keeps me informed of news and weather, even lets me talk to family and friends all over the world. And even after all that he never complains. To be able to honor him with such a bad a$$ tshirt showing off his amazing talents over other devices would just warm the cockels of his little Android heart.

    My Android device is a conversation starter.  Having no physical buttons on my galaxy nexus causes people to come up and ask to look at it.  In contrast, my friend with an iPhone never has someone come up and ask to see his phone, because evidently everyone has already seen what an iPhone can do.

I use it for everything from music to working out using app's to keep track of my progress, to keeping up with my various social networks (G+, Twitter, Facebook), to keeping in touch with friends spread across the state of Florida, to doing some simple math work for homework, to calculating a tip on a nice restaurant with my girlfriend, to taking and sharing pictures with everyone I know, to keeping on top of my budget, to taking quick notes for class or just randomly throughout the day, to keeping me on top of my calendar and daily schedule, to helping light up the way when there's no light around, to catching up on my GBA games, to being my constant daily weather guide, to watching my daily dose of youtube, to... well, you get the picture. It's a far bigger part of my life then a cellphone ever was before it. :)

    There's very few aspects of my life that my Galaxy Nexus DOESN'T help me with. I love streaming music while I'm navigating somewhere and putting out a hotspot for my passengers. I think multitasking and customization is the true power of an Android device.
