Ever since a hardware manufacturer went to a music festival to announce a video game about birds flying into space, the internet has been waiting for Angry Birds Space to launch. Well, the countdown is finally over, and Angry Birds Space is now stationed at Amazon's Appstore.

As per usual, the game is free if you like ads, or $0.99 on the Appstore for an ad-free experience. Amazon also has an HD version of the ad-free game for the Kindle Fire available on the Appstore.

No one is more tired of hearing the word "magic" applied to gadgets than I am. For the iFrogz Boost, though, I'm willing to make an exception. This device promises to amplify the sound coming out of "nearly any smartphone or digital media device" sans wires, Bluetooth, setup, or syncing. For once, in a parade of lofty promises coming from every corner of the tech sphere, a device not only makes a grandiose guarantee of convenience and ease-of-use, but actually delivers.

Getting fit is a chore. Keeping track of what you eat, how much you exercise, counting calories gained and lost, I t can all get a bit overwhelming. The Fitbit accessory is designed to make the process easier by keeping track of how many calories you've burned while walking, working out, etc. during the day and logging on to the site to add in your calorie intake at night. Now, the Android app streamlines both of these processes.

Who doesn't like games? Or charity? Or setting your own prices? If you answered "me" to any of these questions, you may take the rest of the article off. The rest of you, get ready for the Humble Bundle For Android 2! The same rules apply to the second round as the first: pay what you want, designate how much should go to charity, get licenses for all available platforms.

2012-03-19 12h37_50

The list of games are as follows:

  • Swords & Soldiers
  • Canabalt
  • Zen Bound 2
  • Cogs
  • Avadon

All of these games are brand new to Android and come complete with licenses to play them on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even unlock the games on your Steam account (where available).

Well, here's a twist for you. Apple Google has just banned Reddit Is Fun from the App Store Google Play Store due to "sexually explicit material." The author of the app has taken to (where else?) Reddit to voice his concerns and ask for advice in getting his apps reinstated. It may be a simple problem to solve, however.

The move comes shortly after Reddit Is Fun received an update to version 2.0 and was split into two apps.

We've heard whispers and rumors of a new Motorola device dubbed the "DROID Fighter" (no relation) heading for Verizon. Today, we've got our first look at the device via Mr. Blurrycam. The device was snapped sitting next to a DROID RAZR, highlighting the notable differences of a larger, possibly HD screen and no capacitive buttons.

It can only be assumed that this device, if released as-is, would be an Ice Cream Sandwich device at launch due to its lack of capacitive buttons.

Volume control on Android can be kind of a pain to manage, as there's multiple volume settings that need to be managed, but it's not always obvious what settings you're adjusting when. Slider Widget simplifies this process by placing all five independent volume controls, as wells a brightness control setting, on your homescreen in one convenient widget.

The widget not only displays what level the various settings are at, but gives the user a handy slider for adjusting each one without taking up a ton of space on the homescreen.

The hits just keep on coming from DotEmu. After releasing retro gaming classic Another World for Android yesterday, the game developer announced that it would also be bringing Little Big Adventure (no relation to Little Big Planet), another cult classic game from the 90s to Android this fall.

Little Big Adventure may not be a staple of retro gaming in the same way that Mario or Sonic are (those sellouts), but the game garnered quite the following in its time.

Sure, Hulu may still be struggling with supporting even a majority of Android devices, but who needs that mess when the CW has an app? Well, yes, people who want to watch shows by any of the other networks, but now all of the CW's top shows are available on (some of) your phones and tablets in their full-episode glory.

It's not quite the complete library experience we've all been hoping for that some shows occasionally get on Hulu or Netflix, but all of the 12 shows available come with 5 episodes each which, we assume, will be the five most recent episodes unless a show is on hiatus, as is the typical custom with most major streaming sources.
