windup-knight-now-available-for-android-mixes-classic-platforming-with-unique-visual-style_waut-_0

Over on the AndroidDevelopers YouTube account, Google has produced a little video about the development of Wind-Up Knight.

It's a short interview with the founders of Robot Invader, the developer behind the game. They talk about what a good idea it was to develop for Android, and go over some of Android's advantages for developers. They reach 100 devices with a single binary, they can update builds in 24 hours, (*ahem* ..Apple) and they're approaching a million users in only 2 weeks.

Android.com is totally new. And awesome. And you should go look at it.

You'll be introduced to Android 4.0 and its new features (like you don't already know). You'll get some app recommendations, and be blow away by the web design. There's even a section extolling the virtues of Android development.

android-web-site

The homepage is especially awesome, the live wallpaper on the phone and tablet is interactive. Everything on the site has nice little swoopy animations and beautiful design.

We all have apps that we would prefer to keep prying eyes away from - SMS, Email, Facebook, banking applications... the list goes on and on. You can always lock your entire phone down with a pin, password, or pattern lockscreen, but it gets tedious and annoying to have to unlock each time you want to quickly check something.

Enter Ultimate App Guard, a new app that lets you lock down specific applications.

Google Music is old hat. Sorry, guys - it's true. Streaming? Amazon's Cloud Player and iTunes iCloud both have it. Locker storage? Amazon gives you a decent amount, too - and they might even increase it if they feel Google Music is one-upping them. Purchase options? Apple and Amazon both have more music you can purchase digitally, including titles from Warner Music Group (which Google Music does not have), where many major contemporary artists are signed.

The Galaxy Nexus, aka the biggest tease in the world of mobile this year, is so close that we can almost feel the Verizon variant in our grabby little hands, but alas, it's not out just yet. Google wanted to send us a reminder today, just in case we've forgotten (yeah, right) in the form of a new Galaxy Nexus commercial and ten accompanying how-to videos.

Their message: "Simple. Beautiful. Beyond Smart," and that's exactly the way we like it.

When it was confirmed that the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have Gorilla Glass, it was as if the entire world into some sort of I'm going to scratch the hell out of it hysteria. It turns out that all the kerfuffle was for nothing, as one Galaxy Nexus owner decided to put that big beautiful screen to the test.

I admit, it was a little painful to watch, but the end result was nothing less than spectacular.

If you've been envious of some of the awesome new games rolling out for Tegra devices, then you'll be happy to know that two popular Tegra-only titles - Shadowgun and Sprinkle - have just been updated to bring compatibility to non-Tegra devices.

Shadowgun, a futuristic action-shooter, is probably one of the best games for Android to date, sporting insanely good graphics, a decent storyline, and compelling gameplay. This is one game that should definitely be a welcome addition to any gamer's catalog.

Even though the Kindle Fire has only been out for a couple of days, rumors are already circulating about what Amazon could be planning for next year - a foray into the smartphone world.

According to a research report put out this morning by a couple of Citi analysts, Amazon appears to be developing a smartphone in collaboration with Foxconn, though the actual device will most like be manufactured by the same company that produces the Kindle line.

Gameloft, the gaming studio behind such games as Modern Combat 2, N.O.V.A. 2 HD, and Asphalt HD, has recently released a new game for all you mythology and movie fans out there. If you're familiar with Gameloft's games, though, this may be a bit different from what you've grown accustomed to.

From the movie "Immortals", you play Theseus, a-hackin' and a-slashin' through all sorts of fun Greek and Roman mythology, including, but not limited to, minotaurs, titans, and generic disposable guys in strange armor holding swords.
