Wow. What a journey this has been.
A little over five years ago, my first post — a [terrible] app review — was published on Android Police. The site was only a year old back then, and we were lucky to get 10 comments. That post had eight.
I still clearly remember the day that Artem asked me to come write for AP full-time — I was working a totally different type of job that I didn't like in the slightest, and I had done two app reviews for AP. I was at work when he messaged me on Hangouts (well, technically it was Google Talk back then) to tell me that the former full-time writer (yep, we only had one at the time) wasn't coming back, so he needed someone as a replacement.

It would appear that our recent editorial, which opines about things iOS does better than Android, has scored us some points in Cupertino. Today, the moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived. Yes, you guessed it. Android Police is now available through Apple News!
From this point forward, you can use Apple's amazing News app on your favorite iOS device to catch up on all the tech news, hard-hitting commentary, and razor-sharp reviews you've come to expect from Android Police. Just imagine, you can enjoy your favorite tech news site (we ARE your favorite, right?!?!?!?!) while reveling in the better battery life, carrier integration, and messaging that's offered on that awesome iPad Air 2 that David told you to pick up for Christmas.

Ting would like you to know that the Nexus 6 works great with its low price MVNO service. And it does: thanks to the N6's all-inclusive radio setup, the phone sold on the Play Store in the US can be used on both the company's CDMA and GSM network setups. There's just one problem - that's not a Nexus 6.
Nope, that's the Nexus 6 mockup that Android Police writer Liam Spradlin created way back in September, 2014. It's a testament to both our own news sources and Liam's superb graphic design skills that the mockup looks basically indistinguishable from the real thing, which was officially announced a month later.

A couple of weeks ago, Dead Zebra released the fifth series of everyone's favorite collectible Android figurine. Andrew Bell, the mastermind behind these awesome little guys, has been gracious enough to hook us up with some to give away, including a full set of all 16 (not a blind box - literally one of each), a Sk8 Cop Android signed by Gary Ham (that's the artist who created him), and 16 individual blind boxes. That's 18 total winners.
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future.

This post is specifically for app and game developers. Ladies and gentlemen, let's peek behind the editorial curtain for a bit. Here at Android Police, each writer sifts through hundreds of emails every day. A good portion of these are from people trying to promote an app, game, or service. Someone at AP reads each and every one of them, but to be perfectly honest, it's impossible for us to follow up on all of them. If you want to make your app stand out, you need to make a good first impression.
