It's hard to be a free to play app in the Google Play Store. With so many games throwing in-app payments into the faces of their players, it's tempting to follow along with them - if the money's good, why not? However, in the pursuit of cash, gameplay might suffer. On one hand, you want people to pay money, but on the other, you (ideally) don't want to ruin the experience they have if they don't. Read More
With the arrival of Google+ vanity URLs, we decided this would be a good time to share the AP love with those on the network who may not have added us to a circle yet. Speaking of custom URLs, we just snagged ours this morning; you can now find us at www.google.com/+AndroidPolice. Fancy, no?
What's in it for me? you may be asking. How about joining our over 48,000 other followers and great discussions with like-minded folks? Read More
Folks, in less than 24 hours, the busiest, craziest, and most exciting (for gadget geeks anyway) event of the year will begin in Las Vegas and continue non-stop through all of next week. Of course, I'm talking about the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) where almost 130 thousand people are going to be touching, drooling, ogling, and playing with countless products put on display by companies from all over the world, big and small.

A few weeks ago, Google released a cool new way to consume content on mobile devices called Currents. For those who are unaware, Currents takes your favorite websites and transforms them into digital magazines (granted that the site has its own Currents edition). Well, now you can keep up with everything going on here at AP on Currents.
Finding us on Currents is easy; there are two ways of going about it. Read More
Today is the day when most of us in the U.S. spend time with our family, stuff our faces full of delicious food, and relax. While you're spending time with your family, the Android Police family would like to wish you all a very special holiday - of all the things we're thankful for, you, the reader, are at the very top of the list. Without you, none of this would be possible. Read More
A few weeks ago, we launched what ended up being my favorite creative Android Police contest to date - the wallpaper design contest. With over 250 submissions, it took me a little while to sort through everything and pick out the two winners, the top 25 runners-up, and even one hilarious entry that we absolutely had to include.
As promised, the first place entry will receive a 16GB Sony Tablet S, and the second one will get the Philips Fidelio AS851 that we reviewed earlier. Read More
Earlier today, Google announced Google+ pages for businesses and other entities. Naturally, we rushed over to G+ to snag our piece of the pages pie, and we'd like to invite each and every one of you to circle the new Android Police Google+ Page!
We will continue to update the +Art Russ account for the time being, but go ahead and circle/share the new one so we can spread the word. Read More
For the last year and a half, I've been living and breathing AP. Four months in the making, it was originally an outlet for my newly found passion for Android, but quickly grew to be much-much more, frankly, way past any expectations I may have had. I've been through a rollercoaster of emotions, breaking news, drama, and excitement. I've probably looked through and found more apps than a person could install on 10 phones, learned more about life, business, travel, and people than I have in 5 years prior, and, most importantly, had a ton of fun doing it all.

The Beer Pong HD crew have really outdone themselves this go around: they added an Android Police table, complete with cop and villain! Have a look:
If you don't already have it installed, head over to the Android Market and get it!
- Improved performance
- Improved graphical quality (icon, tables and cups)
- Added "Table of the Month" feature.
Today is a big day for all of us here at AP, but more so for our loyal and dedicated readers!
Over the past few weeks Artem and the senior editorial team behind AP have been in deep discussions with Tim Armstrong, CEO and Chairman of AOL, and Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, and early this morning an agreement was reached that would see AP join the ranks of the veritable who's who of tech blogs, such as TechCrunch and Engadget.
