Time to grab the closest energy drink, sit down at your biggest, baddest, multi-monitoriest coding rig and get cracking on some game ideas, devs! Ouya has announced a 10-day competition that will challenge contestants to come up with an Ouya-compatible app from scratch. The shindig gets started on January 14th and from that point, participants will have until January 23rd to submit a playable demo of their original game.
The contest is being put on in partnership with Kill Screen, which will be reviewing the entries. After the initial reviews, some entrants (not all) will even be played by a "team of industry pros" that includes Ed Fries (co-creator of the Xbox) and Felicia Day (no intro needed).
Want a chance to win a brand-new Galaxy S III from AT&T and Android Police? Today, you can! As part of the 'It Can Wait' campaign, we're giving away a red AT&T Galaxy S III complete with an anti-texting and driving accessory pack.
It Can Wait
Texting and driving is bad. You shouldn't do it. AT&T agrees, and to date, they've managed to get over a million people to sign a pledge promising not to text and drive. It may sound a little trivial or silly, but texting and driving maims - and even kills - far too many people.
This contest is now over. You can find the winners in the Rafflecopter widget below.
It's the holiday season, and you know what that means: people are running around frantically trying to buy things. Among those things, you'll likely find a hefty supply of gadgets and gizmos, because this is the 21st Century, and everyone must have at least one techno-thingy. But there's a quandary when it comes to buying mobile devices: price. Everyone wants to get the best possible deal, and this is the time of year to get it.
But getting a good deal isn't all that matters when selecting a place to purchase mobile devices from - there's also customer service.
We all love those little Android figurines that come from the mind of Andrew Bell, and with Christmas coming up, that can only mean one thing: a holiday Android! I'd like you all to meet Frankie Frost.
Look at him, all frosty and cute - you know you want one. Or two. They're on sale now for $10 a pop, so you can always head over to the Dead Zebra Shop and order one up.
Or you can try to win one here. We have five to give away, so here's how to throw your hat in the ring.
This morning, Gen announced the newest addition to the Andru family: Chill. He's a relaxed little guy with a good demeanor. On the other side of the fence, though, is his cousin, Andru Dark. He's the wicked one of the bunch, with red glowing eyes and an appetite for destruction. Then there's the original Andru - the old, wise one. He's figured out the balance between good and evil, and is just happy to be included.
Regardless of which one strikes your fancy, there's one thing all three are good at: juicing up your devices. At the end of the day, all three of these little guys exist to serve you and provide power to all your Android gadgets.
When trying to decide on a new device, most people spend a lot of time comparing various models. How does product X stack up against product Y? Which one offers the most bang for the buck? Which is going to stay relevant the longest? There are so many things to take into consideration - it's quite an overwhelming task.
Thankfully, Sortable.com is there to assist you in the quest for a new gadget. Regardless of whether it's a camera, phone, tablet, laptop, or TV, you can compare all of the most popular products in each class against each other to really figure out which one is the best for you.
In the spirit of Halloween, let's give some stuff away! It's about treats after all - isn't it? And what better treat is there than free gadgets?
Since this is a Halloween giveaway, let's talk about the undead for a moment, shall we? In fact, let's get specific - let's talk about killing the undead with an assault vehicle made for mowing 'em down. Sound familiar? It should, because I'm talking about the newly released Tegra-exclusive title Zombie Driver.
It's like Twisted Metal with zombies. If that doesn't get your motor running, then you aren't human. In which case you're probably undead, and we'll have to slaughter you.
It's time again for another shirt giveaway and sale! Last time around we gave out five of these crowd-favorite shirts. Today, we're back with ten more! If you don't want to miss out, though, LOL Shirts is also running a sale on thesethreeshirts. Enter coupon code 4OFFNOW to knock $4 off the normal price ($12.99). Not a bad deal.
The contest is now over. Here are the winners, chosen at random:
Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
Have you heard? The fourth AnDevCon (Android Developer Conference) is happening on December 4-7 in the SF Bay area. And with more than 80 classes and workshops, this will be the biggest one yet. There will be sessions held by reps from some of the industry's leading companies, including Groupon, Intel, Facebook, and, of course, Google.
AnDevCon IV will offer one day of intensive workshops, followed by three days of technical classes. More than 1,500 software developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs from 40 nations are projected to attend and choose from 70+ classes to bring Android open source development to a high level.
For many people, cases and mounts are a part of life with a mobile device. The problem is, however, that many users aren't willing to sacrifice style for functionality. What if you could have both, though? Thanks to a new product from Rokform for the Galaxy S III, that's more possible than ever.
The Rokbed for the GSIII is Rokform's first endeavor outside the iOS world, and it looks like they hit it out of the part. The case itself features an edgy-yet-sophisticated design, as well as a bit of additional functionality: a magnet that allows the case to attach to other available accessories.
