Building apps can be a tough task. It can be difficult visualizing how the functionality of an app and its UI work together before you have a working model. Prototyper aims to alleviate some of that stress by letting you build what appears to be a functional app, without that messy business of it having to work.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • MJ
  • Deepu Mukundan

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

If you've entered two of these contests already and you're still naked from the waist up, here's your last chance. As before, we're giving away ten obviously-fanboyish shirts. Today's is the widely-loved Nom shirt. If you're just too famished and need those noms right now, you can use coupon code "ANDROIDPOLICE" (no quotes) to get this shirt for $7.99, or five bucks off.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

We teamed up with Tasks N Todos back in February to hook one lucky winner up with a Galaxy Tab 8.9 and ten more with pro licenses of Tasks N Todos, and now, we're back again to give one lucky winner a White GSM Galaxy Nexus.

So, what's so great about Tasks N Todos?

For starters, it syncs with Google Tasks, so if you have access to GMail, you have access to your task list.

It's no secret that we work with a number of publishers to give away a steady stream of books to aid aspiring developers - after all, if we help developers, the entire Android ecosystem as a whole is enriched. But for some people, simply reading a book isn't the ideal way to learn. It's for these people that informIT has released Android App Development Fundamentals LiveLessons - a series of downloadable videos that are designed to teach Java developers how to build apps for Android.

A few days ago, Artem went in-depth with the MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32 Bluetooth headphones, and, for the most part, he loved them. They're sleek, sexy, functional, comfortable, and they provide good audio quality (what more can you ask for?). What makes these headphones exceptionally cool, though, is the six-button controller. But I'm not going to dish all of the details here - I encourage you to read the full review.

We love giving stuff away, which is why we do it so often. As you probably know, we normally tell you guys to leave a comment, like a Facebook page, retweet a message, or something similar, and then we pick a winner at random. Today, however, we're going to do something a little bit different.

We're going to play trivia.

Not Android trivia, either (that would be too easy). We're going to play "Oscar Trivia." So, how are we going to do this?

If you've ever lost a device or had one stolen, then you know what a gut-wrenching feeling that can be. All of your personal data, contacts, e-mail, social networking, photos, and more in the hands of a stranger or thief? The very thought of it is sickening.

If you want a better chance of retrieving your lost or stolen device, then you have to be proactive about the matter. One of the top apps on the Market for hunting your down missing device is, of course, SeekDroid.

Remember yesterday, when we introduced you to an adorable USB charger named Andru? In case you missed it, Andru, from Gen, is a cute Android accessory that "wants to charge your phone." This little guy is not only a USB charger, but an awesome cubicle decoration. Modeled after the bugdroid we all know and love, Andru's power-plug legs can be hidden by a matching base, he has moveable arms, and his eyes light up blue, making Andru perhaps the most dynamic, fun USB charger you'll ever encounter.

Thanks to our two-dozen (or so) previous book giveaways, you probably now know how to develop for Android. If so, it's probably time to kick your game up to the next level by mastering application security. Luckily for you, O'Reilly Media recently published a new book on the topic, titled "Application Security for the Android Platform: Processes, Permissions, and Other Safeguards." Written by Jeff Six, the book is a concise (112 page) treatise on the subject.
