So you already have your ticket to Google I/O, and the flight and hotel are both booked. What more do you need? How about something to do at the end of day one? It just so happens that Lookout is having a party that very night. A Party Your Apps Off party. And you can get in. Well, not all of you - but 20 of you can score a free in (and bring a guest!).
When: Tuesday, June 26 @ 8PM
Where: This part is a secret :)
What: Lookout's big party in San Francisco on the first night of Google I/O.
We know how much you love free accessories, so we've teamed up with SPIGEN to offer up ten white Crumena cases for the HTC One X (the white case looks especially sexy with the white One X) to ten lucky readers.
Here is a list of things that I loved about the Crumena case for the Galaxy Nexus, which also apply to the One X version:
The winners have been selected. Check the list below to see if you won!
Do you like listening to music on the go but find that your headphones, for lack of a better word, suck? Then today is (potentially) your lucky day, because Nocs and Android Police are giving away ten pairs of Nocs NS200 earbuds (a $70 value each - find them at Amazon here), and they rock. In fact, check out our review of the NS200s, because you might just end up skipping this giveaway and buying a pair right now.
Never heard of Nocs? Neither had I until a few weeks ago, but I was stunned by the fidelity, character, and comfort of the NS200s, and I'm really looking forward to any more Android products they have coming down the line.
Cruzerlite, the company behind the kickass Androidified gel case, has come a long way over the last several months. Instead of just offering a couple of different cases for one or two devices sold exclusively through Amazon, they now offer several cases for over a dozen different devices. To go along with their newly expanded case lineup, they've also launched an all-new website. In fact, their new site is one of the best that we've ever seen for a small company. Seriously - go look at it.
To promote the launch of their new site, we've teamed up with Cruzerlite to offer up a few different prizes to you guys.
Last month, I took a look at just a few basic things you can do with NFC tags and a capable phone. The possibilities of things that you can do with NFC are only limited to your own ingenuity, and we've teamed up with TagsForDroid to help you get started playing with this amazing and fun technology.
Before we get into the giveaway, though, here's another look at our demo from last month:
Like I said, those are just some of the more basic things that you can do with NFC. When combined with the power of Tasker, it really opens a whole new world of automation.
Last week, we told you about NVIDIA's first Player's Choice Awards - a way to let the players speak out about which Tegra Zone games have the best graphics, the best gameplay, and are just the most fun to sit down and play. Not only that, but NVDIA is giving away seven Tegra Zone Gamepacks to seven lucky winners just for voting in the PCA. So, if you haven't done so already, head over to the Tegra Zone and vote for your favorites! (alternatively, just hit the QR code on the right to go there on your mobile).
Earlier today, I reviewed the ZAGGkeys Flex Bluetooth keyboard, and loved it. It's a fantastic little keyboard - ultraportable, has incredibly battery life, and is a pleasure to type one. Not only that, but it can easily pair with your Android tablet or smartphone, as well as any iOS device that you may have. Say what you will about iOS, but the ability to have one keyboard that can pair with both Android and iOS is just awesome.
Of course, it's hard for us to tell you how awesome something is and not want to give some out, so guess what?
Are you a designer? Or really good with Adobe Illustrator? Or maybe just really motivated by the chance of winning the awesome Iconia A510 tablet (we reviewed it, it is awesome)? Then have we got a contest for you.
Update: The winning design along with the runners-up was announced here.
But first, the prize, and a short message from our sponsors.
NVIDIA Tegra Zone
Tegra-optimized games often offer a better experience over their non-Tegra siblings, and NVIDIA has put together a nice way to find them all in one place: enter the Tegra Zone.
The Tegra Zone is a site and companion app that makes it easy to find Tegra-optimized games and apps for your device.
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:
Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements.
Okay, so maybe you didn't win a Prime in any of our other giveaways. Well, guess what? Here's another chance!
So, what's the occasion? Only the release of one of the best games ever come to Android: The Dark Meadow: The Pact. I'm completely obsessed with this game right now - it's incredible. Don't believe me? Check out my review.
Since NVIDIA and Phosphor Games (the creator of The Dark Meadow) are just as excited about this game as we are, they decided to give us a Prime and dock to give away to one lucky reader, along with a $25 AMEX gift card to go towards purchases in the Play Store (like more gold or sun coins for TDM).
