We've all read the horror stories: a new virus is crawling through the third-party stores, aiming to steal your personal information, identity, and first born child. More often than not, this type of malicious app is made possible because of one of the various root vulnerabilities that have been discovered throughout the various versions of Android.
X-Ray is a new app that lets you see exactly how vulnerable your device is by scanning it against several of these exploits, including RageAgainstTheCage, Gingerbreak, Mempodroid, Levitator, and a few more.
Madfinger Games has taken to its Facebook page to make an official statement regarding the decision last Friday to remove the $0.99 price tag from Dead Trigger. The decision, which has angered many users who had only recently paid for the game, can be summed up in one word: piracy.
Regarding price drop. HERE is our statement. The main reason: piracy rate on Android devices, that was unbelievably high. At first we intend to make this game available for as many people as possible - that's why it was for as little as buck.
Over a year ago, I reviewed an interesting life journal app called Friday. The app aimed to record every single interaction a user had with their smartphone, including calls, texts, mails, photos, social activities, and songs played. My conclusion was that while Friday was a polished app, it was doubtful whether it would actually be useful. The developer Dexetra then spent a year running alpha and beta tests, and their latest version of Friday is a lot more polished, with an improved focus.
"Serial killer" and "Simulator" aren't words that usually appear together. But in the case of Dexter, Showtime's prima donna of premeditation, it might just work. This fall, Showtime and Ecko|Code (Marc Ecko's game development studio) will bring Dexter Morgan to Android. It's labeled "Dexter The Game 2", since the original is a web-based affair. The second time around seems to be taking a Grand Theft Auto-style open approach.
As a major fan of Miami's favorite compulsive vigilante, I'm both excited and worried about Dexter The Game 2.
A little while ago, Madfinger Games pushed a pretty major update to its new zombie-filled apocalyptic first-person shooter Dead Trigger. This update brought new weapons, arenas, levels, and zombies; it also brought an unexpected perk: a new price of free.
Now you can get in on all of the action without paying a dime. Of course, if you still want to show the developers some love (which I highly recommend), you can also do so through the in-app purchasing system.
When Theft Aware was first released, we fell in love with it. Many months later when it was bought by avast!, we kept our fingers crossed that it would remain the same fantastic product that it had always been. Fortunately, avast! has proven itself to us, as both its Mobile Security suite and Anti-Theft (which is what became of Theft Aware), just keep getting better and better.
Ask any five Android fanatics you know the following question: "What's the most exciting tablet-based launcher project in the world right now?" And you're likely to get five identical responses. The Chameleon launcher has captured the imagination of Android tablet aficionados after a successful Kickstarter campaign and plenty of coverage from news outlets like this one. Today the developers posted two videos showing off Chameleon's impressive complexity and flexibility, and naturally they're showing it off on the hottest Android tablet going: the Nexus 7.
A major update is coming to everyone's favorite zombified first person shooter for Android. You want more blood? More guns? More zombies? More awesome? Check, check, and check.
Madfinger packed DT's first big update full of fun stuff - everything from chainsaws to repeating rifles, there are even more ways to slay the undead. That's not all, either; there are new environments, new zombies, and even a casino so you can play the slots.
The long awaited day is finally here: the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy - The Dark Knight Rises - is playing in theatres across the world. To celebrate the finale of this epic trio of films, Gameloft has released a game of the same name into the Play Store.
In The Dark Knight Rises you play the role of Batman, who has been re-awakened after eight years of silence, to stop Bane from torturing Gotham.
