Smartphones are the new portable gaming systems. And MP3 players, point & shoot cameras, calendars, on-the-go email machines, and social networking devices. Simply put, smartphones work hard for us. As a result, the battery drains quickly. Oftentimes too quickly.
That's why Seidio is offering up three 3,500mAh extended batteries and three desktop charging cradles for the Galaxy S III to three lucky readers.
As stated above, we have some battery/charging cradle combos to give away.
It's that time of year again - time for the annual Apps World in Europe (there's also an American event, but that's not until February 2013). And, just like last year, we've a couple of tickets to give away. Why? Because we're awesome and love to give away free stuff. That's why.
This giveaway is for the event only. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any other associated expenses.
Back in April, we gave away ten of the crowd favorite "Nom" t-shirt. Now, it's back for another round! We're giving away five more of these, courtesy of Tanga.

So, the long awaited title from Phosphor Games Horn is now available in the Play Store. It's an epic tale of a young boy who awakes to find himself in a Pylon-laden world. It's his job to destroy the beasts and turn them back into their former (human) selves. And it's awesome. Don't take my word for it though - check out our full review right here.
Horn has also been optimized for Tegra 3 devices, which really brings the environments and characters to life.
About a month ago, I reviewed a unique backpack called Solid Gray. It isn't a typical backpack by any standards - it's a unique hardshell pack made of a solid piece of extremely durable polypropylene plastic. Its eye-catching, futuristic design makes it one of a kind, and the overall layout is well thought-out given the nature of the bag.
Now, it's your chance to grab this unique carry-all for absolutely nothing, because thanks to the awesome guys at Solid Gray, we have one to give away.
I've written more than a few of these giveaways for products covering just about every aspect of Android development, and written by dozens of authors. But this one... well, this is special, because it's a series of LiveLessons from none other than former Android Police contributor Ian Clifton.

While most Android fans are clamoring to get their hands on a new Nexus 7, there are still those who prefer the size and feel of a 10" tablet. And for good reason: a 7" tablet is fantastic for reading, surfing the web, and even watching movies, but it's just lacking much-needed screen real estate when it comes to productivity.
Speaking of productivity, who wants a free Transformer Prime with dock?
It seems like most books on developing for Android are geared towards beginners and those who are accustomed to developing for other platforms or using other languages, while fewer help you put that extra layer of polish and shine on your app. With hundreds of thousands of apps already on the market for you to compete with, that's exactly what you need: something to kick your app up a notch or two.
Update: The winners have been selected. And they are are:
