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.
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!
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:
