Oh, Path... If you would've released your Android app a few short weeks ago, I'm certain that it would've done quite well. Alas, here we are - two days after the initial launch of my new favorite social networking site, Google+, and there's probably not much hope for you now.
For those that are unaware, Path is a social application that allows you to share photos and have conversations with your closest friends and family.
If you're into gaming on your Android, then there's a solid chance that you've at least heard of Zenonia. But, for those that are not familiar with the series, Zenonia is an incredibly popular RPG made for the small screen, slightly reminiscent of old-school Zelda games.
Today marks the landing of the third episode in this epic trilogy, offering new features along with the same familiar gameplay that fans of the series have gotten used to.
Among high-end Android phones, Samsung's Galaxy S II pretty much takes the cake. The combination of powerful specs, thinness, and Android 2.3 give it a very competitive edge. But not everybody needs all of that, which is why Samsung is launching the Galaxy Z on Three Sweden. Basically, the Galaxy Z is the same as the Galaxy S II but with slightly toned down specs. Even so, it still puts many other Android phones to shame:
1 GHz dual-core processor (possibly Tegra 2)
4.2" WVGA Super LCD display
Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0
8 GB internal memory
microSD card slot
5 megapixel camera with LED flash
The phone is currently available for pre-order at the source link below for 3995 SEK, which comes out to around 630 US dollars.
Update: If you're the type that likes your games to be ad-free, then you'll be glad to know that Cut the Rope just landed in the Android Market sans ads. Of course, this mean you'll have to pay for it, but at $0.99, it's probably not going to break the bank. Hit the widget for download.
EVO 3D owners: want to be able to use the HTC Watch app and have access to The Green Hornet in full 3D, but wary that the system update may not be easily rooted? Well, you aren't alone. XDA user str8upx has extracted the updated HTC Watch .apk from the system update and has made it available to download for anyone who has not yet updated. This will enable users to use HTC Watch to its full ability, including watching the pre-loaded Green Hornet film.
While Sony broke the news of its upcoming S1 and S2 tablets back in April, there has been little info surrounding the pair since then - until today, that is. German blog Golem got some hands on action with the duo, and even took the time to grab a really quick video of the S2. Before I go any further, have a look:
As anticlimactic as that is, it does give a better idea of the form factor of this dual-screened oddity.
Good news for those of you in the UK (or anyone else that likes to keep up with UK news): The Times for Android has finally hit the Android Market! The app brings The Times and The Sunday Times to the palm of your hand, with "the latest stories on your screen almost as fast as they are written," according to the Market description. It also allows you to customize the layout for quick access to the news that you care about, full picture galleries, and the ability to save stories for later.
