Getting To Know Android Police: AP2 Edition

Okay, so this isn't the GTKA post you've been expecting - that one's still in progress. This post, Getting to Know Android Police, will introduce you to something you're already looking at - our full redesign, delivered after what has seemed like an eternity of teasing, hinting, and behind-the-scenes work. AP2 is really just the beginning. We have even more awesome bits, pieces, and optimizations planned, but there are already a lot of new things to see around here, so we thought a post like this one might help our readers get acquainted with the new site. Get your itshappening.gifs ready.

Heads Up For Developers: Have An App Or Game You Want To Promote? Use Presskit

This post is specifically for app and game developers. Ladies and gentlemen, let's peek behind the editorial curtain for a bit. Here at Android Police, each writer sifts through hundreds of emails every day. A good portion of these are from people trying to promote an app, game, or service. Someone at AP reads each and every one of them, but to be perfectly honest, it's impossible for us to follow up on all of them. If you want to make your app stand out, you need to make a good first impression.

Enter Presskit. This service helps you add an effective promotional page to your website without going to an expensive PR firm.

    [Poll] Who Is Your Favorite Android Police Writer?

    I still can't believe that Android Police has been around for three years now (we've just celebrated our third anniversary last week). It's been hell of a roller coaster of leaks, emotions, interesting news, editorials, contests, and... writers. You may not realize this, but in the past years, we've been through probably over 60 contributors, the strongest 11 of whom now comprise the core team.

    But today is not the time for sob stories. That's not fun. What is fun, however, is figuring out just which one of the aforementioned 11 Android Police writers is your absolute favorite. Who makes you laugh?

    Taking The Power Back: Reviewing Royal Revolt

    It's hard to be a free to play app in the Google Play Store. With so many games throwing in-app payments into the faces of their players, it's tempting to follow along with them - if the money's good, why not? However, in the pursuit of cash, gameplay might suffer. On one hand, you want people to pay money, but on the other, you (ideally) don't want to ruin the experience they have if they don't. Thankfully, Royal Revolt avoids that last problem.

    The Concept

    Royal Revolt is a reverse tower defense game: instead of protecting against hordes of enemies, you are the horde that is looking to wreck everything.

    Now It's Even Easier To Find Us On Google+: Say Hello To Google.com/+AndroidPolice

    With the arrival of Google+ vanity URLs, we decided this would be a good time to share the AP love with those on the network who may not have added us to a circle yet. Speaking of custom URLs, we just snagged ours this morning; you can now find us at www.google.com/+AndroidPolice. Fancy, no?

    Follow Live CES 2012 Coverage With Android Police January 8-12 - Here Is What To Expect!

    CES2012_AP_728x350

    Folks, in less than 24 hours, the busiest, craziest, and most exciting (for gadget geeks anyway) event of the year will begin in Las Vegas and continue non-stop through all of next week. Of course, I'm talking about the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) where almost 130 thousand people are going to be touching, drooling, ogling, and playing with countless products put on display by companies from all over the world, big and small. Hell, half the fun will be catching all the announcements of products we can't even touch yet - ones we may not see for many months. Tablets, phones, phablets, tabphones, 3G, 4G, 5G (OK, maybe not 5G just yet), dual-cores, quad-cores, Android-powered TVs, goggles, and even dongles - we'll see them all!

    A few weeks ago, Google released a cool new way to consume content on mobile devices called Currents. For those who are unaware, Currents takes your favorite websites and transforms them into digital magazines (granted that the site has its own Currents edition). Well, now you can keep up with everything going on here at AP on Currents.
