Love Video Game Achievements? Get Them for Your Phone with Phonechievements


Achievements and trophies are half the fun of video games these days. If you do something special in-game you get a little notification telling you of your accomplishment which then allows you to show them off to your buddies to tell them that you’re better than they are. Phonechievements looks to bring those bragging rights to your Android device.

The app is simple – install it and then let it scan your phone for achievements that you might already have unlocked. The achievements range from simple ones like “Initiation” which requires you place 10 calls that were answered. And then there are achievements like the “Felix Baumgartner” which wants you to get above 9,000 meters elevation and allow the app to get a GPS fix. If you’re curious to see how many achievements you already have unlocked, hit the Play Link below.

  • its bad. the achievements are kinda dumb, some of them are impossible. (who has 1k apps installed on their phone????) and the power ones require your phone to be left out of use if you want to get them all. I did install it to check it out, but it’s worthless.

    ALSO the gps scans every 30 seconds or something taking a reading of your location, like that helps your battery life… :/

    Nifty idea and could be fun if you had other friends who would be equally interested in it. If not, I don’t see the point really.

  • LOL 1-5 installs. Why on earth would anyone want this on their phone??? Achievements in a game make some sense. You compare against people playing the same game and can feel rewarded. Getting an achievement for going over 9000 meters? Who cares???
    Not to mention the tradeoff is letting this thing sniff around your whole phone. Sounds like a very very bad idea to me.

  • Just for kicks why not

    My Galaxy Nexus will never unlock any of the Power Wizard achievements.

      Best I’ve gotten with the G-Nex was 36 hours, and that was on the weekend with basically no use. (maybe 30 mins on screen time, but with LTE radio on and WiFi set to auto) >.>

    • I got 5 days once… but that was with all cellular radios off and pretty much using it as a camera…

      I took a screenshot just to laugh at how it’ll never happen again…

    Time to brag to all my friends about how many achievements I have

    Understandable but scary permissions for a no name app…
