Mobile hunters can get a real taste of action thanks to Cabela’s launching the official Big Game Hunter to Google Play this morning. In Big Game Hunter, you take on North America’s biggest prizes, such as mountain lions, massive bears, deadly moose during mating season, and other various white-tailed deer and birds. All weapons in the game, including rifles and shotguns are upgradable, and before you ask, yes there are in-app purchases available to help you rank up faster. (more…)

Here’s our quick review of the One Max. (more…)
Best Buy is currently hosting a 1-day online sale for the 2013 Nexus 7 with 16GB of storage for $194.99. That’s a $35 discount, or the exact price of a new Chromecast should you not own one yet. I’m not sure you’ll find a better deal anywhere, especially on a new unit which this appears to be.
With X-mas only two weeks from today, I’d say you just found someone an amazing present. (more…)
Long lost fans of Mario Kart, a potential new addiction has arrived on Android in the form of Angry Birds GO! Oh, and that exclamation isn’t because I’m overly excited, that’s simply how Rovio is spelling the game’s name. But yes, the kart-style racer from Rovio is here and available for free. (more…)
An image posted back in November by @evleaks, which showed a red Nokia device, is now being reported as the company’s first step into the Android realm. As reported by The Verge, the device, which is codenamed Normandy internally, is supposedly set to launch in 2014 running a forked version of Android – much like Amazon does with its Kindle line of tablets. According to one source inside Nokia, Normandy is “full steam ahead.” (more…)
