Right before Google announced a way to get a portion of its money back from app and game developers through Google Play, the company stated it paid out over $7 billion to publishers in 2014. With over 1 billion Android devices activated across 190 countries, Google Play continues to be a great means of distribution for any developer’s hard work. (more…)
While browsing through Google Play, I happened upon a game called ZigZag. Being a person who enjoys the type of games where I die constantly, trying to get further in a level to boost my score, I downloaded the game onto my device. What a terrible mistake. (more…)
While the amount of paid applications available on Google Play continues to grow, it is very apparent that the quality is also moving forward with great strides. Today on Google Play, we have video games that were available on consoles just a few years ago, such as the Grand Theft Auto series, and even Portal.
With the entrance of better apps and games, prices have also seen a rise. Not every app costs a $1, and if you want quality software for your smartphone, you have to be willing to shell out some cash. In addition, developers and publishers alike are adopting micro transactions (aka in-app purchases) to bring in more revenue from their titles.
Our question today is, how much money have you spent on apps and in-app purchases? (more…)

A new game hit Google Play this morning called Monster vs. Sheep, tasking you with destroying an angry monster who wants to terrorize your city. Looking like a Blastoise on steroids, you use a large flock of sheep to basically choke the monster to death. (more…)
Only because the world needed another Kickstarter-funded Android gaming console that will more than likely ship months late and under-deliver, we thought we should introduce you to ZRRO. ZRRO opened on Kickstarter today, seeking $200,000 from you and I, so that it can deliver an Android gaming system that plays the way mobile games were meant to be played, with a touch pad. Apparently, consoles that tried to convert mobile touch-friendly games into console-like experiences that utilize a typical gamepad, had it all wrong. ZRRO thinks you should use their hover touch pad, to play like you would on your phone (using your fingers and thumbs), but through your TV…if that makes sense. (more…)
Being Friday and all, we have a nice list of apps and games currently on sale that can help keep you busy over the weekend, just in case you are sitting at home alone with no valentine this year.
