Monday Poll: How Much Have You Spent on Apps and IAPs?

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.

ZRRO is a Android-Powered Gaming Console With a Hover Touch Pad Controller

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…)
