A 2D Rubik’s Cube – Presenting Cognicube for Android

The Rubik’s cube is one of many people’s favorite pastimes. In fact, there are a few games for mobile devices to play this in case you don’t own one (or in case your pockets are not big enough). Also, if you search around, you will find several variants of the game, but  XDA member theillustratedlife took a different approach to make this game more refreshing. As a cube has 6 sides, the dev figured that the cube can be opened up, showing all 6 faces simultaneously in a 2D environment. This is for all these people who believe that a game must be in 3D to be good and playable. There is plenty of fun in the 2D world, we just need to find devs who are willing to do things like this for us.

Be sure to drop by the thread and leave some feedback.

Hey guys,

I just shipped my first Android game!

It’s called Cognicube. It’s a sliding cube puzzle, like a Rubik’s Cube, but unwrapped so you can see all six faces at once.

It’s completely free. There’s a donation window that will pop-up when you launch the game, but you can easily close it with the Back key.

Please let me know what you think!

Thanks.

You can find more information in the game thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
