Angry Birds Space For Android Released
All hail the Angry Birds. Creator of some of the most popular Android games of all time—including now-classics as Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds—Rio has released a new iteration where our feathery little friends take on the final frontier. For those who don’t know what that is, it’s space.
The list of new features for the new game is pretty massive, and includes:
• 60 interstellar levels!
• Regular free updates!
• Brand new birds!
• Brand new superpowers!
• Zero-gravity space adventures!
• Trick shots using planets’ gravity!
• Hidden bonus levels!
• Beautifully detailed backgrounds!
New birds, new levels, trick shots and zero gravity. What more could you possibly want in a video game? Not only is the game available in the Google Play store, but there are additional levels if you own a select Samsung device. It has been confirmed at least on the Samsung Galaxy S II. Of course, there’s a special little file called build.prop which can be altered to make it seem like users have a different phone than they really do. Hint hint.
For those who’d like to check it out, you can find a direct link to the Play Store download in this thread, thanks to XDA Senior Member kpjimmy for a little discussion on the new game.

These moments tell your story (...)[but] taking more pictures and videos makes it harder to relieve memories due to the sheer volume”. This is why they are revamping Google Photos and centering it around 3 big ideas: Creating a home for all photos and videos that is...
VP of Engineering Jen Fitzpatrick began talking about what Google is doing to help “the next billion” come online.

The majority of the next billion will be Android users and they “want to remove the barriers of smartphone adoption”. While there are huge displays of phones on sale, not all are able to run the latest and greatest...
