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.

If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
