Bring Nostalgia Back with Turtle Graphics

Children of the 80’s will rejoice when they see a known little turtle drawing stuff in their Android devices. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go to google and search for “Logo Programming Language”. XDA member DarkGadgeteer has revived the little turtle and made it possible for us to head back a few years to play with the little guy. For those of you not familiar with it, Logo was a basic programing language where you had a turtle in the middle of the screen that would do whatever commands you told it to, normally drawing its path. Great and fun tool to teach your kids about computing (I know that is how I learned).

The app is free on the market and ready to download. Please leave some feedback for the dev.

Hi guys,

I’ve finally got my first app to a standard I’m ‘happy’ with so wanted to share it with you all to get some feedback and suggestions for improvements. (It is actually my second app but we don’t like to mention the first one!)

My app is inspired by the old Logo programming language (and a weird desire to draw crazy patterns!). I couldn’t find an easy to use app on the market so tried making my own.

Am enjoying building apps so far! Couldn’t have done any of it without the huge support on the net!

Hope you like it and I welcome your opinions.

You can find more information in the application thread.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
