The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Bug Found in Angry Birds for Android – Lets you Unlock all Worlds
Do you know Angry Birds? If not, you must’ve been living under a stone. It’s a game that has been available for iOS for a long time, and is now available for Android too. Its popularity is huge, thanks to the nice graphics and smooth animations, and of course the nice game play. Some people may find it too difficult in the end though – resulting in new worlds that are being left locked because not all the previous levels are finished. Now for those people, there is a way to unlock all worlds and get access to all levels.
Found this out quite by accident.
- Load up Angry Birds and go to the world select screen.
- Centre a locked world on the screen.
- Push back button all the way out of Angry Birds.
- Load Angry Birds back up and when the “Play” button appears tap the s**t out of that m********r.
- Great success! You should be inside the locked worlds stage select screen.
- To keep it unlocked just pass the first world.
Many would argue whether it’s really fair to do this, but it can be quite useful when you flash or reset your phone, for level data can’t be backed up (Update: Titanium does that job too!)
Yet we’re wondering whether it’s actually a bug, or just the developers’ intend. No matter what, it can be pretty useful!

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...
