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...
Competitively Breed Virtual Shibes with Doge Breeding
Such addiction. So Doge. Wow.
Be it Flappy Doge, Dogecoin, strangely addictive online mining simulators, or the original meme itself, DOGE is pretty much everywhere nowadays. While the aforementioned Cookie Clicker clone certainly takes care your Doge-clicking needs on a desktop computer, there hasn’t been a suitable fix for your click-based addiction on mobile. But now thanks to XDA Forum Member Krzem, you can strategically and competitively tap away at your screen for hours—all while enjoying an image of a rather confused looking Shibe Inu.
Doge Breeding builds its game play on the same click for points concept seen in Cookie Clicker and Doge Mining Simulator. But rather than creating cookies or mining for cryptocurrency, you’re breeding doge. At the start of the game, each tap of the screen results in one doge. But in addition to mindlessly tapping the screen, you can purchase a variety of power-ups with your newly bred doge that either increase your doge-per-click or your doge-per-second. Sound simple enough? Not so fast. Another level of depth comes from how every time you purchase an upgrade, buying the same power-up becomes incrementally more expensive.
If you haven’t already had enough DOGE in your life, now’s the time to get some more. Get started by making your way over to the game thread and see if you can make it onto the game’s built-in leader board.

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.
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...
