It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Have Some Fun With BackFromEarth for Windows Phone 7
Everyone gets happy about going back home, and the main character in this game is no exception. Based on the hugely popular game DoodleJump, XDA member c2d releases BackFromEarth for Windows Phone 7 devices. In essence, you are in control of a little alien creature trying to jump his way back to his mother ship. You have stages on which to jump on and have to use the tilt controls of your device to allow the little one to move around and aim at the next stage. Easy? Not really, as the levels get progressively more complex with enemies, and of course a big void underneath waiting for you to miss a jump. The game features an intelligent level generator, so you can rest assured that you will not be able to memorize the sequence and positions of the stages.
The game was just released and the dev is looking for feedback on it, so please share your thoughts and findings (if you run into bugs).
In BackFromEarth you try to help an alien back to his mother-ship using the tilt controls. The way back is dangerous and there is always a big void underneath you. The question is:
How far can you get?
BackFromEarth featuring a wide variety of different platforms and items. You need a fast reaction to survive. Every time you start a new level will be created by the intelligent level generator.
You can find more information in the game thread.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
