With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Helicopter Game and Themes for Android
If you like simple graphic games as well as the old arcade style games, this may be of your liking. XDA member indexphp123 presents Helicopter for your Android device, inspired on the iCopter game for iPhone. You control a helicopter and need to prevent it from touching either the floor, the ceiling, or anything else. The controls are easy since the game only requires you to touch the screen for the helicopter to rise and stop touching to descend. This simple game offers difficulty and addiction, which makes it fun.
The developer also wrote a nice tutorial to create your own themes.
