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...
Help Frank Fly in Airbag Frank 3D
Lets face it. Whether we want to admit it or not, gaming plays a big part at the time of choosing a new phone. Because of this, we are always delighted to see more and more time consuming games being released into the wild—particularly those with unique features and characteristics. So if you are tired of slinging birds at green pigs or slicing fruit simply doesn’t cut it anymore for you, keep reading. You may have found what your phone has been looking for.
Airbag Frank by XDA Forum Member dutty is a very fun game that can only be described as the virtual union of Angry Birds and Rainbow Rapture. The objective of the game is to make your character (Frank) fly as far as possible by slinging him with a gigantic sling shot. After the initial shot, you will aid him with some “boosters” such as rockets and other large and heavy objects that propel him farther. To make things even sweeter (and Little Big Planet fans will love this), the character can be fully customized with new suits.
Last but not least, the game has one additional feature that makes it even more appealing: If you have a pair of 3D glasses (cyan and red, etc), you can enjoy the game in 3D. The dev says nothing about compatibility with the auto stereoscopic screen of the EVO 3D, but if you have one and are willing to give it a shot, by all means.
What are you waiting for? Go on and help Frank reach new heights, and while you are at it, make sure that you leave some feedback on the game to the dev. Have fun!
Launch Frank from his slingshot by dragging back the rubberband and catapult him into space.
Use your arsenal of powerful fruits and jetpacks to help Frank reach new heights.
Along his way Frank will encounter a variety of monsters that might help him to travel further.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. 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...
