Rediscover the Old Spirit of Gaming with Text Fiction

Gaming is a part of Android. Powerful CPUs and graphic chipsets give a great chance to run even the most resource intensive games, but not every game features great graphics and animations. There are still indie games available that require you to think hard instead of being deadly fast.

One independent developer, XDA Forum Member onyxbits, created a game reminiscent of the traditional text games from the 80s. Text Fiction is not a typical game, it’s more of a game engine that allows you to load games. Officially, you can download 4 games: Dreamhold, Anchorhead, Curses and Vanichella. However, every text game stored in Z3, Z5, or Z8 format can be played. Solving the riddles isn’t easy, and you will have to spend some time racking your brain to find a solution for some mysteries. If you’re stuck, you can always type o command to get some help. Games like this only prove that not everything that is flashy and good looking is necessarily better.

If you’re bored with farming coins or repeating the same actions over and over, you can try your luck with one of the hundreds of logical games. All you need to do is to go to the game thread and give Text Fiction a shot.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
