Simple Online-Based Battleship Game for Android

There’s a reason why many games are considered classics. They’re fun, easy to play and they’ve been around for a very long time. So when those games started appearing on Android, of course we, the users, were happy to see our old friends again.

While there are a few versions of the classic game Battleship already available on the Android Market, XDA Member joao12ferreira and a colleague have decided to create their own version and release it to the public.

The game doesn’t deviate from the main point, which is to call out coordinates and see if there’s a piece of the opponent’s ship there. The graphics are simple, easy to understand and players who are opening it up for the first time have the option of playing against Android (aka the computer) or they can head over to the game’s server and play against a live opponent.

The game is still in its infancy, and joao12ferreira has invited anyone who checks it out to point out any bugs or suggest any features they’d like to see in future releases. So far, joao12ferreira has been working on online performance with a recent server update for faster online play.

For anyone who’d like to check the game out, you can find it here in the original thread along with a link to the Markert, screen shots and additional app details.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
