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...
Stay Stealthy and Fluffy with Agent Sheep
Puzzle games are always a great way to kill time while having some fun in the process. However, after a while, they all pretty much start looking alike and concepts begin to blend together. On top of this, sheep (one of the most under-utilized farm animals in the world of gaming) have not been seen as important part of a video game since Worms. Well, the day of redemption seems to finally be here for the walking cotton balls because XDA Forum Member Beep_Beep just granted the little quadruped a new chance to shine on the small screen with Agent Sheep.
The premise of the game is quite straight forward. You are an undercover sheep trained by some of the most skilled secret agents in the world. Your mission is to retrieve the missing key fragments scattered throughout the different levels of the game, which happen to be disguised as bones. Retrieving them, however, is not as simple as it sounds as there are vicious Doberman dogs guarding the area (as well as their bones). It will be up to your to properly guide Agent Sheep to be able to collect the key fragments while going completely unnoticed. The maze type levels can help you escape a possible dismemberment if you are discovered by the dogs, but it is on your best interest to avoid getting spotted.
Again, the game is a fun way of killing some time if you have any. Animations are quite smooth and graphics are very well done for a game of this kind. The dev is actively looking for feedback in the form of bugs and suggestions to make the game better, so if you happen to try it, please provide the dev with your thoughts so that the game can grow. Enjoy it!

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...
