Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store.

Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Take a Trip Down Memory Lane with Killer Instinct Soundboard
One of the many types of apps available for Android are soundboards, which are in essence recollections of sounds from different sources like movies, games, TV shows, among others. XDA member XaviorPenguin has just released the second version of his own soundboard. The dev thought that Nintendo’s ever popular fighting game Killer Instinct was famous enough to deserve its own. Most of the sounds from the first game are in there including the different levels of combo chains, character names, and the ever popular “C-C-C-Combo Breaker!”
Very simple UI and good quality of sound bites, make this app a must have for old fans of the game.
Searching the Android Market, I had found Soundboards for various games and movies and actors/actresses. I found one that wasn’t available…so, I decided to attempt to make one.
I, with the help of a soundboard tutorial, created the Killer Instinct Soundboard.
As far as I know, this is complete, for me. I may later add more sounds as I find them but for now, the current sounds are set in stone.

The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
