The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Test Your Word Skills Against Friends with LetterWars
While advanced 3D gaming has come a long way on Android, many people still enjoy starting up a small casual game to kill a few minutes. In these cases, simple games like puzzles or brain teasers are usually the go to option rather than a full featured, and thus more time consuming, title. However, some of these games can get boring after extended periods. Playing by yourself doing the same thing over and over again is only fun for so long. There is now a casual game that’s meant for multi-player.
XDA Recognized Developer Goddchen released the game LetterWars. Unlike most of the simple games for Android, this one is focused around multi-player. Gamers square up against one another in what is essentially a mano-a-mano round of Word Search. Two players look at a bunch of letters and take turns finding words out of them. Based on the length of the word, the score increases. Here are the game features:
* 2 player online multiplayer
* Play against random opponents
* Challenge your friends
* Light and dark theme
It won’t win any awards for graphics or sound, but if you’re looking to kill a few minutes and you’d rather play competitively, then this is a game worth checking out. For more details, check out the game thread.

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...
