The Game Of Life (Simulation)
Developed by XDA forum member Simonmarky, the Game of Life is actually a cellular automation devised by the mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
The XDA dev states that it’s a sort of virtual world where many cells are living. They reproduce and die under certain conditions.
This game does not need a player as such, but it can be made more interactive by adding special patterns that will evolve in specific ways, or by changing the rules of the world.
For example, in Simonmarky’s implementation, options include being able to play/pause/reset/randomise, change the speed, change the colour, change the shape, create your own rules and more.
The application is available for free in the Market. To find out more, and scan the QR code, head on over to the forum thread.

This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
