Two Pics, One Word Action with Picture the Word

Android (and mobile gaming as a whole) has undergone an incredible evolution over the last decade or so. Due to the sheer ingenuity of developers and tons of imagination, coupled with the wonders of modern technology, several games have been successfully taken from the conceptual phase to the playable craze that they currently are. One such example is the ever fun concept of word games. Before the times of handheld devices, these brain twisting, knowledge testing, hair pulling games were around in other shapes or forms such as crossword puzzles, letter soup, matching, scrabble, and many more. As stated before, evolution seems to have taken place in this refined and classic area of gaming and has taken the word game to a new level.

XDA Forum Member mattobeney brings us Picture the Word for Android. The objective of the game is quite straightforward: Guess the word. You are given two pictures and a field with a bunch of letters to guess from. The combination or fusion of both pictures results in a single word, which you are to guess. For instance, you may be given a picture of a stick of butter and a picture of a fly and by combining the two words together, you would answer butterfly. Needless to say, that was a rather simple example but the words are somewhat more complex as you may only have to use chunks of the words as opposed to the example that I just provided, where the entire thing was used.

The dev is looking for feedback and suggestions to improve this seemingly fun game. Bug reports are welcome as usual. Please take it for a spin and challenge your brain a little in the process.

Hey everyone I’ve recently created an app called ‘Picture the Word 2pics1word’ -Picture the word is the new ,original and incredibly fun game that will keep you entertained for hours.

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

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.

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.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

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...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
