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.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. 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...
