Boid Alpha for Android Review [Video]

Boid is a free Holo themed Twitter app for Android 4.0 and above. Holo, if you aren’t familiar, is the visual scheme of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This incorporates swiping left and right between tabs, the dark and light themes the action bar at the bottom of the app and more. I’m a fan! It’s missing a few critical features right now, but it’s in Alpha… Read more

Baby Savers game dev wants testers

Do you remember that bizarre 2D DOS game from 1984 called Bouncing Babies, where you play the role of two firefighters trying to transport – with a trampoline – infants that have been flung out of the windows of a burning building? Me neither, but it did exist, and I’ve embedded a migrane-inducing video below to prove it. Geez, there are a lot of babies in… Read more
