DroidWars: Television

There are a lot of Android apps available for watching website video feeds, music videos, movie trailers and so on. So many, that I can’t imagine trying to put together a DroidWars about them. And while the Market is almost equally saturated with apps designed to bring you some sort of television related experience, very few deliver up-to-date (let alone… Read more

DroidWars: Twitter clients – Q1, 2010

This installment of DroidWars is all about the Twitter clients available in the Android Market. There are plenty to choose from and they’ve become so polished and feature rich that one could literally spend weeks testing out top contenders before claiming one as their own.

Here’s a hint: save your money and go for the freebies. The hardest part of using these apps is getting the settings right – like port forwarding. Someone… Read more

DroidWars: Breakout Clones

How many Breakout clones are available for Android? A lot, that’s how many. I had to edit out my banter about how a neighbor destroyed my Atari 5200. That’s how many Breakout clones are in the Market – and I didn’t even cover them all. Here are a couple to look for, and a few others to avoid. BTW, if you can play Droid Breakout using the accelerometer… Read more
