Samsung Stratosphere – Verizon’s latest QWERTY phone has the worst possible timing [Phone Review]

I haven’t had my hands on a Samsung device in a while, but I’ll admit I am a bit biased towards them. I like plastic vs metal casing, a sleek black design appeals to me more than slate gray, and I’m a sucker for AMOLED displays. The Samsung Stratosphere is Samsung’s answer to the Droid 3, and with all of my favorite features, it  [Read More…]

Remember in The Fox and the Hound how Tod is a likeable, heroic fox that ends up saving the day in the end? He must be from a different breed of fox (the Disney breed?) than the ones you’ll meet in Chicken Coup Remix HD, because these foxes are nothing but muderous, bloodthirsty creatures with only one goal in mind: eat all your brainless chickens.

Why do I call the chickens brainless (other  [Read More…]

Motorola Droid Razr Review: thinnest, tough…top phone?

The Motorola Droid and Motorola Razr were both game-changing phones. The Razr introduced a slim, stylish phone at a time when devices would never be considered sexy.

What made the Droid special was that it was a powerful phone that moved Android from fringe geeky cool to mainstream  [Read More…]

Android Game Review: Reflexions

We’ve all been there: a maniacal evil genius has you in the thick of his trap, and the only way to escape his series of death beams is to reflect them away from you using whatever is at your disposal. Maybe it’s a nickel, maybe you’ve got a lot of mirrors at your disposal. At any rate, we all know the only way we got out of the trap (and saved  [Read More…]

Sumon is one polished math puzzle game [Game Review]

Looking for a free fun math game to give your brain a light workout, all wrapped in a nice polished Tetris-like package? Give Sumon a try and you won’t be disappointed.

The basic idea is to tap blocks to mentally add together their numbers to reach a target number shown at the top right. You can tap again to de-select, but go over the  [Read More…]

Famigo lets you share your Android devices with your kids, worry free! [App Review]

Do you have an Android device that sometimes seems to belong to your young children instead of you? If this sounds like you, then I’m sure you’ve:

heard “Dad!” or “Mom!” yelled out as they pressed the wrong button and went out of the game or video clip or drawing they were working on madly cancelled out as they were about to make an unauthorized  [Read More…]
