Indie Developers Outraged as Google Requires a Physical Address on Play Store

Sep 19, 2014 - 9:42 AM - by dgstorm

Something is amiss in Google-land. Google just announced a new policy which has independent developers enraged, and for good reason. As of September 30th, 2014, Google will now require all developers to publish a physical address on the Google Play Store. This is for anyone who wants to host their app on the Google Play Store, and applies to paid apps or apps with in-app purchases. You can see the details in the screen grab below.


Keep in mind that this must be a "physical address," so a Post Office Box won't work. This is wrong on so many levels, it's baffling to fathom that...

Star Wars Commander for Android; Just Like a Star Wars Flavored Clash of Clans

Sep 18, 2014 - 11:18 AM - by dgstorm

Fans of the RTS-style game Clash of Clans who also happen to love the Star Wars universe are in for a treat! Star Wars Commander is now available for Android, and it's basically just like Clash of Clans only it's set in the Star Wars universe instead of the medieval fantasy-style found in Clash of Clans.

The game is free to play, but you know what that means... it includes the dreaded IAP (in app purchase) system. Supposedly, the IAP for this game isn't too terrible though, so it could still be worth a look.

Here's a quote from the Google Play description and a link below to try it out.

Sony Forecasting Quadruple Losses Due to Smartphone Division

Sep 17, 2014 - 10:58 AM - by dgstorm

Although Sony already cut its forecast for smartphone sales in July, they have had to readjust their predictions for the financial year and the outlook is bleak. Sony is now expecting quadruple the losses and it's due to poor sales of their Xperia smartphones.

Sony now expects a 180 billion yen ($1.7 billion) "impairment" after an internal review of its mobile division. Sony shared that they have changed their focus from "achieving significant sales growth" to reducing risk, volatility and "more stable profits." Apparently the mid-range devices were the worst offenders so Sony is likely to return their focus to premium devices.

Goat Simulator Comes to Android; Prepare to be Flabbergasted

Sep 17, 2014 - 10:49 AM - by dgstorm

The insanity has come to Android now! Goat Simulator is now available on Android. If you haven't tried out Goat Simulator, it is a rare treat in utter astonishment. We won't call it a great game, but it is one of the wackiest ways to have a good time and laugh until your stomach hurts.

There's no way to describe the ridiculous situations you can create while attempting the perfect combo with your acrobatic little goat. It's a bit pricey at $4.99 on the Google Play Store, but that might be worth it for the sheer shock value alone.

Let the mayhem ensue!

Here's a full description from the Google Play Store:

Description
Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true!
Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.

Key Features
* You can be a goat
* Get points for wrecking stuff - brag to your friends that you're the alpha goat
* MILLIONS OF BUGS! We're only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we're keeping it
* In-game physics that spazz out all the time
* Seriously look at that goat's neck
* You can be a goat

Samsung Galaxy Note 4's Exynos 5433 Confirmed to be a 64-Bit Chip in Source Code

Sep 17, 2014 - 10:37 AM - by dgstorm

After the folks at Anandtech dug deeper into the source code of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4's Exynos 5433 chipset, they discovered that it uses the new A57/A53 configuration instead of the previous generation Cortex-A15/A7 mashup. ARM themselves have confirmed this to be a 64-bit architecture.

It's odd that Samsung hasn't been touting that fact too loudly and basically only describe the chip as a 1.9 GHz octa-core processor. It is likely that Samsung simply wants to wait until Android L is released because the 64-bit functionality of the chip is mostly useless without a compatible OS to take advantage of it.

Of course, the primary exception to that is that this chipset will support more than 3GB of RAM in a device, but since the Note 4 only comes with 3GB of RAM, there's really no pressure to announce it yet.

Android One Launches in India; Coming to Other Nations Later This Year

Sep 15, 2014 - 11:31 AM - by dgstorm

Just as Google promised, they are on the march to bring Android to the "next 5 billion" people. They just launched the ultra-affordable Android One smartphone in India. They also shared that the $100 device will be launched in several other nations by the end of the year. This includes Indonesia, the Philippines and South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka).

The phone will continue its global march and head to other countries early next year as well. The phone is ultra-affordable because it eschews several of the typical features of most smartphones, like a camera for example. A large number of manufacturers will be building the Android One including: Acer, Alcatel Onetouch, ASUS, HTC, Intex, Lava, Lenovo, Panasonic and Xolo. The first phones will be made by Micromax.
