Become An Assassin On Android With Clear Vision

Become An Assassin On Android With Clear Vision

Clear Vision is one of the best Android games I’ve seen. It has a great story line whereby you play the part of Tyler, a down and out bum that loses his job in a supermarket and decides to take up a new career as an assassin. This isn’t a free game but it costs just £0.65 so it really isn’t much for such a great game. With a game of this sort obviously containing violence then i... »

Osmos The Most Addictive Game Ever!

Osmos The Most Addictive Game Ever!

One of the great things about the advances in mobile technology is the sheer brilliance of the games and apps that we can use on our devices. Personally, I really enjoy puzzle games; and having a bunch of them with me at all times on my phone is great. Once such game that I have recently found is Osmos. What is Osmos? Well basically, you play the part of what can only be described as some sort of ... »

Happy Fifth Birthday Android!

Happy Fifth Birthday Android!

Today marks the 5th anniversary of Androids début to the world. Way back in 2007 Apple announced that it was taking the mobile market by storm with the release of the iPhone. Over a year later Google vowed to knock Apple from their smartphone perch and my god have they done that. Android has come such a long way in the 5 short years of it’s life that it’s turned into what is (in my h... »

Going Android at work part 5: The long view

Going Android at work part 5: The long view

Let’s get to the big question: Is Android a suitable OS with which to get work done. The answer is mostly a yes, but with caveats. In the last month or so I’ve been using Android to get work done, I’ve been mostly surprised by what I could accomplish. I could email, write, move batches of files, edit photos and PDFs and more. In tests, I was even able to update a WordPress blog t... »

Going Android at work part 4: Photo editing and PDFs

It’s been about a week since my last post on going Android at work. So far much of my time spent work on Android has been a lot more productive than I even suspected. I’ve talked about hardware here a little — I’ve essentially used the two best Android devices available in the Asus Transformer Infinity and the Nexus 7. But the real power behind Android has been the software... »

Going Android at work part 3: Get me my files!

Going Android at work part 3: Get me my files!

There are a lot of reasons people prefer Android over iOS – choice, openness, Google service integration and more. But one of the biggest reasons to go Android if you’re going mobile is the fact that you have access to your file system. This reason alone makes iOS a non-starter for me. I like putting files where I want them and I like to find them where I put them. And I prefer to orga... »

Going Android at work part 2: The writing life

Going Android at work part 2: The writing life

I’m the editor of a small weekly newspaper and run its website. I do a lot of different things, but what I spend do more than anything else is write and edit text documents. When I first started working with documents on a Mac (that was what the newspaper where I worked used) I wrote with Corel’s Word Perfect. Opening Office documents required translation software. It was a pain. That ... »
