Everything about android tablet pc [slatedroid]

It seems like it has been much longer than two years ago when the Android Market ceased to exist and we were introduced to Google Play (and weren’t very happy about it). The world didn’t end though, and Google Play has gotten a lot better over the past few years, expanding to offer Google Play Music: All Access, television shows and magazines.

During the birthday celebration, Google is giving us sweet deals for the next 24 hours on select music, movies, apps, and magazines. All of which are going to be discounted for our purchasing pleasure.

The sales don’t appear to be live quite yet here in America (it is live in other parts of the world), but hit the link below start refreshing for when the deals go up. Once it’s up, we will update the post with the full list of what’s on sale.

Jet Set Radio grinds its way to Android devices

Posted by wicked November - 30 - 2012 - Friday Comments Off

Sega has released a new game for us that should be received with open arms. For some, this will be all about the nostalgia. For others, a brand new experience filled with cell shaded graphics, police dodging, and tagging anything in sight with just enough spray paint. Welcome, to Jet Set Radio!

The story of this game is that several brightly colored and oddly dressed street gangs are battling it out in Tokyo to see who is the toughest group out there. While many games today would probably address this in the same way, Jet Set Radio did something completely different: battle by way of graffiti. Skating around the city and doing flips of every sort, all the while collecting spray paint cans is definitely a challenge. Add police and a Detective who doesn’t take stuff from anybody, and you have a game that will keep you glued to your device for quite some time.

This mobile version of the game sports high resolution visuals, the same catchy tunes from the original release, and more than 10 playable characters, all with their unique skill set. The only thing we can hope for is an update that will have controller support in the near future. While the virtual controls do work fine, having a real analog stick will make those turns a lot more smoother.

So what are you waiting for? You can find this classic at the Play Store for $4.99. Be sure to have a good Wi-Fi connection when downloading, as this one comes in at just under 600MB.

Legacy Play Store Allows You To See A List of Your Purchased Apps Again

Posted by wicked July - 22 - 2012 - Sunday Comments Off

Before the Android Market switched over to the Play Store the Market allowed you to see a list of your purchased apps under a “Not installed” section. After the transition to the Play Store, at some point along the update line, the list of paid apps went away. If you’re wanting the ability to see that list again, Paul O’Brien over at Modaco, has solved the problem. You can get the Legacy Play Store app that will solve your problem by bringing back the “Not installed” list of apps.

Paul was able to get the old version of the Play Store client and with some tinkering around, he was able to make it run alongside the official Play Store. Once again, in the Legacy Play Store your apps will have a My Apps screen with a list of all the paid apps you’ve purchased that are not installed on your device. The current version of the Play Store has a tab for all of your apps that are installed or you’ve ever installed, and lumps these together with any apps you’ve purchased. If you’ve purchased a  lot of apps, you may find yourself having trouble finding the small handful of paid apps you want for your respective devices.

You’re able to download the APK from the source link below. You might be able to install it on it’s own on Jelly Bean devices, but he recommends installing it under root and pushing it to  /system/app and chmod it to 644.

Access All Google Play Services from Anywhere in the World

Posted by wicked July - 4 - 2012 - Wednesday Comments Off


With the recent announcement of the launch of TV shows and Magazines on Google Play, Google now offers a wide range of portable, cloud-based multimedia experience for its users including Apps, Games, Books, Music, Movies, TV shows, and Magazines. Unfortunately, access to everything beyond apps and games is limited to US-residents only. Since there does exist a world beyond the US (we have personally confirmed it, believe it or not), XDA Senior Member kishankpadiyar has shared with us a method to expand that access worldwide, as long as you have a rooted Android device and Google Play Store 3.7.11.

Edit: It appears that XDA Member m.sabra originally wrote about this method a few months back when Google added Books and Movies to Play Store upon re-branding it from Android Market. You can visit this forum thread to join the original discussion.

While the method isn’t exactly short, it isn’t all that hard either. First of all, you will be required to install Market Enabler from the APK and DROIDvpn from Play Store. Then, launch DROIDvpn and register for an account. You now have everything you need to make it work. For the rest of the instructions and more details, head over to the forum thread.

Fake Angry Birds peddlers fined £50,000

Posted by wicked May - 28 - 2012 - Monday Comments Off

Ah, sweet, sweet justice. Instead of the slap on the wrist and a ban from the Google Play Store as usual, the developer of fake versions of several popular Android games like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope will get a more lasting punishment. According to the BBC, The British government has sentenced a Latvian developer to a £50,000 fine for counterfeit apps posted on the Android Market in November of last year.

In addition to the fine (which is enough to send most mobile developers into bankruptcy on its own) the unnamed developer must pay an additional £28,000 to the victims of its sneaky deeds. All told, that’s about $125,000 USD in fines, all for the fairly ubiquitous practice of a bait-and-switch app that makes its “customers” sign up for a scam SMS line that charges fees directly to their phone service bills.

The fine is the first of its kind for the mobile industry, and hopefully it’ll enter the minds of malicious developers everywhere. After all, you’d have to be crazy to post a pirated video of The Avengers to the Movies section of the store thanks to the MPAA’s legendary prosecution arm, so why should apps be any different? Thanks, Britain.

Tizen OS set to run Android apps

Posted by wicked May - 15 - 2012 - Tuesday Comments Off

Have you ever heard of the Tizen Operating System? Neither had we until today however what we do know about it is that the HTML 5 based, open source platform is looking to Android’s flourishing Play Store to give it a leg-up. Tizen has clearly taken some inspiration from RIM who famously solved the riddle of how to attract developers to a new platform by sidestepping it completely and simply loading the Android Market to the Blackberry Playbook.

Open Mobile is the company behind the trick, a solution it has named ‘Application Compatibility Layer‘ (ACL) which supposedly allows you to run Android applications on a Tizen device with 100% compatibility and maximum responsiveness. Impressive indeed if the claims are well founded.

Check out the video below that demonstrates Android applications running on Tizen. Will you be keeping your eye on the development of this new platform? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
