Posted by wicked January - 28 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Nexus_6_Official_4573If you’ve been waiting for a deal on the Nexus 6, T-Mobile is offering a $48 discount on all variants of the phone with a promo code. With the Nexus 6 being so new (and relatively expensive for a Nexus device) you might want to take advantage of this before it goes away.

The promo code NEXUS6DEAL will save you $48 when buying either a 32 GB or 64 GB Nexus 6, but it looks like they’re only offering the blue colored device. Still, for almost a full $50 off, that might be enough to convince you to not worry too much about the color of the phone.

Never run out of space with IDrive 1TB Hard Drive, 10TB Cloud Bundle [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 26 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

If you’ve always been a worrywart when it came to your smartphone’s remaining free space, even with, say, a 128 GB microSD card, then do we have the deal for you. With this latest Android Community Deal, you don’t get one but two sweet storage solutions courtesy of IDrive. Not only do you get a 1 TB wireless hard drive to keep your files close to you when you need it, you also get a year’s worth of 10 TB cloud storage for even more space when you need it.

The IDrive Wi-Fi Wireless 1TB Hard Drive is a storage and backup solution for those who need more than what any microSD or internal storage can offer but without being chained to cables. That said, a USB 3.0 port is also available for even more speed if you need it. With wireless transfers, you can avail of cloud-like storage but without going through slow and congested Internet pipes. And since the data on the drive is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption, you can rest assured that your data is safe even in the case of loss or theft.

To complement this physical hard drive, IDrive also has 10 TB of cloud storage up for grabs. Pretty much like having your own Dropbox or Google Drive space, with you in total control of your data. With the same 256-bit AES encryption, your data remains safe from prying eyes. The service also offers automatic Facebook and Instagram backup.

You get both of these storage options for only $97 instead of the regular $475, a rather good 75 percent discount. Of course, both work not just with Android but with a wide array of devices and operating systems. Do note that the 10 TB Cloud Pro Personal subscription is only good for one year. The second year will be offered at a discounted price of $59, but after that regular rates apply.

It’s back to school with the Android Game Dev Bundle [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 23 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

What could be cooler than making your own Android app? Why, making your own Android game, of course! And now’s your chance, again, to learn how. We’re bringing back one of the hottest items off our Android Community Deals rack. Learn how to make your own game, with programming or not. Learn how to program for Android, game or not. Heck, learn how to program, whether it’s for Android or not! All with our sweet Android Game Developer Bundle.

For learning how to code for Android, we have two courses just for you, one for introducing you to Android programming, no matter your starting level, and one for familiarizing you with the intricacies of Android 5.0 Lollipop itself. But perhaps you’re already familiar with Java and Android. Then you might want to dip your toes into C# programming, which will be quite useful for what’s coming next.

Of course, you’re here to learn how to make games, and we definitely have courses just for that. If you haven’t had any experience getting your hands dirty with programming yet, maybe you want to whet your appetite learning how to modify and reskin already existing games. If you’re starting to feel more adventurous, you can even start making your own games, no programming required. And when you’re finally committed to the cause, two Unity3D courses will be waiting for you, one that will guide you through making your own 2D game and another for going deeper into Unity3D with C#.

All of that you can get for a measly price of $49. That’s almost a total 70 hours of content, plus lectures and exercises. 7 courses all for the price of one. Get the Android Game Developer Bundle now from Android Community Deals.

Design your own games with this “pay what you want” course set [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

You may have gotten some programming chops from our previous Android app development courses, but that’s only half the tools you’ll need when making a game. The other half, game design, requires a different kind of mindset, a different set of tools. Luckily, we now also have a few courses just for that very purpose, and you get to pay what you want for these four courses from our Game Design Bundle.

Unlike our previous Android Community Deals highlights, this one has a specific mechanic, not unlike what Humble Bundle does for its games or ebooks. For a certain minimum amount, you get two out of four of the courses available. This includes learning how to create “hand-painted” textures for your game art assets as well as a course on the mystic arts of gamification, bringing “game thinking” into anything, eve non-games.

However, if you do beat the average, which currently stands at $8.14, you unlock the other two courses. These teach you how to build games using the popular Unity 3D game engine and creation tool. You also get to learn how to create professional video game art assets with tools like Photoshop and 3D Studio Max. If you do decide to pay the recommended $49.99 price tag, you get an even higher 93 percent discount off the total price. But if you really want something to boast about, you can top the highest bidder by paying $301.

Like Humble Bundles, you also get to share some of that amount with your choice of charity, including Child’s Play, the World Wildlife Fund, and Creative Commons. So what are you waiting for? Learn and share all in one swoop with this Game Design Course Bundle from Android Community Deals.

Extreme Micro Drone 2.0 comes with its own camera [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 19 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Haven’t had enough mini drones yet? Then this new Android Community Deal might just be for you. The Extreme Micro Drone 2.0 is as its name says, micro, but don’t pan it just because of its size. Unlike some other super small drones we’ve had before, this one comes with its own swiveling camera, making it ideal not just for tricks and mayhem, but for capturing those moments as well. And now it comes with a pretty sweet price tag as well.

Not everyone has the time, skill, or money for a more serious drone but some of us would still like to experience the fun and thrills of a flying robot slash action camera. For the rest of us, a breed of micro drones have cropped up that bring all those in a smaller package and a more affordable price, like this Extreme Micro Drone, version 2.0.

But don’t mistake this drone as a toy, although it indeed looks and feels like one. Or rather, consider it as a very capable toy. Despite weighing just over an ounce, the drone is capable not only of flying 400 feet away from the remote controller, it is also durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use. It also has stabilizers so that it can quickly correct its position even if you start it at a vertical angle. A pre-programmed algorithm can make it perform quick flips, which seem to be a trend with small bots. Best of all, it has a 640 pixel micro camera module with a swiveling lens for capturing video from any angle.

All of these you get for only $74.99, a good 46 percent discount from its original $139 price tag. So if you’re into drones but want a smaller but still capable companion, do check out the Extreme Micro Drone 2.0 from Android Community Deals.

Get 2 years of online protection with NordVPN [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 16 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

While we certainly benefit from the internet and everything it offers to make our lives easier and better, so too have criminals. Our cyber world opens the door to hackers, and thieves who wish to use the internet to further their own illegal initiatives at your expense. Utilizing a VPN service is a key way to protect yourself from online threats, and now we’ve got a deal that will allow you to do that in an affordable way: get a 2 year subscription to NordVPN, available at 67% off for a limited time at Android Community Deals.

For those who may not know, a VPN is a virtual private network. With a VPN, you can remain completely anonymous and fully protected when online. If you frequent WiFi hotspots, corporate networks, or cellular data networks, a VPN is an absolute must.

With your 2 year subscription to NordVPN, your information is double encrypted, making any internet connection – public or otherwise – completely secure. They have a strict ‘no log’ policy, which means your activities aren’t recorded so your data will never be compromised, and it features an automatic kill switch that disconnects you from the internet immediately if your VPN connection drops.

The features of this service, though, do not end there. With NordVPN, you can connect two devices at the same time, there are no data limits, and it’s super simple to set up and use. Plus, this service is available at an incredibly low price which always helps.

Make your internet environment a safer one. Protect yourself with a 2 year subscription to NordVPN, just $39 at Android Community Deals for a limited time.

Learn to make Lollipop apps with Bitfountain Android Course [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 15 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Almost everyone nowadays has an idea for the next great mobile app, but not everyone follows through with them, mostly because of lack of knowledge if not the lack of time. Fortunately for Android lovers, Google is making things easier with the Android Studio suite of tools. And to help you get familiar with the new tool, Bitfountain has a rather extensive course that will take you from beginner to expert when it comes to Android app development. And best of all, it’s now offered with a rather hefty discount!

Programming and app development is becoming en vogue and some schools are integrating such courses into their regular curricula. But let’s face it, it’s not exactly a walk in the park and not everyone has the luxury of going to school for it. The next best thing, then, would be for someone to personally guide you by proxy, and that is where instructional videos and lectures come in. Bitfountain’s Android course takes you through from beginning to end, starting with Java all the way to more advanced topics like Google’s API and SQLite, all using the shiny new Android Studio 1.0 integrated development environment (IDE).

And don’t think that this is some outdated material. The course also covers the latest Android 5.0 version, including instructions in that fancy Material Design language. As a bonus, it even teaches some good programming practice by introducing you to Git source code version management. All these, delivered in over 30 hours of video lectures and more than 10 app building exercises, can be yours for only $89, a fraction of its original $499. Get the Bitfountain Android Lollipop course now at Android Community Deals.

SKEYE Nano Drone is back with a price vengeance [DEALS]

Posted by wicked January - 12 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Personal drones are all the craze of late, but not all of us would like a man sized flying robot to carry around when all we just want is something to fly around for fun and mayhem. For those of us who want to keep things small and simple, very literally, the SKEYE Nano Drone is perhaps the answer. Lucky for us, this little flying bot is on Android Community Deals and carries with it an equally lightweight price.

This nano drone is so small that it barely takes up the palm of your hand at 4.0 cm x 4.0 cm x 2.2 cm. Its gamepad-like controller is almost larger than the drone itself. And yet the robot is quite capable of flying well, with a 6-axis flight control system and gyro sensitivity. It has three flight modes to accommodate beginners, more experienced drone pilots and experts.

One thing that is missing from this super tiny drone is a camera, which isn’t exactly surprising given its size and its price. Even a VGA one would have probably been fun, though, and there are some other drones that offer some competition for a bit of a price upgrade. That said, the drone has “aerobatic flip” powers, which is always fun to impress, or annoy, people.

The SKEYE Nano Drone is now up on Android Community Deals for $34.99, a sweet 41 percent discount from $60.

Stream music and calls with the Panorama Bluetooth Speaker

Posted by wicked January - 9 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

If you are like most, you have all of your music stored in or streaming from your smartphone or tablet. That means the only way you can listen to your tunes is through headphones or with the subpar external speakers that come equipped with most devices. In some situations, like when a party breaks out, those options just won’t cut it. For times when you need to listen to your music loud and proud, you should have the Panorama Bluetooth Speaker at your disposal.

The Panorama Bluetooth Speaker is a listening solution for today’s on-the-go music enthusiast. It delivers portable sound at pretty crazy price (just $24.99 from AC Deals), while offering a relatively small and convenient package. It measures at only 8.5” long, so it’s super easy to take with you anywhere you need your music. Plus, it offers a lengthy 6 hours of playback on a single charge and boasts a crystal clear signal range of up to 30 feet. That means it’s the perfect device to keep the tunes rocking through the length of your party, and you can move it around your house to a place that’s convenient to you.

The Panorama Bluetooth Speaker also functions as a speakerphone, allowing you to remain hands free throughout the duration of your call. Just pair the Panorama to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

When you have your music stored in a personal listening device, you can still play it loud and proud for all to hear. Get high quality sound with the Panorama Bluetooth Speaker, $24.99 with free US shipping (international shipping option also available), at Android Community Deals.
