Infinity Blade: Angry Birds Killer Game

Infinity Blade a 3D sword iPhone fight game by Epic Games has made a new record on Apple App Store. The game has managed to bring profits just in a week after its release on App Store and got the title of the fastest-grossing app in the all history of the Apple's money-machine store.



It is known that more than 300,000 people are playing the 3D iPhone game on Apple's Game Center network and it means a flat $1.8 million in game sales ($5.99 a copy). However, Epic Games CEO has stated that these numbers are even low because not all gamers are there who bought Infinity Blade.

Infinity Blade is a very impressive iPhone game, especially the graphics render quality are top-notch.

Infinity Blade currently outsells legendary Angry Birds iPhone game.

Sprint Allowing Techs to Flash Epic 4Gs with Leaked Froyo Back to Stock Eclair?



epic

Rumor has it (via Android Guys) that Sprint is telling their tech support team to flash any broken Samsung EPIC 4Gs that come in with the leaked 2.2 upgrade back to Eclair. From the sounds of it, Sprint won’t have a way to roll the final update out – whenever that should happen – to those who flashed any of the leaks as they were able to do with the HTC EVO 4G.

AG also questioned if this were even legal: no, it isn’t. Having been the victim of a failed hard drive in the past few weeks, Geek Squad offered to back my data up for me and reinstall the operating system on a new hard drive (for which I had no disk, so they charged extra). After asking how much that would cost (I’d never pay them such ridiculous amounts of money to do something so easy. I was only there for the new hard drive.) they informed me I’d need to give  them express permission to do so. (There could be private information on these things, you know.)

But if they are indeed doing it, let them: you’ll have no other choice unless you root the device and back your data up yourself. Using Odin to return to a stock ROM would also wipe your phone clean, as well, so you’re out of luck either way.

For those in this unfortunate predicament, I’m planning to publish a tutorial on how to use Odin to get back to stock Android 2.1 from ANY build. It’s the least (and, simultaneously, the most) I could do after I erroneously endorsed the upgrade as official. (Yes, I know you’ll still want off with my head.)

Motorola Believes their DROID 2 Didn’t Go “Boom” in Man’s Ear



droid_2_blood
Last week, we questioned a story on Fox news in Dallas where a man claimed his Motorola Droid 2 exploded in his ear, causing him to get cut and forcing him to the emergency room. We questioned it: things just didn’t add up. We expected Motorola wouldn’t outright say “you’re right, our phone is hazardous. Here’s a bazillion dollars!” And they didn’t:

[T]he only things that could explode in a phone would have resulted in a phone that did not work, yet this phone worked. And there was no explosive damage to the device (things inside blown outward, etc).
Sounds a lot like what I said last week:

What do you guys think? I’ve never heard of a phone just “exploding” (except for the iPhone, but I have my reservations on that, too), and the damage area just doesn’t make sense. The processor, GPU, and battery are nowhere near the apparent point of “explosion”, and even if they were, I’m certain a “blast” would do more damage to the backside of the phone than the face of it. If any blast did occur, the CPU or GPU would be the most plausible culprits [in that area of the phone]: why is the phone still working? And what are the chances that it would happen as he was talking on the phone?
And there you have it. This is turning into something like a good soap opera. Can’t wait to see what the bloody ear man has to say about this!

LG Optimus One Rockets Past 2 Million Units Sold



LG Optimus One
It’s a good thing LG announced yesterday that Gingerbread would be coming to the LG Optimus One, otherwise they’d be dealing with what is now just over 2 million owners of the handset inevitably complaining about their outdated OS version. That’s right. LG has just given word that the 2 millionth Optimus One handset has been sold.

That is just 25 days after they announced the handset broke the 1 million mark 40 days after release, a pretty remarkable feat. Chalk it up to the low cost, quality product, and take no prisoners attitude that has brought the handset to nearly every corner of the globe on almost any carrier you could name. Impressive.

Google Apps for Newer Archos Devices Out



archos-101-620x347
The Archos is one of the finer tablets on the market right now, but it doesn’t have Google apps. Bummer. XDA will never let that keep their devices down, though, and have released a new version of gapps4archos to play nice with the new line of tablets Archos just released. Full instructions can be had over at XDA. (And always remember to read carefully. Oh, and we’re not responsible if your tablet takes a katana to your face.) [via AG]

Gingerbread Features Measures to Prevent Touch-Event Highjacking







lookoutlogoLookout Mobile Security was recently in the news when their application for Android was able to locate a stolen car after it was highjacked from its owner, but that isn’t the only sort of highjacking they are concerned with. During the course of developing their own mobile application and after observing common tactics used by malicious Android programs, they forwarded a huge piece of advice to the Android team, and Google’s crew responded accordingly.

Up until Android 2.3, the OS was vulnerable to touch-event highjacking. This was accomplished when a false UI was placed over an applications true interface to trick users into clicking on ads, make purchases, install malicious apps, wipe phone data, or grant unwanted permissions. An example would be an application that on the surface may look like, say, a game where the user taps a “Start” button, while in reality that is a false layer overtop of a checkbox altering system settings.

In Android 2.3, the team at Google has implemented certain functions that will prevent apps from being vulnerable to touch-event highjacking. This is accomplished by allowing a layer to be interacted with only when it is the topmost visible layer. Developers will still need to take steps to protect their applications and users, but it isn’t much more than a few lines of code. Good on Lookout for, well, looking out for all Android users, not just those using their mobile apps. For more tech-y details and some of the developer nitty gritty, see the source link below.

Ekahau Launches Android App for IT Gurus, $299 Price Tag is Not for the Faint of Heart



tab-and-galaxys
If you are in charge of a large wireless network, being able to monitor who is accessing it and track signal strength over its coverage is a real help when pinpointing problems, and Ekahau is the company to do it. Their new network survey app gives you the power to troubleshoot a wireless network right form your Android=powered handset or tablet. The app even provides you with a graphical map of your network’s infrastructure. Just don’t think this is for your everyday IT enthusiast or for diagnosing your home network. Unless, of course, the price tag of $299.00 is chump change to you.

The app can be purchased from the Ekahau website, but we don’t see too many individuals dropping that sort of cash. This is more the stuff of large companies or IT consultants. Still, apps tailored for the professional world are just one more sign of the maturity the Android Market is reaching.

BioLock Coming Along Nicely, Biometric Authentication Not Far Off for Android



Now that front-facing cameras are all the rage, there is a bit more than just video conferencing that they can be useful for. A promising and interesting use of the now common hardware is biometric authentication, through eye and/or facial scanning as a mean to unlock a device or private files stored on the device. Blue Planet Apps has been working away on their own BioLock, and from the latest demo video they have offered up, it is coming along quite nicely.

So just what sort of uses could we expect? Here is what Blue Planet has to say about it (as well as talk for both consumer and enterprise versions):
“As for BioLock, it has many possibilities. We have ideas for a consumer and enterprise model, the consumer model will replace the lock screen, allow users to lock as much of the phone as possible, contacts, dialer, phone numbers, apps, etc…
The enterprise model is a whole nother beast, it connects to Microsoft Azure cloud, and does the authentication off the device, so the scan is taken, sent to the cloud, authenticated and sent back. It is currently designed to use a 1024bit Polymorphic Cipher which, should by some miracle someone intercepts the encrypted hash, is uncrackable. This is designed to be adapted into the end users applications, for example, a Banking app, or government email app that can encrypt messages before sending them (wikileaks would never have happened). Healthcare, etc… the list goes on and on.

We have some other ideas for this technology, as off shoots of BioLock, using the FFC (Front Facing camera) to scan a users face while playing a game and send targeted marketing, or for social media communication during gaming.

The end result is that with our smartphones and tablets rapidly replacing our desktops and laptops, most of our future financial and other secure transactions will be over mobile/wireless networks and will need much more robust security. Nothing is more secure or reliable than YOU. Iris being the MOST accurate, then Face. We are also going to add Voice verification in the consumer model of BioLock and users will have the option to choose one or a combination of options to lock down their device.

Blue Planet Apps is currently working very closely with Samsung to develop BioLock on Samsung devices, with the possible result being that Samsung will deploy it on all its devices as part of the AndroidOS. We have also been talking to Nokia for deployment of BioLock on the upcoming Meego platform and other platforms as well.”
No word on when exactly this sort of tech will come to the general public other than the above mention of Samsung and Nokia devices shipping with BioLock in the future, but we are positively giddy about the day we can play Mission: Impossible and go from lock screen to homescreen just by eyeing up that front-facing lens.

Have You Seen Samsung’s Turkish Android Market?



andromarketTurk
While this isn’t news, per se, we just caught a look at Samsung’s Android Market for Turkish handsets via Droid Dog and thought we’d share a look here. A pretty slick looking affair that would go great with the green and black stylings of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), don’t you think? File this away under “wishful thinking” for the future of Google’s home-brewed Android app store.

‘Tis the Season: Check Out These Android Christmas Ornaments



clay-androids2-600x448
Thanksgiving has passed, the Eight Nights of Hanukkah have waned away, so we all know what that means. It’s time to trim the tree! And what better way for a geek to deck the halls than with a set of awesome Android Christmas ornaments. Before you get to excited, we must burst the bubble and let you know these can’t be purchased anywhere. They are the handiwork of some readers of one of our favorite blogs, DroidLife, and they are one of a kind.

Made from clay and painted up with festive scarves, this is the kind of thing that makes the Android community so cool. Here is a bit of advice for their makers, though: make more and sell them, there are people who wouldn’t think twice to drop down some money for a set! The Angry Birds ornament alone would be a big hit on Etsy.

PhanMail Friday: Your Questions Answered [12/10/11]







phanmailWhat’s that? Friday is here? Of course it is! And so is our bag of PhanMail. It’s getting harder and harder to narrow down the best questions every week, so keep them coming! Just head over to our PhanMail contact form to submit your own question. Read on to get this week’s fix.

I formatted my Nexus One and was wondering whether there was any way for me to retrieve the backup of my text messages. There is a folder labelled ‘Backup’ on my SD card and it contains a file called Messages.arc.

Chances are after a format your text messages are gone for good, unless of course you backed up your device beforehand and have the technical know-how to restore your lost messages. I’m sure a friendly commenter will quickly correct me if I’m wrong, so you might want to stay tuned there. In the mean time, the best advice to avoid losing messages in the future would be to back them up using an application such as SMS Backup and Restore, Lookout, or WaveSecure. Those come to mind, but there are certainly others to look into.
I have three mobiles HTC Desire 2.2, Motorola Milestone 2.1 (sad), and a SE X10 on 1.6 (crying), all got the same 3.5mm headphone jack but I cant use one headset with different phone… If they are designed to not be used with others then what’s the point of standardising the ports… I also noticed the touch screen sensor on milestone doesn’t work correctly when charging using a blackberry charger…

This is a strange observation. I can’t think of any reason why the same set of headphones would not be compatible with all three devices, because, as you said, they are all standard headphone jacks. It would be hard to pinpoint the issue without the actual model of headphones as a reference.

The charger issue is slightly different, as even though certain chargers will be compatible and provide the juice necessary to charge a device it was not designed for, side effects — though not always as obvious  as the one you ran into — aren’t necessarily out of the ordinary.
I purchased my Droid X the first day of its July release and within a few weeks someone showed me how to switch to the Swype option that came on my unit. My question is this – how is the Swype software that came with my X different than the beta versions that have been closed, opened and upgraded over the past few months? How do I keep the version on my X up-to-date with the latest Swype released? (My Swype version is 1.64.40.9380 and I’m using Android 2.2)

The Swype version installed out of the box on the Motorola Droid X is outside of the realm of the private beta. That beta exists to test elements of the software that may eventually make it to handsets that came with the text input software pre-installed. Ultimately the manufacturer and carrier will decide on that, and the Swype version would most likely be updated alongside an OTA update for the Android operating system.

Because of this, the versions of Swype present on devices at launch is typically a few steps behind the one those taking part in the private beta receive. From time to time the Swype team has opened up the beta, as you have mentioned, so if you are a big Swype fan like me just stay tuned to your number one Android news source (that’s Phandroid, duh) and we’ll be sure to let all you Swype fans know right away.
Which is actually better,Swype OR SlideIT?

As I said above, I am a huge Swype fan, so obviously that is my answer to this question. It may vary from user to user, but it’s hard to argue against the software that made it possible to break through the speed texting barrier like never before. That being said, there are several other really innovative text input options worth checking out, including 8pen, BlindType, and SwiftKey, all of which I would probably take over SlideIT.
I’m a faithful Droid X owner and have never had an issue with anything…until now! Some of my contacts (specifically numbers) are disappearing. I assume it has something to do with the linking of my gmail and facebook accounts. Why is it not possible to merge the contacts and have them all saved in gmail?! I am becoming increasingly frustrated with this issue of losing contact info but truly love android. Please help!

You may want to take a look at your sync settings located under “Settings > Accounts & Sync.” Make sure under the Google Account options you have Sync Contacts selected, and all names and numbers logged into your DX should automatically get backed up in the cloud to your GMail address book.

Facebook also has several sync option accessible via the application’s settings menu. You can choose between syncing all contacts, syncing only the ones currently in your phone’s address book, and no sync at all. Also, make sure Facebook syn is enabled in the Accounts & Sync settings menu.

If you still experience issues with your contacts, you may want to take the phone into your local VZW and see if they can help.
My Sprint contract has been up for the past 2 months and I have been holding out for a phone that is either equal to or better than the Evo and Epic. Do you see in the very near future a better phone being released from Sprint or should I just cave and go with the Evo?

As of right now, we haven’t caught wind of any major releases from Sprint in the next few months that will rival the EVO and Epic 4G, but we don’t expect things to stay dormant for long. The HTC EVO Shift 4G (HTC Knight) is right around the bend, but will most likely be a smaller version of the EVO while keeping similar specs.

With dual-core and 4G handsets coming to Verizon and AT&T potentially as early as January/February, we don’t think Sprint will stay out of the game that long. But as always, I must say the EVO 4G and Epic are as good a choice today as they were at their launches. Unless you absolutely have to have the latest handset and technology, you really can’t go wrong with either.
Are you guys looking into getting a new comment system? The current one doesn’t allow editing, tiered replies, or ‘likes’. I know for me, I get more involved in the comments if I can directly reply to someone and have people like my comments. I know quite a few people use Disqus, it allows all of these features as well as keeps track of your ‘likes’ and comments. Thanks for all the work you guys do, keep it up.

For this answer I turned to the man with the plan himself, Mr. Rob Jackson. Here is what he had to say:

“While the comment system has much room for improvement, our development efforts are currently focused on more feature-rich experiences. We’ve recently added the ability to compare phones and use community input to provide a dynamically updated “Best Phone” feature.

We’re also launching a new version of the Phandroid App on Monday, and currently have a completely new application in closed Beta.

Improving the comment system is definintely on our to do list, it’s just a matter of where in the priorities it all fits. Thanks for your input!”

MessagEase 2.0 for Android Adds Multi-Lingual Support

VirginMobile and SaskTel Join Bell in Froyo Update for Samsung Galaxy S



samsungfroyosask
Recently we reported that Bell’s Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant began receiving its update to Android 2.2, and now Samsung is tweeting as much, also revealing that updates for the phone on Virgin Mobile and SaskTel are also now available.

As is typical with Samsung’s updates, they have decided to forego the over-the-air method in favor of their own Kies software. The general consensus is that is a big drag, but it’s a small price to pay for an updated and improved Android OS.
