DIY TESD App

I have been getting a lot of emails asking about what happened to the #TESDArmy Player podcast app (or as it was previously known as PlayEmSteveDave).  It was taken down at the request of SModCo. But, don’t fret, there are other ways to get the podcast on Android, aside from the (what I think is crummy) Stitcher app.

Below is a picture tutorial on how to add the TESD podcast to the BeyondPod app.  Either search the Play Store for beyondpod, or click here to download the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.beyondpod&hl=en

Let me know via the comments, if you have any questions!

Root Only App Store for Android?

An idea was thrown out the the world on Google+ (Koushik Dutta) for a root only android app store. A place for apps related to rooting your phone, or other mods, along with all the stuff that Google and Amazon have banned from their app stores. 

 

 I think it is a great idea.  I would love to see this happen and would love to contribute however I can.  Check out the post (at the below links) and give your own feedback.

uTorrent supporting Android file syncing

If you ever use uTorrent to download files to your PC you might find this interesting.  The uTorrent app has added a feature to it’s Alpha version that allows you to sync downloaded data to your Android device by just dragging and dropping.

First, though… A little background on torrents, for the people who are unsure..

Torrents (or more specifically .torrent files) are files that you can find all over the internets with a simple google search. These files require a torrent client to be installed and the .torrent file loaded into it.  Once that is done the application will download the requested files.

So, with this uTorrent feature, if you were to download a public domain audio book (which would be free and legal) you could transfer it directly to your phone from the uTorrent menu.

But watch out for a couple things…  Copyrighted material is illegal to download via torrent, or through any other process (just saying) and this feature is an alpha feature, and may contain bugs.  it is planned for the premium (payed) version of uTorrent that is coming soon…

A couple of points of interest…

1. Our good friend CharlieD had his “Maggie’s Cakery” app featured on the Slideme.org homepage, along with their Facebook and Twitter, for the last couple of days, so check it out.

2. The Old Android app is also featured, if you switch the tab from new to updated. Make sure you update your app to keep in touch with the new site URL: oldandroid.com

Frogger by Konami – Free Amazon Appstore App 10/26/11

Name: Frogger by Konami
Description:
For those of you of a certain age–remember video arcades? the Atari 2600?–this is an absolutely must-have app. Newbies will love it too, especially kids. It’s not just any classic video game of yesteryear–it’s FROGGER.

Blast from the Past
If you played video games in the early 1980s, you remember Frogger. Along with Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, this was one of the biggest early successes in the industry. Anybody could play Frogger–all you had to do was guide the green amphibian across the street and over the logs and turtles to his slot on the other side of the river. Simple, but totally addicting.

The Original and Best
Don’t be fooled by imitations–this is the real thing, published by the original manufacturer, Konami. You get the same look and feel, and moving your frog is smooth as silk with the slide controls. If you have trouble with sliding, you have the option of moving by tapping the screen. No more stiff joysticks to worry about!

Why? To Get to the Other Side
A frog’s world is full of danger. Speeding cars and trucks clog the four-lane freeway you must cross just to get to the riverbank–be careful you don’t end up with tire tracks on your back. You have to be equally quick and adept on the river, because the logs move fast and if you go off the edge of the screen, it’s curtains. Try to carry the cute female frogs to safety and eat the flies for bonus points, but watch out for crocodiles or you’ll become lunch yourself!

Phantom Phroggie
An interesting twist in this version is Phantom Mode, which guides you during the game by showing the route you took in your best game. In regular mode, you can post your high scores online and see who the top guns are with OpenFeint. Happy hopping!
