Score one for non-Apple companies. Apple's pinch to zoom patent has been invalidated: http://bgr.com/2012/12/19/apple-pinc...lidate-260015/

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Jelly Defense is also $0.99

I believe Jelly Defense and Swiftkey was an Amazon AOTD.

I got NFS MW and it is large, takes up like 2gb of space.

Edit: Dungeon Raid is also 99 cents

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

I really probably shouldn't buy Chrono Trigger yet again for another platform.

It has some pretty bad reviews that are critical of the controls FWIW.

Yeah, the inability to move apps to my sd card on the S3 combined with some of the sizes of newer "premium" games is making the 16 GB seem much smaller.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Why as so many DROID apps so invasive when it comes to phones access/privacy? Do Apple apps have this issue? I've passed up so many seemingly cool apps after reading what all they have access too...

iOS is much better in this regard, in ios 6, you have to specifically authorize personal data to an app, not a blanket approval like android, and you can deny the personal data and the app should work, depending on what it is doing of course.

Apple also screens apps much more carefully .

Sorry, i posted it but when I came back a few hours later, the thing was showing that it wasn't posted (stuck on the quick reply screen) so I posted again. Then I deleted the post, but it didn't show up as deleted as it was stuck on the delete screen. Guess the browser on my new iPad doesn't like androids.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Got bored of waiting and downloaded/installed the OTA update for my Razr Maxx (it's 4.1.2). Love Jelly Bean, like having a brand new phone for the 3rd time.

I don't have my hdmi cable with me so I can't be certain but it's listed in the system menu so I have to assume yes.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Interesting, prior to this Samsung was offering a 50% off coupon for accessories if you registered your phone. I used that to get a $50 battery charger with spare battery for $30 after shipping.
