Finally, EA’s sequel to the amazingly popular casual defense game and Mad Fingers’ highly anticipated FPS is now available for download via Google Play!

Plants VS Zombies 2 is now up for Android after some two months of waiting and/or playing it over the iOS back in August. EA’s popular defense game that pits plants against brain eating zombies will once again give those fingers a workout. The game was spotted initially in Australia and New Zealand last week but it came with a quite heavy 169MB download weight, so you might as well leave some room should you want to get busy AGAIN.

As promised, Mad Finger appointed DT2 with some upgrades, including new weapons, intense graphics and yes, more zombies.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 up for Google Play download “very soon”/android-apps/games/plants-vs-zombies-2-up-for-google-play-download-very-soon/ /android-apps/games/plants-vs-zombies-2-up-for-google-play-download-very-soon/#comments Mon, 07 Oct 2013 02:58:03 +0000 /?p=3378 plant vs zombie android 300x275 Plants vs. Zombies 2 up for Google Play download very soon

I know EA prioritized the iOS when they rolled out Plants vs. Zombies 2 but as we all say, “late is better than never” simply hits the spot right here.

“Very soon” is all that we got when it comes to the sequel of the addictive defense game, but at least we will have our hands (read: fingers) on PVZ2 and will be available on devices running Android Gingerbread 2.3 and up. It’s free-to-play and, just like those games that will be released on the same timeline, in-game purchases, power-ups and the like are to be anticipated that will help you finish the game.

As of this writing, Plants vs. Zombies 2 are currently under soft launching in other countries. The Philippines, however is somewhat on the later pages but we’ll update you guys once it’s here, or somewhere near the Pacific Ocean. icon smile Plants vs. Zombies 2 up for Google Play download very soon

quick office Quickoffice for Android now free; to add 10GB of Google Drive space for a downloadQuickoffice, Microsoft’s rendition of their already too familiar and easy to use word and document processing tool is now for free via Android’s Play Store and the iOS’ App Store. I’m sure most of us (if not all) would like to have a document editor and reader right at our disposal and this is just the case of Google: providing us with the fastest and the most convenient way to view, edit and store MS Office documents without the hassle of formatting and alternative viewing.

I’ve been using Quickoffice since I got my tablet and I’ve got to say that it has saved my behind from that annoying voice of your editor, screaming at you to pass your articles. And as far as I’m concerned, I am more than happy to have the new version, as it will let me save my work over at Google Drive.

But wait, there’s more! Google says that if you guys install the Quickoffice by the 26th of this month, you’ll be getting an additional 10GB of Drive storage for two years! That’s right, folks! 10GB of free space for two years! Sweet offer, eh?

Madfinger’s Dead Trigger 2 to roll out October 23/android-apps/madfingers-dead-trigger-2-to-roll-out-october-23/ /android-apps/madfingers-dead-trigger-2-to-roll-out-october-23/#comments Thu, 19 Sep 2013 04:01:53 +0000 /?p=3175 dead trigger 2 Madfingers Dead Trigger 2 to roll out October 23 Who doesn’t love zombies? I’m pretty much sure that all of us have this absurd dream of living in a world infested with the Undead. But sensing that this would likely to happen (unless some chemical leaks out somewhere and turn us all into flesh eating SOBs), we’d like you to consider playing Dead Trigger instead. Madfinger recently announced that the second installment of the highly popular FPS will be hitting Play Store on October 23rd with tons of mods, chickens with rockets and, you guessed it – more zombies.

I myself is a huge Dead Trigger fan and literally all of those zombie games available and compatible with my device. But Madfinger caught me with a big smile on my face and lots of “overtime” to boot, just to get off one level.  But, hey, it’s all worth it. Part of the overhaul included in Dead Trigger 2 will be the ditching of premium currency and weapons and should be replaced by a crafting system. Players will also have their personal hideouts with NPC support as well.

Online compatibility was also hyped up and players from around the world will get to play with each other and share missions and rewards. Weekly missions and monthly content updates are expected from Madfinger to roll out. Adding to the already horrid situation that one must battle hordes of zombies on a daily basis, Dead Trigger 2 will also have a bit of a funny side. I mean, just look at the screenshot: it’s not everyday that you’ll see rocket chickens on you side.

The Success of Instagram/android-news/success-instagram/ /android-news/success-instagram/#comments Thu, 12 Apr 2012 01:32:04 +0000 /?p=2684 instagram main1 The Success of Instagram

Instagram is today’s talk of town both on iOS on Android platform. After being successful on iOS platform this photo-sharing app garnered over 30-million active users and recently it was released on Android.  Another milestone of Instagram was on Monday when they announced that Facebook will acquire the company with the whooping price of $1-billion USD even the valuation price is at 500-million, doubling the price after the week. The photo-sharing social networking site is just 17 month old and it became a total success thanks to iOS users.

Android users were jealous because the photo-sharing app is only available on Apple devices and last week it was officially launched on Android. Android welcomed the service with full open arms and 6 days after its release on Google Play Store it reaches nearly 5-million downloads.  If you think that this is a small number think again. It took Instagram for iOS 6-months to reach 6-million users and I think the total success of Instagram on Android is that it already have great foundation on iOS and they should get the credit too. designers collected instagram photos and turned into an infographic of the photo app from $0 to $1-Billion in 17-months.

Instagram for Android hit 1 plus million downloads in just 24-hours after its release/android-news/instagram-for-android-1-million-downloads/ /android-news/instagram-for-android-1-million-downloads/#comments Wed, 04 Apr 2012 15:28:18 +0000 /?p=2678 instagram downloads 620x262 Instagram for Android hit 1 plus million downloads in just 24 hours after its release

Last night when I checked Google Play Store there were only 3 downloads of the newly released Instagram for Android and after 24-hours, it set the record of 1 to 5 million plus downloads. According to Kevin Systrom, over 2,000 Android users were signing up for new accounts every single minute.

This one of the most awaited and download app for Android to date. I guess the reason for this is that Instagram was exclusive only in iOS for more than 2-years and been an active photo-social networking site since then. The current user of Instagram is around 26-million and with addition of Android on their portfolio this will give a huge boost.
