Featured Android App Review: Dance for YouTube [Entertainment]

I’ve gotta simple and fun app that will most likely cater to the younger crowd. It’s called Dance for YouTube and it was created by Fresvii. If you like music, dancing, and creating avatars, you will want to check it out. In this app, you create your own custom avatar and watch it dance to any song from YouTube or on your device. Your avatar is actually what Fresvii calls a Frenbee, which is a mystical alien creature that is from the planet Alima-75A. Frenbees love music, dancing, and playing games.

Upon opening the app, you have two main choices, My Room and the Dance Floor. There is also a settings option for setting the lighting quality and to restore your avatar to the default. It is in the My Room section that you will create your avatar. It’s pretty full-featured as you can alter face shape, eye shape, eyelash colors, eyeshadow colors, eyebrows, eye colors, nose, lips, lip colors, ears, hair style, skin colors, and cheek colors. You can also choose from different clothes including tops, bottoms, shoes, and full outfits. For accessories, you have your choice of different glasses, earrings, bracelets, and watches.

When it comes to releases, Carphone Warehouse seems to always give us a good indication on dates. Sony already announced the Xperia E budget phone, but didn’t tell us anything more than to expect it Q1 2013. Well Carphone Warehouse has a page to pre-register for the dual-SIM device, and it clearly states that it’s expected February 2013. Pricing should be around £130-£140 ($210 to $225).

Limited edition red DROID DNA for Verizon employees pictured

Verizon has been making a habit of offering special edition DROIDs to their employees. A few months ago, it was the DROID RAZR HD / RAZR MAXX HD, and now the DROID DNA gets the same treatment. As you can see the back is the same color red as the side grills that are on the normal retail model. It’s pretty cool looking, but might be a little too loud. If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these, you might want to check out eBay since you won’t find them in stores. A couple of more pictures after the break.

Google Maps for iOS is now useless because Apple is rearranging the Earth’s geography to improve Apple Maps

As you might have heard, Google released their version of Maps for iOS yesterday finally giving Apple users a proper Maps app, or so they thought. Turns out Apple had a plan all along and they are working on a complete rearrangement of the Earth’s geography. Apparently they already started renaming streets, switching the location of buildings, and destroying some landmarks. Apple CEO Tim Cook said..

“Apple is committed to providing the best user experience possible, which is why we are working to dismantle Brooklyn Bridge and put London in Canada.”

Leave it to Apple to disrupt the entire world to straighten out their mess. Head on past the break for the full video highlighting the details, and hopefully you will get a good laugh for this fine Friday morning.

Featured Android Game Review: Prehistoric Park [Casual]

If you like games where you build things like cities and roller coasters, than I have a good one for you. It’s called Prehistoric Park, and if you can’t tell by the name, it’s set in the Flinstones era. In this game you create a theme park for the stone age. If only our friendly cavemen could have had theme parks so nice, they probably would never go back to their caves.

This game works much like other builder type games in that you start with a certain amount of money and some land. The beginning tutorial helps you get started by buying your first ride and gives you all the advice to guide you to creating a “Six Flags” type of park for the stone age. It’s not all about rides in that you have to maintain them and you have to make sure your customers are happy with food, drink, and other amenities. You also have to dress up your park with items such as trees, flowers, and temples.

Facebook’s native Android app officially released

About three months ago we heard that Facebook was working on a native app for Android, and it’s finally here. No more HTML5 as it has been rebuilt in native code, which will improve speed and performance. The news feed and Timeline will be much faster whether you’re opening the app, looking at photos, or interacting with friends. Photo loading is now optimized and is faster. They also added a new story banner that’s automatically updated and will bubble up the newest stories no matter where you are in the news feed.

This release creates a solid foundation moving forward as they can now continue to tweak it and make it even faster. What I want to know is if they fixed the widget? Just in case you don’t already have it installed on your device, hit the break for download links.

Samsung Galaxy Note III rumored to sport a 6.3-inch OLED display

If you went into a cave three years ago and just came out, you probably would be shocked at the size of some of the displays that smartphones have been sporting. I remember when the DROID X was released and everyone was saying it was huge. Now that same screen size is on the DROID RAZR M (M for micro). Then there was the original Samsung Galaxy Note, which boasted a 5.3-inch display. Of course the follow up, the Galaxy Note II, pushed the envelope a little more at 5.5-inches. What’s next? Is it 6-inch displays? Well it’s not too soon to be talking Galaxy Note III, and the latest rumor is that it will sport a whopping 6.3-inch OLED display. When it comes to 6-inch displays, the Note III won’t be alone as Huawei already confirmed a 6.1-inch offering.

A year and half ago, everyone said the sweet spot was 4-inches. After spending a month or so with the DROID DNA, I now think it’s 5-inches, but as long as people are going to buy them, I see no reason why the manufacturers should slow down. However, at some point doesn’t it have to stop? Are we heading towards the Nexus 7 being a phone?
