Like quizzes? Yeah, we do too. Check out Android Community Quiz and Quizmaster. The applications by XDA member Just Me combined offer a challenging Android based quiz for your pleasure and enjoyment. The neat thing about the application is that you can add your own questions, increasing the database and challenge of the game. All you have to do is upload your question with the correct answer along side two incorrect answers and upload it. These applications are free from the developer, but as of now, they’re only available to XDA members. Hit the break to check out some more information from the developer and to snag the source link along with some more screen shots. You can also jump directly to the application thread here if you want. Don’t forget to let us know what you think of it in the comments below. And feel free to provide feedback for the developer so he/she can improve the application. Read more
That’s right, the Pokemon Team has announced a free game for Android and iOS called (or roughly translated) Pokemon Say Tap. Yes, it’s not a shoddy third party attempt at dodging copyright law, but the actual Pokemon Team working on an app for Android and iOS. This move comes as a surprise for two reasons. First, mobile gaming platforms (iOS, Android, WP7, etc) are starting to be called direct competitors with mobile gaming platforms (Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, etc). The second reason for this surprise is Nintendo’s own Satoru Iwata’s formal stance against free games. He has openly stated he does not like the idea of free games that you pay for in game. Whether or not he had a change of heart (we’re thinking not), this game is slated for summer in Japan. Here’s to hoping it makes its way overseas and to other places around the world.

Remember last month when we reported about the Andy Pad? When you go to their site, it hasn’t changed much, it still gives you the countdown and some basic information.
The manufacturers of the Andy Pad have announced a few details.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the price” said Andy Pad Business Development Executive George Eastmead “but we’re willing to confirm at this stage that on release, the Andy Pad will market for less than £200”. That is about $326.
Regular TalkAndroid readers may have noticed that I have been strangely absent the past week. (What do you mean you haven’t noticed a difference? That’s not nice!) Well, there’s a very good reason for this! You see, this was there was this small event called the Electronic Entertainment Expo (known within the industry as E3) — perhaps some of you have heard of it. For those unfamiliar with the event, E3 is an opportunity for video game publishers, developers, and hardware manufacturers to get together with the media and show off what they’re working on. Well, there was a bit of an Android presence there this year, and in order to bring our dear readers every last drop of Android news available, TalkAndroid was there! That’s right, I sacrificed my time, money, and my feet (and I’m REALLY serious about that last one!) to scour the Los Angeles Convention Center to bring you guys every scrap of Android coverage I could find! While there will be several in-depth looks upcoming in the next 3-4 days, I thought I’d give you guys a little sneak peek of what we have in store!
