The ballots have been cast and the votes are in. And now we get to see the apps and games that are nearest and dearest to Android users' hearts in the first annual Players' Choice Awards organized by Google.
In line with the spirit of giving this holiday season, Sony is continuing its five weeks of free PlayStation Mobile games that it started late last November. Don't expect too much from these offerings as not only are they very casual games, they also have a very limited device coverage.
Holiday season is coming fast and with it comes the season for sales and giveaways. Sony is starting the race early and will be offering two free games every week, not for the brand new PlayStation 4, but for PlayStation Mobile devices such as the PlayStation Vita and compatible Android smartphones and tablets.
That title alone should make the heart of any fan of the never-ending Final Fantasy franchise palpitate but let's all take it in stride. Just after the release of Final Fantasy V on Android last month and with at least two more titles on the way, Square Enix is now saying that it is planning to release a modified version of Final Fantasy VI on Android and iOS this winter.
As promised last month, the simulation management game Transport Tycoon has finally made its way into mobile right on the dot. Now Android users can fulfill their entrepreneurial fantasies as they create a transportation empire that will encompass land, sea, and air.
For those who have had fantasies of building a business empire, a new yet old game is coming to Android soon that might help you satisfy those urges, at least virtually. Developers 31X and Origin8 Technologies are bringing the classic Transport Tycoon simulation game to mobile platforms and will be ready to build the roads to your kingdom on your Android devices next month.
Last month, Sony revealed the Xperia Z Ultra's specs, showing offering the rumored 6.4-inch full HD display and powerful hardware under the hood. We got a look at the handset in action in some promotional videos, including one that featured the Smart Bluetooth headset, and now word has surfaced that the smartphone will be available in the UK on September 13.
Rovio has been teasing the release of Tiny Thief for some time now. We first saw mention of it back in mid-May when they announced the Rovio Stars program. You see, Tiny Thief is coming by way of Rovio Stars but is has actually been developed by 5Ants. This game release marks the second under the Rovio Stars program. But with that in mind, Tiny Thief is the only Rovio Stars release available for Android.
The GALAXY S 4 has launched with select carriers and is currently available for pre-order with others. While some are already beginning to grab the handset, it looks like Gameloft is making sure there will be plenty of games to play. Simply put, Gameloft has recently announced a list of GALAXY S 4 optimized game titles.
If you are in the UK and looking forward to getting your hands on the Xperia Z, it looks like Sony has inched things one step closer to a release. We are seeing some pricing along with some pre-order availability. Xperia Z details have recently appeared with Sony as well as with several carriers and retailers to include Phones4u, Carphone Warehouse, Three and O2.
