Recent Call Log Paid

Here it is, my most recent addition to the Amazon Appstore. My goal is to get it into the Free App of the Day promotion, or as the cool kids call it FAD! Hopefully I don't get screwed like these folks... I've got two things going for me that these guys don't, I'm not paying monthly for servers and I'm not as good a developer as they are. What does this do for me? Well, I won't be bogged down by server issues and I don't have any better chance to promote my app than this. The popularity of the Amazon Appstore is growing and I'd like to hop on the explosion! Please Amazon, help me out!

I am utterly addicted to this shizznit. I haven't won a dime yet, but the games alone are addicting. All of them are completely free to play and give you many opportunities to win money. There is a payout every thirty days based on the number of games total that you have played during that time. You earn this whether you are winning the games or not. The payouts for this include, 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100. To reach the 100 dollars it seems that you have to play 24/7 the whole month, but it is hard to say since I have only been on the site for a few days and barely a quarter of the way to 5. There is an option for $4 monthly fee which doubles your jackpots, that's neat and all but I like winning for free! There is also a section labeled cash competitions that directs you to the website. Another one that I started just before trying out gamesville. Worldwinners looks fun, but requires you to pay money before you can win any money, and you have a chance of losing money. On that site you pay to play a game, if you beat your opponent you win an amount greater than you paid... I don't like my chances with that method, so I stick to gamesville. So far, I have found my favorite game to be Quick-Draw Poker. It seems to be the quickest way to get points, plus you have a chance to win a collecting jackpot. The pot raises by a buck every couple games. If you catch yourself on the site, you may just find jonbze raking in the cash! Check it out.

Home Screen Call Logs

Haven't touched them in a while, but hopefully that hasn't stopped you from being all over my apps... Just put in an update for my call log widget, opened up the choice in settings to allow for dialing instead of restricting to direct calling . Not sure if people were getting frustrated with accidentally calling people from the home screen but I was. My damn T-Mobile mytouch is so slow and crappy that the freezing was causing me to call family a little more than I wanted to... Anyway, hope you are still enjoying the app and I shall continue to improve upon it. As always, thanks for the support!

Finally, do they get it?

Pure Breeze Launcher

Check out "Pure Breeze Launcher"

Wow, I think Samsung is the first company to go the way I believe all Android cell phone makers should go. They made a skin and put it on the market. I have had many different blogs and each time I have typed on and on about how the companies should start selling skins on the market and leave their phones pure untouched vanilla stock Android. Now, it's not the best and just like the skins they force on their phones, people are not going to like the skin, but it is a start and people can choose not to buy it. Most Android cell phone companies create skins for their phones. Most buyers seem to complain about them (minus HTC users). Motorolla has probably gotten the most critizism for their damn blur, I had the original Cliq (complete headache). Thank god Google bought them, maybe their skin will only be a small "blur" in the early stages of Android. Something we all can forget. Now that Samsung has posted their "skin" on the market, maybe it will be one less forced skin that we will not have to deal with anymore. Those that want it can give Sammy some extra cash for their burden. I don't care how much the skins suck, I probably won't ever use them. Every time I try one I delete them within a few days. I want more options of phones. Yea, there are many Android phones out there but I want stock and options for those seem to be shrinking. Come on companies, you're paying too much to not realize Android users prefer stock or HTC's sense, everyone else quit it!  

GO Launcher EX

GO Launcher EX

Check out "GO Launcher EX"

Wow, talk about impressive! This home screen replacement app is just simply amazing. I haven't seen any others as EXtensive. Between scrolling twitter and re-sizable widgets, it's everything that Motoblur wanted to be. I'm sure people would be willing to pay good money for this bad boy, but they actually have it free on the market. Go check it out, install it, play with it, do what you will, and enjoy!

My Amazon Entry

I've finally got my first application posted to the Amazon App store. I went with the Recent Call Log first not only because it was the easiest of my apps to fit into Amazon's strict limits but also because it is by far my most popular app. Eventually, I plan on adding the paid version and also getting my two Colors by Numbers application posted. You hear all the complaints of developers with the iphone and amazon app stores, but you don't really feel the pain until you attempt yourself. I'm so used to throwing up an update on any of my applications whenever I want at any time of the night. I am often updating them late at night. Posted the this app to Amazon late on Friday and it probably wasn't touched all weekend. Review probably started Monday and didn't end till today. Yikes... oh, well. I got it up and that's all that matters. Hopefully, I can post all of my apps to Amazon and I will as long as the profit out weighs the 100 bucks a year it costs to be an Amazon developer. Either way, for now I have to options for getting my recent call log. Enjoy!

If you aren't a real young buck, you probably are pretty familiar with this game. It's one of the classics and today it is the Amazon App of the Day. It is pretty much exactly how I remember the game, and this is probably why it is getting some low scores. I haven't looked into why the ratings are so low, but I'm assuming that either young kids that don't understand why this is a game or older folks wishing there were some new features are unhappy with the replica game of old. I didn't play many levels of the game because I myself seem to find this type of game tedious and haven't really had the desire to play. It's too bad. During the braces portion of my life I spent many afternoons in the orthodontist office playing the arcade version of this very game. Having only a SNES at the time, I was excited to get my hands on any game I could play, they were all fun and exciting. Today, it seems the gaming world expects a lot more. I have my own game that seems to be suffering from the same issue. Years ago my game may have peeked many people's interest and kept waiting patrons busy, but today it seems the individuals that download my game scoff and curse my name that they even wasted their time with it. The game may bring in the players that reminisce of older simpler times, but I have a feeling that without a new fresh design on the game it won't attract too many young players to the mix. At least everyone can give it a try for free today!

Not Call Log - Paid

This is not a very extensive application, but it is greatly usefully. After calls it sends the phone either back to what you were working on or to something else you choose to have it send. For example, I have my phone go to the home screen after hanging up. There are many different options depending on whether you made the call or it was an incoming call.  There is also a free version available, but hey a dollar ain't much to support a great developer.

Dragon Fly!

With an App market flooded with games, it's hard to find a game that I typically keep installed for more than a day. Simply put, if it isn't Peggle, Plants Vs Zombies, or an emulator, it just doesn't hold my attention. Being a guy that likes to turn on his Xbox 360 daily, even if it's to play a quick game of fruit Ninja, I consider myself an avid gamer. That being said, I walked through my workplace and happened to chance upon someone playing this game, Dragon Fly.

The concept is simple enough, you are being chased by your mamma, because you have escaped from your nest. Seeing as you are still a baby, you have yet to grasp the concept of flying, so you have to use hills as momentum, swooping down, then flying upward hill after hill. Simple right? Well the creator has thrown in challenges that once completed, will increase the level of your dragon. Some of them are simply reaching a level, while some are a little more challenging such as collecting 100 diamonds.

One of the more interesting aspects of the game is the fact that the levels change every day. So if you find yourself unable to finish a challenge, simply wait until tomorrow, and try again. So if you are unable to collect those 100 diamonds today, tomorrow there may be a level filled with more diamonds.

My final verdict is that this game is definitely worth a try, especially since it is free. While it doesn't have the staying power of Angry Bords, or Plants Vs Zombies. It is most def worth a few plays.

Txt Msg Away Message

This is the Amazon App of the Day today. Neat idea, I wouldn't buy it myself, but since it was free I always give them a try. I probably will never use it and delete it by the end of the week, but I could see myself installing it before a vacation. Turn it on and anyone that tries to bother me while I'm gone would get a big fat auto response of: "Leave me alone, I'm vacaying!" I also understand business peeps who go into meetings and probably can't answer their texts would need an auto response so clients or vicious girlfriends wouldn't get upset with them and drop 'em. Anyway, it's free today, so try it!

App 2 SD Pro

I'm a bit late with this, but the app to the side was recently on Amazon's app of the day. It's a pretty sweet app that lets you quickly move apps from your phones internal memory to any sd card that you have in the phone. The main activity lets you move apps one by one or many at a time. What I feel is the best feature is that the app has a notification system that lets you know if any new application you install is capable of being stored in the sd card. Clicking on the notification sends you straight to the applications option to store it in the card. Enjoy!

Get it together!

Yea, I know. Lately my website has been changing back and forth, doing this and that. I have been trying to make things easier on myself. I also have been testing with blogs and various pages that allow for ads, they sort of keep this hobby up. Most free blogs don't let you have ads on them. That is why I have come full circle to where I first started blogging. Since google owns blogger they are more than willing to put ads on your free blog. Thus I am here and grateful that google is willing to pay people as they sleep. So bare with me and thanks for all the support. I think I have finally found the most appropriate method of blogging and set standard for my website.
