I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    There’s this new game that I’ve been playing that’s actually quite fun and addicting. It’s quite similar to that old Ski game back on Windows PC, but brought with a much cuter look. The play is very fun, and the animations are quite smooth. The game is called Downhill Penguin (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.axs.downhillpenguin). Try it out and hopefully you’ll enjoy the game as much as I do

      Sean, you should just tell people the penguin game is actually yours and you’re just trying to promote it.

    Moto Voice – Say “Find your phone” for your phone to make it ring so you can track it down.

    Seriously? If you’re within shouting distance of your phone, I’d think you’d be able to find it. I can imagine people walking around their houses SCREAMING “FIND YOUR PHONE. FIND. YOUR. PHONE. Dammit…”
