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.

    You kinda forgot to mention that the Olympic TV app does not work in the US. Might be good for people to know that tiny bit of info.

    Olympic TV is PANTS. Only works where they’ve not sold the TV rights. No disrespect, but making an app free for Rwanda is not exactly a major cost is it.
