Minecraft coming to Android devices

 Minecraft on Android - Might look a little something like this...

Game developer Mojang recently revealed that Minecraft, its insanely popular sandbox building game, will be coming to mobile devices running Android and iOS. Mojang’s Diaial Kaplan said that the developer had considered delegating the mobile version of Minecraft to a third-party developer but ultimately decided to keep things in-house.

Despite technically still being in beta, Minecraft was one of the most popular indie games of 2010 selling its millionth copy in early January of this year. Mojang aims to launch Minecraft on Android later this year. [Kotaku]

Twidroyd now back online!

Twidroyd

Although it took a little why to go through the Twitter approval process, we’re glad to let all you Twidroyd users out there know that services have now been restored. The recent suspension put in place by Twitter has been removed, and it is suggested that you grab the latest Twidroyd update if you’re still seeing any issues.

As for why the popular app was suspended? UberMedia founder Bill Gross explained on Quora:

1. Twitter said that in UberTwitter and Twidroyd we use a tweet-elongation service named tmi.me that allows people to write more than 140 characters, and that this service may post private messages on a public website. At their request, we have removed this ability.

2. Twitter said that in UberCurrent we change links that are part of an affiliate program to be our own links. We don’t currently do this, but we removed all changing of links to eliminate any possibility of this.

3. Twitter said that they would like us to change the name UberTwitter, and we have changed the name to UberSocial, effective immediately.

Now, go forth and Tweet on! Download link can be found after break for you all. [Twitter, Quora]

 

Android Central ROM review: ApeX 1.4

ROM review -- ApeX 1.4

For many of us, half the fun of having an Android phone is running a customized version of the OS on our phones.  OK, more than half.  Custom ROMs can offer a very different experience from what the manufacturer intended, and often times it’s like having a new phone to play with.  This week, Android Central forums moderator terpitude71 is going to have a look at the ApeX 1.4 ROM as running on his Droid X.  Kick back, and head past the break to have a read. Thanks Brad!

 

ROM Review: ApeX 1.4 for Droid X and Droid 2

ApeX has even more features besides what was mentioned above. Check it out in the ApeX thread right here in the Android Central forums. ApeX stands out as one of the best custom ROMs available for the Droid X and Droid 2. Whether you are a previous ApeX user, or are new to custom ROMs, I highly recommend giving ApeX 1.4 a whirl. You can download the ROM from the above mentioned thread. Installing is super easy. Just toss the .zip file on your SD card and flash with Rom Manager (you must have Koush’s Droid X/2 Bootstrapper and Clockwork recovery installed first).
