Wow, I guess not having parenthesis *is* a notable omission, but still... heck, in my day, a calculator had four functions and 8 LED (not LCD) digits, and the most advanced thing you could do with it was turn it upside down and giggle at "b00b135".

For the dev's sake, I hope it's true that "there's no such thing as bad publicity".

Not many Amazon apps are "worth" being free... I've used this calculator for a year now and still like it better than others.

I did download yesterday's Mahjong Artifacts, but can't read any of the text, or instructions (and I have a 5" screen!)... I guess you need a 10" tablet to figure it out.

Yes, I'm not one to look the gifthorse in the mouth, but I think it's reasonable to expect a modicum of quality given how Amazon pushes their give away as a reason to use their store.

I think just as big of a problem as bad apps is that many devs don't update their apps in the Amazon store. The Android Market version gets updates and they just leave the old version to rot on the Amazon market. I must easily have 10-15 apps like that.

I'm having nothing but trouble with the Appstore app, blowing through an inordinate amount of battery for no reason.

This was taken after I killed the app in settings, and charged it for a few. Needless to say, I am seriously considering deleting it altogether. My hope is to be able to install the occasional giveaway that interests me via sideloading, until they fix it. Do I have any alternatives to using their appstore proper?

Since I'm rooted, I would delete it using Titanium, and then restore it when there's actually a good app to grab. That hasn't happened in a while...

Alternatively, I wonder if you can add the App o'Day to your Amazon account from the website? Once you've "purchased" it, it'll be available to whatever phone you're using, so maybe that's the workaround.

My phone doesn't report Amazon using battery, FWIW (LG Optimus T).

You absolutely can add it via the website. I do it almost daily as a way of "holding" rights to an app that I may later find useful. Some I know I'll never use, so I skip doing this on those days.

Yeah, the battery tracking comes with ICS, so that's how I know. I've been using the website to "purchase" them (to avoid using the app), so I'll check and see if I can download directly from it.

I go and check the website for the free one and 'purchase' it if I want it (and then usually download to the app once I am home on WiFi. The only thing is, I believe any app purchased through Amazon (whether it was the daily free or you actually bought it) needs to have Amazon Appstore installed on the device so that the app will run. I know this to be the case for WeatherBug, a few times I uninstalled (or maybe logged out of) Amazon Appstore and WeatherBug gave me a message saying it couldn't verify me, reinstalled Appstore and then all was good. Not sure if permanent freebies do this as well.

You are correct in that it has to be on my device. I'm, hoping to just avoid opening it. If I can't, then I'll likely just write off the few apps from it that I use.

I had seen the amazon appstore using high CPU frequently last week. I cleared data and cache for that app and it seems to have been a lot better since.

Also, what's up with amazon appstore notifications? The most recent version allows you to turn off notifications, but I'm still getting them. Did it only turn off notifications of updates, not notifications of new apps? Very confused.

Poorly coded app for sure.

Plus, in order to run an app you get from amazon appstore, you are required to keep the appstore app on the phone.

As an update, I thought I'd post how I'm currently dealing with it. I went back and installed (which was an issue in itself) Watchdog Task Manager that Amazon gave away last year. In trying to install Watchdog, the app seemed to refuse to install whenever I selected that option, instead returning to the list of 280-something apps. Before going up bed, I opened their Appstore again and turned off the screen. When I woke up, it was ready to install; I have no idea how long it took to get to that point. Back to the original point though, I set it up this morning (after having already force stopping the Appstore after installing Watchdog), and once Watchdog got the numbers it was indicating that the Appstore was using 28% of the CPU. Needless to say, I was ninja quick to blacklist that sucker.

As an aside, I know that this would be easier to manage if I were rooted which would enable me to freeze it, but after having exchanged phones on each model I've owned (including this one), I'm not excited at the prospect of unrooting in order to be able to exchange my device for another.

A bit off topic, but why bother unrooting? If you're giving it to another person, you're giving them a better device (though I'd probably go and configure Superuser to "deny all" and uninstall anything that could get the recipient in trouble). If you're returning it to the store, they're going to do a complete wipe, so surely they don't care if you're running Angry Birds or Titanium Backup?

I don't care about selling/ giving away handsets that are rooted, I just worry about taking it back. After having dealt with Asurion for one of those, I worried a lot about getting tapped for the cost of the device. Maybe it's a scare tactic on their part, but I'd rather be safe (watchdog) than sorry.

The last phone I sold the buyer actually told me that he was searching specifically for a Droid that was already rooted and mine was the only one which is why I sold it so fast when there were like a dozen for sale on CL. I mean, to the average person who doesn't have the desire to root themselves they would be the ones paying someone else to root it for them so why not buy the one already rooted? Saves them time, effort and money.

You guys and your fancy new toys. I always use my phones until they're worn to a nub, and/or so obsolete that nobody would want it. Somewhere, I think I've still got an analog headset that's being held together with electrical tape. It looks like it's got a black headband, so my kids called it Dad's Ninja Phone.

Leaving aside the way fortune has smiled on the rest of us how do you like the app? Is it worth it? Audubon has several more guide apps (plants, mammals, etc) that might be fun for this summer's camping season.

I got it and I like it. If you're interested in birding, it would seem to be essential. I would never have paid the $10 for it, but for free, it's a nice app. It gives you lots of ways to search for birds, and gives not only a description and pictures, but calls for most birds. There are a few with no recorded calls, like the ivory-billed woodpecker which has probably been extinct for years, but most have a range of recorded songs/calls.

It has to be said... on a low-end phone like mine, that Audubon app is for the birds.

Yes I have the HTC Incredible Phone. When I run Audubon, I get the "Low Memory" warning even though the App is loaded on the SD card. Seems Audubon uses quite a bit of internal phone memory and cache.

Well, guess I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one with the problem of the Amazon Appstore eating battery for no reason. Currently sitting at the top of my battery use list at 16%, more than WiFi and Phone Idle. And it is constantly doing something, because when I look at the details, the CPU total time is slowly going up, along with the data sent and received. So far today, it has sent 570.31 KB and received 9.07 MB. And I haven't opened the app at all. I REALLY want to know what, exactly, it is sending out and getting back on its own. I really want to uninstall it, but don't want to make the apps I've gotten thru it useless, so kind of stuck. Oh, and strangely, I have a Nook Tablet that is rooted and I have Amazon Appstore installed on it, and I don't seem to have this problem on there at all.

You could always try clearing the appstore's data and cache. It'll log you out and clear any Alps that you've downloaded but have yet to install. Their more recent updates resolved it for me, but I found that by logging out it reduced its need to run in the background (and made waiting for the fix easier). Just know that some apps will require you to be logged in, though in my case it wasn't all of them.

I was unable to clear the Appetite data. When I try, the process crashes. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the Appetite, seems to be behaving fine now. But I'll be keeping my eyes on it!

Dang, didn't even notice that, stupid autocorrect! I meant Appstore, although I wish I could uninstalled or at least delete data from my appetite, lol!

FAOTD (6/12) is Ninja Chicken. How can you possibly go wrong with that?

Hmm, this is interesting. After I grabbed the Ninja Chicken app, I got this note from Amazon:
Quote:
Thank you for purchasing from Amazon.com.

Your recent order [number] entitles you to a promotional credit which we have added to your account. This credit can be applied to your next qualifying purchase.

Additional information on this offer can be found here http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?&docId=1000807361

As a purchaser of a select free app for Android from the Amazon Appstore, you have earned a $1 credit valid towards Amazon MP3 albums or single songs at Amazon.com MP3: Shop 20 million songs and play your music on your Kindle Fire, Android device, PC, Mac, or iPad with Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player. .
Is this just based on my own purchasing history, or is every Ninja Chicken d/l generating a $1 mp3 credit?

Today's free app is Voltage. Pieces drop down from the top and you have to complete a circuit.

If you're rooted, Gemini app manager is a good way to keep the amazon appstore in check. It can turn off the appstore's autorun ability so it won't run unless you want it to.

Ugh, today's app is something called Daisy's Crazy Day. "Daisy's got a hot date with Brad tonight, and she needs to get ready!" Includes Competitive Shopping at the Mall. Reviews are about 5-to-1 awful (as in, 1 star). My favorite: "What kind of HORRIBLE game would promote a young girl to lose weight to go out on a date? I'm surprised it doesn't have an option for her to barf a few times to fit into some jeans."

Does anybody know how to play cricket?



The tension, the fun, the high voltage drama; it's all here in World Cricket Championship - Pro. This 3D-style cricket game takes you into the arena of international cricket, offering two game modes for twice the intensity.
Up to bat

In Quick Play, choose your own team and your opponent. Batsmen are pre-chosen, but you select your bowlers from the players available. By winning the toss you have the option to bat or ball first. You can play either a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 over match. If you are a first-time player, try Quick Play mode a few times before you move on to Tournament mode.
In Tournament mode, two groups play simultaneously, though you only confront the team from the other group at the quarter-final level. Choose your own side and play against the specified team. As in Quick Play, batsmen are specified, but you can select your bowlers. Win at least four games out of six to avoid elimination and enter the quarter-finals. Elimination automatically ends the tournament. Quarter-finals and semi-finals are knock-out rounds. Win your quarter-final to enter the semi-final round, then progress toward the championship match.
