To be fair on this game, you download a 5MB client and agree to the terms before it downloads the rest of the game. Apparently the client checks if your phone can actually handle the game (free space, specs, etc) and will warn you if you are about to waste your money.

The game has various settings as well so if you have a slower phone you can reduce the resolution to speed it up, it's all done pretty well from the few minutes I have spent tinkering with it.

The size is apparently due to the fact this is a high res port/reworking of a PSP game so is stuffed with video and higher bitrate audio files.

Kongregate is an online games service, with some games that are actually quite good.

Anyone had any joy with Snes emulation on Android? I downloaded the free snes9x and it sometimes hard resets my phone.

Haven't touched it on Android since 1.6 as the screen was not good enough for controlling it, would use it more if they allowed me to configure the keyboard on my phone instead.

Google docs has been released. Not had a chance to try it but should be worth a gander

If you're patient enough to get used to it then the Swype Keyboard is an awesome addition to Android :lol:

Also Extended controls, lets you create custom settings bars to enable/disable wi-fi, bluetooth, GPS etc all at the touch of a button on your home screen!

Emulator ROMS is probably one of my fav apps, offers an impressive library of GBS, NES, SNES and PSX emulators and games :thumbsup:

swype bugged on me so it simply stopped working even if I reinstalling. no major loss as I had a hardware keyboard on my phone. Great concept though.

Using a custom ROM on mine now, it's frightening how much faster my phone is compared to the stock Samsung 2.3.3 ROM. ^_^

I've always been a fan of the custom Roms for Android since the G1, one of my main reasons for using it all the time as there's such an active community producing all sorts of awesomeness. The one I'm running at the moment on my orange San Francisco has doubled my battery life, which is nice!

I've been running the Swedish Spring Rls5 (based on android 2.2 froyo) and it's great for me, got a smart cpu scaler too which rops the cpu speed when the phone is sleeping which is lovely for battery life

I am tempted to flash the cyanogen mod though, as it gets lots of praise, and runs gingerbread
