Android App Spotlight: Jetpack Joyride

Jetpack Joyride
Jetpack Joyride is another addictive play-on-the-go game on Android (and iOS) brought to you by the creators of the popular game, Fruit Ninja. Yes, Halfbrick has done it again.

In Jetpack Joyride you will be flying the coolest jetpacks ever with a game's protagonist, Barry Steakfries in a fun-filled adventure. The game is basically about you controlling Barry as he breaks out of a secret laboratory and steals a jetpack in which he rides continuously whilst dodging various traps. You can collect coins and complete missions to earn cash and buy new gear in The Stash. There is a variety of items for purchase from jetpacks, outfits and usable items. There are also various vehicles in the game to give you more speed and power.

It is quite a fun and addictive game and perfect for those moments when you need a quick game whilst waiting for the bus (for example). It's free to download from the Play Store. Give it a go!

Chrome Theme: Snow Miku

I decided to create another Hatsune Miku theme and here it is! The image wallpaper was from Mikubook's Mikutery competition (credits to them) for the Winter 2012 celebration at the start of the year. Here is the same image used in the competition in a Google Chrome theme! It fits all displays under 1920x1080 resolution. Enjoy!

Google Drive files can now be shared via Google+

Users can now share files from their Google Drive storage account on their Google+ social networking profile, a capability that could be particularly relevant for workplace collaboration.

Users can share links to any file stored in Drive, including text documents, spreadsheets, slide presentations, forms and video clips.

Drive files can be shared on Google+ in different ways. Users can copy the URL of the Drive file and paste it into the share box in Google+. Another option is to share it on Google+ using the Drive share feature, which now includes Google+ as a destination option.

When shared on Google+, each file carries with it the access settings their owner gave it on Drive. Users can define which Google+ contacts they want to share a file with.
