If you haven't seen the motion picture 'The Adventures Of TinTin' then you missed out on a treat. Combining the directing wizardry of Steven Spielberg with the producing and special effects genius of Peter Jackson of 'Lord of the Rings' fame it really was a tour de force of computer animation bliss. So you can imagine how excited I was to find out about the new Android version of the video game based on the movie. Now I've tried 'movie titles' before and to be honest, they are typically pale comparisons of the movie with half-hearted attempts at making a game. Not so with 'TinTin'. The developers really pulled out all the stops and reportedly Steven Spielberg himself was intimately involved with helping to design key elements of the game. The game looks...and plays like a movie. Want proof? Take a look at this video trailer for the game...
Play the official movie game of The Adventures of Tintin
Take on the role of Tintin, Snowy, Haddock, and Sir Francis Haddock
Varied gameplay: Sneak past guards, engage in a swordfight, pilot a plane, solve puzzles, and more
Accessible controls: Interact, explore, and fight with a swipe of a finger or a tilt of your device
Traverse the globe, from Marlinspike Mansion to treacherous deserts and the Karaboudjan ship
So how do you play? You play either TinTin, Snowy, Haddock or Sir Francis Haddock and play what is in essence a third person adventure game with various missions and goals. You can run, jump, sneak, engage in swordfights, pilot a plane and solve puzzles to make your way through the different levels. Cool cut scenes move the story along and the graphics are some of the best of any 'movie' game I've seen. They do a great job of conveying the mood and ambiance of all the exotic locations that the game takes place in. All controls are made 'swipe' and 'touch' friendly and you'll really feel like you're 'in' the movie as you explore such great set pieces as the Karaboudjan Pirate Ship, Marlinspike Mansion and giant expansive deserts. Definitely worth the $4.99 download if you're a fan of the movie or just looking for a really cool 'cinematic' gaming experience.

It really depends on what kind of document you're using. There's a number of different programs you can use. Some do have the ability to open and edit MS Word documents as well as others. Take a look at 'Documents To Go' and 'QuickOffice Pro HD'. Those are two of the more popular ones.

The Kindle Fire has lots of amazing high-tech games and apps that are available made by big name developers that sometimes spend millions of dollars and thousands of man hours to develop their creations. However, sometimes the coolest apps are the creation of a small outfit or even single person that has a really novel idea. 'iSpy Cameras' is one of these apps. What is it? Well 'iSpy Cameras' let's you connect to and view as well as take control of literally thousands of digital cameras around nation and around the world to let you 'spy' on life going on. Now this might sound a bit mundane and perhaps voyeuristic at first. But trust me...it's actually a really cool experience and it's highly addicting.
This shows the app on the iPhone but the Kindle Fire app is virtually identical
iSpy Cameras allows you to view and control thousands of public video cameras from around the world in real-time from your Android device over WiFi, 3G, and EDGE.
Swipe back and forth between pages of camera thumbnails that are updating in real-time.
Tap a thumbnail to zoom in. Double-tap or press Back to zoom out.
If the camera supports it, tap the Control button to control it. (You may have to wait in line for your turn.)
Swipe to move the camera, pinch to zoom in and out. (Zoom may not be supported by some cameras.)
Choose from a number of camera presets, if available.
Save cameras as your favorites.
Save snapshots to your Gallery.
With 'iSpy Cameras' uses 'public' cameras. It's a little unclear if these are government run or if they are a combination of personal devices that have voluntarily been tied into the network but in the end it really doesn't matter. The reason this app is so fascinating is that it let's you flip through so many different unique views that something is bound to catch your eye. You can watch lions roaming in a zoo enclosure, see cruise ships pulling into and out of port, watch storm clouds gather over German mountains or see famous monuments from most of the more gorgeous cities of the world.
On top of just being able to view a nearly limitless amount of cameras that let you 'spy' on different cultures, animals, people, architecture, etc. Many of the cameras actually let you control them and on-screen controls pop up when appropriate letting you pan, zoom and move up and down. You can also snap pictures of what you're watching and save them to a gallery. Of course the app let's you rate cameras as well as save your favorites. Is it a bit voyeuristic and maybe intrusive to be watching people from thousands of miles away...many without knowing it? Sure it is. But just like reality tv keeps you glued to the television, 'iSpy Cameras' will keep you glued to your Kindle Fire. There's new cameras being added all the time and if you want you can even recommend where one should be placed to the developer. At only 99 cents, this is a really cool app to spend some time with. Who knows, maybe some of the sites and views you see will inspire you to go visit them for real.

A couple of noteworthy news events today include a new round of rumors touched off by a news article in Digitimes.com that Quanta, the Taiwan based tablet and computer manufacturer has been contracted by Amazon to manufacture the next generation of the Kindle Fire and that production has already started with a release date set for a Google event to be held on July 31st. Details are still a bit sketchy and of course none of this has been confirmed by Amazon Corporate but apparently the new Fire will feature an improved resolution 1280 x 800 display, built-in front camera and physical volume controls.
CNET is also stating that they have received similar information from a 'good source' so there may be something to these rumors. Also mentioned by some is the possibility that the new Kindle Fire would come in at the same $199 price point with the older model being dropped to $149 but continuing to be available. This would mimic the strategy that Apple took of keeping their iPad 2 available at a lower price point when replaced with the 'New iPad' in March.
Fans of the popular video site 'Hulu' have something to be happy about this week. A new version of their 'Hulu Plus' app that has been updated to include improved support for 7 inch tablets like the Kindle Fire has been released. Icons and layout have all been tweaked to maximize the Kindle Fire's screen real estate and it makes for an all around better video viewing experience. There's a bunch of other improvements as well including the ability to sign up for free 1-week trials inside the app and a number of bug fixes and optimizations. Hulu+ of course gives you access to the full seasons episodes of such popular series as Modern Family, The Office, Family Guy plus such classics as Lost and Battlestar Galactica and many more all for a low $7.99 monthly fee. You can grab it at the link below.

It's been a busy week as far as rumors go in the world of Amazon and their Kindle Fire tablet. We started out several days ago hearing about leaked plans for Amazon's App Store to be made available in Europe. This followed with many in the tech blogosphere predicting that this could be a precursor to releasing their Kindle Fire tablet officially in Europe too. Interestingly, one of the most popular questions we see in the forums has to do with those who have purchased Kindle Fires and either live in europe full time and are trying to figure out a way to access Amazon's App Store or those that puchase them in the U.S. and simply want to use them during vacations when abroad and have access to their online accounts. If this latest rumor holds true we might not have to worry about these issues anymore.
Another bit of tech rumor that made the rounds later in the week...in fact yesterday and today has to do with a story in Digitimes.com...a tech journal mainstay in the mobile world. Apparently a reporter named Max Wang has gotten inside info from supply chain people that Amazon is about to release a 10 inch version of their Kindle Fire...whether it retains the same name or not we don't know at this point. The company would then release a slightly cheaper version of the current Kindle Fire 7 inch tablet for a reported reduced price of only $149. The new 10 inch tablet is reported to have a screen resolution of 1280 x 800, matching most standard 10 inch Android tablets with the 7 inch variant sticking with 1024 x 600.
This latest rumor also mentions the opening of the Europe market as part of Amazon's strategy to keep the momentum going with its in-house tablet/reader line. Apparently, some reports of sales figures show that after a blowout 4th quarter at the end of 2011 with estimates of 4-6 million Kindle Fires sold, sales in the U.S. trickled down to about 700,000 units in the first quarter. With Microsoft's impending release of their own tablet...and Apple's success with their iPad, the company is determined to make sure they stay a force in the tablet game. It's all just rumors now folks but it should be an exciting few months ahead as we start to see some of these come to fruition.

If you haven't heard of Instapaper then you've probably been spending way too much time reading webpages that haven't been optimized for your reading pleasure. Instapaper has been one of the most popular apps on the iOS platform for a while and has just been ported over to Android and the Kindle Fire. It's a really useful program that strips away all the extra junk from a webpage and optimizes it for your tablet's screen. What you get is distraction-free reading formatted perfectly and letting you read all your favorite websites OFFLINE when it's convenient for you. Still not quite getting it? Take a look at the video below and let The Verge explain what it's all about and why you'll look at reading websites the same again.
Saves most web pages as text only, stripping away the full-sized layout to optimize for tablet and phone screens
Distraction-free reading environment gets out of your way so you can focus on the content
Everything you download is then available **OFFLINE**, so you can read whenever you want, even on airplanes, subways, or Wi-Fi-only devices away from internet connections

Dark mode and brightness control for night reading
With Instapaper you can adjust fonts, text sizes, line spacing and margins just the way you like them.

Remember that scene that opened the Spielberg classic, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, where Indiana Jones was chased out of a cave running for his life as darts, collapsing floors and a gigantic boulder tried to kill him? Well Temple Run is like one gigantic chase scene where you're Indiana and obstacle after obstacle tries to run you down or hamper your path. A long time favorite on the iPad, 'Temple Run' throws everything but the kitchen sink at your hero. Here's a little video of gameplay action as well as a review in case you're unfamiliar...
Simple swipe-and-tilt controls that are easy to use and just feel right
Level up your character and use crazy power-ups
Original 3D running mechanic combining turning, jumping, sliding, and tilting--the first of its kind!
Play as 7 different characters
Incredibly fun; endless gameplay
Now personally I love this game. Every time I fire it up I feel like I'm back in some epic adventure movie, whether Romancing the Stone, the Mummy, good old Indiana or National Treasure. Now just like 'Raiders' you've stolen a gold statue from the temple and are making a run for it. You choose from any one of 7 different characters to play as you make your getaway. From evil monkeys nipping at your heels to rocks falling or the floor falling from beneath you...you jump, run, slide, tilt and run your way through level after level in this never ending chase scene that quickly becomes incredibly addicting. The iOS version of 'Temple Run' has won so many awards, it's not even worth listing them at this point but if you're looking for an easy to learn, but still challenging and graphically cool game then you can't go wrong with 'Temple Run' on your Kindle Fire. It's free to play but like a lot of games these days you can purchase in-app content to gain powers, awards and make the game even more interesting. Grab it in the Amazon App Store or click the link below to go directly.

I love it when I stumble across a game or app that stands out as a bit different or unusual. With all the me-too cookie cutter games out there sometimes it seems like they all just blend together. So I was a bit taken aback when I first played 'Gunman Clive', a really unique looking game by the artist Bertil Horberg. Just one look at the hand-drawn artwork in this classic side-scrolling game will make you want to give it a try. Just one play and it'll quickly be on your shortlist of 'go to' games whenever you have a few minutes to spare. Just take a look at the gameplay footage below and you'll get an idea of what's in store...
In 'Gunman Clive' you play Clive...a cowboy on a mission. You see a group of outlaws have kidnapped Mayor Johnson's daughter and it's up to you to bring law and order to the land and rescue the fair maiden. You navigate Clive using directional arrows on screen. There's 16 different beautifully hand-rendered levels to get through from run of the mill gunmen to uber bosses. The artwork is all done in a really unique sepia-shaded tone that gives the whole thing the feeling of playing an old animated Disney film or something. It's a very cool experience and highly recommended for your Kindle Fire. It's only $1.99 and you can grab it at the link below in the Amazon App Store.

How would you feel if you 'fired up' (pun intended) your Kindle Fire and were greeted by an advertisement instead of your typical bookshelf user interface that you're used to. Well if Amazon executives have their way that's exactly what could be in store for Kindle Fire owners in the near future, at least that what at least one executive has leaked after an apparent presentation he was privy to where Amazon executives were seeking a minimum $600,000 commitment for any Ad campaign involving the hot 7 inch device. According to the source, the ad campaigns would run for 2 months and include inventory from Amazon's 'special offers' products which brings up a few questions about the whole plan.
First on our list of questions would be...would these ads appear on full priced Kindle Fire's that have already been purchased? Would they only be for some future 'ad-sponsored' version of the Fire similar to how the black and white Kindles have 'sponsored screensavers' on some devices in order to offer them for a reduced price. It seems that ad execs had the same kinds of questions and one concern they apparently raised was how consumers that have a full-price Kindle Fire would react if they woke up one morning and saw advertising on their beloved tablets when none had appeared on them before. A reduced-price Kindle Fire option would make sense to offer and seems to have worked well for the eink Kindles. Another thought is that rumors of a new Kindle Fire, either a sequel or one sporting a larger screen is expected to be announced late summer or early fall. Might these ad plans be for this new device? could we see a whole family of Kindle Fires this fall...some ad supported, some full-priced and without ads similar to the eink Kindles? Would you buy an ad-supported Kindle Fire and if so at what price? How much is being ad-free worth to you?

I'm not really familiar with what 'emotobooks' are. I googled them and they look like digital books that have a graphics element that tries to 'highten emotional awareness'. So since I've never actually read/tried one of these...what do you think? Does this graphical element add anything to the story or is it a distraction?

It's a lazy mid-week Wednesday and I had a few extra hours this afternoon to play around with a new game I've recently gotten introduced to. Now typically I'm more of a 'Gameloft', actoin and guns first person guy but I have to tell you, I'm pretty darn impressed by this latest Gamevil made game, Zenonia 4. Zenonia is what is called an 'action RPG' which basically means it combines elements of role playing games like the classic dungeons and dragons and adds in some real time combat and action into the mix. This latest version has full HD graphics and it's a very visually interesting game that can compete with the best of the genre. If you ever dreamed of being wrapped up in an epic Lord of the Rings type quest then you'll love Zenonia. Take a look at the video below to get an idea of the gameplay.
Pretty cool eh? In Zenonia 4 you explore the overworld under the guise of a Slayer, Blader, Ranger or Druid that you outfit with armor, weaponry and other items to prepare yourself for battle. Once out in the action you engage in combat utilizing combo hits, devastating skills and moves gaining experience and annihilating monsters. One cool feature is the option to take part in 2x2 arena battles with other players where team combat introduces a whole new way of fighting. There's tons more options and things to learn including loot drops, mercenaries, the Fairy Sync system and collecting effect boosting titles. Grab it in the Amazon App store at the link below and believe it or not Zenonia 4 is free to play with optional buy-ins later on in the game.

One genre of game we don't hear much about is actually fairly ubiquitous on the Kindle Fire...the 'hidden object' game. Combining the narrative elements of an adventure game with the simplicity of touch enabled puzzles and quizzes, 'Hidden Object' titles provide a more relaxing and thought intensive gaming experience than the typical arcade lights and bells and whistles we're used to with some of the more hyped gaming titles. Many of these games are truly worthwhile and to be honest a lot more fulfilling than simple shoot-em-ups. If you haven't checked out this genre out yet then now's your chance because Amazon is currently holding a sale for some of the most popular 'Hidden Object' titles with many titles at 50% and more off regular price. Here's just some of the titles included in the same:
The Lost City, The Secret Of Grisly Manor, The Mystery Of Crimson Manor, The Treasure Of Mystery Island, Pirate Mysteries, Dream Sleuth, Forgotten Places - Lost Circus, XIII - Lost Identity, Dungeon Of The Damned, Hidden Treasure 2, Little Shop Of Treasures and more! As you can see there's a common thread running through many of these titles...mystery and there's a reason for that. The hidden object format of the game makes it ideal to break up a mystery story and let you act as the sleuth who must travel through rooms, lands or locations and discover evidence that leads you to the villain or murderer at the center of the story. Just to be clear, while these are called 'Hidden Object' games, finding objects is just part of the challenge. All of the titles have different kinds of puzzles and riddles that must be solved in addition to just discovering objects. Many of these games are terrific for adults who are looking for something a little deeper to dive into to pass the time and get your mind off of real life. The sale is only for the next few days so definitely check out the titles at the link below and let us know which are your favorites.
