Supports each platform’s respective achievement/leaderboard features (Google Play Games, Game Center, Game Circle).

Drop supplies to passing ships; catch as many packages as you can!

Features:
-Google Play Games Achievements and Leaderboards (Game Center and GameCircle support for iOS/Kindle).
-Immersive Mode support for devices with on-screen buttons running Android KitKat or higher.

Multiple Game Modes:
Choose between 25 / 50 / 100 drops, or go for a record streak with Infinite Mode.

Strategy:
The goal of Supply Drop is to drop packages onto passing ships. Touch anywhere on the screen to drop a package, it will reload a short time after on its own.

You want the package to land in the caged/fenced area on the back of the ship. If the package hits the other packages the ship is carrying, it will explode and you will not receive a point and your streak will reset; this will also happen if your package lands in the water.

In the 25 / 50 / 100 Game Modes, you have those amounts of packages to drop, as well as those amounts of boats to drop them on to. So, if you don’t attempt to drop a package on every boat you will have extra packages left over when the round ends. In short…try to drop a package on every boat!

In the Infinite Game Mode, if you let a boat pass by without attempting to drop a package onto it, or if you miss your drop, you lose one of your “allowed misses”. The next miss after all “allowed misses” are exhausted will end the round. Go for the highest streak!

If you have any issues with the game, or think something isn’t working properly, please contact me at brandon@cultureoftech.com and I will look into it as soon as possible.

Motorola offers more wood backs for the Moto X on MotoMaker, lowers price

Motorola went a new direction late last year with the release of their latest flagship, the Moto X. They offered a service, called MotoMaker, that would allow you to customize the phone with a variety of color options for the back plate, buttons, and either a white or black front. The phone was then built, just for you, and shipped out to your home.

One of the most exciting announcements was that Motorola would offer the option of wooden backs, something that has, for the most part, never been seen from a mobile phone manufacturer. Unfortunately, the wood options were not available at launch.

How to update your Android Nexus device without waiting for the OTA update

Nexus devices carry one big advantage over most all of the other Android devices; updates to the latest Android version are available for them first (most of the time).

However, as many Android users know, Google uses a staged rollout system for both their app updates as well as their system updates. This means that not all users get the update at the same time. Google says this allows them to make sure that the update is working how it should before they deploy it to everyone. For some of us, we just want the update as soon as we can get it.

That’s where Nexus Factory Images come in. These are the full Android package for Nexus devices, and they are available to download well before most people get the over-the-air (OTA) update pushed to them. Even better, it is incredibly easy to use these images to update your device on your own!
