Hands on Madden NFL 11 for Android

EA Mobile’s Madden NFL 11 just came to Android in the recent Droid X update and now we are getting our first look at it. This game remains a Verizon exclusive where they are selling it for $9.99, but evidence suggests that EA Mobile will eventually start selling their games in the Android Market.

We already spotted that Need for Speed Shift was headed to the Android Market this year, so we would hope to eventually see Madden NFL 11 unless it remains a Verizon exclusive (which really wouldn’t surprise us).

For an idea of what you might be able to purchase and play one day, check out the hands on video from Kellen of Droid Life. The graphics don’t look that mind-blowing, but it’s the best looking football game I’ve seen on Android and I’m excited to one day play Madden on my phone.

Androidandme is conducting a poll on how much are people willing to spend for a premium Android game. So far 41.88% (majority) of  the voters say that they are willing to spend up to $5 – $10 on a premium Android game.  Madden happens to be at the top end of the range. We’ll just have to wait and watch what the verdict is on the final price  once it hits the Android Market.

Apple Removes Wi-Fi Finding Apps From App Store

Apple removed several Wi-Fi apps commonly referred to as stumblers, or apps that seek out available Wi-Fi networks near your location. According to a story on Cult of Mac, apps removed by Apple include WiFi-Where, WiFiFoFum, and yFy Network Finder.

What is the reasoning behind Apple’s latest move to remove Wi-Fi finding apps?  Well no explanation was provided whatsoever.  People who purchased Wi-Fi finding apps found that iTunes forcefully removed those apps from their iPhones/iPod Touches without their knowledge.  Will customers get a refund for those paid apps?  Nobody knows.   This kind of bonehead move by Apple will only create backlash amongst its followers and competition should capitalize on this latest fiasco.

Facial Recognition App Coming Soon

recognizrI’m sure we all have thought of this before. How cool would it be to have something like facial recognition on our mobile phones?  Think again would you really want something like facial recognition? But then again its not exactly like what you think this app is. The Astonishing Tribe is working on developing a new application for mobile devices, which would allow users to take a picture of someone and see who that person is. You can’t just walk around waving your mobile device at people taking their pictures and see who they are. I’m sure you would have to sign up and allow Facial Recognition application to allow others to see who you are. The person who you take a snap shot of has to be in the database. If you are on the database of Recognizr application then it will show which social networking groups the person is connected to. This would raise a lot of privacy issues but remember you have to be in the database for your face to be recognized by this application, Recognizr. App users can also associate traditional address book details with their profile like their full name, address, phone number and email, and all of this data can be accessed just by aiming your mobile phone at someone’s face. Right now they only have a prototype at the moment but it wont be too long before you’ll see it on the android market place.

What you guys think?
