Denon's Music Maniac series of headphones has added two new IEMs and an app to its range. The AH-C120 and AH-C50 earphones expand the IEM quota, which was previously just the AH-C250 model holding its own against a bunch of over-ear headphones. The AH-C120s feature 11.5mm drivers tuned to a flat EQ (more on that in a minute...), while the AH-C50s pack 9mm drivers tuned to a flat EQ. Both sport a tangle-free cable with integrated mic, an adapter for Sony smartphones and multiple tips. Launched alongside the earphones is the Denon Audio app for iOS and Android. One for the audiophiles, it allows the creation and sharing of custom EQ curves with an integrated 1000-band equaliser and a range of EQ presets. So that's where the flat EQ comes in. The app is available now and the IEMs wi

0.15 percent of mobile/tablet gamers contribute 50 percent of all in-game revenue with in-app purchases, states a report by Swrve. In-app purchases have been a hot topic in the gaming world, with some camps saying free apps with top ups in-game such as Candy Crush Saga and Theme Park are poor form, while others happily pay their way to more candy, coins or gold, depending on their needs. Swrve also found that the average time people make their first purchase is just under 24 hours and if a second purchase is made, it's usually within the next 1 hour and 40 minutes. This is probably due to the 'grinding' mechanism put into free games: you could grind through and slowly get what you want but a quick purchase will sort that out for you quickly and conveniently.

The popular table-top wargaming world of Warhammer will make its Android debut this March with the Warhammer 40k Storm of Vengeance game. The Games Workshop franchise has had a couple of iOS outings (including the excellent dungeon crawler Warhammer Quest) but the new Plants vs Zombies-style Storm of Vengeance will be released on both platforms, as well as PC. Set in the 40k universe and based on the Purging of Kadillus book by Gav Thorpe, the five-lane battlefield pitches Space Marine Dark Angels against Orks across a 50 mission single player campaign. Excitingly, the multiplayer mode is cross-platform, so PC gamers and iOS players can feel the wrath of Android warriors. The £2.99 game is released by Eutechnyx 27 March, with a 69p Imperial Guard add-on available on launch day.
Android Honeycomb already looks pretty darn good on a tablet, but it can now look so much better. There are new downloadable HD widgets designed for Android and purchasable from the Marketplace that will make your desktop look so much better than it did before - given that you own a Honeycomb tablet. The HD widgets and wallpapers are crisp, clear and as stated, in high definition and judging by the above picture, looks fantastic. In fact, you may even remember it from the Vortex Galaxy Live wallpaper blog we did a while back. Check out more about them after the break. The screenshot above shows another example of the many options you can choose from which ranges in colour, size, background, clock type and many more customizable features for your personal preference. There are even
A sneaky Android malware has recently been caught by a team from Trend Mirco, which discovered that the malware - called ANDROIDOS_NICKISPY.C. - was gallivanting around under the guise of a Google++ app. Now you may have already noticed something off about the mask - Google's social network is actually Google+, not ++, but still it can be easily overlooked and therefor can find its way onto your Android smartphone. Find out what the malware does to your device after the break. The naughty malware automatically loads after you've downloaded and booted up your phone. It is then capable of automatically making and receive phone calls. It also runs several services that can monitor your emails, phone calls, locate your current location and can also steal your email and and other con

Netflix has yet again found its way onto another Android tablet - the Teclast T760 - and is seen to be working well and dandy thanks to Mp4Nation forum mod, Rowwor. The movie renting app has now been seen to work on the the NOVO8 by fellow forum mod D2K, and on the Nationite MIDnite again by Rowwor. Netflix was able to run on the T760 on its stock firmware, and performs all in all impressively according to Rowwor. Check out the thread complete with images of Netflix running on the T760 here.
Swype is so far the leading keyboard software on the Android platform, with many others trying to take the crown but with Skype remaining with the crown still on its head. Well TouchPal has stepped up to the plate and is having a go at gaining your vote as the best Android keyboard. Find out what it has to offer after the break. The company behind TouchPal announced their return on their Twitter page, as well as a promo video showing off the functionality of their latest development: the TouchPal keyboard. As you would imagine, its similar to Swype - it uses a similar trace input method, as well as a similar predictive text input to SwiftKey, and a keyboard-less interface that looks something like what we use to scribble with stylus' on. In other words, it looks pretty darn good.
Mp4Nation mod Dragon2Knight has had his fair share of anguish with getting Netflix up and running on a China tablet. He's finally slayed the problem and has managed to get the movie-renting app working on the Ainol NOVO8! The NOVO8 he was using had the original ROM, version 110627. All he had to do was download Netflix from the marketplace - install - run - presto: Netflix on the NOVO8. Give it a go for yourself if you're a NOVO8 owner.
