My Pokédex for Android app was originally developed as a learning project. It was my first Android application and I was able to learn a lot about Android development by creating it. I also received some decent feedback on the application. Most users who emailed liked how simple it was in its design and user experience. This was encouraging. However, the app has now been removed from the Google Play Store and it won’t be coming back. This was a simple case of property ownership. Whether it was the icon or the property as a whole, there’s not much to argue.
Thanks to those who used the app and to those who sent their feedback. I’m not done with mobile development, though I might be sticking to iOS for my next app.
Rene Ritchie published a great, thorough review of iOS 8 over at iMore. I recommend giving it a read if you’re curious about iOS 8 at all.

This is a fascinating read regarding the discovery of Sonic 2’s unfinished level(s) and how this writer shared it with the game’s creator.
I enjoy the thorough writing on MacStories. Check out Federico Viticci’s post on his Launch Center Pro setup. I’ve been meaning to start using Launch Center Pro for awhile now, but I still haven’t gotten around to it.
Nintendo killed it this year at E3, in my opinion. Aside from demonstrating creativity with their games (which some say has been long absent, though I don’t completely agree with that), they’ve also shown that the GamePad has value and it will be shown through several upcoming games. I look forward to seeing what comes of it.
