Do you fantasise about green robot thingies in your trouser pocket and do you like to tell people about it?

If so what the bloody hell are you waiting for?

Act now!
I thought it was about time to address some rumblings and whispers that some of you have been having about us. I will try and explain as much as I am able to right now.

First things first. The site is not dead, nor has it failed. 

I guess a good way to explain it is that we are still in the Beta stage. It is taking a little longer than I did expect. I am being faced with quite a few issues away from the site that I am unable to talk about here. That means until these issues get fixed we keep on "beta testing". 

These are all back-end issues that I will not talk about here, except to say that I am sorry it is taking longer than expected. Hopefully it will only last a few more weeks.

I know I could have got everything sorted out in the background, hidden away and teased the eventual launch. To be honest I did not want to do that. I did not want to lie to anyone about what I was doing or working on. Somehow that path did not feel right to me.

So this is the way it is going to be for a little while longer. For those of you who are sticking around I thank you. Those of you who have been supportive so far it really does mean so much.

I would also like to point out that we have a couple of openings for writers. If you are reading this and you are interested, or if you know someone who would be let them know. You can either hit us up here, hit me up on my personal profile or email the site at and let me know.

Again, thank you for understand what is going on with us. I hope this will clear up any fear and doubts that any of you have that your faith in us is well placed.

As part of their incentive plan +Phones 4u are offering new Sony Z2 çustomers £50 Google Play Credit.

This got me to thinking, what would I spend £50 on in the play store? And more importantly how useful would £50 play credit really be?

I'm not an avid mobile gamer, I have purchased a few FPS games in the past, but prefer to play on a tablet, I just think it makes for a better experience. Thus far i have never seen the need to purchase or rent video content, though with a chrome cast now, maybe I might consider it.

My music taste isn't widely catered for on Play music either. Only a hand full of Aussie Hiphop artists release albums for sale on Play Music, and those that do I have mostly already purchased. Perhaps I could try Google Music's subscription service for a couple of months, but as I live in a fairly rural area, streaming content when out of wifi range is not an option.

When it comes to apps, I have been an Android user for over 4 years now so most of my daily use paid apps like Tunin Pro, Beautiful Widgets etc are already paid for. To be honest the majority of my most widely used Andriod apps are free. Again with £50 free I might be predisposed to give more paid apps a go.

I wish that we could buy phone /chromebook accessories directly from the Pay store as that would definately be of interest.

If you got a £50 voucher for the Play store how would you spend it?

I'm in the same boat as you. On Android I'd say rent movies as it really works well on Chromecast. I was given a £25 iTunes voucher for xmas 2013 and I still have £21 to spend. The trouble I think app developers are facing now is that the market has matured and most people (both iOS and Android) have invested so much already that the next big challenge is going to be getting people to change their habits and the apps that they regularly use. People like my folks will only use apps that I tell them to and would never think to go 'shopping' in the play / app store. Of course 'the kids' are going to drive trends, but even that won't make that £50 credit disappear. It's a shame that that £50 is only for digital content and not hardware.
