Psssst!

If you haven't already grabbed it, there's a new Play Store making its rounds on the Internet. We're not sure what's new yet, but we're sure you'll want to sideload it.

Enjoy!

In part of our restructuring and revival, I wanted to take the time to thank those of you who still follow this account. We'll likely be coming back with a new name, since the old domain is no longer in our possession.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, we also wanted to ask you -- YES, YOU -- what kind of content you'd like to see when we make our triumphant return.

Should we continue to focus solely on Android, or would you like us to broaden our horizons and start covering other various odds and ins from the tech world?

At any rate, we've been anxious to get back to what we do best; bringing our straightforward views and opinions to a community-engaging website that, at the end of the day, just plain has fun doing what they love.

We can't wait to see you all!

Looks great!  But just looking at others, what is the main reason to get this over say Nox, Stark, or Tersus (all really good packs)?  Just wondered your thoughts on them.

It's been an interesting last couple of days in the rather quiet world of +OMG!Droid .  I apologize in advance for being long-winded, but I felt the need to extend the courtesy to let everyone know what’s going on with us considering the events of the last two days.

Over the last few months we’ve been rather quiet and very minimal content.  In all honesty the constant grind of trying to take the same news shit that everyone else already spits out every day and trying to give it some personality because we didn’t WANT to look like everyone else wears on you.  Trying to drive writers to push content out to keep site traffic up on days where the news was so fucking horrible you can’t get that time in your life back sucks.  We’ve been wanting to get something in a new direction to make it original again.  We wanted to do that, and you guys have always held us to a higher set of expectations in what we do.  We liked the edge that we have in our content and the reputation we’ve managed to get for being that rebellious group of bastards throwing spitballs at all the assholes higher in the site rankings who set the standard for this line of work being monotonous and boring as fuck to the people who have to read it.

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to accomplish what we wanted to do.  Things do get in the way.  Personal lives, work, families….blah blah blah.  It happens, and it’s slowed us to a dead stop.  So here we’ve been answering every inquiry with “I don’t know when we’ll be back”.

You can stop asking now.  OMG!Droid is dead and gone.

As of a few days or so ago our domain has been bought out by Android Headlines.  I found out yesterday when Keyan was asking about me promoting AH.  You can obviously guess my confusion since I don’t work for them and have no reason to promote them.  They do just fine on their own.  I checked my routes on dlvr.it to find out what the fuck happened and everything was still pointing to omgdroid.com and there was no new content on our site as expected.  Keyan then caught it on his end today when his content on Feedly was pulling AH content through our name.  We got it confirmed today that the sale was done, they own it now, and I’m guessing that’s that.  If you’re counting and a bit confused you would be correct.  We got clued in yesterday, sale was done a couple of days prior.  That’s how we found out.

Am I pissed?  Yeah, absolutely.  That’s a pretty fucked way to find out.  I didn’t know how much longer this was going to last at the pace we were at and honestly I’m not surprised that we’re closing down shop.  It was certainly a possibility if we couldn’t figure something else out.  I never intended on it ending like this.  We always busted our asses to maintain a direct interaction with our readers and have been fortunate enough to keep what I like to consider the best reader base of just about any site.  You guys always kept it entertaining for us and we wanted to do the same in return.  Writing for OMG allowed me the freedom that if I wanted to be a complete asshole in a post just because I was in a shitty mood and then tell everyone in the comments to eat a bag of dicks, which I’ve done, I could with no recourse because that’s who we were.  It kept it fun.

I wanted to be the first to not only let everyone know what the fuck is going on amidst the confusion, but to apologize as well.  I’ve been fortunate to be part of OMG for a good majority of its short time on the interwebz and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.  You guys are fucking awesome and made all the hours we put into this completely worth it.  I haven’t the slightest clue as to what happens from here and what options will come up but sadly this chapter has closed.  If you have us in any RSS feeds or anything, go ahead and delete it because none of that is us.  The domain was still pointing at our host as of last night but everything is redirecting to AH now.  Honestly I don’t even know as of now if they own just the domain or if they own all the name rights and everything else.  Fuck it though….shit happens.

Again, thank you all for everything.  We grew OMGDroid to a level a small group of assholes who barely manage a sober thought should have ever accomplished and we owe EVERYTHING to you guys.  It’s been a blast.

Introduction
OMG!Droid is a stellar source for Google and/or Android news, rumors, game and app reviews, and much more. We provide fresh content daily and strive to do so in a timely fashion. Our mission is to bring information to both new and veteran Android users and provide a community that we can call our own. Our site was started in July, 2011, around the same time Google+ was launched in beta. Our following began to grow quickly and the rest has been falling into place ever since.
