Heartbeat and Droidcon-Tour

In the last weeks I received a lot of messages asking whether this blog is still alive or not. It is. And there will be more income reports. And ASO articles. And so on.

Please excuse the long time of my absence, I’ll try to bring you up-to-date on the income side ASAP.


However, if some of you guys can’t wait or for some reason always wanted to meet me in person, here you go:

Starting tomorrow, I and other members of ANDLABS will attend three of the next Droidcons in Europe, the exact dates are:

London, 24th and 25th of October,

Amsterdam, 22nd and 23rd of November and

Murcia, 6th and 7th of December.

We will give some talks about AndEngine and a mobile multiplayer framework we are currently developing. So if you’re attending one of the conferences, let me know.


Wanted: Beta Tester

ANDLABS will soon release a new, terrific 2D game for the Android platform (of course). For this game, we need beta testers. I can’t tell you much about the content, but four things are for sure:

  • It’s an absolutely new concept
  • If you like tower defense games, you will love it
  • If you like physics games, you will love it
  • The beta test will start in the period of mid to end of August.

So if you are interested: Good choice! Just leave your e-mail-adress in the comments (I will delete it before approving your comment).

Thank you very much, I’m convinced you will like this game.

Edit: already 10 sign ups here plus two on G+. You guys are great!

Android DevCamp Stuttgart 2

This weekend, ANDLABS was a sponsor of the Android DevCamp Stuttgart 2, #adcs2. Of course some of us, including me, were attending.

The first day, friday, started at 2:30 pm and soon after, the hackathon started. I did a little bit about my AndEngine knowledge and worked on optimizing apps and ads for Android tablets. All the sudden, at 6 pm, the hackathon was over. Could have been longer in my opinion, because good software needs time.

At the evening, the after-hackathon-event started at a small bar-basement in the heart of Stuttgart. The first 1000 € of drinks were sponsored, hence the atmosphere was good.

On saturday the barcamp started. I did a talk about advertising and monetising apps with @Goddchen. After the lunch, a cross-rate-our-apps session and a session on Open Intents and with @fmdroid and @flowdi followed.

The great highlight and also last session was called “pitching bullshit” by @derwildemomo which was really fun and entertaining.

I have been at some Android events and barcamps so far, but the great thing about the adcs2 was its relaxed, open atmosphere which made it a really enjoyable and the best Android event I ever attended (so far).

I want to thank the organization team, the attendants, speakers and the other sponsors of course, who all together made this great event happen!
