If you take out the Gameloft back catalog, 95% of my games are compatible (from around 50).
Unfortunately, I made the mistake of pointing out to the Humble guys that Osmos HD in the Humble Android Bundle does not work with Xolo, and the Google Play version does... the response from Apportable (who I assume helps the devs port their IOS apps to Android?) was to remove Osmos HD from the Google Play store for Xolo users... which struck me by surprise (you can check my twitter to see how that played out).

If indeed they fix the games, only "They Need To Be Fed" will be in a non-working state (YoYo games requested I submit a bug, so I will).

This is sort of app related but I just wanted to check some things.

Asphalt 7 - how is performance in this game on ICS? Any slowdown?

Fruit Ninja.. yeah it's old but does the phone register the swipes correctly?

The phone has NFC I believe.. has anybody tried to install Google Wallet on here or any other payment app that uses NFC like Quick Tap?

And finally.. does the phone have the TV-Screen screen off animation on ICS? :P


Oh wait one more. Are there ANY games that do perform badly on the phone running ICS? Slowdown etc.

Asphalt 7 no slow downs, performs well. Although the draw distance is seen a little, which I believe may be down to the game itself. When I say a little, I mean you can see in the distance slightly the graphics forming if that makes sense, but no lags etc.

Fruit ninja plays very well on osd much better than on my g300, every swipe registered clearly.

Not tried NFC so cannot comment,

No tv animations :( Yeah I love those too.

I have not found any games that lag at all on ics, obviously if I did find one it would be due to incompatibility as the device can play every game I have thrown at it.

Hmm. Looks like I'll have to have a go enabling the TV Screen animation. Fingers crossed I'll have a San Diego soon.

I think it can be done in UOT as I done a battery mod this morning with no problems, always a little scary with no CWM :lol:

Yeah I know, paul and ricky tried that.

Well its good to know your getting one too, could do with a few devs round here :D maybe some flb custom rom if bootloader cracked ?

edit: oh forgot, ducati challenge does not work, says compatible, however, the menus are all messed up, wrong way round it appears.

Early days. And if we get the boot loader bypassed then certainly will be some custom ROMs for sure.

It is certainly looking a lot more possitive with ics and root, only few weeks ago it was like a desert here.

Games with lags:
1) Battle Group (got this one from some IndieGala Android bundle), on Gingerbread it loaded, but was unplayable. With ICS, there are some slowdowns and the speech is chopped, but the game itself is playable
2) Zen Bound 2 - Works, but does not feel "smooth" like it should be, I consider this playable as well.

Other than those games, the device pretty much coped with anything I threw at it (~50 games :) )

I found out that BBC Media Player is in fact Adobe Air so that makes sense.

It is on play store for everyone with this device, but it cannot be downloaded due to " package file is not signed correctly" whatever that means, apart from the obvious lol ?

It may well work if we can get the apk, could just be some market issue stopping download.

Ok I got abode air apk, lets see if it installs........

Ok it appears to be the device that has the problem with the app:

lol, Given how much flak BBC iPlayer & Media Player get on reviews (and have for quite awhile now) is there any particular reason you're bothering with them?
