Comment: Where is the Android app? (Score 1) 524 524

Speaking of Android, I'm having a difficult time finding this "Plane Finder AR" app for anything other than iPhone. There is another "Plane Finder" app that has a paltry 3/5 star rating in the app store, and seems to be just a Google Maps overlay of passing planes, not a Google Sky Map type "point your camera, display what's there" app. Anyone got a link to an .apk?

I run a bit of a North Korean news aggregation and info site. I posted a few weeks ago about a state-run newspaper site, uriminzokkiri.com, that hosts a number of North Korean made flash games you can play in your browser. Some of them are actually pretty fun! Links to the games, writeup and game descriptions can be found here: http://www.reasonableman.net/archives/250 The best part is, none of the corporate web blocking apps out there are restricting a North Korean website! :)

For a game that was out in Japan 3 months previously, I am astounded at the quality of the dubbing and voice acting of FFXIII. Even previous titles in the franchise had acting that made me wince (FFX most of all, the first in the franchise to attempt it). There's a heavy cost for this sort of quality, however, and if anyone has the money to throw at this kind of thing, it's Square-Enix on their flagship franchise.

Gravity brings me down.
