One for Eleven is now available to download on iOS and Android


Think you’ve got what it takes to handle the pressure cooker environment of a football manager?

Well you’re in luck, as Actoz Soft have just released One For Eleven, a Free-to-Play football management game for iOS and Android devices. Giving you the chance to manage some of the biggest names in the sport, you pick the tactics, formation, and line-ups for matches – and then have to watch your assembled squad fares against a range of opposition. Nail biting is optional. There are two ways to watch matches too, with Live Broadcast mode allowing you to get a top-down view of the field and all the players on it. Text Broadcast mode is the other less flashy method, updating you on matches through text alone.

So if you want to see if you’ve got what it takes in the managerial hotseat you can get One For Eleven from the App Store or Google Play for free, right now.

Don’t forget to visit the One For Eleven website, or the game’s Facebook page for more details though.

Etymotic delivers Awareness app to Android and iOS

Audiophiles are already aware of Etymotic, the company that single-handedly invented the world of inner earphones. Their ER4 series revolutionised portable audio before you were born. I can think of no other name to which my silly bicycle hat is tipped to more often. God bless you Etymotic. Well, their rather well-known app collaboration with Essensy, Awareness, has finally made it to Android, too. Awareness allows you to hear what’s around you no matter that you’re plugged into some of the best noise-isolating earphones in the world. Etymotic have always been about hearing safety. Awareness uses the microphones in their hf3 and mc3 headsets to filter in the important stuff: announcements, safety alerts, etc., so that you can enjoy your music in safety.

Awareness has been available on iOS for a while, but it’s great to see Android getting some love (especially since I’ve become an iBasso DX100 owner). Evidently, you don’t have to be plugged into 4,1 Ice Cream Sandwich to use the functionality, either. (God knows you are damned lucky if you can get 4,1 working on your system.) Now, I don’t have either earphone to test Awareness in iOS or Android, but damn it, it doesn’t matter. Someone will. Enjoy your music in safety, people.

Because We May: App Sales for iOS, Android and PC/Mac Platforms

Just in time for the long Memorial Day Weekend, a bunch of (indie) developers have banded together and created the “Because We May” initiative, slashing prices off their titles in an attempt to promote their work.

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.
