Burn the Rope Hits Android Market

The very popular and ultra-addictive game Burn the Rope has come to Android today.  Available for free on any handset running 1.6 or higher (virtually everyone!), the puzzle adventure game features 112 levels at launch.  The graphics are super sharp and game play is easy to pick up.  Unfortunately (or not), it’s also hard to put down.  For those of you who master the game quickly, Big Blue Bubble promises additional levels are “coming soon”.  In the meanwhile, be sure to check out the user submitted Puzzle of the Day section for something new each day. Download link and screen shots after the break!

Why Was PhoneFusion Pulled from the Android Market?

Late last week, news broke that PhoneFusion’s Visual Voicemail app had been pulled from the Android Market by Google. Speculation has swirled since then about the reason why, but no explanation seemed to quite ring true. The extent of Google’s official statement is that “we remove applications from Android Market that violate our terms of service.”

However, after speaking with people with knowledge of the matter, we can rule a couple of speculative explanations out and take a stab at what’s likely the case. We’ll also see how Google could have avoided a lot of distress and bad press by handling the situation differently.

    Almost 20MB and not allowed to move it to the SD Card? Fun or not, this game isn’t staying on my phone.

    FYI: “SMS permission is required for in-game purchases”

    Now how does that make sense?
