PreCentral: Astraware TouchPad Totalizer tops 5000, OddBlob and Astraware Casino en route

Recommended Posts

Astraware TouchPad Totalizer tops 5000, OddBlob and Astraware Casino en route

Folks, it happened: Astraware's TouchPad Totalizer tracker of TouchPad game sales finally topped 5,000 sales, the top level for Astraware's we'll-make-these-if-you-buy-enough-of-those deal. Granted, 5,000 isn't a huge number for Astraware; they likely sell more than that in a day on iOS or Android - when you're on a platform that sells three million units in a weekend, five thousand is a drop in the bucket for a firm like Astraware.

The progress up the Totalizer totem pole has seen the release of Astraware Mahjong HD to test the waters, with Sudoku HD and Astraware Solitaire following as further sales targets fell. But things hit a hitch around the 3500 mark, where one would find the popular Astraware game OddBlob. Sudoku and Solitaire saw releases shortly after hitting the sales targets, but OddBlob has not hit the TouchPad App Catalog yet despite it having been quite some time since the sales target was hit.

Asked about this seeming oversight on the Twitters, Astraware admitted that the process of transferring OddBlob to the TouchPad "has taken longer than expected", so you should expect Astraware Casino to hit first. That said, OddBlob and Casino are both popular games and we wouldn't be surprised to see them sell a few thousand copies on the TouchPad eventually.

It's a testament to Astraware that they're willing to put the work into using the webOS PDK to bring their apps to the TouchPad. As the delay with OddBlob has shown, it's not always super easy to make the transfer happen, but we're happen to see Astraware making the effort even for just the few thousand sales that the TouchPad user community can bring. Sometimes it's not about the money, though we doubt Astraware would be doing this if they weren't at least breaking even - that's why they set up the Totalizer in the first place, so that we could see ourselves what it would take to make it worthwhile in Astraware's eyes.

    • My TV powers up and put the sound level at 100% by itself

      Hi, I bought a 47LB630V TV years ago, but since few weeks, my TV is going crazy. In stand by mode, it turns on by itself without any user interaction (by the remote controller or by the joystick button). Then, the level of the sound is increasing to the maximum. In the same time, it is impossible to use the remote controller for minutes. When it happened, some time, I managed to decrease the level, but then, it goes up again to the maximum. I tried to disconnect my TV from internet, perform a reset configuration. I also tried to downgrade the firmware (05.05.35 to 03.xx.xx). The problem stil occurs. It seems that somehow, it is like a program that forces the joystick button to move to left. When I am in the setting menu, and my TV goes crazy, the cursor is always put on the left-most element. Does someone already experience that ? It is like my TV was infected by a sort-of rootkit. Thanks,

    • webOS OSE on HP Touchpad?

      With the release of webOS OSE, I'm wondering if it's able to run on the HP Touchpad. I wonder if someone will attempt to port it over.   Might give me a reason to pull out the old Touchpad, currently have an older Android system on it and haven't messed with it in over a year.

    • LG Web OS 5.0 Smart TV? What happened to 4.0?

      I'm not sure if this is real but saw this article published where they claim they have webos 5.0 on their LG TV.  See below.   Note : You can’t directly go from WebOS 3.5 to WebOS 5.3 . My experience after using LG LH 604 T Full HD Version review after using it for 4 months. What did we checked before switching or buying this Television ? The picture quality, price, Miracast to mirror my laptop screen and ability to stream 1080p  video without any problem. Is there a non FHD version ? Yes and the price is lower and all the specs same as that of FHD version. Every thing in short after my 4 months of experience. Pros Super sharp display (FHD, IPS Panel) and viewing angles Cheaper than other bands Dust won’t settle on your screen, but on other parts dust may settle if you are living a dusty region WebOS frequently updated with patches Eye comfort mode Good sound quality Supports almost all video and audio formats like MKV, AVI, DiviX, AAC etc Inbuilt apps for Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and some country specific apps Support for Miracast or screen sharing or Inter WiDi. Note WiDi is used only in old laptops models Screen can be turned off, when playing only music. Remote with pointer mouse, so you can type songs or movie names quickly in YouTube, Netflix etc on the on screen keyboard. Also when you connect or mirror your laptop screen to this TV, remote pointer can be used as mouse and there is scroller on the remote. But only double click supported, no right nor left clicks Subtitles in the video is supported 2 Years LG warranty (Note this is country specific, so do ask your seller about this) Very less power consumption, screen consumes 4% of power, speakers consumes (20 Watt) 3% of total power input Cons TV lags Sound mode can’t be changed quickly like picture mode No support for wireless headphones Web browser closes after we viewed around 15 1080p YouTube videos, it says out of memory and during restart of the browser the crashed web page is shown for us to continue playing videos In built YouTube app settings has no option to set resolution of video to play only 1080p videos Universal remote costs around $75 if you need to buy a new one, note : till now there are no probs with my universal which I clubbed with my set top box (CISCO one) and all functions are supported During Miracast laptop mouse lags and still now I don’t know how to solve this issue. Documents like docx,PDF can’t be opened from flash drive or hard drive, but from Miracast its possible. Does it support USB mode of android mobiles ? My Sony Xperia USB mode supported but my lenovo USB mode not supported and this is weird! Final Thought For this price and with this much features loaded, we say its a good go one. If you need any info or clarify any doubts about this model, just drop a comment and I will answer that for you in a working day. Source article: https://www.techwibe.com/lg-full-hd-tv-webos/
