Anyone who has accessed forums on a phone knows it can be cumbersome. That is where Tapatalk comes in handy.
However, the app has been designed for a phone.
Enter Tapatalk HD. It has a split screen display to make browsing forums on tablets a bit easier. It is not as pretty as the web versions, but it can be handy.
I have been using the Tapatalk HD Beta for the past few weeks and it is pretty nice IMO. Not all users like the split screen, but it is easy to browse through topics, forums, and has a dropdown to switch forums easily.
Here are some screenshots:
If you are at all interested, head over to get your copy for $0.99 today!
Tomorrow the price goes up to full retail of $4.99.

If you were curious to see some of the preliminary games that are coming out for Tegra 4 equipped devices, then you will want to check out the video above. NVIDIA shared a demo of MadFinger's Dead Trigger 2, and the visuals are very impressive, especially considering it's a first run game for the hardware. It will be interesting to see what level of graphical detail can be achieved once devs have have had some time to play around with the new hardware and really push its boundaries.

Just this morning, NVIDIA shared their new Tegra 4 mobile powerhouse chip at CES, and although this is a very exciting new development, it was not unexpected. In fact, we new (and shared) that it was coming out at CES several weeks ago. However, NVIDIA wasn't done sharing new tech. In fact, the second bit of news they shared turned out to be a huge bombshell.
Apparently, NVIDIA has been developing a new product called Project Shield that is a new Android-based handheld portable gaming console. This new portable gaming device includes a console-style controller with built-in speakers, a 5-inch flipping display powered by the new Tegra 4 processor, and can actually stream games to your HDTV wirelessly.
Additionally, it will come stock with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and supposedly provide up to 38 hours of gaming before needing to recharge the batteries. Lastly, the device goes a step further than that, and can actually be used to stream your PC games (provided they match certain specs) wirelessly to your HDTV, and this is all done through your PC's Steam account.
What can we say about this, but WOW?!? Here's a video and a press release with some more details,

NVIDIA Untethers Gaming with Project SHIELD
Gaming Portable for Open Platforms Designed for Gamers
to Play When, Where, How They Want
LAS VEGAS—CES—Jan. 6, 2013—NVIDIA today announced Project SHIELD, a gaming portable for open platforms, designed for gamers who yearn to play when, where and how they want.
Created with the philosophy that gaming should be open and flexible, Project SHIELD flawlessly plays both Android and PC titles. As a pure Android device, it gives access to any game on Google Play. And as a wireless receiver and controller, it can stream games from a PC powered by NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX GPUs, accessing titles on its STEAM game library from anywhere in the home.
“Project SHIELD was created by NVIDIA engineers who love to game and imagined a new way to play,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer at NVIDIA. “We were inspired by a vision that the rise of mobile and cloud technologies will free us from our boxes, letting us game anywhere, on any screen. We imagined a device that would do for games what the iPod and Kindle have done for music and books, letting us play in a cool new way. We hope other gamers love SHIELD as much as we do.”
Project SHIELD combines the advanced processing power of NVIDIA Tegra® 4, breakthrough game-speed Wi-Fi technology and stunning HD video and audio built into a console-grade controller. It can be used to play on its own integrated screen or on a big screen, and on the couch or on the go.

NVIDIA Introduces World’s Fastest Mobile Processor
Tegra 4 Features 72 Custom GPU Cores, Quad-Core Cortex-A15 CPU for Superb Performance and Efficiency; LTE Enabled with Optional Chipset
LAS VEGAS—CES—Jan. 6, 2013—NVIDIA today introduced NVIDIA® Tegra® 4 , the world’s fastest mobile processor, with record-setting performance and battery life to flawlessly power smartphones and tablets, gaming devices, auto infotainment and navigation systems, and PCs.
Tegra 4 offers exceptional graphics processing, with lightning-fast web browsing, stunning visuals and new camera capabilities through computational photography.
Previously codenamed “Wayne,” Tegra 4 features 72 custom NVIDIA GeForce™ GPU cores – or six times the GPU horsepower of Tegra 3 – which deliver more realistic gaming experiences and higher resolution displays. It includes the first quad-core application of ARM’s most advanced CPU core, the Cortex-A15, which delivers 2.6x faster web browsing and breakthrough performance for apps.
Tegra 4 also enables worldwide 4G LTE voice and data support through an optional chipset, the fifth-generation NVIDIA Icera® i500 processor. More efficient and 40 percent the size of conventional modems, i500 delivers four times the processing capability of its predecessor.
“Tegra 4 provides enormous processing power and efficiency to power smartphones and tablets, gaming devices, auto systems and PCs,” said Phil Carmack, senior vice president of the Tegra business at NVIDIA. ”Its new capabilities, particularly in the area of computational photography, will help improve a whole range of existing products and lead to the creation of exciting new ones.”
Computational Photography Capability
Among the Tegra 4 processor’s breakthroughs is its Computational Photography Architecture, which automatically delivers high dynamic range (HDR) photos and video by fusing together the processing power of the GPU, CPU and the camera’s image-signal processor.
Its HDR capability captures images, including those taken with a flash, the way they are seen by the human eye – with detail in both bright and dark areas.
Unprecedented Power Efficiency
Designed for maximum energy efficiency, Tegra 4 includes a second-generation battery saver core for low power during standard use, and PRISM 2 Display technology to reduce backlight power while delivering superior visuals.
Tegra 4 consumes up to 45 percent less power than its predecessor, Tegra 3, in common use cases. And

We have an interesting new tablet from Asus to share with you guys today. It's called the ME301T MemoPad 10, and it is aimed squarely at the business crowd with a price-tag of around 308 euro ($406). Here's a quick spec breakdown:
- 10.1-inch display with 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution
- NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 16 GB of on-board storage
- Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and 3G Versions
While the specs don't seem to be that spectacular for the price, we suspect that it will have a number of unique software secrutiy features tailored to its niche market that might justify that pricing. We don't know that for sure, but should find out even more at CES next week.

In the past, emulators designed to help you run older Windows games on Android have been lackluster. For the most part, they suffered from weak controls for a number of different reasons, primarily because of the difficulty of translating certain control schemes to a touch-screen. A new beta is being developed called Winulator that seeks to change that. Here's a quote with some of the details,
For now, the only supported game is Caesar III, but StarCraft support is coming along nicely and should be completed soon. In the video above, you can see Starcraft working pretty well on an Android, which is pretty exciting if you want to "wax nostalgic" with some of your old favorite PC games on an Android device. You can download the beta of Winulator free on the Google Play Store.
Yet here comes Winulator – an ambitious project that aims to assist classic games in getting along with touchscreens. In a nutshell, you're provided with a tool that converts Windows executable files into code that Android understands and an application to run that code with.
