Wednesday App Review: Dotello

While I enjoy matching games, I have always thought that they were a little on the boring side. After all, it’s the same basic problem repeated over and over and over. Regardless as to the challenge, eventually I tend to get fed up with such things. Dotello, however, is a slightly different take on your traditional matching game, and the added elements make this a great little puzzle game.

New MVNO, Faith Wireless, Donates to Your Church

A couple of weeks ago, a new Sprint MVNO, Faith Wireless, launched with a niche offering for religious smartphone users. Through Faith Wireless, customers can have 10% of every phone top-up donated directly to their church.

Twigby Drops Prices on Plans

The list of Sprint MVNOs to keep up with is vast—more than 30 at my last count—so occasionally we’ll miss some. One such MVNO is Twigby, which launched early last year.

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you.

RingPlus Drops Lawsuit Against Sprint

A couple weeks ago, RingPlus, the Sprint freemium MVNO, suddenly went dark. New activations were suddenly no longer available, and RingPlus staff, which were normally very active on the forums, were noticeably absent. As it turned out, the company had fallen into some problems with Sprint and even filed a lawsuit. However, it looks like the suit has been dismissed with prejudice, which means that it can never be brought up again.

Wednesday App Review: Egg, Inc.

Incremental games, when scaled properly, can be some of the most fun time-wasting games there are.

Out of all of the major network carriers, Verizon has always been the one that has cared about its prepaid division the least. The carrier has even gone so far as to say that prepaid isn’t where it makes its money and doesn’t need to be grown any. However, it seems like in the last few months the carrier has reversed its opinion and recently began offering prepaid plans through an exclusive dealer.
