NEW App- Scattergories TimerDie 7-9-14

I have created a new app called Scattergories TimerDie. It combines two of my apps into one and makes it very similar to my computer game Scattergories Timer and Die. The app has been in the Play Store for a couple weeks now but I have just added some new features to it so I thought it would be a good time to talk about it.

Below are the features Scattergpries TimerDie offers.
- It is FREE!
- It chooses a random letter
- There is a reroll button incase you don't like the letter
- Has 1, 2 and 3 minute timer options. Default is 3 minutes
- Landscape orientation so you can use it with the new Chromecast mirroring function
- Not to worry portriat orientation is still possible.
- Audible alerts
- Letter and time always viewable
- Screen stays on so you don't have to worry about it going to sleep

The app is ready for download in the Play Store and it is free so go grab it.

NEW Work From Home Leads App 6-25-14

I currently have the blessing to work from home and absolutely love it. I have had several work form home jobs ranging from full time, part time and even extra income jobs. I continue to search the web daily for other work at home jobs and decided to share the love through an app. The app is called Work From Home Leads or WFHL for short. I update it daily with new legitimate work from home leads I find. The app is FREE and can be downloaded from the Play Store. You can also find it through My Apps section.

I hope you all enjoy the app and find the job you are looking for.

New Computer Program and My Market Update 6-20-14

I just realized that half of my download links in My Market section were broken. I have now fixed them and am using Mediafire to host the downloads so hopefully the links won't ever break again.

I have also added a new computer program to the My Marlet section. It is called P.Robbie's Control Box and provides you with the options to shutdown, reboot or hibernate. The download link can be found in My Market section.

Monthly Update 4-9-14

Well it looks like I have gone from at least one new post a week to one a month now. I have a lot going on right now with an Amazing new job and a new baby boy but I still need to do better. I am going to start by posting twice a month and then get back to once a week again. I mean I didn't even post about conference this month, how sad is that?

To get everyone caught up I have finished another SMACK app. This one is Smack Obama 2 and takes place in the Oval office with secret security running around. If you hit the secret service you will lose a point. It can be found for free in the Play Store

I could still use help with phrases for my LDS Catch Phrase app, The app continues to see interest from users and I would like to offer them more phrases to play with.

I have started using Ai1LiveComplete to build my Android apps. It is just like MIT App Inventor but with a lot more options including a super simple Ads block!! It does cost 5 bucks a month for membership but it is well worth it if you start making money from the ads.

I am planning on doing a new video tutorial. I am not sure if it will be a new tutorial all together or if I will take one of my written tutorials and do a video for it but a new video tutorial is coming.

I think that is all for today. So until next time keep hacking.

New Apps 3-9-14

I have uploaded 3 new apps to the Play Store. They are Smack Miley, Smack Bieber, and Smack Putin. I am really excited about these apps because they share the same global score board as my Smack Obama app. That way there can be 4 times as many scores to compete against and try to beat. The game play is the same and is just my take on the old school Whack a Mole game. You can go check these new apps and all of my other ones by clikcing on the My Apps section above or using this link P.Robbie Products Apps.

I create all of my apps for fun and share them so others can have fun with them. If you are affended by fun then thats all on you.

New Tutorial 1-24-14

I have just finished a new written tutorial on how to port Android apps to BlackBerry. I said alomst a year ago that I would write this tutorial but I am glad I waited because now the process is basically only two steps. That is right it is even easier then before. You can check out the tutorial in my Written Tutorials section.

If you have an APK laying around I recommend porting it over to BlackBerry and uploading it to BlackBerry App World because they are offering 500 free reward points until the 28th. You can read more about that offer HERE.

New BlackBerry App 1-24-14

I have just ported and uploaded my Baby Colors app to the BlackBerry App World. I still don't have a BlackBerry device but the reviews tell me people are liking my apps on BlackBerry just as much as they do on Android. The porting process is super simple too so for every Android app I build it is like I built a BlackBerry app at the same time.

If you have a BlackBerry you can check out all of my BlackBerry apps HERE.

CES 2014 1/11/14

I went to CES (Consumer Electronics Show) for the first time this year and it did not disappoint. It was amazing! I met some awesome people, learned some great things, and got to see a ton of cool tech. I think CES should be on everyones bucket list and everyone should attend at least once. I hope I get to go again next year too.

Quote Of The Day 12/19/13

We have all heard of the quote "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Well the one I am sharing today tells you how to find that job you will love.

"You ought to find something that you love so much that when you don’t have to think about anything, that’s what you think about."

This is a quote given by Elder Eyring's father and is one of my favorite quotes of all time. It is just so true. And that is exactly how I feel when I have a job that revolves around Android. I enjoy thinking about anything Android so much that when I am not on the clock I am still thinking about Android.

Happy Halloween 10/31/13

It is that time of year again where we can dress up and ask for candy. It is a fantastic holiday and one that I truly enjoy. I just wanted to say Happy Halloween to all of you.

Also I know I have been slacking a lot lately and I am very sorry for that. I have been super busy but haven't forgotten about my site. I have some great things in the works including a new archive setup that will allow you to search for previous posts by months so you don't have to scroll through everything to find the one thing you want. Everything should be updated before Christmas and I will start posting more again in November.

General Conference is Happening! 10/4/13

Generel Conference happens every first week end of April and October and I know this but every time I forget to announce it before it happens. Not this time though I finally remembered to announce before it actually happened. Hurray for me! It is amazing to hear the prophet of God speak and the inspiration that he shares. I am even more excited about it this time around because I get to use my ChromeCast to stream it to my big screen. That is one of the main reasons why I got a ChromeCast. You can watch General Conference through this link http://www.lds.org/general-conference/watch?lang=eng or just below.

New Computer Program Baby Colors 8/21/13

I have finished turning my Baby Colors app into a computer program. It is currently only for Windows computers but I play on making it available for Macs and Linux in the near future.

My Baby Colors program is very simple and all it does it display a different color and make a sound each time a key on the keyboard is pressed. The keys that will work are any number or letter, the arrow keys and the space bar. By the way my son LOVES! this game/program. He will actually come into my office and ask to play it.

If you would like to download Baby Colors for Windows computers you can through My Market section or through THIS link.

Custom Rom for Coby Kyros 8042 8/11/13

I have uploaded a custom rom for the Coby Kyros 8042 tonight and wanted to share the link with all of you. Now this is not my rom but Sokar311's from Androidtablet.net. The original rom thread can be found HERE. Some of the mods at Androidtablets.net decided the rom was to harmful and decided to remove the link. Lucky I had it downloaded and stored locally so I could upload it to a new location. This rom will root and install Google apps including the Play Store to your Coby Kyros 8042. This rom is ONLY for the Coby Kyros 8042 and SHOULD NOT be used on any other device.

All of the instructions to use this rom can be found at the original thread HERE. You will see this rom requires the use of Livesuit which can really really mess up your device, that is why the link was removed from Androidtablets.net. If you do not fill comfortable with the instructions or tools needed to use this rom DO NOT USE IT. The only reason I reuploaded it and am sharing it with all of you is because I had soft bricked my tablet and this was the only rom that fixed it. If I could have used something else I would have but this rom does work and works very well if you know what you are doing.

Once again DO NOT use this rom if you do not fill comfortable with the instructions and tools. IF YOU DO USE THIS ROM AND SOMETHING GOES WRONG IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT AND ONLY YOUR FAULT. No one else is to blame but you and no one else is responsible for the outcome.

If you still want to or need to use this rom you can download it from HERE

Update 8/4/13

Here is an update of some of my past projects and some that I have planned for the near future.

1- Still updating LDS Catch Phrase with more phrases as quickly as I get them. I could always use more so please go help out.
2- I have turned my Baby Colors app into a computer program and will be uploaded it for FREE soon.
3- I thought my next tutorial was going to be on using Game Maker to make GUI's for batch scripts but I have decided to turn it into a video, that’s why it is taking a little bit longer.
4- This one I am pretty excited about. I have compiled a list with details of 15 things you can do with old Android devices. I will be completing it soon and then adding it here. Some of the ideas you might have thought of in the past or actually done but I hope at least one will be new.

So make sure to keep coming back to see all of this great new stuff and more coming in the near future.

How to Get Paid to Use Your Phone 7/21/13

I came across this cool new app today that I want to tell all of you about. The app is called Locket. Locket is a lock screen replacement app but the coolest part is that is actually pays you to use your Android device. Locket will replace your lock screen with an ad. You can either swipe to view the ad or just swipe to unlock your phone normally. No matter what option you choose you get paid 1 cent. It is really that easy. Just unlock your phone and get 1 cent. They do have a limit though that is really important to know, you will only get paid for 3 unlocks per hour. I know it doesn't sound like much but still it is money in your pocket for doing something you already do for free all day long. I just started today but I am already seeing the pennies pile up. Also as an added bonus if you get others to download the app and start using it you get paid 1 dollar per person. If you are interested in trying this app out you can find it in the link below.

Add GUI to Batch Scripts Easily 7/13/13

Recently I have gotten into batch scripting and I really like it. The biggest issue for me is that batch scripts are only text base and really have no graphic user interface at all. So I did a lot of searching and testing and really couldn't find anything that was super simple to add a GUI to a batch script. Then I finally found it. The easiest method ever to add GUI to batch scripts is to use Gamemaker. I am working on a tutorial to share my method but if you are a go getter you don't have to wait for me.

SORRY! 6/10/13

I want to say sorry to anyone who tried to visit my site this past week. The hosting company I was using suspended my account and wouldn't unsuspend it unless I upgraded. So what did I do? I changed host companies. It took a little longer than it should because I was out of town but my website is back up and running and is as good as new. It is always a good idea to keep a complete backup of your website. Even if you make just a small change create a backup in case something happens to it.

For those that are wondering I was using 000webhost and am now using Awardspace. I recommend staying away from 000webhost because it sounds like they can shut down your website anytime they want for no reason. We will see how Awardspace works going forward but from the reviews it is a pretty good host company.

New App- Baby Colors 5/19/13

I have created a new app called Baby Colors. It is a very simple app that changes colors and makes a sound when the screen is pressed. Ever since my son could control his hands I wanted to make an app that would entertain him and not be to in-depth. So I created Baby Colors. I think this app is a great starter app for even the smallest children.

It is not on the Play Store yet, it should be later this week. If you want it now though you can download it and install it from HERE

Easiest Method to Create an Android App 4/28/13

I have written a new tutorial that walks you through the easiest method possible to create an Android app. The method is easier than using App Inventor and is cheaper than using a paid online service. All you need besides your Android device is Tasker available for 1.99 USD in the Play Store and Tasker App Factory available for free in the Play Store. Once you have those two apps installed you can start creating your own apps. Your apps will be exported in APK format which then you can share with anyone you want to or you can upload them to the Play Store and share them that way.

You can find this new tutorial in my Written Tutorial section.

To prepare for Fast 6 I have been going through and watching all of the previous movies in the Franchise.

You can use these links in conjunction with my written tutorial on how to watch movies online free. Doing so will allow you to watch all of the movies in the Fast and Furious franchise online for free. The links are in order of story line for the franchise. I also added in some short films that help tie together some of the films. I have not tested these links because I have the movies and do not need them but I am almost positive that they will all work for you.

Future Google Products 4/10/13

There are a lot of awesome products and rumors coming out of Google right now. The most common ones are Google Glass, the X phone (I know it is Motorola but Google owns Motorola now) and Keylime Pie. These are all awesome products and I am excited for all of them but there is one product that Google is offering that is not getting as much attention as I think it should. That product is Google Fiber. Google Fiber is on the top of my want list of Google products. I would rather pay 1500 dollars for Google Fiber then I would for Google Glass. Do not get me wrong I will be picking up Google Glass at some point in the future but Google Fiber is what I want now. Just wanted to share that thought with all of you :)

What is the product you are most looking for to come out of Google? If you feel like it please share it with me through my contact page, maybe I will throw together a poll later too.

My Newest Project 3/19/13

I have been working on a new project that has been pretty fun for me to do. With the help of my Sunday school class I am creating a new app called LDS Catch Phrase. The titled pretty much gives it away but I am making a Catch Phrase type game that will contain LDS phrases and lingo. The app is currently in Alpha version but is still pretty fun.

I have decided to turn LDS Catch Phrase into a website too. You will be able to play the game right from the website and it will be home to any information that has to do with LDS Catch Phrase. The url for the website will be www.ldscatchphrase.tk but until it is finished you can view it through the link below.

Email from Google 3/6/13

I was reading through my email this morning and came a cross one from Google. I got all excited to read it but the excitement was short lived. It was to inform me that one of my apps was being removed from the Play Store for copyright infringement. This is a very sad day for me and a sad day for Halo fans that use Android. The app being removed is my Master Chief live wallpaper.

Good news though for those still interested in the Master Chief live wallpaper, I will be hosting it here in my Market so everyone can still download it.

I have Apps in Blackberry App World! 2/15/13

I now have 4 apps in the Blackberry App World. I know Blackberry has fallen out of the smartphone race in past years but with their new Blackberry 10 software I think they will join the race again. My four current apps in the Blackberry App World are 3 sounds (not in the Play Store yet), P.Robbie the Psychic (not in the Play Store yet), P.Robbie Products (not in the Play Store yet) and Penelope (in the Play Store too). As you can see three of the apps aren’t even in the Play Store yet which means more Android apps from me in the near future.

I don't even own a Blackberry devices but they have made it so easy to port your Android apps over to a Blackberry app I think my mom could even do it. I will be writing up a tutorial on the porting process in the near future so make sure to come back and check it out.

Where to get cheap Beats by Dre 2/4/13

Around Christmas time I was looking for a place to get cheap Beats by Dre. I was not looking for the real deal that would cost me 500 bucks. I was fine with knock off ones that would cost 50 dollars. I searched high and low and couldn't really find anywhere that had a good selection of knock offs. I finally was able to find a website that had a wide selection and was super cheap. I am adding this here more as an archive so I do not lose the link and also so it is easier for others to find. If you are interested in checking it out the link is below.

Feedback About My Products 12/1/12

I love receiving emails giving me feedback on my products even if they are negative feedbacks. Most of the feedback I receive is about my apps and one app in particular, Smack Obama. I know that my Smack Obama app is controversial and may rub some people the wrong way (including some of my family) but I didn't create it to do that. I created Smack Obama as a fun take on whack a mole and to be a simple stress reliever. I don't apologize for my Smack Obama app because it isn't created to offend anyone and I stand by it as a fun and Creative app, that’s all it is. Having said that I have decided to create a new section here at probbieproducts.com, it is going to be a feedback section where I paste all of the feedback I receive positive or negative about my website. I will edit the feedback as I see fit to keep it PG rated but most of it will just be a straight copy and paste job. To kick things off I have one I just received the other day about my Smack Obama app. Without further delay here it is.

I don't think it was a good idea to make these games. It’s very disrespectful! I'm not going to even tell you how much trouble you can get in for making games like this. I'm not going to even argue. I'm just saying you need to take these idiotic displays down! As much as I don't like Mitt Romney, I wouldn't dare make a horrible game like this. This is very uncalled for. If I came out with a game slapping Mitt Romney, I don't think you would like it. This is not fun, or funny! I don't care how much you dont like THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF AMERICA, this is very childish and inconsiderate!!!

P.S. If Obama has an issue with this app (which I highly doubt he does) please contact me and lets discuss it.

General Conference 10/6/12

For those that do not know, General Conference is a worldwide conference where the prophet and apostles of the world speak. General Conference happens the first weekend of April and October every year. Each General Conference has 4 sessions 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday, the first session was this morning and it was fantastic! If you are interested in watching the next 3 sessions of General Conference you can right here on my site or at this website http://www.lds.org/general-conference/watch?lang=eng. Update- You can now watch a rerun at that website.

How to get FREE cellphone service 9/27/12

Switching carriers and phone plans is a bitter sweet moment. You know what you are getting from your current provider good and bad and you also have dialed in the amount of minutes, texts and data you use each month. But there may be a better deal out there that meets your needs and you can live with.

This is the position I was in for the past couple of weeks. I had been a Verizon user sense the Blackberry Storm 1 came out and have been happy with their service, but it was still costing me too much per month. I was in a family plan with 5 total phone lines (the most you can have). I was grandfathered into an unlimited data plan and I had a 20 percent discount through my work. Still my phone bill was 60 bucks a month! It was time for me to save some money and start looking for a change. My search brought me to the vast majority of pre-paid services available because they offer great coverage/service plans at a super cheap price. I then found a pre-paid service that would pay me to use it and the best part was it uses one of the 4 major carrier’s towers.

Solavei is a pre-paid service that is backed and runs off the T-Mobile towers. The pre-paid plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited data though you can be throttled but the first 4gb are grunted 4g speed all for 49.99 dollars a month. Solavei then goes above and beyond anything any carrier has done before and offers a marketing plan that will pay you for getting others to sign up. Every 3 people you sign will earned you 20 bucks a month and then every 3 people they sign up owns you 20 more dollars a month. The graph that Solavei provides shows how someone could make 20,000 dollars a month. With that extra incentive I went ahead and left my long time carrier and switched to Solavei on the T-Mobile network and I have no regrets. The service is great because it’s T-Mobile and the bill is less than what I was previously paying at Verizon.

If you are interested in joining Solavei or just want to learn more this is how the cost of getting signed up breaks down. The plan cost 49.99 a month and you have to pay the first month of service up front. Then there is a 49.99 activation fee along with a 29.99 fee for the sim card. So that means to get started with Solavei it will only cost around 130 dollars not including taxes or if you purchase a phone from them. You will then be mailed your sim card and then you’re good to go. One thing I really like is you can use any T-Mobile phone and even some ATT phones.

If you are interested in learning more just click any of the Solavei texts above and if you would like to sign up for the service you can use the referral name probbiethe1

New Method for Making Free Calls 8/12/12

Every sense I purchased my first Android phone I have been trying to push the limits of what it can do. One of my goals was to be able to make and receive free calls and texts from any Android device. A little over two years ago I was able to reach this goal with the help of Gizmo5 and Sipdroid and a lot of thanks to others that created the tutorials I followed. But shortly after my excitement left and sadness crept in as I read Gizmo5 was closing shop and the other famous one Sipgate wasn't excepting new applicants.

I decided instead of giving up I was going to stretch my skills and try to figure out a method to make and receive calls and texts myself. After a lot of trial and errors and a lot of late nights I figured out a method that would work for anyone and everyone and not just those that were lucky enough to have gotten into Sipgate before it stopped accepting applicants. The process was quite a few steps and used several different services but it worked and to my credit it still works today, two years later.

In the last two years though there has been a lot of advancement in the realm of Voip service. One of the greatest and my favorite is GrooveIp. It is an all in one app that takes care of all the hassle for you ( I like to think they got their idea from me). The only thing you need is a Google Voice account and you can make and receive free calls all you want. The only issue for some now is successfully signing up for a Google Voice account because to sign up you already need a previous phone number. Well I am here to say that I haven’t given up on my love and desire for free calls and text and that I have created a new method and the simplest method ever, to make and receive free calls.

You can find the instructions for this in my Written Tutorials section. And if for some reason the new method doesn’t work, you can always use my original method that still works.

Thoughts about the Adam Sandler Movie Click 8/5/12

My wife and I have been watching the original Goosebumps and came a cross one that made me start thinking about the 2006 Adam Sandler movie Click. If you have never seen that movie, it is about a man who purchases a universal remote that can control everything in his life and eventually takes over his life. You can read more about it at it's IMDB page HERE.

The Goosebumps episode that got me thinking about the movie Click was an episode by the same name. There was a Goosebumps episode that aired in 1997 title Click. The episode is about a kid who loves purchasing things from catalogs. One day he purchases a universal remote that turns out can control everything in his life and it eventually traps him inside it. You can read more about it at its IMDB page HERE.

Once I made the connection my mind immediately thought, "I wonder if Adam Sandler got his idea from Goosebumps". I have searched high and low and couldn't find an answer to my thought. I did read that the movie was formed from a joke by writer Steve Koren. If any of you have any more information on this comparison please contact me through my contact page.

Happy Fourth of July 7/4/12

Nature Wallpapers for Nooks 6/28/12

I was browsing the web trying to find a pack of wallpapers that fit Nook Colors and Nook Tablets, I was disappointed that I really couldn't find any. I did find a set of 3 created by psybah over at XDA. Thanks to psybah for inspiring me I decided to create my own wallpaper packs for Nooks.

To start off my wallpaper packs I offer my Nature Wallpapers for free to be downloaded by anyone. I don’t take any credit for these images all I did was resize them to fit Nook Colors and Nook Tablets better. The original images can be found at droidwallpapers.com. This is just one of many sets to come so continue to look back for future sets and feel free to browse my site for other cools things.

To download just click the link below. The folder will need to be unzipped.

Invite from YouTube to monetize my videos! 3/10/12

A few months ago I received an email from YouTube asking me if I wanted to monetize my videos! I was excited they contacted me but did not know exactly what it meant. So I signed up for revenue sharing and left it at that. Finally I had some time to submit videos and I am now happy and proud to say some of my videos on YouTube are making me money! It is really all thanks to one video, my "how to sideload apps video" which has seen a lot of views.

1/29/12

This news is a little late but just around Christmas time my Dancing Baby Live wallpaper Free version surpassed half a million downloads!

My Son 12/20/11

I am so super happy right now, my gorgeous wife brought a handsome little man into the world and he goes by Theron. Theron is our first baby and there is no greater feeling then hearing your little one cry for the first time. I probably won’t be posting anything new for the next month or until things settle down and get figured out. So I hope all of you have a great Christmas and remember what the holiday is truly about, the birth of Christ and a chance to spend it with the greatest gifts ever, our families.

Christmas Keyboard Live 12/18/11

I just uploaded my Christmas keyboard to My Market. It is free and ready to be downloaded so go grab it and have a very merry Christmas.

Oops! 12/10/11

It has been awhile sense I last posted something on my website and I even forgot Thanksgiving, Oops. I do hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and ate a lot, I know I did. I have added a few things to my site, the biggest new thing is the chat box, feel free to use it for your personal use or when you see me on there say hi. I have also started coaching high school basketball and it is amazing, I thought coaching was my dream job and now I know it is! My baby boy is due sometime this month and I am totally stoked, I am also a little nervous but he will be a little stud and a genius.

Now that I am caught up I am working on a couple of things for everyone. I will be releasing a Christmas keyboard that will be free and I am still working on finalizing My ABC's computer program, it should be out early next year. One more thing that I think everyone should be excited about is the new how to video I will be uploading in the near future so keep an eye out for that.

Happy Halloween 10/30/11

I want to say Happy Halloween to everyone. Halloween is a fantastic holiday because you can eat as much candy as you want and no one can say anything about it! Also once Halloween is over all of that candy is on sale for crazy low prices! So I hope all of you have a great Halloween and don’t do anything to crazy.

To celebrate Halloween I created a Halloween themed HTC keyboard and it’s free. If you would like to rock it you can download it HERE or you can find it in My Market section.

My First Google Chrome Theme

I decided to try something new this week so I created a Google Chrome theme. My theme is an Amp Energy them, I took the idea of my panda91 home Amp theme and tweaked it to be on Chrome. It is a pretty simple theme but it is the only pure Amp Energy theme in the Chrome web store.

If you would like to try it out you can install it at the Chrome Web Store

If you would like to try and create your own them you can at Chrome Theme Creator

Things I'm Working On 9/19/11

I am currently working on a computer program, hopefully for both PC's and Mac's. It is an alphabet program for kids that will not help them learn their ABC's but also help them learn how to use a keyboard and mouse. The program has some pretty sweet illustrations thanks to my wife ( A.Robbie ) and each letter/image will be verbally described to the children.
I have been beta testing it with kindergarten and first graders at the local Boys and Girls club and the improvement the kids are showing is amazing. I am planning on selling the final version for 2 dollars but until then you can check out the DEMO

After I get my alphabet computer program finished I am planning on porting it over to a simple Android app. Other than that the only other things I have planned is redoing my website.

Remembering 9-11-01

Ten years ago today the world changed, the people of U.S.A came together with great pride. I remember exactly where I was when I first heard of the attacks. I actually was watching the news and saw the second plane fly into the tower live. I wasn’t sure what was going happening, I thought it was a trailer for a movie or something. I went to school that day and just sat there silent through all of my classes watching the news with all of the teachers and my fellow students. It was one of the most memorable days of my life and not for a good reason.

Those that were lost on 9-11-01 will never be forgotten.

New Game Scattergories Timer-Die

Scattergories timer and letter die. It will give you a 3 minute countdown and gives you an audible alarm at 2 and 1 minutes and 30 seconds and then alarms you when time is up. Rolling the die will give you a random letter. You can find this in my computer game section.

I combined two of my Android apps to create this program.

New Video Tutorial

I added another video tutorial to my site. The tutorial is actually an old one but it is new to the site. The tutorial will teach you how to side load apps to your Android device. That’s all it is, if you would like to view it you can in me video tutorial section.

A.Robbies Boot Animation

This is a simple boot animation that I made for my wife. She has been asking me for a while to make a boot animation of the girl android. I haven't gotten around to it but I made this pink one to hold her over for a little bit. I can't remember who did the original one but thanks to whomever it was. I hope you all enjoy it as much as my wife has.

If you would like to download this boot animation you can HERE

Smack Obama For Computers

I have ported my Smack Obama app to the computer, thanks to Spider at androidtablets.net for the idea. Smack Obama is my twist on the traditional whack a mole game. All you have to do is see how many times you can Smack Obama right in the face. I created this game just for fun, so please do not let your feelings get hurt by fun.

I also offer this game on the Android market both a free version and a full/donate version. The full version has some extra features like an extra 30 seconds, user name, and score comparison. You can find the apps in the Android market or click on my apps link.

I need some assistance

I am trying to get a hold of someone affiliated with Kage Games LLC. Here is a link to their site Kage Games.

I am trying to get a hold of them because I need some help on an app and I think they have the programming skills I need. Thanks for your help.

It’s Been Awhile

It has been a long time sense I have updated my website, and I apologize for that. But I have been pretty busy.
Here are some notables to get caught up
The winner of the tablet giveaway was techfun58, so congrats to techfun58
I have built a few more apps, 1 - Amp Energy Clock and 2 - Amp Energy Theme for Panda91 home

Happy Easter

Happy Easter from P.Robbie Products. I hope you all have a great holiday and remember the importance of this holiday.

New Apps!

I have been working hard on a few new apps that I am pretty excited about and I have finished a few of them.

The first one is titled "Flippin Coin" it’s a simple app that simulates a coin flip but if you press the upper left corner it will always flip heads and if you press the top right it will always flip tails. So with this app you will never lose a coin flip again. This one is free!

The second one is "Night at the Roxbury Sounds" I made it because Night at the Roxbury is one of my favorite movies and there wasn't anything in the market for Night at the Roxbury, but now there is! :) The app is just a soundboard of a few sounds from the movie. This one is free!

The third and last one is an app of my Dancing Baby Live Wallpaper but it’s an app. I made it because so many people had no idea how to work my live wallpaper so for them I turned it into an app. The cool thing about my Dancing Baby App is you can select any song from your sdcard to have the baby dance too. This one is .99 cents

All of my apps including these new ones can be found in my apps section.
More apps coming soon.

Pirates Dice For Computers

My latest computer game is PC Pirates Dice. I turned my Pirates Dice Android app into a computer game so people without Android devices would be able to participate has well. I used a new program this time called Scratch (it can be found here) it is a pretty cool program and fairly easy to use, but it does take a while to get used to.

If you would like to play it you can in my computer games section.

Game Maker Video Tutorial Coming Soon

I had a poll up on this site for a couple of weeks, asking all of you if you would like to see me do a video, written, or no tutorial on how to use Game Maker to make computer games. Well the polls are in and the votes show a huge win for a video tutorial on how to use Game Maker. So there will be a video tutorial up shortly. Please be patient and keep coming back to see if it is up.

A Few More Apps

I have been hard at work building some new apps that I am pretty excited about. The first one goes along with Scattergories timer, It is Scattergories Die, it is an app that rolls a random letter for you each time. So now with Scattergories Timer and Die apps and the word document there is no real reason to own the actual game. My next app is Pirates Dice (both free and full versions). Pirates Dice also known as liars dice or bluff dice was made famous when Will Turner played Davie Jones for is father’s freedom in Pirates of the Caribbean. You can find all of my apps on my apps page.

If you are interested in learning how to play Pirates Dice you can find the rules and a played game example HERE

Scattergories

One of my favorite games is Scattergories, mostly just because you don’t have to know how to spell you just have to know what letter the word starts with. The other night I was playing it and the battery in the timer was bad but thankfully I have an Android phone which has an app for almost anything, so the night wasn't ruined. After that I decided to make a dedicated Scattergories timer app, and now it is completed. You can find it in the market or on my apps page or HERE is the direct link.

I also decided to upload the rules and everything else that you will need to play Scattergories. You can find the word document HERE . I want to say thanks to NWT literacy Council for putting the document together.
