Intel’s new Dev Story/ HACK THE CODE – a tool for devs to work their magic

Intel’s new Dev Story/ HACK THE CODE is a new game that surprisingly has little to do with coding, except for devs. The game is constructed in such a manner that it will attract very few people except for .hack fans. Inside the little game you will find some interesting mini games though, games similar to WarioWare’s style of mini challenges that prove that their devs are the best in the world at what they do.

The game itself is open source and free to use, which means Intel is inviting developers to improve their work and build upon the game’s existing foundation. Intel really wants people to tinker and provide resources to help them improve their code and the best submissions will even be included in the second version of the Dev Story.

You can submit your creation at Intel Developer Zone and give the game a try as well by clicking the widget below.

Wearable Widgets update – make your favorite apps watch face for your smartwatch

The newest Wearable Widgets update brings with it some neat new options at a few expenses as well. After the first Wear devices became available to the audience, the app got an update which includes setting widgets as your watch face at all times in addition to mirroring widgets from the phone.

The Wearable Widgets is using a workaround as it does not have an official API, which means some elements of the widgets can be in the way of their proper functionality. After the user selects the Wearable Widgets app he will have to select it from the watch face list and he can set his desired widget as said face. The app works pretty well but the downfall is that the battery gets drained much faster because it refreshes the widget once every minute by using the Bluetooth connection with the phone.

Wearable Widgets is free on Google Playstore but purchasing more apps compatible with it may cost you a few $$$.
