I’m usually a sloppy Christmas shopper. I wait until the last few days to get any presents, mostly because I never know what to gift anyone. This year however marked a huge improvement as I had my Christmas shopping done by the 5th of December.

If you’re not as lucky and you still have some gift shopping left for your friends, family members, partners, and you know them to be Android fans, I have compiled this list of great last-minute gift ideas. As a big Android fan, I guarantee I’d be happy with any item mentioned below.

It’s the last month of the year and the time when companies refrain from pushing new products or ideas to avoid being neglected in the midst of the holiday rush. But over on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, entrepreneurs are fearless and confident, launching new projects and hoping to get your attention with their innovative products.

In the following post, I will take a look at the most original projects that you can pledge for this month, then list others that are also worth looking at. Read on to discover them all, and keep in mind that, as with any crowd-funded project, you have to exercise your better judgement and no outcome is really guaranteed.

It’s almost Christmas time and as you prepare for the holiday shopping spree and start feeling the giving spirit of the holidays, it might be a good idea to help crowd-fund some cool projects and offer a contribution for gadget enthusiasts like yourself who have original ideas and want to turn them into real products.

Fall is here and we’re starting the countdown of the year’s last quarter towards 2014. As time flies by, it brings with it more interesting crowd-funded projects from Indiegogo and Kickstarter.

It’s a new month, the back-to-school time for many students of all ages, and another exciting time for Android enthusiasts. Over the past few weeks, several interesting crowd-funded projects have popped up on Indiegogo and Kickstarter and it’s time we took a look at the most interesting ones that you can pledge for.

As with last month, we will pick the most exciting ideas first, then a list of other ones that are worth looking at. Read on to discover them all, and keep in mind that, as with any crowd-funded project, you have to exercise your better judgement and no outcome is really guaranteed.

We’re continuing with our tradition of showcasing crowd-funded projects that could be interesting to your as an Android enthusiast. Featuring new and exciting ideas at the beginning of each month, we help you sift through the hundreds of projects filling Kickstarter and Indiegogo to find the rare gems that are worth contributing to.

This month, however, is quite special since there are so many already funded and quite original projects. That’s why I will pick 5 projects to discuss, then link to several others that are worth considering as well. Read on to discover them all.

Over the past couple of years, I somehow went from not using almost any accessory with my devices to owning and using a lot of them daily. I had always been fascinated by accessories, from cases to cradles to extended batteries, but I always owned a less popular mobile phone that made it almost impossible to find dedicated gadgetry. However, the rise in many universally-compatible accessories changed all of that.

Whether you’re an accessory veteran, or you’re looking for suggestions to improve your experience on Android, check out my list below for the tried-and-true gadgets that I use regularly and love.

Last month, I started a new tradition on Android.Appstorm by featuring 6 crowd-funded projects that might be of interest to Android users (many of which are still available now, so do check them out). This tradition will involve featuring new and exciting projects at the beginning of each month to help you sift through the hundreds of ideas filling Kickstarter and Indiegogo and find the rare gems that are worth contributing to.

Although I was at first very reticent to invest any money in crowd-funded projects, because nothing is guaranteed and the products weren’t already available and proven, my recent experience with them has been quite positive. I’ve received my 13000mAh Limeade battery and my Minuum keyboard invite on time, and I am enjoying both without any letdowns. That’s to say that crowd-funding does work when you exercise your better judgement to pick projects that are well thought-out and made by gadget enthusiasts like us, who just need a little help to push mobile and technology further.

As a reader of Android.Appstorm, you have probably noticed that we don’t really cover a lot of hardware-related news, however we know that you’re all likely as enthusiastic as us about getting the most from your devices, whether it’s through apps or accessories. So, as I was wandering through Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the two well-known crowd-funding communities, I found a few really interesting and useful projects that I appreciated and/or pledged for and thought it would be cool to share them with you. After all, crowd-funding relies on us, as users, to vote with our wallet for the projects that we’d like to see developed further. Join me after the break for the full list.

From universal remote controls and dogfighting helicopters, to gadgetry like car key finders, your Android’s screen is a blank canvas – a metaphor for how it makes an awesome control panel for, well, everything!

All the toys and gadgetry in this list ship with accompanying Android apps which part the veil on a future where “there’s an app for that” will be a valid response to every question. Self-driving car dashboards, energy saving home controls, playing laser tag, and even a quick diagnosis of your allergies will be possible with one device.

The modern smartphone is barely half a decade old with an even younger app ecosystem. Projects like the Kickstarter-funded Laser Tag gun and mainstream approaches from automakers like Viper with their smartphone car remote offer a glimpse into the future of appified everything.
