Christmas morning is here and we all feel the same excitement while rushing to check the gifts under the tree. As geeks and technology addicts, we’re hoping for gadgets and more gadgets, especially the Android kind. We’re not picky either, we’ll take anything from a phone to a tablet, an NVIDIA Shield, or an Android TV Stick.

If you’re lucky enough to be a recipient of such gear, you’re certainly excited to set it up and load it with excellent apps and games. Or maybe, this is your first foray into the Android ecosystem and you have no idea how and where to get started. That’s why we’ve combed through the hundreds of posts we published this year to roundup the best content for you.

From apps to games, how-tos, and opinions, you’ll find enough articles here to last you weeks. So get your browser tabs ready for an onslaught of articles, press that power button on your shiny new gadget and follow us down this wonderfully geeky journey. But keep in mind that we are not responsible for the amount of time you spend glued to your screen and away from your family today!

Given the name of our site, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to assume that we are big Android app addicts, would it? As such, we spend most of our day searching the Play Store and other app recommendation sites like Playboard, trying new apps and writing about them. However, with over one million apps available for Android, and developers getting better at designing beautiful apps and tailoring them for phones and tablets, it has become almost impossible to keep up with the flood of great content.

That’s where Drippler steps in, curating news — and more specifically app and game news — from various sites like ours to help you stay updated on the latest and greatest software to hit the Android platform. But does it live up to its promise?

Struggling to find somewhere good to eat? When you’re in a new city, perhaps on holiday or a business trip, or if you just want to try to find somewhere new in your neighbourhood, it makes sense to take advantage of recommendations rather than just try some place at random.

There are a few websites that can be used to check restaurant reviews and ratings but when you’re out and about, a dedicated app can prove more useful. Zagat is a free app from Google that enables you to discover the perfect place to eat as well as give you the chance to share your thoughts and experiences with others.

It’s Christmas morning today which means that a lot of you have woken up to some awesome gifts under the tree. If you’ve been good throughout the year, we hope you got some nice Android gear to finish 2012 and start 2013 in style. Whether it’s a new phone or tablet, or maybe even an Android TV stick — I bought one but it hasn’t been delivered yet! — you’re most likely looking at your new gadget and wondering where to start and how to get its true potential.

That’s why we decided to give you an easy-to-check summary of our best articles of 2012. So grab your shiny new gadget and follow us down this wonderfully geeky journey. A fair warning though: you might end up neglecting the family time and drowning in a sea of apps and games!

As a foodie, I was really excited by the idea of Foodspotting: take a photo of your meal whenever you’re out to dinner, and share it with the world; then, browse photos of dishes other people have tagged to see what looks good around you. There are plenty of websites and apps that aggregate reviews of restaurants’ decor, service, atmosphere, and general food quality, and mini-reviews of the menu items themselves should complement this nicely.

Unfortunately, the Android app has a few flaws that keep it from living up to its potential. Read on to find out what they are, and whether that’s a big deal.
