Thanks to Our Sponsors for Supporting TouchArcade: Player Auctions, Edgar Emoji, McPeppergames, Bitty Blip, and Appodeal

While we’re primarily supported by a mixture of Patreon, Twitch subscriptions and Amazon referrals these days, site sponsors go a long way in making up for the funding shortfalls of our Patreon never reaching its goal. To show our appreciation, we are now publishing these posts thanking our sponsors each week- Both to give them a little extra visibility and hopefully to get readers who love TouchArcade to give their games a look to similarly support their efforts in allowing us to continue to provide everyone with awesome third party mobile games editorial which the App Store ecosystem badly needs.

A new sponsor this week in the sidebar is Player Auctions, I’ve been using them for years to buy digital stuff in games like gold for World of Warcraft and similar. Well, they’ve branched out into accounts for mobile games and you can buy a top-tier Clash of Clans base. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with them.

Sponsoring the podcast this week is Edgar Emoji [Free], a platformer that takes a new spin on how you manage the precise controls for running and jumping but using motion controls instead of virtual ones. It’s totally free to check out, so be sure to give its control method a spin.

McPeppergames is running ads with us for Color Fence [Free] which is their newly released color fencing puzzle game. It’s totally free to play and has a bunch of different color themes you can unlock while solving puzzles. Check out the trailer above to see the game in action.

A new entry in our sidebar rotation is from Bitty Blip for Connectron [Free]. It’s a reflex-based retro-inspired arcade game of touching shapes and dragging lines to prevent orbs from exploding. There’s 21 levels in all with 10 geoshapes that must be completed on each, loads of in-game items, leaderboards, and tons more. Best of all, it’s free.

For developers out there, give Appodeal a look. They’ve been running ads in our sidebar for a really long time now, and what they provide is a platform for intelligently serving ads using one SDK which connects to over 35 different ad networks. While I’ve never used it myself, I’ve heard horror stories from developers on what a nightmare it can be juggling all the different ad networks to display ads in game. Appodeal simplifies all that, giving you more time to work on your game instead of figuring out how to implement one more ad network. Additionally, their service is totally free to use.

Thanks a ton to our sponsors this week, as well as all of our community members who continue to support us. Combined, you all allow us to keep doing what we’re doing. If there’s any developers, publishers, or folks from third party services that might appeal to iOS developers who are curious about sponsorship opportunities here at TouchArcade, reach out to our ad sales manager, Marianne, at ads@toucharcade.com. We have a lot of different options which can fit any budget.

Google serves ‘Android Burger’ for lunch in company cafeteria, stays true to its emoji and keeps the cheese below the patty

Last week, a tweet from a Danish media analyst contrasting Google and Apple’s hamburger emoji designs set the internet ablaze. Google’s take on the emoji, which places the cheese below the patty, drew the ire of many. Less than 12 hours later, Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded, reassuring everyone that the company would address the matter immediately. While the world waits to see whether Google changes (some would say, corrects) the architecture of its Android hamburger emoji, there is one update to share: Googlers were served “Android Burgers” on Friday – and, yes, the cheese was kept below the beef patty.
