Android Gamers, how did you find touch arcade?

I'm surprised to see a good number of Android users on these forums. I'm wondering how you got here?

How did everyone else end up here?

I had an iPhone 4, and iPod Touch before that. I got hooked on the podcast (and subsequently the site). When I moved to android, I found that enough of the games talked about here would eventually end up on Android. So much so that this site is still in my daily rotation (and I never miss a podcast).

Yeah I have the same story as you really. I loved the coverage and podcast. Had an ipod touch. Now I have a GS3 and TA still brings me gems like backflip madness.

Exact same story here. I had a 4S and found the site (and subsequently the podcast). Then I bought a Galaxy Note 2 and was sad to see this site go. I still listen to the podcast every week and try to check the site (for my ipad) every now and again. Now I think I'll frequent this site more if they've got some android chatter!

I have an iPod touch, nexus 7 and an HTC one x! The best of both worlds!

Only, my 4th gen iPod touch is starting to falter on some games.. Debating if I should get the 5th gen iPod or an iPhone 5?!?

Iphone 5, believe me. The ipod touch 5 will go out of support with a few years. It has half the ram of an iphone 5. Also no siri.

My story is a bit different. I started off on Android back in 2009, when the Android Market was truly a gaming wasteland. If I saw a game that looked interesting I'd type in "Game + review" in Google and more often than not, the TouchArcade review would pop up first. I lurked on this site for years because so few of the games reviewed here actually made their way to Android. By early 2012, the tide turned and more of these awesome iOS games started coming to Android. At that point I felt comfortable registering with the TA forums because I could contribute to the discussion. Finally!

Now I use an iPad 3/Nexus 4 combo (best of both worlds!) so I comment here more frequently. Basically, TouchArcade is the best forum on the internet to discuss mobile gaming.

I have been an Apple user for quite some time now, and recently got myself an android phone. I am really impressed with it, and it gets apps from Google Play and all that.

I found TouchArcade in Facebook I believe. People were talking about it and I got an account on the forums.

I find it heartening to see people embrace using both ecosystems (android and iOS). There is a lot to love on both, and in the end we are all gamers who just want to play great mobile games.

I've been on TA since I got my iPod 4G but due to school needs and cause my dad has his old kindle around I switched to Android to get access to my books. I'm glad though that you guys opened an Android sub forum here in TA.
