Android App-aholics Anonymous (OnLive)

App Name: Onlive
Price: Free

There are plenty of games on Android, but most of them are the same old thing over and over again.  What if you could play high end computer games on your Android Tablet or Phone?  Onlive will help you with this.  Trust me.

Onlive is a service that has been around for a little while, but never really took hold.  I am making a mission of mine to help this service get the press it deserves.  Think of Onlive like a Netflix streaming for games.  One of the biggest problems with PC gaming is that the machines that you have to buy in order to make the games look good enough are extremely expensive and go out of date very quickly and have to be updated.  Onlive saves you the trouble of having a great PC and having to upgrade every time a new game comes out (as well as saving you from installing and troubleshooting) by doing all of the hard computer work for you.  Onlive’s servers crunch the numbers and work out the graphics and then stream them to your device (PC, MAC, Android, and soon IOS) like a high def movie, so there is no downloading or installing at all and on my 12Mbps connection I was playing Batman: Arkham City in 30 seconds with amazing graphics.  The account is free and most games have a 3o minute free trial, but you can also hop right in with 3 to 5 day rentals, unlimited play (buying the game and playing as long as you want), and PlayPacks which are a pack of 120+ games that you can play as much as you want for $9.99 a month.



Onlive also offers a console for your TV and a wireless universal controller that works with computers, the Onlive console, and portable devices alike in their online store.  Check it out and sign up for a free account at
