Currently this game is available for Android devices of higher resolutions which makes it unplayable on devices like smartphones. I can’t install it on my Galaxy S II, though I have tested this on a Galaxy Tab, and it feels just awesome.
Smart Connect is an awesome app from Sony, which lets you control your device by managing what happens to your device when you connect something to your device. You can choose from a wide range of options to do when you connect a particular thing to your device.
For example, you can choose to automatically start playing music whenever you connect an earphone to your smartphone or tablet and next time whenever you will plug in your earphone, your device will start playing music automatically.
