If Google Play is a supermarket, these guys are chefs. They wander the aisles of apps, carefully picking and choosing the best of the best. They usually install the apps they recommend, testing them one by one, including and reviewing only those that meet their standards. As a result, each of these editors has a loyal following on Playboard. This page is our way of saying thanks. You guys rock!
I've been a fan of video games for most of my life. I grew up on console gaming, but lately my love of games has shifted over to the mobile marketplace. One of my favorite things to do (though it can be frustrating at times) is searching the Google Play store hidden gems.
There are a lot of high quality games out there which are not given the attention they deserve, and I'm happy to have the PlayBoard service to display findings for other gamers out there.
Rita El Khoury is a pharmacist by profession, a geek by passion. She's the editor of Android.AppStorm, an advocate of Android tablets, a fan of custom ROMs and personalizing homescreens. In her free time, she harbors an unhealthy addiction to TV series.
Rita spends a lot of her free time trying out new Android apps and services, looking for innovative ways to customize all aspects of her Android experience, and unearthing the most amazing Android tablet apps. You can see the result of all of her hard work in her Playboard channels, which she keeps well organized and up to date.
The persona of T. Fergason was based on an alias chosen by Norm McDonald (playing Burt Reynolds) in an SNL (Saturday Night Live) skit of Celebrity Jeopardy from October 23rd, 1999.
I came to Playboard because I'm a fan of horror and dark fantasy games (among others), and was searching for a website or resource where I could see what the best Android apps were for my favorite genres. However, I discovered that aside from a few blog posts about specific games or apps, there were no resources that were updated regularly for fans of specific niche genres like horror.
I realized that if this resource was going to exist, someone was going to have to create it, and so I created my first channel, Fantasy and Horror, which was later split into two distinct fantasy and horror channels. They were shortly joined by other channels dedicated to niche genres that I felt weren't represented well elsewhere.

Android supporter & app enthusiast. Been backing the Android platform since Android was a baby cupcake (1.5) & have yet to regret my decision! Knowing what is good & what is great in terms of apps is second nature to me & I am proud to support all those developers who support Android as best I can. I feel my overall spend on Google Play can solidify that!
I'm a biologist from Austria. With the help of the right apps Android can both simplify and enrich your life. I love that essentially everything can be tweaked to your own needs, everyone can built his own beautiful Android experience.
My channels feature only apps which will improve your phone or tablet, I will especially promote great user interface design.
