EA’s POGO arrives for Android with four awesome free games [Doesn't support many devices from the looks of it]
Earlier in the week, EA Games brought a familiar face from the online gaming community to our beloved Android operating system. In case you missed the news, POGO Games is now available for free on Google Play. Unfortunately, it’s incompatible with all 5 (yes five) of my Android devices, so I haven’t been able to test this one out just yet — this is your cue to get on the ball, EA.
Anyhoo, here’s all the juicy 411 for your reading pleasure:
April 10, 2012 – EA Mobile announces that Pogo, its popular online gaming destination, will offer fans their daily ‘five minutes of fun’ fix on Android devices for the first time ever with a free Pogo Games Android app.
