Peggle!

Peggle is now out on Android! I've managed to download it - apparently it only requires Android 1.5 and up so in theory it should work on the Archos 5. The only problem is that the install size seems pretty massive as I keep getting a message saying there's not enough room on my Archos when I try to...

Re: Problem with Angry Birds

Are you guys using the 2nd beta version? I used to have exactly the same problem as described with the 1st beta version but the 2nd beta works great. Just be sure to put it in fullscreen mode. Good luck!

Re: Angry Birds Android Beta

The latest version is working great on my Archos. Stupid question though - how do you exit it without shutting down? The only way I've found is deliverately crashing it by clicking one of the web links!

Anyone else tried it? My Archos isn't on the newest firmware but the one before.

Re: Battery endurance 160G versus 32G (Flash version)

Hi giolubia I have a 16gb flash version and usually play my movies straight from the micro sd card. With varying resolutuons and codecs played I usually get comfortably 5-6 hours of video played before the battery dies. Seems to suggest the hard disk does have an impact. Hope this helps Cheers, Rich

Well in that case I guess my hardware is defective even though everything else seems to work!

Does this solve the problem for you? Mine has always done the same thing and just curious!

Re: How do you charge yours?

Thanks for all your tips. I'm going to charge mine while its off from now on and see if that helps. I've also ordered an Archos cable off Ebay for just over a fiver that plugs straight into the bottom 'dock' port to see if that improves my charging experience!

How do you charge yours?

Hi all, My archos is peeing me off a bit recently as even when I charge it (in standby) until the light blinks, it never seems to get to 100%. Last night it maxed out at 68%! Anyway, I'm kind of edging towards the 'Charge when fully off' method. Some people seem to have hinted that this might bust t...

Web Radio/Podcast Streaming problem

Hi there, I'm having a slight problem with my new Archos and was wondering if its just me or if its a known issue. I've had a good search on the forum but no joy of yet... Basically, you go to web radio then podcasts, pick your podcast and select the episode. It then gives you the option of playing ...

Re: Archos 5 Accessories Thread

Sorry to here about your fun with Windows 7 - sounds a right pain in the butt! On the strength of your review alone I've just ordered the ebay leather case. The ebay one looks slightly different to yours but its a UK seller which is good for me. Got to get something to keep my nice archos in as it s...

Re: List of .apk files that work - testing, screenshots/videos

argh i should've read this thread before posting my new one about the System Monitor. Does anyone know how to get rid of the things listed under Wake Lock and Alarms in the System Monitor? It's telling what's waking my device up and what's preventing it from sleeping, but it doesn't let me kill it....

What's the verict on the case - do you reckon its worth it? My only doubt is that the edges of the cover might get in the way of the screen a bit!
