    I am having problems registering for the forum from my phone and don’t have access to a pc. On the Getjar mobile site just enter ‘Contra 4 free’ into the search box and it comes rite up. The graphics and gameplay r the best I’ve ever seen for a non-android game.

      I found Contra 4 free but Avast says it’s infected too. 11 other virus scanners say it’s clean. I’m sending it to Avast as a suspected false positive. If and when they give it a clean bill of health I’ll post it

    I downloaded this PicoRSS app and it works perfectly on my Incognito. I can quickly zip through the news of the day and stay informed. Thanks Dennis 🙂

    Dennis, this has nothing to do with PicoRSS but I have no idea where to communicate with u on ur site. I found 2 good games on Getjar that run perfectly on the Innuendo. The first is a billiards game called “Addicted to pool”. Pretty decent with no key mapping issues. And the second was a real shocker- actual “Contra 4” by Konami and it’s the real Nintendo version that runs perfectly with awesome graphics. Sorry for the off-topic comment but everyone will enjoy these games.

      When I download Addicted to Pool to my PC, Avast anti-virus claims the file is infected. I think it’s a false positive but I’m not posting as I don’t want to take the chance that someone will see that warning and think I host infected files.

      I couldn’t find Contra 4 on GetJar. Do you have a link?

      The best place to post finds like these is in the BoostApps Forums’ CDMA Games and Apps That Work section.
