    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    This is starting to get boring. Apple are sore losers.


    From what I have heard 4.1 is supposed to be a lot faster than 2.3 and 4.0.

    Geeezzeeee. -_______-

    Completely ridiculous.

    Seems Apple's afraid of Android...

    Sounds like the usual "they took our ideas, not fair!"

    Imo if you make at least 30% changes to an existing patent you can technically still develop the new patent.

    Apple, welcome to the REAL world.

    Lol @Neon. xD

    Apple always blows things out of proportion. However, I do agree, this is uncalled for and unnecessary. It is only making them look worse, I believe..

    Google's Nexus seems to be rather stunning, but I have always detested Samsung with the raging passion of seven suns. :3 So, I don't care much xD

    @Gabby I just like the name of the phone. "Jelly Bean". :D And "nexus". :)

    But honestly actions have consequences. Apple's actions will have consequences that would eventually affect themselves.

    @Neon Yep, I believe Apple will also reap their karma in due time.

    And Jelly Bean is an ADORABLE name :3

    Is it all about the voice search? What does Apple have patented?

    Yup, and now we know why Google is trying to tackle Apple's marketshare on smart phones - in regards to the browser. And plus, they're both billion-dollar companies, so this could go on for a while.

    That's the thing, Apple and Google are major competitors in the phone market and Apple is just being a bitch about the situation. They should welcome competition instead of trying to block it because in the end - if one grows more - it brings more people to the market.

    It's like Apple doesn't want to give anyone else any chances of success. At least that's how I view it.

    I see it that way too... And if Apple is truly confident they wouldn't worry about Google taking their sales. :)

    True that, they're obviously not too confident about their product if they keep going after the smaller guys. Apple's marketshare is very huge compared to the others. I don't see Mcdonalds trying to shut down Burger King or anything like that - they're both in the same field. And you don't see Neopets going after other pet sites - so its just wrong.

    It just looks bad on their part and definitely alienates people from supporting Apple and their products. :|

    Yup, I'm surprised bloggers haven't wrote about this. It's like Apple is creating a monopoly in the smart-phone business. It they figure people are copying their product, then they should lease out the patents.

    I hope so, Apple needs a taste of their own medicine.

    Happy Google will win this, sad Samsung is involved with that. -_- I hate Samsung with a passion.

    I like Apple more than Samsung.. But this is ridiculous.
