Someday perhaps we will finally get a decent GMail app from Google. One which actually works smoothly and reliably, and doesn't look like it beings on Android.

Sadly that day has not arrived yet.

Is anyone still playing RR3 since GT 2 came out? I mean, GT Racing 2 has everything RR3 has only without the paywall timers.

When RR3 first came out, I played the crap out of that game. It is a very good driving game. I loved the interface and I had built up a good stable of cars. But, then they updated the game with the timers and all kinds of restrictions, and I just quit playing like that. I re-installed it again, but it is just too frustrating to play.

I remember when RR3 first introduced the Mountain Dew paint jobs for the one car, and I thought that this would be a great way to fund development. Every car could have a variety sponsored paint jobs, and they could charge the companies for the advertising. It would be a very natural way to fund the game, and advertisers would get decent metrics (how many people are racing with their paint jobs).

Used to play RR3, but deleted it long ago due to its freemium model. I play Asphalt 8 and 7 now mainly for racing games.
