Doctor ScreamZ on my microphone-less Kindle Fire - crashes when I tap REC

Date: 1/11/2015

Doctor ScreamZ (version 1.6) on my first generation, microphone less Kindle Fire

Description:

Usually (nearly always) when I attempt to download an app that focuses on the recording on audio on my microphone-less Kindle Fire, i'm given an error message that tells me that my particular Kindle Fire isn't compatible with the app i'm trying to download.

Even if I can download an app that features the recording of audio on my Kindle Fire, the apps I download usually don't crash if I attempt to record audio.

An app called Doctor ScreamZ does. Inside of Doctor ScreamZ there's an option to record audio. When I select this option the application crashes for me 100 percent.

After selecting the record option inside of Doctor ScreamZ, i'm presented with a message that says,

"The application Dr.ScreamZ (process com.scream.doctor) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Download Doctor ScreamZ
2.  Select "Skip" under Doctor Phil
3.  Press "REC"

Result:  Select the "REC" option inside of the Doctor ScreamZ app on my microphone-less Kindle Fire results in the app crashing

Expected:  No app should crash after selecting an audio option on my microphone-less Kindle Fire

Note: This is easier to show than to describe, so please see the attached screenshots.

Download Doctor ScreamZ

Press the "REC" button

Application crashes

Don't miss the balls game - easy way to get text overlaid

Date: 01/08/2015

Don't miss the balls game (version 1.04)

Description:

This isn't a very serious bug, but since I spent several minutes today looking at another problem with this game that was apparently immediately fixed after I provided feedback via the Google Play store, I didn't feel like I could just walk away and not right a bug!

There's an easy way to get main menu user interface text overlaid on top over other screens.

Very specifically, the main menu of Don't miss the balls has a "?" option that brings up a "Simple is not easy!" tutorial text.

If the user coordinates pressing the "?" and the "1 PLAYER" option at the same moment, a "Chose up to 2 items" menu option will appear overexposed over the "Simple is not easy!" tutorial text.

This is much easier to show than to describe, so please just take a look at the attached screenshots.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.  Download and launch the Don't miss the balls game
2.  From the main menu, press the "1 PLAYER" and "?" options simultaneously

Result:  Pressing the "1 PLAYER" and "?" options simultaneously at the main menu of Don't miss the balls results in the "Chose up to 2 items" text being overlaid over the "Simple is not easy !" text

Expected:  Pressing the "1 Player" and the "?" options at the same time should not result in overlaid text



Download and launch the Don't miss the balls game on a Kindle Fire.


The main menu has a "1 PLAYER" and a "?" option.


Press the "1 PLAYER" and the "?" options at the same time.

The "Chose up to 2 items" text is overlaid over the "Simple is not easy !" text.
