Easter Eggs, in case you didn’t already know, is a term for undocumented, hidden features in software applications. Kinda like a geek signature with a flourish, which in some cases may never even be revealed. Android devices have Easter Eggs tucked away, in the case of Android 5 – codename Lollipop – it’s a remake of the insanely-popular Flappy Birds game. No matter what version of ‘Droid you’re running, you can access the Easter Egg in the same manner. Here’s how: Go to Settings, scroll to the bottom of the list. Push About Device, you’ll see this screen: Okay, Android Version – push on that several times quickly in succession. The screen converts to this one – The system confirms it is in fact Lollipop. (or Kit Kat or Ice Cream Sandwich or whatever your Android version is) Now tap the lollipop – there’s all the different coloured lollipops for ya. Whatever, moving on. This time, long push on the lollipop – Did you ever play Flappy Bird? Here’s the ‘Droid clone – a nice little Easter Egg that the developers tucked away for inquisitive people like you (who read sites like this) to find.

PS: As an extra Easter egg bonus, once you’ve run the hidden game, go check your Daydream options (that’s the screensaver-like function under Display) – now you have an extra choice available there.
