If you’ve always wanted to sync your Android phone to your Mac, chances are you haven’t done so until now. I can just imagine how tedious the process would be as compared to synching an iPhone to a Mac – thanks to iTunes. But recently, I’ve proven myself wrong. I found out that synching my Google Nexus One to my MacBook Pro can be easily done. Syncmate makes the syncing with your Mac easy. I wish I had found this app earlier.
Owing to its use of the United 3D Engine which was also the game engine used in Dungeon Defenders for Android and Infinity Blade for iPhone, I have high expectations for Stellar Escape. This is the first game developed by the Swedish company Orange Agenda. The game belongs to the running or dash game genre. The first game that will probably come into your mind when it comes to games of this type is Sonic Hedgehog. Well, yes it has some traces of the Sonic Hedgehog gameplay in it but it’s very minimal. Stellar Escape is a nice running game with great graphics, very responsive virtual action buttons and fun game play.
The SETI@home (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) project, developed by The Hathersage Group, and sponsored by Adobe Systems, has been using the computing power of the world’s PCs for a long time now for their project to find alien life. Now you can contribute the computing power of your Android phone to the project and help the SETI team with their quest. The app runs on Android 2.2 (or higher) and is coming to the Android first (take that iPhone fans).
Game Dev Story is a great game put out by Kairosoft Co Ltd. that puts you in charge of running your own Video Game company. You get to do a little bit of everything in this simulation game from hiring employees, producing the actual games and essentially running the business. The game has a great, retro 8-bit feel and is very easy to play. It’s actually extremely hard to stop playing once you start, and has a lot of depth along with some great features.
Chalk Ball is the first Android game released by a new group called “The Pill Tree.” It’s a fresh take on the always popular “bouncing game” genre with a few twists. You have to use your finger to draw a chalk line that gives your ball something to bounce off so it will not hit the ground. You need to hit other balls to build up your chalk meter so you can keep drawing fresh lines to keep the ball going. It’s a simple game that has lots of depth and loads of fun.
It seems that the trend among mobile games right now is the combination of the great features of two or more games. Meteor Brick Breaker which we reviewed recently combines a space shooter and brick breaking game and came out as a great and entertaining game. Now, we have Moblox – another nice game, this time combining the famous Angry Birds and another game which may not be as popular but still a great game – Drop Block.
If you haven’t noticed video stores seem to be going the way of the dinosaur. As the video stores fade away, more people are turning to kiosks like Redbox. As great as the kiosks are, there has always been one drawback which is driving down there only to find that they don’t have your movie. Well, Redbox has an app that will take care of those problems for you.
The famous online ticket website finally got an Android app, and it was worth the wait. If you’ve used StubHub before you won’t have any problem using this application. This program will you find tickets to Sporting Events, Concerts and Theater shows. It’s as simple as picking your location and searching for the event you want to attend.
Meteor Brick Breaker is a nice-looking Android game from Chilingo, one of the most popular game developers for both iPhone and Android. From its name alone, you can easily guess what this game is all about. Yes, it’s a combination of your popular brick game and space arkanoid with shoot’ em up elements. The result – a great shooter with more than a hundred levels of brick breaking madness.
You’ve all probably heard about extending your computer’s windows onto another display unit, right? This multi-display setup is usual done to run more apps and software for productivity’s sake. But what if it is about extending your main computer’s display onto a smaller screen display – such as on your Android phone? Sounds a little off balance, right? But hey, that’s what this new Android app called iDisplay lets you do.
One thing that really amazes in the past several months that I’ve been reviewing Android apps and games is the fact that I haven’t spend as much as I spent on iOS apps and games. Why is that so? Well, aside from the fact that paid Android apps and games are not readily available in my location (but I do have an access to them though via Market Enabler app for rooted Android phone), I found the Android Market pretty much saturated with good, free games that are worth reviewing. Such is the case of this game called – SideScroll.
