Everyone wants the best apps these days, so I thought I would share with you all what’s worth downloading and what needs to be ditched. It’s the one stop shop for all your app reviews.
Lets start with a classic – Duck hunt, free android app
The game is filled with so many memories. Thankfully this version seems to work very well. Instead of an old NES gun you do have to use your thumbs to shoot the birds, but the graphics are good as is the gameplay.
Please note this is an unofficial adaptation of the game, so it may disappear at any time, but for now it is worth a download.
Angry birds Rio, free app
The most exciting of avian adventures continues!
What happens when everybody’s favourite fierce fowl get caged and shipped to Rio? They get very angry!
In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio de Janeiro, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique.
This is my personal favourite twitter/social media tool and perfect for all you twitters and microbloggers. With the announcement of Twitter Inc. purchasing tweetdeck, some of us fans hope twitter does not change it.
It’s easy to set up multiple Twitter accounts and then organise those accounts into three columns for friends, mentions, and direct messages.
You can access the latest tweet from your followees and the latest activity surrounding the account, in an easy to use interface. It has links to Bit.ly to create those Twitter-friendly short links, and webpages are even viewable within the site.
This is a pretty awesome app if I do say so myself, though some of you Shazaam fans might differ as Shazaam being the most recognisable force in the Android market when it comes to apps.
With this app you can speak a song to SoundHound, even hum a song or just type the lyrics into the app’s search box and it will tell you the song you are thinking of! Come on how awesome is that??
Adobe Photoshop Express, free app
This powerful and rather popular image-editing programme can seriously perk up even the worst photos, giving oomph to the most lacklustre of images.
Adobe Photoshop Express for Android is a free app that can mask the inadequacies of a phone’s camera in an, er, flash. It’s a barebones version of Photoshop but that’s not a bad thing. There’s a whole host of tools available within the app. Those included are the most essential for image saving, like cropping and auto correcting, one-touch picture enhancing and the ability to add some pretty decent filters, like sepia and black and white.
You can also upload the images to the Cloud to Photoshop.com, once you open up a free account with them. And the decent thing about the app is that it works with pretty much all flavours of Android.
