Got any good apps or games recently then post them in here.
Plants vs Zombies 2.
These are the most played games on my Adnroid devices:
250+ Solitaire Collection
The last two helped me get through many 12 hour night shifts.
Been a while since I used Android but Juice Defender was an outstanding app.
Heard good things about it, but couldn't get it to run on my phone due to root iirc. Used battery defender instead which worked good. I'm off to try Juice now you reminded me of its existence.
Most of my games come from the Android Humble Bundles, current time burner is Bloons TD 5.
Osmos HD is a great relaxing game.
Solar 2 is a great game but you'll need a high end device to play it.
AndroZip is a great app "#1 ZIP application and first Android archiver is with you since beginning of 2009. AndroZip File Manager helps you copy, delete, move, unzip/unpack, compress, encrypted ZIP supported, search, and organize your files, music, pictures, and folders just like you would do on your PC. Frequently updated with new and useful features."
Minuum is a great little keyboard if you type.
Afterfocus is a great photo editing app that makes photos look great - The free version is great but I went Pro to show support.
Papercamera is great for taking fun photos.
Adownloader for torrents - although google has killed this app by killing its awesome integrated torrent search which was amazing. but its still a good torrent app.
BeyondPOD - because i'm a podcast junkie - tried a few others and most others get recommended more, but personally I think this is way better. ANY PODCAST APP RECOMMENDATIONS APPRECIATED - willing to pay.
Dolphin Browser is the best mobile browser on the market - get the mini version if you have an old or underpowered device.
Sky Map - because I am a massive skygazing nerd - great for teaching kids.
Wifi Analyzer - great for setting up your wifi.
Always worked fine on my rooted phones. I think it actually offers extra features if your device is rooted. But like I say, that was a while ago.
And skymap is absolutely awesome!
I used that on my S2, but never got around to sticking it on my Nexus 4 for some reason.
Have they turned it into pay 2 win? heard rumours of there being EA coins and microtransaction stuff?
The Simpsons Tapped Out rules my life on a daily basis.
you can pay to win immy or just play alot and get it over time
alot of games seem to come with micro transactions these days thou wll be interesting to see how new eu laws change that slightly
Clash of Clans
Android (Just released on this format) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.supercell.clashofclans&hl=en
iOS - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/clash-of-clans/id529479190
Play this every day... no idea why, I just seem to enjoy it
Just bought Light Flow for custom led notifications on my Nexus 5.
I tried it on my Nexus 4 but couldn't get to grips with it.
Came across Running Frenzy today. An insane little game which takes ages to get used to.
I used to use WhatsApp for messaging people with no/low text bundle and sending pictures to friends and family. You may have heard Facebook purchased it, which for me is a no-no. I was also getting annoyed with its performance of late with messages taking hours to arrive some times, even the next day on occasion. So with the Zuckerberg forcing my hand I made a list of alternatives and tried the most recommended, Telegram.
Well it's a great app - layout is almost identical to WhatsApp. Messages are instant to a few seconds, I did most of the testing on the day their european servers were straining under the 1.8m signups. They had 5m signups yesterday. They also do end to end encryption and self destruct messages. It's got an open source base but their encryption is closed source (according to them it may/will become open source at a later date). Pictures are compressed - but are fine for what I need. If you need to send a picture without losing quality you can send it as a file. Oh and it is totally free too.
Does anyone use Threema?
Have been using Voxer for the last week after hearing about it. It was reported as a walkie talkie like app, which is only true if you pay $2.99/month or $29.99/year but if you just use the free portion its more of a voice messenger. After initially thinking it was a bit rubbish (probably just because I was offended by the high subscription price), the free portion voice messages have proved to be surprisingly popular as they are quicker to compose than text and messages seem to be funnier when they are spoken.
Can anyone recommend a good app for saving and protecting passwords. (HTC)
i keep forgetting the odd one when used infrequently and end up with my card locked again. lol
I use Lastpass, great app that also has a Windows desktop app to allow you to automatically enter passwords to your programs. it has recently been updated to allow auto entry into mobile applications as well which is very useful. I couldn't speak highly enough of the program.
Worth mentioning that it synchronises passwords accross browsers and devices and has a large selection of 2-factor authentication to keep your passwords safe.
Separate names with a comma.
