The new Twitter Lite came out a few days ago as a new web client for the popular social network designed to consume less data than the standard version when used on mobile devices. The sole problem with it is that doesn’t send push notifications in real time unless you leave your browser running in the background. Still, there are lots of ways to take advantage of this new service, including turning it into an independent app.
The gameplay in your average clicker appears to be loved and hated in equal measure. The extreme simplicity that’s the standard of tons of games in this genre spells absolute boredom for some people and extreme addiction for others. Love it or hate it, though, you’ll probably still have fun playing a bit of Demon Princess Marie, a new clicker where you face hordes upon hordes of enemies and enjoy some more-than-noteworthy graphics.
Learning languages is one of those permanent New Year’s Resolutions that often falls to the wayside due to lack of free time. Plus it can get monotonous to grind away at vocab and verb conjugations all on your lonesome. Luckily, though, there are apps like Lingbe to help you learn and brush up on your foreign language skills anytime, anywhere by talking on the phone.
We’ve seen all sorts of settings and fantasy worlds in the various titles that populate our Android gaming catalogue: modern warfare, distant futures, alternative realities… We could spend all day listing the subworlds we’ve explored in this genre, but we’d hazard a guess that not one is more popular than the medieval fantasy setting. Swords, dragons, and all the fantasy tropes that come with the package are ubiquitous. But there’s always room for surprise, and that’s just what we’ve found in Siege of Thrones, which is openly based – with a slight gleam of parody – on one of the most popular shows now playing on TV: Game of Thrones.
The cool thing about live videocasting apps like Periscope is that they offer what’s generally very free and improvised content in real time. These live videos are often unrepeatable and often I’m left kicking myself afterward for not saving them. Now that’s both possible and easy thanks to Snagscope, a free Android tool to download all the live videocasts you fancy.
Thinking about Final Fantasy sends us straight into a multiverse of fantasy, steampunk, and impossible hairdos where you have to become the heroes of the day and save the world, no matter which of the many installments in the RPG saga you’re playing. Hence why it’s a bit surprising to find a game like Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire, a strategy title where you have to manage your own kingdom.
Games based on the world of medicine have usually taken Theme Hospital as their point of reference, but with a humorous approach. The tension – and gravitas – popularized by shows like ER, Grey’s Anatomy, etc., only made it to the gaming world when the Trauma Center saga appeared on Nintendo DS. That concept based on doing operations under the pressure of a countdown now comes to Android with Operate Now: Hospital, a free smartphone game that you’ve definitely gotta check out.
Saving battery is a primary concern for basically anybody who’s got a smartphone – which is why it’s useful to have Android apps whose mission is to help you do just that. It might sound a bit obsessive, but we’ve got to use everything Android’s got to cut down on battery consumption. And there’s nothing better than this pair of apps that do this by reducing battery drain by automatically deactivating your WiFi.
We continue to be pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the titles in – of all things – the train genre on Android. We’ve talked before about several of these games, but discovering a new gem is always worth mentioning. Today our find is Train Conductor World, a free Android game that really puts your reflexes to the test.
With the 1,001 customization options we tend to find in most launchers, coming across one that swaps all that for a laser-focus on productivity isn’t that common. Luckily, KISS Launcher is the solution for people who put performance first and are at their happiest with minimalism.
