Words On Tour
Zynga, the developers behind Words with Friends, have created a new word game, Words On Tour. It is fairly simple word game, but centered around levels that take you to around the world to various cities. You can play with friends, offline or online (its said that we even have to clarify that anymore). It has 4.2 stars and over 500,000 installs. It is free with in-app purchases, check it out with the widget below.
One of the coolest features that came with Android Lollipop is the ability to pin apps so that someone borrowing your phone will only use the apps you have pinned. App Lock by AJK takes this idea to a whole other level by giving some customization and more control over this feature. You can use a password, pattern, or even a fake app crash to block certain apps. Its got tons of other features on top of all of that.
The popular video games Witcher now has a mobile game, The Witcher Battle Arena. This is a MOBA game where two teams face off against each other in an arena. Characters you choose have various abilities that can get better as the game advances. What is cool about this game is they say you can unlock everything in the game by playing the game, but if you choose to get things sooner you can purchase it. However, theoretically you can unlock everything in the game by just playing through it. It looks like it has great graphics as well.
Fans of Frogger and Minecraft will be happy to know that the new game Crossy Road is Frogger with Minecraft-like graphics, but rather than a frog you play a variety of other characters. There’s not much else to it other than that. You can collect characters, play 50 levels, and it is completely free to play. It does have over 5,000,000 downloads and 4.7 stars, so it should be a great play.
Knights Of The Old Republic was a very popular video game when it came out back in 2003. With today’s smartphones, their processing power can handle older video games. That is what this is, the old video game available for your smartphone. It is the full game, so they even mention in the description that it will be a big download. This has all the features of the game: choose your adventure, build your character, learn 40 force powers, build a lightsaber, and more. Because it is the full game, it does cost $9.99. If you are pining for this game though, this is a great way to have it with you everywhere.
There are lots of app discovery apps out there, but this one supplements the finding of apps with discounts, ranging from 15% to 100%. What’s cool is if the app features an app that has a premium and a lite version, it will unlock all of the premium features. And, if you later decide to get rid of this app, the features and apps you get from the app stay with you for life.
This was an app initially on iOS, and was in high-demand enough that they released it on Android. What is cool about this app is it is health focused, so has healthy meals and even health tips. It even will help you gather a shopping list. The only thing with this is app is it costs $4.99. If you’re willing to spend that (which we support paying for apps) then try it out.
If you’re looking to build your own coffee shop, then this game is for you. This allows you to design and build your own restaurant, and then serve customers. You even create your own menu, and decorate everything. You can even invite friends to build a shop next to you and share recipes. It currently has 4.2 stars and over 100,000 downloads.
WWE Immortals brings your favorite WWE stars and brings them into a game. You can have powers, level up, play others online, and more. It has good graphics, and evidently great game play based on the 4.3 star rating and over 500,000 downloads. Otherwise, this is a cool looking fighting game with WWE stars.
Cops N Robbers is a popular mini game that is now in a game to download for your phone. It has comfortable touch controls, good graphics (in a purposefully pixelated look way), and even multiplayer. You can either play a Cop or Robber, and depending on your role will depend on your goal in the game. It is currently $0.99, download it with the widget below.
