Navy Battle 3D: Classic Battleship game, minus the pen and paper

by: Alvin YbañezOctober 29, 2012

The Battleship game is a popular pencil-and-paper guessing game. It consists of two players, each one with her or his own paper game board.   The players arrange their ships, take turns in shooting the opponent’s ships until all opponent ships are destroyed.  The game was later on improved with pins, game board with holes, and real plastic battleships.  It’s a simple game, with simple rules, but with potential for hours of tactical fun.

The Google Play Store has an Android version inspired by the same game.  Developed by BitmapPiranha, the Navy Battle 3D game is a three-dimensional Battleship game for Android.

The game has 2 game modes: Solo [...]

G Cloud Backup: Easy cloud-based backup and restore

by: Alvin YbañezOctober 29, 2012

Cloud storage and cloud syncing seem to have crossed the border between fad and necessity.  With many people losing their mobile devices daily (1 every 3.5 seconds, according to sources), backing up files to cloud servers is one step towards preserving your precious phone data in the case of catastrophes.

If some misfortune befalls your Android phone — for example, if you lose your phone or someone steals it, if someone you know accidentally reformats your phone, and other similar unfortunate events — you will not need to worry much if you’ve synced your files with G Cloud Backup.

Created by Genie9 Corporation, the G Cloud Backup app [...]

9 spooktacular Android apps for Halloween 2012

by: Carl ParkerOctober 27, 2012

Halloween is that one day in the whole year when people get to dress up in the skins of creepy crawlies and monsters that hide in dark places to haunt parties and peoples’ doorsteps for sweets. Halloween isn’t just about the costume, of course. It’s also about that distinct feeling that horror is in the air. With technology present in almost every aspect of our lives, is there still room for that feeling of being “not alone in a room”?

Mobile devices can still factor into Halloween, of course. There are apps on the Google Play Store that can help you creep up the mood, letting you share ghost stories with friends, and even do a bit of [...]

7 sizzling new Android apps of the week (October 26 issue)

by: Carl ParkerOctober 26, 2012

You just have to love app developers. They’re always hard at work breathing life to their ideas, getting them out of their heads, and onto our mobile devices.

Thanks to these little idea seeds, our lives are much easier. We don’t need to waste time waffling over getting this or that, or tossing and turning all night in bed, waiting for sleep to claim us. Apps also let us get ahead of our business competitors and keep us reminded of the things we need to do.

This week, we took a look at the menu in the Google Play Store kitchen and handpicked seven of the most interesting, most useful, or most promising new Android apps fresh out of the [...]

AutomateIt: Automating actions according to rules and triggers

by: Carl ParkerOctober 26, 2012

Most of us depend on our smartphones for many of our day-to-day activities. We depend on our smartphones to wake us up or remind us of our tasks. We set them to silent mode when in a meeting or watching a movie. When boarding an airplane, we change them to flight-mode as instructed. Our smartphones are like assistants in all that we do.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our smartphones could remind us, send messages, turn on/off, or even change profiles and settings automatically? Won’t it be nice to be able to program your phone to do something at a set time so you can go on with what you’re doing?

AutomateIt!, an app developed by SmarterApps Ltd, can [...]

ANTIBIOTIC HD: A bug-zapping game for Android

by: Alvin YbañezOctober 26, 2012

Believe it or not, I really don’t like bugs. Imaging the tingling sensation when they crawl on your leg. Bugs hovering in the air are just like aircraft, looking for targets to drop their bombs on. It doesn’t mean that I hate bugs. I just don’t want them near me. The devs at 6am3.com may feel the same way, as they created a game that lets you exterminate bugs in a fun and entertaining way. The Antibiotic HD game lets you kill bugs by linking and zapping them with lightning.

There are there 3 modes in the game: Fingers (arcade), Brain (riddles), and Dojo. The Dojo is like a training mode where you get you get to play the game endlessly and [...]

Talk2Phone Desktop SMS: SMS, call notifications, and more from phone to Google Talk

by: Carl ParkerOctober 25, 2012

Imagine waking up twenty minutes before your shift and rushing to work after chugging some milk and cereal. In your hurry you end up stuffing your things inside your bag before trying to catch the next trip to your workplace.

Unless you have your phone around your neck or if you’re someone tied to Facebook or Twitter, you won’t really remember checking your phone especially when you have three pages worth of e-mails to reply to. You’ll find out later that you’ve had around ten missed calls and twenty-five messages from your boss, colleagues, partner, mother, and your landlord.

All those messages may have saved you from booking a meeting [...]

Diskobolos: Survival game against bionic bugs

by: Carl ParkerOctober 25, 2012

Hello 80’s and 90’s kids! Let’s take a trip down to memory lane with an interestingly addictive game called Diskobolos, brought to us by Conquering Bytes. At first glance, you’d think that the game’s going to be like most of those shooting ping-pong type ones that loses its luster faster than you can finish your tea. Diskobolos is anything but that. It seems simple but is fairly challenging. The arena, bionic bugs, and level of difficulty change as you play longer.

Diskobolos is a survival game that would have made Charles Darwin proud. Instead of conquering levels, the aim of the game is to beat The List and make it to the top. [...]
