  • Limbo is great, I’ve heard.

    • Martin Lane

      Limbo is a very frustrating game, but thankfully it’s nothing to do with the controls which are done really well , one of the better Android ports.

  • Marty

    I was considering buying Smart Weather Wallpaper til I read some of the user reviews. Thankful for user views.

    • Derek Johnson

      I’m the developer of Smart Weather Wallpaper. Thanks for taking the time to check out the app. It’s worth noting earlier this week we released a MASSIVE update which dramatically increased both our weather accuracy (by relying on hyper-local weather forecasts from Forecast.io), as well as now have a selection of hundreds of hand picked images. Give us a shot, and of course if you don’t like it, the Play Store allows you to return. We don’t think you will want to.

      • Marty

        A trial version would be helpful. ;)

        The GP refund feature doesn’t allow much time to get to experience an app well enough.

  • EdPC

    3D Photo Viewer (http://goo.gl/38dpD5) deserves a mention

    • torque

      No it does not

      • Angel

        Yes it does, because I could not found any other app that let you view and enjoy photos the way 3D Photo Viewer does

  • Limbo is great! The price of 4.99$ may scare some people, but from personal opinion it is a dam worthy buy!

    I’ll also leave this here, for people who want a simple time killer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.joaosimoes.colorfulreaction
