    Easy A

    Mathematics is not a really easy subject either in college or in high school. The mere fact that we encounter numbers is kind of intimidating for some but there are also a number of people who enjoy problems that involve numbers.

    If you are not that confident when it comes to algebra, geometry, or calculus, Easy A will definitely be of help.

    Easy A helps you solve algebraic problems, the area or perimeter of a certain shape, or solve for derivatives. The app lets you key in the given variables or figures, and it solves for the answer. If you want to find out what the surface area or perimeter of a particular shape is, provide the figures and it does all the work for you.

    The app has an easy-to-use interface. It automatically makes the screen brighter once you launch the app, making sure that you will be able to see the figures right. Easy A can aid you in your assignments if nobody is around to assist you, but make sure you also learn while you use the app.

    Easy A doesn’t have obtrusive ads that may annoy you while you are solving. It also doesn’t push notifications on your notification bar.

Greedy Spiders 2 is the sequel to the first adventure where evil spiders try to eat the poor, helpless little bugs. The game’s goal is to help the bugs to avoid becoming the spiders’ dinner. You have to come up with good tactics to prevent the spiders from getting any closer to the bugs. You will play a very important role in helping the bugs claim freedom, and that is to cut parts of the web where the poor bugs are entangled in.

    Greedy Spiders 2 can be downloaded from the Google Play Store in exchange for a few bucks. The app also has a free version, but if you want to enjoy more features, the paid version is very much recommended.

      Disc defrag programs are a complete waste of time for flash memory. It only benefits drives with physical moving parts to save seek time which doesn’t exist on flash drives. Stupid app.

      • aaron disibio

        Read the app description

        Just a stupid name….

    • John

      Why is there a Disk Defragmenter listed here? Defragmenting solid state memory is completely unnecessary, and will actually do more harm than good.

      • aaron disibio

        That’s not actually what it does …….

    • tB

      ..and disk defragmenter isn’t even in the play store, Appbrain download only.

      SD Cards and other solid memory do not suffer performance issues from fragmentation. Only hard drives and any other spin based storage device will do because the read/write head has to do additional round trip to seek out the next bit of data or find a slot to write to.

    • balthuszar

      so there’s a knock off of temple run, a knock off of 100 floors, and a defragmenter…got it

      • MasterMuffin

        I was thinking the same: wtf android authority

      Disk Defragmenter.. hmm.. I thought fragmentation was impossible on solid state devices due to random access?

      • aaron disibio

        Its just a misleading name’ doesn’t actually defrag

      Android “authority”? More like Android moron. Half assed versions of good games and software that will potentially damage your Android device. Do proper research before writing an article.
