Fruit Ninja Android apps
Fruit Ninja

[Price: Free / $0.99 with in app purchases]
I know we’re bit late on this but Fruit Ninja got a huge update last week and we’re talking huge. The team at Halfbrick Studios rebuilt the game from the ground up to include more game play features, more characters, and more content. It keeps all the same things such as pricing and the core mechanics but there is a lot of new stuff there. If you haven’t checked it out in a while, now is a great time to get back into it.

Obscure Android apps

Obscure is a hybrid photo editing and messaging application that allows you to add a number of very unique filters. Some of the options include things like fire, a zipper, and blur.

Todoist: To-Do List, Task List

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Todoist received an update this last week that improves the Android part of their platform. There is a new Karma system that lets you measure your own productivity. The whole update is pretty much dedicated to integrating the new Karma system throughout the app. If you use Todoist you should already have the update and if you’re looking for a fun to-do list app, you should try this one. It’s pretty good.
