There’s been a rake of new apps hitting the market recently, but what are the coolest ones?
These are two of the coolest apps around at the moment; try them out and see if you agree.
Angry Birds – Space
You might have thought that Angry Birds was past its sell by date and that it was no longer cool, but just as its coolness seems to thaw a little, a brand new edition comes out that is even cooler than before. The latest version of Angry Birds is Angry Birds Space.
The pigs are now space pigs and a giant claw has captured the eggs. The birds end up in a wormhole (which is really cool if you think about it, in the real world it is usually the other way round – work it out) and drift off to a different region of the multiverse with 60 different levels. Some of these are free of gravity, which is a whole new challenge. With Angry Birds Space the guys at Rovio have produced another new hit and the super-cool app is available for all the usual platforms.
Companies are also creating their own apps so customers can view their products on the move. A recent app which has been created is the motors.co.uk app which provides a wide range of second hand cars for sale.
Draw Something is another app that has been around for some time but it is still quite cool and it is a winner of the 2012 Flurry App Spotlight Awards. It has been downloaded over 100 million times and there is a free version supported by ads and a much better pay for version that is ad free. The game resembles the drawing games that we used to play in primary school so it is not too challenging; however it really is a lot of fun.
It is a two player game. You draw a picture representing one of three words and the other player has to guess what it is you have drawn. If she gets it right she receives rewards which can be used to buy more colours for drawing and bombs. The player who is guessing sees more than the finished picture; she sees a complete replay of how the drawing was made including any hesitations and corrections. To help her guess she will receive a number of letters from the word and blank spaces which she must arrange and fill in.
