Suggested March 2024 Apps Of The Week: Disneyland, Pac

It is the weekend again. But, not everyone will have the joy of sitting on the porch with friends, cracking a cold one and a joke as the hours slowly tick by. Some of us will be pulling weeds in the hot sun, or driving hundreds of miles to visit family, or even working.

No matter what you are doing this weekend, try to make time for relaxing. If you are looking for some new apps and games, check out our list below. You might find just what you need to make your weekend perfect.

If you are the type of gamer that, somewhere in your past (or possibly present), sat around a table with a group of friends and played such games as Dungeons and Dragons, this is the kind of game you will enjoy. It harkens back to a real tabletop experience, complete with character sheets, maps, and more. There is even a simulated set of gamer’s dice for you to roll. As you explore a handcrafted dungeon, you will find loot cards that can give you special items, stronger armor, and even better weapons. Using your newly collected swag, you will be ready to fight off the strange beings you will encounter when entering an unknown room. This game is available for $3.99.

I’ve been waiting a long time for this app to return to the App Store. There has been an official Disney World app for a while now, but the West Coast theme park hasn’t had one in years. With this official app, users can log into their Disney account to scan tickets or annual passes, check park hours and ride closures, and check current wait times for rides throughout the park. You can also find out where your favorite characters will be set up for meeting, search the map for restaurants, and even find out where the closest bathroom is. This app is available for free.

Just when you thought you knew everything about the pellet-munching half circle, a new game comes out that throws it all out of whack. In this endless arcade maze, players control Pac-Man as he chomps though neon mazes that twist and turn. In addition to being chased by ghosts, you are followed by the ever-present, infamous 256 Glitch as it tries to tear your coding apart. There are also special power ups (beyond the power pellets that let you eat ghosts) like bombs, lasers, and stealth mode. While the basic rules of Pac-Man still apply, this is one arcade classic that will really push your limits. This game is available for free.

Maybe you are the type of person that just can’t stand classic games like Pac-Man getting a lot of changes. Instead of trying to convince yourself that the game is terrible, even though you haven’t played it, try a whole new game that has a pellet-munching traveler that eats his way through mazes. In this game, players are constantly being chased by a red foe. However, the only way to get him off your back is to switch the bridge at just the right moment, so he is stuck on the other side of the maze. Hopefully, it will be a side you’ve already gobbled all of the pellets on. This game is available for free.

LinkedIn Lookup

Having hundreds of work related contacts for LinkedIn doesn’t really do you any good if it takes forever to find them. With this new contacts app from the official business-networking site, you can get the information you need about the people that will be in your next meeting. You can also look up contacts by skill, title, and more. Of course, the app makes it possible for you to call, text, or email your contacts with one tap. This app is available for free.

Spiral Ride

If you loved Impossible Road and just can’t get enough of the bang-your-head-against-a-wall action, then you might want to take a moment to absorb this game. You don’t tilt to stay on track. However, you must tap the screen whenever the arrows approach in order to switch lanes and avoid being thrown off into the abyss. Along the way, you will collect cubes that add to your score. Don’t be mistaken. It is not going to be easy. You’ve been warned. This game is available for free.

Apps Of The Week: Godus, Zombie High Dive, Alter, And Moreā€¦

This has been another great week for apps and games. We got to have some fun with great ports of some of our favorite games and find out about new apps that make our lives a lot better. There were also quite a few fantastic updates that really made our preexisting apps take on a whole new life.

Whether you are hoping to play god, want a little culture, or have a hankering to explore the deep ocean, we have a list of apps and games for you to check out this weekend…

This fun “God game” has been keeping me busy for hours. Players build a society and then help its people grow into fully civilized beings. Your job, as god of this world, is to sculpt the land so that your little dudes can move around, build houses, and plow fields. You can drag the land outward to create more places for them to explore, or dig away at the layers in order to reveal flat lands for building. The more you do for them, the more they believe in you. Belief is like money in this place. You need it to perform those miracles they love so much. This game is available for free.

Zombie High Dive

Get ready for some serious high-dive action as you flip, pike, and soar from great heights as a brain dead athlete. Players aim their zombies and jump from all manner of platforms into all manner of pools. Aim the correct trajectory in order to make it into the liquid without losing a limb. Tap the “spin” button to perform tricks that will earn you extra points. If you do it right, you’ll earn a high score. If you don’t, well… you might lose your head. This game is available for free.

82nd & Fifth from the Met

The 82nd & Fifth project was started by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Throughout 2013, the Met invited 100 museum curators to talk about 100 works of art. This app features all 100 of those two-minute talks. The video includes dozens of photographs of the subject matter, overlaid with audio from the curator speaking about his or her impression of the work of art. You can learn more in 200 minutes from this app than you could learn from a lifetime of visiting museums around the world. You can also explore a photographic rendering of the artwork, view a linear, chronological outline of the selected piece, and see a spatial geographical outline of works of art selected for this series. This app is available for free.

Crash and Burn Racing

Racing games are so boring, right? You know what can make them fun? Weapons. Explosions. Maniacs. This game features all of that, and more. Players get behind the wheel of the craziest car they can find and outfit it with the most powerful weapons they can get. Then, take to the streets for an all-out assault on the other drivers. Sure, some unsuspecting spectators might get splattered by a car bomb, but they shouldn’t have been out on the street, anyway. You can upgrade your car with faster wheels and better handling, purchase bigger and badder weapons, and even get a custom paint job that reflects your personality. This game is available for free.

Time Tangle – Adventure Time

I’ve said it before: I love Adventure Time. Any time a game comes out starring my favorite heroes, I’m down for the count. In this game, players get to punch stuff. Yeah. Battle bad guys like Lemongrab, Maja the Sky Witch, Giant Goo Skulls, and more. Rescue Jake and Finn’s friends with the help of Lady Rainicorn, LSP, and more. Run and punch is the name of this game. Grab coins and sandwiches as you run through mathematical obstacle courses while holding terrified residents of the Land of Ooo. Yes, those voices are from the actual voice actors for Jake and Finn. This game is available for $2.99.

Alter

When you are in a hurry, why should you waste time actually typing a to-do list? Instead let this app create a list for you from your messages and emails. If your wife asks you to pick up some cat food on the way home from work, you can copy and paste the text and it will automatically populate a list for you. You can start the list from a specific point in the conversation, and add the info to a list that you can check off as you go along. If you need to remember to get a card for your anniversary, as well as make reservations and pick up your dry cleaning, you won’t have to worry about accidentally forgetting to put an item on your list. This app is available for $0.99.

5 Android Apps You Shouldn’T Miss This Week

Apple TV Plus is rolling out to Google Chromecasts with Google TV. Google made the announcement this last week. Additionally, support is rolling out to Android TVs with Google TV support as well. There isn’t much else to say about it. You should be able to watch Apple TV Plus stuff on Chromecast now.

The Google Play Store now lets you share apps with other people. It uses Android’s Nearby Share feature. You simply send a copy of the APK to another device. There are some limitations, though. You can’t send some apps (such as the Stadia app) and you also can’t send premium apps for obvious reasons. Hit the link to learn how to do it.

Google Pay and Samsung Pay are adding more support for cryptocurrency in the near future. The service BitPay announced upcoming support for both tap-to-pay apps and you can pay for goods with your Bitcoin with it. BitPay also supports Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum as well as a few others. Look for the roll out within the next month or so. Coinbase already lets you use cryptocurrency, but it’s nice to see more options.

Google Maps received an update this week. It now lets you pay for parking and transit rides within the app. You don’t even need to touch the meter when you use it. Maps teamed up with Passport and ParkMobile to make it possible. You’ll even see a timer in Google Maps to see how much time you have remaining on your parking meter. It should officially rollout in the coming weeks. Hit the link for more details.

LastPass put an awful restriction on its free tier this week. Now, users have to choose between only mobile or only desktop for its free tier where the old version let you use both. This made a lot of people angry and we’re working on a list of alternatives for people who want to jump ship. Hit the link for more details.

New apps and games this week:

Pirates of Freeport

Pirates of Freeport is a roguelike game with RPG elements. Players create a team, explore various dungeons, and upgrade their characters as they progress. The game is difficult and encourages players to have a varied team of fighters with varied stats. It is predominately text driven so you won’t get any rich graphics or anything like that. Your goal is simply to build the best team possible and survive. There are a few bugs here and there, but otherwise this should turn out to be a fun game in the genre.

Word Clock Watch Face

Word Clock Watch Face is a Wear OS watch face. It creates a word clock on your home screen. The clock is simple overall. It has a bunch of words on it and it lights up the ones that correspond with the current time. It works in English, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish. You can also customize the colors, see a battery indicator, and a minute dot feature to see more granular time. It’s a neat and cheap little watch face that worked fine in our testing.

Joe Hindy / Android Authority

Sudoku Plus

Sudoku Plus is a new Sudoku app. It joins a very crowded market with a ton of great Sudoku apps, but it should compete well. The game includes multiple difficulty levels, a relatively simple UI, daily challenges, and performance tracking with statistics. It uses a 9×9 grid with only one solution per puzzle so more or less a classic Sudoku experience. Finally, there is also a mode where you can play with shapes instead of numbers. The premium version is relatively inexpensive and it should be a good new entrant for puzzle fans.

App Picks Of The Week: Ustream For Ipad, Tumblita, Taskrabbit

Every week iDownloadblog brings a roundup of awesome apps for you to check out and enjoy. We try to vary our picks, but a lot of these apps usually come from the App Store. If an interesting web or jailbreak app catches our eye, we’ll include that in our picks, too.

This week, we’ve got three App Store apps that all serve very different purposes. Here’s this week’s picks!

Ustream for iPad

Ustream has finally updated its iPhone-only app to also support for the iPad. With Ustream on the iPad, you can watch and follow your favorite channels, as well as broadcast straight from the iPad itself! If you’re looking for a free, online streaming solution on the iPad, Ustream’s universal app may be just what you need.

The app also supports AirPlay and social network integration for sharing your activity. Ustream on the iPad is a nice experience, and we recommend downloading the app for the free in the App Store.

Tumblita

If you use the blogging/social network site Tumblr, then you may be familiar with its official iPhone app. There’s a new Tumblr app for the iPhone and iPad on the block, and she’s called Tumblita.

While most will probably prefer Tumblr’s own app for the iPhone, Tumblita on the iPad is really nice app for Tumblr users. Previously, you’d have to check Tumblr’s web interface on the iPad to see your feed and post content, but Tumblita lets you do all that inside a full-featured iPad app.  Some of Tumblita’s perks include support for multiple accounts, excellent customization for posting content from the iPad, support for services like Instapaper, and a streamlined viewing window for your Tumblr feed.

Tumblita has a lot of really cool features and an interesting look, but I have a feeling that some may not like the way you have to browse through content from other blogs. You’ll just have to download Tumblita yourself and be the judge. It’s available as a universal app for $2.99 in the App Store.

Task Rabbit

Task Rabbit is definitely one of the more creative productivity apps we’ve encountered in the App Store. The idea of Task Rabbit is that other people do your chores for you. The app ties into a collaborative service that allows you to post a task you don’t really want to do (ex: go to the grocery), along with how much you’re willing to pay to get it done. Ideally, other users will then respond and complete that task for you.

We’re a little skeptical of Task Rabbit, but the idea sounds awesome. Instead of having to take out the trash yourself, why not have someone do it for you for $5? People looking for a job are called “Rabbits,” and task categories include Cleaning, Donations, Shopping, Food Delivery, Cleaning, Donations, Delivery and Something Else.

Be cautious if you decide to give this app a try. You never know what kind of “Rabbit” you could get to do your chores for you. Task Rabbit is available for free in the App Store.

That’s it for this week’s picks! Let us know what you think of these apps. Better yet, what cool apps have you downloaded recently?

The Best Galaxy Watch Apps Of 2023

Most smart watches run WatchOS (for Apple Watches) or Android Wear. Samsung, despite being one of the biggest names in Android smartphones, has chosen to endow their line of watches with Tizen, the same operating system that runs Samsung smart TVs. 

This means that, unless a developer decides to port their app, you won’t find every great Android Wear app in the Galaxy Store. However, there’s actually no shortage of amazing and useful applications to download to your Galaxy Watch. Here are some of the best Galaxy Watch apps as of 2023.

Table of Contents

1. Facer Companion for Samsung Smartwatches

Samsung has a decent native watch face store with many free and paid choices to adorn your wrist. However, Facer Studio and its community of creators have made some of the best smartwatch faces we’ve ever seen.

The companion app grants access to these faces on Tizen Galaxy devices, although you can also install Facer watch faces as standalone apps as well.

2. Spotify

Everyone’s favorite music streaming app is available on virtually every platform and that includes Tizen watches from Samsung. The main function of the Spotify watch app is to act as a remote for the playback device you’re currently using. In most cases, that means the audio will be streaming from your phone. 

If you have a cellular watch with a SIM and have a premium subscription, you can stream music directly without a phone. You can also save music to the watch’s internal storage for offline play, as another premium subscriber feature.

3. Find My Phone

Since your Galaxy Watch is literally attached to your body and your phone isn’t, it makes sense to have an app that lets you locate your phone if you’ve accidentally let it slip down the back of the couch. This in-house Samsung application is still the best, most streamlined way to make your phone ring when you don’t know where it is. 

Sadly, the “Locate Phone” service ended on March 15 2023, but we could still make our phone ring while within Bluetooth range, so it’s still very much an essential Galaxy Watch app to have.

4. Samsung SmartThings

If you own a bunch of Samsung smart appliances or any other devices that are compatible with the company’s SmartThings home automation platform, then you definitely want to have the SmartThings app on your Galaxy Watch. 

You can add your favorite selection of devices from those that have been set up in the SmartThings Android app on your phone. Once that’s done, it’s easy to control said devices right from your wrist. This is 100% the most Jetsons-like app on Galaxy smart watches!

5. Strava

One of the main reasons people buy smartwatches is to use them as fitness trackers. So as you’d expect Samsung ships their product with plenty of fitness-related functions. In general it works well out of the box, but some particularly active folks may feel the need for something more. 

That’s where Strava comes in. It offers more comprehensive fitness tracking than the default Samsung software and crucially offers detailed statistics and route tracking. This lets you plot your performance improvements over time, making it a great app for serious athletes. The core functionality of the app is free, but you may want to check out some of the benefits a paid subscription will bring you.

6. Wrist Flashlight

Just in case you didn’t know, there’s a built-in flashlight function in Galaxy Watches, or at least there is in the Galaxy Active 2 we have at hand. All you have to do is swipe down for the shortcut menu and tap the flashlight icon. It’s a perfectly adequate application, but Wrist Flashlight adds a new twist. Literally. 

Apart from offering a choice of different colors, you can also adjust the brightness by turning the physical bezel on Galaxy watches that have them. If you’re using a Galaxy Active mode, you can tap on-screen buttons.

7. Here WeGo

Most smartwatches these days have GPS units in them, but strangely there aren’t many great navigation apps for them. Here WeGo lets you download maps of your region to the smartphone, so you’ll never be lost, even if you don’t have your phone with you or an internet connection.

8. Samsung Calculator

This is another free Samsung app that’s so useful it really should be on every watch out of the box. Just as the name suggests, this Galaxy Watch app lets you calculate things.

Very useful if you’re in no shape to calculate a tip or quickly need to double check your mental calculations without pulling out your phone. While using a small watch screen to tap out numbers and functions isn’t ideal, this app makes it as easy as possible.

9. Triggers (IFTTT – Standalone) ($1.99)

If you use IFTTT to control home automation devices or trigger sequences of events in cyberspace, then wouldn’t it be convenient to have access to those functions directly from your smartwatch? Triggers offers just that and it’s most powerful when used on a smartwatch with cellular capability. Although it will work via your phone if you don’t have that type of watch. 

There’s more than one IFTTT app on the Galaxy Watch store, but Triggers has an excellent tutorial video and great reviews. It is a paid app, but the asking price is very reasonable considering the virtually limitless power of IFTTT.

10. Wrist Camera ($1.99)

Our smartphones have such powerful cameras built in these days that it’s hard to imagine needing anything more. However, it can still be awkward to use a phone camera in some instances. Wrist Camera is a widely-celebrated Galaxy Watch app that lets you use your smartwatch as a remote control for your smartphone camera. 

Having a remote trigger for both video and photographs opens up all sorts of possibilities and it’s the perfect companion for a tripod with a phone mount.

11. Voice Recorder

This is the last Samsung-made application on the list, but it’s not less useful or essential than the ones we’ve already mentioned. Voice Recorder does exactly what the name suggests. Simply open the app and start recording voice memos. 

It’s easy to find the recordings on your Android device later and it even supports speech-to-text functionality, so you don’t need to painstakingly transcribe things later.

12. Yandex Translate

While we don’t yet have the universal translator from Star Trek, modern live translation software is already way better than carrying around a phrasebook. 

Yandex Translate supports 85 languages at the time of writing and if you have a watch with an independent internet connection, you don’t even need a phone to use it. Now it should be much easier to find directions to the nearest restaurant or pharmacy. Probably in that order if your stomach doesn’t agree with the local cuisine,

There Really Is a Galaxy Watch App for That
