Back in its heyday, Xmarks was something of a revelation, providing web users with the incredibly useful ability to synchronize bookmarks between computers. The tool started life as a browser addon called Foxmarks, but soon developed into a utility that encompassed other browsers as well. The later ability to sync passwords was something that was also welcomed all round.

However, it was not long before this form of data synchronization became a standard feature of browsers such as Firefox and Chrome. After being purchased by LastPass, Xmarks lived on as a browser extension as well as a tool for various mobile platforms, including Android. Here, we will take a look at what Xmarks for Premium Customer has to offer.

The dream-like quality and relaxing pace to Sleepwalker’s Journey seems a big departure from the usual fare of developer 11 bit studios, who previously made tower-defense hit Anomaly Warzone Earth and upbeat arcade-action game Funky Smugglers, but you wouldn’t think so from playing it — it’s every bit as polished and enjoyable as something you’d expect from an expert puzzle-platform game developer.

Sleepwalker’s Journey is about a sleepwalking boy called Moonboy and his adventures through his dreams. As his guardian, you manipulate objects in the dream to ensure he returns safely to his bed. It’s a charming, beautiful, purple-infused journey, well worth your time and attention.

Fighting games in the Google Play Store are a dime a dozen. However, I only ever come across a few that really impress and captivate me for hours. For a game to achieve this, it needs to have a good balance between the difficulty and the excitement of each level. Luckily, when I was downloading fun games to play over the holidays I came across Tank Hero.

Tank Hero is a free Android game that allows you to play as a tank, destroying everything that approaches. This simple and addicting premise kept me entertained for hours, and I decided to share my experience with you.

The Android operating system is scattered with news apps. There seems to be hundreds to choose from and most times, we don’t really know which one is the best for our needs. Last month at Android.Appstorm, we looked at the 40 Best News Apps For Tablets and covered a wide range of news genres. Today, we’ll be looking at News, a holo-designed client for Google News.

News will definitely catch your eye. Whether because of its desirable features or its appealing UI, it has the potential to become the only news apps you’ll ever need again.

As a frequent shopper, I often find myself buying more than what I really need — and spending more than I intended. That led me to look for an app that does the math as I do my purchases so I can stick to a strict budget and, at the same time, stop guessing how much I need to pay at the checkout counter.

Let It Shop proved to be just the app I was looking for. Below, I will show you how it stands out from all other shopping list apps I’ve tried so far.

Funky Smugglers is a highly original and brilliantly fun arcade-style game where you have to remove contraband items from boarding passengers… all to a funk-infused soundtrack. The game includes a solo mode, but also an online collaborative mode where your score contributes towards a team total. The graphics are sublime, the music is brilliant — everyone needs more funk in their lives! — and the gameplay is simple yet challenging. Following is a closer and detailed look.

It’s Holidays Week here at Android.Appstorm! We will dedicate our time this week to bring you the best apps for the year-end festivities. From gift shopping to games, cooking and hosting, managing your to-dos, decorating your phone, it will all be about spreading the cheer and reducing the stress of the Holidays season.

One of the reasons I was really excited about purchasing a Google Nexus 7 was that I’d finally be able to carry a ready reckoner of recipes and cooking videos right into the kitchen to follow along — you know, just to make it look like there’s a method to the madness. But sometimes, I don’t even know what to cook or how to achieve certain results, and that’s where an app like BBC Good Food – Recipes comes in handy.

Culled from the eponymous British magazine, this is a beautiful collection of recipes, cooking tips and tools that are infinitely helpful for both experienced and amateur home cooks. Every recipe is clearly detailed and accompanied by a beautiful photograph, and the app includes a few extra features that make it a must-have in your culinary arsenal. Plus, it’s loaded with a ton of recipes that are perfect for this holiday season.

Originally an iOS app, Snapseed garnered quite a following for its powerful photo editing capabilities and also won a few “App of the Year” awards from Apple. In September 2012, Google bought Nik Software, the developer company behind the app and a mere three months later, we have an Android version of the app available to us for free. On a side note, Google also made the iOS version of the app free along with the Android release.

But before I delve into this review, let me get one obvious explanation out of the way – Snapseed is not an Instagram competitor from Google. Instagram, if you didn’t know, is a photo sharing app that lets you apply color effects to your photos and share them directly from your mobile devices. It thrives on its social sharing and community feature, while Snapseed does not have any social features of its own. It is also a more extensive photo editing app than a way to apply readymade filters to your photos.

So with that out of the way, let’s dig into what this latest offering from Google that everyone is talking about really is.

Did you ever wonder what you’d get if you crossed penguins with Qix, casual gaming, and a touch screen? Yeah, pretty left-field, huh? But that’s exactly what Hyperkani made with Slice Ice, a popular game about slicing ice into different shapes to provide the penguin king with cold refreshments. It’s fun, wacky, sometimes frustrating, and even with several niggling problems, it’s hard to say no to those adorable penguins.
