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.

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.

There are many Twitter applications on the Play Store, from the official Twitter application, to Plume, Tweetdeck or Seesmic. All of these have their own style and functionality. In Tweetdeck, you can customize the font and the number of columns in the application as well as connect to other services like Facebook and Foursquare. Seesmic has a similar feature set but uses a different UI style. Plume follows a Holo-like look and offers an impressive — and slightly daunting — amount of features.

The only major downside in most of these applications is that they lack UI color customization. Tweedle is a Twitter application that tries to close this gap with full UI theming freedom. However, it’s still in development and major updates are slightly sparse as the developer considers this his side-project.

The internet was supposed to be a democratizing medium, providing the same level of access to information to everyone no matter where they are in the world. But regionalization has gradually crept in over the years and you’ve undoubtedly stumbled across content you’re not able to access simply because of the country you live in.

If you think this is unfair, there are various steps you can take to re-route your internet connection to make it appear as though you are located somewhere else, but for many people the majority of solutions are just too complicated to be of practical use – this is not the case with TunnelBear VPN.
