5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Android Apps Weekly

Angry Birds Action

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Angry Birds Action is the latest out of Rovio and this game isn’t like the standard Angry Birds games. It’s essentially a pinball game where you launch birds around a board to rack up points, collect valuable items, and save the eggs. It features characters from the Angry Birds movie and it’s likely that this was made as a promotional game since the movie comes out next month. It has an energy system, which sucks a lot, but otherwise it’s family friendly and free to download.

 

Weatherback Wallpaper

[Price: Free / $2.49]
This week’s episode of the Android Apps Weekly is sponsored by Weatherback Wallpaper. Most weather apps give you a live weather wallpaper that changes based on the conditions outside. Weatherback Wallpaper lets you choose your own wallpaper and simply applies the weather effects over it instead. The result is a far more customized experienced that fits your specific tastes and yes, the effects can be customized by you as well.
There are a variety of effects available and you can change them if you want something static instead of based on the weather outside. The free version comes with some stuff so you can check it out and the premium version comes with everything. For this week only, you can get the pro version for $1.75 which is a 30% discount. Give it a shot and show your support for the Android Apps Weekly show!

 

Super Phantom Cat

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Super Phantom Cat is a platformer that pays homage to the 8-bit and 16-bit platformers of old. It has a goofy storyline to help moves things along and you’ll be treated to a bunch of levels, unlockable characters, and some retro style graphics that are bright and colorful. The game does manage to invoke the same feelings that old platformers did, although it could be argued that it borrowed a little much from the mechanics. In any case, it’s free to play and it’s pretty fun.

 

Radon

[Price: Free]
Radon is a unique application that allows you to share links with just about anyone that’s close enough to you. The app takes advantage of the newer Nearby APIs and doesn’t require other people to be on the same WiFi network, Bluetooth connection, or even have NFC on for it to work. The idea is that you shoot a link out and anyone with the Radon app open can accept the link and open it. There are some early release bugs, but the app does work and it’s pretty nifty.

 

Orbit’s Odyssey

[Price: $2.99]
Orbit’s Odyssey is a unique little puzzle game where you must defeat replicating monsters, collect stars, and take advantage of the game mechanics to not be defeated. It uses mechanics that allow you to kind of orbit around planets to avoid being captured which was actually rather enjoyable. It also comes with five characters, 90 levels, 100 stars in each level, and some fun looking animation and graphics. It’s $2.99 with no in-app purchases if you’re interested.

 

Random Flix

[Price: Free]
Random Flix is a fun little application if you have Netflix and you’re really lazy. The basic premise is that you hit a button and the app will give you a TV show to watch on Netflix. This solves the old question of what to watch on TV. The app has access to every show on Netflix which also makes it a nice reference guide if you just want to look around. Think of it like the TV guide of Netflix. It’s also completely free which is nice
