Android Apps Roundup

Here’s a roundup of a few Android apps created by students in the last month. If you have an app which you want featured do let us know!

Cosmic Maneuver

cosmicmouneverThis visually stunning looking app requires you to move a cosmic ball around space and collect coins to accumulate points while avoiding a foray or asteroid from hitting you. You can also collect bombs which you can use to blast all the asteroids on the screen to give you some breathing space to collect those coins. There are several difficulty levels and the game has scored highly from reviews after its release.

You can get Cosmic Maneuver from the Google Play Store.

 

 

Gravity Force

gravityforceAnother space related game Gravity Force puts you in control of a ball for you to guide through rough obstacles. You do this by weaving through space and change gravity settings. Make sure you don’t go near those obstacles flying around in space or the black holes because it could be a disaster!

Have a look at Gravity Force from the Play Store here.

 

 

Weight Log

weightlogIf you go to the gym and lift weights you probably keep track of your exercises. There are some apps available for this but Weight Log no grills simple and easy to use app which will keep a list of all your exercises which is neatly categorised. You can enter your weights in either kg or lb and you’ll receive warnings if it’s been a while since you last increased the weight for an exercise to help encourage you to progress.

Weight Log is available from the Play Store.

 

White House Race 2016

whitehouserace2016With the US presidential elections fast approaching there’s a host of election related apps being released. White house race is a simple reaction game where you tap (or smack) on the faces of Donald Trump or Hilary clinton as they appear on screen.  You do this as quick as you can within a short time. There are two difficulty levels to this game. A very simple game which can help past the time.

You can get this app from here.

Android App Roundup

It has been a while since we featured an article of some of the app students of The Complete Android Developer Course have created so I thought it would be nice to feature a few published apps so people can see what other students have published. Unfortunately it’s not possible to feature every app from students so here are just a few.

Easy Graph

easygraphThe app description describes the app as being a simple tool to aid users in visualizing any quadratic or linear equation in the form of a simple graph. And you can tell the developer has spent some time planning how the app interacts with the user. Getting a easy user interaction experience is much harder than it sounds for apps like these.

You can get the app here.

 

 

Dino Dash

dinodashA simple scrolling game where you control a dinosaur and shoot at on coming Pterodactyls (flying dinosaurs) while you jump in the air. The aim of the game is just to accumulate as many points as you can. It looks to be a good app to kill some time.

You can get Dino Dash with this link.

 

 

Flabby Burp

flappyburpYou’ve heard of Flappy Bird, this is Flappy Burp. The game is an obvious adaption of the popular app and taken from the lectures of The Complete Android Developer Course but with a twist! You have to avoid the coming hoard of fast food which approaches Burp.

Get Flappy Burp here.

 

 

Meteoroid Breaker

meteoroidbreakerA simple but fun game, Meteoroid Breaker is a game that tests the users. Quite simple to play, you just  break the hovering meteoroid by tapping on screen and moving your meteoroid forward before you fall on the ground. I can see people playing this game for hours on end. Not bad at all for a first app!

You can get Meteoroid Breaker here.

 

 

Down Up Challenge

downupThe is an fitness app for working the core. You choose an exercise from the app menu, set a time on how long you want to perform the exercise for and it takes you through the motion of when to go down and when to come back up. A professional looking app, there are two versions. The free version just gives you push ups only as an exercise while the paid version gives you a few more exercise variations such as leg raises, squats and a circuit randomiser.

Android App Roundup

Welcome to another roundup of published apps. Here we’re featuring some fun educational apps as well as an addictive game created by students of the Complete Android Developer Course.

Bubble Whiz

bubble whizzFirst up we have Bubble Whiz which is a tapping game that relies on timing and reactions. Quite a simple concept where a penguin in a bubble floats upwards but is intent to hit the wall. The idea is to tap on the edge of the bubble just before it hits the wall. If you tap too soon then the bubble will burst. As the penguin in the bubble floats higher the width of the walls will change.

Admittedly this is a rather addictive if not frustrating at times game. Definitely worth a go and you can check it out from the Play Store.

 

Candy Smash

Candy SmashYou’ve all heard of Candy Crush but this is Kids Candy Smash! It’s a great looking game with some good music to accompany it. Similar to Candy Crush you have to match letters to in a row to clear rows and columns. You have to match three letters of the same type to clear them. Despite the title of the game it’s perfectly acceptable for adults to play this game also.

Take a look at Kids Candy Smash here.

 

Dental Care

dentalThink you know about dental care? This app will not only provide you information about dental care but provides a guide for proper brushing technique and times you as you do it. There’s a collection of articles on home remedies for dental issues such as sensitivity and bleeding gums. You can even set an alarm to remind yourself to brush if you need reminding.

Don’t under estimate the simplicity of an app. It’s got quite a few positive reviews so far so it must be worth taking a look.

 

Table Trainer

Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 18.40.32Even as adults we can neglect basic arithmetic. Table Trainer is an app which will help you remember your multiplication table. It will allow you to test your self up to your ten times table where you present the answers in the form of multiple choice answers.

Critics would say there are quite a few very similar apps out there already but it’s important as a developer to get your first working app published which is an achievement itself. Hopefully this is the first of many from androidappfactory.nl and you can check out Table Trainer from here.

Android App Roundup

We’re seeing some really good apps published by students who have taken The Complete Android Developer Course and it’s a pleasure to share some of them here.

Hasten

hastenHasten is a vocabulary word game and the developer has released it under Apple iOS devices as well as Android. The concept is simple, you are given a number of letters and a time limit to combine them to make a word which you have to do on a roll. And you look to beat highest score.

A great way to exercise your brain daily whether you are on a commute or just have a few minutes spare.

Hasten is available from the Play store here.

 

Split Bill Calculator

splitbill

Created by Marcos Martini the same developer who created Hasten, Split Bill Calculator isn’t just a calculator! It allows the user to split a sum and share it via sms, email or even social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Very useful if you’re out dining and your friend forgot their wallet and you want want to send a reminder  or needing to share a split bill like a holiday booking.

Have a look at Split Bill Calculator here. Nice promotional video too!

 

Heathrow Airport Information

heathrow

A very useful app which shows flight arrivals and departures information, details of departure gates, baggage claim and has indoor airport maps. This app hasn’t been out for very long but not surprisingly has had a huge number of downloads.

This app is a must if you are travelling to London Heathrow Airport (LHA) to catch a flight or pick someone up.

Get the Heathrow Airport Information app from the Play Store here.

 

SideKick

sidekick

SideKick is an app which gives you a summary of how many of your Facebook friends liked and commented on your pictures. For some people this would be very useful – especially for those who do Facebook marketing as this app will consolidate likes and comments in one place.

Get Sidekick from the Play Store here.
