It’s all in an effort to help you, our faithful readers, get the most out of your Android handsets. Read on to see what we found today!
Writepad - The company behind handwriting recognition app WritePad just updated their app and it now supports print, cursive, or mixed writing on phones, tablets, and stylus-enabled Android devices in addition to improving their overall recognition capabilities. I can see where this might come in handy on a tablet, especially within the framework of specific apps or tasks, but I’m not so sure I want to be writing on a phone. Anyone with me? Of course I’m not a Swype fan either… [Market Link]
Sim City Deluxe - Sim City on my Android phone? It’s more likely than you think. EA released this mobile edition of the popular city-building franchise today. It isn’t as full-fledged as its PC counterpart, but the same basic concepts still apply as you build and manipulate your city. The game plays out in scenarios that see you taking the reigns of several pre-established cities. You can further grow the city and add your own touch with real-life landmarks. Just go easy on the earthquakes and alien invasions. [Market Link]
