Apps of the Day [6/3]: Curvy, Read it Later Free, and More!


We’ve got some goodies for you today. We’ve once again scoured the Android Market and reader suggestions to come up with some apps you don’t want to miss out on. Lyrics? We got it. Fighting the undead? Check. Oh and Read it Later is now free. How convenient. Check it all out below.

Curvy – Curvy is yet another puzzle game, but it’s quite unlike any one I’ve played. You get a board of hexagons. Each of them has lines on them and can be rotated any number of times in each direction. The object of the game is to get the hexagons in their correct spot to form the shape that the lines make. I won’t lie – I had a ton of trouble with this game. It’s a head scratcher for sure, but if you like a challenge give it a shot. [Market – Lite | Full]

Lyric Legend – This is a somewhat unique title by the same folks who created the widely-popular TuneWiki music application from Android. They specialize in lyrics, so you had to imagine that this would be the game they’d make, if any. Think of it as Guitar Hero, except you’re trying to tap the words to the song you’re playing as they’re sung. The selection of music starting out is decent, but the only way to get more is to buy them. (Yes, with real money.) The free songs are worth a shot to see if you really like this challenging rhythm game. Check out our full review here. [Market]

Read it Later (Free) – Read it Later isn’t new to the Android Market, but for the first time it is available in a free to download version. The app does it exactly what the name describes: saves articles and web content for reading later, whether you are online or off. And it does it well. If you are an online news junkie but haven’t tried our Read it Later based on price, now you have no excuse at all. You know you’ll need it to catch up on all these Phandroid articles, anyway.

Age of Zombies – Another app that isn’t new, per se, but that has just become available for many more handsets. Originally a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play exclusive, Age of Zombies is now available for all multi-touch capable handsets running Android 1.6 or higher. The game is from Halfbrick Studios — makers of Fruit Ninja — and features top-down 2D gameplay in a world run-a-muck with Zombies (and Zombie dinosaurs). It’s addictively fun, too. [Market]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I love the “Apps Of The Day” articles.  Keep up the good work, and thanks on the heads-up.

  2. Curvy is the web game entangled

    1. Entangled has more lines, and is a placement problem versus a puzzle problem.  It is similar though.  Entangled is also a great game.

  3. Nice!!
