What time is it? It’s time for Apps of the Day. We once again dove headfirst into the Android Market and came out on the other side with some of its latest and greatest apps. Today we train our brains, read up on back issues of a wide selection of Magazines offered through Zinio, and once again sync our SMS messages with our tablets. Read on for more.
SPB Brain Evolution – Didn’t train your brain well enough with other brain training games? If you’re still stuck with “Schoolchild” as your Brain Evolution status, you’ll be glad to know that you have another suite of compelling games to test your intelligence level. Sudoku, memory games, mathematics – it’s all here. You’ll unlock more games as you perfect the others. Play two games per day minimum for a better chance at increasing your intelligence level. If you’ve been out of the school loop for a while and need to jog your brain, download the free version now. [Market]
Zinio – It wasn’t that long ago – less than a month, in fact – that Zinio for Honeycomb tablets made its way to market. Aside from offering a boatload of magazines from a boatload of publishers, one interesting feature was its hardware acceleration. While those features, by nature, aren’t available in the handset version that’s just come out, we’re glad that a handset version is available. For free, in fact. But the app is driven by you buying subscriptions, of course, so if you’re a fan of reading your magazines digitally Zinio is a sure bet. Go ahead and find it in the Android market. [Market]
DesktopSMS – Another option for gaining access to texts on your Android tablet or desktop PC, DesktopSMS from ClockworkMod cleverly intercepts messages and forwards them to your Gtalk or Gmail. Reply to the message and the opposite occurs, pushing a message to your phone and sending it as an SMS. An elegant solution, to say the least. The app is still in beta, so bugs are to be expected, but definitely worth checking out. [Market]
