Apps of the day is back and we’ve got some fun things here for you guys to check out. But before you do that, I want you to take a look at the Paid Apps Pledge that started (and unfortunately fizzled away) over a year ago. While myself and my peers don’t necessarily update the world around us with what apps we’ve been buying, we still buy plenty of them and we encourage people to be supportive of Android’s fine developers. I’m not saying buy any old app just for the hell of it, but try and throw the developer a couple of dollars if they’re hosting a paid, ad-free version or if they accept donations. (And if you’re a pirate, you absolutely need to stop stealing. Yes, it is stealing.) Without them, there wouldn’t be an Android market. With that said, let’s spend some money!
Aces 3D Brick Breaker – I’ve always loved 3D brick breaking games, so I naturally got excited when I heard that Concrete Software released Aces 3D Brick Breaker to the Android market. For $2.99, you’re getting arguably the best game in its class. 70 different levels will keep you busy as well as the need to sit atop global leaderboards. The bonus levels here add a unique and engaging twist to the game ensuring you won’t get bored because you’ve “been there” and “done that”. Trust me, you owe it to yourself to put the change on the counter to get this. [Market]
GNotes – At first glance, this app will remind you of Evernote. A lot. But that’s not a bad thing, because Evernote is awesome itself. GNote seems to be just as good, though, if you aren’t one to need a desktop client to view and edit notes. If you are OK with keeping all of your jots mobile, this one offers a robust suite of features that’ll let you take any note you need, including drawings, writings, links, photos, sounds and more. Search features make it easy to find those notes and the sync feature – which utilizes your Gmail account – is perfect if you’re one to switch phones often or just in case you lose the notes in some sort of software failure. Free to download at the link ahead. [Market]
Jimmy Pataya – Base jumping and sky diving is already scary enough, but these guys had to go and add blades to the mix. In Jimmy Pataya you play Jimmy, a skydiver who apparently knows no fears. He needs to make his way back to earth safely but is surprised to learn that there are blades that he has to maneuver past on his way down. The further he falls, the faster he falls and the more whackier the blades are set up, meaning you’d better have pretty damn good control of your body or this saga won’t end too well. Your only friend here is the helmet – find it, and find it fast. [Market]
