Apps of the Day: Sweeper 3D and Mobile Mouse


While this week’s slate of news may have been gobbled up by the DROID RAZR, Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich, we still like to highlight applications that run on all these cool phones. After all, they wouldn’t be smartphone if they couldn’t do the many things that they can. We’ve only got a couple of apps for you today so take a look – we think you’ll really enjoy them.

Sweeper 3D – While I’ve never been a huge Minesweeper guy, I can’t deny a good looking game when I see it. Sweeper 3D takes that concept and puts it into multiple dimensions, giving players an entirely new dynamic to work with. As the name suggests, you’re dealing with a 3D board on which to sweep for mines. The goals are the same but you’ll have to keep in mind the unique situation that a 3D map creates before you can be successful with this game. Not a bad puzzler for free. [Market]

Mobile Mouse – Mobile mouse allows you to control your PC using nothing but your phone. It works by sending commands over your WiFi signal as a server on your PC receives them and carries out whatever you want done. It was created with HTPCs in mind so if your media server is fed through that, you’ll want this (that’s if you don’t already have an elaborate remote to use). It’s compatible with the Mac and PC and costs just $3 in the market. [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.
