Fresh Android Apps for Nov. 18: Ultimate App Guard, Immortals, Trip Organizer

by Ian Black

Last chance to get away before the holidays! Use Trip Organizer – Lite for a trip without stress.

Protect your phone against casual snoops with Ultimate App Guard and get your Greek on with Immortals.

Ultimate App Guard (Free)

It’s easy to lock your whole phone – but sometimes it’s better to lock just a few apps. You might lock apps while leaving your phone on your desk at work or in the family room on the weekends with kids. This way you can hand over your phone but still maintain your privacy.

Ultimate App Guard lets you lock individual apps with a PIN, swipe gesture, and password. You can also set a profile that shows only the apps you’ve locked. The app even locks itself so that others can’t mess with your settings.

Immortals ($2.99)

Here’s an official movie tie-in game that’s less gory than the movie it promotes. As in the film, Theseus battles the evil King Hyperion and his ferocious army with the fate of the Greek gods and man at stake.

The game aims for wall-to-wall action but with animated warriors it just doesn’t get as gruesome as the much-talked-about violent flick. Fight through ancient landscapes using two on-screen controls for character movement and weapon attack.

Trip Organizer – Lite (Free)

Touted as all-in-one travel app, this download aims to provide a complete information source for your overseas journey. Before you go, you’ll find suggested itineraries, packing checklists, recommended or required vaccines, needed official documents and visas, and medical items to carry.

Upon arrival, the app gives local phone numbers for public and emergency services, current local events, local language useful phrases, weather forecasts and a lot more. Covers over 150 countries!
