Fresh Android Apps for Nov. 22: Adobe Kuler, Extreme Evasion, Fishing Diary

by Ian Black

Two more days to turkey! Plan to spend a few hours of your upcoming long weekend going virtual fishing with Fishing Diary. When you’ve got to run away from family, try Extreme Evasion.

For a new utility designed for creative projects, download Adobe Kuler.

Adobe Kuler ($9.99)

Love color? Adobe made this tablet app for color creatives so that they can design color palettes anywhere.

Import a picture and the app will produce a color palette derived from it, then touch the image to adjust the palette in real time. Need more? Use an extra large color wheel to spin yourself up some swatches. Export these themes into other Adobe software for use in production projects.

Adobe believes the freedom of tablet-based color palette creation will unleash new amazing projects. Grab your Android tablet and get coloring!

Extreme Evasion (Free)

A few minutes playing this game and the people around you will swear you’ve lost control of your Android.

Choose your ship and weapons and you’ll be good to go – off to outer space that is. Start tilting your device up, down, right and left to move your ship around the 3D space (with precision plane control, says the app developers). Your ship eats plasma globes for energy but will need a lot of them in order to keep rocketing away from the UFOs determined to bring down your ship.

Initial reviews say its fast and furious. Be careful not to drop your device while playing.

Fishing Diary (Free)

Some fishermen like the quiet and calm of fishing, but they aren’t the audience of this frantic sea hunt. You can start to catch fish just by tapping them with your finger on the screen of your Android, but the app provides a bag of tricks to increase your catch. Drop slices of bread to entice fish into small feeding groups or use explosives to blow all of them out of the water. Snare enough fish and you’ll power up your deadly laser beam.

Watch for mermaids because they know where the treasure is. If you capture them, they’ll tell you where to look.
