by Ian Black

Heading to an event over the weekend? Download Eventbrite before you go! Dive into healthcare with Kaiser Permanente and, in games, help the Pyxxis 2 go home.

Eventbrite (Free)

This popular web service finally delivers an Android app. The app allows organizers to quickly and easily set up, promote and manage events of all types, including the ability to sell tickets.

This app focuses mostly on event participants. You can view a list of upcoming events, browse your registration info and pull up a barcode ticket than can be scanned for entry. Find directions to your event or alert friends and colleagues where you’re headed through social networks.

Kaiser Permanente (Free)

Is this the future of healthcare? With this app, Kaiser Permanente members can interact with medical staff, manage appointments, and find directions to KP sites.

Want more info about your own health? You’ve installed the right app. Here, you can browse your own secure digital medical records including a health summary, a list of your allergies and immunizations, prescription information, lab results and reminders about upcoming appointments.

Pyxxis 2 (Free)

The little creatures called Pyxxis need your help. They can only hop to the left but there are many obstacles and dangerous creatures between them and their home base. You must manipulate blocks that can reverse or increase gravity, make Pyxxis jump up or down, slow down, speed up or change direction.

Overall, it’s a fun physics puzzler that will boggle your mind with its cute character and difficult challenges.
