by Ian Black

No, it’s not too early to think about Spring. Plan ahead for better weather with Mosquito Repellent Sonic HD. For fun, download Arel Wars, a fantasy strategy game, and Airport City, for your next virtual career.

Mosquito Repellent Sonic HD (Free)

Picture a beautiful spring picnic with a loved one. Everything is going perfectly – the weather, the food, the scenery and the romance – except for the mosquitoes! Download this app on your Android and you’ll save the magic moment.

The app works through sound, using ultrasonic levels undetectable to the human ear which mimics mosquito predators like the dragonfly. Change the pitch with a touch of an on-screen button, but don’t worry about your Android’s battery life. The description says it sips juice instead of gulps.


Cross a role-playing game (RPG) with a tower defense game and you get Arel Wars! First, lead your army to attack and capture the mysterious towers of Drusilla. Then, batten down the hatches and defend the towers against the invading tribal armies that come to take your place.

Fantasy troops include the speedy Hume, aggressive Buster, and magical Elven and you can assemble and control up to 50 units made from their ranks. Win battles and earn new skills to upgrade your soldiers.

Airport City (Free)

The you-build-it game genre just leveled up. Sure, you did your time launching small farms and perhaps even running an organized crime syndicate but that’s nothing compared to building and operating an international airport.

Take flight with the nuts and bolts of air travel from the ticket takers, to the luggage transport systems, from people mover planning, to the jet fleet. Once you get the planes arrivals and departures on time, try building the surrounding city to support all the travel and workforce your new hub requires.
