Can you taste it? The long weekend beckons and if the weather holds, you’ll be grillin’ and chillin’ with your Android. Get your social calendar in order with the CallerID-on-steroids app, CallApp.
For fun, try the sci-fi shoot-em’-up Mass Effect Infiltrator or the movie promo game, Men In Black 3.
Some apps “build a better mousetrap” and I think this might be one of them. Just when you thought the calling function of your Android could generate no more innovation – boom! – CallApp arrives.
The premise: when someone calls you it would be very useful to know who they are, how you know them, any major updates in their lives and so on. This would help you reconnect and make the call productive. This app provides that info, in a concise list, by pulling stuff from social networks and websites. It does the same for people you call, making it easy to know if “this is a good time”.
Mass Effect Infiltrator ($6.99)
The super-popular Mass Effect game delivers a new story line exclusive to mobile in this fresh app. Be warned: the download is a huge 450MB and requires Wi-Fi.
In this chapter, you play a Cerberus Agent who “tags and bags” aliens for experimentation in a secret medical facility. But the soldiers running the site go too far, and you decide to become a whistle blower and bring the whole organization down. After a brief intro, this game becomes a fight for survival, as you must escape from the military base and battle against an entire army on your way to freedom.
Expect stunning graphics, turbo-charged weaponry, twisted sci-fi creatures, and the ultra-violence of the “melee attack”. Not for the faint of heart!
Men In Black 3 (Free)
What timing! This movie tie-in game arrives just before the film itself (which bows this weekend). Have you ever watched the MIB series and thought to yourself, “Who is running this nuthouse?” In this game, that would be you!
Now, you are in charge of the Men In Black government agency and, like the you-build-it genre games, you must add rooms and upgrade weapons to make the place run smoothly. Following the plot of the latest installment, you’ll travel back in time to 1969 New York City to foil the future attack of The Radiant on the human race.
