We’ve also got My Job Chart, an app for helping keep kids’ chores and rewards organized, and Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster, a side-scrolling game in which players use physics to keep a coaster loaded with plush animals from flying off the rails.

Sulia Quick Launch (Free)

What’s it about? Sulia’s app lets you lock into the Sulia social network and also provides you with smart app launcher.

What’s cool? Beyond the typical launcher, developer Conduit's app lets you access Sulia's own social network, which is geared around searching for experts on various topics and connecting with them. Sulia includes tons of topics for you search, through which you can connect with other people.

My Job Chart (Free)

What’s it about? Help kids keep track of their daily chores in My Job Chart, and use it to dole out rewards and keep them motivated.

What’s cool? Keeping kids motivated to do chores can be a chore in and of itself, which is why My Job Chart was created. The app is meant to make assigning, tracking and rewarding chores among kids as easy as possible. You can create lists of chores for each child that can be ticked off as they’re completed, and My Job Chart lets you keep track of allowance rewards the kids earn over time. The idea is that My Job Chart teaches kids how to earn money and financial responsibility.

Who’s it for? Parents who want to help teach their kids responsibility and make sure they earn their keep should check out My Job Chart.

Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster (Free)

What’s it about? Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster is a side-scroller in which players control an off-the-rails roller coaster as it flies across tracks, around loops and over gaps.

What’s cool? Your job in Nutty Fluffies is to keep your roller coaster from crashing as it whips around various tracks and levels, loaded with plush animals. One touch controls gas while another controls breaks, and you’ll need to hit both at the right times in order to keep from crashing. The game includes 30 tracks and lots of collectibles for enhancing your roller coaster.

Who’s it for? This one is for those who are into arcade physics games, or those who prefer a more tame roller coaster experience.

What’s it like? More side-scrolling fun is available in developer Ubisoft’s Rayman Jungle Run, and you can make your own coasters in Creator RollerCoaster.
