by Phil Hornshaw

Get organized and accomplish your daily goals with Do It! Pro. The to-do list app syncs with your Google Tasks to help maintain organization of all the things you need to accomplish across multiple devices. For those of you with rooted devices, we've got Notifications Off, an app that gives you centralized control of all your device's notifications. Finally, there's Dungeon Hunter 4, the latest in Gameloft's action role-playing game series.

Do It! Pro: ToDo & Tasks Lists update ($2.99)

What’s it about? Do It! Pro Is a task list manager that lets you sync up with Google Tasks to keep track of everything that needs doing.

What’s cool? There are plenty of to-do list apps in the Google Play store, but the really good ones come bursting with features. Do It! Pro starts by letting you take down tasks, create lists and monitor what you have to do in a day, but it begins to expand by letting you sync with Google Tasks in order to stay more organized. It also can produce account-specific reminders about what you have to do and when you have to do it, and supports multiple lists that you can swipe between to keep organized. The app supports widgets for the newest versions of Android, and its latest updates include a number of changes that make everything work better.

Who’s it for? If you need help staying organized with everything you need to get done, try Do It! Pro.

Notifications Off (Free)

What’s it about? Need a quick way to shut down all your phone's notifications? Notifications Off can handle the job.

What’s cool? Notifications Off centralizes control of the notifications that pop up on your phone, allowing you to bypass shutting them down individually by going to each app and hunting down the controls to do so. If you've got your Android device rooted, you can use Notifications Off to shut down all notifications at once, or switch off the notifications of individual apps even as soon as they're installed. Keep in mind that this one's a beta release, though, so it might contain some bugs.

Who’s it for? Notifications Off requires your device to be rooted, so if you're not into that sort of thing, you'll want to skip it.

What’s it like? Notification Toggle and Notification Launcher offer more ways to control your notifications and what you do with them.

Dungeon Hunter 4 (Free)

What’s it about? Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter series expands again with Dungeon Hunter 4, which takes a free-to-play stance on the developer's Diablo-like action-role-playing franchise.

What’s cool? Like the rest of the Dungeon Hunter series, Dungeon Hunter 4 packs great production values and some solid gameplay as players take on the roles of heroes and venture into dungeons to kill monsters and demons. The series takes a page from action-RPGs such as Diablo III on PC, with players grabbing loot and weapons while raising skills and unlocking new abilities. You can choose from one of four types of warrior to play with, each packing different capabilities, but keep in mind that the free-to-play model limits what players can do in the game without paying.

Who’s it for? If you like Gameloft's other high production value games or PC games such as Diablo III and Torchlight 2, you'll want to try the Dungeon Hunter games.
