Fresh Android Apps for Aug. 15: MAX GO, Paper Camera, Bord, Bee Avenger FREE

by Ian Black

Summertime is sifting away like sand through an hourglass. Kick your enjoyment into high gear with MAX GO, capture the unique moments with Paper Camera, get Bord with your kids, or help a bee save the hive in Bee Avenger.

MAX GO (Free)

HBO wasn’t done when they released HBO GO for Android. Now Cinemax, an HBO property, gets the same treatment.

With a Cinemax subscription, you can watch 400 popular movies, independent films, and shows from the network’s Max After Dark segment streamed to your Android device. Create a watchlist of shows to access from your device and then use a Series Pass to automatically get new episodes of favorite shows sent to your watchlist.

Share your finds on Facebook and Twitter.

Paper Camera ($2.42)

A cool photo app comes to Android. The app uses filters to take unusual photos with your Android’s camera.

Open the app and simply choose your funny-named filter – like Neon Cola, Old Printer, Half Ton, and more. Adjust the brightness, contrast, and lines from slider bars on the screen. Then, press the camera icon to capture. One tap will switch to your device’s front-facing camera.

Turn your life into line drawings.

Bord (Free)

Forget the smart-boards that are all the rage in schools. This app turns your Android into an old-time chalkboard.

Create chalk drawings on a realistic green chalkboard using six colors and three different sizes of chalk. Use multi-touch to draw with more than one finger at a time. The sponge erases – with smudges and chalk dust traces – just like a real eraser.

Use the playback feature to replay chalk drawings or send them out over email and Facebook.

Bee Avenger FREE (Free)

Bears might be big and scary but they’ve met their match when they cross the Bee Avenger.

Here, a speedy bear has stolen the Bee Avenger’s hive and the angry bee will stop at nothing to get it back. You must steer the Avenger, with his jaunty black pilot helmet, through obstacles using your Android’s accelerometer.

Avoid branches and tree stumps while you gather points by collecting honeycombs and spinning flowers on your mission of vengeance.
