by Ian Black

Welcome back from the long weekend! Ease into the shorter work-week with some fresh Android apps. If you blog, check out Squarespace for Android. For fun, try the unusual tower defense game Sentinel 3: Homeworld or hunt the muffins in Muffin Knight.

Squarespace for Android (Free)

Running a blog? If you happen to use the Squarespace (www.squarespace.com) service for your content management, then downloading this mobile app for Squarespace is a no brainer. If you don’t use Squarespace, this app’s features might make you want to switch.

Compose and post a new blog entry, edit in multiple formats (HTML, text, textile, and Markdown), publish photos, manage all aspects of comments, get push notifications of new comments, and more.

You can even manage more than one Squarespace site from this app too.

Sentinel 3: Homeworld ($2.03)

This is the third release of the Sentinel tower defense game series, but the first available on Android.

The visuals and sci-fi theme set it apart from most entries in the tower defense category. Battle fast-moving deadly enemy aliens in their own homeworld (hence the title). Choose your tower weapons and place along the maze. Thankfully, in this game, super-weapons and robotic Mech give you more mobility than other tower games.

Play in three different modes: Campaign, Endless, and Classic.

Muffin Knight ($2.99)

Magical muffins play a central role in this stylized platformer. A little boy who loves muffins falls under a magical curse. Every muffin he touches turns into a different creature. As the Muffin Knight, he must retrieve all the muffins and bring them back to the old fairy.

Play as 15 different characters, each with their own unique abilities as you fight dragons, turtles, werewolves, ghosts, bats, and goblins. If you beat the Big Boss you can level up and unlock additional characters.

Levels include Ghost Town, Lava Land, Castle, and more. Play multiplayer across both iOS and Android phones.
