Apps for May 23, 2012

Board Game Tools

Board Game Tools will help out in case you have lost some of your things you need to play your board games. This app includes dice that you can select from 1 up to 6 as well as locking any dice like you would if you played Yahtzee. You also get a digital timer which you might need if you can’t find your hourglass, and it also includes different alarms. You also get an annoying buzzer if you need something like that. You even get a score card in case you can’t find any paper to write scores down. You can remove the ads for a price of $0.99 if you can’t stand them.

mailPro is a mail program separate from the included mail app on your device. This will work with your Hotmail, MSN or Live mail and treating it as if you are viewing this through your standard web browser. You can manage multiple accounts, you get email synchronization, move emails between folders, composes email with the capability to attach photos, you can view your email in landscape mode which can be used for composing or reading emails, and you can have a PIN code so that only people with the password could access protection to avoid unauthorized access. This supports a bunch of attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents to name a few.

There is a Lite version, but this contains ads so if you want to use the app as it should you can purchase the full version. You can check your email in the included email program so you might not need this app if you have a newer phone, but those of us that don’t have the latest operating this works out very well checking my Hotmail account.
