Apps for June 4, 2012 Pro

Looking for a task manager that not only allows you to manage tasks on Android but also to sync the tasks across other platforms, such as the web or your PC? Look no further than Pro. Pro is a task manager app that follows the five stages of Getting Things Done: ollect, Process, Organize, Review, Pick tasks and Do. Features of Pro include the ability to add tasks (with details such as title, start time, deadline, ability to repeat, categorizing into categories [“projects”], setting priority, setting reminders, and setting tags), reorder tasks, delete tasks, send tasks to contacts, etc.

If you are widget fans, Pro has interactive widgets that list tasks — widgets of 2×2, 3×3, 3×4, 4×3 — and a 4×4 widget that lists a calender.

That said, one of the best features of Pro is its ability to sync tasks across multiple platforms. By design tasks are stored in the cloud and synced with; you can then access your tasks across platforms such as iOS, web, Mac, and Windows. You need to of course download the programs on those platforms aside from the web platform.

Super Chicken

Super Chicken is an-arcade style game in which the goal of each stage is to hatch three eggs by collecting them and sitting on them. You do this by flying your chicken (tap and hold to fly; let go to fall) and landing it on the nest. As you progress through the levels they get harder with added obstacles such as trees (which you get dazed and lose if you run into), sparrows, and a fox that steals eggs.
