Apps for June 13, 2012

One More Clock Widget

Still have not found your favorite clock widget? Maybe One More Clock Widget is more to your liking. One More Clock Widget is a widget that displays the current time, date, weather, and battery level in a widget. What makes One More Clock Widget different than other click widget apps, however, is One More Clock Widget supports themes for its widgets; and there are currently over 60 themes you can pick from (eleven which comes with the app with the option to download the others). Because of how different the themes are from one another, essentially One More Clock Widget provides users with over 60 clock widgets to pick from; and One More Clock Widget allows users to place multiple widgets and each widget can have its own theme.

Other features of One More Clock Widget is multiple sized widgets (4×2 by default with the option to have 4×4, 4×1, 3×3, 3×1, 2×2, 2×1, 1×3 by purchasing the paid version) and ability to customize each widget individually in regards to time format and time zone.

As already hinted at, One More Clock Widget has a free and paid version. As far as I can tell, the only difference between the free and paid version is the paid version has different sized widgets to pick from whereas the free version only has 4×2.

Price: Free, $0.99

Version discovered: v1.3.3

Requires: Android 1.6 and up

Download size: 2.7 MB

100 Floors Official Cheats

Can’t beat all the levels on 100 Floors, a unique puzzle game for Android? Then download 100 Floors Official Cheats, an app that shows you step-by-step how to beat each level. For each 100 Floors level, 100 Floors Official Cheats provides step-by-step directions (in text) on how to beat the level along with images and a Youtube video.

Take note there are many 100 Floors guides/cheats apps out there. What makes 100 Floors Official Cheats different than the rest is 100 Floors Official Cheats is the official guide created by the same developer who created 100 Floors; other guides are by third-party developers looking to cash in on 100 Floors’ popularity.

Price: Free

Version discovered: v1.0.1

Requires: Android 2.1 and up

Talking Baby Boy

Talking Baby Boy is an app that features a cute baby boy whom you can play with. Shake your phone and the boy dances; tap the baby (“hit the baby”) and the baby cries; talk to the baby and the baby repeats your words in his own little voice (you have the use the ‘Record’ and ‘Play’ buttons for this feature).

Unfortunately the features of Talking Baby Boy stop there; so this app this has a long way to go before it can match other talking apps. Still, it provides some momentary entertainment.

Take note Talking Baby Boy doesn’t properly play sound on my Nexus S (Android 4.0.4); but it does on another device running Android 2.3.x. So the app isn’t fully bug free yet.

Price: Free

Version discovered: v1.1
