Fri, February 20, 2015: C25K Pro


Fri, February 20, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: C25K Pro!


Application Description:

From couch to 25k

From Slouch to Runner

C25K is short for Couch to five kilometers. C25K Pro for your smartphone is designed to get just about anyone from being a couch potato to running either five kilometers or 30 minutes in just nine weeks.

Too many people have been deterred from running simply because they try starting off too fast and too far. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves. You should ease into your running program gradually, with the help of C25K Pro on your Android device.

The Program

Couch to five kilometers is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The C25K running plan from Cool Running is a great way to get someone who's never run before to being a three-mile runner in nine weeks. It alternates running and walking, slowly getting the body accustomed to distance running. It times your workout, letting you know through audio clips when it's time to switch your pace while listening to the music of your choice or podcasts you've downloaded onto your smartphone. For example, switch pace from walking to running, or from running to cooling down. Additionally, if you like C25K, there's a follow up plan that will get you to 10K.

Features

This Pro version has background mode, music controller, voice cues, custom sounds and notifications, and Facebook integration.

In C25K Pro's settings, you can customize your program regimen:

Volume boost allows you to set the correct volume for program notifications while other music of your choice is playing.Screen lock allows you to choose whether or not to lock your screen during a session so no other processes can be accidentally launched while you're running.Vibrate on Notification alerts you physically of a change in your running session.Customize your Facebook messages and choose whether you want to be prompted to update your Facebook page.You can choose your own notification sounds on top of the built-in voice and bell ones. You can actually use any ringtone for any notification.You can choose additional notifications for one-minute left, halfway, or custom markers. You can also choose whether you want the notifications spoken by a male or female voice, or bell alerts.You can control the music right from within the app. No need to switch apps if you want to pause, forward, or go back on your playlist.Notification for "turning around" when you're in the middle of the workout, in case you want to run and then come back.

Starting out your nine-week program

Last week: success

Post to Facebook to let friends know how well you're doing

Tue, February 24, 2015: Sudoku 4ever Plus


Tue, February 24, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: Sudoku 4ever Plus!


Application Description:

A cut-above in Sudoku apps

Game statistics

Advanced and Full-Featured: Sudoku4ever

Sudoku4ever by 1gravity offers an unlimited number of puzzles, eight difficulty levels from Very Easy to Nightmare, a world-class hint engine, game statistics and global high scores.

A standard Sudoku puzzle consists of a 9x9 grid, with a total of 81 cells. Each position in the grid is called a cell. A cell can be empty, or filled with a digit. This digit can be any digit between one and nine. You must place digits into the grid in such a way that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains each of the digits one through nine.

A number of digits have been placed into the grid by the maker. They are called givens, clues, or fixed digits. They are placed in such a way that you can use logical reasoning to find the solution. A well-formed Sudoku has a single solution that can be found by reasoning, regardless of the complexity of that reasoning.

Sudoku: A Brief History

A game called "Number Place" was designed by Howard Garns, and first published by Dell Magazines in 1979. The puzzle was introduced in Japan by Nikoli in 1984, who gave it the name "Sudoku," which is an abbreviation for the original Japanese name meaning "The Numbers must be Unique." The whole world adopted this new name, but in Japan, Nikoli owns the trademark, so other publishers in Japan call it Nanpure, the Japanese translation of Number Place.

By the end of 2004, Sudoku appeared in The Times in Britain, brought to Europe by Wayne Gould, the founder of Pappocom. Many newspapers worldwide followed. Sudoku magazines can be found everywhere. Sudokus are published on the Internet on a daily basis. And many people have become addicted to it.

The Puzzles

Every puzzle included in Sudoku4ever has a unique solution and can be solved using logic only (no guessing), although there's a controversial discussion going on in the Sudoku community about where logic ends and guessing starts, and which solving technique belongs to which category. If you doubt that a puzzle is solvable, use the solve function (the solver also checks for multiple solutions) or the hint function to get a step-by-step solution path.

For aesthetic reasons, a large part of Sudoku puzzle makers think they look nicer by making them symmetric one way or the other. From a mathematical point of view, the symmetry has no effect, other than that the chances for redundant givens in the grid increases with a higher level of symmetry. Sudoku4ever generates symmetrical puzzles only.

Eight levels: play forever

Eight Levels of Difficulty

Sudoku4ever offers eight difficulty levels. Each level contains only puzzles with difficulty ratings within a well-defined range:

Very Easy: rating between 1.0 and 1.2Easy: rating between 1.3 and 1.5Moderate: rating between 1.6 and 2.3Advanced: rating between 2.4 and 2.8Hard: rating between 2.9 and 3.4Very Hard: rating between 3.5 and 4.4Fiendish: rating between 4.5 and 6.2Nightmare: rating between 6.3 and 10.0

Hint and Check Functionality

The hint functionality is helpful should you get stuck in a puzzle. Each hint with its three detail levels (small clue, big clue, and hint) has been designed to present exactly the right amount of help: not too much to spoil the fun but enough to be able to move a step forward. A lot of effort has been put into the visualization of hints. Even complex hints should be comprehensible when combining the text explanations and the visualization on the board, the latter sometimes using several views, e.g. for multiple forcing chains. Some hints are too complex to be visualized because there's just too much information to be shown. You shouldn't run into that particular problem for puzzles with difficulty level below Nightmare.

The hint engine doesn't just produce hints; it is also able to check for incorrect digits, incorrect pencil marks and illegal puzzles (no solution, multiple solutions, too few clues or givens etc.). If incorrect digits or pencil marks exist, the first hint will be a warning hint that can be used to correct the faulty digits on the board.

Pencil marks are incorrect if a value is either illogical (digit already set in the same row, column or block) or if the correct value is missing (check against solution).

Once no full houses and hidden singles are present, a hint will be produced to compute all missing pencil marks because all but the most basic solving techniques require pencil marks. Of course naked singles and other patterns can also be found without pencil marks, but it's just a bit more difficult.

It can be frustrating to work on a puzzle for 10, 20 or more minutes just to realize that you made a mistake and need to backtrack. That's where the check functionality comes in handy.

Entering and Clearing Digits

Depending on the selected input method, the digit buttons work differently.

Digit First: first press a digit button, then select the cell to enter or clear the digitCell First: first select a cell then press a digit button to enter or clear one digitAndoku Cell First: first select a cell then press one or several digit buttons to enter or clear one or more digitsAndoku Digit First: basically a Digit First input method that allows entering or clearing one or more digits at once (multiple digit buttons can be selected before selecting a cell)Mixed: Digit First for values, Andoku Cell First for pencil marksPopup: Select a cell and a popup appears to pick a digit to be entered

To clear a digit either enter the same digit again or use the erase button.

Keyboard: you can use the delete key and the digit-key zero to delete digits and pencil marks. Pressing these keys is identical to pressing the erase button. The digit keys one through nine are used to set digits and pencil marks. Pressing the digit keys is identical to pressing the digit buttons.

Pencil Marks

Pencil marks are used to remember the remaining candidates for a cell and thus to find patterns that help in solving the puzzle. While it's possible to solve easy puzzles without using pencil marks, harder puzzles can't be solved without them.

If you select the pencil mark button, you can alter pencil marks. Entering and clearing of pencil marks works the same as entering and clearing digits. If auto pencil mode is set to Auto Set, pencil marks can't be altered, but the pencil button is still enabled to support the different highlighting options.

Undo and Redo

Sudoku4ever supports unlimited undo and redo. The undo and redo history is saved together with the puzzle and restored whenever the game is resumed. There are separate undo and redo histories for altering a puzzle's digits (values and pencil marks) and its colors in Coloring Mode.

Get color-solving functionality

Coloring Mode

Sudoku4ever is one of the few Sudoku apps on Android offering a special coloring mode to support color-solving techniques. Coloring mode can be enabled either by selecting the associated item in the options menu or by long-pressing an enabled button or the Sudoku board if Toggle Coloring Mode is enabled.

Color buttons: the six color buttons are used to pick one or two of four different colors. The bi-color buttons are used for multi-coloring techniques.

Color erase button: the color eraser is used to erase the colors of one cell at a time.Erase button: the eraser removes all colors at once (undo possible).Color mode button: if the color mode button is checked, colors can be altered; if it's unchecked, digits (values and pencil marks) can be altered.Color pencil button: if the color pencil button is checked, pencil marks can be colored instead of cells. This is for advanced coloring techniques as well as for finding forcing chains.

Pausing Game

If the pause button is pressed, the game is paused; the game timer stops and the board will show question marks instead of digits. The game is also paused if you navigate away from the application. Pressing the space key is another way to toggle the pause button.

Saving Game

There's no need to directly save a game, as this happens automatically, e.g. when the game is paused or if you navigate away from the play screen. You can play as many games as you like in parallel, and resume them whenever you want.

High Scores and Achievements

If you enable OpenFeint, and you are logged in, your played time will be submitted to the global leaderboard (one for each difficulty).

Every puzzle is eligible for being submitted, but only the first time it's played and if none of the two options, Check Puzzle, or Highlight Errors were set to show incorrect digits (even temporarily). You can re-play a puzzle, but the time won't be submitted to the global leaderboard.

Bookmarks

Setting a bookmark allows you to save the current board position and to return to that same position. This is useful for exploring different solving paths, as some might lead to board positions that are practically unsolvable.

Analysis Function

The analysis function computes a list of solving techniques needed to solve a puzzle. It also computes the puzzle's difficulty rating, a decimal value between 1.0 (easiest) and 10.0 (hardest). Harder puzzles can take a long time to analyze so please be patient when using this function on Nightmare puzzles.

Value Compare

If you've downloaded and played other Sudoku apps, you'll soon find them lacking features listed here for Sudoku4ever. If you're a serious Sudoku player, graduate to the higher levels of play and functionality. Try Sudoku4ever and see the difference.

Mon, March 2, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: Trainyard!


Application Description:

Trainyard is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.

The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

Stuck on a puzzle? Visit http://trainyard.ca/solutions where there are over *1.5 million* player-submitted solutions.

Tue, March 3, 2015: CrossMe Premium Nonograms


Tue, March 3, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: CrossMe Premium Nonograms!


Application Description:

!

Cross Me is a Japanese crossword known as a Nonogram. The objective is to discover a hidden image by marking cells or leaving them blank, according to the numbers displayed on the side of the grid.

Facing a grid of cells, you will carefully determine which cells to mark and which to leave empty. The darkened cells will begin to take shape and reveal an image.

What Will You Reveal

Look at the numbers displayed across the top and the left-hand side of the grid. Each number represents the number of filled cells in that row or column. Fill all cells in the correct way to solve the picture. All numbers should have a strike-through after filling in the appropriate cells. If you tap on a cell, it will be filled. If you tap on that cell again, it will be crossed. If you tap on that cell one more time, it will be empty again.

A few simple crosswords are provided for you to learn how to play the game, as well as the step-by-step tutorial. Those familiar with Japanese crosswords may skip this and go to more challenging larger pictures. All crosswords have been checked.

Tip: To fill the line of cells at once, tap and hold the cell. A ring will appear and after that, move it. You can find other tips in the game rules.

Thu, March 5, 2015: Red Wrecker


Thu, March 5, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: Red Wrecker!


Application Description:

Red Wrecker comes with a full tutorial

The levels get tougher and tougher

Exterminate the Red Shapes

The object of the brain-busting game of Red Wrecker seems simple enough: knock the red shapes off the screen, but keep the green shapes in the game. As you dive deeper into this game, though, you'll have to take cold, hard logic and relentless physics into account as you rid the screen of those pesky red shapes.

Inspired by the classic game Red Remover, Red Wrecker challenges your brain and tests your reflexes. On each level, you're presented with a haphazardly stacked set of red, green, and blue shapes. You tap the blue shapes to make them drop from their position. The blue shapes can either make the red shapes drop from the screen or prevent the green shapes from dropping away.

Test Your Brain and Fingers

The first few levels of Red Wrecker are pretty easy. That's because those opening levels are merely a tutorial to get you used to the game's premise and physics. Once you're on your own, you'll face increasingly more fiendish puzzlers that will test your logic skills and hand-eye coordination.

Get Wrecking

Enjoy and be infuriated by the fun and challenging levels. New levels are added all the time. The high-resolution graphics are specially designed for tablet devices. Red Wrecker is integrated with OpenFeint, so you can earn achievements and post your wrecking skills on the global leaderboards.

Sun, March 8, 2015: Thinkrolls


Sun, March 8, 2015: Today's free Amazon android app of the day is: Thinkrolls!


Application Description:

Set your child?s mind in motion. Thinkrolls are the 22 hilarious characters in this educational app that's one part rolling ball platformer, one part physics puzzler and 100% irresistible for kids 3-8.

Kids will have a blast navigating their Thinkrolls through a series of obstacles in brightly patterned mazes. Each chapter introduces a new object with unique physical properties which kids discover through hands-on manipulation. Little players encounter and use to their advantage force, acceleration, buoyancy, heat, elasticity and gravity to get their Thinkrolls where they need to go.

Thinkrolls has all the trappings of popular platformer and physics puzzlers, but it incorporates a wealth of educational content. It appeals to children?s natural curiosity and challenges them with gameplay that fosters creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Each of the 104 easy and 103 harder levels gradually build upon successive lessons to strengthen observation, reasoning, problem solving, spatial cognition and memory.

There's no failure here. As kids try different combinations to clear a path through the maze, they intuitively learn through trial and error what works. There's also a strong element of executive function. Kids must plan out their moves in advance, use precise timing and rely on their memory to reunite their Thinkroll buddies. Parents can virtually see the wheels spinning in their children?s heads as they orchestrate their moves.

CHAPTER DESCRIPTIONS

Cookie ? Kids get accustomed to the fine motor skills needed to navigate the mazes as they munch cookies to clear a path.

Crate ? Any child who has pushed a chair up to the kitchen counter in order to reach the cookie jar will know what to do with the crates.

Balloon ? Buoyancy gets added to the mix as kids burst balloons on spikes.

Rock ? Kids get a crash course in Newtonian physics as they discover that dropping a heavy, dense boulder will generate enough force to break through cracked ground.

Jelly ? Bouncing on beds isn't necessary when there?s a springy jelly available to launch the Thinkroll out of valleys and up onto peaks.

Fire ? The crackling sound of flames will alert kids to a burning hazard ahead, but ice blocks put out the fire.

Elevator ? The culmination of everything kids have discovered and processed so far has them coordinating all the elements as they synchronize movements of two different elevators.

Bonus - Theory of Everything in action! Combination of all elements and forces in even more challenging puzzles

Incoming missiles rain down at night--tap on the screen and use the multi-touch feature to launch interceptors. Repairs and upgrades are available during the day, as you steel yourself for yet another fear-stricken night.

Upgrade your defenses in this Sisyphean struggle against the Fates

Anticipate the path of enemy missiles and pick your targets accurately. Keep an eye on your own missile count and use them strategically. Be constantly vigilant as difficulty increases each nightfall. And keep holding on to the idea that someday it will all end. Someday...

Retro 80s Zeitgeist

Missile Defender is in the style of a classic 80s arcade game. It features clean HD art work, multi-touch controls, upgradable missiles, and endless levels of gameplay--without the oppressive fear of a real-world nuclear brinkmanship. If you've enjoyed those old quarter-guzzlers, Missile Defender is sure to bring back great memories.

Prepare to get nostalgic as you defend civilization from anachronistic existential threats in Missile Defender!
