Top 5 Apps of June!

June has come and passed and better later than never, here are my most used apps of June πŸ™‚

1. Minion Rush


We’ve been waiting for the sequel to Despicable Me for a while now and Gameloft gave us a little tease with the game Minion Rush. It has a lot of resemblance to Subway Surfer, but I actually think this game was a lot more fun.

See for yourself:

2. Duolingo


I love languages and the power of words. That’s why I’ve always wanted to learn as many languages as I can. I tried to learn French in school, but the teachers weren’t very good so I’m giving it a new go with the help of Duolingo. It’s a fun and easy way to learn the basics of a new language.

3. Polamatic


As I’ve shown you guys more than once, I’m a sucker for anything Polaroid! So when I saw the Polaroid app on Google Play I just had to give it a go!

It’s been fun taking some of our vacation photos with the retro feel of Polaroid on my phone πŸ™‚


4. Sleep as Android


When I got this app I actually started to wish that either Simon or I talked in our sleep πŸ˜› Not so exciting to listen to recordings of caughing and turning. But I could definitely see a connection to when the app told me I had little deep sleep and how I felt during the day afterwards.

Sleep as Android lets you keep track of your sleeping and it works as an alarm and wakes you up when you’re out of your deepest sleep.


5. Sonic 1


Nostalgia!!! I used to play Sonic a lot when I was younger, and to be able to walk around with a big dose of nostalgia in my pocket is absolutely awesome!!

Travel back in time by the touch of a finger πŸ™‚


There you have it! My top 5 and most used apps of Junes!

I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what your favorite apps are πŸ™‚


Touch This – Top 5 Apps of May

There are times when I don’t feel like reading, writing or doing anything creative at all, and in times like that I usually reach out to my Samsung Galaxy Note II.

So today I’m going to share my top 5 apps of May. These are the apps that I used the most during the last month.

1. Nimble Quest

com.nimblebit.nimblequest516783a32c84fAs I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, I’m a huge fan of 8- and 16-bit games, so when I first saw this app in the Play Store I just had to try it out. And boy did it get me hooked on it! Nimble quest is an advanced version of the good old game of snake that I remember I just couldn’t stop playing on my Nokia 3210 πŸ˜› And I would be embarressed if I got to know how many hours I’ve put into this game.


2. Pinterest

mzl.ipgbmhvdNot wanting to do anything creative doesn’t mean that I’m not receptive for some inspiration! And that’s where Pinterest is so genius! I can easily find inspiration to new projects and save them for later with the touch of a finger. Love it!

You can follow me on Pinterest as well to see some of my creative projects. Just search for featherpen87 πŸ™‚

3. Pixel Hospital

Hospital-Story-01Another game that’s right up my alley! This game is pretty new to me, but one that I often find myself playing. In this game you’re in charge of a hospital and has to make sure that all of the patients get the treatment they need and leave as happy customers, and if you’re not quick at the touch here your patients will get unhappy and even die.

Simple and addictive πŸ˜›


4. PicsArt

picsart-photo-studioI take a lot of photos with my phone and I like to edit them from time to time so that I can give them that little extra more than the filters that Instagram provides. Here PicsArt is brilliant! And with the S-pen on the Note II it makes this app even more user friendly. It lets you edit and mace collages fast and easy with a gorgeous result. You can also share your finished result with other users through the PicsArt app and network.

5. goodreads

goodreadsgoodreads is an excellent site for everyone that loves to read. Here you see what your friends are reading at the moment and what they thought of it. And you can share all the books you’ve read with an own little review.

goodreads will also recommend books for you based on the books that you’ve given good ratings. This is brilliant for readers like me that often have the tendency to stick to just a few writers just because I don’t know where to start looking and I don’t want to buy books at total random.


So there you have it, my top 5 apps of May. Let me know what you think and if you have any apps to recommend for me then fire away!! I will try them out and get back to you!

I’m thinking about doing a list like this the first of every month, depending on how you readers respond to it πŸ™‚ I’ve seen that there’s been a lot of activity on my site lately and I’m so grateful for all of you guys that takes a trip into my little Geek Heaven!

Thank you!!!



New press shots of the Sony Xperia tablet

Just ahead of Sony’s launch on IFA Berlin there’s been a new leak of press shots.

What do the new pictures reveal? The 8 MP camera, and the 1 MP front-facing camera. We can also see the Walkman app. It appears that it’ll come with Ice Cream Sandwich as a default, but they might bump it up to Jelly Bean by the time it hits the stores.


We do know that it comes with a Tegra 3 processor. It will be available in 16 and 32 Gb. It’s thinner than the tablet s and like the tablet s it has its buttons hidden within the fold.

More details will come when IFA kicks off.
