Get Your Nut On with Noogra Nuts

I’ve never written about a game before. It’s not that I don’t like fun, I just don’t have much time to play games with my (not so) busy schedule. I’ve even been neglecting my Steam buddies for the last few weeks due to my schedule. My very busy schedule. Did I mention that I was busy?

What drew me the Noogra Nuts, developed by XDA member Oren Bengigi (user Obg1), is its simplicity and ability to be as addictive as many of the old 2D games that we all know and love. With a similar 2D engine to that of Pong or Brick Breaker, the aim of the game is to stop any falling nuts from hitting the ground, long enough that they will crack open and let you eat their delicious contents.

Now, this may sound like a game which is easy and lacks many pull factors. However, you’d be wrong. It’s popular, enjoyable, and a darn good challenge for one reason; You can never get all the nuts and you know you never will, but you can’t accept it!

This really is a game for those who want to kill a lot of time, and have a lot of fun doing so. If you would like to grab it yourself and show the developer some support, head to the original thread, hit up the Market, and leave a delightful message of gratitude for all those hours that you’ll now spend playing this game instead of World of Warcraft.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
