Test Your English Skills with Typo

r u mad bro wen ppl talk lyk dis? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, I may have had a mild aneurysm as a result of the preceding sentence. No matter how facile you are with the language, however, there are always undoubtedly some weak spots. For many, this is unearthed in the spellings of unfamiliar words. For others, it’s differentiating between homonyms. Whatever the case, it’s always good to get a little more practice.

To aid in one’s quest towards literary perfection, XDA Forum Member The Waswas created the edutainment title Typo! As its name alludes, the game tests your skills in determining which commonly misspelled words are written incorrectly. It also tests punctuation and grammar, albeit considerably less frustratingly so. After all, fullfil seems legit, right?

Typo! is useful in teaching some of the basics to young kids and non-native speakers in a fun way, as well as frustrating for your less verbally inclined friends. Whatever the case, your English test is waiting for you over in the game thread.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration.
