Now the sequel is available on Android for just $15.99 in the Play Store. Of course the majority of mobile gamers won’t be seeking to purchase this game as it’s really meant for loyal Final Fantasy and RPG fans.

Moves, a lighter take on fitness, now available in the Play Store

Moves_App_Large_Icon

If you’re looking for a simple way to track how far you walk, run, or cycle, then I highly recommend Moves. Rather than having to input what you’re going to be doing, Moves uses the accelerometer in the background to detect how you’re moving.

What makes the app by developer ProtoGeo so appealing is the user interface. Your travel is recorded into an easy-to-read downward stream, and thanks to Foursquare’s data, you can select the places you have been. Icons will appear in the stream based on these locations, and will get longer based on the duration of your stay. The top of the screen is where you can see how long you have walked, cycled, or ran. If you’re interested in this intuitive new app, hit the break for download links.

Call_Heads_Large_Icon_01

This whole “chat head” concept is becoming pretty popular now, as we’re seeing a number of apps inspired by the same layover-type interface that seemingly works for pretty much anything.

A new app called “CallHeads” gives users the option to use a bubble to display any incoming calls while the user is in the middle of using a concurrent application. You can pull the bubble to different sides of the screen to tell it whether you want to pick up the call, ignore it, or postpone it.

When taking a picture with your phone, now you won’t have to worry about a call coming in and ruining that perfect Kodak moment. More screens and download links after the break.
