[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Star Wars: Force Arena is an action-adventure game featuring everyone’s favorite galaxy from far, far away. The game features third person, freemium style combat mechanics. You’ll have to assemble a team from 80 available characters. You’ll also be able to form guilds with friends, upgrade your characters, and you’ll be able to compete with other players to earn in-game rewards. It’s a freemium game through and through so make sure to temper your expectations accordingly.
[Price: Free] Posture is an application that tries to modernize your posture. The app theorizes that we look at our phones an average of 85 times a day. As it turns out, we’ve probably been doing it all wrong. The app uses the sensors in your phone to detect when you’re holding the phone in a neck-straining position. It will then let you know and you can adjust accordingly. The ultimate goal is to improve your posture while using your phone. It’s completely free if you want to try it out.
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links is the latest game in the popular card collecting franchise. Like most games that came before it, this title is a card collecting title. You’ll have to collect cards and build decks that you’ll then use to duel against opponents. There is a campaign mode as well as an online PvP as you’d expect. The mechanics are simple enough to learn but still has a bit of depth for those who want to seriously play. However, it is a freemium game and certainly plays like one.
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Weather Wiz is a new weather app that’s also still in beta. It covers the basic features, including temperature, the feels-like temperature, forecasts, UV indexes, and other things like that. Like most, there are also weather widgets, support for weather tracking for multiple cities, and more. The design is simply done and actually looks pretty good. There are also themes that you can apply if you want to that cost $0.99 each. It’s a solid weather app and it could get even better before the beta was over.
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] It was only a matter of time before someone cashed in on the Grumpy Cat meme. The game is called Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever and it’s essentially a game of mini-games. You can do a little fishing game, eat food, break boards, and various other little games. You can get high scores on leaderboards, win little in-game items, and share your progress with your friends on social media. It’s a pretty fun little time waster if you need something to kill a few minutes.
