Remember it well on the C64, mint game and sound effects will give it a whirl ;)

Edit: Wow just wow, not the same as original but really great for what it is i don't usually play games on android but this is a keeper for a quick blast every now and again :)

If you play it in landscape it's more like the original.

Found a really nice game called Lightopus. Occasionally lags a bit but is playable, and looks great.

Virgin TV Guide. https://play.google....S50dmd1aWRlIl0.

OK this app sucks, but it does work although it is very laggy and can be a bit annoying.

If you have Virgin Media TiVo then this App is a must, even though you will have to experiment with the reliability of setting up recordings. I have found that if you set a program to record twice then this works best and hasn't failed me so far, but trying to record a program that has already started with this app has never been successful for me.

I have to say though that I do use this app all the time when I'm out or when I'm upstairs gaming on my PS3 .. I mean why go all the way downstairs to setup a recording when I can use my G300 :) . I usually have my TiVo Hdd running at 90% capacity. Also in your house, if you have to compete for the remote or recording time, then you can beat everyone with this app and you don't even have to be in the house lol.. brilliant :D .

A great app is SnapPea, it's a remote manager but you can also send messages, move apps and uninstall them over USB Wi-Fi and their internet app too

Not sure if this app has been posted before but for it does it's definitely winner..IMediashare

If you need app that will stream anything form anywhere on the net (as well files from your phone ) to your smart tv ( in my case WdTvLlive) this is must have...

I was a bit sceptic about it because been looking around for some quite time to find way to stream to my tv and there's lot of apps saying they can do it but turns out they just want your MONEY for s*it unusable apps..

This one does what it says...recommend streaming app...

ES file explorer has changed, not sure if I like the new look, was one of my favourite apps before the update. Not sure what has changed and what has stayed.

Any thoughts on the new version, would be interested to hear.

It got loads better for me. Stuff is in different places. Root seems to be temporary, but that's cool. Lots if system integrated features added. Design is excellent... I've deleted the original I love this beta so much.

FL Studio Mobile

https://play.google....WxpbmUuRkxNIl0.

cant believe this is actually on a phone :o

I spotted that, very interested but didn't splash out. Would love to *cough* try it tho. (Edit: this turns out to be more possible now than last time I looked...)

2 apps that i found very usable for me....

Quick boot ..https://play.google....kboot&hl=en

Very simple yet very fast to boot in reboot,recovery,bootloader power down in matter of seconds (if not a second itself)... :D

Fast Uninstaller..https://play.google....nN0YWxsZXIiXQ..

This is amazing app to uninstall apps so fast compared to original one from your system (so slow you have to admit)..I use this app in daily bases since I'm trying apps pretty much every day..try it see it for yourself..

Hi guys,

This in not a new app but defiantly one I would be lost without.

App backup and restore. It only backs up the apk file, so no data to get corrupted or re-downloading when switching ROMs ( which I do a lot lol )

Here is one for you app lovers.

There's a great app called Greenify for those who are trying to get a bit more battery life and a little less lag from your device, some of you may have heard of but for those that haven't it is certainly worth a try.

Say goodbye to having to freeze apps or un-install an app because it uses a lot of battery in the background... now you can just greenify the app!

WARNING : Not a new app but Nav Free has been updated.

https://play.google....251bGwsMSwyLDNd

From my experience DO NOT UPDATE yet. It used to be a great free GPS app with the maps stored on your phone. The new update means you have to re-download all your maps again. Their servers are not up to the job and keep crashing and its causing the occasional reboot of the phone in the process.

I will certainly use it again when they fix the problems but in the meantime they have just ruined a great app.

EDIT: PS. +1 for Greenify , Cyda!

EDIT 2: I think they have fixed the server problem. All working now after 2 days of trying. It still took over 10 minutes to download the 400MB file for UK maps over fast wifi.
