Plants vs. Zombies

I didn't expect this game to be as fun as it is.  I downloaded it because it was free for a limited time and I kind of expected to end up uninstalling but I was pleasantly surprised.

The gameplay is easy to figure out.  Basically, zombies shamble towards your house and you have to try to stop them by using plants.  You get different types of plants as you go through the levels.  There are some that shoot peas, some that have effects like slowing zombies down, cherry bombs that explode, and so on.  The amount you can plant is dictated by how many sun points you have to spend and you can plant sunflowers to give you more sun points.

Overall Plants vs. Zombies is fun to play and puts a good spin on tower defense gameplay.  I think its worth checking out if you don't mind paying a bit for a decent game.

Hmm, I just noticed that at the time of this writing it doesn't appear to be available in the android marketplace.  I got it through a special offer that isn't available anymore.  Any readers with an iphone, ipad, or similar should be able to get it, but android users may have to wait or find an alternative place to purchase it from.  There is an android version of it though since it works on my phone just fine.  Look around and maybe you'll even find it for free.

Here's a neat little app that's good for getting into poking wars with your friends on facebook.  You need to configure facebook settings to send you a text message whenever you get poked, and then autopoke will instantly poke the person back for you right away.

This app runs in the background and does it's job quite well.  There are no settings or anything to configure.  Just run it once and it'll do it's job.

My friends don't know how I'm always able to poke them back at all hours of the day and night and it's funny when they try to outpoke me.

It isn't especially useful or anything but it's a good app for a bit of humour.

So much for "daily" app reviews.

I've been gone a long time due to personal problems, so I haven't been posting anything here for a while but I should be able to get back to it in the days to come. I don't see a need to go into details since this isn't a personal blog but suffice to say that I will be back to posting more reviews in the very near future.  Thanks for understanding and sorry about the lapse.

Instant Heart Rate

I like this app more than I probably should.  It isn't especially fun or useful to me, but every time I open open it, I feel so very impressed with the current state of technology.

Barcode Scanner

If you've been wondering how to scan those QR codes you see from time to time (like the ones posted on here) then Barcode Scanner is a good solution. 

With this handy app you can scan regular barcodes on products and look up pricing and reviews.  If you scan a book's barcode you can search inside the book for a word and find where it occurs (if the book is on

Or you can scan QR codes which can store anything from contact info, URLs, SMS or plaintext messages, and more.  If you see a QR code on this site to download an app that you want, you can just scan your monitor and it'll take you to the place to download the app.

Usage of Barcode Scanner is pretty straightforward and easy to figure out.  The only downside to it could be the fact that it does not retain a history of previous scans.  Personally I'm not sure if that's a drawback or not, since I'm not sure I'd want it to keep a history.

So, should you download barcode scanner? The answer to that question lies in this QR code:

Angry Birds

If you have a smartphone, you probably already know about this game.  But if you haven't played it yet, here's my take on it.

I'm posting this etirely from my phone using the Blogger app.  It seems pretty well set up and easy to use. 

It seems to have a few less options than using a computer.  I wish it could schedule posts to go up at a later time, but aside from the minor drawbacks it is pretty convenient and can access my camera so I can take pictures and put em on here easily...If I wanted to.

Here's a screenshot I just took:

And the QR code to download the app. 

I won't make all my posts this way, but is is nice to have the option.

Mission Statement

I'm starting up a this new blog which will be reviewing software.  Mostly I'll be covering apps for the Android OS but we'll see how it goes.  Hopefully I'll be able to help people find some cool new apps to try out.  Check back later for my first review.  I should be posting something new every day.
