App Review: Snapper
I have played several flashcard memory style games on my Android devices, but Snapper is one of my favorites so far. Snapper comes in a free, lite version, and a full version for £0.59 (about a dollar). When you start up the game it has a very polished look. Game play is also very simple.
There are 2 modes available: Normal and Arcade. In the normal mode, you can set difficulty from the options screen and each level gets a little tougher. If you play on difficult, it takes no time at all for your screen to be full of cards to remember. The arcade mode will randomly generate boards both large and small. In this mode, you may start with four cards, then eight, ten, back to four. The normal mode, on the other hand, continues to get tougher with each level. It is timed, and you get bonus for finishing quickly. Snapper also allows you to post your score on Facebook automatically.
There is also an option to save your game during play by pressing the Menu button. According to Snapper’s website, the differences between the lite and full version are:
- The lite version is restricted to only the first three levels in normal mode, and only the first level in arcade mode.
- You cannot save the game in the lite version.
- The full version allows you to use downloadable image packs, which let you use themed images (cars, flags, etc.) for the cards.
- The peek bonus feature is disabled in the lite version.
I really don’t have anything negative to say about the game. It’s fun, easy and straight-forward.

The Developer Says: “FlexT9 powered by Dragon is a four-in-one keyboard experience that puts you in the driver’s seat for communicating how you want – when you want. And only FlexT9 gives you the power to seamlessly switch between the Speak. Trace. Write. Tap. input modes as easily as it is to flip on a light switch!”
What We Liked:
Dragon voice recognition lives up to its reputation, easily besting Google’s voice recognition accuracy.
As a tracing keyboard, FlexT9 is every bit as good as Swype (better at telling the difference between “in” and “on”), with a better UI for suggested words.
Before I begin my gushing discourse of the love I have for Sonos and it’s newly minted Android controller app, I have to diclose the fact that Sonos sent me a review unit to use, of which that I do not have to return to them. So simply put, I have to disclose that they gave me free stuff. That being said, they did not need to buy my love whatsoever, because using Sonos for me is like sitting a fat man down to a 15 course meal, with some magic thrown on top that makes it feel like he never gets full.
