Five for Friday: Android apps based on summer blockbuster movies

With the summer coming to an end in the next few weeks, it’s that time of the year where movie theaters start to empty out a bit.  With school starting and the eventual end of the blockbuster season, we thought we’d put together a list of apps to remind you of your favorite popcorn flicks.  This way you can relive some of the best moments and films of 2012 without forking over a chunk of change.

We’ve come up with five Android apps based around movies that were pretty popular this summer.  As is the case with all lists of these types, we are going to leave a few things off the table.  Try as we might, we cannot possibly get everyone’s favorites.  That’s where you come in, at the end.

Be sure to let us know which movie-based apps and games you enjoy the most.  Was it one of these five or is it something else altogether?

This week: Android apps based on summer blockbuster movies
