Editor’s Picks: 15 of our favorite Android apps and games (May 28)

    Hello SMS

    hello sms

    This is a replacement messaging app that can be used in place of the stock android app. It provides a better looking and better messaging experinece due to its design and layout. Hello SMS uses tabs to organise your chats so you can easily swap back and forth between messages. It has a clear layout that is not cluttered and can be navigated with ease allowing you to quickly type multiple messages with ease.

    We would recommend this app just based on looks alone as its really nice, but the tabs feature is something different and not seen in many other SMS apps. It is a very functional way of managing your messages. – READ MORE

    Zombie Gunship


    Still sticking with the recent zombie trend? Perhaps mowing down zombies fits your fancy. Well we’ve got an app for you! You get to be the gunner of an AC 130 gunship with the objective of saving all the living from menacing zombies. That’s right, you take to the skies to defeat hordes of zombies!

    There are multiple levels with different objectives, but essentially you have to kill zombies using a variety of weapons on the gunship of which you can upgrade as you progress. Its very much like the gunship missions in “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” where you target through night vision and thermal image to locate the zombies. This is a great game that will waste hours of your time, but not get boring either. We highly recommend it!
