2. Data Sync [FREE] [$2.69]
In the pipelines thisÂ weekÂ has been a data sync manager in its beta stages that I gave a download. IÂ didn'tÂ like how it was implemented so I went in Google Play and thought that there had to be some app that did the same or similar. I wanted a Titanium BackUp type app that could sync between devices. I want to unlock all levels of Angry Birds Space on my HTC Droid DNA, then be able to pick up my Nexus 7 and start where I left off. Data Sync was theÂ answerÂ to my prayers and brought a lot more.
(YOU MUST BE ON A ROOTED DEVICE FOR THIS APP TO WORK)
Data Sync enables you to back up your data for every single one of your apps. Once youÂ QueÂ what you want to backup, it can beÂ transferredÂ to your SD card, Box account, Dropbox account, or even anotherÂ deviceÂ with DataSync on the same local Wireless network. It workedÂ seamlesslyÂ for me and I loved how fast andÂ efficientÂ it was. The DataSync + can do a bevy of others things like set up auto sync schedules and even sync once you close a game. One feature although in its Â beta stage is that it can sync also through NFC...very cool. This is a great Back up and IÂ willÂ beÂ definitelyÂ using this in the future. download this today!
3. Lep's World 2 [FREE]
Super Mario Bros clones are aplenty in the Play Store. Lep'sÂ WorldÂ definitelyÂ takes the crown asÂ theÂ best one out. Lep's World 1 and Lep's World 2 are both fun and very entertaining. Platform done right and there is plenty to love about this. The sprite happy graphics areÂ brightÂ and are vibrant and not too overdone. TheÂ mechanicsÂ are veryÂ simpleÂ with left right arrows keys to move Lep and a dedicated jump button. There is also an acorn button to throw acorns at enemies as well. Though Lep's world 2 may look similar to its original but the music is different and it also adds the element of swimming stages. Download this game today and hopefully it brings you back to the Super Mario days as it did I.
