We're due for another look at the world of mobile applications this week, and we've got plenty of programs on-hand.
This week's feature has a football management title, dream application and a neat Twitter client.
Football Manager Handheld 2012
Originally released for PCs and consoles, the critically acclaimed Football Manager series now makes its way to Android and iOS devices.
Despite the 'Handheld' in the title, this iteration is almost as full-featured as its cousins, featuring leagues from nine countries (namely Australia, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Wales).
Ever wanted to influence your dreams? No? Ah well, this iPhone app is still pretty neat nonetheless, detecting when you enter REM sleep and then playing different sounds.
So for instance, it plays anything from a space shuttle sound to paparazzi and other sound effects, with users spending $1 on additional scenarios.
The base app is free however, so you've got nothing to lose by queuing up this download.
Available exclusively for Android tablets, the free Google Currents news-reading application is one of the smoothest apps available for the platform. Yet, in a weird twist of fate, it's not available to South African users.
Nevertheless, to download the application, you should first enable app downloads from third parties. To do this, visit "settings", "applications" and then tick the "unknown sources" box.
A simple Google search for "google currents apk" should lead you in the right direction, letting you bypass Google's region restriction.
Twitter clients are everywhere these days, but there's a lot of debate as to which app is the best. glƏƏk! for Windows Phone is just the latest app and brings a lot to the table.
One of the more innovative things about this app is that it lets you mute users for a certain amount of time. For instance, if your friend is tweeting at an event, you could set the app to mute all his tweets for the next two hours.
glƏƏk! has plenty of other features, such as deep Live Tile integration and multiple accounts. The app is available as a free trial and for $1.99.
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Capcom's classic 2D brawler has appeared on Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, but the latest platform to see a release is iOS.
The well-received brawler is set for a 25 April release, with pricing not available yet. Nevertheless, it's definitely one to keep an eye on.
A simple drawing application for the iPad, Paper is polished enough to make it quite possibly the best drawing app around.
Paper opts for a minimalistic user-interface, with one tool and a few colours available at the outset. Users will need to spend a few dollars to unlock other tools and colours though.
Formerly known as Read-It-Later, Pocket lets you save articles and other content for offline viewing - a neat trick for when you're travelling or thrifty with your airtime.
