We're back with a look at the world of mobile apps and games again, with a decent selection this week.
Our picks this time include Google Play Music, a real estate game that uses real-world locations and Uber's Universal Windows 10 app.
Google Play Music hits SA
Sure, the Google Play Music app is available as a local music player, but the online functionality is finally available in SA.
Users can upload thousands of their tracks to Google Play Music at no cost and can also listen to streaming radio stations. Paid users can use the service for on-demand access to 30 million tracks, as well as further offline functionality.
Described by Android Police as a mashup of Crossy Road and Flappy Bird, Mad Aces is another endless-running game.
The title sees you flying through space, dodging or smashing through obstacles in your way. Much like Crossy Road, you can expect some unlockable characters (although you'll need to pay for some).
We quite like developer Nitrome's titles, featuring some addictive gameplay and simple mechanics.
GoPogo is the latest game from the studio, tasking you with hopping through a series of levels. You'll need to carefully control your leaps to make any progress though, while also watching out for gaps and crumbling platforms.
Focus by Firefox
Apple's iOS9 comes with support for ad-blocking apps, with Firefox's Focus app being the latest release.
Focus offers quite a few settings to tinker with, allowing you to block ad and analytic trackers, for one. Expect to see some speed and data usage improvements as a result.
Focus by Firefox is available for free on iOS.
Landlord: Real Estate Tycoon
I'm not one for management-type games, but this is a rather unique take on property management.
Landlord allows you to purchase real-world venues when you visit them and also allows you to perform upgrades to said venues (such as WiFi or VIP areas). It's a rather unique concept and definitely has potential to be big.
There aren't many great music creation apps on mobile, but Stagelight hopes to fill the gap.
The app offers tutorials, audio editing, audio importing/recording, built-in instruments and a host of other features. So if you're a budding DJ or producer, it might be worth a look.
Stagelight is available for free on Android, with in-app purchases too.
Uber for Windows 10
We're slowly starting to see Universal Apps being released on Microsoft's platforms, with Uber being the latest one.
Uber's new app is available for the latest desktop, tablet and Windows 10 Mobile builds, so grab those system updates before you download the app.
Uber for Windows 10 is available for free on the Microsoft Store.
