3 Great Smartphone Apps
May 21, 2012
Let’s be honest. One of the big reasons you purchased a smartphone was because of the amazing apps that make your life easier and more fun. Here are 3 Great Smartphone Apps we highly recommend you download or purchase:
Angry Birds Space
For those of you who might have been bored by the last few versions of Angry Birds, you are in for quite the treat. Angry Birds Space introduces a whole new dynamic with space-based physics. Experience zero gravity and trick shots using centrifugal force in 60 new levels. The Exynos Dual/Quad Core processors are more than capable of graphical requirements of this game. Some CPU’s struggle to operate Angry Birds, resulting in a choppy frame rate. The high CPU performance helps render the beautifully detailed backgrounds and make gameplay silky smooth. And the audio codec helps you hear every smash, crack, and explosion as you fling the birds towards those dastardly swine.
Google Maps With Navigation
Never carry a map again with this fantastic app developed by Google. Find streets, restaurants and even indoor maps for select airports, hotels, retail stores, and more. There are a lot of computations your phone has to perform to make this app function as well as it does. It has to constantly check live traffic information, render 3D buildings, and produce live turn-by-turn directions for driving, public transit, biking, and walking. Processors like the Exynos 4 Dual/Quad and Exynos 5 Dual have powerful CPU cores, which make that kind of processing easy. All that processing takes a huge toll on a phone’s battery, which is why it’s so good to have a power-efficient Exynos processor. And the GPU performance handles map graphics extremely well, helping to make sure you don’t get lost.
Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro?
Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro is another app that makes use of the powerful CPU core, which makes running app smoothly. This app acts as your very own personal trainer. Track time, distance, speed, calories burned, and more. Create your own interval programs, interact with graphs showing your speed and lap times, and get real time pep talks from friends following you live. GPS is also important with this app. It helps track your route or one you’ve downloaded. It even includes a Low Power Mode to increase battery standby time. Pairing this with a power-efficient Exynos processor will help make sure your phone runs longer than you.
You can find more great apps for your smartphone in the Android App Store as part of Google Play.
