TheoTown is another SimCity like city-building game

I told you. The pixel art style in mobile games is slowly becoming a trend. Instead of really stunning graphics and colors, such games will show more pixels (squares) in a retro kind of way. If you're a fan of SimCity, you'll be glad to know there's a new version that will probably bring you back to 1989 when SimCity was first released. In TheoTown, you can do anything you want. Build more houses, develop more buildings, schools, parks, and more. It's up to you how to make the town more enticing to live in.

Fleksy will now be free for users on all platforms, and they promise it will be forever.

Omni Swipe (ex Lazy Swipe) update: locked screen, better search, etc

The bigger our smartphone screens get, the harder it becomes to use it with just one hand. We told you about an app a few months ago that will help you with that problem. Back then, it was called Lazy Swipe, but since then, it has been renamed Omni Swipe (probably because not everyone who wants to use the app is actually lazy). The newest update to the app brings better search functionality, random wallpapers for your display, and other minor improvements as well.
