Blocks For Kidstype: casual :: virtual toy / education
screenshot #1

screenshot #3

Actually this is not a game, it is more of a playable virtual toy. There is no winner, no loser, no objective and no points. It is intended for small kids. No reading skill is required. But even adults can find it engaging. The goal is to allow the user to freely express imagination and creativity. One can build anything using chosen blocks. Program simulates realistic physical environment with gravity and mass, so it teaches some basic mechanics on an intuitive level and it also aids in development of hand-eye coordination. If there is not enough or too many blocks one can open a menu (right upper button) and add some more or remove some not needed. To add a new block (there is upper limit on that) simply drag a new block from menu and put it somewhere. To remove a block drag it into upper trashcan. To clear all blocks click bottom trashcan (the one with an explosion mark). To change color (before picking a block) click one of the colors in menu. Blocks For Kids is intentionally made simple, so there are only few block types and colors to choose from. For more fun there are three modes of gravity: normal, strong and low.

Note for Android users: Please note that the program is intended / designed mostly for tablets. It will work on smaller screens, but the experience may not be satisfactory.

Platforms: Android (at least 2.1), PC/Windows with DirectX.

Burmese Syllablestype: casual :: quiz / education

screenshot #3

This game is quiz-like. Learn and practice the basics of Burmese alphabet and have fun doing it! Match Burmese syllables with their English counterparts. You have limited time for each round, so think fast. On each level there is less time and more options to choose from. You have three lives - you can make only three mistakes before the game is over. After you've lost the game will display your mistakes and show correct answers.
To learn more press the LEARN button on the main screen and visit the school where you will find information and explanation about Burmese alphabet. The lessons are basic, but they provide a clean picture of how Burmese alphabet looks, how it is divided into groups and which syllables are which. The game provides phonetic notation in IPA standard that formally describes the pronunciation. Also you can hear how do the main 25 syllables sound in Burmese.

Note for Android users: Please note that the program is intended / designed mostly for tablets. It will work on smaller screens, but the experience may not be satisfactory.

    Bubble Taptype: casual :: arcade
    screenshot #1

    screenshot #3

    Many people like popping the bubble wrap. Do you? Whenever you have to wait with nothing to do, nothing to occupy your mind and you can't stand being idle, whenever you are bored this game is for you. Whenever you attend a boring lecture that you cannot leave but don't care much for the subject this game is for you. It is beautifuly mindless and very simple but addictive. All you need to do is to tap bubbles. They pop up randomly from the center of the screen. And you tap, tap, tap... They never end popping up! Standard bubble is for 1 point, big one is for 2. Extras include two bonuses: the gold for 10 points (tap it quickly because it will disappear) and the nuke for 1 point which when tapped will blow every bubble in its vicinity (but will not ignite other nukes). Level goes up automatically after some time and with it bubbles pop faster and there is more of them. When the FILL reaches 100% (or a little above) the game is over. Note: on devices that handle multi-touch you can tap many bubbles at once.

    Note for Android users: Please note that the program is intended / designed mostly for tablets. It will work on smaller screens, but the experience may not be satisfactory.

    YAP Puzzletype: casual :: puzzle

    screenshot #3

    YAP stands for 'Yet Another Puzzle'. Yet another but quite cool - you can use your own images. The objective is simple - solve a puzzle as fast as you can. But the fun is real. If it seems too easy, try harder levels. You can select one of 10 built-in images to solve or copy own images to game folder and use them instead. You can select level - from easy where the image is divided into 3x3 tiles to hard 9x9 (a little 6x6 less for Android). On Android you simply tap to select a tiles and slide it into different (possibly proper) place. On Windows: use mouse or shift + cursor keys or ZCXS to select a tiles, move it with mouse or cursor keys. When you move a tile into a new position the one that was there before swaps places with the moved one. When a tile is in its proper place you will notice a sound and golden flash. Note that tiles are not locked when they reach the right place, you have to develop a strategy to avoid unnecessary moves. Also there is in-game menu, with options to see an image preview and mark good or bad tiles for a while.

    The game allows you to use your own images in png and jpg formats (based on file extension: png, jpg, jpe, jpeg). On Android simply put your images in a folder (depending what your external storage path is) something like /sdcard/noniewicz.com/yappuzzle/images. This folder is automatically created by the game and filled with game's built-in images. Please make sure that your images are not too big in size. Optimal / recomended image dimensions are 800x600 to 1024x768.

    screenshot #3
    This is quite a classic of puzzle games. I personally love this one so I wanted to have one of my own design created for Android. The most notable fact is that it took me only 4 days to create it from scratch. I do hope you will enjoy it as much as I do...
    Gems of different colors pop up and you can slide them. If you put a row of five or more gems of the same color (horizontal, vertical, diagonal) they disappear and you score points. If the board is full the game is over. Gray gems (on level 1 only) act as 'jokers' and substitute any color. You can undo last move. You can also select one of five gem sets.

    This simple app allows you to export contacts, SMS messages and calls from your phone to a file on SD card, Various export formats are available: CSV, TXT, XML. In case of CSV format you can choose required separator (comma, semicolon, tab). This app is designed for advanced users who wish to further process this data on their own (for example bill customers for consultation time). I originally created it for myself but decided it may be useful for others as well. Data is exported in pretty raw format just as it appears on the device (and this MAY vary). Some additional fields are provided to "translate" some data (like call direction or datetime) into human readable format. Files are named like:
    myCalls-20160227-1431.csv
    myCalls-20160227-1428.xml
    myContacts-20160227-1429.xml
    mySMS-20160227-1431.csv
    etc, with date and time of their export.
    Application is available in following languages: English, Polish, German, Spanish, French.
    Please note that phones typically store only up to 500 last calls.
