Daily App Sales Roundup – 10-08-2012

Heads up on a sort of special, Splashtop has just released Splashtop 2 HD and for a limited time it’s free of charge. It’s going to go to a paid yearly subscription service but for now it’s free so not a bad chance to try it out and see what it’s like.

Just saw a game in the market called Run Fatty Run. It’s another running game like Temple Run etc. The twist on this game is that you are a rather overweight man who has to run, barge and roll his way through levels avoiding a tiger whilst collecting snacks and basically trying to survive. It costs $0.99 and looks like fun, it has 3D graphics and runs on anything from Android 2.0.1 and upwards.

I use a combination of Google Calendar, Latitude, Google Talk and various other non-Google apps to syncronise schedules etc with my wife but there is a new app called HeyWe! Family that is looking to roll a large proportion of these services into one app for the whole family. It allows you to sync calendars, share location, chat via instant messaging, create lists. It is a paid service that starts out with a free 30 day trial but as yet the in-app purchasing isn’t active so no idea how much it will be to use.

If you know of a good app you’d like to share or see an app on sale that you feel is a good deal, let me know by tweeting me or emailing me

    Hey Daniel,

    I think you’ve started posting articles to both the regular RSS feed and the podcast RSS feed?? Just a heads-up!

    • Daniel Tyson

      Cheers, Just checked the Podcast feed : http://ausdroid.net/feed/podcast/ and couldn`t see it, where did you see it just so I can double check?

      • http://www.facebook.com/brianhislop Brian Hislop

        Hmm. Now I’m unsure of what I’m smokin’.

        I’m using that rss feed in Google Reader and it is showing podcasts until August 1st, then it jumps to August 9th and starts showing everything from the site (from “Acer Iconia A501 – Ice Cream Sandwich update being received now” on … yet when I go to the podcast url direct and download the XML, it is just the correct podcast XML file, without the new stuff showing up.
        I have no idea :(

    Hah, Splashtop is being crucified in the comments because iOS buyers get lifetime access, while Android buyers have to buy again next year.
