Angry Birds Celebrate the Holidays. (Game contains no-ads)

Angry Birds Seasons

The holidays have arrived, but the Angry Birds still can’t catch a break from the tricks of those greedy green pigs. Whether it’s Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or St. Patrick’s Day, the pigs’ hunger for poached eggs isn’t sated by festivities. Join the flock as they get angry all over again in Angry Birds Seasons.

Like in the original Angry Birds, the pigs hoodwink the peace-loving flock out of their precious eggs, leaving them with nothing but a powerful thirst for revenge. It’s time to bring back their unique brand of weaponry–the finger-powered slingshot–and unleash an arsenal of angry artillery in this package of four seasonal adventures for the world’s most popular physics-based casual game.

See climates whiz past as you soar through the air towards those greedy swine: destroy their new seasonally-themed bases with your feathery firepower, good aim, and plenty of holiday cheer.

Angry Birds Seasons

Mortal enemies embrace the holiday spirit with a very brief truce.

In Trick or Treat, the pigs cleverly utilize a bedsheet to scare the birds and distract them from their eggs. Fly through lantern-lit clearings surrounded by creepy trees, frightening full moons, and pig-filled pumpkins as you turn ham into bacon in over 45 spooky stages.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Season’s Greedings, but there’s no jolliness in this bird nest. The pigs may dress up as Santa Claus and come bearing gifts, but it’s all a trick. Plow through the snow and ice in over 25 days of yuletide revenge.

Love is in the air in Hogs and Kisses: get close enough to blow the pigs a kiss before you blow them away. Break through the sticks and stones and kill the pigs with kindness in over 18 heartwarming levels.

In the most recent update for Angry Birds Seasons, it’s time to Go Green, Get Lucky. The pigs will need more than four-leaf clovers, buckled hats, and tempting pots o’ gold to distract the birds. Forget the shillelagh. Use the birds themselves to lay the smackdown in more than 18 levels of exciting emerald action.

Don’t forget to check out the Angry Birds Plush Toys and share the love with your very own angry bird or pig.

Review: Launcher 7 for Android

A Windows Phone 7 style launcher for Android.

Launcher 7 Screenshot

Unlike other current WP7 launchers (Windows Phone Android, Metro UI), this one allows you to properly modify your start screen. Just long press on a tile and drag tile where you want!

Ad-free version of Launcher 7.

If you want to try, go download the free version first and see how it fares. If you can’t stand the ads, Paid version is for you :)

Same warnings apply here. It may crash, it may surprise you pleasantly. You have been warned.

Launcher 7 Settings

Also supported:

Paid Version:

- 1×1, 2×1 and 1×2 tiles.
– tile bitmaps can cover the whole tile
– widgets on tiles
– tile reordering
– live contacts tile

Free Version:

- 2 x 1 tiles
- Original Windows Phone 7 backgrounds!
- Freely configurable tile colors
- Launcher options are available from Application List (press menu in app list)
- Layout animations
- Animated contacts tile! (still work in progress)

Launcher 7 Homescreen Settings

TODO-list:

Paid Version:

- wp7 style notification bar (soon, very soon)
- configurable animation parameters (soon)
- app filtering to app list
- folders
- clock tile of sorts
- more animated tiles
- facebook integration

Free Version:

- configurable animation parameters (soon)
- app filtering to app list
- folders
- clock tile of sorts
- more animated tiles
- facebook integration

Consider this as alpha quality at best. If it crashes, please email developer to report the crash and they’ll figure out a fix.

Recommended HDPI device, tested on Galaxy i9000.

MDPI devices should be now able to show things in correct scale, but performance and memory usage may very well be a problem in these devices.

Name That Tune

Shazam uses the microphone on your mobile device to sample the music and analyzes it against an immense database of music, seeking a match based on an acoustic fingerprint. Once Shazam identifies the song, it displays the song title, album, genre, label, and tells you when and where you tagged the song.

Tag the Songs That You Love

A bounty of options become available: preview and purchase the song or album online via Amazon MP3, share your new finding with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter, text message, or e-mail, or learn more about the music by reading track and album reviews or viewing the song lyrics.

Shazam also keeps a log of every music track you tag so that you can refer to your tags later. Additional features include a tag chart that lets you see what songs other people are tagging, band tour information, Shazam blog posts, videos via YouTube, and artist bios. If you don’t have a current data connection, store pending tags for later analysis. Use the Shazam widget to tag straight from your home screen and discover songs Shazammers around the world are tagging with the live Tag Stream feature.
