Twinz! – Ad-Free
Concentration Style Match Game

If you have wanted an updated version of concentration to play on your smartphone then here you go.

This little app will allow you to kill a little time, while improving your memory.

Twinz! is a memory concentration game in which you flip pairs of tiles. When the images behind the doors match, they remain open and play continues, but if they do not match, the doors close. Remembering the pictures behind the doors is the key to earning points and advancing to the next level.
An App that Changes your Sudoku Experience

Unlike many traditional memory games, Twinz! features timed play, five distinct levels, three difficulty settings, and allows you to share your scores with other players around the world.

With the ability to share your scores this game brings in the aspect of competitive play, providing the user an opportunity to not just challenge themselves but to challenge others.

Unfortunately the HTC ARIA Android Update is not available for ICE CREAM as of yet, however, you can at least get your stock HTC Aria, up to 2.2 with the following ROMUpdate.  Be aware though after this update, I felt the phone was a tad bit more sluggish.  Also phone memo

ry is definitely less, as I have to be a little more active in App Management, not everything will run off the SD Card.


This software is an update for the HTC Aria™ for AT&T. Please note that during this update process, the device will be Hard Reset and anything that is NOT part of the Operating System (applications downloaded from Android Market, SMS/MMS, Email, etc)) will be permanently deleted; always make a point of backing up your devices data on a regular basis!
Note: All Music, Pictures, and Video are stored on the MicroSD card and will not be deleted during the update process. All applications downloaded from Market are linked to the Gmail account set up on the device and can be restored to the device using that Gmail account.

Just today I tried to install the free Amazon App of the Day, on my HTC Aria and it caused my phone to reset just like Jenga did.  Post here, if and when you find a solution.  otherwise, I’ll keep searching for one, and attempt to add my own soon!

Controlling the jet-powered delivery platform isn't easy!

Controlling the jet-powered delivery platform isn’t easy!

What do I look like, a delivery boy? (Or delivery girl?) That is exactly what you are in Kona’s Crate, an addicting, physics-based game for Android that makes toting packages fun.

NOTE: The rich 3D experience of Kona’s Crate requires a device with a fast processor. Some devices, such as the LG Optimus, HTC Hero, and myTouch 3G Slide, are not compatible with the game.

Same-Day Delivery

Your task is simple: transport mysterious crates to the impatient Chief Kona. However, your delivery vehicle is a jet-powered platform, which is a little trickier to use than a mailbag. Using your thumbs, give the thruster jets enough gas to get moving, then adjust as needed. Careful–don’t tip too much to one side or you’ll drop the precious package. Chief Kona can get quite testy if he doesn’t receive his goods in a timely manner, and you wouldn’t like the chief when he’s angry.

Neither Rain, Nor Sleet–Nor Dynamite?

At first the deliveries are quick and easy. But as you move through the 60-plus levels in three graphically rich environments, you’ll be forced to dodge floating blocks, avoid steam geysers, and watch out for TNT. Squeeze through the chief’s twisting hallways and turn sharp corners at blinding speeds using your reflexes to earn time and skill-based awards.Chief Kona is quite happy to receive his crate

Speaking of awards, Kona Crate connects directly with OpenFeint, where you can record your achievements and try to reach the global leaderboards. You also have the option of posting your best times and scores on Twitter and Facebook, showing your friends just how awesome a delivery boy you can be. Aloha!

I downloaded the Jenga App from Amazon App Store today, and lo and behold, I attempted to install it.  In attempting to install the application, it shut down my phone.  At first I thought it was a resource issue so I made sure and free up enough space on my phone before attempting it again.  No go.  So until Jenga provides an update that doesn’t crash our Android based phones, I won’t be able to tell you what I think.

This occured on an HTC ARIA, if you have a different brand that also exhibits the same symptons, post it below

and I’ll add it to the list.
