Top 5 Apps to Check Out This Weekend: Star Wars, Shire Defense, and More

While we await the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere, aside from watching all the previous episodes of the epic Star Wars space opera, the best thing we can do is enter this stunning world by playing the game. Of course, this should only take only 98 percent of your free time. For the rest, I have picked a few more apps, so without further ado, here is my recipe for this weekend.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

Electronic Arts (EA) has released Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, a turn-based battle game, which allows players to collect characters from across the Star Wars universe, including the original trilogy and prequels. You can collect characters from both the light and dark sides and create your ultimate team. What are you waiting for? Download Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes now from the App Store/Google Play for free.


Shire Defense

This fantasy tower strategy game takes you to the battlefield in Shire Defense to defend your shire against invading zombies, wizards, warriors, mages, and much much more. You’ll travel across 25 worlds, battle in five environments, and face other challenges. Download Shire Defense for free from the App Store.



There is an app you definitely need on your iPhone or iPad: a great video player playing all formats – that’s nPlayer. The video player officially supports DTS and Dolby audio codecs and Dolby mobile surround sound alongside other noteworthy features. Forget about converting video files to MP4 to play them on your device. nPlayer costs $4.99 from the App Store and is available for both Phone and iPad.


Morning Rituals

For those who may be unaware, the most successful people follow a morning routine that helps them focus on key activities and progress in life. I think you should spend some time on yourself as well, and there is an app that could help to keep you focused. Morning Routine lets you build, adjust, and track your morning routine to create great habits in your life. Download Morning Rituals from the App Store (it costs $2.99) and stay focused.



There are times when you need to access a media file right away, but you can’t, because it’s on your computer. Younity aims to fill this gap: It grants you access to all your media on your computer right from your iPhone or iPad. All you need to do is download the free app to your mobile and desktop device, and you are good to go. Download Younity from the App Store.
