Forget about the December rush for a moment; it’s the weekend (again), and that means you have all the time in the world to have with your loved ones and share moments of joy. But then again, reserve a few minutes to yourself as well, because there are some great apps I think you’re going to love. So, here is my recipe for this weekend.


With StarDroid, the future is now. You are a robot with a very important mission: to board unnamed spaceships drifting around aimlessly in the galaxy and destroy them to save the galaxy’s traffic. StarDroid is a great mix of action game, puzzle, and explorer. Download StarDroid ($0.99) from the App Store.

This game is a new and improved version of the beloved Monster Math (named the “Best Math App” by PC Advisor UK), and its magic is in the way it turns Common Core math standards into a fun adventure. Monster Math 2 has four worlds to explore and 20+ characters that will help k-5 students practice common core aligned math skills. Download Monster Math 2 ($5.99) from the App Store. To celebrate the launch of this suite of Monster Math 2 apps, developer Makkajai is giving away $500 worth of iTunes gift cards! Tweet or share a Facebook message explaining what you love in the app before December 20, 11.59 p.m., PST.


Planet Earth is in trouble! c. Only YOU, as a member of the few remnants of a dismantled military, can save the world! Run and survive! Download ZED, a free game from the App Store.

ZEDThe Walls

It may feature a simple design, but it certainly challenges your skills: You need to tap at the right time to move a ball along a thin platform to reach the exit and collect gems to unlock new balls. The ball moves automatically, but try not to fall off the edges! Download The Walls for free from the App Store or Google Play.


We all read the news, but how about a news story that incorporates a healthy amount of context? You know how rapidly the news is produced – you are surrounded with info from every angle – which gives rise to confusion and even mis-information. Timeline works differently: It tracks down the origins of the story and shows chronologically how it changed. Download Timeline for free from the App Store.
