It’s the end of another app-driven week. If you haven’t had time to visit the Play Store, here are this week’s news-worthy apps and games. From new productivity tools to Halloween-themed games, we’ve got you covered.


Dragon Mobile Assistant (Beta)

Dragon Mobile Assistant allows voice commands and voice prompts with your Android device. Make a call, send a text message or get directions to a location by simply “talking” to your device. The app is in beta so don’t expect everything to be perfect. Still, something this cool is certainly worth a try.


Daily Badge

If you’re trying to establish a daily routine and track how well you’re doing, Daily Badge is the app for you. Tap on a star to mark an accomplished goal, one day at a time.

UbiSafe is a location-tracking app for keeping an eye on your family members. Features include real-time map location, check-ins, emergency alarms and location history.


Wifi Camera

This small but intriguing app turns your Android device into a Wifi-based CCTV camera. You can access the camera feed from your browser, and both computer and Android device must be connected to the same Wifi network.

Nun Attack

This game couldn’t be more inappropriate – yet it’s undeniably interesting. Nun Attack lets you take down evil one weapon at a time.


Tower Raiders 3

There’s an overwhelming abundance of tower defense games in the Play Store that choosing just one seems an impossible task. Tower Raiders 3 is yet another addition (and sequel) but boasts of unique rules that call for a true strategy-based war game. This new version also looks to have one of the best graphics in its genre.
