After skipping a month we are back with our popular Top 5 Android App Series. A lot has changed in the first quarter of 2012. Developers still prefer selling their apps in the iOS Store rather than the Android Marketplace. Over the entire month of June we saw some popular applications releasing their Android versions to attract new followers. While Instagram still remains as the most anticipated launch for Android, today we are going to take a look at some other migrating apps for this month. We will also cover apps that are new and catching the attention of the Android Community. Here it is then, the top 5 list from Price N Fees for June 2012.
Smule is one of the best music app companies out there who recently bought forth the Magic Piano app (initially released for iOS) into the Android Market. Magic Piano allows anyone to play various songs on a piano with the help of a simple but nicely laid out tap interface. At first when you download and run the app you will get some free songs in your Songbook. You can start playing them and all you have to do it tap the notes as they appear on screen. Your rhythm and accuracy determines the overall score which is based on a grade of 3 stars. At any point of time you can restart the song if you feel your rhythm is not working properly. While some songs like Twinkle Twinkle Little Starts are easy to play but there are other classical pieces that let you play with full chords and offer a challenging gameplay.
For every song that you play you earn some coins. These coins can be used to purchase new songs and add then to your songbook. The average cost for a new song is around 75 Coins and you might wanna purchase coins additionally with real cash as it takes time to accumulate a whole lot of them. There are occasional free songs that you can download as well. Apart from the gameplay, there is a “Listen to the World” mode where you can listen to other magic piano players across the planet. The App also allows you to play traditional piano by tapping and a spiral piano lets you feel like a rockstar. This free app is a must have for any music lover.
With Pixar’s new movie Brave just getting released the famous Temple Run franchise also introduced a new version called Temple Run Brave. If you are not already familiar with their first game then you must download and try it right now. It’s immensely addictive where you need to steer a man through the pathway of a giant temple, collect coins and upgrades and try to score as much possible. With Brave the first thing you will notice is the all new graphics that looks sharp and the textures are a whole lot better.
Instead of penguin like creatures that chased you in the previous game, here you are chased by a mordu bear. You can shoot additional creatures for more points while you are running. The character that you play with is the girl called Merida from Brave itself. Temple Run Brave is a paid app for just a dollar and you must get this game simply because this is the best time spending app that you will ever find at such a low price.
The original Max Payne creators, Rockstar Games recently released a mobile version of the original game for the iPhone and iPad. After getting a huge public response they decided to bring the game for the Android Users. Max Payne mobile lets you play as Max Payne and the whole story of part 1. The controls are extremely responsive and very easy to grasp within minutes. The graphics are exactly the same as the original one. You might find the graphics lowered for some Android devices because of the varying specifications. Relive you gaming nostalgia with Max Payne mobile, one of the best games ever made.
With numerous racing games recently released for the Android Market, Death Racing stands out because of its simplicity. Select your car and you are off to your road in seconds. Your objective is to avoid collision with other vehicles on road. You need to tilt to adjust your position and tap on the screen to accelerate. There are lots of cars to choose that determines your tilt response and top speed. Coins earned in game are used to upgrade your vehicles.
Death Racing Pro offers you two modes or gameplay, normal and mist mode. In normal the camera is placed on top that allows you to play in a 2D like environment. The Mist mode is something that I personally prefer, giving you a 3D view with the camera placed at the back of your car. Death Racing Pro is a fun and addictive game that will consume you for hours. You can even try a free version of Death Racing Pro before paying for the full version.

You can have your own customized profile where you share you different beer experiences in pictures or text. You can also search for local places selling your beer. I recommend this free app to everyone who loves consuming and exploring the world of beer.
