The world of applications
Sure, today we’re incredibly depended on the smartphones in our daily life. And that’s no wonder why. We keep in touch with friends, play games, watch movies and TV shows, listen radio, access news, and more. Today millions of people can talk, work, play, learn, read, watch, listen, buy and sell online using their smartphones.
But our smartphones themselves would be meaningless without the software applications that makes our mobile gadgets so powerful and smart in their practical use.
What is an application? This is a program, or group of programs, that allows users to perform specific tasks and include word processors, database programs, Web browsers, development tools as well as drawing, paint, image editing programs, and communication programs.
However, if you have an iPhone, Android or any other mobile device you use applications that help you to get communication, to play games or just to learn weather forecast. In fact mobile apps have taken over the world!
The list of the most popular application include such famous ones as youtube, facebook, instagram, periscope, different type of messengers and others you know pretty well. Also gaming applications are very popular such as Candy Crush Saga, Subway Surfers, Angry Birds, Clash of Clans, etc.
There are various gambling and card games apps as well. So you can play your favorite games whether it is poker, video poker, blackjack, baccarat, roulette or all slots apps right from your mobile device.
Of course, just because these games apps are popular doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the most useful ones for you. Everyone has his own favorites and most loved apps. However people used to game a lot, you know, back in the day.
Gaming has been a great way to get to know people as well as to know yourself and that’s the part of what I love about games. Finally games give you a chance to excel, and if you’re playing in good company you don’t even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game.

Time of Video Games
Millions people around the world are playing different kind of video games and that’s the sigh of our times. Today with so many games on so many devices, games are now the most popular entertainment around the world.
Do you know how many people play computer and video games daily?
More than half a billion people play computer and video games of their electronic devices for at least an hour each day, and about 183 million of those gamers live in the U.S. They spent $22.41 billion on games in 2014. One in three of the most active game players pay to play online games. This is actually a very stunning statistic.
For instance more than half of Canadians have played games in the past 4 weeks. Online games of chance are very popular especially the most common and basic of them such as roulette, craps, and Keno as well as all slots casino mobile for Canadians, the leading mobile casino with the complete gaming package.
The most popular genres are social games such as Angry Birds, Temple Run, Cut the Rope, action and puzzles (most popular of them are Flow Free, Picross 3D, Slitherlink, all the Layton games) , card (blackjack, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!), trivia games in a diverse range of subjects.
Gaming has become the most popular entertainment and that’s fact. Gaming gives us intense and passionate involvement, gaming gives us pleasure and satisfaction.
“Video games are ingrained in our culture,” said ESA president and CEO Michael Gallagher. “Driven by some of the most innovative minds in the tech sector, our industry’s unprecedented leaps in software and hardware engages and inspires our diverse global audience. Our artists and creators continue to push the entertainment envelope, ensuring that our industry will maintain its upward trajectory for years to come.”

Windows 10 Mobile
Microsoft unveiled a new version of its operating system last year – Windows 10 Mobile. And now this operating system has been unified with the Windows Phone OS. It was released as an opt-in Technical Preview 2 (build 9941) on February 12, 2015 to a subset of current Lumia phones, including the Lumia 635, Lumia 730 and Lumia 830. It has since expanded to include almost all of the current Lumia range.
There is a big discussion about all the ups and the downs of the system. However all of them meet on the point that Windows Phone 10 platform shows some real promise and everything is taking in the right direction for the OS that always feels like it’s playing catch up. Now Windows Phone looks like the best and more functionality variant than that it have been ever before.
All those who do use Windows 10 devices can share any opinion right here.
Mobile Gaming Trends
As you know mobile has overtaken Internet access already. Actually it isn’t a surprise that it happened at all as we could see the colossal mobile growth just during last several years. Smart mobile has moved into every aspect of our lives including media, advertising, software, and entertainment not to mention different sort of mobile services we have used daily and just can’t manage without yet.
You know mobile boom has taken our lives like a storm changed it to the better of course. I would say, the mobile innovation updated the world. “The smartphone appears to be destined to become a true digital assistant, capable of self-learning based on the user’s behaviors, then personalizing both the active and passive ways the device can engage with the user, the environment and the network.” Said Daniel Eckert, PwC Director, Mobile Computing in his speech and it seems to be the case.
However usually we don’t think about all these things but use our mobile gadgets and enjoy with them. For instance we play games and this is probably one of the most popular business on the planet and I’m not kidding. Don’t you know that around 80% of all mobile downloads are games? Be sure, that’s fact.
Today you can play your favorite games right on your smartphone or tablet. Even all these PC games you loved break free now from your desktop and that’s probably the biggest trend in mobile technology this year.
Now whether you want to play such flashy new smartphone games as “Zombie Highway 2” where you may kill zombies in ever inventive ways, “Motion Tennis Cast” to play tennis, “Plunder Pirates” to build an island, “Letterpad” to solve different level of puzzles”, or all slots casino pokies – you’re welcome! You can get it quick and easy right now to enjoy with any games you just love.
Sure, playing games you enjoy in your spare time but there are plenty of skills you’ve learned from playing games. Gaming is always much more interactive than just watching TV of course. Playing games you solve certain problems just using your own brain to say nothing about earning you can make sometimes just playing your favorite game. It brings an additional pleasantness into the process, doesn’t it?
Gold HTC One M9
CNBS reported on Friday, that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC introduced its HTC One M9 to “celebrate the end of the Champions League season.” Golden phone HTC One M9 is dedicated to the end of one of Europe’s UEFA Champions League, soccer’s biggest events.
The very next day, Barcelona rolled to a decisive 3-1 victory over one of Italy’s oldest clubs.
The quad-core HTC One is a great smartphone powered by Google’s Android OS v4.1. Access Google Play for app downloads or keep an eye on the latest social media updates and news that are streamed straight onto the home screen. The 4.7-inch full high-def display is superb for browsing the internet and the HTC One has access via 3G, Wi-Fi and 4G (network dependent).
The UltraPixel camera is rated as 4-megapixels but this new camera type has a larger light capturing sensor so the end result far exceeds those of standard higher pixel cameras. Capturing the perfect image is also assisted with an automatic flash with 5 levels, image stabilization, HD video, slow motion video and video calling via a wide angle secondary camera.
Which Android games do you play this year? What is the favorite ones? As to me I prefer strategy games and choose follow ones:
This a thrilling PC, Mac, Linux and tablet (iOS/Android) strategy game. It brings the simultaneous turn-based strategy genre where you should yto take control of a small assault team to take down an enemy team in a single player campaign, or other players in multiplayer.
XCOM: Enemy Within
Enemy Within is a standalone expansion to the 2012 strategy game of the year XCOM®: Enemy Unknown and it’s now available on GooglePlay devices! Enemy Within features the core gameplay of Enemy Unknown plus more exciting content. Check out the new soldiers, abilities, enemies, maps, missions, and multiplayer mode for the fresh new strategy gaming experience. If you want to try it download Enemy Within application on googleplay.
Probably among action games one of the best is
Brothers in Arms 3
. You can get it’s apps is here.
The internationally acclaimed WW2 franchise returns with blood-pumping shooting action, spectacular killcams, and lots of amazing experimental weapons. Become Sergeant Wright and experience a dramatic, life-changing journey in the aftermath of the Normandy invasion.
Lead your band of highly trained brothers on the frontline and use their special abilities in the heat of the battle. Upgrade your weapons, improve your soldiers’ skills and fight against the enemy army.
Total War: Attila
At first sight this new strategic the video game Attila has not an actual difference in its appearance from Rome 2 but it’s not so. You can notice the game engine is still the same global map, where local kingdoms have a fight to capture Europe.
The difference is the time of late antiquity. Also all battles get small changes that make them more realistic and entertaining and look very impressive, especially when you fight for such metropolises as Rome or Constantinople.
If you already have the game, you have noticed that Attila really does look better than Rome 2, especially the atmospheres, such as fog. A battle in a forest in fog at max settings (not extreme) is actually very pretty, and has a pretty good realistic atmosphere. If you haven’t yet it’s worth to try this new version to get playing this giant empire, bloodthirsty nomads, court intrigues and global cooling in the most innovative way of Total War today.
Finally I’m sure now no one can say recent Total War games are ugly.
