Notable apps and games

CrimeBot

CrimeBot is a simple deduction game in which you try to solve murders by looking at evidence and suspects.

Clues include suspect, scene, object and witness information, and it is up to you to use the information to identify the murderer from a list of suspects.

Light Box Surface ($4.99)

Light Box Surface is a tracking tool for Windows 10 that supports Windows Ink.

Load an image in the background to trace over it using a digital pen or the mouse. While you may get the best mileage out of the app if you have access to a digital pen, you may use the app with other input methods as well.

Supports undo and redo operations, transparency adjustments for the background image, and more.

Nonstop Knight

Nonstop Knight is a great looking dungeon crawl game that combines idle game and endless running concepts.

You control the hero of the game indirectly only. All you do is activate specials, upgrade or switch equipment, and decide when to face the next boss of the dungeon.

The game is fast paced and fun, at least in the beginning. As is the case with many idle games, it soon becomes a question of spending more and more time grinding to earn enough gold to upgrade your equipment to face the next boss, or take the shortcut by buying better equipment in the built-in store with money.

OBD dash.Lite

The application requires an OBD adapter. You may use it to view live sensor data, check and clear engine trouble codes, or check emission readiness.

All PIDs defined in the SAE J1979 standard are supported.

Snake vs Snake ($0.99)

Snake vs Snake is a multiplayer variant of the classic Snake game. While you can play the game alone, it is the game's local multiplayer mode that sets it apart from other Snake clones.

Play with up to four human players who control their "snakes" with the keyboard or mouse. While it may get a bit crowded if four players use the keyboard for navigation, it is a lot of fun as well.

The game features an online high score list and power ups in battle mode.

App updates

Realarm alarm app update brings automatic sync and usability improvements.
