Galaxy of Heroes: Haven’t had quite enough “Star Wars”? “Galaxy” is a fun, versatile app to keep even the greatest fan amused for a while. Players set up fighting squads of characters from the game to compete in battles. There are several modes to play with here, and teams – while sometimes limited to the light and dark sides of the Force – can be as varied as players dare to make them. Players can make their favorite characters stronger in a variety of ways. A mix of challenges puts them against game-generated teams of enemies as well as those assembled by others.
The game gives players the option to speed along their progress with in-app purchases and recharge energy that otherwise takes time to regenerate on its own. But honestly, players don’t need to spend money on the game. There are enough activities wrapped into it that there should always be a way to find something to amusing. Free, for iOS and Android.
WiFi Analyzer: Almost everyone has a gripe or two to share about the state of their WiFi network. If you want to find a way to identify (and possibly fix) the trouble spots in your house, “WiFi Analyzer” is a good place to start. It tells you the strength of networks in range of your phone and also gives you an idea of how much interference your signal may be facing. Free, for Android devices.
