Remember Sprinkle? That super-awesome water physics puzzle game about aliens defending their homes from meteoric garbage? Well it's just been topped-off with more content.
Mediocre Games has just released an update with 14 new levels. That's probably about 3 lifetimes worth of gameplay, assuming one plans to aim for the maximum rating in each one. Seriously, getting the highest rating for the later stages in this game is hard.
But the real reason I wanted to talk about this has to do with Sprinkle's "controversial" in-app purchase option to unlock later worlds. Essentially it wasn't necessary, as metalcasket mentioned in our review's comments. The feature has since been removed, but Mediocre has been gracious enough to offer up 6 new levels (in addition to the previously mentioned 14) to these early in-app purchasers. How cool is that?
Sprinkle is still just $0.99, and now features 36 levels (42 for the in-app folks). And there's no time like the present to strap on that adorable little extra terrestrial firefighter's helmet.
In their latest effort to stop people's wasteful use of plastic water bottles (I definitely just ruined my chances for covering the next Ozarka app), Thermos, the "leading manufacturer of vacuum-insulated reusable beverage bottles," has come out with OasisPlaces.
"OasisPlaces is a lifestyle user-generated app used to locate accessible public water fountains in cities across the United States and Canada." Once you are a registered user, you can GPS tag (or type in the address of) public water fountains, wherever they may be. In a stroke of genius, the app even lets you rate the fountains for their "coldness, cleanliness, location and flavor."
Being a kid raised in the "public water fountain" generation, I definitely appreciate a cold blast of water coming from a water fountain. I'm a bit turned off by the germy little kids that slobber all over them, but I guess what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Right?
Go save some plastic trees and download the app, it's free!
You probably know that drinking water is good for you, but do you know how much you are taking in each day and how much you should be? Do you know which foods hydrate you and those that dehydrate? Absorb Water is a simple iPhone app that can tell you how much hydration you are getting from anything you eat or drink that has a water content over 65%. Whether you’re eating fruit or drinking beer, you can add your intake to the app and then chart your progress. Cleverly, the app isn’t all about the foods that are giving you water but those that take it away too, with one of the less pleasant but ultimately important parts of the app being the Mellow Yellow chart that lets you calculate your urine color and determine your hydration level. Come on, you know you’ve always wondered!
The ultimate aim of Absorb Water is to help you drink the equivalent of 12 glasses of water every day but doesn’t force you into heading to the faucet every five minutes. By using foods as well as drinks and monitoring them within the app, you have a much better idea of how much you are ingesting and how much more you need. As apps go, this is a healthy and fun tool that will be frequently updated by developer Syndicated Puzzles as more feedback is gained from users.
