Organ Trail: Director’s Cut is a parody remake of the original classic game The Oregon Trail. Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, it’s currently available on both iOS and Android. The idea of the game is pretty much the same except you’re in a zombie infested world. The same retro pixel art is seen throughout the app which makes it even more hilarious. You set out on a journey with 4 of your friends looking for supplies and fending off the undead. Each town stop will let you rest, buy and sell stuff, or fix your car. As you travel around the nation with plenty of action and story, you also get to watch your party members die a slow death. Organ Trail is currently available for the iPhone/iPad($2.99) and also the Android($2.99). Check out the game trailer below:-

Being a zombie ain’t easy. They have to look for brains to eat when they are hungry and run away from the many dangerous humans that are after them. Plight of the Zombie is what that’s all about which is different from the rest of the zombie games out there. There’s 30 levels of puzzles where you need to move the adorable corpses by drawing a path for them to follow. Tapping on them will stop them for a couple of seconds. You need to plan your strategy to avoid the bad humans and snag as many brains as you can. It can be quite a challenge when you have to delegate a couple of zombies. Must say it’s pretty unique and a great looking path-drawing puzzle game.
Plight of the Zombie is currently available on Android(free) and iOS($2.99). Check out the app trailer below:-

No news on when they will release a version for the iOS platform though. Android users can download the free app from Google Play here.
I have always wished that I could customize widgets and apps to show on my iPad’s home screen but it’s pretty restricted as we all know. Android tablet users would be happy to know there’s a cool new app called Chameleon for Honeycomb tablet users. Chameleon lets you customize multiple Home Screens that fits your needs by either time of the day or where you are. So let’s say if you wake up in the morning, you can instantly have a Home Screen that shows you your RSS news, weather or a breakfast recipe. Then when you’re in the office during the afternoon, it will then show you your appointments, emails and world time. Later at night, you could then have it to show your favorite Netflix movies, Facebook feeds and other entertainment news.
This is a Kickstarter project that’s looking for funding to launch this cool app. If you’re interested, then head on to the Kickstarter page where $5 will give you early bird access to the app before it goes into Google Play Store. It’s currently only supported on Android Honeycomb 3.2 or newer.
Sasmsung Galaxy S III’s official tv advert is finally out to get ready for its grand arrival end of this month. The 60-seconds commercial does not shout out what great features it has like a 8 MP camera or a quad-core processor but shows how people connect with the device. I must commend them for taking a shift away from the usual non-sensical Apple blasting but still falls short of logical with the ending tag line that says “designed for humans”. Aren’t all phones designed for humans?
If you’re feeling in a giving mood, then there’s the right app for you. Karma is a relatively new app that changes the way how people give and receive gifts. Karma lets you choose a variety of gifts like champagne, wine, chocolates, toys, etc. You don’t need to know the address of the recipient, just log in through Facebook which will also notify you of any friend’s upcoming birthday or email them directly so that they can fill in the address themselves or even customize their own gift if they want something else. After that, Karma will wrap up the gift and send the gift to them. Karma is currently available for download for both iOS and Android. Best thing, the app is also free.

Samsung Galaxy S II was a huge success for Samsung but the brand new Galaxy S III looks set to bring it up further. Inspired by the elements of wind, water and light, it will initially be available in Pebble Blue and Marble White color. Sporting a slim design of 8.6mm thick, it is also powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor. It will be running the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and also comes with a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD Display. It also has a 8MP rear camera and a 1.9MP front camera which uses some eye tracking technology that will turn off the device’s display by tracking your eye movement.
Apart from that, it also comes with S-Voice that competes with Apple’s Siri and is able to recognize voice commands like waking the device and activating the camera. There’s also the new ‘S Beam,’ allowing a 1GB movie file to be shared within three minutes and a 10MB music file within two seconds by simply touching another GALAXY S III phone. There’s a tonne of other new features but check out the hands-on video and S Voice in action below:-
