You don't need an introduction to Fruit Ninja. You're probably playing it right now. It has attracted millions of players over the years, partly because swiping to cut things on a touchscreen is as intuitive as pressing A to jump.
So developer Halfbrick Studios has taken the same concept and adapted it for small people who are learning math for the first time. You don't just cut bananas, you cut the right amount of them.
Your teachers always said you'd need math, and they were right. If only you hadn't forgotten all of it as soon as you were out of school. Stupid math. PhotoMath can do it for you and all you need to do is point your phone at the offending math problem.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a classic adventure sequel, a game about pixelated sushi, and a math-based puzzler.
While I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer, I do tend to get quickly addicted to casual math games. Give me a set of numbers, some form of logic problem to solve in a few seconds or more, and I can start round after round, often resulting in hours of continuous play. I have tried dozens of math games for Android and kept finding myself drawn toward the most minimalistic ones.
MyScript Calculator is essentially the magical oracle of mathematics many of us always wished we had in school. If you're still in school, well, you're probably using the hell out of this app. Either way, good news – MyScript Calculator just got an update with a ton of new stuff.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a platformer with classic sensibilities, a new take on the match three puzzle, an unbearably cute physics game, a dudebro version of Asteroids, and a math puzzler.
Today is a day to be joyful for science-minded Android users. Wolfram Alpha has just released a ton of new science and math calculation apps in Google Play. They run the gamut from basic fractions and pre-algebra all the way up to materials science and astronomy. Wolfram Alpha previously released similar calculus and algebra course assistants.
If math is the bane of your existence, Wolfram Alpha has probably been of great use to you. It's a powerful tool, but it can be a pain to enter mathematical functions. The newest apps from the Wolfram Alpha team take a more focused approach to helping you with your homework. The algebra and calculus course assistants put all the operations you need right up front so you can get the right answer faster than your stupid meat-space brain can ever hope to.
Last year, Apple won what was perhaps the largest legal victory in its war on Android when a court ruled that Samsung infringed its patents on a significant number of devices and owed the Cupertino company in excess of a billion dollars. Today, however, that same judge is vacating $450m from that total until a second damages trial with a new jury can commence.
That amount won't be stripped away entirely, mind you.
When you were in school, you were told you need to learn how to do math the hard way because "you won't always have a calculator on you". Well, while we now know that your math teacher was about as good at forward-thinking as the dude who said no one would ever need more than 640k of RAM, there has still always been the problem of more complex expressions, including using constants, fractions, exponents and whatnot.
