Google Play and Apple App Store Games Comparison

Reviewed at the newly launched website called Killer Game Deals, the author of the website has conducted several reviews on iOS and Google Play Store applications. These types of games are generally aimed to provide a standing source of entertainment at the right price. In some instances, the games listed in both stores are free however, it does not guarantee that the game work flawlessly on devices. Below will be some of the games noted on the website which may interest players before deciding to purchase them.

Dragon Flight
This is a game hosted in both stores. The only difference in the Google Play store, the game is free and links to a social messaging app called KakaoTalk. In the App store, the game is free and stands alone. Comparing both games on two different devices, the game works best on the iPad. The controls are smooth allowing easier navigation of your character. The game can be played on the iPhone but it is recommended to play on a bigger screen to spot approaching obstacles. When playing the game on an Android device, the controls are not as smooth thus leading to more failed attempts in the game. This game is highly recommended on iPad devices; bigger screen and a clearer view of the game. Also it must be noted that in the App store, players can unlock 2 additional classes for $0.99 each. In the Google Play store, these same characters can be unlocked by purchasing virtual currency in the form of crystals.

Chrono Trigger
This title is a classic by Square Enix. Right now the game was recently introduced into the store allowing fans to download this classic title. The price is equal in both stores. The only difference are the different game controls on both devices. Comparatively, Chrono Trigger worked well on iPhones and iPads before the iOS 6 update. Since the update, the game continues to experience crashes and freezes which was not evident prior to the update. On Android devices, users experience frustrating controls deeming the controls ‘sloppy’ and ‘unintuitive’. Square Enix has still yet to resolve this issue on both platforms.

Fruit Ninja
Fruit Ninja is an enjoyable title introduced in the App store on April 21, 2010.The game made its debut on Android devices however, the reception was not as solid as it was in the App store. Both were priced at $0.99 and the game had a tendency to crash on Android devices and caused the device to overheat after a short period of time. It is recommended for to play this game on iOS devices due to the constant engagement of updates which lacks in the Google Play store.

NHL Time – Android App for Hockey Stats

Do you want to bring NHL to your android phone? If so, NHL Time is suitable for you. It is an android app that specially designed for hockey fans to instantly check the latest schedules, results and RSS news of National Hockey League.

Simply speaking, it is an info-giver that offers hockey fans the newest info, saving you the trouble for searching the useful info by TV, computer or other ways. Its most useful feature is that it provides users with the instant schedules and results of NHL. You can check out the results of the finished matches and preview the schedules of future matches just by your phone, without waiting in front of TV or computer. You can choose schedules by date, you can select any day you like to check. NHL Time not only gives you the info about the participated teams, but also the relevant dates and time, as a result, you can suitably plan the time to watch it in advance.

In addition to the above features, it also gives users a platform to read the RSS news on ice hockey alliance.

Generally speaking, it is a handy and useful tool for hockey fans, but after using it, I think there is still room for improvement. The info it provides is limited, such as, not enough info about the results of matches. As a user, I want to know more besides the scores. If you are just looking for a good app that shows scores and game stats of hockey matches, NHL Time is a nice choice.

The Best Free Android Apps For Sports Fans

Just like all the other categories of Android apps, the sports apps available for your Android phone are extremely diverse. In my opinion, this particular category may be the most diverse simply because of all the different sports that are played throughout the world. Of course with every sport comes hundreds of Android apps.

If, for instance, you’re looking for an app that will allow you to keep up with the many European soccer leagues, you need to have at least some help before you start downloading apps. If you go in blind, chances are you will download ten apps that sound like they would do the trick before you find one that does half what you would want it to do! That’s just how it is. I just hope that if you go about finding apps that way, you are doing so with free apps- otherwise you could be out hundreds of dollars pretty darn quick.

One last note: I am going to concentrate on free Android sports apps that are popular now and will be popular in the future. Well that’s obvious, right? Not exactly- a lot of the apps fly to the top of the rankings because it’s a certain time of the year or a huge sporting event is going on (World Cup or the Olympics). I’m also looking into the pure quality of the app and the developer of the app. This way, if you want an awesome Football App (either US Football or regular Football), you should be pretty happy now and in the future with the one I list…

Although there are a lot of Android sports apps that do many more things than providing sports news, I’m concentrating on free Android apps for sports fans on this particular list.

Sporting News Pro Football

If you’re a huge NFL fan, this app should be on your phone. This is a great app to have for game day or if you’re like me and like to look up every stat for every player! The user interface is classy and not too crowded.

CBS Sports Pro Football

I really shouldn’t have two pro football Android apps on my list, but it’s the most popular sport in the US and after thinking about it, why not have three? Maybe I won’t go that far. This is a great football app for everyone, but it’s really geared towards those who play Fantasy Football through CBS Sports. Just login and you will have complete control over your fantasy team!

NBA Game Time Lite 2009-10

This is the official NBA Android app from last season. This coming season’s app will surely be even better! It provides all the player and team stats, real-time scores and even TV information so that you can find out what channel your favorite team is playing on! If you’re an NBA fan and you want a standalone pro basketball app, this is your best option.

F1 LIVE RACING

Are you a Formula 1 fan? I’ll tell you what, honestly, I’m not much of a fan but that doesn’t mean I don’t love this app. This free Android sports app provides more than just live updates for every F1 race around the world. Plain and simple, the graphics and the features are fun. If you download this app, you won’t be disappointed!

FotMob 5.0 – Live Soccer

The best soccer leagues from around the world are followed on this app. Some of them include the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Division and Allsvenskan. I could go on and on, but I really wouldn’t have a clue about what I’m talking about, haha. I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest soccer (football) fan, but I’ve looked through this app and it’s a very solid, professionally built app that I would recommend to anyone.

ESPN ScoreCenter

I really shouldn’t have to say much more than this is the official ESPN app. Heck, I’m not going to: ESPN is “The Worldwide Leader In Sports” after all!

SportsTap

This is again more of a sports portal. All of the big sports are covered by this app and it’s obvious why hundreds of thousands of people really like it! It’s tastefully done and you’ll never complain about a lack of stats or information.

If you’re looking for just one free Android sports app to satisfy your sports-fix, you can’t go wrong with either ESPN ScoreCenter or SportsTap!

Major League Baseball News

There is borderline too much (not in a bad way) baseball information crammed into this app! If you can’t get enough of MLB, you need to download this free Android app now. Along with all of the standard stats, standings and results, each team has their own page and you can customize your own RSS feed through this app!

MMA News

All the latest results, upcoming matches and octagon gossip you’d ever want! If you’re into Mixed Martial Arts, this is the app to get. IMO, it blows away any other MMA-related Android app.

Sports Radio Droid

his radio app gives you the capability to listen to just about any sports show in the country! There’s a healthy list of stations that are covered and I literally NEED this app when I go on vacation. Heaven forbid I’d be away from my sports talk show for a few days, haha. It’s also a great app if you’re living far away from your hometown and your favorite team.
