Ninety-nine cent Kindle Halloween games…and the Kindle Fire appstore

October 22, 2011

Ninety-nine cent Kindle Halloween games…and the Kindle Fire appstore

Amazon appears to be having a special right now on Halloween-themed Kindle games (the kind you play on the Kindle Keyboard, formerly the Kindle 3).

Before I list those, though, I do want to link you to the new Kindle Fire appstore on Amazon. I swear, I was planning to do a “Fire free” post today, ;) but I think you’ll be interested. If you not, I’ll hit you with the ninety-nine cent Kindle Halloween games. If you aren’t interested in either…hang in there for the next  post. :)

Kindle Fire Apps

Similar to the

Kindle Fire Newsstand

it’s a new storefront just for the Kindle Fire.

There are some interesting choices in the 47 games and apps Amazon has chosen to feature. I do want to note that these are apps in the Amazon appstore…they’d work on other devices as well. I have my Smartphone registered…if I didn’t, I don’t think I could actually get these apps at this point (if I was just waiting on a Fire).

One that caught my eye was

Dictionary.com

I use

http://dictionary.reference.com/

quite often…but why choose this free to feature on the Fire page? Perhaps that suggests strongly that the Fire will not have a built-in dictionary? That seems a bit odd, since my Kindle for Android has it on my phone.

Here’s a drawing app…I’ve seen questions about that:

SketchBook Mobile

Here’s an interactive kids’ book…including “read aloud”:

Green Eggs and Ham – Dr. Seuss

I’m sure many more will be added. Take a look at them and let me know what stands out to you.

Now, on to those cheap Halloween games for current Kindles…they are all ninety-nine cents (for some of them that’s a sale, and for some of them that appears to be normal):

Mahjong Solitaire Halloween Edition

Futoshiki Halloween Edition

Ultimate Halloween Quiz

Blossom Halloween Edition

Mystery Castle: Dawn of Illusion

Choice of the Vampire

Poker of the Dead

Ghostboy and the Nameless Grave

As with other Active Content titles, they don’t work on the K1, but do work on K2s, K3s (now called a Kindle Keyboard), and the KDX. We don’t know about the Fire yet. They don’t work in reader apps, and I assume they can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy them once and share them with all compatible devices on the account.

If you try any of these, feel free to let me know what you think.

Free game: Jigsaw Words

August 27, 2011

Free game: Jigsaw Words

Jigsaw Words (free at time of writing)
by Amazon

Okay I admit it…I play games sometimes on my Kindle…I have since the Kindle 1 (and yes, it came with a game). I know that seems inappropriate to some people. I mostly do it when I only have a couple of minutes, like waiting in line. As I’ve said before, I’d rather interrupt Solitaire than Mark Twain when I’m called up to the counter.

The fact that this is a word game may make it a bit more acceptable to some. :)

Jigsaw Words is a nice variant.

It’s easy to learn to play, but the puzzles can be challenging (which is a good thing).

I suppose the biggest negative is that it appears to be a finite game…you’ll eventually finish it. However, since it was free, that’s not a big deal to me.

The basic idea is that you see a series of clues, that look somewhat like crossword puzzle clues. At the top of the screen are “tiles” (they’d be tiles if this was physical game) with some letters on each one. You combine the tiles to form words which answer the questions.

For example, and I’m just making this up, it might say a clue like, “E-Book Reader”, and there might be a tile with KIN and another tile with DLE. Put those two together, click Submit, and the answer is filled in for the clue. Those two tiles disappear.

That sounds simple, but it can be harder than you think. First, the tiles aren’t in any particular order, so the letters you need might be back to front. Second, some of the questions are hard, and may look like they have more than one answer. Quick: what was the 42nd state admitted to the union? If it said, “City in California”, there are a lot of possible answers.

As always on your Kindle, when in doubt, hit Menu. If you do that in a puzzle, for example, you’ll get a choice to shuffle the tiles or even get a hint.

It does remember where you are in the sequence…if you are partway through a category, you don’t have to start over when you leave the Kindle and come back to it.

All in all, I’d say it’s more than worth the money. ;) It’s no Scrabble or Boggle, but it’s not bad.

As with other Active Content titles, it doesn’t work on the K1, but does work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  It doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume it can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy it once and share it with all compatible devices on the account.

If you try it, feel free to let me know what you think.

New from 7 Dragons: a Calendar app (and an update to Notepad)

June 23, 2011

New from 7 Dragons: a Calendar app (and an update to Notepad)

7 Dragons has figured out the right way to do Kindle apps.

It was exciting to see that they have a new app:

Calendar $0.99 at time of writing

It blows the Jujuba Software version out of the water, in my opinion. It has two of the features I thought were missing in that one: recurring events and searching.

It also has something a lot of you will want: the ability to change the background (gee, maybe you can put Emily Dickinson in there…she’s so popular as a “screensaver” ;) ).  Actually, it’s pre-set images, but you visually-oriented people will like having the option.

Speaking of visuals, if you indicate something is a birthday, you’ll see a balloon on that day. A “special event” gets a star.

Oh, and I have to give them big praise: the Help file has increasable text sizes! That drives me nuts in some active content.

There were a lot of nice features, but the nicest of all is that 7 Dragons makes it easy.

This is probably a good place for the

Full disclosure: I do have some correspondence with Abhi of http://ireaderreview.com/, and he is part of the team that developed this (although he is always careful to credit 7 Dragons).

As an example of that correspondence (and how you benefit from it) :) , Abhi recently let me know about an update to 7 Dragons’ popular

Notepad app

He kindly gave me permission to post his updated features list:

  • Copy Paste – It works like highlighting in Kindle Books. Press Once to go into Copy Paste Mode – press 5-way again to get options.
  • Persistent Shift. To get capitals you can now press Shift, let go, type ‘a’, and get ‘A’.
  1. The largest font size is now bigger. Earlier it was 30 and now it’s 33. Note: Your current font size doesn’t change unless you go into Aa menu (by pressing Aa key) and change it.
  2. Anti-aliasing option on newer Kindles. On Kindle 3 and Kindle WiFi you can turn on anti-aliasing.
  3. Speed Improvements. With Notepad V1.0 once you crossed 100 notes you’d see slowness and would also see things slow down quite a bit once you got to 200+ notes. With Notepad V1.1 even 300-400 notes work relatively fast and everything is faster to use. More on speed improvements at the end of this post.
  4. Word wrap. Now words don’t get cut at the end of a line.
  5. Smart Note Save Notification. Now the note save notification doesn’t take focus and doesn’t stop you from continuing to type. Press Alt+S and the note save notification appears at the top and you can just continue typing.
  6. New Movement Shortcuts. Move around quicker using handy shortcuts:
    Shift+Next Page: Goes to the End of the Note
    Shift+Prev Page: Goes to the Beginning of the Note
    Shift+Right on the 5-way: Goes to the end of the Line
    Shift+Left on the 5-way: Goes to the beginning of the Line
    You can press Shift and Up to scroll up quickly.
    You can press Shift and Down to scroll down quickly.
    Next Page goes to Next Page of the Note (Page Size = amount of the note you see on the screen at one time).
    Prev Page goes to Previous Page of the Note.
  7. Quick Delete feature – Press down on DEL and hold it. After around a second it starts deleting 4-5 characters per second.
  8. Undo Feature – Press Alt+Z to undo your last few moves one by one. If you delete something by mistake or want to undo typing you can press Alt+Z to Undo.
Updating it was a bit weird, because when I went to the page, nothing told me there was an update. What it did do was tell me I had previously bought it, and that I could send it to an eligible device on my account. I sent it to my Kindle that previously had it, and it did do the update.
Abhi has a post that talks about the upgrade…and recommends that you back up your notes first:

ireaderreview post

One other note: if you already have Notepad on more than one device, I think you’ll need to send the update to each device.

As with other Active Content titles, this doesn’t work on the K1, but does work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  It doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume it can’t be purchased outside the US.

New Kindle calendar app

April 30, 2011

New Kindle calendar app

For those of you who only want to read books on your Kindle, you can stop here.  :)

For those of you who want to make the Kindle a more robust device, read on.

Calendar Pro
from Jujuba Software
$0.99 at time of writing

Let’s say you want the Kindle to be the only device you carry around with you.

This new utility app brings one of the capabilities I’ve seen requested many times…a scheduler.

It’s important on the Kindle to try to make the interface easy to use.  The inherent slowness of E Ink means that using the 5-way to get around and having to page through to get somewhere difficult…this app does a nice job of getting around those problems by using keyboard shortcuts.

For example, the Next Page button moves you to the next day…that’s what you would expect.

However, Alt+Next Page goes to the next week, and Shift+Next Page goes to the next month.  That’s thinking ahead, and will reduce battery usage.

Each mode (Go To Today, the calendar view; Agenda the list view) has its own Help.

When you get to a place where you would type numbers, it shows you the Alt letter combinations at the bottom of the screen.

You can view by day, month, or year.

I generally found it easy to read and easy to use.

There are a few enhancements I’d like to see in future editions:

  • Recurring events
  • Search events
  • Date formatting (so that dates can be displayed day/month/year, instead of just month/day/year…especially in the agenda view

Overall, it’s serviceable…and that’s good.  The look of it was clean.  For those of you who want a calendar, it’s worth the ninety-nine cents.  :)

Oh, one thing I have to say: don’t be thrown off by the reviews!  There’s one five-star review…and one of the strangest, most unfair 1-star reviews I’ve seen.  The reviewer hasn’t tried the app…and rated it 1-star because they can’t get apps in Canada!  I actually commented the review, because I hope the reviewer deletes it.  I don’t think it is unreasonable to be upset about not being to get the app, but to take that out on the app publishers is…misplaced.  Many people want to state their annoyance publicly, and that can be done…but this kind of thing belongs in a forum, not where it reduces hurts an innocent bystander.  Does it hurt the publisher to give them an undeserved 1-star review?  Yes!  Some people search by average review, and this drops the app from a five to a three (at time of writing).

Bonus note: new free game or the Kindle

Dots and Boxes

As with other Active Content titles, these don’t work on the K1, but do work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  They don’t work in reader apps, and I assume they can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy one once and share it with all compatible devices on the account.

If you try either of them, feel free to let me know what you think.

New free game: Number Slide

April 1, 2011

New free game: Number Slide

Number Slide (free at time of writing)
from Amazon

You know those little plastic trays with the little plastic tiles with numbers on them and one missing space, and you slide the numbers around to put the in order?  At least, you do it that way until you cheat and pry one out with your fingernail and put them back in order, except you can’t quite get them to fit right and you end up twisting the tray until it snaps and numbers fly everywhere?

Just me?  Okay, then…  ;)

Amazon has given us a new free version of the game for the Kindle.  It’s free…I mean, you’d have to pay $3.99 at Oriental Trading Company to get a dozen zoo animal slide puzzles…and those don’t let you set the difficulty!  ;)

Actually, if you don’t mind having games on your Kindle, this is a “why not?” situation. 

Looks like the interface is pretty good.

One interesting thing…they have a menu option for More Games, and it takes you to the Kindle store.  Maybe they are making finding games easier.  I just checked that, though…it’s just the freebies from Amazon at this point.  Six of those show up…

As with other Active Content titles, it doesn’t work on the K1, but does work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  It doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume it can’t be purchased outside the US.

New Active Content: Checkers, Strimko

March 27, 2011

New Active Content: Checkers, Strimko

“Active Content” continues to be added to the Kindle store.

I wish they’d make that part of the store more user-friendly.  They do have a navigation link on the main Kindle store page, which takes you here:

Kindle Active Content

However, once you get there, you can’t search within the category or see all of the items in that category.  In fact, this page is actually labeled “Popular Games & Active Content” which is what appears to be…not all of them.

When you go to bestsellers, you can’t choose Active Content as a separate category.

What this means is that it is kind of hard to find the titles, even if you know the name of one.  You can’t sort by publication date or bestselling.

This may affect sales…it seems to take Amazon a few days before something shows up in the places they promote Active Content.  That was apparently true for the Notepad app from 7 Dragons.

I’d written about it, as had some other bloggers.  The app did well, and was well-reviewed (that’s still true: it has 49 5-star reviews, 5 4-stars, and 3 3-stars at time of writing…that’s an average of 4.8, a very high score). 

I don’t think it was until Amazon mentioned it, though, that it shot to #1 paid in the Kindle store (it’s #6 right now).

It also appears to take them a bit of time before something gets a sales-ranking.

That means it helps a lot in the beginning when a game/app publisher lets the Amazon Kindle community know. 

I’d seen a thread in the Amazon Kindle community from Matt from A Gamz announcing a new

Checkers (ninety-nine cents at time of writing)

game for the Kindle. 

He was also nice enough to drop a note at my About page for this blog.

I haven’t tried it myself, but it does seem pretty full-featured:

  • Ten levels of difficulty
  • You can get hints
  • Choose whether you use “force jump” or not
  • Undo
  • Pass and play
  • Swap sides
  • Random openings

The Kindle is getting to be like carrying your own little game cabinet.  Wait, you didn’t have a game cabinet in your house?  Well, you know what I mean.  ;)

Strimko ($2.99 at time of writing)
Braintonic Games

This one is a variation on Sudoku.  In addition to the normal idea of Sudoku (placing numbers in a grid without repeating the numbers in a row or column….there’s more to it than that, but that’s the basic idea), this version also has “streams” that meander through the grid…which also require unique placement.

I’m not sure if that’s going to enhance the appeal.  I’ve never really gotten into Sudoku, but I had the sense that it was the…linear nature of the game that was partly attractive. 

No reviews yet…you could be the first.  :)

If you try these, feel free to let me know what you think.  I’m particularly interested in how kid-friendly Checkers is, and how Strimko appeals to Sudoku fanatics.

As with other Active Content titles, these don’t work on the K1, but do work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  They don’t work in reader apps, and I assume they can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy these games once and share them with all compatible devices on the account.

New Kindle app: Notepad

March 17, 2011

New Kindle app: Notepad

You know how the active content in the Kindle store is pretty much all games?

Well, this new app is definitely a utility:

Notepad
by 7 Dragons
$0.99 at time of writing

I’ve written before about using your Kindle as a notepad.

This is far more sophisticated, though. 

You can make and read your notes in the app.  You can search your notes (that’s really nice).  They’ve given you keyboard shortcuts for things like saving the note.

You can even back up your notes to your computer!  You do have to be cabled to the computer to do that, but it does save them as easily accessible .txt files. 

They’ve done some nice touches to make it Kindle friendly.  When you enter a search term, for example, you just to wait a second or two for the search results.

I’ve bought it, and I can see how it is going to be useful for me (although I do tend to take my notes now on my SmartPhone, using speech-to-text so I don’t have to thumb type).

They’ve also created some videos.  You can see them at http://www.kappreview.com .

As I write this, it has eight reviews…all five star.  That’s pretty impressive, but I’m sure they’ll get one below five stars from somebody who doesn’t like rutabaga or something.  ;)

Full disclosure: I do have some correspondence with Abhi of http://ireaderreview.com/, and he is part of the team that developed this (although he is always careful to credit 7 Dragons).

As with other Active Content titles, this doesn’t work on the K1, but does work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  It doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume it can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy Notepad once and share it with all compatible devices on the account.

Kindle game sale: $0.99 through March 27

March 17, 2011

Kindle game sale: $0.99 through March 27

Gee, Amazon is starting to make it look like going to the Dollar Store is shopping at Neiman Marcus! 

I mean, you have to be rich to spend three figures (like a one and two zeroes) on something.  ;)

In addition to the Ninety-Niner Novelists, Amazon is having a sale through March 27th, making some of the most popular games for the Kindle only ninety-nine cents.

There are some really popular titles here.  My Significant Other has played Scrabble a lot (normally $4.99) and EA Solitaire (normally $3.99) is my quick game of choice.

Definitely consider taking advantage of this sale, if you are okay with games being on your Kindle.  You can share games between compatible Kindles (not the Kindle 1) on the account.  At some point, one of these could be great for somebody on your account. 

Is the March 27th date significant?  Maybe…maybe that (or the next day, which is a Monday) is the launch of the Amazon Android app store.  Maybe it’s tied into an Amazon tablet.  They’ve done sales on games before, though, without the dates meaning anything specific.

Enjoy!

As with other Active Content titles, these don’t work on the K1, but do work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  They doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume they can’t be purchased outside the US.

New active content: yoga, languages, and games

March 5, 2011

New active content: yoga, languages, and games

When I first heard that the Kindle store was going to do apps, I was picturing things like utilities: maybe something that did page numbers, shopping lists, calendars, a way to do custom sleep mode pictures (screensavers), book organizers or guides, that sort of thing.

Instead, the “active content” part of the store:

Kiindle Active Content

has been dominated by games.

I would have guessed those would be generic word games, but they’ve included Solitaire, chess, Monopoly, backgammon.

This time, though, there aren’t a bunch of traditional games.

I think that’s a positive thing…I don’t mind the games at all, but I like having a mix.

My Yoga Studio $1.99 at time of writing

 I’m not sure that I typically associate reading with physical activity, ;)  but that’s a special segment for Kindle apps.   Nickel Buddy releases its second (following Anywhere Abs) title.  This is one of those things where purists might roll their eyes: can you actually do Yoga by whipping out your Kindle in the breakroom at work?  However, as long as you’re not going to hurt yourself, I figure something is better than nothing.  The reviews indicate that there are no sound cues from the game (even though there is a timer for when to change poses).  That might make it harder to stay in the zone…

I wrote about Tutor 24/7′s two Spanish titles last time.  There use interactive features (Hangman, flash cards) to help you learn languages.  They have one for phrases and one for vocabulary.  They’ve now added other languages (each title is $3.99 at time of writing):

The Ultimate Sci-Fi Quiz $1.99 at time of writing

Of course, there are games, too.  :)

From the folks who brought you The Ultimate Movie Quiz.  I’m afraid 1,000 questions can hardly be the “ultimate” in science fiction quizzes.  ;)  There could be 1,000 questions about one episode of Star Trek.  :)  The bar on science fiction trivia is high…but this might be a fun casual amusement.

Symdoku Unbound #1 $2.99 at time of writing

I never got into Sudoku, but this looks like an interesting twist.  Instead of numbers, there are symbols (stars, crescent moons…the screen shot looks a bit like a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal).  There are 100 puzzles, but you can choose one of three levels for each one…resulting in an effective 300 games.  You can come back to a game later if you are stumped, make notes in a cell, and get hints.

Puzzazz also offers Wordoku Unbound #1 and Sudoku Unbound #1, each $2.99.

Before the Kindle store offered active content, Puzux was doing games for the Kindle.  I had tried that, and it involved connecting via Whispernet (since all of the processing wasn’t available on the Kindle).  That’s not necessary with their active content titles (and when a title is active content, that’s indicated on the product page). 

They now offer a series of Jumble puzzles…from three puzzles for free up to 200 puzzles for $4.99:

You may have done Jumbles in the newspaper.  There is a cartoon with a caption that suggest a pun as an answer.  There are four words that you unscramble with circled letters, and those letters spell the answer.

I’ve also solved those “backwards”…I can usually guess the answer first, and then I use those letters to solve the other four clues…but I’m guessing that is not the way most people do it.  :)

New games: Fighting Fantasy, Movie Trivia…and learn Spanish

February 24, 2011

New games: Fighting Fantasy, Movie Trivia…and learn Spanish

No question, this one caught my eye:

The Warlock of Firetop Mountain ($3.99 at time of writing)

I suspect that there may be a couple of you out there who went, “Woo-hoo!  Firetop Mountain?  The Fighting Fantasy gamebook?”  I assume the rest of you had no reaction.  ;)

In 1982 (83 in the USA), Steve Jackson (not the American game designer…the British one who co-founded Games Workshop, the folks behind Warhammer) had a “gamebook” published by Penguin (and later by Dell).  I still have several books in the series. 

They were sort of a hybrid between a Choose Your Own Adventure and a role-playing game (or at least, a combat system).  From the back cover of the paper edition:

“Armed with two dice, a pencil and an eraser, you set off on a perilous quest to find the Warlock’s treature.  YOU will need to decide which route to follow and which monsters to fight in the elaborate combat system given in the book.”

While dice can be almost fetishistic objects to gamers, the new version, developed by Worldweaver Games *, takes care of the dice and the bookkeepiing for you.  :)

You can learn more about the game at the

Official Fighting Fantasy site 

That site has an intriguing statement, which may be the buzziest thing in this post:

“The Kindle version of Warlock is only available in the US at the moment. For news on the UK version coming soon click here.”

Active content is coming soon the UK store?

There wasn’t really any information when I clicked there, but that’s breaking news if it happens. 

They plan to release one of these books a month…I think that could take them five years to cover the series.  :)

I expect this to do quite well, and it’s worth trying if you’ve been intrigued by the idea of gaming (although solo gaming is very different from the social style).  I took a quick look at the game on my K3…lots of illustrations which look good.  I think more illustrations tend to run the battery down a bit more quickly (even in books), but let me know if you’ve really tried it out.

It could be a huge hit in the UK store…there will definitely be nostalgia for it there.

The Ultimate Movie Quiz ($1.99 at time of writing)

Yes, I’m a trivia guy.  I do pretty well…I would often win Jeopardy when I’m i my family room ;) , but a large part of winning that game in the studio is based on the buzz in, so it’s hard to predict.

Writing trivia is hard.  It’s very delicate to make it not too hard and not too easy.  If everybody knows the answer, it’s no fun…if you have to know Swahili to know the answer (as is the case with knowing Uhura’s mother’s name in the original Star Trek…not in this book, but in the trivia world), that limits most people’s enjoyment.  :)

In an electronic version like this, interface is also important.  Can you play against other people?  Is there variety in the way the questions are presented?  Does it keep track of your score?

It looks like this is all multiple choice, that you have some play options, and that there are about a thousand questions.

24/7 Tutor: Spanish – Basic Phrases ($3.99 at time of writing)

24/7 Tutor: Spanish – Vocabulary (#3.99 at time of writing)

Not all active content titles in the Kindle store are games…but these include them.

It doesn’t look like the Phrases edtion would teach you to speak Spanish from scratch, of course, but it does have a variety of learning methods…which can be very important.  You can play Hangman, do multiple choice, do fill-in..it helps to have options.

One of the screen shots also shows that it is giving you the idiom, not word by word translation.  That’s important as well. 

My guess is that this might be very good if you took Spanish in high school and want to refresh yourself.  It also could be good for someone who is a student now.

One presumption, but I think I’m quite safe on this one.  It’s not going to teach you to pronounce the words.  :)  While the company (Nuance…the same people who make DragonNaturally Speaking) who makes the text-to-speech offers several Spanish voices, they aren’t part of the Kindle. 

The vocabulary title seems similar.  One helpful reviewer (Jeremy Aldrich) notes that it identifies regionalisms…and that definitely matters on vocabulary.  Just as British English and American English can confuse people (lift versus elevator, trunk versus boot) the same is true in Spanish.  That’s a nice feature.  :)

If you try any of these, feel free to let me (and the readers of this blog) know what you think.

As with other Active Content titles, it doesn’t work on the K1, but does work on K2s, K3s, and the KDX.  It doesn’t work in reader apps, and I assume it can’t be purchased outside the US.

You can buy it once and share it with all compatible devices on the account.

For information on more games, see this category.

* I believe Worldweaver is connected with Pinewood Studios (James Bond and Harry Potter).  I don’t think this publication has anything to do with Penguin or Dell.  Rights may have reverted to Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, or they may have retained the rights to game versions as opposed to books…and this might be determined to be a game.  I think the former is more likely.  If anyone from Worldweaver or Fighting Fantasy can shed light on that, I’d appreciate it.
