Ice Age Village

Fans of frosty family film, Ice Age will love this new game tie-in from Gameloft. Ice Age Village sees you build your own town inhabited by your favorite characters from the movies. The idea is to level up to earn acorns, which you use to add new animals and other items within the game. This can take a lot of patience – or you can just choose to buy acorns through in-app payments.

iOS, Android


Flickr has long been one of the most popular photo sharing sites. Now you can access the service through this slick Windows Phone version, which lets you upload the pictures you take on your phone and add titles and descriptions. Others can search and comment on your photos, and the app also supports geo-tagging so people can know where a photo was taken.
