APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART:

Must.Eat.Birds for Android
What is it with birds and apps these days? It’s almost as if there is a hugely popular game out there and other app manufacturers are trying to grab a bit of the limelight. Thankfully Must.Eat.Birds is not an Angry Birds rip-off, but a decent game in its own right. You control a Nomster – which is essentially a hungry monster.

It's magic and it's a guidebook. It's Magic Guidebook
Is this the best location-based search service for Windows Mobile yet? Well, granted, there isn't that much competition, but Magic Guidebook is definitely worth a look. Download it today.

Feel the pleasure of your BlackBerry's vibrations...
Oh Matron! This new app for your RIM (excuse me?!) allows you to ease the stresses of the day with over 15 different vibrations. This one seems to be for the wife, so just make sure you give it a wipe down before you start making calls again. Read our Pleasure Engine Turbo for BlackBerry review
