Top 20 Best Tizen Apps for January 2019

Filed under
Linux

January saw quite a few new Tizen games to hit the Top 20 most popular downloaded list. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any new Tizen smartphone apps in this Tizen Store list. WhatsApp Messenger, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger still enjoy the top 3 positions respectively. I don’t think anything will shake them off that pedestal now.

As I said earlier there are quite a few new games in the Top 20. Top of the games list we have Bounce Classic, as the name implies, is a classic bounce game that relies on physics. You need to avoid the spikes and thorns and jump through the hoops in order to earn points. It has the original 11 bounce levels as well as 5 new custom ones. Ghost Moto simulator is a role play game, where you need to balance your bike and dodge unexpected hurdles. Another new entry at number 11 is the classic Snakes and Ladders game. Initially you have one board to play on with a choice of 8 characters. The idea is to earn stars as you go.

I only use a laptop for company events, which are usually 2-4 weeks a year. Otherwise, I use my desktop. I would have bought a machine with Ubuntu pre-installed if I was looking for more of a daily driver. Read more

R.T. Russell's Z80 BBC Basic is now open source

As part of the work I’ve been doing with cpmish I’ve been trying to track down the copyright holders of some of the more classic pieces of CP/M software and asking them to license it in a way that allows redistribution. One of the people I contacted was R.T. Russell, the author of the classic Z80 BBC BASIC, and he very kindly sent me the source and agreed to allow it to be distributed under the terms of the zlib license. So it’s now open source! Read more
