Stay Mayor | Free | Android
Our swashbuckling mayor is at it again, and he’s caught in quite the conundrum. There’s a questionable video on the loose and he’s hankering to raise a hell-of-a-lotta cash to quell the suspicions of the respected public. His insatiable appetite for crack and fried chicken (largely indistinguishable from one another due to their terribly addictive properties and propensity to cause euphoria and delusions) are counteracting with one another as he seeks to escape the media herd. As cameramen close in on all sides, he must use his football flinging skills to ward them off and raise enough capital to stay mayor for good! Just remember pixelated mayor, smoking crack is bad, mmm’kay.
Rockpack | Free | iOS
When was the last time you fell into a YouTube hole? It’s easy to get caught in the clutches of the viral video vortex – wasting away your working hours in the misguided hope that your next underground video discovery will make it to a million hits because you shared it first. Well whether you’re searching for validation or are content to ride the coattails of everyone else’s wasted time, Rockpack is probably for you. Discover popular vids from across the web and receive daily updates from the video channels you subscribe to. Flaunt your own curating abilities by sharing them with your friends or passively follow the likes of Lebron James and College Humour. It’s all good in the inter-hood.
