So there’s two neat sales going on at the moment for Star Wars related games, figured I’d share them since I have no clue how long they’ll last at these prices.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ($2.99 from $9.99)

I don’t even need to describe this game or explain what it is, most people are familiar with it. Although I should warn everyone that it will take up around 2.4 GBs of space on their devices. So proceed accordingly if storage space is a concern.

Angry Birds Star Wars HD ($0.45 from $2.99)

Maybe the Angry Birds series is something you’re into and maybe it’s not. I found it semi entertaining back when it first came out, the sheer number of spin-offs since then though kinda turned me off to the series. For $0.45 I guess I can pick it up again. Great little time killer. (Although when it comes to killing time I honestly prefer Hungry Shark Evolution. It’s free and you don’t need to pay for any in-app purchases to get through the game. Although I find Grabatron, also made by Future Games of London, to be far more entertaining and I use to play it all the time back when I had my Nexus S 4G.)

Angry Birds Star Wars II ($0.15 from $1.15)

On the off chance you really like the Angry Birds series and Star Wars then you can also pick up the sequel to the original Star Wars inspired version. It’ll set you back $0.15 and that ain’t too shabby.

I can definitely think of worse ways to spend $0.60 for two decent enough games, namely by losing said sixty cents in my car somewhere.

On a somewhat related note, there’s a new Star Wars game in the Play Store.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga ($6.99)

I don’t really need to go into the game itself, if you’re at all familiar with any LEGO take of an existing franchise then you know how it works. The stuff you already know and love in LEGO form, usually with a fun LEGO twist on some of it.

If storage space is a concern though consider yourselves warned, the game will take up about 1.44 GB of space.

Last but not least and definitely not related to any of the above, Fleksy + GIF Keyboard is currently free to celebrate the addition/launch of the GIF Keyboard aspect of it. (Fleksy Keyboard on its own has previously been available with a week long free trial, at which point if you want to continue using it you have to shell out $1.99 for the paid version.)

Once installed a quick tutorial teaches you the basics of using Fleksy. Fair warning: Swiping is not something this keyboard does. As in “swiping between letters to write a word”. Instead, this keyboard has “gestures”. Swiping left deletes the last word. Swiping right spaces. Swiping down allows you to choose a different autocorrect word. Etc etc etc. It takes some getting used to and honestly the whole “it doesn’t do swipe typing” aspect of it originally turned me off to using it entirely. (I’m a sucker for free apps though and more often than not after some “I’ll use this if it kills me” I end up liking most free apps I install. That said I’ll give this keyboard a try again, but the Google Keyboard really is second to none in my opinion.)

There are also themes and extensions you can install/enable for it.

Quite a few themes actually. I didn’t even bother getting screenshots of all of them, since there’s far too many for my tastes.

That GIF Keyboard though. Very nice. If you’re the type of person who sends plenty of GIFs from your device that alone might be worth downloading and installing this app. (Of course if GIFs are really your thing then there’s definitely other options out there that might be better, like GIF GIF GIF.)

And last but not least is the ability to change the keyboard size. Avoid Original, it’s freaking huge!

And that’s all I got for you all today. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a shark game to play.
