Secret desktop apps on Android

Here are a few secret desktop apps for Android…

1. Chima Speedorz

I love this one. Chima Speedorz runs in a web browser on the Desktop and an app version is available for Android. It has all the features of the desktop version, so they are both equivalent.

Get it for free from the Play Store.

2. Google Chrome

Google Chrome is available for Android 4.1+. It used to be available for Android 4.0, but now it isn’t.

“AndroidΒ 4.0–4.0.4 “Ice Cream Sandwich” is a discontinued version of the Android mobile operating system developed by Google.”

Wikipedia

So, Android 4.0 is discontinued, so Chrome for Android 4.0 is discontinued too. It is a shame, but barely any Android users use Android 4.0, so I get why Google discontinued Chrome for Android 4.0.

Anyways, it works in a similar way to the desktop version, but is more limited. For example:

Chrome Web Store is not supported on Android

You can’t choose Chrome’s homepage.

This is what you get if you visit chrome.google.com/webstore on Android

However, if you just use Chrome for surfing the web, or don’t care about the Chrome Web Store, then Chrome for Mobile can be a good replacement for Google Chrome for Desktop.

3. SuperTux

If you want a Mario inspired game, SuperTux is the game for you. You play as Tux, the Linux penguin, and you fight off bad guys. Get it from the Play Store.

It is exactly the same as the desktop version, with touchscreen optimization.
