  • Sequoia 1.5 (free) is a puzzle game that is based on a concept similar to Tetris. Users must maneuver shapes to create squares of four by four blocks without the shapes reaching the screen's border.

  • Earth Addresser 2.0 (free) uses the addresses from a users Address Book and creates a KML file that can be opened in Google Earth. When this file is opened it will display all of a users contacts on a map and contacts with pictures will have the picture used to mark their address instead of the standard pin. In version 2.0 the user interface has been completely redesigned and addresses are now looked up and cached by Earth Addresser. Users will also find addition options for what is stored in the KML file and info bubbles that appear in Google Earth now include photos. [Download - 0.18MB]
