It's no exaggeration to say that Badass Battery Monitor is literally one of our favorite apps. We probably recommend it to someone on a daily basis. As you can see, they've just come out with a new version that's specifically tuned to the Kindle Fire.

More options and a better interface are great reasons to upgrade!

Lastly we've got a nice game with little toy tanks that you move around various arenas. Very highly rated!

Name: Tank Hero
Rating: 4.6 stars over 163 reviews
Price: 0.00
Description: From the legendary T-34 to today's fearsome M-1 Abrams, tanks remain the kings of the battlefield. Now you can climb into the driver's hatch of one of these beasts to test your armor-plated mettle in Tank Hero, the mobile megahit from Clapfoot Games. If you were a fan of the Atari classic Tank, Tank Hero will be your next addiction.

Tank Hero features very smooth controls, so you'll be wreaking havoc in your tank in no time. You have two driving control options: a fully directional pad that you can place on either the left or right corner of the screen, and swipe and tap that allows you to swipe your finger in the direction you want your tank to move. To fire your shells, simply tap on the target you want to hit. This firing system makes your tank a highly accurate killer. Your shells also bounce off the walls, so definitely take advantage of any ricochet effects. Your tank has armor tough enough to withstand two hits from the average tank shell.
