Where's My Mickey?

In new game, Disney puts Mickey in play

Disney's "Where's My" series has a new addition, starring a familiar face — none other than the big mouse himself. "Where's My Mickey?" should feel familiar to anyone who's played its predecessors, "Where's My Water?" and "Where's My Perry?" on the smartphone or tablet, although "Mickey" manages to get in a couple of specific differences that are unique to the newest title, such as the addition of clouds that players control to get the flow of water just right. And the levels are perfect for the summer — players help Mickey get water for his lemonade stand, while he's on an adventure or tending his garden. 99 cents, for Android and iOS devices.

Go Keyboard

Smooth typing

"Go Keyboard" represents one of the joys of having an Android device — the ability to mess with features as core to the system as the keyboard. It lets you incorporate emoticons and customize how the keyboard looks, and it supports additional plug-ins for more than two dozen languages. The plug-ins require separate, but free, downloads. As far as typing goes, this keyboard is pretty smooth. As compared to the standard Android keyboard, the prediction algorithm could use a little work — but users can set the app to learn new words if they find they want the keyboard to pick up on their personal style over time. Free, with the option of an ad-free upgrade, for Android devices running 2.0 and up.
