…. New and Noteworthy App Entries
1. DreamLab (iOS/iPadOS, Free)
Imagine if you could really make a difference and help to speed up time in
the fight against Covid–19 and cancer.??DreamLab is a multi-award
winning app from the Vodafone Foundation, in partnership with Imperial
College London, which uses the collective power of mobile phones to fast
track Covid–19 and cancer research. DreamLab exists to help find answers
quicker and the more people who use DreamLab, the faster it works.
Medical research currently generates huge volumes of health data around the
world every day, but access to computing power to crunch and make sense of
this data is limited. Your mobile device contains a huge amount of computing
power needed to run everything from email to music and video streaming apps,
but is mostly dormant while you plug it in to charge overnight. DreamLab
harnesses this processing power, of yours and thousands of other mobile
phones, to examine such health data to look specifically at how existing
drugs can be repurposed to help in the fight against cancer.
DreamLab taps into this invaluable resource to find more effective
combinations of drugs that can be tailored to patients to improve treatments
and save lives. As a Dreamer you can even choose which project to support
and also select how much mobile data the app uses every month (or only on
WiFi). Just one PC running 24 hours a day would need 300 years to process
the data required to complete the project. However, 100,000 smartphones
running DreamLab for six hours a night could fast track the job in just

predict whether each new sequence fits. Collect evidence, adjust your
predictions, and guess the rule–it’s a lot like the scientific method!
Guess the Rule is easy to learn but difficult to master. Start with simple
rules, but if you want to spice things up, try adding “and”, “or”,
or “if…then”… You’ll find endless challenges, some of which are
Play alone or with friends! Compete for daily high scores, or see who can
guess the rule fastest in a pass-and-play match.

6. Sonar Islands (iOS/iPadOS, Free With In-App Purchases)
The new game from the makers of the award winning game FEER.
Sonar Islands is a MULTIPLAYER ONLINE game, where all relevant events happen
in your ears.
On various islands you explore and discover, seek hidden TREASURES and
conquer OBSTACLES. Every new island has a special atmosphere and a different
gameplay. Do your best to fortify your islands and be clever enough to take
the gold from your opponents.
* Visit the ancient TEMPLE island, the ancestors built, where snakes are
biting and down falling parts may block your way.
* Take a trip to the JUNGLE island, watch abandoned lions on your way, but
be aware of the tree traps, set up by the natives. You can go up, but
there is no coming down.
* The FUN FAIR island is a happy place to be. You can shoot toys coming
towards you. Some carry a treasure, some carry a bomb, that’s the risk.
* The VOLCANO island is a chilly place, for some too hot, especially if you
step near the lava flows. Ash and stone rain down due to the eruptions of
terraforming, raise your shield to protect you.
* In the MACHINE HALL you will meet the friendly robots from Feer, but this
time you carry a stun gun to short-circuit their brains, at least for a
while, till their self-repair is complete.
* On PING island you will get a sonar device for orientation, send out a
tone and the echo tells you, where to go. That’s good, because you may
discover, this island is a labyrinth.
* High up on the TREETOP island you have to deal with wind and mosquitos.
The wind is really disorientating, leaves are rustling, while the
mosquitos chase you. And don’t fall, while balancing on the twigs.
* On the ELECTRO island you face the invisible power of ELECTRICITY. Tesla
coils sparkle round their high voltage, better shoot some metal confetti
to divert the current. The nice thing here are catapult plates, they make
you fly all over the island. A pity, that you don’t know where you will
Sonar Islands comes with a tutorial, a training island and a story island.
To get full access to the game, Sonar Islands offers a monthly and a yearly
subscription. When you purchase a subscription, payments will be charged to
your App Store account at the confirmation of purchase and will
automatically renew unless canceled within 24-hours before the end of the
