Slice-It (Windows Phone 7)

“Slice It!” – perfect complement for what exactly needs to be done in the game. The main aim is to split the objects which float across the screen via movement of the mouse; the score will be incremented positively for every success. Beware of the “bomb” moving across – the user should avoid touching these objects else the game will end. It is a 30 second game and your score will be displayed once the game ends!

Allegro is an Android application intended to capture the text in form of images and
converts them into Portable Document Format (PDF) files. The text captured can be converted into PDF in two ways. The first method, which is a quick and dirty approach, simply uses an image and creates a PDF with one image per page.
