No Brakes : Minimalisticand Addictive Racing Game for Android

As the name suggests, in No Brakes your only aim is to drive at the maximum speed possible. There's a single race track, no time limit or laps. Just don't drive into any walls.

The pastels (or pastel colors) which change as you gain momentum in the game are easy on the eyes. And Man, I love the soothing background music on the Game.

You get to different "speed zones" as you go farther in the game. Once you hit a new speed zone, you can hit higher speeds than you did in the previous speed zones and the car becomes more difficult to handle.

Your scores are ranked based on the Top Speed. If you sign in to the Google Play Games with No Brakes then the results and achievements are posted for your bragging rights.

We all know that Nexus 5, Galaxy S4 and other newer android phones have a built-in pedometer sensor. Using it with the right apps will displace the fitness bands like fitbit. Android 4.4 has added support for two new composite sensors -- step detector and step counter. These sensors let your app track steps when the user is walking, running, or climbing stairs. These new sensors are implemented in hardware for low power consumption. So here are the pedometer apps to help your track your activities.


It is one of the well designed apps on the PlayStore. It tracks your daily walking, running, cycling and distance covered in a vehicle. It uses the collected data to show you what paths you took by showing routes in a map. You have to turn on GPS to use this app correctly.
