Hi Emma,
Apps are what makes smartphone and tablets notably fun and useful. It’s hard to think of anyone not having the facebook app on their gadgets. I also have the Angry Birds Seasons on my tablet as it was featured on the app store for a week with all features unlocked. I’ve never heard about ‘Shoot the Zombirds’ before, but I may try it out as my nephew is addicted to this kind of game.
