Puzzle/Action game. Attach segments of pipe to let the water flow.

v6.104 - 09/22/2018
Note 1/9/2017: This is a completely new version of this app. This new version addresses some of the issues with the original. The old version will remain on Play, but will not be updated.
Next time you are at a concert, and your favorite band plays a song that calls for it, you will NEED to have this simple app on hand. You can't use real lighters any more. Too dangerous, apparently. And you don't want to be that person simply holding up their phone with the light on. So use the Concert Lighter! One click, and instant, totally safe flame. It's environmentally friendly too!

Simple Calendar Widget
v3.20 - 09/22/2018

Air Horn and Other Loud Sounds
v3.50 - 09/25/2018
There are only 4 sounds in this simple app. Air horn, air raid siren, ship's fog horn, and car horn. Many of these sorts of apps have WAY too many sounds. This is purposely very simple and to the point. My intention with this app is to use it to wake my kids up once the school year starts. I'm not kidding about this.
Countdown to Halloween, App and Widgets
v5.41 - 09/21/2018

Popping Wrap Game
(formerly Bubble Wrap Game)
v6.1 - 09/20/2018
Amusing and fun to play, bubble wrap popping simulator. Great for killing time, but not much of anything else. The "popped" state of each bubble is random, so the game looks different each time you play.

Mini Apps Collection
v1.34 - 06/09/2014
I had a lot of ideas for small apps (applets?) that would be useful for Android users. But seriously, these apps are just too small to warrant the whole mish mash of their own entire application, with a Play listing, individual web page, separate project, etc... So they are consolidated in this app.
