About damn time Samsung stopped stalling and released ICS for the Galaxy S2…

I was browsing the android market today and saw this big banner at the top saying something about “10 billion downloads”, slightly curious I decided to have a look at what the fuss was about.
They had a bunch of interesting apps for about 1 SEK each, among them SketchBook Mobile, Great Little War Game, SwiftKey X Keyboard, Paper Camera, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD and Minecraft – Pocket Edition. Also SoundHound, Endomondo and a couple others, but they did not seem that interesting. I bought all the ones I linked above.
Sketchbook Mobile – Works nicely on my Samsung Galaxy S2, quite intuitive controls for drawing on the screen. Even small details can be drawn once you pinch-zoom enough.
Great Little War Game – Had this one from earlier, it’s quite a nice game. BUT, it seriously drains the battery. I mean drains in the way a 4 inch pipe drains a gallon of water.
SwiftKey – quite impressive keyboard, also cool that it’s multilingual and supports up to three languages at once. Meaning I can have English, Swedish and Finnish all at the same time and don’t have to switch between which I’m typing it, it will recognize which language I’m writing in and give suggestions based on that.
Paper Camera – This was probably the most “useless” of the apps I bought, but still a bit fun to see in real-time the overlay/effect which will be applied to the final picture.
Asphalt 6 – Fun racing game, but this one also drains the battery quickly. A rough dozen laps around the tracks resulted in almost 10% drain on the battery.
Minecraft – Never understood what the Minecraft fuss is about. I still don’t. Probably nice for those who are hooked to the blocks.
