So I finally joined the 21st century and got a smart phone - an Android system. I'm wondering what good games are available for the phone (free or cheap) that BGGers would recommend. I think there have been a few threads on this before, but I can't seem to find them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I just read a thread in which some users indicate that they are very disappointed by android.

What do you mean 21st century? modest

I second Angry Birds (as well as Angry Birds Seasons, the Halloween and Christmas levels)
Island Settlers is a decent Catan clone.

I just got the HTC Incredible over the weekend myself and would recommend Angry Birds and Robo Defense. Angry Birds is basically a quick and easy "shoot a bird from a slingshot to knock over stuff" game, and Robo Defense is a very addictive tower defense game where you build up your defenses to fight off increasingly tougher waves of enemies.

Neither one is a "board game" but they are fun, and both are free. Robo Defense has a free version and a full version for like $2.99.

I've been looking for board games, but have yet to run across any.

Doodle Jump
Guns'n'Glory
Island Settlers (just installed this myself)
Speedx 3D
ZENONIA
Air Control
MiniSquadron!
Angry Birds (and Seasons)
Shredder Chess
Meteor Blitz
Pocket Racing
Fruit Ninja
Galcon
Abduction! 2
Everlands
UniWar
Gem Miner

Not all of them are free, but these are all pretty good. A select few (Shredder Chess, I'm looking at you) are fairly expensive, but most are cheap-ish.

(Oh, and I think this thread really belongs to the computer-based gaming section).
