The kingdom of Arendelle gets 45 new levels of holiday cheer.

The kingdom of Arendelle might sound like one of those fortified castles in middle earth, but it's not. This kingdom has nothing to do with Tolkien fantastic world. It's a world of magic and princesses. Maybe "Frozen" would make more sense. If you have kids, avoid saying it loud or you'll end up with an overdose of songs out of the Disney movie. The franchise is also very popular on Android in the form of a game that is often updated with new levels matching the season. 

With Christmas only 10 days away, Disney is bringing 45 new levels to the games to keep the kids not get too excited. See the detailed change log below and get a spare device to give to your kids so they can enjoy the game with their favorite princesses.

What's new:
  • Introducing: Starter and Pro Packs! Stuck, for the first time in forever?
  • New Power up: PRESENTS! It’s a surprise each time!
  • 10 NEW Gingerbread Cookie Collectibles
  • 2 game modes:
    1. Christmas Lights! Make matches next to them to light up the board!
    2. Christmas Ornaments! Match them with gems! How shiny!

Skype Qik now lets you send message to another conversation; resend Qik SMS invite.

I have never been a fan of Snapchat, so it's no surprise that Skype Qik is there on my devices and has never been used if not for a few tests when it was released. If, unlike me, you're a user or fan of Skype Qik, then head over to the store as there is an update waiting for you. Maybe the changes listed below will make sense to you and improve your Qik, say "Quick", experience.

As mentioned in the title, the Qik team included a special holiday surprise in this update. It consists of falling snow flakes  upon launching the app. Don't worry, the flakes go away after a few seconds.

Here's what is new in this version of Skype Qik:

  • New menu lets you delete, save, or send your message to another conversation.
  • Friend didn't open the SMS invitation to Qik you sent? Now you can it again.
  • PLUS, a special holiday surprise!
