5 best foosball apps for Android and Apple

author-picAbout author
Mark is a foosball player who has a blog where he writes everything about foosball. On his blog you can read about foosball history, foosball table and other parts or even how to foosball tutorials.


1.  Foosball Cup World by Ludus Studio



The reason why I have put this Android game app in the first place is the fact that I find it better than the rest. When you look at its design, features, and options you can see that it has them all. It looks amazing, kind of resembles the real football tournament and you will feel like you are on the real foosball table. Also, you can choose the mode you want to play: World League, Tournament, and Challenges, you can choose the team from 51 countries all over the world and you can open even more possibilities with completing Challenges. Now, this is all for 1 player, but you can also play foosball with your friend because there is a 2 players option.


2.  Let’s Foosball Free – Table Football by Nieo Tech Co., Ltd



This is an application made for Apple devices and it is pretty good. The only reason why it isn’t in the 1st place is the design. When you look at it, it looks too childish for my taste. What I like about this app is the fact that you can change the camera view. Also, you can improve your skill because there are 4 levels of difficulty. So, if you are a rookie or an experienced fooser, you will find your match here. There is one option which I am not sure about it. It is multiplayer which means you can have 4 players at once. It does sound extra interesting but you will have to stand really close to fit on one screen.

3.  Foosball by White Collar Games




This is a pretty good app made for Android, but it can’t offer you the ability to play a tournament. It is more focused on 1 or 2 player option and every feature it has, it about it. You can change the length of the match and you can change the number of scored goals before the match ends. So, you can put the time limitation and score limitation and that is enough for a 2 player match. The app has two bonus modes and those are the Slow Motion and the Super Ball.


4.  Foosball by NAVU App



Another foosball app made for Android, which has more cons than pros. For example, the design is pretty childish, everything is blue and red, but you can choose to play with someone or with CPU, or you can play tournament. And that is pretty much everything you can choose. Also, you control the rods with arrows and that can be pretty.

5.  Foosball by Illusion Labs 



The last app I will talk about is made for Apple devices and it is on the 5th place because it is not user-friendly at all. There is one option you can change and that is the 3 levels of difficulty. Everything else is pretty much the same. You can’t choose the color of your team, you can’t choose the length of the match or the number of goals before the game ends. It is a rather simple app and due to the lack of options I assume it is made for kids.

Atomic Fingerprinting : Best Way To Bring A Stop To Products' Counterfeits


  As we all know that we are now in an era where fake products are now produced as a counterfeit of an original product. This has led to so many frustrations as people encounter this false products.

I remembered sometimes ago, I went to a very famous store to get a new and original battery for my phone. On the battery it had a label named 'original' as I put in coats. I paid the price of getting an original one with the trust that the store sold original products. I never expected the aftermath,after fully charging the battery as I was instructed, I switched on my phone and at the bar case it showed 100%, so happy I got an original battery I started using my phone. Although I didn't do so much with it, I had not spend up to two hours when I found out the battery was low. 

I decided to make a complaint to the store the next day. On getting there, I explained all to the sales girl who took me to the branch manager who gave me several reasons why neither my money nor another battery could be refunded. I was confused and annoyed but it couldn't change anything. I continued to use the so called 'original' battery i bought.




Furthermore, this case of counterfeits has also eaten deep into the pharmaceutical industry where people buy fake drugs such as paracetamol tablet that would form into a towel as soon as it gets in contact with water. But a special thanks is given to science, scientists and technology that has brought about a way to stop fake, harzadious and sophisticated products this medium of anti-counterfeiting is called "ATOMIC FINGERPRINTING".


The new anti-counterfeiting method has two components: (1). a unique molecular pattern that can be incorporated into a holographic label and (2). a smartphone app.


The unique pattern is created by constructing some things into an atom-thin layer of material, such as graphene oxide. This may include removing a carbon atom, or adding extra oxygen atoms, or creating a ridge of atoms. Once this is done, the material is incorporated into an ink and then printed on an hologram using an inkjet printer after which can be added as a label to any product.

When this is successfully done, a product with the atomic fingerprinting is purchased, the buyer would confirm the presence of the atomic pattern by using a smartphone camera and its built-in flash to photograph the label. The flash excites the atoms, which produce a unique color based on the pattern. A corresponding app can instantly analyze the image and confirm whether the label is authentic or not. 

This solution to such an extensive problem like counterfeiting can be adopted by a large number of people and industries at large. Its a technique that is easy to incorporate and analyze which can enable that it is widely adopted and much faster. 

This method can be adopted in the automotive industry, where parts are already spray-painted with labels and also in the pharmaceutical industry to save lives. More than thirty percent(30%) of counterfeit pharmaceuticals don't contain the correct active ingredient and People purchase these things, believing they're real, but they're not being treated for the disease. 
Let's all help say no to counterfeits and embrace this new method of atomic fingerprinting by commenting and sharing.
