Kflicks looks cool.

The River Test was fun for a few minutes until it was solved~then not-so-much. Nice to keep on my phone to challenge my wife (who has a droid and can't get this for free) and whomever else that thinks they're smart. (Don't know if that 10% of the population being able to solve is accurate.)
