App review: Finger Race (Android)

There isn't much to say about this Android-based game (of sorts): select from 1-, 2-, and 5-meter lengths via options (actually centimeters once you get on the track), then proceed to "run" your fingers across the screen until the counter hits zero. The goal is fastest time, and longer swipes will get you to the goal faster. It's about as barebones as you can get -- at least the textured track scrolls as you make your dash -- but we're sure there's enough people out there with a competitive streak that'll love to challenge friends and family. Besides, it's free, and if you're the sort who downloads a ton of apps anyway, it's good exercise for when you need to scroll through your library. You know what? We think the video explains it best -- do check it out after the break.
