iRad -- app actually uses the camera to measure radiation

image

I hope I don't ever have a need for this app. iRad ($5.99) uses an algorithm to detect gamma and X rays passing through the camera chip. It takes up to an hour to get an accurate measurement. The app uses your location to post the measurements taken by you and others on a map — basically a way of crowdsourcing radioactive hotspots around the world. You need to occlude the camera while your device is taking the measurement, but for the iPhone 4 that's as simple as placing your phone on a flat, opaque table. It's amazing what people come up with.

What I played this week - Here a clock, there a clock!

Clock apps are popping up all over, and though I didn't have much time this week (pun intended) to play my 2 current fav games in the app world--namely Jet Car Stunts, and Pinball Magic (alas, I completed all the tracks in Paper Racer)--I did have time to check out 2 new clock apps and a cool flying game. Globaclock is an interesting way to keep world time zones straight, and Talking Jelly Clock is just, well weird. Breitling Reno Air Races is mucho 3-D racing fun...!

I haven't checked out this claim, but according to the publicist, Meteoric Download Manager is the only iOS app that can capture streaming video. If there's an online video that you like, you can now capture and store it on your iOS device and keep it for offline viewing. And although that's an amazingly cool feature to have, it's just one of the things this app offers. Billed as a "Swiss Army Knife for the iPhone," Meteroric allows you to download and manage content, sync to Firefox, play files on a media player, and grab IOS playable videos.
