There are few games that can display an eye-rolling status message of “busting rad moves” during the loadup phase of the game and survive to tell about it, but Peggle might be able to get away with it. If one’s tongue stays firmly in one’s cheek while they play, that is. The graphics are cheerily cartoonish, and the gameplay is engaging and fun to match.
Finally, a recipe app that has it all. Recipes even the kids will eat, great quality photos, easy to follow directions, recipe box to save your favorites, & even a grocery list.
Fireflies is an enjoyable app for both kids and adults alike. To get the maximum effect, I recommend you play with Fireflies in the dark. Reminiscent of childhoods past, you’ll soon be immersed in the sound of crickets chirping their nighttime serenades as you gently reach out to capture the fireflies, flickering in and out between the cattails. This is relaxing entertainment. Your kids will love it, too!
I love books. The problem is I forget which books I have. Consequently, on too many occasions, I’ve bought the same book more than once. But not any more!
Now, I have xLibris by Option-X (v 1.2.1) installed on my iPhone. xLibris is a full-featured book database that sorts my books by title or author. I can easily search my book database while at the bookstore, and no more duplicates!
Deals is a great .99c app for finding the best deals on the Web from Amazon, Hot-Deals, Woot, & many more!
The New Yorker is known for cartoons and great covers -- some of which are saved for years. The cover for the next issue was created like none other before: it was painted on an iPhone. Artist Jorge Colombo drew the street scene, with an iconic hot dog vendor as his focal point, while standing at a street corner, swiping his iPhone's screen.
Now here's an app that's fun for your kids, and it will improve their math skills! It's called PopMath Basic Math (Popsoft, v. 1.4). Kids love popping bubbles and that's exactly what they do in this app. They pop bubbles and learn math at the same time!
My husband, son and I all installed the Mover app (Infinite Labs v. 1.0.2) yesterday so we could try it out. It was fast to install and easy to send a photo. And it's FREE!

It’s truly amazing how many games and accessories come out each week for the iPhone and iPod touch, making it tough to keep up on which are hot and which are duds (and there are plenty of both). Functional and Fun are two words that come to mind with the following, check them out!
