From the makers of iQuarium comes the popular app called Let's Create! Pottery. You can grab this hot list game in the app store for free (the Lite version), so go fire up that kiln!
Who doesn't remember the planetarium? I thought it was the best school field-trip that was ever conceived, way back when I was a kid (besides the Smithsonian Institute), but I digress. Star Walk version 5 (which is the point of this post) is a pocket-sized planetarium that brings the cosmos to you, adding a ton of cool stuff to this already great educational app.
TTL is one of my favorite time-wasters, and now you can try a free lite version, or even grab the full game for only 99 cents (limited time offer)! You gotta at least check out the lite version (only classic mode--my fav--with limited weapons), if you aren't yet familiar with the giddy exhilaration of squirming through a wall of angry dots. Read on for more PR info...
You can record on the new 4G iPod touch (without external accessories), but if you want to bump up the quality of your recordings, you might need the new Blue Mikey from Blue Microphone (see my iPod/iPhone recording article here). It is not yet compatible with 4G devices, but the great free Blue FiRe App will work with the built-in mic.
If you want to make your fancy new iPod or iPhone do something attractive and relaxing while docked (maybe to keep the screen from locking), you might check out iQuarium. The free version includes new updates for Retina graphics, AI improvements, and stability tweaks. The app is currently at 3 stars, and has taken some heat for not loading the fish for previous free users. Check it out here...
A perfect storybook app for the kids. Released by iStoryTime with children entertainment and education in mind, the Megamind book app is available for $2.99 on the App Store. Read on for more PR info and links...
One of my favorite apps (and amongst my first reviews here at iphonelife) is getting a major update and is 2 years old now. Rumor has it we will be doing a Star Walk code giveaway (once V5 is approved), and for 24 hours, you can grab some great astronomy/educational apps for a reduced price. Go grab Geo Walk here (free), and Solar Walk here (99 cents)... Stay tuned for the giveaway, and read on for a list of new features coming to SW.
I have played some offbeat games in my day, but Blork has to take the prize as one of the oddest, but also amongst the coolest (at least in terms of concept)! Not over the top on steroids cool, maybe, but understated cool at least! It's currently free in the App Store, so won't cost you a thing to experiment a bit if you want to try something a little different.
Gun Bros is now available on the App store... Looks like another awesome scroller/shooter game for the review queue. Reminds me of one of my current favs called BloodNGuns, which my daughter clued me in on.
SPB has been making great mobile software for years. Their Mobile Shell product probably kept many a die-hard Windows Mobile user from ditching completely when the iPhone came out. They have some great iPhone apps (SPB TV, and SPB Wallet...two of my favs), but they haven't struck me as prolific game producers (see my Quads review here).
