Time Management aficionados are no doubt familiar with Flo’s Dash spawning franchise. In fact, Diner Dash is arguably the most well known among the crowded and addictive genre. So if you’re a fan of TM games and are new to the series, this freebie update is for you! Playfirst has dropped two of their iPhone titles to free for a limited time: Cooking Dash (TMA Review) and Wedding Dash (TMA Review). Normally priced at $2.99, both games feature 50+ levels and plenty of mad-finger-dashing challenges. Additional IAPs are available should you wish to unlock other locales ($0.99 each).
Here’s a worthy download for all you racing fans. Gameloft has just dropped the latest in their popular racing franchise Asphalt 6: Adrenaline to free for the iPhone and iPad (down from $4.99 and $6.99 respectively). With 42 dream cars to choose from, online multiplayer and awesome visuals (the game will look even better on the iPad 2), this freebie shouldn’t be missed and will keep you in occupied for next little while. The offer likely won’t last very long, so make sure you grab it ASAP.
Do you travel across different time zones and/or find the built-in World Clock function lacking on your iPhone? If so, you may want to check out The World Clock. Now free for a day (down from $1.99), TWC is a universal app that features alarm functionality, scrollable map with day-night visuals, time converter and a database of more than 192,000 cities/towns from 230 countries. I was first recommended this app several months ago by a colleague of mine and with all the traveling I do for work, TWC has been a trusty sidekick on both my iPhone and iPad ever since. Considering how the iPad doesn’t even have its own stock Clock app, The World Clock is definitely a good pick up at this price point.
