As a typical guy, I never compare prices or haggle/ bargain/ negotiate when I buy stuff, unless it’s a big purchase like a big-screen TV, computer or whatever. I never shop around comparing how much brand A of sugar is to brand B. So when I got this app, I thought that I will have no use for it. However, people around me thought otherwise…
Excite Bike, California Games, Skate or Die… Bike or Die
Bike or Die 2.
It has been a long time coming but extreme bicycling from the comfort of your living room sofa or bus seat has landed at an iPhone near you. Bike or Die 2 is the follow up to Bike or Die for Palm OS that should doubtless be called, ‘Bike and Die’. It is 2500 levels of biking death that stretches the genre of physics simulators to new and bloody lengths.
The slideshow function found in the stock Photos app on the iPhone/iPod Touch is very basic indeed. With only several transition types and a limited amount of options to choose from, users maybe left wanting more. Enter Photo Show, a fully featured and easy to use slideshow maker that will give you more control and the ability to add that personal touch to all your photos.
The name Bloomberg is quite synonymous with the world of business and financial news. It also is a leader in providing timely market data and technology (its Bloomberg terminals are quite sweet). So it makes quite a lot of sense for this titan to have one of the best finance apps on the Iphone.

Ian Marsh, the brains behind the popular App Store title Hanoi Plus and the highly enjoyable Scoops, has taken on the Word Game genre with the release of the very cool and fun Textropolis. Unlike the majority of Word titles that lack a theme or some much needed flavor, Textropolis delivers by taking you around the world and have you finding hidden words in each city as you progress.
I remember spending heaps of time as a kid playing with and testing out all kinds of paper airplanes, trying to make them glide further and faster. While that hobby is long gone, Clever Coding has revived those fun memories with their release of the beautiful 3D flyer Paper Pilot. Developed using the powerful iPhone game engine Unity, Paper Pilot will have you flying a paper airplane through gorgeously rendered 3D environments via the accelerometer and collecting floating paperclips in the least amount of time possible.
Project4Pros has just released an anonymous web browser for the iPhone/iPod Touch. For those who have a habit of covering their surfing tracks (maybe you don’t want your girlfriend to know you are secretly ordering her a dozen roses for no good reason or are simply browsing for engagement rings…rrrright) by constantly clearing Mobile Safari’s history, then you may find Incognito rather handy.
With the apparent death of the floppy drive in the mid-1990s, there were a number of replacement technologies that competed for the title as heir-apparent. These included:
