TouchMyApps is giving away 20 copies (thats right, 20!) of Xewton Music Studio ($19.99), a truly amazing music production app that is essentially a miniature Garage Band on the iPhone/iPod Touch. For those who’ve missed our review, here’s what Matthew had to say:
Xewton Music Studio is a fine example of an application that works well on the iDevice thanks to its intuitive touchscreen. Everything perfectly executed, it’s the epitome/prime example of the possibilities on the App Store. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it 1,000 times: if you’re a striving musician/music composer or just an average Joe who just wants to show off the capabilities of the iDevice, the you can’t go wrong with XMS.
Xewton has also just been updated with several improvements, including the very handy MIDI Import feature. With 20 promo codes for us to hand out, your chances of scoring one is quite sweet indeed. Contest rules can be found after the break. Good Luck, my aspiring musician friend!

Raving Manor in Review – Dragging Interactive Fiction kicking and screaming to the iPhone + Promo Codes!
Back in the days when the sky was bluer, the grass was greener, and PCs had text-only screens, a genre thrived which spawned what we know today as the Point-And-Click adventure. The name of that genre was Interactive Fiction and it was so named because it played more like a choose your own adventure book. At the time, there was little else to look at beside text descriptions and any actions had to be entered manually via the keyboard. Well, guess what, this genre was adapted and brought to the iPhone by a little company called Pockster.
TouchMyApps is giving away 3 copies of eWallet ($9.99), arguably the best and most comprehensive password/info manager apps for your iPhone/iPod Touch. Needless to say, with just about everyone entering some form of personal data into their iDevice, keeping sensitive info from prying eyes is a must. Chiffan recently reviewed illium Software’s eWallet and found it to be an excellent choice for anyone looking to protect their data.
If you need a robust, beautiful, easy-to-use, and full-featured PIM for your iPhone, then eWallet is THE choice for you. There is no need to mention such included features as 256bit AES encryption or entry searching when writing about such a product: it has it all.
While there are less costly alternatives at the App Store, you simply get what you pay for with eWallet. If you’re in the market for an app to keep all your personal information safe in one place, see the full contest details within on how you can win a copy for yourself. Good luck!
Xewton Music Studio offers a complete music production environment on the iPhone/iPod touch with features and a sound quality previously only known to desktop applications and expensive audio hardware.
It combines a piano keyboard, 21 professionally sampled instruments with sustain, a fully fledged 128-track sequencer, a note editor, reverb, real-time effects and much more on a user-friendly interface.
Matthew most recently reviewed Xewton Music Studio and absolutely loves the app, even calling it the GarageBand for the iDevice. A lofty statement no doubt, but developer Alexander Gross may very well have unleashed an indispensable app for every musician with an iPhone. Want to get your hands on a copy? Head on inside and see how you can enter this giveaway!
TouchMyApps is giving away 5 copies of MobiTech 3000′s JotNot ($4.99), a great little app that essentially transforms your iPhone into a handheld scanner. Equipped with an assortment of features and options, including the integration of the popular Evernote service, JotNot will make the process of capturing and digitizing documents much more seamless and bearable. SteveNaka reviewed the app and found that it worked as advertised.
Although JotNot is a really simple app, I definitely enjoyed using it and can see its usefulness. Yes you can just use your built in camera app to capture images, and yes there are apps available to edit images but why use 2 apps when you can get all those features and more in 1.
To enter for your chance at winning 1 of the 5 codes, simply check out our review of JotNot and tell us why you’d like to add this handy tool to your app collection in the comments section within. Winners will be selected randomly and the contest will close Sept 24th @ 11pm EST.

TouchMyApps writer ChiffaN recently reviewed Palm Heroes and it has quickly become one of his favorites on the iPhone.
To sum it all up, the game is awesome. It is the famous Heroes of Might & Magic in the palm of your hand (hence the name). While for the occasional gamer, it may be a bit difficult to master, anyone who invests the time to understand its mechanics will be rewarded by literally hundreds of hours of gameplay.

Without a doubt, we’ve all seen our share of puzzle games hit the App Store week after week. Some are easily forgettable, while others, like Dan Gilbert’s Triazzle, deserve a front page (app) spot on all iDevices. Anyone looking for a challenging and addictive puzzler should look no further than this classic game that has sold over 5 million copies since it was first released in 1991. From Jim’s review of the game:
Triazzle…is a complex and engaging puzzle game, like the hand-held puzzles (such as Rubik’s Cube) of yore, mixed with a logic puzzle that can give the right kind of gamer a sense of satisfaction at having the skill to succeed. I can definitely recommend it to gamers who like a little more strategy in their puzzle games. I’m giving Triazzle a Kiss It rating, and if you’re into this type of game that will challenge you, I think you’ll really enjoy it.
To enter for a chance to win 1 of 2 copies, simply check out our review and submit a comment within this contest post. Winners will be selected randomly and they’ll be announced on July 31 @ 2 pm EST. Good Luck !
