Daily Deeds - If you need a little motivation for getting things done, Daily Deeds is worth checking. The app lets you create “habits”, which can then be checked off as you complete them everyday. The daily view mode provides a quick visual overview of how you’ve been doing with color labels and check marks for everyday you’ve completed the task. You can also back up your data to Dropbox and create PDF reports to share via email.
the LeftOvers - Predominantly an online multiplayer strategy game, it certainly has a Plants vs. Zombies (Review) feel to it. Instead of zombies though, kids are now left to reshape the world and wipeout other “LeftOver” factions as all the adults have mysterious vanished. Setup your defenses, deploy various units and storm enemy bases. Best played against a friend online as there’s really no single player mode to speak of.
The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic - A critically acclaimed action/puzzle game, you play as J. Jitters a nervous Nellie Pudding trapped in a haunted house. You must lead him to safety by manipulating the train tracks, fighting back against the “scary monsters” and solving various puzzles (see video trailer here). It’s one of the more delightful games you’ll come across on iOS. Note: the iPad version is a separate download.
These freebies may not last long, so be sure to grab ‘em pronto!
Luminance - A well received photo editing app that allows you to easily add effects to your images. You can choose from a host of built-in presets, crop out unwanted areas, manipulate the order of edited layers to create unique effects and more. You can even copy edits made to one photo and apply them to others in your library to help save time. Luminance is universal, so it’s good to go on both the iPhone and iPad.
Kevin’s BREAK’EM - If you missed this one previously, Kevin’s Break’em is free once again to celebrate the upcoming release of the lite version. It’s essentially a breakout type game, though it sports some of the most unique visuals for the genre (graphics are rendered in 3D art). A second update coming next week will also pack an all-new game mode. If you like tilting your iPhone and bouncing balls off a paddle, grab it!
Topping Pro - A highly rated app that lets you create your own wallpapers without the need to jailbreak your iPhone/iPod Touch. Choose from a bevy of professionally designed backgrounds, add “toppings” to customize your masterpiece and set them as wallpapers on your Home and/or Lock screens.
“Three for Free” is back and here are 3 apps/games that you can now download for free (for limited time):
AcePlayer - Much like the GoodPlayer (TMA Review) app, AcePlayer can play basically any video file format you throw at it (WMV, AVI, MKV, RMVB, RM, XVID, MP4, 3GP, MPG etc), meaning you no longer have to convert your movies and tv shows before uploading to your iDevice. The app has a built-in UPnP client so you can stream video from most UPnP/DLNA media servers.
Fragger - This casual catapult-type game is among the more popular titles on the iPhone and has been played on Miniclip.com as a free flash game over 100 million times. Simply use your finger to aim and launch grenades to kill all enemies throughout 340 levels and 11 different worlds. Game Center leaderboards lets you see just how good you are at tossing ‘em mini “pineapples”.
RuneMasterPuzzle - A fairly new and rather promising match 3 game, RuneMasterPuzzle allows blocks (or Rune Stones) to be swapped in 8 directions (horizontal, vertical, diagonal). The “Spirit” counter, which shows the number of total swaps remaining (it can be recharged), along with the various power ups and combo make this an intriguing prospect among the crowded match 3 genre.
Burn the Rope Worlds - The followup to the hit Burn the Rope, Worlds comes packed with 100 new levels, 4 themed worlds and an all-new Endless Burn mini-game. The premise: burn as much rope as you can, though the fire only burns upwards – meaning you’ll have to tilt & turn your iDevice around to keep the flame alive.
TrafficVille HD - Think Flight Control (Review) minus the planes and line drawing. Supposedly the first “traffic control” game for iOS, you must manage multiple lights and vehicles and ensure that the flow of traffic keeps humming along. It’s universal, so it can be enjoyed on both your iPhone and iPad.
XenoCube SD - A unique take on the Match 3 genre, it’s almost like you’re playing Bejeweled on a rubic’s cube. And being that the playground’s a cube, you can rotate it to make your matches (thus giving it a 3D feel to the game). Power ups, explosive effects and 5 game modes should excite all Match 3 fanatics.
