Super Phantom Cat ($1.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: An iOS platformer that is heavily inspired by the past to deliver a familiar style in a new age package. The game features the classic elements of jumping on enemies, collecting stars, pounding blocks, finding hidden areas, and more. The game is familiar, and yet still feels like a fresh new challenge with the level design, pacing of enemies, and the inclusion of new abilities. Super Phantom Cat features five unique worlds with each one filled with different challenges.
VisualRuler ($1.99 -> Free, iPhone): The app can turn your iPhone into a ruler by simply snapping a picture. You need to use a card (credit card, ID card, etc) as a reference object in the photo, and then the comparative dimensions are used for the object you actually want to measure.
WordHue ($0.99 -> Free, Universal): A word game that challenges you with letters and colors. The game has a similar set-up to Scrabble, but infuses the board with different color hues. Your goal is to not only make words, but do so using tiles of the target color to fill the color meter, and advance levels.
air radio tune ($0.99 -> Free, Universal): A music player app that offers access to over 30,000 different free online radio stations. You can search for specific stations, and save particular ones as favorites. The app also supports time shifting live streams to rewind, and always jump back to live.
