PokerTower is my new favorite Poker game hands down.

PokerTower, in all its 8 bit goodness, is a very addictive, pick up and play, casual poker game. Simply drag your finger around the grid of cards to create a hand. An awesome 8 bit soundtrack fills the background while you get sucked into the coolest way to play poker ever.

GameCenter achievements and highscores keep it social while four distinct game types keep it interesting.


I always wanted to learn circuit design but this is way more fun.

Diode is a fun puzzle + maze game that brings circuit design down to my level. Four stages including Paper, Cotton, Stone and Metal separate the game and its different types of diodes. Diode has a unique challenge mixing time, limited options, and a reverse path finding style brain teasers.

GameCenter highscore challenges and 40 circuit building levels make this a well rounded, fun game.


Genby’s hungry and you know what they say about keeping an octopus waiting. Wait you don’t? Was hoping you could tell me.

Help feed Genby some underwater treats in this very cute puzzler. The game features an awesome control scheme where you simply drag your finger to create food particles, which follow your finger like gravity.

Watch out for garbage and other obstacles on the way to Genby’s growling stomach!

Elastic Me

Elastic Me is another cute and stylish game featuring very unique game play mechanics.

Elastic Me is an endless runner but not your typical Temple Run clone. The twist is you’re running across an endless elastic band!

Dodge obstacles and collect coins by stretching the elastic and letting player walk on his merry way. Let go early to bounce. Use your other finger to slice obstacles before they reach you.

GameCenter support and a great soundtrack help make this a must download game.

Pig Hunt Space with thumbShot

Hold your hand up. Now take aim at your cat. Fire!

Didn’t work? Thats because you lack ThumbShot! Pig Hunt Space uses an awesome Thumbshot camera sensing feature to let you shoot down space pigs with just your finger guns!

Built on the classic duck hunt arcade style gameplay, Pig Hunt Space is takes fun game and makes it uniquely awesome with this one of a kind control system. You’ve got to try it out yourself!


I love to eat! And I also love to cook. MeetMyRecipe makes both a little easier.

MeetMyRecipe lets you browse and save shared recipes over its network. Recipes include beautiful pictures, ingredients, instructions, regions, and more. And of course you can create and share you own recipes with the rest of the community.

MeetMyRecipe also has a handy shopping list so when you pick a recipe, just tell it how many people you’re cooking for and it will generate a list for everything you need. Very handy feature for this awesome app.

Dead Stars

Dead Stars is like playing pool with a pistol and zombies.

All the stars are dead and the rest of the planet is infected. Its up to you and your pistol to save the day.

Dead Stars has some awesome bouncing physics along with four kinds of ammo for your pistol. Use your laser sight to line up your shot and see how much you can destory with a single bullet. Less bullets, higher score.

With over 100 levels you’ll be busy saving the world for awhile.


Concept could be one of the most versatile brainstorming apps out there.

Concept gives you a giant scrollable area to pin your ideas. It’s got support for all sorts of objects from sticky notes to your own photos. You could storyboard out your next movie idea or setup a project flow chart.

You can have multiple separate boards for each idea. And of course its got sharing build in. Its dead simple interface make this my new go to tool for flow charting and planning.
