Track your expenses with Touch Expense

Touch Expense, by MobiApps, is an iPhone application designed for tracking your expenses.

Touch Expense is an innovative and easy way to put your daily expenses. Insert and tracking your daily expenses has never been faster and enjoyable.

  • Navigate between days easily through the dynamic calendar control;
  • Enter your expenses with an innovative slider;
  • Optimized for iOS 4 and Retina Display;
  • Categorize your expenses with icons ready for use;
  • See your monthly expenses based on categories through a pie chart;
  • Multi language.

I'm not sure how I feel about the UI for entering in expenses. You must slide your fingers up (and down) the big circular sliders to enter the amounts - the left one is for dollars and the right one is for cents. Having a keypad pop up would be faster, in my opinion. The look of the UI, however, is really neat and makes me want to get used to the entry method. In fact, the look reminds me of my favorite weight tracking app, Weightbot.

Touch Expense is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.

Never miss an appointment with Calendar with Alarm for iPhone

Calendar with Alarm is an iPhone calendar app that, well, lets you set alarms.

Never miss an appointment again! CalAlarm is an elegantly designed user friendly calendar that adds an alarm to your appointments, so that you are no longer committed to the two short standard calendar beeps.

  • Easy and quick navigation through days and weeks and years.
  • Quickly add/edit multiple alerts.
  • Copy events.
  • Set defaults for new events.
  • Custom week numbers.
  • Distinguishes calendars with the same name but of different type.
  • Lists upcoming and overdue alarms.
  • Repeats continuously till acknowledged.
  • Snoozes with variable intervals.
  • Customize Quick Alert values, Snooze screen and birthdays alarms.
  • Choice of 25 alarm sounds.
  • Customizes sounds for different calendars.
  • All CalAlarm alarms on/off switch.
  • Sets local notifications.
  • Works with all calendars that use the iPhone calendar database (iCal, MobileMe, Exchange, CalDAV, Google calendar, etc.).
  • Syncs with these calendars.

It drives me crazy that the iPhone's native calendar only allows two alerts for an event. For entries that require more alerts, I normally add them to MobileMe in iCal on my Mac. Calendar with Alarm seems like a much better solution.

Calendar with Alarm is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.

Skyfire VideoQ for iPhone and iPad now available

Skyfire Labs have released their new iPhone and iPad apps, Skyfire VideoQ, as a method of watching flash videos.

Skyfire VideoQ™ is a new kind of App that lets you watch Flash Videos while browsing with Safari or any iPad/iPhone browser! Simply click the ‘Mail Link to this Page’ on any browser to email the video URL to your ‘Queue’ and open the App.

  • Simply register your email address in the App.
  • Use the “Mail Link to this Page” button in Safari or any browser to email a webpage with a Flash video to video@skyfire.com.
  • Videos sent from your email address will appear in your Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Copy the URL of a webpage that has a Flash video and open Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Install our bookmarklet into Safari. Once you find a page with a Flash video, just use the bookmarket to send the page to your Skyfire VideoQ.

One of the biggest complaints about iOS is the incompatibility with Flash. Skyfire VideoQ may not completely fill that gap, but since a huge amount of Flash content on the web is video, it's a great solution for many people.

Skyfire VideoQ is available on the iPhone and iPad for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.

Siege Hero updated with Age of Discovery, 75 new levels

Armor Games have updated their iPhone and iPad game, Siege Hero.

Tap the screen to fire. Find the weak spots. Loot the treasures. Save the innocent villagers.

Tear down the 150 castles across two Ages. If you're good enough to earn Gold on each castle you'll unlock the extra looting levels in the Treasure Map. Over 5-hours of gameplay with much more to come.

The update includes:

  • Age of Discovery now available. Use your Siege skills to free the oppressed and become the Hero once again.
  • 75 new levels
  • 6 new characters
  • 7 new achievements
  • New Weapons
  • Many hours of challenging gameplay

I've played some of the first few levels of Siege Hero and I'll definitely be playing some more. It reminds me a little of Angry Birds, but instead of catapulting birds in the 3rd person, I'm throwing weapons in the first person. It's fun!

Siege Hero is available for $0.99 on the iPhone and $3.99 on the iPad. Screenshots after the break.
