Create geometric trees with Geom-e-Tree for iPhone and iPad

Geom-e-Tree is a great geometry app that creates fractals-like trees and has been updated with new themes.

Create an infinite number of fractal-like trees with a few simple gestures. Surprise yourself and friends with the variety and complexity of the patterns you discover just by changing the number, angle, and the common ratio of your tree's branches. It's math and it's art - and it's totally captivating.

  • Touch the screen to make your tree grow and change.
  • Watch your tree morph in real time.
  • Increase the number of branches for fuller trees.
  • Lengthen or shorten the branches to make the canopy change shape.
  • Spread the branches up to 359 degrees for kaleidoscopic patterns.
  • Choose from 20 serious, zany, colorful themes.
  • Explore the many levels of this geometric landscape on your iPod, iPhone, or iPad!

We've added rainbow and "psychedelic" themes, some wild black and white themes (Magpie and Op Art), as well as a few monochromatic themes (India Ink and Pop Sticks). The new Themes tab displays all the themes and allows you to choose one for the current Tree. The Arboreturm remembers the themes of newly added trees. Geom-e-Tree also includes all the themes from our new version of Geom-e-Twee!

In mathematics, a fractal is is geometric shape that is split into parts, each of which is a smaller copy of the whole. This app is great twist on that idea and it's fun to watch your trees grow. They even snuck in some famous fractals! Even my 11 month old daughter enjoys this app - she stared at it in awe of the colorful trees growing.

Geom-e-Tree is available on the iPhone and iPad for $2.99. The junior app, Geom-e-Twee is available on the iPhone and iPad for free for a short time.

App for That: How to send videos to the cloud

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, George asks:

Next Month, I'm going to a YouTube gathering in London called Summer In The City. As its a YouTube gathering there is going to be alot of video taking. However, I'm only going to take my 16GB iPhone (and clothes and stuff), so was wondering if there was an app that would let me store the videos when I ran out of room, as I can't put it on a computer or anything.

To see what we found for George, follow along after the break!

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.
