A dark strategy game called Plague Inc. recently infected the top spot in the iTunes App Store. It puts you in charge of the evolution and spread of a globe-spanning virus, and as the epidemic spreads, your disease has to develop new traits, symptoms, and levels of deadliness to avoid immunization and eventual obliteration.
Letter Gap is a super casual game for word lovers. The objective is simple. You are given the first and last letter of a six letter word with the other four letters scrambled below it. It's then your job to correctly spell the word as quickly as possible. The faster you get it, the more points you get -- and you have just 2 minutes to get through as many words as you can.
Agenda is a beautiful alternative to the iPhone and iPad's built-in Calendar app by the great folks at App Savvy. In addition to performing the normal tasks you'd expect any good calendar app to do, Agenda also lets you confirm appointments via text message or email from directly within the app. Similarly, you can inform necessary parties if you're going to be late.
Heroes Call recently made a big splash onto the App Store, touting itself as a viable mobile alternative for Diablo fans.

Carved makes iPhone and iPad skins with a twist -- an "exotic wood" twist. You see, these aren't your usual high-tech films or fancy carbon fiber stickers, these are custom crafted in Elkhart, Indiana from durable, sustainable woods. In fact, Carved claims every one of their iPhone and iPad skins is comes from a single block of raw wood. I, of course, asked to review one with an iMore logo.
If you're anything like me, the first thing you do after finding out you (or your spouse) is pregnant is dive into the App Store looking for the best pregnancy app. There's a lot to choose from, so we're going to take a closer look at iPregnant Pregnancy Tracker.
I first had the pleasure of trying out Adonit's Writer for iPad, then one of the newest, thinnest Bluetooth keyboards for iPad, at Macworld 2012. And it was impressive. By choosing to incorporate a full case, but in a uniquely interesting manner, is it still impressive enough?
NCSettings for iPhone and iPad adds a row of system toggles to Notification Center for commonly used settings such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, brightness, and airplane mode. It's very similar to the system toggles you'd find in SBSettings but integrated a way that may be more appealing to some users.
