tipb_pick_of_the_week

Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.

So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!

Chad's Pick: Chipotle

The iPhone is revolutionary. Why? I just placed an order for a Chipotle Burrito on my iPhone! You can create an online account, give your order a name, pick a location and voila! The order interface is easy and clean. You can add multiple orders and pay wih your credit card all on your iPhone. Yummy! [Free - iTunes link]

Chris' Pick: Lion Pride

I just downloaded and have been trying Lion Pride. This game is similar in some ways to games like Harbor Master and Flight Control - except you are a lion trying to eat your prey! You control a lion or lions, and try to hunt your prey - between stalking and outright chasing your food items, between different strategies for different prey, the game can be quite involving. The normal game is $.99, but if you want to try it first, there is a "lite" demo for free. [$0.99 - iTunes link

James' Pick: iVillain Theme (Jailbreak)

I tried not to. I really tried not to jailbreak. I was happy with my "stock" iPhone 3GS. Then I saw this theme...and I liked it. I could resist no more. If you have seen the HTC Sense UI, you will recognize it immediately as a "port" of the skin to the iPhone. It was easy to install and configure. There are also a few variations of the them included in the link. [Free - Web link]

Jeremy's Pick: Local Concerts

Great free app for anyone who likes to be kept in the loop of local concerts. Too many times I find out one of my favorite bands played a live show after the fact, not anymore. Local Concerts pushes all new local live concerts directly to your iPhone. Can't beat that for the price of.... [Free - iTunes link] photo

Leanna's Pick: Enigmo 2

Enigmo was one of the first apps I purchased when the App Store was launched and I loved it. Now Pangea Software has recently released Enigmo 2 and it's awesome. Instead of manipulating only droplets, you must also direct lazers and plasma with reflectors and gravity balls in 3-dimensional space. If you enjoyed playing the orignal Enigmo, I highly recommend picking up Enigmo 2. [$3.99 - iTunes link]

Matt's Pick: Otterbox Defender iPhone case

I have been eyeing this case for quite some time & finally I figure I "needed" it. The case is quite worth the price. It literally "seals" your iPhone inside so that no dirt can get inside, I'd definitely say it is spash-proof, but not waterproof. The only really exposed area is the speakers. I unintentionaly did a six foot drop "test" in the case and survived. The only issue I encountered was where - the overlay screen protector sticks to the iPhone screen creating a watermarked effect. It's easily solved with an anti-glare screen protector (at least this is the one I used.) [$44.95 - iMore Store link]

Rene's Pick: iPhone 3.1 + iTunes 9

Had. To. Be. Picked. (Especially after Leanna stole Enigmo 2 from me!) While on the surface iPhone 3.1 appears to contain... nothing on the surface, when you combine it with iTunes 9, all the much-needed bug fixes and feature fill-ins really start to shine -- especially with things like in-iTunes app management, and Genius for Apps. Unless you're jailbroken or desperate for a few early weeks of AT&T MMS and tethering, get this update now. [Free - Web link]

I thought 3.1 was supposed to open the video APIs for devs? I want to be able to splice my vids on the device. That's a great name for an app-- Splice on Device. Someone make it!

I need help with the 3.1(.1) OS... I thought you could do Genius Mixes directly on your iPod, but I can't find it xD

I have the otterbox defender and love it! I didn't buy a extra screen protector to get rid of the watermark instead I made sure the inside of
the screen protector was clean as well as the iPhone screen and ran the tip of my index finger side to side and working top to bottom of the inside of the protector then put the phone in the case and presto the watermark is gone!

Just downloaded local concerts. It's pretty sweet. I don't see where you can customize push notifications though.

I also have the otterbox case and when it comes to protection this is it, your iphone is as safe as it gets!

@Bruno It took me a while to find the Genius Mixes too. I'm guessing it is easier for new iTunes users than upgrades.
@Chris The app is well done, but I miss watching them make my burrito in front of me. Probably good for a group wanting to get their Chipotle to go. Organize all the orders and submit, then stop by, grab your meal, and find a place for a picnic. It reminds me of ording Papa John's on my iPhone through their website. I was trying to explain it to my mom and then she asked why I couldn't just call the store and order over the phone. Doh!

OTTERBOX DEFENDER-After spending hundreds of $$ on the perfect case... it seems they all have their own ticks. Although I am quite satisfied with the all around protection, closures of all ports, and the anti-glare screenfix helps. I don't like the bulk & it being a lint magnent.
My suggetion is the Contour Case with alterations. Anti-glare shield helps from finger smudges, a sync port protector from Switcheasy, and a piece of clear plastic to protect unused headphone hole. It's no Otterbox, but I prefer the small compact feel.

Living at the coast I anticipate our first major rain to see how my Otterbox Defender fares. Overall I really like it BUT I was very used to not having streaks with the anti-glare protector. Now I'm back to a screen that's dirtier than the original iPhone screen.
It would be really nice if the OBD came with the anti glare/anti smudge option! Can't imagine having 3 layers plus screen to aliviate watermarks and smudge.

You wouldn't believe it but I've wasted all day digging for some articles about this. You're a lifesaver, it was an excellent read and has helped me out to no end. Cheers!
