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!
Chris' Pick: Hanged
My pick of the week is the game "Hanged". I first saw this app as a "must buy" mentioned in Entertainment Weekly magazine. It is a hangman game that uses nice graphics, cut scene animation, and a continuing storyline. The words you try to guess are from am ongoing letter from one lover to another. It is nicely done, and at $1.99 it is cheap enough to give it a try! [$1.99 - iTunes link]
Derrick's Pick: UPS Mobile
UPS Mobile helps you keep up to date on all your packages being shipped, I recently ordered some iPhone cases and other items online and this app really helped me keep up to date with my packages. [Free - iTunes link]
Georgia's Pick: Trip Journal
I have always been enamoured with this application; It has a beautiful interface and many different ways in which to use it. It's so fun an easy, even though I hate to write down trip information, I end up entering even quick day trips with my children. It can also keep track of my children's growth and places we went and use it to keep in touch with family members overseas. [$2.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Hippo Remote
Hippo Remote is in all basic sense - a Wifi remote for your computer (Mac or Windows) Getting Hippo remote to work with my Mac was the easiest thing to get it to work than any other remote Wifi remote I have used, as for the PC, Hippo Remote has a free VNC software that you can install to make the process easy. The neat thing about Hippo Remote, is that it contains "profiles" for multiple programs & OS's in addition to having a simple touch-pad-mouse. I ended up using Hippo remote for the Media PC I gave to my parents & they use their iPhones to simply control it. I highly recommend it. [$4.99 - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Audible.com
Getting from Montreal to Vegas and back this week for CES involved four flights and countless hours of waiting before, in between, and after. While I often listen to tech-focused podcasts on my iPhone, given the tsunami of tech I faced at CES, I decided I needed a diversion, a palate cleanser... a break! So, I used up a few lingering Audible.com credits, got myself some audio books, plugged in my headset, and tuned out (and only once nodded off!) From biographies to biotech, science fact to far-flung fantasy fiction, Audible has an every growing range of books to suit a wide range of tastes. If you're commuting across town, flying across country, or just trying to get through the daily grind, give Audible a try. Getting a monthly account gives huge savings on the individual titles.
