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: Modern Combat: Sandstorm
The game is a FPS in the Middle East theater. You play a marine who is sent kit numerous missions to take-out the bad guys. The framerate is smooth adn there are a few different usable control options. This game has good AI with enemies hidIng and using strategy to get you. There is a promised multiplayer mode coming soon, we can only hope that it is Internet-based play. If you are looking for a fresh FPS with good action, smooth framerate and potentially awesome multiplayer, check out Modern Combat: Sandstorm. [$6.99 - iTunes link]
James' Pick: MyFantasyTeams Pro
I can't remember when I started, but I love Fantasy Football. I am in few leagues with friends and coworkers alike. And as I have said before, I am forgetful. Therefore, setting my roster can be a pain if I am not in front of a computer. MyFantasyTeams Pro is an app I have been looking for. It is compatible with all Yahoo fantasy teams and allows you to perform all of the tasks needed to make sure your fantasy team is ready for the week. You can submit lineup changes, add/drop players and even trade players from within the app. A must for all Yahoo fantasy addicts. [$3.99 - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: DSLR Camera Remote Professional Edition
Use your iPhone as a remote for your Canon or Nikon DSLR with DSLR Camera Remote Pro. Not only does it act as a shutter release, but you can adjust settings like shutter speed, aperture, white balance and even bracketing, rapid fire, and self timer. Get instant previews of photos you take and for supported cameras, you can see through your camera's viewfinder with LiveView. Although this only works over wifi, DSLR Camera Remote Pro is an awesome app and well worth the price. [$19.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Quick Voice Pro
Quick Voice Pro is similar to voice-memo type applications, but with one major advantage - it allows you to convert your voice memo to text via e-mail, of course the recording has to be 30 seconds or less. I, however, found that I could get a lot of information in that amount of time & the conversion is scary accurate. The memos take about 5-15mins to convert depending on length. This is recommend for anyone on the go. [$0.99 - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Mophie Juice Pack Air
So we just got the Mophie Juice Pack Air in stock, and I'll be writing it up soon enough, but yesterday I was outside helping a friend build a fence, took some video, stuck my iPhone back in my pocket, and later felt it getting really hot. Yup, I'd forgotten to turn the video off, so there it was recording away -- in my pocket -- battery gasping and begging for mercy. Normally I'd have to go find a plug and be without my iPhone for a while, but since I just happened to have the Mophie with me, I slapped it on, and was good to go for the rest of the day. (Just make sure you're on firmware 3.0.1 as it fixed some issues with battery chargers). [$79.99 - iMore Store link]
