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: Real Racing.
This game is absolutely phenomenal! If you like racing simulators (al-la Gran Turismo style), this is the game for you. You have a few modes of play and two car views: in-car and behind the car. The car physics and graphics are spot on. This game is well worth the admission price. [$9.99 - iTunes link]
Chris' Pick: Lemonade Tycoon
This was a game that I purchased for the PC a while back, and it has made it's way to the iPhone. A classic business simulation, it's a fun, quick, easy to learn game, and can be used to distract yourself for a short time if needed.
James' Pick: Paper Toss
Who among us hasn't balled up a piece of paper and tried to throw it in a nearby trash receptical? Paper Toss is a game that emulates just that...and since no trees are harmed it is eco-friendly! With varying degrees of distance and wind (fan) resistance, you can try and land as many paper balls in a row as you can. [Free - iTunes link]
Jeremy's Pick: Push Notification
Need I say more?
[Ed: It's coming this Wednesday in iPhone 3.0, enjoy!]
Leanna's Pick: Expositor
Last week I purchased a Nikon D90 and one of the first things I did was search for an app to assist me in my photography. Of the three I downloaded, Expositor was the quickest and easiest way to calculate the settings needed for a particular situation. It has a simple slide-rule interface so you can easily choose the ISO, F-stop, or shutter speed you want and visually see how it affects the other settings. You can also fine tune your exposure by increments of 1/3 stops. If you're looking for an exposure calculator, I recommend giving Expositor a try. [$1.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: TwitterBox
TwitterBox seems to be my second most used Twitter app at the moment. If you are one of those people that follows A TON of people, but still actually wants read you family, friends, news or other Twitter accounts? Then this might be an app to consider. TwitterBox allows you to sort the people (an searches) you are following into categories (known as Boxes in-app). It is a quick and and intuitive application that also includes all the standard features of Twitter. As a plus it also has Auto-updating. [$1.99 - iTunes link]
[Ed: You can also use it -- or any Twitter client -- to help Matt upgrade his iPhone 2G to an iPhone 3G S!]
Rene's Pick: iPhone 3.0
Yeah, it's not coming out until Wednesday, but like Jeremy's pick above, it's just too good to ignore. System-wide cut, copy, and paste, and Spotlight search are just the tip of the iceberg. (Just don't enable shake-to-shuffle and then try dancing to your iPhone music -- you won't get through a song!)
For iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G owners, you're pretty much getting a refreshing new iPhone experience -- for free -- again. Jailbreakers may want to hold off, but for everyone else -- enjoy! [Free - Available via iTunes this Wednesday!]
