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!
This week it has to be Resident Evil 4 Mobile. The controls are much better than the previous Resident Evil game and the character models are better too. This version plays as little bit-size chunks of storyline. You still get your weapons, attaché case and more. They even included mercinary mode! If you like Resident Evil games, then go out and grab this latest version! [$7.99 - iTunes link]
This game is similar to the wildly popular Flight Control game, except you are dealing with ships instead of planes. The idea is the same - guide the ships to the port, allow them to unload their cargo, and then guide them away. It gets a little more complicated with larger ships (that move more slowly) as well as the fact you have to unload cargo (and larger ships carry more cargo). With multiple "ports" as well as dangers (whirlpools, pirates, etc) thrown in, the game has been taking up far too much of my time! (PS - look for a review of it coming soon!) [$0.99 - iTunes link]
As the owner of 1000 iPods, I clearly like my music. And whether or not other people like it, I love to sing along. Enter TuneWiki. This free application takes advantages of using newly released API in the 3.0 firmware to call an instance if the iPod player. The app then displays the lyrics if the song you are listening to. TuneWiki also allows you to see the real-time top 50 charts of other countries and 'blip technilogy' so you van share what you are listening to with your friends in social networks. [Free - iTunes link]
I guess I've been out of school too long and haven't used any apps I think are "Back to Schoolish". Unless it's back to party school college! Cocktails+
This is based off the card game Set. Each cookie has 4 properties: flavor, decoration, filling, and number of decorations. The objective of Cookiecombo is to find a match of 3 where for each property, every cookie is the same or they're all different. I'm not exactly good at Cookiecombo, but it's fun and great for my brain! [$1.99 - iTunes link]
SimplyTweet is easily one of the best Twitter applications for the iPhone. Recently I have been crazy busy and not on Twitter as much. Since SimplyTweet utilities push notifications for @replies & DMs, this app has helped me quickly keep in touch with people during my busy schedule. Simply is simply one of the the best Twitter applications. [$4.99 - iTunes link]
