Chris's Pick: Snood

I am out in the field right now (yes Rene, another trip!). Since my hotel room TV has only three stations, I need some other entertainment. I downloaded Snood, remembering the game from when I was a grad student. Short games, story mode, multiplayer - this game has lots of different options and has kept me entertained so far. Give it a shot for only... [$3.99 - iTunes link]


James' Pick: Dailyburn

am forgetful. When I am at the gym, I need help in organizing my workout since I can never remember what I should be doing. Dailyburn helps me keep track of my workouts, but that's not all it does. I can track my weight, target weight and calorie intake as well. Dailyburn also syncs with so you hve an online backup of all of your data. A must for anyone who works out...and nest of all it's free! [Free - iTunes link]


Josh's Pick: Tap Tap Revenge: Dave Matthews Band

Tap Tap Revenge: Dave Matthews Band is a themed spin off of the popular iPhone game Tap Tap Revenge 2. The game is $4.99 in the app store but well worth the money with over 10 DMB tracks including 1 of their newest hits. Can't seem to stop playing this game. is a themed spin off of the popular iPhone game Tap Tap Revenge 2.

Matt's Pick #1: Hitchcock

Filmmakers rejoice! Hitchcock is the first iPhone app of its kind - a storyboard creation app! The app utilizes the iPhone's built in camera to take pictures as a basic background, then you add in the camera & subject movement (you can even add stand-ins) and viola you have a storyboard! I was very surprised at the ease of use and the fluid motion of adjusting objects in the app. Another thing that is super cool about it is that you can add audio & even play back your storyboard in "motion" & you have the ability to export to PDF, cool huh? [$19.99 - iTunes link]


Matt's Pick #2: DailyBurn

DailyBurn is the companion app to which is a nutrition & fitness tracking site. If you are one of those people that tracks their nutritional or fitness, then give DailyBurn a try. This app makes it more convenient to track your daily food intake and also allows you to track your workouts offline as you do them (in case your gym has poor reception). Best of all the whole thing is FREE (app & account.) [Free - iTunes link

Rene's Pick: Plantronics Voyager PRO

I can't get over this headset. Again, I have ears battered and worn through years of abuse and almost no BT headsets actually stay on them. This one does, and it looks so badass every time I slip it on I feel like barking "bring the rain!" The size and boom might mean it's not for everyone. But it's for me. And it's my pick. So there. Actually, here -- [$89.95 - iMore Store link]

I LOVE DailyBurn! It's the sweetest motivational tool for the gym and the app is the BEST for monitoring your nutritional goals. I can't give it higher praise.
