Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, SportsTap, Zombies & Me, The Weather Channel, Reportage - TiPb Picks of the Week
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: Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor.
This game is a blast! You play a spider who's goal is to make it to the end of several levels from the lawn to closets. You can crawl anywhere on screen, jump with a swipe of you finger and create webs by creating a geometric pattern! The reason I like this game is that it is unique and fun! Catching bugs and finding the secret passages are a blast. The music is good, but gets a little repetitive. If you are in the mood for something different, give Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor a try! [$2.99 - iTunes link]
James' Pick: SportsTap
SportsTap is a free application that allows you to keep up with the latest sports news and scores. The app also utilizes Push Notifications to alert you when your favorite team starts a game, every time there is a score update, and when the game is complete. A necessity for any sports fan who can't watch the game! [Free - iTunes link]
Jeremy's Pick: Zombies & Me
Electronic Arts has put together this fun little game that is perfect for "killing" a few minutes out of your day. At $.99 it really is a quality game that's worth picking up. Did I mention you blow up zombies? [$0.99 - iTunes link]
Justin's Pick: The Weather Channel
With hurricane season starting to kick into gear with the first named storm this is definitely an app I want to have handy. I've used this app for a while and it has come a long way since the early versions. You can view radar, watch videos, check severe weather alerts, and much more. The only thing missing that I wish it had, especially for hurricane season, is push alerts for severe weather updates. [Free - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Reportage
What with Twitter once again going up and down faster than App Store rejection policies, I've found myself using Reportage to "tune in" to the people I follow so I can get updates in between the echoing silence of the great, not-even-whale-failing Twitter outages. The concept remains as specialized as it is killer, and if you want to read your way through different Twitter users, I'm hard pressed to think of a better paradigm than Reportage.
