Every week, the editors and writers at iMore carefully select some of our favorite, most useful, most extraordinary apps, accessories, gadgets, and websites. This week's selections include a role-playing game, a board game, a comics apps, a photo filter app for Mac, and a game that will grab the heart of every grammar nazi.
To see what we picked, follow along after the break!
Yes, you read that right. Facebook has released an iPhone app dedicated to their most useless feature -- poke. Stop rolling your eyes! They've improved upon it! With Facebook Poke now you can attach a message, photo, or video to your pokes and choose how long the recipient can see it for (max of 10 seconds). And if the recipient takes a screenshot of your poke, Facebook Poke will notify you with a special icon next to the person's name. This app is just screaming "use me for sexting!" Now you can roll your eyes.
Facebook has pushed out small updates to Facebook Pages Manager and Facebook Camera that include security, performance, and bug fixes as well as the ability to swipe to delete comments in Facebook Pages Manager. More notable than what's included in these updates, however, is what's not included -- iPhone 5 support in Facebook Camera.
Less than two weeks after adding the new Willow filters and other tweaks, Instagram for iPhone has added yet another filter called Mayfair. This update was actually available last night caused a bit of an uproar with a misleading privacy toggle. It appeared that private accounts were switched to public, but it turns out that was only a bug and private accounts were actually still private, and a new update today fixes that bug.
Gas Cubby, our favorite mileage tracker, fuel, and maintenance tracker for iPhone, has been updated to version 2.5 and brings a refreshed interface to the app, along with support for the 16:9 iPhone 5, and Launch Center Pro.
The makers of the highly addicting Cut the Rope game have released a new puzzle adventure called Pudding Monsters. Just as cute and just as addicting as Cut the Rope, Pudding Monsters is destined to also be a huge hit. The goal is to help the adorable little Pudding Monsters (I think they look more like Jell-O) save their friends from the cold-hearted fridge owner by getting them to stick together.
Just one week following its huge update that introduced filters, Flickr for iPhone has been updated again with a few more improvements including better Facebook sharing and more options for notifications.
