Resident Evil, AAA Discounts, Gazette, Twitterlator Pro, SnapDat, Peggle - TiPb iPhone App 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: Resident Evil Degeneration
Like Resident Evil? Look no further then Resident Evil Degeneration. I personal enjoy this game. You get the over-the-shoulder view from RE 4/5 with touch control plus all of the other facets of the Resident Evil Universe including herb, keys and upgrades shop with different weapons. Tip: to do a 180 degree spin, press down for a second without your weapon drawn! [$6.99 - iTunes link]
Chris' Pick: AAA Discounts.
Nothing like finding a way to get discounts at no charge! While I was on vacation last week, I would use this app to see what potential restaurants and stores I might be able to show my card to get a discount. The app lets you select what kind of facility you are looking for (shopping, dining, lodging, etc) and then uses the GPS to find places near you that give you a discount just by showing your card! It's fast, it saves you money, and best of all it is free. Every AAA member should have this app on their iPhone. Plus, you can use the phone to request road side assistance if you have you AAA number entered! [Free - iTunes link]
James' Pick: Gazette
I read websites. Alot of them. TiPB, Engadget, WMExperts, Gizmodo, ESPN to name a few. I also use Google Reader to aggregate all of the feeds from these sites into a central location. While the webapp for Google Reader is very nice, sometimes I read my feeds offline. Here is where Gazette is handy. It syncs with Google Reader and has the ability to read the articles offline. Great value and best RSS reader I have tried. [$1.99 - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: Twittelator Pro
If you're looking for a twitter client that's jam packed with as many features as possible, you'll want to check out Twittelator Pro! The interface is beautiful and includes badge numbers to show how many unread tweets you Have. You can save multiple drafts, view conversations, add GPS location, create subgroups, copy and paste, and much much more! [ $4.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Snapdat
Snapdat is a creative app that allows an user to send digital business cards to people. The receiver, by email obtains a digital picture of the business card as well as a vCard attachment for importing into their address book. This is a handy application to have when you are caught off guard and don't have a business card on hand. Using a "SnapID" you can share your cards with other Snapdat users and retain a directory of all the cards you have received. The receiver does not need an account with Snapdat in order to receive one. [Free - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Peggle
Never heard of it. Not before the iPhone. How out-of-touch am I? According to commenters who "encouraged" (ouch!) me to check it out -- very. Peggle is a highly-anticipated iPhone game that lives up to the love it's earned. Quick, casual, humorous, and vexingly addictive, if Peggle is any indication, the Nintendo DS has a lot to be concerned about. [TBA - Website link]
