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: Need for Speed Underground
Wow. By far the best graphics of any racing game on the iPhone. Easy controls, car customizations and different racing scenarios make this one a winner in my book. It may be a little pricey at $9.99 for some, but I consider this to be the FIRST console-quality game for the iPhone; a must buy for any iPhone gamer! [$9.99 - iTunes link]
Chris' Pick: The Weather Channel
I am currently on vacation at the beach, and have been using The Weather Channel app to keep an eye on the weather. Keeping an eye on rain, heat index, and humidity are useful when planning the day. It's great to get more information that just the temperatures that are provided with the default weather app. [Free - iTunes link]
James' Pick: Tiger Woods PGA Tour
I am a golf fanatic. I love video games. I buy Tiger Woods for my Xbox 360 the day each new version is released. I am completely addicted. I purchased Tiger Woods for the iPhone the day it was released and it is worth every penny. Fluid game play with great graphics. The ability to save a game and continue where you left off. You can even customize your player. Quite possible the perfect game for the iPhone! [$9.99 - iTunes link]
Jeremy's Pick: MMA Torch
Best Mixed Martial Arts application in the App Store. Get all the latest mma news as it's updated daily. [Free - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: MYST
Who remembers the best selling game Myst from 1993? Well, now you can spend those hours sifting through clues and solving puzzles all over again! The developers remade Myst for iPhone and the sound and graphics are absolutely stunning. This is a game you don't want to miss! [ $5.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: MYST
Having been playing this game for the past couple of weeks, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing it. Many of you will probably know this game, some of you may not. For those of you who don't , MYST is a complex puzzle game in which you must find a way of a deserted island/world. The footprint of the game is somewhat large, but worth it (about 720MB.) I really liked the sound the game provided, as they didn't go short on sound design. I rarely felt like there was repetition in sound, which can be a drawback for other games. [$5.99 - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Star Defense
I'm not much of a gamer. And I've never played any type of tower defense game before. So when ngmoco asked me to be part of their pre-release press tournament for their latest game, Star Defense, I said "no!" Or I should have, since saying yes likely resulted in exquisitely public humiliation. But here's the thing -- I had a blast playing it. It's gorgeously designed, wonderfully interactively, and joyfully addictive. Even though I got my butt kicked across the Twitterverse in the tournament, now that it's over, I'm going buy the release version just to keep on playing it. [TBA - Website link]
