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!
Chris' Pick: AppShopper.com
just want to give a mention to the website www.appshopper.com. I love the ability to look at apps, price history, see other apps by the developer, etc. I really like the price history guide, because I can tell how much of a sale an app really may be having! It a great way to peruse apps other than using the App Store app. [web link]
James' Pick: Evernote
One app lacking features is the stock note app. Evernote is a great replacement that contains more features then you could shake an iPhone at. The ability to capture text, picture and voice notes, Evernote is a free app that syncs your notes with Evernotes web service. The web service contains a free and premium service, along with a native Mac or PC program and web clipping browser addons. The perfect compliment that forgetful people like myself can use on a daily basis to remember everything. [Free - iTunes link]
Jeremy's Pick: TwitterFon
TwitterFon has taken over my #1 Twitter iPhone application from Tweetie. It has to be the most under rated Twitter app currently available. Its straight forward, had a clean UI, and it displays number badges for mentions, messages, etc. Best yet, it's free! [Free - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: Air Mouse Pro
This application turns your iPhone into an "air mouse" or track pad. Air Mouse Pro uses the accelerometer to control the movement of the mouse on your computer. It also allows you to use your iPhone as a keyboard to type directly to your Mac or PC. Want common controls to your web browser or media player? Air Mouse Pro knows when you're using such an application and shows the appropriate keys for that program. I personally love using Air Mouse Pro when I want to relax on the couch and browse the internet with my MacBook on the coffee table. [ $5.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Pocket Tanks Deluxe
Pocket Tanks Deluxe has been around for some time now as a PC & Mac game but now it is available on iPhone! Pocket Tanks Deluxe is a 2D tank artillery game. This isn't just a port of an old game, the controls & interface have been completely re-done. The game finally follows it's name - you can really take Pocket Tanks in your pocket! It is similar to iShoot, but it has better graphics, more weapons, & more colors; it has single (you vs. CPU) & dual-play as well as target practice sessions. If you are a fan of iShoot, this game will not let you down! [$4.99 - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: SpinRite
I've got a ton of media for my iPhone -- music, movies, tv shows, podcasts, etc. I store it on a hard drive. Hard drives get errors. This is a fact of life. Enter SpinRite. Whenever I buy a new hard drive, especially a massive one meant for storage, I run SpinRite to map out bad sectors and to make sure, if it fails, it fails right away when I can still exchange it. I also run SpinRite every 4-6 months for maintenance. Of course, it's true value is saving hard drives that have already failed (platter gouges not withstanding), and more often than not, it's saved my data when nothing else has. It might seem pricy, but what price can you put on your priceless data? [$89.00 - web link]
