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: Chipotle
The iPhone is revolutionary. Why? I just placed an order for a Chipotle Burrito on my iPhone! You can create an online account, give your order a name, pick a location and voila! The order interface is easy and clean. You can add multiple orders and pay wih your credit card all on your iPhone. Yummy! [Free - iTunes link]
Chris' Pick: Lion Pride
I just downloaded and have been trying Lion Pride. This game is similar in some ways to games like Harbor Master and Flight Control - except you are a lion trying to eat your prey! You control a lion or lions, and try to hunt your prey - between stalking and outright chasing your food items, between different strategies for different prey, the game can be quite involving. The normal game is $.99, but if you want to try it first, there is a "lite" demo for free. [$0.99 - iTunes link
James' Pick: iVillain Theme (Jailbreak)
I tried not to. I really tried not to jailbreak. I was happy with my "stock" iPhone 3GS. Then I saw this theme...and I liked it. I could resist no more. If you have seen the HTC Sense UI, you will recognize it immediately as a "port" of the skin to the iPhone. It was easy to install and configure. There are also a few variations of the them included in the link. [Free - Web link]
Jeremy's Pick: Local Concerts
Great free app for anyone who likes to be kept in the loop of local concerts. Too many times I find out one of my favorite bands played a live show after the fact, not anymore. Local Concerts pushes all new local live concerts directly to your iPhone. Can't beat that for the price of.... [Free - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: Enigmo 2
Enigmo was one of the first apps I purchased when the App Store was launched and I loved it. Now Pangea Software has recently released Enigmo 2 and it's awesome. Instead of manipulating only droplets, you must also direct lazers and plasma with reflectors and gravity balls in 3-dimensional space. If you enjoyed playing the orignal Enigmo, I highly recommend picking up Enigmo 2. [$3.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Otterbox Defender iPhone case
I have been eyeing this case for quite some time & finally I figure I "needed" it. The case is quite worth the price. It literally "seals" your iPhone inside so that no dirt can get inside, I'd definitely say it is spash-proof, but not waterproof. The only really exposed area is the speakers. I unintentionaly did a six foot drop "test" in the case and survived. The only issue I encountered was where - the overlay screen protector sticks to the iPhone screen creating a watermarked effect. It's easily solved with an anti-glare screen protector (at least this is the one I used.) [$44.95 - iMore Store link]
Rene's Pick: iPhone 3.1 + iTunes 9
Had. To. Be. Picked. (Especially after Leanna stole Enigmo 2 from me!) While on the surface iPhone 3.1 appears to contain... nothing on the surface, when you combine it with iTunes 9, all the much-needed bug fixes and feature fill-ins really start to shine -- especially with things like in-iTunes app management, and Genius for Apps. Unless you're jailbroken or desperate for a few early weeks of AT&T MMS and tethering, get this update now. [Free - Web link]
