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: MyStarbucks
This app rocks for several reasons including the ability to send invites to friends via email with store location info and more for meetings, etc. You can also create your own hot or cold beverage, save and share with your friends. A complete food list is accessible as well and if you are looking for coffee bean details, they can be found here too. [Free - iTunes link]
Chris' Pick: Vconqr
I am trying to find the perfect Risk-style game, and am currently trying out Vconqr. It has a nice interface, easy to play and simple graphics. It doesn't have some of the customization options of the other games, but it is great for just a quick game of Ris....er, Vconqr. Until they actually come out with Risk, this is a good compromise. [$3.99 - iTunes link]
James' Pick: ESPN Radio
I am a sports junkie. I can't get enough of my Chicago teams. Anywhere I go, I usually listen to espnradio1000.com. Unfortunately for me, my work VPN blocks the radio stream. Now I can listen to ESPN no matter where I am. For fans of other cities, the app has streams of the main radio and other cities such as New York and Dallas. [$2.99 - iTunes link]
Jeremy's Pick: South Park Mega Millionaire
South Park Mega Millionaire let's you help Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny as they skate their way through a series of challenges. Any true fan of South will appreciate this game a lot more than the previous attempt of South Park Imagination Land. [$2.99 - iTunes link]
Josh's Pick: Tap Tap Revenge Classic
Basically it's like guitar hero or rockband on the iPhone. I play it every day, like a bad addiction - lol! 100s of songs to play, it never gets old with even classic hits such as Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama from Lynard Skynard. [$0.99 - iTunes link]
Leanna's Pick: Twitbit 2.0
There are still only a handful of Twitter applications that offer push notification and with Twitbit's new update, Twitbit 2.0 is the by far the best one. It has a clean UI, isn't lacking in important features, and mentions and direct messages are quickly pushed with less than a 2 minute delay. I have a bit of a Twitter app addiction, but Twitbit is the only one that lives on my home page. [$2.99 - iTunes link]
Matt's Pick: Photoshop.com Mobile
I was begining to wonder when Adobe might hop on the iPhone app creation boat... This application allows you to edit your photos - from croping them to adding special effects to your photos. The application is quite powerful and incredibly easy to use. Within the app you can also register with Photoshop.com and upload you pictures to their photo hosting service and share/edit/link your photos. (Includes 2GB for free!) On a side note, the online side of the service is really quite awesome and very intuitive. At its price, you can't beat it. Download this one now! [Free - iTunes link]
Rene's Pick: Ramp Champ
Ramp Champ is co-developed by Iconfactory, so you know it's pixel perfect. A skee-ball type casual, fun, time passer it's perfect for the iPhone. Thanks to in-app purchase you can buy more ramps when -- make that if -- you get through the 4 for so that come with the app. I say if because, while the first challenge is easy, the second is hard, and I think I'll need an Ambrose Chase-style description field to get through the third. And did I mention it's gorgeous as well? [$1.99 - iTunes link]
