Apps of the week

Some pretty awesome apps came out this week. I’m excited to spend my weekend testing out all of the cool games that made their way into the App Store after Thursday’s big launch. I’ll bet many of you are still stuck in Hitman Go mode, unwilling to come up for air until every last level is completed. I don’t blame you.

However, if you are looking for something new this weekend, we’ve got a list of apps and games that are sure to occupy your hands and your brains. Who’s going to mow the lawn…

Third Eye Crime

Third Eye Crime

If you’ve finished Hitman Go, but are still in the mood for some stealthy fun, this game will satisfy your love of hiding around corners and avoiding line of sight. Using your handy “third eye,” figure out where enemies will be headed and avoid being seen at all costs. The unique graphics add a noir element to the game that is a cross between Sin City and Dick Tracy. In this game, you don’t just want to avoid getting caught. You’ll need to misdirect your enemies, too. This game is available for $2.99.

9 Elefants

9 Elefants

If you are looking for something with a little mystery and intrigue, this game will fill your cup. Follow the trail of a secret group to try to find Lara’s missing father. Test your skills in more than 230 puzzles with eight different gameplays. Interact with a variety interesting and unusual characters to unlock the secrets of the nine elephants. As you travel through Paris’ most mysterious locations, you’ll unravel the story of the missing inventor and his magical cat. This game is available for $2.99.

Tiny Dice Dungeon

Tiny Dice Dungeon

Head out on a role-playing adventure that Frank Sinatra might approve of in this unique twist on the dungeon crawl genre. Fight against a variety of monsters with nothing but a bag of dice. Instead of using your deft sword fighting skills, your fate will be left to the ivory numbers. Destroy enemies, collect loot, and capture monsters to make them your fighting companions. You can use the special shards you find during your adventure to create magic dice that perform special rolls. The numbers are still chance, but what they can do for you is magical. This game is available for free.

MyTP One Mountain – Ski, Freeski and Snowboard

MyTP One Mountain

In my neck of the woods, there pretty much wasn’t any chance for snow this year, which also meant no day trips up to the lifts for a few hours of snowboarding fun. If you missed out on your chance to hit the slopes this year, you can make up for it with a bit of virtual powder. Race down the mountain on skis or a board and perform tricks from half pipes, kickers, boxes, rails, and more. Compete in three different modes, style, best 3 tricks, and training. Choose your own character and face the competition with more than 1,000 trick variations. You can even walk around if you are tired of your board. This game is available for $0.99.

birdStepper

birdStepper

Don’t just make wicked sampling loops on the iPad. Transform your beats into something completely unheard of. This app is like a step sequencer effects machine. Dump your sound in from any compatible third-party app using Audiobus and then adjust the pitch to turn it into something unnatural. Adjust the meter to fit the tempo, time signature, and beat division you need. You can automate the pitch shift, add fuzz, delay, and wobble, and layer it with chorus, ambience, and spectre. Plus, each effect can be fine-tuned to get precise detail on when you want the sound to alter. This app is available on the iPad for $4.99.

Up Next

What Next

Maybe you are just too busy to play games this weekend. If you have a lot on your Honeydo list, it might be time to sit down and prioritize your tasks. This app was specially designed to help you figure out what to do first, and then figure out what to do next. Integrate with existing calendars and reminders to make it easier to keep track of your daily schedule. The app even lets you know how long it will take to get to that meeting. It may feel overwhelming, but with a bit of organization, you won’t even have to think about what to do next. You’ll just do it. This app is available for $2.99.

Time.is

Time.is

I’m not exactly sure why one needs to have the exact time for dozens of different time zones, but I know it is possible to have it. Using atomic clock time, you can synchronize your iPad to five milliseconds of accuracy for precision scheduling. Using constantly updating data, the app will automatically adjust to the new time zone the moment you cross into or out of one. Even if you aren’t obsessively compulsive about milliseconds of time, you can still enjoy this world clock for its basic features, including the attractive minimalist design and included alarm clock. This app is available for free.

        Some things make the cut and other things don’t. This is completely normal and happens with most blogs. If you want to know about everything you should subscribe to RSS feeds of multiple blogs using a service such as Feedly. In terms of iOS gaming I personally find TouchArcade a great site…

    • That’s because we have a proper review of Leo’s Fortune coming up
