The weekend has come to a close and we’re back in full swing with the first edition of App Recap on the week.

In this edition, we’ve got a couple of awesome Stargate SG-1 games that have been discounted, two other interesting new games, the first Bitcoin wallet app to be released following Apple’s revised App Store policies and more. Take a look at the 10 apps ahead…

Apple recently changed its App Store policies to allow for Bitcoin wallet apps, and Coin Pocket has become the first to hit the storefront. The app lets you send and receive Bitcoin from your iOS device, featuring sweep private keys in HEX, WIF or BIP38 format, a QR code scanner, BTC to USD conversion and more. Coin Pocket is free for iPhone and iPad.
We received an email this morning about the release of Elementals: The Magic Key, and it looks like an app worth mentioning.

VLC is one of the most popular media players for Mac and PC because of its support for virtually all file types. GPlayer is a good alternative for iOS that supports over a dozen audio and video file formats, and over the weekend the app was updated to version 2.0.01 with four kinds of skin support, a Photo Viewer and more. GPlayer for iPhone and iPad is free for a limited time.
The size and portability of the iPad makes it a good point-of-sale system for a lot of small and large businesses, especially when paired with ShopKeep. The dedicated POS app was recently updated, now letting you start a check, give it a name and only take payment when ready. There is a new Checks option in the control panel for this feature. ShopKeep is free for iPad.
