Brill App

I promise I didn’t intend for there to be a theme this week. Anyway here’s Brill, an app that serves up iOS widgets with the intent of helping you (slowly) learn a new language.

Red Ball Super Run

Do you like epic free-runners with a bunch of obstacles to avoid and costumes and weapons to unlock and bosses to defeat? If not then I don’t know what to tell you, but if yes, check Red Ball Super Run. It’s a sequel to the original smash hit Red Ball 4 and it offers all of the stuff mentioned above, and much more.
