iChalky is Dancing His Way into Our Hearts

Buy iChalky on the App Store

Remember that scene in the Wizard of Oz when the scarecrow first comes off his pole and learns to walk. If you could control that gangly dance on your iPhone, you would have iChalky.

AroundMe Shows Results With Minimum Fuss

Buy AroundMe on the App Store

AroundMe is another app designed to make use of iPhone's GPS to locate nearby services, similar to Where To or I Want.

What's nice about AroundMe is that it does so without the fuss of other programs. Unlike other apps that offer up a bunch of subcategories so users can drill down to the "most accurate" results, AroundMe's minimalist display is like finding Location Nirvana.

Camerabag: Turn Your iPhone into a Vintage Camera

Buy CameraBag on the App Store

There's something special about the artsy quality of a vintage photo. Toy cameras such as Holga, Lomo and Diana are my favorite, but I'm a sucker for just about any cheap camera with a "temperamental" streak. Get from a vintage look for your photos without having to carry around an extra camera. CameraBag from Nevecenter takes iPhone's built in camera back in time with 5 retro photo styles: "Helga," "1974," "Lolo," "Cinema," and "1962."
