Hold On! - The Game You Love to Hate

Buy Hold On! on the App Store

This game has ZERO learning curve. Just put your finger down and don’t let go. The app keeps track of how long you can keep your finger pressed.

iMprint - approaching new levels of lame

The opening screen of iMprint pretty much speaks for itself:
“The idea of this application is to stare at the optical illusions and pictures for a couple of seconds.  After this, you may or may not see the illusion.

A Free Level

I don’t know how many times I’ve needed a level and haven’t had one on hand.  It is one of those thing that is usually too big for the toolbox so I don’t often considering buying one.

Ball in a Cup - pretty much is what it is

Simple name, simple game!
I was walking through the airport a while ago and approached the security scan area.  I took off my shoes and put my keys and laptop into the gray bin.  I proceeded to eat the banana I was carrying and I turned to my right to catch the glimpse of a security guard, who was looking at me and said,  “ Sir, you can’t take that though the checkpoint.”
I paused and looked at the banana and looked back at him with a questioned expression.

Constitution - live free

Here are some situations when the Constitution application for your iPhone will come in handy:
1.    Skateboarding, need to prove it is not a crime...
2.    Poly-sci babes getting crazy on the dance floor, need an opener...

PearMe - pocket memory

Remember the game Memory?  Well, PearMe is memory but with pictures instead of drawings.
For some reason I’ve always liked memory type games and pair me is somewhat fun.  You just touch your screen to flip a “question mark card” over.

Who is Hot?

"Who is Hot?” takes awkward silences to a new level.
The app basically takes your contact list and tells you where the source of the phone number originated and then grabs the current weather situation and puts that next to the contact name, phone number and city.

Trailers Lite - think "Portable Front Row"

Trailers Lite is like a miniature version of the popular Mac application Front Row.
Since your iPhone doesn’t come equipped with the same multimedia features of your Mac, sometimes you just have to get creative.

Shazam - an ear for music

Have you ever been sitting in your car listening to the radio (or better yet, in a coffee shop listening to piped-in Muzak) when a great song, that you don't know the name of, starts to play?

Hanoi - welcome to Zen

I’m not a patient person.  I mean, before I go for a car ride, I’ll whine and shake like a nervous poodle with a dog park fetish.
I am always amazed when I meet someone who has perfect “zen”.

Tipper - you may never need to do math again

I have a friend who always tries to get out of paying the tip; I’m usually the one making up for it because I get full and then I get tired.  I’m too lazy to be bothered with figuring out the tip - especially if I am eating with many people.

Hyperspace Lite - Too Easy

Are you the kind of guy who doesn’t enjoy having to work for a living? The type of person who would be better suited to having the food shoveled into his mouth than having to pick up the fork himself?

BMIapp Doesn't Offer a Full Picture of Fitness

Buy BMIapp on the App Store

Health and fitness is pretty important if you don’t want to die. It is nice to have this body mass indicator app on your iPhone so that you might live a little longer.
BMIapp is pretty handy to keep yourself in check.

Tic Tac Knoe - Knoe Thank You

Ok well, this is Tic Tac Toe. That’s it.
I’m not entirely sure who would love to sit and play Tic Tac Toe for a long time or even feel the need to have it on their iPhone taking up space.
I think you will enjoy this game if you like playing Tic Tac Toe.

Crusher for iPhone

Crusher is a solid game. It incorporates decent graphics, great sound and strategy.
Crusher feels like a couple different games mixed into one. It mixes games like Bejeweled with centipede type games in which there is a cannon at the bottom and you shoot upward toward a target.
