GottaGet: Shopping List Helps You Bring Home the Bacon
GottaGet, from RaddOnline, is the latest shopping list maker/keeper to find shelf space in the App Store. When I go grocery shopping, I get as dizzy as a roofer with vertigo.

For iPhone Users, iXpenseIt is a Most Useful Mobile Expense Tracker
iXpenseIt - In my opinion, an expense tracking and budgeting software program that appeals to all users for all purposes simply does not exist. It would be difficult to define all the small details required of a one-size-fits-all due to the individual differences in personal budgeting styles.

Orion's Belt Delivers Space Drama In Spades
Orion's Belt - Most games on the iPhone put a premium on delivering quick-hitting 5- to 10-minute engagements rather than the longevity of a traditional, console-style game. Considering that most iPhone gaming is typically done in short bursts, that approach it is completely understandable.

The Only Thing Missing from ATC 4.0 is the Hudson River
