Pardon the pun, but as puzzle games go the Sneezies app for the iPhone and iPod Touch is nothing to sneeze at. The simple premise of Sneezies is to advance through levels in one of two modes by setting off a chain reaction of sneezes that subsequently free the animated “sneezies” from their captive bubbles.

Buy Twittelator Pro for Twitter on the App Store

Twittelator Pro Nearly Perfect For Serious Messaging

Twittelator Pro offers an incredible amount of features all in one Twitter app. If you are looking for one application to handle all your twittering needs it would be hard to go wrong with this app. Yet a few glitches keep it from being the "perfect 10" that it is capable of.

AppSniper: Buy this App and Save Some Money

Manta Research's AppSniper is one of those apps that fills a gap that Apple should have plugged at the outset. It's only $0.99 and you'll probably save at least that much the first time you use it.

Buy Recorder Pro on the App Store

Buy Bebot - Robot Synth on the App Store

Bebot Chirps Its Way Into Your Heart
