Whale Song Project is Worth Singing About
Whale Song Project is an awe-inspiring app. Designed by Glad Works, Whale Song Project streams live whale songs from an underwater microphone in Maui, Hawaii. Whale Song Project was not created solely to be a soothing sound machine like Ambiance.
Awesome Ball is... um, Awesome!

Trailers International Lets You Haul Your Film Clips
Hardcore movie fans will like Trailers International from xTeo. Personally, I don’t care for movie trailers. The real movie seldom looks as good as the trailer so I always think some marketing type is trying to fake me out whenever I see a trailer.
Face Melter Pro Has Potential for Innovation

See Time Fly With FlipDown

Peacemaker Works When A Coin Flip Won't Cut It

Magic Eyeball: Questions Answered, But That's About It
Magic Eyeball - One of the very first reviews I ever wrote for AppCraver was of an application called MyEye, which features a giant eyeball and which scared the bejeezus out of me. So now, as I review Magic Eyeball by Joy Entertainment LLC, I'm once again confronted with a big old creepy eyeball.
iPhorest: It's Not Easy Being Green
OK. Here's the thing, readers. iPhorest, much like A Real Tree, is an application for the iPhone in which you can plant a virtual tree, and an actual real tree is planted somewhere in the world. I love trees; they're fantastic. I love the planet; it's where I live.
