Buy Galactica on the App Store

Galactica Takes You to Another Galaxy

Galactica is a groovy, transporting app for your iPhone. Did you ever dim the lights, turn on trance music and stare at your lava lamp as it morphed and swam?  Galactica from Thumbspark Limited provides a similar sensory experience, except you are in charge of the dynamic ebbs and flows of the app.

Buy Peacemaker on the App Store

Peacemaker Works When A Coin Flip Won't Cut It

Peacemaker - "What movie do you want to see?" "I don't know. You pick." "I don't know either. You pick." "I honestly don't care; it's up to you." Ever had a conversation like that? Of course you have.

Buy Magic Eyeball on the App Store

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.

¡Cinco! The Countdown to Cinco de Mayo Has Begun

Cinco de Mayo is about a month away so it's time to start the countdown to the well-known Mexican holiday with ¡Cinco!, from developer Chunky Chicken Apps. Launch ¡Cinco! and you'll immediately see the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds to Cinco de Mayo (May 5).

Buy MouthOff™ on the App Store

MouthOff: Try One On and Mask Your Face With Animated Lips

MouthOff - There are some iPhone apps that are beautifully designed. There are some that are incredibly helpful. There are some that are awesomely fun games. And then there are some applications that seem mostly to have been made to allow me to annoy my boyfriend.

Buy Love Crush on the App Store

Love Crush: She Loves it, She Loves it Not

Love Crush - When is the last time that you plucked the petals off a flower one by one, reciting aloud, “she/he loves me, she/he loves me not?” Back in the day, I used a real flower, complete with real petals.

Buy WeirdFacts on the App Store

WeirdFacts: You Had Me At "Frogs don't drink water"

Like that kid from Jerry Maguire, the precocious application WeirdFacts, by Jens Beuckenhauer, volunteers odd facts for the iPhone user's amusement. A Random Fact button at the bottom generates hundreds of weird facts on a notepad on the screen.

Babelgum Go's Streaming Video Clips Entertain, but Up to a Point

Babelgum Go, by Babelgum, is the latest free video player to hit the spotlight. Babelgum Go gives you access to thousands (I'm going by what the company says in its app description) of videos from around the world.

Buy iWingman - Pickup lines generator on the App Store

iWingman - Pickup Lines Generator is a Funny Companion for Finding a Date

If the iPhone has become our eternal digital companion, helping us with everything from our hobbies, finances and humor, why can’t it be our wingman? Maybe it can. iWingman is an interactive pick-up line app. iWingman is your very own buddy, there to aid you in trying to get the woman of your dreams. Think Swingers & Wedding Crashers but less cool. What the app does have is charm.

TigerBeat3D is a Sidekick to This Month's Issue

TigerBeat3D is a sidekick app that goes along with this month’s issue of Tiger Beat Magazine, which, for all you post-adolescent readers, is like a cross between People Magazine and Star Magazine for kids.

Buy PopOff on the App Store

PopOff Supplies More Sounds for Popping Off

While I truly do not understand the fascination with sound effect apps, PopOff is yet another sound app with a name that implying its purpose — it's a collection of random sounds you can “pop off.” Though I prefer to use my device for productivity, gaming, and music entertainment, I alone do not make up the entire populous of iPhone/iPod touch users and there are plenty of users who enjoy the ability to have random sound effects at their finger tips.

Monsters vs. Aliens App: Free vs. Paid Version

If you have kids, then you are probably more than aware of the latest Dreamworks Animation movie, Monsters vs. Aliens, about to hit theaters. The movie is an animated comedy, featuring the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen, about a girl who turns into a giant and teams up with a secret compound of good monsters to battle evil aliens and save the day.

Buy Photos of Fire on the App Store

Photos of Fire App Will Not Make You Hot

Photos of Fire by Rogue Team is one of those apps about which there is not much to say. You take a photo. You make it look like the photo is burning. Repeat. Photos of Fire simulates flames on your iPhone's screen.

American Idol Season 8 Exclusive Videos: THIS...is American Idol for iPhone

As someone who's watched American Idol more-or-less obsessively since its first season, I must admit I feel extremely well-qualified to discuss the American Idol Season 8 Exclusive Video app offered by The Zumobi Network.
