Kaleidoscope is a Gorgeous Adaptation of the Original Toy

If you like to look at pretty things you could go out and get yourself a collector's edition kaleidoscope for around a thousand bucks. Or you could buy Kaleidoscope for $1.99 and use the rest of the money to frame your fancy new artwork.

Rubberduck Fails to Float

I'm pretty easily amused. I find joy in the little things. So, I fully expected to like Rubberduck. I mean, it wasn't gonna make the top 10 most useful apps list, but surely it's good for a few laughs.

Buy Rain Stick on the App Store

Rainstick: Soothing Sounds All Around

Buy iBeer Pro - Drink beer on your iPhone on the App Store

Earth3D has some pretty cool 3D effects

Earth3D is a free app that simulates the Earth rotating around the Sun, with the Moon rotating around the Earth. It's free, its interactive and it's fun. But, as someone pointed out, it's not 100% accurate.
