Worthwhile Apps Apps

Buy ActiveNotes on the App Store

ActiveNotes Has Some Unique Features but It's Nothing Special

There are almost as many note-taking apps in the App Store as there are fart apps. So, when a new note taker comes along, it has to be really special to stand out, and I don't mean in a stinky way.

Buy 3-D FIGHTER PILOT : Guns of War on the App Store

3-D Fighter Pilot: Guns of War Brings Dogfighter Game Back from the Past

Fighter pilot games are almost always fun and I've wasted a zillion hours playing a bunch of them over the years. DumbGames.net's 3-D Fighter Pilot: Guns of War doesn't add anything to the genre, but it plays okay.

Buy Darkroom Pro on the App Store

Ready SteadyCam, Shoot! Get Better Low-light Photos With Darkroom Pro

StepCase's SteadyCam Premium (now called Darkroom Pro) is similar to other apps we've reviewed such as Sudobility's Night Camera. What these apps do is to rely on the iPhone's built-in accelerometer to gauge when you're holding the iPhone steady so you can take sharper pictures in low light.

Buy Perfect Rhyme on the App Store

Are you a dietician but aspire to be a musican? When you rap do people tell you it's crap? Then it's time for Perfect Rhyme. AliMusic's Perfect Rhyme is a dictionary for musicans, poets and people like Muhammed Ali, who need to rhyme from time to time without making it a crime.

Buy Crazy Snowboard on the App Store

Crazy Snowboard Now Updated for iPhone and iPad

Crazy Snowboard 2.0 is an app with multiple personalities. On the one hand it is one of the better designed games around for the iPhone, iPod touch and now the iPad, too. Its weakness is the sometimes quirky gameplay that keeps it from being a truly great offering.

Biiplane Offers Good Flight; Little Else

Biiplane is a flying app that will test your ability to maneuver your iPhone or iPod Touch through a simplistic obstacle course. It works well as a flight simulator through its use of the accelerometer.

Fire Art Garden Not That Explosive

Fire Art Garden is a puzzle offering that puts you in a race against time to launch fireworks. To do so, you must rearrange a rope maze to let a spark makes its way to the launchers. While Fire Art Garden is novel in concept, some unresponsiveness from the touch screen keeps it from being a truly great app.

Buy Wunder Radio on the App Store

Wunder Radio Connects to Radio Waves from Around the World

Joseph Campbell once said you can tell a lot about a city by its tallest building. I'd like to think you can deduce a few things about a place by its local radio stations as well — which is why I'm utterly fascinated with Wunder Radio, the latest release from the folks at Weather Underground.

Buy Stolen Wallet on the App Store

Stolen Wallet App is a Back Up for Your Real Wallet
