Based on the desktop mac application "Mr Tides", Aye Tides is a new app for iPhone that gives you tide measurements for 7000 tide stations worldwide. The app works, but given its steep price tag ($14.99), we can't find any reason to recommend it over the free (but somewhat buggy) "Tides" app.
The intrepid Blimp Pilots development shop just released Koi Pond 2.0 with a variety of new features. The 1.0 version was great; the 2.0 version adds a variety of improvements to the Zen experience that is Koi Pond - movable lily pads, 3D sound, the ability to feed your fish (try shaking the phone), and finger nibbling (hold your finger still in the water and see what happens).
Paper Football Lite by Jirbo is a fun little app that lets you relive your glory days on the paper football gridiron, aka the school lunch table. You take turns pushing a little paper football across a table, attempting to land the football on the edge of the table closest to your opponent.
If you like crosswords (as I do), you might wonder what the experience is like on the iPhone. The first app that I tried in this category, Crossword Light by Stand Alone Inc, was better than I expected, but not quite good enough that I would use the app on a regular basis.
