Camera Plus 2, NMobile

  • PocketBracket ($1) is a tool that can help users create and track March Madness brackets and pools. The application allows users to manage several brackets simultaneously and add these brackets into different pools. Scores are automatically updated and users can select a "smart-complete" option that updates their picks without the need to redo games.

  • Voila! ($1) allows users to update their location on Yahoo! Fire Eagle and their Twitter profile. The application uses the iPhone's built in GPS capabilities to determine the current location and then displays the address on a map which can be opened in Google Maps. A users current location can also be shared via a Twitter message or standard email as well. When a users location is updated on Fire Eagle it is also updated on all of the sites associated with the account such as Facebook, Plazes or a blog.

  • Jiyuka ($4) lets users create pictures with randomly generated flowers. Every flower image is rendered randomly using a combination of colors and petal geometries, while users can also 'cross' favorite designs to build new creations. Options for controlling the background color and gradient are also available. Flowers can be positioned and resized on the screen using touch gestures and music is generated to match the arrangement of the flowers.

  • Camera Plus 2 ($2) uses the accelerometer built into the iPhone to trigger the shutter on the camera. The application can also place a grid across the screen which helps photographers to follow guidelines such as the "rule of thirds". Camera Plus 2 also provides continuous visual cues that can help one keep their hands steady resulting in photos with less blur.

  • NMobile ($3) can make drivers aware of the location of speed traps, red light cameras and speed detection devices. As users approach these hazards the application provides audible feedback to warn of the potential trap. NMobile's list of traps comes from user submissions which can be rated by other users to ensure accuracy. Aside from speed traps users can also submit alerts for accidents and school zones.
