Lion Pride, Tesserae

  • Cooliris (Free) displays news and media from various sources in a 3D wall layout. Information is collected from Yahoo, Flickr, Google and other various sites and then presented in a way that is supposed to make scanning through long lists of results simple. The application has recently been updated and is now said to run much faster and includes support for Bing, Picasa, and Twitter.

  • Where To? ($1) uses the iPhone's ability to track a users location to point them to places of interest nearby. The application can provide users with directions to food, shopping locations, fun things to do and more. All of the destinations have been organized into categories and subcategories to make finding a location simpler. Where To? has recently been update with support for some of the features made available with the iPhone 3.0 firmware. Where To? now includes an integrated map and web browser for viewing all related information within the app.

  • SimplyTweet ($5) is a twitter client for the iPhone and iPod touch. It allows users to view their personal timeline, search the public timeline, view direct messages, and more. Users can also set up push notification to send them alerts when a direct message or @reply is received. Additionally, the app includes support for several photo services, different themes, multiple accounts, and photo searches.

  • Lion Pride ($1) is a game where players take control of a pack of lions. Finger gestures can be used to position lions around the map and then initiate an attack on one of four different types of prey. Players have to make sure that they hunt enough food to keep their cubs from going hungry otherwise the game will end.

  • Tesserae ($3) is a puzzle game where the goal is to remove all of the colored tiles from the board. The game is player by flipping tiles over each other to add and remove colors. Flipping tiles subtracts the color from the tile which was jumped, but landing on a tile combines the colors. The game includes three levels of difficulty and six different board shapes.
