Expenses 2.0

expenses

Expenses is a great app for tracking those pesky budgets, that looks great with the new iOS 7 style.

Expenses offers a full range of features to help you track spending. Add each expense and take advantage of tracking over time with graphs and more. Get notifications when you leave your favorite places to drop so cash so you don’t forget to enter the expenses.

Sync over iCloud and DropBox for all your devices. Foursquare integration helps tagging each expense with a place. Even export your data to CSV or PDF.

teggle

teggle
Teggle is an additive game thats very simple to learn but difficult to master. You’ll put your finger agility and reflexes to the test.

Teggle is a game born of multitouch. Swipe and tap your way to victory following onscreen cues as fast as you can. But be careful, one misplaced finger can cost you the highscore you crave.

Grab an iPad and play multiplayer for some real frenzied action.

Bee Puzzled

Every Bee Hive has a Queen. Help your queen lead the colony of workers on the mission to collect all the pollen.

In a mix of Tetris and Snake, Bee Puzzled takes ou through 72 levels each with unique challenges from tornadoes to frogs. Plan out each move carefully to extract as much pollen as possible from each level. Just be sure you don’t cross the streams. ;]

Cowpokes

cowpoke

Cowpokes is a unique and fun game that seems to combine some of my favorite elements into a single game.

Cowpokes is an endless runner with Fruit Ninja controls and Flight Control demands. You are herding cattle down range and its a perilous journey. Steer your cattle through rocks, poachers, and more. Simple drag your finger to create lassos and point your cattle in the right directions.

I had a ton of fun pretending to be a herdsman for a day.

A Zombie Musical

zombies

Watch out, Broadway – it’s a zombie apocalypse! Stop Murdock Smythe from creating enough zombies to destroy the world and the drama that would unfold.

Murdock Smythe has created a potion that when added to the dead and combined with an eery melody the dead will walk. Reverse his melody to stop his evil plan!

Over 50 levels stand between you and the final battle between you and and the evil Murdock Smythe.

Sandok

Ever get bored playing games with only one main character? Sandok is for you!

Sandok puts you in control of not one, but two boxes that need to get across challenging physics based levels. Each can move and jump, but boxes aren’t created equal.

Sandok’s got fantastic 2D physics, great grundge style 2D artwork, and plenty of addicting levels to keep the thrill of the hunt.

Left Turn Escape

Three lefts do make a right.

Drive a robot through laser beams, evil droids, robot-crushing bricks, and more. But remember, only left turns. Touch anywhere on the screen to turn left. Find the key to open the door and get out of there!

Left Turn Escape features over 60 challenging levels and 22 GameCenter achievements.

1 Solution

Cortex

Cortex

Dr. Max has created an ultra intellgent machine hellbent on world domination.

The only hope is for you to decode the computer’s tests before its too late. There are safe guards in the system like powerups to reveal, stop, and disable boxes in each test.

Sumzy – A gesture Calculator

Sumzy is a minimalist, gesture based calculator for those of us calmoring for something better than the default iOS calculator.

Sumzy offers has gestures to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. As well as a quick gesture to calculate the final answer. And with a quick two finger swipe down, it even saves your totals for reuse within the next calculation.

To top off this elegant experience, there are several themes available to make sure your calculator matches your phone.
