We’ve collected the top four reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in April. Whether you’re interested in Mac, iPhone, iPad, Web, or Android apps, there’s bound to be something you didn’t spot over the course of the month.

Thanks for reading AppStorm, and I hope you enjoy looking over some of our favourite posts from last month!
If you’re a fan of music, then you should be a fan of satellite radio. That’s because it offers over 140 sports, talk and music stations, most of which are commercial free. Currently, the big leader in the market is SiriusXM, the combo pack made up of both Sirius and XM Radio. It used to be that to enjoy their offerings you needed a special receiver connected to a branded radio at your home or in your car, but now all you need is your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Now you might be thinking, “I remember the Sirius app coming out a long time ago. Why should I get excited about it this time around?” Well, the app has been refreshed but more importantly, so has the content. So what makes it so special? Hit the jump and we’ll work it out.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting BullsAndBalls. The developer describes BullsAndBalls as follow: Bulls and Balls is an amazing realization of the famous pen and paper game, “Bulls and Cows”. It can be played by one person against the iPhone. The goal of the game is to guess the combination of balls conceived by your opponent before he guesses your hand.

Once upon a time, back when every kid knew what TMNT stood for, a large portion of my life was devoted to my beloved Nintendo Entertainment System, and subsequently my SNES. These two consoles and several boxes full of games provided a never-ending stream of mind-numbing TV time that many parents today would never dream of allowing their kids to engage in.
These days I have almost zero time for console gaming (I’ve barely finished a single game since Ocarina of Time), but since gaming was such a major part of my childhood, I can’t help but get all excited when retro games from this time period are reborn on the gadget that I spend most of my time on these days.
At long last, the white iPhone 4 is available for purchase. I lost track of how many times this thing has been delayed and how many times Mac rumor sites have claimed that it was just around the corner.
Interestingly enough, it seems that it was the camera holding it back all this time. There were issues with the white glass back leading to washed out photos. It’s fascinating that simply changing the color of the device can lead to so many unforeseen issues! Fret not however, all of these problems have been addressed and Apple has probably learned a great deal about offering color variations for future products that contain cameras.
Today we want to know whether you even care that the white iPhone has finally made it onto the scene. For all its hype, it’s still just an iPhone 4. If you’re not a fan of black though, this could be just the catalyst you needed to take the plunge and fork out the cash to upgrade that aging iPhone 3GS.

Granted, the app store is flooded with text editing applications. But now and then a gem comes along that makes you rethink your current workflow. Essay for iPhone is such a gem.
Plain text notes are easy enough to accomplish. For that, the Notes app from Apple suffices. But what if you want structure and emphasis to your document? Maybe a heading? Some italics or even a list? That’s what’s called rich text editing and that’s where Essay rocks. The universal app takes rich text editing to a new level, paired with accessible file formats and easy synchronization. We’ll take an in-depth look at Essay and how it compares to other popular apps.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Cooties. The developer describes Cooties as a fast paced action game where you fight the mischievous Cooties by touching, holding, and swiping across the screen to dodge Cooties and to collect stars, points, and powerups.
It’s a unique new touch based game that features 20 levels (more on the way) and a survival mode for infinite replay value. Cooties supports OpenFeint for tracking and sharing global high scores!

The term “scalping” has such a negative tone to it. The word conjures up images of guys standing near a stadium holding signs that say “I need tickets” in big letters and cash-only transactions. Although those people will still be around for a while, there are now legitimate means for getting your tickets, and it’s all done online and on your iPhone.
It’s called StubHub, and don’t just assume this is a ticket broker like so many others. After all, it’s the MLB’s official “fan-to-fan ticket marketplace,” so the company has some big time supporters. Until recently, buying or selling tickets from StubHub meant that you had to log on to their website and do your business, but now StubHub makes that a bit easier with the introduction of an iPhone app. Is it worth the download? Find out after the break.

Voice modification apps are always good for a few laughs. They allow the toughest of men to sound like squeaky wimps and the littlest of girls to sound big and scary.
Today we’re going to take a look at VoiceMod. An app that just may be the best voice-modification app around and the most fun than you’ve had in years on your iPhone.
