We’ve all spent more time slingshotting birds than we would like to admit. We’ve played through Angry Birds and even Angry Birds Seasons and are now looking for something new to fill the void.

Well look no further, because today we have five awesome iPhone games that are perfect for Angry Birds fans. Some are almost a direct clone of Angry Birds, others are only slightly reminiscent, all are good for hours of fun.

Also, if you’re too cheap to buy Angry Birds to see what all the fuss is about, we’ve got two completely free alternatives that follow the same gameplay model! Let’s take a look.

Besides ushering in a new era of interface design and raising the bar for smartphone functionality, the iPhone’s tactile interaction has helped spark a revival of one of the oldest and most respected gaming genres in history: the point & click adventure game. One of the happy consequences of this revival has been a game called City of Secrets, from Aidem Media.

Right from the unusual opening, the game’s polished presentation and engaging story draw you deeper (literally) into a hidden city beneath the ground where the plot unfolds. The game’s popularity has prompted the release of iPad and Mac versions, but today we take a look at the iPhone version to see what makes this a city you’ll want to visit.

Quick Look posts are paid submissions offering only a brief overview of an app. Vote in the polls below if you think this app is worth an in-depth AppStorm review!

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting HalfCamera. The developer describes HalfCamera as an app that reproduces amusement & fun from the half frame camera which takes two pictures in a film.

Half frame camera is used by classic camera fans in the world, and now on you can enjoy it with your iPhone. We cooperated with professional photographers from start to finish. That’s why we are sure that you will totally enjoy the experience in using HalfCamera if you like taking pictures. Apply effects, arrange poses and take a photo with an 18×24 format view finder. One film roll consists of 6 shots (12 photos). You can develop an image by choosing two photos which are close to each other. You can write text between photos and frame images.

Don’t you hate it that you have to connect your phone to your computer to transfer a photo? Doesn’t it seem like this sort of action should be performed over Wifi?

Productivity apps comprise one of the hottest niches on the app store. For whatever reason, we simply can’t get enough todo list applications! The problem of course with these apps is that, despite being fairly simple, many of them can run you upwards of $70 by the time you purchase the Mac, iPhone and iPad versions. Even after spending all that money you don’t always get synced tasks between the various versions!

Wunderlist is the app that’s changing everything. It’s free, gorgeous, has professional features like list-sharing, exists on almost every platform you can think of and is always up-to-date no matter where you access it from.

We sat down with Robert Kock, the co-founder of 6Wunderkinder (the company behind Wunderlist) to see how they created such a successful app, why they can offer it for free and what other goodies we can expect to see in the future.

We’ve all re-visited a restaurant and after bit of menu wandering just cannot remember the amazing dish we had when we were here two months ago. It was the best thing you’d ever had and you told yourself you wouldn’t forget, but you did. Or maybe you’re trying to recreate that fantastic dinner you cooked up a few weeks ago, but you can’t remember exactly what you included in that salad. You knew you’d remember because it was so good, but guess what? You forgot.

Memorable Meals gives you a crutch in scenarios like these and some others as well. It allows you to quickly and easily catalog meals and their details to help you remember them. Seems like a killer idea, but how does it work?

One of the greatest things about the iPhone is that developers have turned it into something that can really change people’s lives in ways that no one saw coming. One specific niche that fits this description is the plethora of utilities that you can use to watch what you eat, stay active and lose weight. Who would’ve thought twenty years ago that a cell phone could ever help you lose weight!?

Today we’re going to take a brief look at ten awesome applications geared specifically towards calorie counting. Many of these tools will not only track what you eat, but the way you live with the ultimate goal of being healthier overall. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, get more exercise or even just drink more water, there’s something here for you.

The iOS platform has been quite successful over the past few years, and because of the extensive amount of games available in the App Store, it’s even been called a threat to other portable gaming consoles like the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS. But while Nintendo has Mario and Sony has Grand Theft Auto, there really wasn’t any game for iOS that made traditional console gamers really excited. iOS seemed to be destined for a life of games made for the average person, not hardcore gamers.

Then came Epic Citadel, a demo made by Epic Games that took the same Unreal Technology found on consoles and put it in the hands of iPhone and iPod Touch owners everywhere. We were promised that Epic Citadel was just the start of things, and that soon, we’d have a full-on game that took place in the same environment, and we should be ready.

Well, it’s here. It’s called Infinity Blade and it’s been receiving very positive reviews since its release. But can a game with this much hype live up to its reputation? Let’s take a moment and find out.
