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.

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Snap!. The developer describes Snap! as a camera app designed to turn the iPhone camera into a productivity tool: Snap a photo, write as many notes as you want, move them with your finger and the picture is saved with the notes overlaid on it. Sharing on Facebook, Twitter or email is just a touch away. Other apps can also do this but only Snap has a beautiful, fast and intuitive interface that makes all this easy and fun.

Countless entrepreneurs have set out to make their fortunes with the same idea: social media aggregation. The basic idea behind this movement is that you, the user, are overwhelmed by all of your social information. Every day you have to go through the hassle of checking your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Foursquare, Gowalla and other accounts and would like nothing better than to save yourself the trouble of app-hopping and get it all in one convenient place.

The argument seems sound doesn’t it? So why don’t we use these tools? Sure, we try them all and briefly maintain patronage, but in the end most of us end up using separate methods to access our various social networks. I believe there are several reasons for this phenomenon, the first of which is a modified version of an effect that has been present in technology for decades.

With the iPhone, Apple didn’t just take over the smart phone industry, they took over the photography industry as well! Geekaphone and other sources have been reporting that the iPhone has literally become the world’s most popular camera, not too bad for a device in a genre typically known for producing horrible images.

This of course makes a lot of sense. As one of the most popular phones on the planet, lots of people are carrying around an iPhone everywhere they go. Combine this convenience factor with the fact that Apple has done a phenomenal job with the camera setup on the iPhone 4 in addition to the wealth of awesome photography apps in the App Store and what you get is a recipe for photographic greatness.

Today we want to know how much you value your iPhone as a camera. On a typical day, do you bust out your Canon 5D mk II or simply reach into your pocket for your phone? Vote in the poll and leave a comment letting us know what other cameras you have and when you use your iPhone over them.

In the wake of our grand unveiling of iPad.AppStorm, we’re also shuffling some other things around here to keep the content dynamic. Among these adjustments is the fact that this Game Friday column will now move to a bi-weekly schedule to make room for some more in-depth reviews. So keep an eye out for those, but don’t be dismayed: this new schedule also means we can bring you only the cream of the crop every other Friday, so it’s a win-win scenario.

In the meantime, you’re encouraged to keep sending us email tips and feedback; we love getting them and hope you continue to enjoy Game Fridays! Now with all that out of the way, let’s dive into this week’s selection…
