Game Friday this week takes a retro twist, looking back at some of the fantastic classic games that have been rejuvenated through a port to the iPhone. Some of these games will probably bring back memories of years gone by, when you spent hours in-front of the TV or Computer playing some of the most revolutionary games of all time. We take a look a classic FPS DOOM and the incredibly addictive WORMS, among others.
If you have developed a game that you want including in a future Game Friday then please let us know!
Craigslist is synonymous with local classified ads. A lot of us use their website on the desktop to sell/buy goods and services. But when it comes to accessing the site on the iPhone, it can be a frustrating experience. Solution? Let’s dive into the App Store.
Craigly is one amongst several other competing apps, and is going to be under our microscope today. The app comes in two variants – Craigly for iPhone costs $0.99 and Craigly Premium costs $1.99. Craigly Premium is a universal binary supporting iPad and packs an additional Text to Speech feature.
With the release of the iPhone 4 a month ago to mass fanfare and record-breaking numbers of phones sold, I thought it would be interesting to look back to where the iPhone really came into its own – the App Store. The App Store (coupled with the great hardware) is what has really made the iPhone such a standout device despite ever-increasing competition from other smartphones.
When the App Store launched at around this time in 2008 it was much anticipated and debuted quite successfully with hundreds of great apps. Below is a compilation of some of the best games that were released in those first six months and that are still well worth the download – often at now reduced prices!
Whether you’re a long time iDevice consumer who used the App Store on Day 1 and want to go back down memory lane and re-experience the enjoyment that can be gained from some of the games, or you have a new iPhone or iPod Touch and wish to get some excellent games that have been reduced in price after almost two years in the store, keep reading for the full list of games!

When the App Store first debuted, some of the first apps to make an appearance were those that save you from that one tiny bit of daily math you’re forced to endure: tipping. For whatever reason, developers have since remained enamored with these apps and continue to fill the App Store with them.
Today we’ll set out in search of the best free tip calculator on the market. There are tons to choose from, most of which are horrid, so this will definitely not be an easy task! We’ll start off by looking at a paid app to establish a good feel for what we want, then we’ll look at two free options, each with completely different strengths and weaknesses so you can choose one based on your particular standards.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Instaviz – Diagram Sketching. The developer describes the app as a pocket whiteboard for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Sketch some rough shapes and lines, and Instaviz magically turns them into beautifully laid-out diagrams.
Brainstorm and conceptualize like you’re using pencil and paper, without a pesky interface getting in your way. Then with a couple of taps, share your diagrams with friends and colleagues through email and web.

This week in Game Friday we take a look at another five great new releases to the App Store from the last two weeks. From the highly enjoyable Gravedigger to the excellent iPhone version of Monkey Island, we hope there is something for everyone to get their teeth into.

One of the flagship features of smartphones in general is the ability to read, create and edit documents from your mobile while on the go. After all, they are supposed to be mobile computers and we have come to expect a lot from them in recent years.
With a powerful device like the iPhone, it is finally possible to handle documents in multiple formats with gusto. There are quite a few mobile office apps in the App Store, but today we’re going to be taking a look at Documents To Go Premium. Join us after the jump for our full review!
Task management has been one of the most explored categories in the App Store. There are tons of to-do list applications that all offer the same basic features and allow users to list and check off tasks as they are done. Taking a departure from this conventional way of thinking, PoweryBase has come up with a great way to manage tasks on the go.
NotifyMe is a simple reminder app for your iPhone. It’s touted as being “simple, yet so very powerful”. With a simple user interface, easy to understand graphics and a speedy experience, NotifyMe takes the task out of…well, creating tasks! Selling for $5.99, the app is a bit more pricy than the conventional to-do app, but it packs in the features to make it worthwhile.
