Squeezed by Jose Chayet (Free, 6.7 MB): This mini-messenger allows those of you who are students to quickly and easily create online study groups to share notes and otherwise communicate about class. Simple and straightforward, the group chat operates like almost any other IM client, offering a way to contact friendly classmates with ease. However, there is one more function: document sending. Designed for sharing things such as lecture notes, this feature allows quick creation of up to 4-page PDFs for efficient transferring. Just snap photos of the pages, do a few taps, and be done, which means no need to type those handwritten notes or copy and paste a huge horde of text into an instant message. All it takes a request to your companions and, hopefully, their kind response. The app requires registration of a free account or link to Facebook.

Domino Arena by Gamieon, Inc. (Free, 41.8 MB): Challenge your mind with tricky calculations in this fast-paced Dominoes-themed puzzler. Normally, succeeding in a Domino Show relies upon figuring the physics of inertia, gravity, and so forth to fashion an impressive configuration, however, your task doesn’t involve setup. In fact, even the action is already in motion, continuously looping for 60-seconds. As the pieces topple, their collision with one another causes a possession transfer, designated by colors. To dominate, you must strategically collapse and rebuild sections by tapping on the circles to start and stop the reaction, allowing your own takeovers to pass through and stopping the opponents streak. Mistime and things can come crashing down, figuratively speaking, real quick. The game features 3-D graphics, varied soundtrack, single player campaign against up to three AI enemies, online leaderboard, and 12 levels. An additional eight levels and tabletop-style human multiplayer are unlocked via in-app purchase.

Radiant Rush by Daniel Redington ($0.99, 21.1 MB): Seemingly inspired by Tron and Etch A Sketch, this simple strategy game immerses you and even friends in a mesmerizing mess of moves. On each side of the honeycomb-filled hexagon are colored panels used as spawn points. From these areas sprouts a bold line, which follow paths like roadways or streams. Step-by-step you twist the tiles to direct your line, avoiding collision with walls and empty spaces, but don’t be concerned about overlapping other lines unless your path is head on. The longer you survive, the more points accumulated. The game features neon 2-D graphics, calm soundtrack, solo and local multi-device support with up to six total players, five board configurations, three difficulty levels, Game Center leaderboards and achievements, as well as three play modes: Standard, Chaos, and Blackout.
