AppAdvice has teamed up with Banzai Labs in order to offer you a chance to win one of fourteen (14) promo codes for Bugs! for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch ($.99). Get prepared to be both amazed and likely creeped out. Bugs! is a collection of close-up images of more than 90 spiders and more than 70 anthropods. Even if you can't appreciate the bugs, you can still marvel at the wonders of photography that some would deem nearly impossible to capture. Let the very talented macro-photographer Thomas Shahan stun you with over 160 magnificent photos of some of nature's most bizarre, talented, mysterious, and detested creatures. Best of all, you don't have to worry about these eerie looking bugs crawling over you at night. As you browse through the photos, you can choose to listen to ambient forest sounds in the background. Within the audio settings, there is an option to enable or disable a three to four second per frame slideshow feature. Take your pick of viewing galleries of either the eight-legged wonders or the exoskeleton-equipped crawlers of the world. These outstanding photos capture anything from extreme close-ups of those multiple-eyeball web-spinners to the crazy colors and body shapes of the most interesting species I've ever seen. Each image is of perfect quality for any iDevice display. The app offers the ability to easily scroll through each gallery with left or right flicks, or even the next arrow. On the right side of the navigation bar, you'll find a show and hide control for the image preview slides, a share button to save the photo to your Camera Roll or post it to your Facebook wall, and a show and hide for the music controls, .
