The first full week of Festivus is in the books! We gave away some really great prizes over the last seven days, but we have another two weeks of exciting gadgets, apps, and games to get through yet, so don't despair if you haven't won anything. There's lots of time left! Today we're giving away iPhone and iPad versions of IK Multimedia's AmpliTube, and the universal version of Phosphor Game Studio's Dark Meadow. An app for musicians who want to amp it up Some of you may not know this, but AppAdvice first came together as a garageband looking to make it big. Once we realized we weren't musicians, we decided to just write about iOS apps. Alright, so that's not really a true story, but if we were to form a band the first app we would download would be IK's Amplitube. With an iRig in hand and a copy of Amplitube installed on your iDevice, you'll be able to play, practice, and record songs anytime, anywhere. It's loaded with so many different stompbox effects, amps, and customization options that you may just end up putting your original recording equipment on eBay. AmpliTube for iPhone is available for $19.99, and AmpliTube for iPad is available for $19.99 as well. A game that's as dark as it is beautiful Want to push your new iPhone or iPad to the limit? Then you absolutely must use a Festivus raffle ticket on this bad boy. Dark Meadow is a fantasy role-playing game designed around Epic's powerful Unreal Engine, which basically means your jaw is going to drop the moment you step foot into the decaying ruins of Montclair Hospital. As you progress through the game trying to figure out the mystery behind your imprisonment, you'll encounter massive beasts that can be taken down with a variety of gesture-controlled weapons, but your ultimate goal is to destroy the beautiful witch in charge of this nightmare. Dark Meadow for iPhone and iPad is available for $5.99. Want a shot at winning these fantastic apps and games? Here’s how: download the free AppAdvice app, launch it, and then tap on the not-so-subtle “Giveaway” icon smack dab in the middle of the screen. Follow the directions within the app and you should be golden. You can also see if you have won any prizes from our previous giveaways by scrolling to the very bottom of today’s giveaway.
