The temperatures outside may be plummeting, but our Festivus giveaway is heating up! Today we have for you a chance to win Splashtop's FileHound for iPhone, Readdle's PDF Expert for iPad, Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, and Sega's Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition for iPad. An app that can sniff out files remotely Want to be home for the holidays instead of slaving away at work to meet a deadline? With FileHound, you might actually have a shot at just that (as long as your employers aren't complete Scrooges) since you can view, access, and edit all of the files on your Windows PC remotely from your iPhone. FileHound is able to bring up a list of every single file on your computer and any connected external hard drives within two quick taps. But if you want a full remote experience, you'll be happy to know that FileHound also has Splashtop's Remote Desktop functionality built right in. FileHound for iPhone is available for $0.99. An app that puts PDFs in their place Whether you deal with PDFs on an everyday basis, or you just find yourself needing to annotate a PDF once in a great while, PDF Expert for iPad should be your go-to app. It's definitely ours. It clearly stands head and shoulders above similar apps in the App Store thanks to its ease of use and rich feature set, including importing and exporting via your favorite cloud-based services, iTunes File Sharing support, a wide range of annotation and editing tools, and full text search. Go ahead, use one Festivus raffle ticket on this fine productivity app. No one will judge you for wanting to get more work done while on the go, we swear! PDF Expert for iPad is available for $9.99. A game that requires cat-like reflexes The world's fruit supply surely took a hit after Halfbrick released their first Fruit Ninja game, but now with Puss in Boots at the helm, Chiquita and the rest of the fruit suppliers are probably shaking in their, well, boots. Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots follows the same fruit slicing formula as the original game it is based off of, but cranks the gameplay up a notch with an all-new Bandito mode. This challenging new mode requires you to complete certain tasks without running out of time or, even worse, slicing a bomb. But that's not all that's new in Fruit Ninja land. For the first time ever, you'll be able to cut up one of the most requested fruits of all time -- the tomato! Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots for iPhone is available for $0.99. A game that will get you rolling No matter if they are swinging from trees in the wild or trapped within giant balls, monkeys have an unending desire for one thing and one thing only -- bananas! Guide Sakura and the rest of his friends through mazes as quickly as possible while also grabbing as many bananas as those little paws can hold in the iPad exclusive version of Sega's popular arcade game, Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition. The game allows you to play with up to three other people on the same device, and includes all kinds of mini-games to go along with the 125 main stages. Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition for iPad is available for $4.99. Want to have 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. If you’d like to learn more about our awesome Festivus giveaway, check out our announcement article.
