iOS Apps Gone Free: Kudos To Everyone, Star Rover, Brutal Labyrinth HD, And More

January 25, 2012

Remember that time when your friend took you to a concert, your significant other gave you a massage, or a sibling covered for you? Instead of giving an IOU, give them "kudos." Today's lifestyle app allows you to rate those kind gestures and share them as an acknowledgement of your appreciation. Keep track of multiple friends and even graph their trends. Are you a stargazer? Today's astronomy app choice may not have a fanciful UI but it packs plenty of features in a simple to use package. In the gaming department, one of our choices today will test those reflexes in a ferocious variant of the classic board game Labyrinth.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.
