This week's list features a Zite alternative, a return to "Fargo," and a cabin best described as creepy.
Doggins, $3.99, iPad gameA 2014 SXSW Gamer's Voice Award nominee, Doggins pits a dreaming terrier against the villainous squirrel Fitzwilliam.
"Fargo," $9.99, Movie purchaseOn April 15, FX premieres the television series “Fargo,” which is based on this 1996 sleeper hit starring Oscar winner Frances McDormand. Deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress, “Fargo” is a great film to add to your digital collection.

Knock-Knock Game, $4.99, Universal gameCreated by Ice-Pick Lodge (I just love that name), Knock-Knock Game features three generations of lodgers stuck in a cabin. The goal is to keep these guys sane for the night.
Freebies of the WeekYou probably already know the iTunes Festival at SXSW begins on Monday, March 10, and have seen the official iTunes Festival app is now available for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. What you may not know is the official SXSW Go app is also available and equally nice -- and a must have if you're visiting Austin, Texas for the event. Are you upset Zite will soon become history, and are now looking for an alternative? Take a look at Reverb, a visually pleasing (and free) iPad news app that first launched in 2013. That’s it for this week. Another issue of “How To Spend A $25 iTunes Gift Card” will be published next Friday. Until then, stay safe.
