Hitman GO, $4.99, Universal game, offers in-app purchasesThe turn-based puzzle game sees the famous Agent 47 make his first appearance on the App Store. Hitman GO was developed by the fine team at Square Enix Montréal.
“Gone Girl,” $12.99, E-Bookhttp://youtu.be/esGn-xKFZdU One of most celebrated suspense novels of the decade will soon become a motion picture starring Academy Award winner Ben Affleck. Haven't read the 2012 book by Gillian Flynn? Seriously, do it now.
Union, $1.99, Universal appChristine Chan gives this new photo layering app high marks, saying its interface "is simple, clean, and feels natural." We would agree.
"In A World …," $0.99, Movie RentalThis comedy didn’t get a lot of attention when it arrived (and quickly left) theaters last November. We’ve added it here because of its 92 percent Tomatometer score and special rental price. That the film stars and was written and directed by Lake Bell also helps.
Windy, $1.99, Universal appIt's time to sleep, relax, or meditate with this new app that combines natural winds with 3-D parallax scenes.
Unpossible, $1.99, Universal gameThe aim in Unpossible is to control a futuristic vehicle that’s traveling along a track which continually twists and turns. Along the way, countless barriers will block your path, and you’ll need to tap or tilt left or right in order to steer your machine around each obstacle.
Freebies of the WeekBreeze is the latest app from RunKeeper. It offers daily goals, motivating notifications, and celebrates big moments and achievements. Movie pages and theater lists have received a new look in the popular Fandango app. A new rating system is also in place. 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.
