This week's list celebrates the unofficial start of the summer movie season, and features movie-themed games, apps, and books. There is also a really good film starring Lindsay Lohan on our list. And no, that wasn't a typo.
Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace, $6.99, Universal app“Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” is arguably the worst movie in the Star Wars film series. If you don’t believe me, just ask Sheldon Cooper. Regardless, every journey does have a beginning, as this first-in-a-series of companion apps for the epic movie series proves. May the "Fourth" be with you, folks!
“Heaven is for Real,” $7.99, E-BookThis story of inspiration is the basis of the 2014 film of the same name. Do you believe?
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, $4.99, Universal game, Offers in-app purchasesWhen you return from one of the early screenings of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” this weekend, be sure to download the official game. The Amazon Spider-Man 2 features plenty of non-stop action, six classic villains, new characters, and more.
“Mean Girls,” $3.99, Movie rentalhttp://youtu.be/6YjSIvmNjT8 Watching this confirms that there was a time when Lindsay Lohan actually did something good. Still, has it really been 10 years since this 2004 hit was released?
Freebies of the WeekKeeping with this week's movie theme, we suggest two free apps: AMC Theatres and Moviefone's iPad app. Both feature movie listings and ticket information and much more. 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.
