May 4, 2014

Pilot your starship through colorful yet treacherous environments in Futuridium EP. We also have a reference app that displays the phases of the moon, and a productivity app that allows you to manage your tasks with photos.

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.

iPhone:

Look — Photo is Reminder & Todo ($0.99 → Free, 589.8 KB): Forget the words and manage your tasks with photos with Look.

When you have a task that needs to be completed, just snap a photo of it. You can then create a due date and a short note if absolutely necessary. Every time you access a task, you’ll see the photo you have taken first and then all of your details. Tasks can be marked as complete, edited, and shared. Look also includes the ability to create lists, have the camera launch immediately, and automatically delete old completed tasks. All of Look’s additional features can be toggled on and off through your iDevice’s Settings app, and not through Look itself. Look — Photo is Reminder & Todo is available for free today only (05/04). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 29 ratings.

Universal:

MOON - Current Moon Phase ($0.99 → Free, 24.8 MB): An elegant and beautifully crafted moon phase calendar.

You’re able to see the current phase of the moon on an animated and layered space scape. Swipe right to left across the moon to view its illumination percentage and how many days until a new and full moon. You can also jump ahead in time to see what the moon will be like on a specific date. The app includes push notifications for new and full moons, and the ability to share moon phases via AirDrop, Facebook, or Twitter. MOON - Current Moon Phase is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 46 ratings.

Lists To-do ($0.99 → Free, 8.2 MB): Create lists of any kind with this easy to use productivity app.

When creating a new list, you're able to name it and choose from one of the more than 100 category icons. You can then start adding tasks or items to your list. Tasks and items can be shared, moved, sorted, and copied to your clipboard. You can also attach reminders to them. Lists can be duplicated, reordered, shared, printed, and synced. The app also includes customizable font and list item sizes, icon badging, and seven themes to choose from. Lists To-do is available for free today only (05/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 1127 ratings.

Futuridium EP ($1.99 → Free, 97.2 MB): Hop into your starship and take down massive space dreadnoughts in this retro-inspired shooter.

You’re able to control your ship’s movements by simply sliding your finger around the left side of the screen and fire its blasters via the square on the right. As your ship flies across the surface of the dreadnoughts it will lose energy, so you must blast all of the cyan power cubes along your path to keep it up. Once all cubes have been removed the dreadnought’s core will be revealed, and you must take it down to move on to the next. The game includes two modes, 13 campaign levels, 45 minutes of original music, five gameplay speeds, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Futuridium EP is available for free today only (05/04). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 48 ratings.

Stopwatch+ ($0.99 → Free, 13.9 MB): Record and share your lap times with this professional quality stopwatch app.

It features a realistic timer, complete with clicking sounds. Tap the button in the lower left corner to start the timer and tap again to record a lap. You're able to record as many laps as you'd like and view them in a scrollable list. Your list can also be shared via email. Stopwatch+ is available for free today only (05/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 34 ratings.

Roll: Boulder Smash! ($0.99 → Free, 92.7 MB): Get rolling and smash everything in sight in this arcade game.

You’re put in control of one big boulder, and you must roll down the hill and make it to the end of each level as quickly as possible. To score tons of points, you’ll want to smash everything in sight and string together combos. Got it? Now get rolling! The game includes nine story mode levels, 60 challenge mode levels, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Roll: Boulder Smash! is available for free for a limited time. It has a -star rating with a total of ratings.

Get-O PRO ($0.99 → Free, 15.0 MB): Get the O before your opponent does in this local multiplayer game.

All you need to play Get-O Pro is a friend and two iDevices. You’ll need to pair the two iDevices via Bluetooth to get things started. You then have 60 seconds to fling the O to your opponent’s side of the screen and catch it when it comes back to your side. If you miss it or your opponent grabs it first, you won’t score and they will have possession of the O. Sensor zones will also appear at random, which can change up the gameplay by speeding up or slowing down the O or awarding or stealing points. At the end of each game you’ll see how you stack up against your opponent. Get-O PRO is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 15 ratings.
