Get your weekend started on the right track with today’s eclectic mix of apps and games. You can play a game with some friends in Radiant Rush, get healthy with iHydrate, or entertain your children with Gro Memo. We have it all!

iPhone:

iHydrate – Water Intake Tracker ($1.99 → Free, 3.7 MB): Stay happy and healthy by monitoring your water intake with iHydrate. It’s for anyone who wants to lose weight and stay energized throughout the day.

The human body is made up of anywhere from 55 to 60 percent of water, so there’s no denying it’s absolutely vital to you health. If you’re looking to stay healthy, look no further than iHydrate. Unlike other apps in the same category, iHydrate not only allows you to track your water intake but also all other beverages you consume throughout the day. This way you can accurately track your intake while also knowing how much of it was from non-water beverages. You’re able to set reminders to ensure you stay hydrated, and you can get visual breakdowns of how well you’ve been doing with a variety of graphs.

iHydrate – Water Intake Tracker is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Universal:

Sago Mini Ocean Swimmer ($2.99 → Free, 56.6 MB): Your little ones can join Fins the fish and explore his magical underwater world together in this entertainment app. It’s perfect for any child who enjoys no rules, open-ended gameplay.

Sago Mini Ocean Swimmer allows your child to explore freely without any rules or restrictions. They can simply slide their finger around the screen and have Fins follow along. The eye-popping environments are loaded with silly creatures and animations to stumble across, so just hand off that iDevice and let them enjoy the fun. The app includes more than 30 animations, which are highlighted by yellow markers so your child doesn’t miss a thing.

Sago Mini Ocean Swimmer is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 53 ratings.

SoundCatcher- Instant music recognition ($4.99 → Free, 27.7 MB): Identify the music playing around you in a snap with SoundCatcher. It’s for those who get frustrated when listening to the radio and don’t know the name of the song or the artist they’re hearing.

Have you always wanted Shazam or SoundHound but didn’t want to spend $6.99 on a single app? If so, SoundCatcher is a great alternative. It’s just as quick and accurate at recognizing the name of the song and the artist that is playing without the expense. SoundCatcher is also able to provide you with lyrics to the identified song so you can sing along. You’re also able to see the most popular songs that have been playing around you along with the ability to share what you’ve tagged via Facebook.

SoundCatcher- Instant music recognition is available for free today only (11/15). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

Gro Memo ($0.99 → Free, 41.8 MB): An eco-educational game that teaches your child about the environment. This charming app is ideal for parents and teachers that want their children to know about important sustainability issues.

Gro Memo allows children to see just how their actions can affect the environment and the critters living within it. It’s not too preachy, either. Gro Memo instead teaches children about the environment through matching mini-games and puzzles that can be picked up and played without a single written instruction. Throughout the experience, your child will be able to travel through two environments and meet 39 friendly animated critters.

Gro Memo is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

iPad:

Radiant Rush ($0.99 → Free, 21.1 MB): Create a path through the darkness and avoid falling off the edges in this board game. Radiant Rush is for anyone who likes to compete with their friends in strategic board games.

Seemingly inspired by Tron and Etch A Sketch, Radiant Rush will have you immersed in a mesmerizing mess of moves. On each side of the honeycomb-filled hexagon board are colored panels used as spawn points. Your line will sprout from one and follow the paths within the tiles. It’s up to you to twist the tiles to direct your line and avoid colliding with walls, empty spaces, and the edges of the board. Survive longer than your opponents to come out victorious. The game includes five board configurations and three different modes, allowing for a variety of ways to play. You’re also able to play a game locally or host one online.

Radiant Rush is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 24 ratings.
