Unlike similar apps, xSky really focuses on the view. The interface is clutter-free, sporting only three small icons: search, lock, and settings.

Orbitum ($1.99 → Free, 30.4 MB): Switch orbits and avoid getting sucked into the darkness in this frantic arcade game. It’s a one-button game designed for those who enjoy competing for high scores.

Orbitum requires good reflexes and a trained eye. Your little white circle will go spinning round and round an orbit. To leap to a new orbit, just tap the screen. You must avoid getting pulled in to the darkness in the middle of the screen while avoiding the outside orbit and all of the red triangles. Complicating matters, you’ll also want to collect the green hexagons for additional points and the blue squares to earn power-ups. One wrong move and the game is over.

Orbitum is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 31 ratings.
