App Bargain Bin
May 18, 2015

Bring light and order to a blocky world, get your tokens to the finish line before everyone else, and relax to the sounds of the ocean with today’s collection of apps and games.

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:

Poetics – create, write and share visual poetry ($1.99 → Free, 45.4 MB): Get poetic with your photography with Poetics. It’s perfect for those who want to create some visual poetry.

You’re able to import any photo from your library or take a new one from within the app. You can scale, apply filters, and adjust the parameters of your photo. Then write anything you want on it, whether that’s a poem or a caption. You’re able to add as few or as many words as you want and manipulate them with common gesture controls. Your unique creations can be shared via email, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Twitter.

Poetics – create, write and share visual poetry is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 76 ratings.

Universal:

Sunny ~ Sleep Relax Meditate on the Beach with Calm Wave and Ocean Sounds ($2.99 → Free, 75.1 MB): Relax to the sounds of the ocean with Sunny. It’s for anyone who enjoyed Taptanium’s other relaxation apps like Windy and Thunderspace.

Before you do anything else, grab a pair of your favorite headphones. Without them you simply won’t get to experience all of the fantastic stereoscopic 3-D sounds Sunny has to offer. The sounds were encoded in the highest quality 256 kbps AAC, allowing for a completely engrossing audio adventure. You’re able to customize each beach scene by mixing in as much or as little rain, rain beating against a tent, music, and bird sounds as you wish. Sunny’s first beach is unlocked from the get go. The other five can be unlocked with sun rays, which are earned simply by interacting with the app and listening to the sounds on a daily basis. If you can’t wait, you can unlock all of the sounds immediately via in-app purchase.

Sunny ~ Sleep Relax Meditate on the Beach with Calm Wave and Ocean Sounds is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 115 ratings.

Arrows XD ($0.99 → Free, 20.4 MB): Get the arrows going in the right direction in this simple and addictive puzzle game. This game is ideal for anyone looking to test their brain power without the pressure of a timer.

The arrows all move on their own in whichever direction they’re pointing. It’s up to you to slide them around in order to get them into their corresponding orbs. Things start off a little slowly at first to allow you to get the hang of how to handle the arrows and predict where they will go. As you progress all kinds of new elements are added, effectively mixing up the gameplay and really testing your puzzle solving abilities. The game is loaded with more than 100 futuristic levels and Game Center leaderboards so you can compete with friends.

Arrows XD is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 276 ratings.

Blockwick ($2.99 → Free, 19.0 MB): Bring light and order to the world in Blockwick. It’s ideal for fans of sliding puzzle games.

If it wasn’t already obvious by the name, Blockwick is full of blocks. Blocks of different shapes and colors are strewn about. It’s up to you to strategically slide them around in order to get those with matching colors to touch each other, which will light up their symbols. While on your journey make sure to keep an eye out for the pearls hidden behind the blocks. There’s one in each of the 240 increasingly difficult levels.

Blockwick is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 2114 ratings.

iPad:

Fluke HD ($0.99 → Free, 81.6 MB): A colorful board game for the whole family to enjoy. It’s ideal for fans of board games like Snakes and Ladders, Sorry!, and Ludo.

The concept of the game is to get all four of your tokens from the starting point to the finish line before any of your opponents do. You’re able to play with up to six players locally on the same device, or you can take your skills online and compete against random players via Game Center. Fluke HD includes six delightfully colorful boards to choose from, three difficulty settings, and special tiles to interact with.

Fluke HD is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 243 ratings.
