Launch tokens around the screen to reach the target area, manage your files while on the go, and make some hoops 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:

iArrow ($2.99 → Free, 29.5 MB): Find your way back to wherever you came from with iArrow. It’s ideal for outdoor adventurers.

You must first set your target coordinates by selecting a point on the map or entering a specific address. You’re also able to set targets by simply holding your finger on the arrow. Then walk away and the app will indicate the direction and distance from which you came. The app includes two methods of location discovery, more than 2 million locations to choose from, the ability to share your coordinates, and loads of additional information like speed, altitude, bearing, and heading.

iArrow is available for free today only (05/17). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 30 ratings.

Paul Ball ($0.99 → Free, 8.3 MB): Ready for a little Paul Ball? It’s the perfect game for sports fans everywhere.

Your job is to launch balls through the air in hopes of making all of the baskets before time expires. Just swipe down on the launcher to fire balls through the air. The quicker your swipe, the farther the ball will fly. Try to limit your amount of shots to earn a gold medal. The game includes a total of 30 levels.

It allows you to create your own text, audio, or media files, or you can import files via iTunes File Sharing, Wi-Fi, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box. Files can be arranged into folders, zipped, and shared.

Big White Hero: The Epic Jump Game ($0.99 → Free, 43.0 MB): A simple but addictive endless jumping game. It’s ideal for fans of classics like Doodle Jump and Mega Jump.

It was only a few years ago that endless jumpers were all the rage. Big White Hero allows you to relive that special period of time. Your Big White Hero jumps and jumps all on his own. All you have to do is tilt your iDevice to get him to safely land on platforms. Aim for the special treats to earn even more points, and dodge bombs to avoid being penalized. The game also includes power-ups, six different backgrounds, and online leaderboards.

Big White Hero: The Epic Jump Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

Gentlemen…Ricochet Mini! ($0.99 → Free, 49.6 MB): A “demake” of the hit arcade game, Gentlemen…Ricochet! It’s ideal for fans of retro games and one-button gameplay.

Just like the original game, Gentlemen…Ricochet Mini! requires you to get a token into the target area by launching it all over the screen. This time around, however, things are simplified in every way. To launch a token, simply tap on the screen when the time is right. You can grab the token again when it reaches another launching zone with a tap. Keep firing it around the screen to grab all of the stars and reach the target area. The game includes 72 levels, retro graphics, local multiplayer, boss battles, and three unlockable mini-games.

Gentlemen…Ricochet Mini! is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.
