App Bargain Bin
May 6, 2015

Shape an entire world, personalize your events, and turn your goals into achievements 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:

Calendate – Most Stylish Calendar ($1.99 → Free, 4.5 MB): This calendar app allows you to personalize your events. It’s ideal for those who prefer more visual feedback.

It’s able to access your iDevice’s built-in calendar to import all of the events you’ve already created. You can quickly add new events by tapping the open field and assigning one of the 24 event icons. All of your events for today can be viewed in list form, and you can look into the future with the calendar view. The app also includes 10 themes to choose from, built-in weather data, public holidays, and the ability to share events via email or Messages.

Calendate – Most Stylish Calendar is available for free today only (05/06). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 21 ratings.

iAchievement – Gamify Your Life ($1.99 → Free, 4.4 MB): Turn your goals into achievements with this productivity app. It’s the type of app for anyone in need of a little inspiration to achieve their goals.

Why should achieving your goals be boring and lame? iAchievement turns it into a game! When creating a new goal you’re able to title it, attach notes, categorize it, and define your units. Goals can really be anything, from the amount of times you perform an action to how many pages you flip. It’s all up to you. Every time you complete one of your goals, just tally it on the main screen and iAchievement will track your progress.

iAchievement – Gamify Your Life is available for free today only (05/06). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 45 ratings.

Universal:

Words With Monsters ($0.99 → Free, 31.9 MB): Battle big, goofy monsters by forming words in this unique word game. Fans of word games will enjoy this twist on the genre.

Words With Monsters utilizes the same tried and true word game formula found in Scrabble, but adds role-playing game elements to provide a wholly unique experience. When you create valid words from your letters and submit them, instead of adding to your total score, those points are actually used as hit points that are applied to your enemy’s health. You must try to create the best possible words and place them on letter multipliers to remove your opponent’s health before they do the same to you.

Words With Monsters is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 100 ratings.

Toca Nature ($2.99 → Free, 68.9 MB): Your little ones can shape their own world and watch it came to life in Toca Nature. It’s the perfect digital toy for any child.

This may be the most interactive Toca Boca title yet, and that’s saying something. Your child can put their fingers to the screen to build up mountains, carve out lakes, chop down trees, or plant a new forest. They’re also able to collect berries, nuts, and mushrooms in order to feed the wildlife. Anything goes in the world of Toca Nature. If your child sees something unexpected that they want to share, they can snap a photo using the built-in camera.

Toca Nature is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 273 ratings.

YoWindow Weather ($2.99 → Free, 45.9 MB): Have a look out the window to see what the conditions are like with this fun weather app. YoWindow is ideal for anyone looking for more than just a list of temperatures from their weather app.

YoWindow is all about watching the weather. You’re presented with a quick look at the current time, temperature, and conditions. Slide your finger from left to right across the screen to scroll time forward and watch as the scene changes to reflect what it’ll be like later on in the day. YoWindow also includes a seven-day forecast and six scenes to choose from.

YoWindow Weather is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 426 ratings.
