Play and manage your podcasts, create ice cream and music simultaneously, and time your jumps to avoid being turned into pixels 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:

Few – Manual Camera Controls ($0.99 → Free, 1.9 MB): Manually control the focus, exposure, and white balance of your shots with this photography app. It’s great for anyone who wants more control over their photo capturing.

Sometimes simplicity is the key to taking a great photo. Few offers just that. The app features three buttons along the bottom right corner of the screen. Just tap on each one to adjust the focus, exposure, and white balance of your real-time camera feed. Whatever you capture will automatically be saved to your camera roll.

Few – Manual Camera Controls is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 24 ratings.

Castaway – Podcast Player ($2.99 → Free, 2.3 MB): Play and manage your podcasts with ease with Castaway. It’s for those who want a podcast app that’s clean and simple.

Castaway is for the eclectic podcast listener. It doesn’t make you commit to an entire podcast series, allowing you to listen to any one in the directory without subscribing. Of course, you can subscribe to your favorites, and either listen immediately by streaming them or download them for later listening. Podcasts refresh in the background and can be downloaded automatically, ensuring you’ll always have the latest and greatest content.

Castaway – Podcast Player is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.

Universal:

More ElectroTrains ($1.99 → Free, 2.7 MB): What’s better than ElectroTrains? More ElectroTrains, of course! It’s for those who enjoy a good strategy game.

Just like the original title, your job is to guide trains of different colors to their correct stations without allowing them to smash into each other. Trains enter the screen as one of three colors, and you must direct them to their matching stations by tapping on the tracks to switch them. When your passengers have been delivered your train will turn white, allowing you to guide it back off the screen. The game includes two difficulty levels, six maps, and leaderboards via Game Center.

More ElectroTrains is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 86 ratings.

Space is Key ($0.99 → Free, 26.8 MB): Time your jumps perfectly to avoid being turned into pixels in Space is Key. It’s for fans of the original Flash game and those who enjoy platformers.

Tap on the screen at just the right moment to cause your square to jump over the many obstacles. As you progress through the game the pace picks up and so does the snark from the computer that’s narrating every step of your journey. The game includes 131 levels, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Space is Key is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 245 ratings.

Bubl Ice Cream – A musical dessert for kids ($2.99 → Free, 46.7 MB): Create ice cream and music simultaneously with Bubl Ice Cream. It’s a fun distraction for children above the age of one and a half.

Let your child’s imagination run wild with Bubl Ice Cream. They start off with an empty cone, and they can fill it with different scoops of ice cream. The ice cream scoops will come alive with a tap and sing in 18 different languages. The scoops can also be topped with sauces and glazes, all of which add to the musical symphony. When the cone is topped off, it can be fed to one of six characters.

Bubl Ice Cream – A musical dessert for kids is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 29 ratings.
