iPhone:

Build It! Miami Beach Resort (Full) ($2.99 → Free, 173.9 MB): Build your very own coastal resort city from the ground up in this strategy game. It’s ideal for gamers who enjoy Sim City.

It all begins in the simpler times of the 1920s. You must start out by building small structures like bungalows and diners, and then work your way up through the years to construct glitzy hotels and chic boutiques. Along the way you’ll have to make repairs, manage upgrades, and take care of deliveries. Your end goal is to create a bustling and diverse resort. Are you up for the challenge? The game includes 60 levels spanning six decades, 18 buildings to work with, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Build It! Miami Beach Resort (Full) is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 33 ratings.

Gratitude Journal ~ the original! ($1.99 → Free, 12.4 MB): Increase your level of happiness with Gratitude Journal. It’s for those who want to improve their outlook on life.

Gratitude Journal will help you better appreciate the little things in life and be more positive. All you have to do is consider the great things that happened to you throughout the day and record them as journal entries. Try to aim for at least five things. Really push yourself. Each entry can include location data, photos, and even the people involved. When you’re done reflecting you can share your entries or keep them private. An inspirational quote or motivational advice will appear after each entry. The app also includes the ability to export entries, reminders, a slideshow view, and the ability to backup entries.

Gratitude Journal ~ the original! is available for free today only (11/02). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 3707 ratings.

Universal:

Striding Bird – An Interactive Tale for kids, families and educators ($1.99 → Free, 46.9 MB): An interactive story about a young bird trying to find his way in the world. It’s for parents who want to instill a positive attitude in their child.

Striding Bird wanted nothing more than to be like his four-legged friends and not have to worry about living high up in the trees. But he soon realizes that no matter where he is and what he does, he must make the most of what he has. The original story includes dynamic interactive items on every page, fun animations, charming narration, original music and sound effects, and highlighted text so your child can follow along.

Striding Bird – An Interactive Tale for kids, families and educators is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 54 ratings.

7 Planets ($0.99 → Free, 36.1 MB): Roll wooden balls around within a box in order to get them into their correct rows. It’s for anyone who enjoys logic puzzle games.

This is the type of game that will kick start your brain and get those juices flowing in the morning. All you have to do is swipe to roll the balls and try to get them into their appropriate positions. What makes this task so difficult, however, is that when one ball is moved, all of the balls in that row or column move with it until they are stopped by a wall. Try to restore order in as few moves and as quickly as possible to earn a high score. The game includes three single player modes, and an online multiplayer mode so you can compete against your friends.

7 Planets is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 81 ratings.

DUO! Pairs & Brain Fitness Game ($1.99 → Free, 33.1 MB): Stimulate your brain with DUO! It’s for those who enjoy memory games.

DUO! is unlike any memory game you’ve ever played. Sure, you’re still required to tap on cards to flip them over, memorize their positions, and match pairs, but that’s where the similarities end. Each level offers a new and exciting challenge, where you must achieve specific goals, utilize wild cards, follow cards as they are shuffled, and much more. You’re awarded bonus points for creating matches consecutively, which will help you achieve a perfect rating and unlock new levels.

DUO! Pairs & Brain Fitness Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 19 ratings.

iPad:
