No animals were harmed in the making of this game. Alright, now with that out of the way, blend away!

Dreamdays HD – Countdown to the Days that Matter ($0.99 → Free, 36.0 MB): A stylish utility app that allows you to count down to the days that matter the most. Dreamdays HD is the perfect app for those who have trouble remembering important events.

Dreamdays HD puts the events that are most important to you front and center. When creating a new countdown for an event you’re able to title and categorize it, set a date, and create a custom background. The app will then begin its countdown and send out a reminder as the day approaches. You will also see the event appear within Notification Center as the date approaches. You’re able to view all of your countdown cards at once, filter them out, or view them separately. The app also includes passcode protection, iCloud support, and the ability to share events.

Dreamdays HD – Countdown to the Days that Matter is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 480 ratings.

Magic Touch: Finger Twister ($1.99 → Free, 85.0 MB): Find out just how amazing your fingers can be with Magic Touch. It’s a great party game.

You’re presented with chips of different colors and you must drag them onto their appropriate targets. The thing is, the environments are constantly changing, and you must keep the chips on their targets for a specific period of time to move on to the next. Are you up to the challenge? The game includes 392 levels with immensely colorful backgrounds, and four modes. By the way, you’ll want to disable multitasking gestures on your iPad before playing Magic Touch. They just don’t go together that well.

Magic Touch: Finger Twister is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 2518 ratings.
