Shred halfpipes, let your child star in their own picture book, and race faster than a snail’s pace with today’s collection of apps and games.

Drop into the half pipe and throw huge tricks to climb the leaderboards. The button in the bottom left corner allows you to catch huge air and perform flip tricks with a flick, and the button in the bottom right corner allows you to grab different areas of your board. You’re able to create combos by performing both actions together. Above all else, make sure to get that board back under you to avoid tumbling down the pipe. The game includes four modes, the ability to personalize your character, unlockable content, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.
