Conquer territories, shoot everything in sight, and view your calendar from the Today view 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.


DEATHSMILES ($11.99 → Free, 282.4 MB): Blast your enemies while dodging their attacks in Deathsmiles. This shooter will please arcade fans young and old.

Deathsmiles is a side-scrolling gothic shooter that was originally released for Xbox 360. The developer has retained all of the action-packed elements of the original game in this iPhone port while adding revamped character designs and new game modes. All you really need to know is that your character will fire on their own while you take aim at enemies and dodge their return fire. The game includes a wide range of power-ups, multiple control settings, and tons and tons of waves of bullets.

DEATHSMILES is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 515 ratings.


iCal Widget ($1.99 → Free, 4.0 MB): View all of your calendar events from the Today view with iCal Widget. It’s for those who are always looking for new ways to save some time.

iCal Widget isn’t a standard calendar app in any way, shape, or form. It taps into your iDevice’s native calendar app in order to populate a Today view widget with everything that’s coming up on your schedule. When you launch the app itself, you’re greeted with ways to customize the look and content of the widget. iCal Widget includes a day timeline, a week timeline, and the ability to scroll through days and weeks.

iCal Widget is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 26 ratings.

Orderly – Reminders, Tasks, ToDo Lists, Project tasks ($1.99 → Free, 16.8 MB): Keep your life in order with this gesture-driven productivity app. Orderly is for AppsGoneFree users who want a more fluid way to manage their tasks.

Orderly is all about prioritizing tasks to ensure you complete the most important ones on time. When creating a task list you’re able to title the group and add as many items as necessary. The menu bar icons at the top allow you to quickly change the background color, text, and font to make the list stand out. A priority level, reminder, and proximity reminder can be attached as well. All of your task lists will appear as little notes on the app’s home screen presented in order of importance.

Orderly – Reminders, Tasks, ToDo Lists, Project tasks is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 343 ratings.

Totems: Game of Conquest ($3.99 → Free, 45.4 MB): Take turns placing totems in order to claim more territories than your opponents in Totems. Those who enjoy strategic board games like Risk will have a blast with this one.

The great thing about Totems is that it’s easy to learn, but difficult to master. Drag and drop totems on to free territories to claim them. At the end of your turn, you’ll receive another totem from the pile. To take over an opponent’s territory, place a matching totem on an open adjacent territory. The more neighboring territories you have, the higher your score will be. If you don’t have a matching totem, you can swap out all of yours for new ones, but you can only do this once per game. The game features both offline and online modes, and a wide variety of maps.

Totems: Game of Conquest is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 196 ratings.
