The Wonder Cat is one charming little feline. Even though he’s lost in an untamed land, he always has a smile on his face. He will run along all on his own, so it’s up to you to navigate the platforms with perfectly timed jumps. Try to collect the flowers, stars, and random items the birds carry in to earn new powers and even ride along on friendly creatures. The game includes two distinct modes, and loads of challenges to take on.

The Wonder Cat is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 49 ratings.

With Loan Calculator, you don’t need to have a bunch of reference help files or documentation. Finding out how much your monthly payments will be is as easy as filling out three open fields. Loan Calculator provides you with the option to add additional monthly and yearly payments, helping determine how much faster your loan can be paid off and how much money you’ll save. The total lifetime cost of your loan including interest is calculated as well.

Loan Calculator — What If? is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 720 ratings.

Storm & Skye – An Animated Magical Adventure Story for Kids ($3.99 → Free, 256.6 MB): Your children can join Storm and Skye on a delightfully animated adventure with this audio storybook. It’s ideal for children of all ages since no reading skills are required.

Storm and Skye is about courage, friendship, and pure imagination. The duo set out on their big adventure to explore a rundown car wash. What they find is a whole new world with dragons and knights. This audio animation storybook is about 45 minutes in length, and features rich visuals that come alive with the stellar narration. Storm and Skye includes short chapters that are meant to mimic real physical children’s books. This way your child can enjoy a chapter or two and then later on pick up where they left off.

Storm & Skye – An Animated Magical Adventure Story for Kids is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 47 ratings.

Star Trek ® – Wrath of Gems ($9.99 → Free, 146.9 MB): Take on Klingons, Cardassians, and Romulans in match-three duels in Star Trek – Wrath of Gems. It offers a fun strategic mix of match-three and RPG elements.

Starting today and going through Saturday, all new players will receive a free premium card pack worth $10. The pack will award you with 10 random characters or starships, which will help you progress even faster.
You don’t have to be a fan of Star Trek to enjoy this hybrid match-three game. The basic gameplay mechanics are quite familiar, requiring you to swap gems to create matches of three or more. But instead of going for a high score, you’re going to try to defeat your enemies by matching gems to fire your weapons, build up your defenses, and unleash special attacks. Just be aware that you share the board with your opponent. This adds another layer of strategy since you’ll want to avoid creating easy matches for them. The cards you earn can be used to upgrade your crew and your starships.

Star Trek ® – Wrath of Gems is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 1308 ratings.

Word Mess ($2.99 → Free, 12.4 MB): Go on the hunt for words in this seek and find game. Word Mess can be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone looking to improve their visual scanning abilities and vocabulary.

We like Word Mess because it’s accessible to gamers of all ages. At the beginning of each round you’re presented with a word or type of word that must be discovered among the mess. You have a limited amount of time to track it down and tap on it. You’re able to play all on your own or compete with your friends in head-to-head battles. You’re also able to compare your skills via Game Center.

Word Mess is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 678 ratings.

5coins – Spend Everyday ($1.99 → Free, 5.3 MB): Find out where all of your money is going with this finance app. It’s designed for anyone who wants to keep track of their daily expenses.

Unlike similar finance apps, 5coins doesn’t try to do it all. Instead, it focuses on just what you spend on a daily basis. No jumping through multiple screens to perform a single task. Just swipe down on the screen to enter a value and attach a note. The app will keep a running total of everything you’ve spent, and you can view your expense history with an upward swipe. 5coins is able to alert you when you’re spending too much and have a chance of going over-budget.

5coins – Spend Everyday is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 534 ratings.
