Visit every corner of the solar system, adjust the speed and pitch of a song, and guide a unicorn on a magical adventure 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.

Universal:

Unicorn Glitterluck – Rainbow Adventure for kids ($2.99 → Free, 226.7 MB): Go on a magical adventure with Unicorn Glitterluck. It’s for children ages five and under.

Unicorn Glitterluck is a 3-D runner designed specifically for children. All they need to do is tap to jump and guide their unicorn to the magic castle. Along the way they can collect jewels, and when they reach the end they’ll be tasked with counting them up. The game also includes the ability to completely customize the unicorn.

Unicorn Glitterluck – Rainbow Adventure for kids is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 15 ratings.

Solar Walk 2 – Space Missions & Solar System in 3D ($2.99 → Free, 573.5 MB): Visit every corner of the solar system with Solar Walk 2. It’s educational and entertaining.

Solar Walk 2 brings the solar system to life. You’re able to travel around the solar system with swipes and zoom in using common gestures. Zooming in will slow time down to a crawl while zooming out will send it speeding into the future. You’re also able to jump to a specific date in time to view how the planets align. The app includes stunning detail of planetary atmospheres, solar flares, auroras, and asteroid belts.

Solar Walk 2 – Space Missions & Solar System in 3D is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 260 ratings.

PitchFork ($0.99 → Free, 368.0 KB): Adjust the speed and pitch of any song with PitchFork. It’s for music lovers of all kinds.

PitchFork is simple and straightforward. It allows you to select and play any non-DRM song from your library. Then slide your finger up and down over the screen to adjust the pitch and playback speed. Pitch and playback speed can be adjusted independently as well.

PitchFork is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 24 ratings.

Hidden Objects: Zombies Escape ($0.99 → Free, 77.5 MB): Help track down zombies in Zombies Escape. Fans of hidden objects games will love this one.

You’ll have to search the entire institute for clues that will lead you to the wacky zombies. While searching for objects within a scene you’re able to get a closer look with the usual pinch-to-zoom gesture, and you can receive a hint if you get stuck. Don’t just tap wildly on a scene, either. It will cost you points and remove your multiplier. You’re not just on the hunt for objects, however, as you’ll also be presented with puzzles and have to spot the differences in some scenes.

Hidden Objects: Zombies Escape is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 654 ratings.

iPad:

Dream-X ($2.99 → Free, 32.3 MB): Map your mind with this powerful productivity app. It’s the perfect app for helping you visualize your thoughts.

No matter how big or small the idea, Dream-X will help you realize it in visual form. You’re able to choose from two different themes and then get right to your mind mapping. Start off with a single idea and then branch out from there. You’re able to create new branches by selecting the idea you want them to branch off from and then tapping and holding on a spot on the screen. Each branched off idea can be color coded, include photo and message, include a task or subtask, and sport an icon. You’re able to freely rearrange your ideas just by dragging them around the canvas. You’re also able to export your mind maps and share them via email. The app includes tutorial videos and samples to help you get started.

Dream-X is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 51 ratings.
