Help Pi escape ancient chambers, play and manage podcasts, and help Melvin find all of the stars with today’s collection of apps and games.

iPhone:

Castaway – Podcast Player ($1.99 → Free, 23.6 MB): Play and manage your podcasts with ease with Castaway. It’s for those who want a podcast app that’s clean and simple.

Castaway is for the eclectic podcast listener. It doesn’t make you commit to an entire podcast series, allowing you to listen to any one in the directory without subscribing. Of course, you can subscribe to your favorites, and either listen immediately by streaming them or download them for later listening. Podcasts refresh in the background and can be downloaded automatically, ensuring you’ll always have the latest and greatest content.

Castaway – Podcast Player is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 19 ratings.

Universal:

Songbot: On-Demand Talk Shows & Songs ($1.99 → Free, 19.7 MB): Find the exact song you want to hear with Songbot. It’s for those with eclectic tastes.

Songbot searches over 90,000 AM, FM, and Internet radio stations to find what they’re playing in real-time. All you have to do is enter the name of an artist or song you want to hear. If it’s available, it’ll appear. You’re also able to search for your favorite talk radio and sports radio shows. Songbot is even able to offer suggestions based on what you’ve listened to. The app includes the ability to favorite songs and stations, song history, and a list of the top songs.

Songbot: On-Demand Talk Shows & Songs is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 327 ratings.

Warp Shift ($2.99 → Free, 326.6 MB): Guide a girl and her magical companion through an ancient puzzle in Warp Shift. It’s for those who enjoy games like Monument Valley.

Pi needs your help. She’s trapped within a maze-like structure with no clear way out. It’s up to you to swipe to swap chambers and help her make her escape. Not everything is as it seems, however. You’ll come across warps, switches, and doors that can’t be passed through. Use every bit of your brain power to complete each level in the target number of moves. The game includes six worlds and 90 levels.

Warp Shift is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 260 ratings.

Star Thief ($0.99 → Free, 37.7 MB): Help Melvin find all of the stars and save Sammy in Star Thief. It’s charming casual fun.

All of the stars have gone missing, including Melvin the moon’s best friend Sammy. It’s up to you to get them all back by tapping and swiping across a colorful landscape. The camera will move ahead on its own. As the stars come into view, you’ll have to tap and swipe in various ways in order to collect the stars. Just watch out for the obstacles that stand in your way. The game includes five worlds, 70 levels, local cooperative play, and Apple Watch support.

Star Thief is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 95 ratings.
