What Apps Should I Download For My iPhone?

Lifehacker released their ‘Lifehacker Pack for iPhone’ this week, so I figured in honor of their list, we’d go ahead and compile a nice group of lists recommending you the best apps around. Whether your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is brand new, or maybe you just got a brand spanking new iTunes gift card and are itching to spend it on something, we could all use a good list to point us in the right direction from time to time. As you might imagine, there’s alot of crossover between these lists, so pick your favorite and go to town!

And of course, don’t forget to check out our growing list of reviews for iPhone apps, iPhone games, and iPad games. And as always, if you’d like us to review a game or app for you, just let us know in the comments. You still have a few days left to get yourself entered into our contest to win a $25 iTunes gift card!

Sneak Peek: Decipher for iPad

It’s been quite a while since we released an iOS app, largely in part because we’ve been busy doing custom app development for some local companies, but we’re back. That is as soon as Apple approves it.

In the mean time, let me give you a sneak peek at our latest creation, Decipher for iPad!

Decipher for iPad

This is the followup to one of our previous games, Decipher Extreme. In essence it’s the same game, just redesigned for the iPad with higher resolution graphics and a cleaner interface. Decipher is based off the classic puzzle game Mastermind, the objective of the game is to guess the color pattern hidden at the top of the screen, pretty simple, yet quite addicting.

Want a free copy when it gets approved? Of course you do! Just sound off in the comments with your guess on what day Apple will approve it. Closest guess will receive a promo code for the game.

Decipher 1.0 Released!

Happy day! Late last night Apple approved Decipher and it is now available for download from the App Store.

Decipher is based off the classic puzzle game Mastermind, and the objective of the game is to guess the color pattern hidden at the top of the screen. There’s already an update with GUI improvements pending, naturally it’s a free update for everyone who buys version 1.0.

First iPhone Game

Our first iPhone game will be hitting the app store in the next two weeks, it’s super basic, but for starting with no prior knowledge of Cocoa, I think it’s alright.

Stay tuned for further details, and of course, a chance to win a free copy of our game!

p.s. This whole process is hinged on Apple actually approving our app. Minor detail.

Does what it’s supposed to, easy to use UI.
Crashes regularly, Yahoo-esque fonts detract from overly flow of the application, doesn’t offer charts.
