LunaRufina Posted November 8, 2009 Share Posted November 8, 2009 I just thought it would be neat to exchange the neat, interesting, useful, fun, whatever apps we've come across for iPhone or iPod so we can pass 'em on. There are, what, 85,000 of them? [or is that a number for something else?] Which makes it really hard to filter through them, even with "Power Search". So I thought if we point out a few of them that would be fun. Here are a few of mine: iassociate It's a paid app, $1.99, but it's really cool. It's a game with word associations. You start with a word web, with one word and many lines leading off of it and you have to guess what words are associated with it [you are given the number of letters], and ass you guess the words, more blanks appear. It's difficult, but do-able, interesting, and really makes you think. I REALLY think it's worth the two bucks and there's lots of levels. There's also associatethis, which is the free version, many FEWER levels, but it's free so will give you a chance to test it out first. It's a game that is more ongoing and you likely won't complete it in one sitting so it's neat to have and pull out for a few minutes while waiting for an appointment or on the bus or some such thing. mixology is an app that is a database of drinks. But, it also gives bartending tips, and provides a "cabinet" feature in which you can enter the mixers and such that you have and give you a list of various drinks that you are able to make. I think this is a good app for being free, my only issue is that it doesn't have things like "southern comfort" to search under and yet includes it in the results. It's neat and helps you make a proper drink, not some pan dimensional gargleblaster that will get you tanked in two minutes flat. There's a paid app with a couple more features, like save favorite drink, for $.99. Scramble by Zynga is fun. It's a word game kind of like boggle where you try to make as many words as possible out of the letters given. You can change the dimensions of the board, as well as play online. It's free and works quickly and smoothly. It's fun for a couple minutes but I find myself taken in by it for longer periods of time. The TapTap games, like TapTapRevenge2 are fun. They are kind of like a Dance Dance Revolution for your fingers. There is a track of light and small dots appear to the beat of the music playing. The object is to stay on rhythm and tap at the appropriate times. It's fun but there's a bit of a physical learning curve- getting your fingers to learn just how to tap, though it doesn't take long, and there are a few different levels of difficulty. It's free, and you can download many different songs for free to play in the game as well. The Facebook application is pretty useful. It is set up for the ipod/iphone so it works well and is set nicely, with easy to use functions. It's free. It's not necessary, but kind of nice. Just wanted to let people know it's available in case they weren't aware. Target has an application that let's you search the current week's ad, browse stores, and figure out where an item is located in a given store. Which I think is pretty fucking cool. It's supposed to let you know the current stock in the store, but I haven't tried that yet and also, as it gets closer to christmas, I imagine that would only be semi accurate anyway. Still kind of neat. You can use power search or the regular search under applications for any of these. Anyone else have some? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
