General iOS FAQ





1. Make sure to check for periodic updates either in iTunes or on your iOS devices. For each release of new firmware, there's usually a bunch of games updated right afterward.

2. Some applications also go on sale by their authors when they reach 1 million download and similar milestones.

3. Apps often have specials the day before, during, and after holidays, regardless if said game/app is related to the holiday.

4. Newly released apps will often have a % or dollar amount off for a limited period of time to gain a large following quicker. While browsing the app store you can go to a particular type or genre and order according to release date. This can make finding new app discounts faster.

5. Apps can be re-downloaded from your iOS device. To do this open the App Store and look for a tab called "Purchased". From here you can re-download any previously purchased apps.

6. I strongly advise not to buy iTunes Gift Cards by 3rd parties unless you know they can be trusted. Retail stores, receiving cards as gifts are the best ways. There are many credit card scams, stolen cards, hacked cards going around, especially on Ebay.

7. If you are the victim of a iTunes Card scam or get your account locked due to one not all hope is lost. Apple has been fairly lenient on these issues. Call Apple directly at 1-800-MY-APPLE or check the iTunes Store support page. Also going to your local Apple Store to discuss it can help. The account locking is an automated process and can be reversed. This can take time so be cautious if you use gift cards from 3rd party sources.

8. If you somehow break your iOS device, you have some options. If you bought the Applecare warranty it should be covered for most items. If your Applecare ran out or you don't have one, try using one of the repair guides on iFixit to repair it yourself. Apple Stores have been known to give discounts if you bring in a iOS device that they will not fix since it's not in warranty. This discount however is very small.

9. Using a screen protector can extend the life of your device. Most stores carry these, but they can be hard to install. The best I have personally used are made by a company called Power Support. They have both clear and anti-glare protectors. They are easier to install because the protector is a firm yet thin piece of plastic. Griffin Technologies and Zagg are also very good.

10. Universal Apps have a small plus sign in the upper left corner next to their price. They can be played natively on both the iPad and iPod/iPhone. iPhone games that are not universal can still be played on the iPad with a lower resolution. Non universal iPad games cannot be played on the iPhone.




Recommended Games by Genre





50 Essential Apps Article at Macworld 12/26/11





Feel free to add games, genres or move titles as needed. This list is to give CAGs a chance to catch up on missed high-quality games and to get new users started on "can't miss" titles to download for their new idevice.

Underlined titles are universal (ipad and iphone/ipod touch).
Italic are iPad only.
^ are retina optimized for the iPad.
* are iPhone 5/5th gen iPod Touch optimized.
Some game developers/companies like to offer free versions which are usually demos of the full version and a great way to check out and determine if you will actually like a particular game without paying anything. Some game developers/companies like Zynga, however, like to offer free, AD-Supported, versions of their games which means you get the full game, but it features ads and by buying the paid version you remove those ads. AD-Supported games are noted as such.

Added Avernum under recommended RPGs. I've put about 15 hours in and can honestly say it's the closest to a Baldur's Gate/Fallout experience you'll get on iOS, just fantastic! Although not on sale right now it's worth it at full price for sure.

It sounds like a game but it's really a music-making app, and BeatForge (Universal) has now dropped to FREE for the very first time.
"As simple as it gets.
• BeatForge couldn’t be easier to use. The entire screen is a field of buttons, and you just light them up to trigger drums, synths, and all kinds of other sounds.
• Everything is kept in perfect time. No matter when you tap a button, the sequencer will trigger the sound at the perfect moment.
• You don’t have to worry about what sounds good and what doesn’t; BeatForge keeps things working together perfectly.
No experience required."

Stunt Car Racing 99 Tracks
is another first-time freebie.
"Play with friends in a nitro-fuelled stunt racing game that'll take you across desert, forest and ice! Perform the art of extreme flips, jumps and wheelies in the ultimate off-road challenge and even experience head-to-head action in Hot Seat Mode. Earn nitro boosts performing tricks and collect health to avoid spectacular crashes. Dash to the finish line and get ready for the ride of your life!"

3D Brick Breaker Revolution
came out over three years ago and it's never been FREE until now. Find out for yourself if there's a reason for that . . .
"Get blown away by stunning 3D graphics, infinite levels, insane power ups, secret bonus levels, epic boss battles and more! Three amazing game modes deliver endless excitement: Revolution, Classic and Time Attack! Pick up over 20 unique power-ups including Nukes, Magnets, Rockets, and Unstoppable Fury Ball! Watch your score bubble up as you are racing to break blocks in this innovative puzzler. Break your first brick to start a revolution today!"

i remember someone recommended a fishdom game, but it looks like there are a couple and they're different? (some are match 3, and some are hidden object, i think?)

anyway, point is... fishdom h2o: hidden oddessy just dropped to 2.99, which still seems expensive to me... but my wife likes hidden object games. worth it?

honestly, i don't even buy 2.99 games for myself so i don't know that i will for her (since she might not even want to play it)... but still, i know she likes hidden object games so i might.
