That Zombie Defense game is VERY good, and I really don't care for the majority of tower defense games.

think of command and conquer, but instead of making troops, you make base defenses. theres even tech trees to upgrade your turrets.

I vote for including utility and other non-game app deals. I never see any deals on those because nobody posts them, and some of my most-used apps aren't games. Also I agree they need to hurry up on that Netflix streaming app. It would be perfect for the iPhone. My guess is that it will get announced at WWDC and will require OS 4.0, but who knows?

Two non-game apps I use are:

AppVaultPro - Someone on here suggested it. I like all the different apps in one, I know there are free ones out there but this one has some great stuff I use. It was taken down for a while due to some conflicts but it's back up now

LoseIt! - I am on a journey to lose 300lbs and once I got a Touch I started looking for apps to help. I used to use FitDay to track my calories & exercise but it was a pain because I would have to diary at the end of the day. This app pretty much mimics FitDay (but doesn't do the homemade recipe feature - which I love about FitDay), it tracks calories, exercise, weight, and has a rather extensive food category list which includes both brand name items AND fast food restaurant menu items. VERY handy when you're with someone and they mention running to McD's for dinner and not having the nutritional info handy for the customer (which they should). Losing weight doesn't have to be about avoiding such places but making better & informed choices...


Those are a few that I use...

One of my favorite non-gaming apps is M-Train (http://appshopper.co...fitness/m-train). It's (mostly) FREE and totally useful for new workout ideas.

"Conceived and developed by three of today’s most sought after fitness trainers, M-TRAIN provides all of the benefits of an expert personal trainer without the expense, on your own schedule, and with your own music.

-- M-TRAIN, an innovative application designed to give the user the freedom to workout with a personal trainer anywhere and at anytime. The app. offers pre-designed workouts or the user can create their very own training regimen to their own music. No matter who you are, regardless of your fitness level, M-TRAIN offers everyone a satisfying and results-oriented workout just as you would achieve from an in-person session with one of the M-TRAIN trainers."

Thanks guys for the utilities apps, I ll definitely check some of them out. I bought iFitness and I like it alot but I paid 2 bucks for it which i still feel is worth it. But for free i ll def check out Mtrain. LoseIt sounds pretty good too.


Some Utilities i like to use are:
(all are free except appzilla at a buck)

Appzilla: which just got a new update that added 30 or so new utilities the already 50.
http://appshopper.co...0-in-1-appzilla


Alarm Clock (FREE version): this is what i use to get my ass up in the morning, it has the most annoying ringer which is the old school clock that instantly makes me pop up. There are other cool features to the free version as well.
http://appshopper.co...larm-clock-free

Local Concerts: Great for finding concerts for bands you like that are playing around you. It also sees what music you have on your your ipod and puts it as your favorites as well. http://appshopper.co.../local-concerts

Comics: gives a good variety of alot of indie as well as some mainstream comics and has free ones to download as well. http://appshopper.com/books/comics
another related is the marvel comics app that is essentially just like it but all marvel.

And lastly, I like to use Inside XBox: which allows you to add up to i believe 20-25 friends to your xbox buddy list and follow. It also updates your xbox ID and has news and other misc xbox related stuff. good for what it is. also its the "official" xbox app.

So you know what I hate about new threads... It's the fact that all the folk who subscribed to the old thread are now forced to resubscribe. And if your like me and have been on the forums forever, you end up with a million thread subscriptions that seems to interfere with the instant update feature. Sucks !!

I also have iFitness and I like its encyclopedic nature for looking up / trying out new moves. The nice thing about M-Train is that it's comprised of actual workouts. You can just hit "play" and follow along. The only downside is that it doesn't include all the levels for each category (Power, Agility, Strength, Endurance). It gives you one level for each so you can get a feel for the various routines. You have to purchase the additional levels. However, they keep adding new routines so it's really not a bad deal at all (especially for free).

I wonder about this to, so I pm'd CheapyD. I'd like to see a feature where when a thread is archived for getting too large, a new thread is created, and all those who subscribed to the archived thread are auto subscribed to the new thread without interruption. That way you really wouldn't have to do anything. Links to old archived threads could then be inserted into the first section of the OP.

I didn't see it posted but Dracula: The Path of the Dragon - Part 1 is free until May 27. Wish it had been longer and it is a TBC but I liked it.

Phoenix Wright is definitely worth the $5. I remember seeing the DS version go as high as $90 when it was scarce and it is a GREAT game.

Here's your mid-week free sites update:

Free App a Day has something called Fishies (http://www.freeappad...day=26&month=05). Can't really tell if it's a game or just a fish-keeping sim.

OpenFeint is featuring Fluttr (http://www.freeappad...day=26&month=05).

Great App a Day has the previously-mentioned Spaceballs.

Free App Calendar is showing the puzzler Doodle Pubbox (http://www.freeappca...ails.php?id=184).

A pretty blah assortment overall today. Maybe some better freebies will come along as the day progresses. Have a great Wednesday anyway!

It DOES do the homemade recipe feature as well. To get there:

More -> Edit Food & Exercises -> Recipes.

I've never tried FitDay so I don't know if it is more unwieldy, etc, but the Recipes work well, provided you pay attention to what your ultimate serving size is as well as how many total servings you've made.

If you like Zuma, try Spaceballs, it does seem a little easy though and it is extremely barebones. Atlantis Sky Patrol is better and that one has been free in the past, but I have had some control issues with that, I think that mouse or controller is the best way to play these Zuma-clones.

If you're a shmups fan, you have to pick up the free Warblade demo (http://appshopper.co...s/warblade-free). This is the 21st Century update of oldschool classics like Galaga and Galaxian with tons of power ups, bonus items, bonus levels, etc. A full-length release is supposedly in the works, but until then this 25-level teaser is well worth the download. Highly recommended for mindless shooting fun.

I don't think you can delete it but you can move it to one of the "additional" pages (either on your device or through iTunes) to free up its slot. There were a few tutorials on how to add additional pages (beyond the allotted 11) back on the pre-archived version of this forum.

Conversely, I moved my Safari browser to one of my extra pages a long time ago and it got bumped into oblivion when I exceeded 14 pages worth of apps. I cleared off a bunch of programs but I still can't access it unless I do a search. It doesn't even show up in my Apps list in iTunes even though it's still installed on my Touch. Anyone know how I can get this sucker back into the land of the living?

If you can hide it, why not just hide it? Those of you with jailbroken iPhones, I keep thinking about doing that, but I find it a bit scary. Also I'm going to want to upgrade to 4.0 when that's out. I presume if I jailbreak I won't be able to upgrade to 4.0 - is that correct? If so I guess I'll just wait it out.
