I think this was mentioned in the previous thread, but there is an app from it looks like Korea which also does free movies/shows called PPTV. It is all in Korean I am assuming, but the US movies are in English. It also looks like it depends on the show for the quality. Not even sure if this is legal, but it is in the app store.

Could you please use / instead of \ on the title? It's a silly request :P


Not silly... it's been bugging me as well!

Crackle is pretty great. I just assumed you'd have to pay to watch stuff but I'm watching Seinfeld for free right now. And the picture quality is really good.

Very roomy in here. Would it be appropriate to edit the first post with a section for "must have games." It seems every so often someone gets a new ipad, iphone, ipod and asks "what are some must haves?" It would be great to refer them to the first post. Any thoughts? Maybe it's even broken down by sections - puzzle, shooter, etc.


+1 We need a recommended games section by CAG users in the first post.

It's not some piracy thing if that's what you're asking. It's basically Hulu with a different name.

Dont know if its still free or not, but yesterday there was a game called Beyond Ynth up for free. I just got around to playing it today and its actually a ton of fun. Its kind of like a Puzzle/Platform cross. You play a little big who you want to get from the start to the end of the stage. To get from one side to the other you must do a mix of platforming and figuring out how to move various boxes the bug is in to line them up with other boxes that way you can scurry inside and use them too. As time goes on the game adds challenges like lava pits you need to avoid or dessert light that will kill you if your in it for more then a second or two which make the boxes all the more important.

Another game I came across for free yesterday(again not sure if its still free or not)was Sylish Dash. Its basically yet another Canabalt/Robot Unicorn style game but still one of the better in this genre iv played. It adds some nice features like power ups and the ability to temporarily fly that keep it interesting.

Sonic Speed Ball has dropped to FREE for the first time.
"Sonic Speed Ball is a new type of air pong game based on sound instead of sight. Using your iPhone, or iPod Touch as a racket you swing when the approaching ball sounds closest to you – first player to reach 7 points wins the game.
Half the fun is really getting into it, so jump high or swing low just don’t hurt yourself or your device cause we’re not liable."


And it looks like HBO will be wading in to the mobile stream in the very near future with HBO Go. Guess I'll keep my subscription active for a while longer afterall. . .

I hate to start another one of these "what does/doesn't belong in the tread" discussions, but I feel like including the Mac app store is a little much. Adding in the iPad (which I remember generating a bit of debate itself when it happened) was at least understandable because it's an iOS device like the iPhone and iPod. But adding non-iOS devices (unless the Mac can now run iOS apps?) really seems to me like it's diluting the thread too much.

I agree with this. I mean, you don't see Windows phone 7 deals in the same thread as Xbox live deals even though Microsoft produces both products and they're both downloadable services.

Road Blaster HD is on sale for $.99 (iPad only)
http://appshopper.co...road-blaster-hd

Also the standard version is $.99 as well.

I got the standard version a while back, it's a great game but I don't think I'll be double dipping.

The reason why I did this was because many of the mainstream apps (for example Angry Birds) are available for both platforms and are in both stores. It's easy to take an iOS app and make a few adjustments, and then put it in the Mac App store.

Plus I think Mac OS X Lion may have the ability to run iOS apps natively. There are plans to integrate many of the underlying system cores. Maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but the number of sales for the Mac App store are really small. I don't expect to see that many posts of sales, besides me and a handful of people. Or perhaps even just me, lol.

i don't know how you would implement this but i would appreciate something like this as well. i have had an iphone for years but there could be games that even i don't know about so it wouldn't necessarily be helpful for just new ios device owners. i also think/hope there would be a difference in the games on the list here as opposed to the apps on the top 25 charts on the app store. that would at least help the validity of the list here.

A must-have is always relative to the person that will end up playing it. For example, everybody says that Infinity Blade rocks and that it's one of the best games ever. I bought it last year and believe it was a waste of money (bought it at full price)... hehe.

Try to avoid getting squashed in Hazard, one of the new FAAD games right now.
"The ceiling is about to collapse. You must think quick! There are varying sized gaps in the floor and ceiling - some are big enough to fit inside. Move to one fast and Harry will live!
How long can Harry survive?
There are achievements, power-ups, bonuses and more. Even compete against your friends! If you're a fan of old school arcade games where you're always striving to beat the high score or even minigames from console party games - this is the game for you!"

The match-4 puzzler Gyrotate is the latest OpenFeint FGOTD.
"Finally! The innovative action-puzzle game that you’ve been waiting for. Amazingly simple yet insanely addictive, once you start playing you won’t be able to stop!
It sounds easy, but as you complete each level you’ll need all your skill and concentration to keep going!
If you enjoy puzzle games like Tetris, Bejeweled, Fling! and Trism, then you’ll love Gyrotate."

Burger Queen
is the featured freebie on Great App a Day. Mmmmm. . .burgers.
"Father dumped Burger K on his daughter and left for his Hawaii vacation.
According to father's letter, the mission is not to ruin Burger K and to keep its reputation until his coming back!
Unfortunately the fate of Burger K is not kind any more because the daughter's skill will be improving quickly and she will change the sign of Burger k... it's Burger Queen."

I took a stab at starting the Recommended Games on the wiki. I tried to avoid titles like Angry Birds and DoodleJump. Feel free to edit as needed. I just put some titles in there to get it started since I didn't have much time. Thanks!
