- Top 5 iPhone Apps
Hang on to your iPhone’s and iPads folks because we are about to dive right in to some of the best apps of the week!
Our first tip of the hat goes to WordPress, who graciously launched version 2.7. I am not a pessimist, but with over 114 bugs squashed in the latest update, I would say that it may have been overdue.
The expansion of crowd sourcing apps continued this week, however, Localmind gave us a unique micro-environment crowd sourcing utility that lets us tap into the minds of locals to unveil time sensitive data. Is the local bar a sausage fest or worthy of a drop in?
Additionally, there were a plethora of group messaging apps either launched or updated in time for SXSW Interactive exposure, and we covered the top three group messaging apps in an earlier review this week.
Alas, let us now feast on the eye candy of more great apps released this week!
- March Madnress on Demand 2011
NCAA March Madness on Demand 2011 – Free
Ah, our favorite “F” word! FREE.
When it comes to live on-demand sports, you typically have two options: pay for the luxury of having every game at your fingertips or see the highlights. Well, sportsfans, time are a changing!
Thanks to the March Madness on Demand 2011 iPhone app, you can enjoy every single game via their free live streaming videos from the first round to the final four!
Their game center for iPad also allows you to see in-game highlights, team leaders, box scores updated in real time and more.
- Red Bull Augmented Racing
Red Bull Augmented Racing – Free
When you are all amped up on a buzz drink, what is the first thing that you want to do? Grab the keys to your car and race at nearly 200 miles per hour, of course!
We do give Red Bull credit, however, as their entry into the world of iPhone apps is really quite enthralling. In fact, the game is well developed, engaging, and best of all, free! Graphically, the game is solid. From grass debris displacement to burnt tire thread on the pavement, you get it all!
Sure, there are many racing iPhone app games, but what sets Red Bull Augmented Racing apart is that they allow their players to design, and subsequently race on, their own tracks. A small caveat is that you will need a real can of Red Bull to create your own track. Have no fear, however, as the game does provide several racetracks for you to get the action going instantly!
