Another week coming to a close here at the iPhone App Review, and just as the sweltering summer heat kicks in, too! If you’re indoors and wicked bored, don’t touch that dial: We’ve got our top five iPhone apps picked out and ready to roll your way. But before we dive into the meat and potatoes of this weeks gems, take a sneak peek at some of the cool apps we covered this week:
This Week’s Stand-Out Apps
It was a fantastic week for games here at the App Review: We got our avian-style groove-thing on with Bubble Birds and Duck Hunt AR, but we also showed you how to ring your tropical bush with Jungle Games. We even showed you how to save the planet with Joe Versus, in case that’s more your style.
We also spent some time with two great educational apps, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi HD for the iPad and iTeacher for the iPhone. And finally, if sports is more your thing, we took a look at an excellent basketball resource Next Game Live for Basket.
That’s all for our sneak-peak this week, but don’t think we’re done just yet. No, we’re only getting started! Check us out after the break for a look at our Top 5 iPhone and iPad apps.
Top 5 iPhone and iPad Apps of the Week
Video Time Machine – $ .99
Are you feeling a bit retro? Do you wish you had a portal into the past, or even just a way to see video and photos from as far back as 1860? Look no further, good sir, as Video Time Machine, by the folks at YouTube Time Machine, has finally landed on both the iPhone and the iPad.
The iPhone app is like a mobile museum, featuring curated videos from as far back as a century and a half. Simply select a time-frame and a category (categories range from old television programs to classic music, and even to oldies adverts) and away the iPhone app goes, pulling up media for your perusal. It’s a unique blast from the past that can be had at a stellar price, and if you find a video you like you can immediately share it to either Facebook or Twitter.
