The Week In iPhone Apps: Google Who?

Still, with this? Well, luckily there's plenty of other stuff to tide us over until the Google Voice fiasco resolves itself. Like zombies! And weddings, and exercise, and soundscapes, and urban art, and jokes, and, and, and...

The Onion Microfiche Reader: It's from the Onion, so it's pretty much guaranteed not to be not funny, but! For all the neat microfilm-esque presentation, this thing doesn't actually have any articles—just a bunch of those jokes-in-a-headline that they're so good at. Still entertaining though. $1.19.

Reqall: Evernote integration. That is all. Free.

Strands: The best free exercise app for the iPhone now lets you replay your GPS-recorded running path, signals you with audio cues during exercise, includes route elevation profiles and supports in-app playlists.

Dream Day Wedding: Married in Manhattan: A fantasy wedding planner that is evidently really, really popular. Maybe because it's fun, or maybe because it's the easiest way to make your girlfriends super, super, super uncomfortable. Four dollars.

Alive 4-Ever: There are a surprising number of zombie survival apps in the App Store, I guess because they're easy to make or something? I don't know. I do know, however, that this top-down shooting is really, really fun, and only $1.19.

Kodak Smilemaker: A charming app that adds comical smiles to your photos, or a meditation of the tragedies of birth deformities? I have no idea, but either way, its free. So.

NPR News: Sorry to keep bringing this app up, but it's great, and the biggest issue people had with the last version—the lack of fast-forwarding and pausing—is solved in this one. Still free.

Air: Brian Eno done made another app, y'all! The last one made amazing music based (partly) on user input; this one makes amazing music based (partly) on user input, except it sounds totally different. It's as mesmerising as the last one, but feels fresh. $2.49.

Polyghost It took me a while to figure this one out, partly because I'd never really heard of "Vinyl art" toys before. Well, this is what they are, and like them or not, Polyghost is an aesthetically cool app. Here what you do: Using microtransactions, you buy little 3D characters which you can transpose onto photographs. The pricing's a little unfortunate—five dollars for the app—but if you're a fan of artists like Tim Biskup and DEVILROBOTS, the rendering in this app does the work justice. So twee!
