Honorable Mentions

Cry Translator: This one purports to tell you what your baby’s various gurgles, yelps and screams mean. This sounds implausible! Also implausible: That it’s somehow worth $US30 (currently reduced to $13). Just jingle your keys, try to feed it and smell for poop. Parenting, done.

Family Guy: Hey look, it’s a game based on a popular-but-well-past-its-prime television series! It’s a bit Nintendo-like, which is charming, and the free version is worth a few minutes of your time, provided you don’t hate Family Guy.

This list is in no way definitive. If you’ve spotted a great app that hit the store this week, give us your first-hand impressions in the comments. And for even more apps: see our previous weekly roundups here, and check out our Favourite iPhone Apps Directory. Have a great weekend, everybody!
