I have a lot to do this weekend, but most of it will involve pornographic photos of iPads, because I pre-ordered one and I have never owned an iPad before. In fact, it’s been a while since I’ve owned an iOS device at all, so I’m going to track down an iPhone-carrying friend and hold them hostage while I find some apps to install when my iPad gets here next week. Why not an iPad-carrying friend, you ask? Because I am writing about iPhone apps. Here are some good ones from the past week or so.
Frames: You like time-lapse videos? Of course you do. People love those things. Frames takes time-lapses for you, and it makes it damn simple. Because while I do enjoy a good time-lapse, I am an editing dunce and I cannot make one in iMovie. Or any other application that requires basic human comprehension skills. So use Frames if you are very stupid like me or very lazy, also like me. $2.99. [imgclear]
Pxl: Retina screens are beautiful! But dangerous. You can very easily fall into a belief that you are actually looking into the real real world, and that you have to escape from whatever made up hell you’re living in so you can be with your children like that lady in Inception. This thing pixelates your stuff, or something, and makes it look like that photo up above. IT MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE. $0.99. [imgclear]
Flight Control Rocket: Kotaku says, “In Flight Control Rocket, rather than coaxing aeroplanes onto airstrips, players will be docking spaceships. In space. The player will use many of the same techniques and tactics from the original Flight Control to bring the spaceships in safely in this colourful, bouncy, retro-futuristic game.”
