It's Friday again, and that means that we're bringing you a sample of five apps released in the last week! Hopefully you'll find this Friday Five interesting. This week, we've got a Glee app, some exciting games, and a to-do app to boost your productivity when you're not playing all of these games!
IMO: The World of Magic
We previewed IMO a while ago, and now the game has finally been released! IMO is a new MMORPG (massively multiplayer roleplaying game) featuring an open world with plenty of zones and a highly social atmosphere. Create your character, kill some monsters, level up and collect loot...what more could you want? There isn't much direction, but the community is friendly and there's plenty of space to explore. It's based on the freemium model, so it won't cost you a cent to try it out.
The new Glee app is an awesome one. It allows you to record yourself singing the Glee hits, and then gives you a variety of options. You can post your recordings to Facebook, have the app correct your pitch or synthesize a harmony, or even join other Glee app users to create a "virtual" Glee club by mixing your recordings. If you're a so-called Gleek, this app is for you.
Ozone is a mixture of an action and puzzle game that places you in control of an inflatable ball. You have to navigate it through the labyrinthine levels using touch controls, collecting yellow orbs while avoiding obstacles. The developers ask "Can a game be a work of art?", and the audiovisual experience is certainly a great one. Be sure to check out this vibrant new puzzler!
TapDo is a to-do app meant to focus you on doing your tasks, not writing about them. Its QuickEntry system allows you to speed up task-entering, and also supports recurring tasks. Granted, we've seen plenty of to-do apps before, but simple is always nice and TapDo has a fairly robust set of features to go with its simplicity.
Warpgate is a universal space-based game from Freeverse in which you can engage in combat, trade, and empire expansion. The game also features an immense star system for you to explore, so even after you finish the main storyline, there should be plenty to do. Acquiring ships and weapons and completing missions will keep you occupied for some time, too. And who doesn't love space?
