Five for Friday: Week of October 7

Posted by Lisa Caplan on October 7th, 2011

There were fewer new games released this week than we've seen, with the usual suspects putting out few if any new titles. There were some apps released worth noting that you don't want to miss. Many are free, and there's something for every age. If we missed your favorite from the past week, let us know in the comments below.


NHL Game Center 2011-2012

Put out by the NHL in time for the first frosts in the North East, and featured by Apple as App of the Week. NHL Game Center allows hockey fans to access scores, stats, game photos, schedules, news, standings and a “3D Ice Tracker” on any iOS device. Users can upgrade in-app to a Premium service for $19.99 which adds in-game video highlights, live radio and other perks and for a full $159.99 die-hard puck-a-holics can subscribe to NHL Game Center Live (or use an existing account) and never miss a moment of the action. The premium version can also be purchased separately.

Tweet Speaker - Listen to Twitter

Since Twitter and Apple are getting cosy in soon-to-be-released iOS 5, this app might well be renamed tweetPod even if neither giant is behind it. Tweet Speaker is Twitter out loud, ideal for times when not only hands, but eyes, are occupied. The app reads feeds, has Tweet Marker support, Airplay and a really nice interface reminiscent of an older dial radio.

Account holders can check if they are due for an upgrade, and find out which version and plan will fit their budget.
