Throughout history there have been far too many people who have instilled fear with killing sprees.  Looking back on these monsters with curiosity would take an especially morbid soul, so the announcement of an iOS app dedicated to the study of Jack The Ripper is equally shocking.  Wow, I guess there really is an app for everyone.

Over a century after the monster’s killing spree came to an end, Jack the Ripper still somehow remains a household name.  For this very reason, the new app Ripperpedia: The Jack the Ripper Who’s Who is hoping to cut through much of the urban legend surrounding this historic yet deplorable character.  Chock-full of first hand accounts, police data, even photos and videos from the actual crime scenes, the app is sure to be an interesting download for those with an eye for history.

Just be careful, I wouldn’t want to be caught dead (pun intended – Ed.)with an piece of software like this in my download history.  Call me crazy, but I hear spouses frown upon the study of serial killers.

Phosphor Games’ visually-stunning, Unreal Engine-powered game The Dark Meadow has gotten a new free-to-play version, Dark Meadow: The Pact. This is the same game as the full Dark Meadow released last October, but now designed to be free-to-play, with gold and Sun coins available for in-app purchase, that can be spent on equipment, health kits, and bombs. Originally, the full version of the game was going to just transition from its current $5.99 price to free-to-play, but there was user backlash to this move. However, the plan was apparently for those who had purchased the game to get the Premium pack of items, which disables ads, grants 5 health kits, 13 bombs, 15,000 gold, 150 Sun coins, and disables ads for free. Now, the two versions are split, with the Premium pack gifted to those who buy the $5.99 standalone version, though the free version also offers this pack as a $5.99 in-app purchase.

However, a new business model is not all that comes with the game. There are new levels and a new boss to fight, new weapons to use, a map to help explore the world, and new “Fast Travel” warps so players don’t have to restart from the beginning of the game. Plus, it’s now compatible with the iPad Retina Display. The 1.1 update with these new features and The Pact version are both available now.

The built in Voice Memos app does its best to help those who need a voice recording app. It is pretty limited in its execution, however, and frequently lacks functionality that would make it essential for the likes of journalists and voiceover artists in need of recording an audition. This is precisely where iAudition springs into action.

As the name suggests, iAudition enables users to record and edit audio files wherever they are. One of the neatest functions is the ability to send completed files as MP3s directly to anyone via email or FTP site. Such functionality immediately makes iAudition a much faster app than those that rely on a PC connection to convert and send files.

Controls are simple yet effective with the ability to record multiple takes and cut and paste segments together. It all works just right, removing all the effort for the user. There’s even the ability to perform background recording sessions so that the user can read something from the iOS device while recording at the same time.

iAudition is out now priced at $5.99.

It seems like more and more people are taking self defense classes these days. It’s a practical skill, sadly, but I also think some of them do it because it’s a lot of work and can burn off calories and tone muscles like nobody’s business. But unless someone’s nine, it can be hard to make time for lessons X number of times a week. Sometimes people just can’t make it to the dojo.

This is why we have Self Defense for All, courtesy of YawaraJitsu. This “interactive self-defense course” sticks to the basics with a chronicle of many different techniques to learn. Each one also includes 3D video (featuring models with MASSIVE HANDS) that can be viewed from multiple angles to help users to fully understand the motions.

I want to stress that I don’t believe this app will truly teach anyone to be a self defense master. Something like that requires a senei with years of experience to point out inconsistencies in forms and other students to toss around so as to get an idea for what the moves actually feel like. But I do think it’s a useful tool for students that want to keep practicing off the mat. Self Defense for All is available on the App store right now in English, Spanish and Dutch for $5.99.
