Five For Friday: Week Of April 20

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 20th, 2012

Easter is an increasingly distant memory and we're well and truly into Spring for the Northern Hemisphere. Hopefully, in turn, these five apps will keep a spring in readers' step across the weekend and beyond. It's a distinctly light hearted bunch.

MyCityWay Now
Arguably the most useful app in the line up, MyCityWay Now promises a personalized snapshot of the city of New York, instantly giving users information on everything from the best nightlife, restaurants and even the best places to park. Live traffic cameras and transit updates should stop users getting stuck in traffic, also. 72 more cities are set to be added to the app in future updates.

Saving Private Sheep 2
A sequel to fun physics puzzler, Saving Private Sheep, Saving Private Sheep 2 offers more sheep versus fox fun. Use the catapult to fling sheep at the foxes across 66 lvels of obstacles and fun. There's a level editor for creative types to spend extra time with.

Sid Meier's Pirates!
Originally an iPad only release, Sid Meier's Pirates! is now available for the iPhone. It's not an Universal app, unfortunately, but if the iPad version is anything to go by, this will be a great conversion of a fantastic action strategy game. Indulge the pirate in you and set sail on one of 27 ships.

Shark Dash
Shark Dash might look like yet another cute physics puzzler but it's a fun concept: taking control of bathtub toys. Yes, seriously. Sharkee and his group of toy sharks have to fend off the evil rubber duckies while saving Sally, Sharkee's girlfriend. For the player, this means a fun romp through 96 levels of simple yet addictive gameplay.

Marvel's The Avengers: Iron Man – MARK VII
Comic book and movie fans might have already noticed that there's the little matter of the new The Avengers film coming out very soon. So, what better way to get excited than with MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS: IRON MAN – MARK VII? It's an interactive comic book telling the tale of Tony Stark/Iron Man's mission to upgrade his armor. 15+ pages explain all, alongside a memorable soundtrack and plenty of interactive touches.
