How many sick days do I have left? Do I have enough personal time saved up to make that doctor’s appointment? I really want to get away for a couple of weeks, but I’m not sure I have enough vacation time for it.
We’ve all had these problems. Well with the magic of technological innovation and smart thinking, we can use Time Off to keep track of it all. And I do mean “it all.” Sick days, vacation days, personal days – anything that ultimately equates to paid days off – can be documented. It can keep track of multiple jobs, display accrued time in hours or days, and account for rollover. But perhaps the most impressive (and ingenious) feature is that users can send time-off requests to their employers via email from within the app itself.
I know it seems a little silly but I honestly find the concept behind Time Off to be incredibly exciting. And I think anyone who’s dealt with any (or all) of the issues I’ve mentioned about will probably agree with me.
Fans of enjoyable time management game Cooking Dash will have noticed, in recent times, the addition of the ‘HSN Cooks with Emeril’ venue, incorporating celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse and HSN, the Home Shopping Network. Such an addition gave players special discounts on real-life Emeril kitchenware.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, such a promotion has gone one step further. By signing up from within the game, players can receive a free bread pudding recipe by Emeril Lagasse, as well as a coupon for 15% off their entire next purchase at HSN.com. Players can find the recipe inside the aforementioned ‘HSN Cooks with Emeril’ restaurant venue.
Cooking Dash, and its Deluxe sibling, is already a fantastic example of the time management genre, easily bringing countless hours of entertainment. The romantic touch makes it all the more worthwhile to give a play. It’s an ideal inclusion for such a cookery focused title.

Order Up! To Go is a solid time-management game for those looking to become the next "Top Chef." Despite the freemium version's ad-stricken gameplay, there's a lot of addictive potential to be unlocked.

Managing time is the key to achieving a lot of things in a short amount of time. It’s also nowhere near as easy to do as it should be. Fortunately there are apps out there to simplify life with HeadFinder being one of the latest and brightest of the bunch.
With three quick and easy taps, users can keep track of their appointments and errands through HeadFinder. Using a notepad/calendar style appearance, it’s easy to see exactly what needs doing at any one time. Keeping track of the timings for each day means that the app is ideal for anything from important work meetings to simply remembering to feed a pet or spend time checking personal email. Everything can be assigned a time limit so life can be made as simple or as complicated as the user wants.
No matter how complex life gets though, HeadFinder remains simple to use with at most two or three taps adjusting everything and taking the hassle out of time management.
It’s out now, priced at $0.99.
Since I currently live in what can be considered “The City,” I haven’t had much need for a car in the past 6+ years. However, I still remember how extensive a trip to the gas station could be: pump gas, check the oil levels, squeegee the windshield, check tire pressure, buy snacks and whatever else the occasion called for. Now I can relive that experience any time I want, minus the snacks (*tear*), thanks to Treat Yourself Apps’ Panic At The Pump.
Panic At The Pump is a hectic, multitasking, time management game that tosses players into the roll of an over-worked gas station attendant. Cars file in one-by-one, each one with a laundry list of demands, and it’s up to the player to take care of it all. They have to be quick and efficient, however, because the clock is always ticking down. Soon it won’t be enough to simply fill the tank; they’ll have to pump gas while refilling oil and putting air in the tires.
Weirdos like me who sometimes miss the full automotive experience, or even just the curious, can check out Panic At The Pump in the App Store right now for free.
Coming to the app store later this month is a game that features enchanted sausages and magic tomatoes. Seriously. Clearly any complaints about lack of originality on the app store have been taken to heart by developers Milkman Games as I’ve certainly never played a game with enchanted sausages before!
Players will control OmnomBot, a robot who doesn’t want to eat his vegetables. Broccoli actually makes his Meat Circuits overload, which is never a good thing! So it’s down to the player to keep things running smoothly by feeding OmnomBot the right food such as the aforementioned Enchanted Sausage and the Feisty Tomato. Plus there’s an appearance by OmnomBot’s vegan cousin, Ted.
It sounds bizarre and it almost certainly will be. Gameplay is a simple one touch affair with players setting out to beat high scores gained by themselves and Game Center friends.
It’s set for release in late August – take a look at the YouTube trailer in the mean time.
