+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Freeze!, an app from indie developer Andreas von Lepel and FrozenGunGames, is a great physics-based game known for its gorgeous visual appearance. The game’s mechanics and gameplay style set it apart from the majority of iOS games, and its visuals are delightfully grayscale and creepy. But the app has received many content updates since it was first released, and now another world is available for your puzzle solving pleasure.
The latest update to Freeze! brings the game’s fourth world, which packs many new fun and beautiful-looking levels and challenges. But this update also brings a new in-app purchase. While previously available in-app purchases have allowed players to unlock each world (1-4) for $0.99 each, the game’s latest update adds the option for players to unlock all worlds (2, 3, and 4) for the same price: $0.99.
You can get Freeze! on the App Store for free.
MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition includes updated properties which are far more expensive than those in the classic game. It takes some getting used to not having Boardwalk and Ventura, for example, but Instanbul and London serve as suitable substitues. The game loads quickly, looks great, and generally plays great. Includes modes for one player, multiple players by passing the iPhone around, as well as wifi multi-play (on the same router).

Google, strangely quiet on the iPhone thus far, has finally released an application that provides a little interest, Google Earth for the iPhone. Oddly, Google Earth has yet to be released for Google’s own Android platform.
Google Earth for the iPhone is a pretty well rounded application including geo-tagged photos and wikipedia article integration, a cool tilt your phone to change the 3D view interface called auto-tilt, and uses the same imagery as the desktop application. In quick testing we found Google Earth to be a little slower than Earthscape but a little more finished feeling.
Previously the only application offered by Google for the iPhone was their Google Mobile App. This application was little more than a dedicated search engine front end.
This release also marks some competition to one of our favorite apps, Earthscape. It will be interesting to see what happens with this app now that it has competition.
Our suggestion is to just try both and use the one you like best.
