We’ve put together a list of the all the best iPhone and iPad apps that got buzzed about this week.
We have an app for making some quick cash from your old electronics, an app to take short and sweet video/pictures, and even an app that lets you see where the twin towers used to be via augmented reality.
And finally, Skype built an iPad app for video and audio chat.
110 Stories is an augmented reality app that shows you where the twin towers used to be when you hold up your iPhone. Once you see them, you can input your story from September 11th and share it with others.
According to the founder, 110 Stories is 'way more than something that allows you to share memories of September 11. It was built to give us the ability to 'see' the towers as they were for 30 years prior to that day, and to reflect on the range of memories it stirs in each of us.'
100 Stories just met its goal on Kickstarter of raising $25,000, and an app is on the way.
Price: a few weeks away, free
We checked out GLMPS earlier this week, an amazing new photo/video sharing app.
The way it works is that you open up GLMPS, take a picture, and then the app grabs the previous 5 seconds of video before the picture was taken. In this way, you not only get the picture, but you get the context and sounds of the scene it was taken in.
We have no idea what took them so long, but Skype for iPad is finally here--now you can video chat and makes calls with people from around the world straight from your iPad (audio only) and iPad 2 (audio and video).
There's a brand new interface, complete with instant messaging, buddy lists, video chat features, and more. It's a must-download app.
Measures HD provides easy access to common conversions like mass, speed, pressure, energy, fuel consumption, temperature, length, and even shirt size.
Wikipedia search is built in, as is a calculator, settings for how many figures you want to round to, the ability to save favourite conversions, and more.
Price: $1.99 (on sale right now for 30% off)
Puerto Rico is the classic strategy board game, now on your iPad. You'll need three or more to play, but it can be a ton of fun.
It's a 'Settlers of Catan' style economic board game, where you grow crops, trade goods, and own land to win.
If you don't have the time to set up an eBay account and auction of your old electronics, eBay Instant Sale can help you out.
Plug in what you want to sell, and eBay will make an offer for it right then and there, based on the device's condition and worth on the market. The app partners with AllTechWholesale, which buys your electronic and sells it again on its own terms.
Rdio is one of our favourite music subscription and streaming services, and now it has a great iPad app to go along with the iPhone app.
Rdio's iPad app is a fully fledged iPod app replacement, featuring access to over 10 million songs, artist radio, a social feed of what your friends are listening to, and more.
In Requiem, you play as a boy running away from a nightmare inside a dream.
What makes Requiem unique is that for the entire game, you're running forward, looking out of the boy's eyes. You'll have to dodge, dip, and jump over obstacles to escape.
Editions pulls content from the entire AOL blog network, and personalizes it to create a news feed just for you.
Instead of a conventional vertically oriented news feed, however, Editions turns your news feed into a magazine like Flipboard does.
Final Fantasy Tactics for the original Playstation was an instant classic, selling over two million copies.
Now, it's made its way to the iPad and iPhone. You play as a team of mages, dragoons, priests, and thieves, waging a tactical and strategic war on screen. It's a whole lot of fun, and requires some thinking along the way.
Apparently, the app is a bit clunky at its current stage, but developer Square Enix has been very responsive with app updates so there should be an update soon.
