Good App Store Apps


Recommended Posts

Post here some good apps that you have downloaded that are really useful/fun/entertaining. Just put the name of the app, and reason why it's awesome!


I'll start it off


Cod4: . Awesome game. Obviously the best FPS on the app store. There are no other games like it


Mac Pilot: For those of you that do not like settings. This lets you edit lots of different things on your mac


Daisy disk, and iMemoryCleaner. Great for those of you that get clumped up hard drives, with little space. Daisy disk will show you what is taking up all of your memory. iMemory will get rid of annoying useless things in your memory.


Uberstrike. 2nd best FPS game on the app store. Very colorful game with an interesting money system


Virtual DJ Home: Very cool app that let's you mix music, and mess around with it.


Touchgrind: Very fun skateboarding app that let's you use your fingers as your feet to control the board.

I have a few of those apps.

When is there going to be an app for FA? I looked into it and it used to exist but doesn't anymore.


ip.board has an app to connect to the FA website I believe. But I don't think it is necessary.

I hear wonderful thing about Pixelmator as a photoshop style image editor (for MUCH MUCH less).

If iPhoto isn't cutting it anymore, Aperture is great (and reduced in price for the app store! was $199, now $79)


I also really like Pages, Keynote, and Numbers (as opposed to Word, Powerpoint, and Excel). They play nice with the Office formats, and I just like the interface better. Plus, at ~$20 each, cheaper than office.

Yea, Pages, Keynote, and Numbers are a great alternative to Word, Powerpoint, and excel because its more mac friendly, and its a very fun interface to use

I wasn't able to adopt the mac version of MS Office with Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, had to pass it by...Wish it felt freindly to work with but thats my take, obviously its workin for you but i use these programs all the time and i am sticking with Office for Mac.

Moom - utility app

similar to what you can do on Windows 7,

it allows you to easily move and zoom windows to predefined areas of the screen,

or to make them full-screen, using either the mouse or keyboard.


Just really useful when using several windows.
