Adult Swim Games isn't the only company putting its wares on sale today. The developer of the popular freemium title Pocket Frogs has announced that its entire catalogue of games will be available for free. It's uncertain how long the sale will last.

Last week we took a sneak peak at Gameloft's latest high-profile iPhone experience, Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden. Now, after an some enigmatic pre-release hype, Sacred Odyssey is ready for public consumption. We won't know for sure until the review comes in, but this game looks very promising.

If there was ever a relevant moment in the original Star Wars trilogy, it would have been during the Empire Strikes Back when an ancient Jedi Master named Yoda calmly stated that "Size matters not." Yoda then proceeded to lift a multi-ton spaceship out of a muddy bog and placed it exactly where he wanted it using nothing more than the force. With that inspirational moment in mind, we think of Sony's recent unveiling of the much-anticipated, next-generation handheld console, currently codenamed the "Next Generation Portable" -- or "iPod touch killer" in some circles.

The often overlooked, but nonetheless fantastic, Baseball Superstars 2011 has officially gone "free" on the app store. Or as the app-saavy like to call it, "freemium."

We've got high expectations. Not only do we want to be able to use our phones to make calls and send texts, but we also want internet access, games, apps that get us to social media, a music player as well as online music. We want to watch movies and read books and take pictures and -- whew, our little phone is starting to get a little crowded. And pretty much the same story goes for the iPad even with its bigger memory. Streaming music can take some of the load off, but if we could move a few of those episodes of Mad Men off our iOS devices, that sure would free up some space.
Google’s iOS app invasion continues this week, this time with Google Shopper, which helps shoppers find information on products they’re interested in buying by cover art, barcode, voice or text search.
We can talk about productivity on the iPhone all day, but we all know that what people really want are games for their iOS devices. You can only check your email and update Facebook so often before you need to take down some zombies.
Lucky for you and other zombie-hating homo sapiens, we got a pile of Appular apps we're ready to give away.
