Most apps about apps are obsessed with freebies. Rather than cater to an obsessive's notion of thrift, Discovr Apps takes a more organic approach to broadening your handheld horizons. It won't tell you what's on sale, what's brand new, or what became of the missing e in its own title. Nor will it examine past purchases and fashion a list of tailored recommendations. What it does do, and with elegant simplicity, is use any application as the starting point for an elaborate spider web of interrelated App Store offerings.
It's no secret that Apple products go hand-in-hand with education. In fact, for many Generation Xers, an Apple was the first computer ever seen in their classroom (shout out to the IIe!). With regular discounts for teachers and students, Apple products are the perfect back to school gift. And once you get back to school, time to hit the books and keep up that GPA. And here's some apps to help you do just that.
Adobe announced its next iOS app today at Photoshop World, called Adobe Carousel. This cross-platform app allows users to access their whole photo libraries on an iPad, iPhone, and Mac, make edits that sync automatically, and share those photos with family and friends.

Long languished in comparative obscurity over its more commercially attractive namesake, War of the Lions isn’t concerned with JRPG tropes -- instead it’s a labyrinthine design of political drama, familial politics, and intrigue that just happens to have a touch of Square’s marquee role-playing series embedded within.
Any computer task—even one as enjoyable as rockin’ out to some tunes—can get a little dull. Enter MiniTune, a desktop remote app for iTunes. With it, you can control music playback with a little extra flair while adding some cool features to your musical routine.
Apple's Photos app is functional enough, but lacking in features. Photo Gallery+ promises to give you greater control over how you manage and share your precious photographs and home movies -- although it comes with its own set of limitations.
On Labor Day weekend, it's time for the lucky among us to...not work. For many of us this means shutting the lids on our MacBooks and sleeping our iMacs, but in case you kick back at your Mac, we found some sales on Mac games and fun-time apps that you might want to check out...
...along with our usual roundup of reduced-price iPhone and iPad apps, too. Who loves ya, baby? (Hint: We do.)
If Rampage and Metal Slug produced an unholy offspring, it might resemble something like Destructopus: Total Rampage. The game’s presentation is very telling of its personality: a double-bass-fueled metal song plays over the intro while a cartoonish silhouette wreaks havoc on the ruins of a city in the background, with an animation style that’s close to squigglevision.
