Ready for your summer holiday? Who isn’t? Researching, planning, and booking can, for many, be as much fun as the actual vacation itself.

Turns out your iPhone or iPad can be your best travel companion, getting you into places and out of jams. Follow along and you’ll be well on your way to the best vacation ever.

1-Bit Ninja may look like a simple retro throwback, and it is. But it's also much more than that. It's not just your average, run-of-the-mill Mario homage. It also has some really neat ideas. The announcement video shows off the ability to swipe the screen to turn the camera and make the 2D level into a 3D level.

Some of the contraptions in the release video are pretty impressive.
Imagine buying a Ferrari only to find that it’s not that great on pavement but kinda fun in the dirt. iCamera HDR is only a couple bucks, but might make you feel the same way after you take it for a test drive.
