If you’re a fan of chatting with friends and family through Facebook, developer SHAPE Services has a treat for you, and just in time for the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. -- IM+ Video is a new free app offering unrestricted video and voice calls to and from your iPhone through Facebook.
Ever wonder how iOS developers get some of the inspiration for their apps? In the case of Elite Platinum’s latest Singing Daisies app, the influence came from the heart and mind of the developer’s nine-year-old daughter, who he credits with coming up with the whole idea in the first place.
Let's hope the censors don't get a hold of Reckless Getaway. Where Grand Theft Auto caught a lot of flack for its wanton vehicular violence, you still had the option to play as a conscientious gangster with a heart of gold if you desired. This is not the case with Reckless Getaway, a top-down driving game where you're rewarded for murdering innocent civilians. Despite the dark subject matter it's portrayed as brightly colored, cartoon carnage in this cathartic and addictive on-the-road rampage.
If there's one confession you have to make to yourself, it's this: one of the primary reasons you bought your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad was to play extreme sports games on it. With that in mind comes DMBX - Mountain Biking, the latest in a series of extreme sports games from Randerline.
If you’re a die-hard fan of the video game Frogger, you’ve probably realized by now that 2011 marks the a milestone for the hopping little frog, who turns 30 this year.

As rumors swirl that Netflix is planning to go beyond North America, Hulu beats them to the punch by launching in Japan, although the service is following the Netflix playbook on at least one front, with higher prices. Meanwhile, a new update to the existing iOS app allows HDMI output on the iPad 2 -- as long as you’re down with standard definition, that is.
There is another new GPS app in the App Store today, as Garmin unveiled Garmin StreetPilot onDemand for the iPhone (and 3G enabled iPads). The app delivers Garmin walking or driving navigation to you iPhone, including current maps of the United States and Canada. Now, for the first time though, you can get a Garmin on your iPhone with a monthly subscription instead of having to shell out a big one-time app purchase.
StreetPilot onDemand includes a thirty day subscription to Garmin's Premium Navigation with Traffic. This subscription is pretty key here; without it, you can still access the maps and get direction, but not turn-by-turn directions or many other robust features. Compared to buying a new GPS device or one of the more expensive GPS apps in the App Store, though, the monthly fee is a steal.
No matter how violently devoted you are to Apple, sooner or later, someone will slip into your circle of friends that just doesn't get it.

Despite your insurmountable difference of opinion, there's no reason why you still can't interact on a digital level. We've put together a list of 10 apps that will treat your hardware -- no matter whether it's rocking iOS or Android -- as equals, letting you play, chat, and work together.
