It's that time again, where we at Free App Friday headquarters take a closer look at some of the more basic apps out there that are worth your time. Not unlike a fine IPA, just because they're smaller servings, doesn't mean they lack a punch.
It's time to let all of you in on a little secret from Free App Friday Headquarters. Usually we keep our nose to the grindstone looking for first-rate apps that might not warrant a full review, but are worth your time. Sometimes, while waiting for clothes to tumble dry, the iTunes Store can reveal magic. Super Snack Time is such an app, and you'll want to drop in an extra quarter to make sure everything's nice and toasty.
The twelve apps of Christmas! Or the best apps of 2012 or something. It's the year end when we start getting best of lists, and here's at least two to tide you over until the next batch. Meanwhile, Twitter & Instagram break up -- is it forever? And more below the fold.
It's really heartening to see the tide turn back towards Mac game development since the launch of the Mac App Store, with big-budget blockbusters and familiar iOS apps alike coming to Mac screens everywhere. While paid games are in steady supply, it may be tougher to locate worthwhile free offerings amidst the loaded listings -- and sure enough, the selection isn't quite as robust as you'd expect from the iOS App Store. But give it time! Until then, we've rifled through the current selection and picked out 10 worthwhile offerings that cover a wide variety of genres (and attention spans).
There are so many games in the iTunes App Store that sometimes it's really hard to figure out what to download and what's worth playing. There's also the dilemma of the age old adage that if it isn't broken, there's no point in fixing it. And, well, so many game companies have already perfected the kind of games we're looking for, so why bother looking anywhere else? Well, I can answer this one for you: do the words "free" ring a bell?
If you wish you had a free alternative to popular games like Plants vs. Zombies and Bubble Bobble, you're in luck! I've found exactly what you're looking for. Maybe. Take a look for yourself after the cut and save a couple of bucks on all those big blockbuster games with these free alternatives. Because you can't spell "free" without the "f" from "fun", right? Glad we're all in accordance here.
