Quite a few different apps have gone on sale – or completely free – today and this week, including some big name games that many iPhone and iPad gamers are sure to be excited about.
The first of the big names is Infinity Blade II. That’s right, the sequel to the original Infinity Blade has gone on sale for $0.99, down from its normal $2.99. This game, for those unaware, is (as mentioned earlier) a sequel to the hugely popular Infinity Blade. I mean, just look at the name. It has a 4 1/2 star rating average for all released versions, and has a 5 star rating for the currently released version. Going through the game, you are in somewhat of a medieval setting, and the graphics are something hard to come by on iOS; they are simply remarkable. This game was shown off during the iPhone 4S announcement, and released later that year. I bought it release day, and love it, and I’m not even a big iOS gamer. If you’re looking for something that will take a while to get through, not just a sit-down-real-fast game, you will love this. If you are interested, head on over to the App Store now to get it for $0.99: Infinity Blade II.
If you are looking for an app to take time lapses, iLapse is a great app for doing so. Better yet? It’s just gone free in the App Store. Usually retailing for $1.99, the app is free today, so there’s nothing to lose in picking it up. Who knows, you might have the opportunity to take some pretty cool videos with this! Time lapse videos, of course. If you are wondering what in the world I mean when I keep saying “time lapse,” I’m referring to taking a lot of pictures spread out over a length of time, and then putting this pictures in a video that play sequentially very fast, forming a shortened video of however long you set the time lapse to be. This is how people show something that took 5 hours in 5 minutes. This app can shoot in different frame rates, different resolutions, and you can even save the finished product right to your camera roll. I am going to give this a try, and you should too. Why not? It’s free on the App Store here: iLapse.
3. vjay for iPhone and vjay for iPad – Free
From the people that make Djay, a once popular audio combining, and, well, DJ (get the name now?) application, comes “vjay”, an application that does the same thing, but for video. You can use this app to make as many music video mashups as your heart desires, and now you can do it for free. Want to use your own video? No problem, you can import from your camera roll or even use your devices camera to take video on-the-spot. There are also plenty of built in effects that you can apply to the videos, and make them something truly unique. Then when you are done, it supports output via HDMI/VGA on iPad and AirPlay for any of the supported devices. For the iPad version, you must have anything newer than iPad 2 (sorry original iPad owners), and for the iPhone version it is only compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPod touch 5th generation. Check it out here: vjay for iPhone and vjay for iPad.
