Discounts

Fruit Ninja

Fruit Ninja, an incredibly popular App Store title from Australian developer Halfbrick, is now the App Store’s free app of the week. Both the iPad optimised HD version and the regular iPhone version are completely free for this week only, so if you’ve never tried this excellent game, now is the time.

Nathan’s Pick

GIF

My app for this week is GIF Finder, an app that easily finds GIFs based on key words. It beats searching for GIFs on the internet, and best of all, the URLs can be copied to the clipboard for easy sharing. GIF Finder is free on the App Store (iOS Universal), and is really worth a look for a good laugh.

Frank’s Pick

My pick of the week is Epoch, a game based on the same engine as Infinity Blade. In the game, you’re a robot living in a post-apocalyptic environment and you must fight your adversaries in order to find out how the old world ended. It is quite a fun game to play, and it’s free to download for a limited time thanks to FreeAppADay. As always, you can find it in the App Store
