1. Hunger Games: Girl on Fire

Hunger Games: Girl on Fire - Lions Gate Films Inc.

DEFEND KATNISS AGAINST THE CAPITOL! From the award-winning creators of indie game sensation CANABALT comes the *official* FREE teaser game for the movie event of the year — THE HUNGER GAMES — and the #2 app across the entire App Store!

In THE HUNGER GAMES: GIRL ON FIRE, you’ll play as KATNISS EVERDEEN, the young heroine from District 12, whose sharp instincts are matched only by her even sharper bow-and-arrow shot.

With just weeks to go before the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss ventures past the fence and into the woods beyond District 12 to hunt for food for her starving family… only to run right into a swarm of Capitol-created TRACKER JACKER wasps!

Help Katniss find her way back home, while taking down the tracker jackers with your bow and arrow — but be careful once you get to District 12… The Capitol’s hovercrafts may come looking for you!

May the odds be ever in your favor…

***FEATURES***
Guide Katniss’s escape with simple touch controls:
– TAP on Tracker Jackers to shoot them down
– SWIPE UP to leap up into the tree tops and avoid enemy fire
– SWIPE DOWN to leap back down to the ground

Compete for high scores against friends on GameCenter!

Presented by Lionsgate and created by an indie game dream-team including Adam Saltsman, Danny Baranowsky and Paul Veer!

***ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES***
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
more…

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 26 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following. It has spent more than 160 consecutive weeks/more than three consecutive years to date on The NYT bestseller list since its publication in September 2008, and has also appeared consistently on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. A Lionsgate presentation, of a Color Force / Lionsgate production, a Gary Ross film.

 

 

 

 

2. TuneBot

TuneBot - Cal Stach

TuneBot is a Music Library Updater. It reads your music library and tells you when an artist has a new release with a push notification.

Our web based server does all the work to free up your devices’ memory.

As well as displaying the artists full discography aside from what you have, it’s also a Music Discovery Tool for similar artists.
It’s also Airplay enabled to preview over your home stereo speakers, and a link to iTunes for music purchases.

YouTube Video Link Walkthrough – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Obl7xkjJ_30

A note for users with large libraries on your phone;
It will take a few minutes to process libraries over 3000 songs, and it may not. Feedback so far has been very different and I would love yours as well, my email is at the bottom.

A note for iTunes Match Users;
If you have a large library, it will take several minutes to process it, just like iTunes Match did for you. Currently this process happens more often than it should and we are working on making it a “first time it opens” and a manual operation. It will be optimized to read your FULL library once and cashe it until you ask TuneBot to read it again because of you have your updated music library. Thanks for your patience.
Also, while TuneBot can “see” your entire music library and keep you updated on those artists, just like the native Music app for iPhone you can only listen to it if you have it downloaded to your device. But you can still listen to Suggested Music.

Coming Soon;
– Selected Artist Concert Listings Near You pushed to your phone
– Make Playlists on the fly
– Select or deselect specific artists for updates
– Manually process the library instead of automatically

A Question for users; I have the option of asking TuneBot to pull cover art from the web only, or, asking it to use your cover art you already have in your library. The first option results in a lot more cover art, but it is not of high quality and it sometimes uses incorrect art. The second option ends up using the beautiful retina display to it’s fullest, providing you have high quality artwork in your library, but it also means that some of the artwork just won’t be there.
You actually have three options here; 1) pull from the web, 2)pull from your library and 3)be given the choice within the app as an option.
I’d love to hear your input.
