Start your day off right with Morning, rekindle childhood gaming memories with R.B.I. Baseball 14′ and let Dropbox create a Carousel of photos. So let’s fire up some weaponized ice cream and check out the the apps of the week for April 12th, 2014.
Morning – Weather, To-Do, News and more
Mornings are never easy, even after your second cup of coffee. Morning, now available on the iPhone and iPod touch, helps round-up all the information you need to start your day. Using a clean, sharp looking UI, Morning is like a swiss-army knife of things that matter to you.
Start your day off right with news, weather and your to-do list. All in one place, with up to 8 customizable panels that can help you get organized, all in one app. You can add weather, reminders, commute, news, calendar, stocks, countdown and date/time.
Morning comes with over 15 themes and there are even more available using in-app purchases.
R.B.I. Baseball 14′
When it comes to classic sports gaming, R.B.I. Baseball ranks up there with NHL Hockey 94′, both which struck a chord with gamers. Major League Baseball is rebooting the game and making it available on a number of platforms including iOS. The developers have taken modern graphics and mixed them with easy-to-use controls that helped make it a hit back in the day.
The end result is simple, addicting gameplay with excellent graphics. If you are looking for a simple casual baseball gaming experience, R.B.I. Baseball is just that. It will also cater to those who want to re-live their childhood memories of an all-time classic. Based on early reviews, it’s not the home run we would have liked, but it is a solid triple.
Download R.B.I. Baseball 14 – $4.99
Robots Love Ice Cream
If there were awards given out for the most awesome app title ever, it would be no contest. But this game offers so much more than its cool title. It’s an arcade style shooter that is certainly unique. You’re armed with ‘weaponized ice cream’, with different flavors offering new ways to blast robots to eternity. As you defeat the even robots, you collect ‘sprinkletonium’.
Robots Love Ice Cream will send you to new worlds and new planets as you strive to save humanity’s ice cream. I fight that battle nightly with my wife. If you love ice cream (and who doesn’t) and arcade-style shooters, then it’s time to score some sprinkletonium.
Download Robots Love Ice Cream – $0.99 (Limited time pricing)
Carousel by Dropbox
Carousel becomes the much needed gallery for customers who call Dropbox their home for storing their most important memories. The Carousel gallery is made up of photos stored on Dropbox and locally on your device. As you take new photos, the app can automatically upload them for safe-keeping. Carousel has no limits (other than your subscription package), making it a great way to always have access to your life, in photos.

Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff
This game takes your favorite characters from Quahog (and not so favorite characters, you Meg) and take on crazy quests to keep the town safe from pirates, evil chickens and other invasions. It’s free to play and you can unlock all sorts of hilarious outfits like Mermaid Peter, Bikini-clad Quagmire and more.
It wouldn’t be Family Guy without jokes and the the developers worked in collaboration with the writers of the show for exclusive bits.
If you are a fan of the show, this game is worth checking out. Reviews in the App Store have been positive netting a 4/5 star rating thus far. Being a free app, it does have an extensive array of claim/coin in-app purchases, which has annoyed a fair share of users. Do people really pay $99.99 for a tank of clams?
A wildly fun bike game, Trials Frontier brings some amazing physics gameplay to the iPhone and iPad. It’s brought to you by RedLynx, the same crew responsible for the highly popular trail series on PC, Xbox 360 and elsewhere. They spent years working on this touch-based version, which includes more than 250 missions, 70 unique tracks and a cast of characters.
Here are what people are saying about Tribals Frontier:
“I was really looking forward to the release date of this game and I was not let down…the graphics are fantastic and the game really fun to play.”
“This game really captures the feel of the series and has controls that actually work very well. Check this one out, it deserves your time.”
“This game is brilliant. I’ve waited years for a Trials game on iOS and it’s finally here.”
If your that guy or gal who has been waiting for trails, strap on your helmet and hit the tracks.
