This post is first in a series about iPhone apps I enjoy. This is less about being on the cutting edge of technology and more the equivalent of peeking in someone else’s medicine cabinet. Electronic voyeuristic curiosity! I’d love to hear what fun apps you enjoy in the comments.
Cat Piano – this not only does regular piano noises but it also makes a variety cat meows that’s mighty entertaining. Although this app has like five different cat meow settings it really only boils down to two – nice-ish sounding meows and then an array of pissed-off Hellcats. This is a lot of fun until it’s not. But what an amusing three minutes you shall have!
Kitty Caller – a totally unnecessary waste of money that is totally worth it. Kitty Caller gives you the option of dialing your calls from several different kitten-approved screens. My inner twelve year old squeeeed and shit Lisa Frank-themed bricks when I found this. Magical.
Doodle Jump – this game is adorable but unfortunately I haven’t seen a whole lot of it. It’s a platform game wherein your character (a delightfully cute little Doodle) jumps from platform to platform avoiding the nasty hovering aliens that knock them from the sky. It’s a fun game but here’s the thing: I almost always die immediately. Like, as soon as I start the game, I die. I think my Doodle is suicidal. I am horrible at it and no amount of practice seems to make a difference. I’m so bad that my name for this game is a Sad Face. Some boys in the library took pity on me and played my game till I got a score of 20,000 points so the score screen would no longer say:
HIGH SCORE FOR :( = 5
Unblock Me – I am totally addicted to this puzzle game. If you enjoy puzzle games at all this is the perfect one to relax to. I’ve gotten several people hooked on this simple yet challenging game.
Bejeweled 2 – I’m a fan of this updated version which, according to the background graphics, you play on Mars. HARDCORE.
Peggle – Oh I heart Peggle. This is a puzzle game that is a virtual billiards of sorts. To know Peggle is to love Peggle. My favorite special attack is the Magical Owl.
Words with Friends – Turn-based scrabble with friends. Super addictive! I’ve never played scrabble before so this is a magical new frontier for me. I’m still learning so I’ll play with anyone. Find me! My name is exlibris. I usually play around 8ish PST because that’s when I give Isobel her pacha. She drinks her bottle and cuddles in my arms while I play and it’s pretty much the best part of my day.
