While the United States Space Shuttle fleet may be retired, you can still relive the challenge of landing the craft in F-Sim Space Shuttle. The flight simulator allows you to fly the Space Shuttle from de-orbit to landing at either Edwards Air Force Base or Kennedy Space Center by using the gyroscope in your iPhone or iPad. It is one of the more challenging simulators you will face and also one of the most beautiful.
With the latest update to the simulator, you now have the ability to save and record your replays within the game. This
allows you in turn to share them via email, messaging, YouTube or import the video into an editing app such as iMove. Depending on your device, the video can be rendered as high as 1080P so it is not compromising quality for functionality.
In order to record the videos you must be running at least iOS 5 on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. For 1080P level of recordings, you will need to be using an iPhone 4S or 5, iPad 2nd Generation or newer and iPod Touch 5th Generation or newer.
F-Sim Space Shuttle is $4.99 in the App Store and it is a universal app for iOS devices. As always the update is free for current owners of the app.
If you are one of the few people on the planet who haven’t purchased Angry Birds then today is your lucky day! The original version of the game is now free in the App Store. The change came over the weekend and covers both the iPhone version as well as the iPad HD version of the game.
Angry Birds made its debut in December 2009 and has been purchased over 12 million times by Apple iPhone, iPod Touch
and iPad owners since that time. There have been many spinoffs of the game including Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars but the original is, well, kinda a classic now.
The only change from the original release back in 2009 is the addition of Power Ups, a feature that made its debut in one of the updates of 2011 to the game. All of the original levels are there though and nothing has been left out.
Equally as important, this is NOT a lite version or an ad supported version of the game. It is the original now free. This is different than some games which have moved to a “freemium” model instead of pay games and are ad supported and you get to pay-to-play.
If you missed out on all the fun, use the links below to download your copy to your iOS device today. After you play a few rounds, you’ll understand why Angry Birds is so popular – and so addictive.
There are popular games then there is Temple Run 2. The highly stylised sequel to Temple Run high the 20 million download mark in just its first week. That’s an astonishing number considering that the app was officially released on January 17th. While it is no where near the 170 million downloads that the original Temple Run has seen, clearly the springboard has been loaded for the sequel to pass the original.
In the Press Release that Imangi Studios posted yesterday, they highlight some amazing numbers for Temple Run 2.
In under one week, Temple Run 2 has accumulated over 210 million sessions, which garners a combined time of over 1,775 years of gameplay.
Temple Run 2 is far more challenging than the original Temple Run with twisting running trails, new obstacles and of
course new rewards for success. The object of the game however remains the same: Run, jump and slide as far as you can, collecting as many coins as you can before falling or being caught by the mutant ape running behind you. Sounds simple but get ready for an addictive and challenging game! In this sequel you can also collect gems which help you make purchases within the app and level up your character. Like the original there are power-ups throughout the game that allow you to be invisible, give you boost speed when running or become a coin magnet. If you have played Temple Run you will find Temple Run 2 more challenging but also much more visually appealing. The Imangi Studios team have done a great of rendering in this game.
Temple Run 2 is a free download and is a universal app for both iPhone and iPad. There are several In-App purchases available that range from .99 Cents to $19.99 each. In-App purchases are not required to play Temple Run 2 but they do help you get further into the game faster.

Angry Birds Space is .99 Cents in the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch while the HD version for iPad is $1.99. The update is available on both versions.
