iPad Today 45: Our Summer Game Roundup, Podcaster vs. Downcast, Woodstock Nostalgia, Notetaker HD!

Hosts

Today's theme is...... GAMES FOR SUMMER!

A FEW VIEWER SUGGESTED GAMES

  • Susan suggests: "Trade Nations", it's GREAT! It has nice graphics, music, and cute "peeps". Best of all it is relaxing since there are no time limits with missions and it is social but also in a very relaxing way."
  • Dragos suggests: "Bug Chucker". You throw bugs at metallic spheres who are trying to get to the bugs' Great Tree.While the concept seems pretty simple, there are stars, planets and black holes who affect your bugs' path due to gravity, which makes it very challenging. I have played about 10 levels so far and it's quite addictive!"

COMING MAY 17


SO, THAT HAPPENED

  • Conde Nast goes in-app subs, but the numbers don't add up:

    • iPad app for a year (47 issues) = $59.99
    • at newyorker.com at any "subscribe" link= $69.99 for everything + "digital access"

ASK LEO

"I own an iPhone and iPad and have many Apps. I just purchased an ipad2 for my wife and need some advice. Should I set up a separate user (new Acct) for my wife with iTunes. If I do what about all of my downloads or all of the "too many" apps that I have already purchased? Keep up the great work and thanks again for all of your help

P.S. Good luck with the new studio

APP CAP AWARD

  • sarah's app: On the Way to Woodstock
    • Kirin Bellubbi, Founder, says: We've written all of the narrative in the app - we have a small editorial team of ex-music-bloggers that write passionately about these subjects. The photos have been licensed from award winning photographer Barry Levine and a lot of hand curation (not algorithms) choose the videos from you tube and the complementary Wikipedia links. There's a ton of art we also created just for this app - you can find some of it as wallpapers on the app landing page on our site... Kiran"
