Cheerfish is so cute and colorful, there’s no way he won’t cheer you up. He swims along all on his own, but you can help him reach the stars by dragging your finger up and down the right side of the screen and releasing to leap out of the water. A direct hit on a star will earn maximum points while grazing one will earn just a few. The game includes a total of five worlds, 50 levels, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

You’ve never seen water slides like this before. Send Clyde sliding down them on his belly and help him outrun the crowds by timing his dives. Tap and hold to dive down the slopes, and release when the time is right to keep the momentum going. If you get stuck, tap furiously to get a turbo kickstart. The game includes four difficulty levels, three modes, and all kinds of trophies.

AudioStretch is an absolute breeze to use. It’s clutter-free interface allows you to quickly load any song or audio file from your library and get right to work. You’re able to adjust the speed in increments of 0.10 all of the way from -2.50x to 2.50x with just a tap. You’re also able to adjust the pitch range +/- 12 semitones. Tap on the speed range to set your song or audio file to zero speed. If you slide your finger across the waveform, you can scrub in a real-time. This part is actually a lot of fun when used in tandem with the pitch adjustment, allowing you to create some pretty funky sounds. All of your time-stretch and pitch-shifted files can be shared via email.
AudioStretch is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 48 ratings.
Bronko Blue is moody, atmospheric, and a whole lot of fun. Bronko rides the wind with his umbrella. It’s up to you to guide him up, under, and through obstacles by tapping on the screen. As you progress through the game, Bronko will gain new abilities like the ability to light his way and shoot down angry crows, which will make it a lot easier to collect all of those lost balls of wool!

We really like Night Sky 2 because of the relaxing stargazing environment it creates. You’re able to select from a handful of background sounds and effects before pointing your iDevice up at the sky. As you move your iDevice through the air you’ll see stars, planets, constellations, and satellites pass by in real-time. There’s also an option to view detailed cloud cover, temperature, wind speeds, and visibility. Night Sky 2 includes live data on moon phases, sun rise and sun set times, daylight duration, and sun elevation to keep stargazers informed.
Night Sky 2 is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 361 ratings.
