Apps for May 2, 2012

HUD Homes

HUD Homes is a home searching app that will find HUD homes that are available in your current area or in any other area by searching for the city and state or zip code. You can use this app to find what you are looking for, and if you are interested you can enter in your information and find out information on how to obtain the property.

There are issues with this app as it was being tested. Firstly, when you select something like either searching for a home or finding the homes closest to you that are in foreclosure, you don’t know if you’ve pressed the right thing since nothing lights up stating what you have done as well as the length of time it takes to load the page.

Ultimate Gin Rummy

Ultimate Gin Rummy is a gin rummy card game that you earn and even bet chips playing a match with a live opponent or with a friend you have challenged to beat you. There is even a tutorial the will teach you the rules as well as mastering of the game. When played on the iPad, it is optimized for  immersive game play, and you can keep track of your scores and others on the leader boards.

There is a big problem with this game. It took a while to even get to play a game with anyone that was online, but once that was done it was a very good game to play. The ads can be ignored, but it would be nice to actually have to pay say $0.99 to remove them.

Price: Free (Ad supported)

Version discovered: 1.0.2

Requires: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad; iOS 3.2 and up

Download size: 28.4 MB
