iFunny :)

iFunny :) is an app that has random funny photos that have been posted on the internet that you can enjoy for free using this app. You will see some funny photos pop up periodically at the top of the screen, but you can also access other content through the features below. These categories include Featured, Popular, Collective (which is the entire collection that are available at that time), Commented, Liked, and Create New. When you pull up one of those items, you will get whatever is flagged for that so each one will bring you different results. According to the app’s page that they will be giving this app away free for the first 5000 users. It seems that this might not be true since the app does have ads without the way of paying for the app to unlock it.

Price: Free (Ad supported)

Version discovered: 2.1.3

Requires: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad; iOS 3.0 and up

Crossword Plus

Crossword Plus is a crossword puzzle app that would be great for any crossword enthusiast. These puzzles were created by British editors so it would be great if you have an understanding of British English even though they do welcome the people that know American English, but it might be tricky for someone who doesn’t understand how some things are spelled in England. This app includes 15 high-quality crossword puzzles, and easy-to-use, intuitive interface, clues are shown right in the puzzle grid, 3 difficulty levels which are easy, normal, and difficult, zoom function for easier reading, help functions like solve a  letter, solve word, and mark error, and you set your best time and percentage solved statistics.

This app just became free since it was previously $1.99, but they do have an in-app purchase of more puzzles for the same price as the app used to be. Also this app is completely ad-free so you won’t be bombarded with ads every time you want to do a crossword puzzle.

Price: Free

Version discovered: 1.0

Requires: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad; iOS 3.0 and up

Download size: 23.6 MB

    The crossword is one of those games designed for the much smaller screen, and not for the ipad. You do have a “2x” option… which stretches and pixelates the image. There are quite a few of these apps which they claim are for iPad, but it is false advertising.

    Ditto also many apps which claim “FREE, today only, get it while you can, etc.” But then you find out it is the free (ie. demo) “version.” Idea is to get you in there in hope you will then go on to buy the full version.
