Apps for May 19, 2012


Fotoffiti will change your photos into something that looks like a work of art if you spray painted it on a wall like you would if you actually did graffiti. You can either take a photo with your camera or you can select from your photo library. You can crop or zoom in your photo to make the graffiti look like it should. You have your choice of 11 different colors to paint over what looks like a template that was taken from your photo. You also have 8 walls you can choose from to paint on. You can even add an aging effect to your graffiti as well as control over the graffiti shadow color, and you can edit your images with your own doodles using a brush and eraser. Sharing your fotoffiti can be done either by email, upload to Facebook or Twitter, save it to your device’s photo album, or print it to your WiFi printer.

Cleaner – Remove Multiple Contacts

Cleaner – Remove Multiple Contacts will help you clean up your address book in the event of multiple entries as well as alert you of other things. You can remove a group of contacts with just one click. You can also find out which entries have multiple names, phone numbers and email addresses and quickly remove them by highlighting (or checking) the ones you want to remove from your device. You can also find entries that have no name, phone number or email address. You can also find entries with a common field which are birthday date, name, job title, and email domain. This also integrates with your device’s address book, messages app, and mail app.

In the testing of this app, it seems that there was a duplicate phone entry even though the name was different. The removal of the duplicate entry was very quick and without any problems.

Circus Atari

Circus Atari is a modern twist to the classic game from the Atari 2600.  Having said that this game is nothing like the original which a reviewer stated that as such. The basics of the game is that  you launch your clown in the air while guiding him in the air by tilting your device. You get to pop balloons the higher you go while you collect coins an power-ups along the way. You land in barrels and jump on springboards to help you climb up to the top. There are safety nets that deploy to help break your fall. You also unlock other characters that you can play in the game. This game also has OpenFeint and Game Center for achievements and leaderboards.

Price: Free

Version discovered: 1.00

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