Watchtron is a clock that is designed in the style of the movie Tron. You can change the appearance of this unique looking clock, but there are other add-ons that you can buy for $0.99 each which are extra themes and even a built in theme editor. The graphic will show you the seconds (outer ring), minutes (middle ring), and hours (inner ring) just as long as you can read an analog looking clock. You can also change colors of the clock without paying anything extra for it, and you can even spin the rings with your finger. In order to get the tools to come up you need to tap the screen once and double tap the screen to reset the time.

Bauhaus Break is a game that is similar to Tetris, but with a bunch of other differences. You are matching patterns without rotating them. These patterns are matched by color, shape or fill stile. Before you begin the game you get a brief tutorial to help you out. In normal mode you have to create sets to to destroy the adjacent blocks that are pushed up from the grid every 8 turns you make. In challenge mode, you have to create the perfect sets in the shape, color, and style that are allowed in this mode where you are timed to make you go faster. In express mode you have to break as many blocks you can in 50 turns, and points are awarded for the blocks you have broken rather than the sets you create.
