Don't-Miss iPods Stories

Green Screen Studio for iPhone

This app, which looks to transform your mobile photos by adding in new backgrounds, falls short. Many features just don't work very well, and things feel half-finished.

Umbrella Today? for iPhone

You won't get a lot of satellite imagery and sophisticated weather information with Umbrella Today? The app aims to simply answer the question posed by its name -- will you need an umbrella today?

South Park Mega Millionaire for iPhone

South Park Mega Millionaire is a hilarious iPhone game if you appreciate the Comedy Central show's crude sense of humor.

Random Play for iPhone

This app takes a visual approach to shuffling your music, displaying up to 12 album covers for randomly selected songs in the music library stored on your iPhone or iPod touch. It's a nice upgrade over the shuffle feature, but it's limited by the app's inability to run in the background.

Driver for iPhone

In Driver, you play an undercover cop trying to infiltrate the criminal underground. Ironically, the majority of the game is spent engaging in all sorts of illegal activities.

QuickVoice2Text Email for iPhone

QuickVoice2Text is an excellent recorder capable of capturing high-quality sound for long periods of time. But its chief selling point -- the ability to translate your recordings into text which you can e-mail -- is distressingly hit-and-miss.

Onslaught from Space for iPhone
