App Cache Cleaner gives you a strongly worded liability message that says it isn't responsible for anything it deletes. If that doesn't scare you off, the app quickly scans all of your files and tells you exactly how much space the cache is taking up. You can organize the list in ascending or descending order and exempt any application from the cleaning process. Once you hit "Clean," the app wipes your cache instantly. It didn't even take a second during testing, even when we used the app's handy one-touch widget. App Cache Cleaner takes … Read more
Castle Clash blends elements of tower defense, resource building, and other real-time strategy games for a unique, exciting experience.

Handwriter, at first glance, looks like another photo editor, but with numerous custom filters and themes and a handful of premade backgrounds for image creation, it goes above and beyond most standard free editors. The theme of this app is handwritten messages on image backgrounds and there are a lot of options to choose from, making the app fun to use and a lot deeper than you're likely used to seeing in the overcrowded photo editing category on the App Store.
When you open Handwriter for the first time, the app will give you a very basic, very quick … Read more
iDay Counter allows you to create customized countdown lists for birthdays, anniversaries, and any other date you can think of in a very stripped-down interface. There are no added features here, no tools to visualize the countdown, and no calendar to show days of the week or anything else other than the number of days until an event occurs. For this reason, the app serves a very limited purpose, but it serves it well.
When you open iDay Counter you can do one thing -- add a new date. Click the "Add" button and you must choose a … Read more
iImage Filters is a technically sound app that suffers mostly from a lack of direction, a messy interface, and an overabundance of choices. From the home screen menu, with its dozens of filters, to the actual filtering process, which is not always clearly explained, the app suffers repeatedly from difficulty of use and too many features.
When you open the app, you'll find a list of many photo filters. Some of them are quite unique and look good when implemented, but there is a problem: You cannot see what they will look like from this screen. You must click … Read more
Moments provides a streamlined, elementary version of sticky-noting for your iOS device, allowing you to tag and save specific moments or other custom notes on your iOS device directly to a board.

For many people this will be too limiting, but by focusing on just those two things, the app provides a valuable interface for many users.
When you open Moments, you'll see everything the app can do in a single glance. Tap the "+" button in … Read more
