Apps Of The Week: Disneyland, Pac

It is the weekend again. But, not everyone will have the joy of sitting on the porch with friends, cracking a cold one and a joke as the hours slowly tick by. Some of us will be pulling weeds in the hot sun, or driving hundreds of miles to visit family, or even working.

No matter what you are doing this weekend, try to make time for relaxing. If you are looking for some new apps and games, check out our list below. You might find just what you need to make your weekend perfect.

If you are the type of gamer that, somewhere in your past (or possibly present), sat around a table with a group of friends and played such games as Dungeons and Dragons, this is the kind of game you will enjoy. It harkens back to a real tabletop experience, complete with character sheets, maps, and more. There is even a simulated set of gamer’s dice for you to roll. As you explore a handcrafted dungeon, you will find loot cards that can give you special items, stronger armor, and even better weapons. Using your newly collected swag, you will be ready to fight off the strange beings you will encounter when entering an unknown room. This game is available for $3.99.

I’ve been waiting a long time for this app to return to the App Store. There has been an official Disney World app for a while now, but the West Coast theme park hasn’t had one in years. With this official app, users can log into their Disney account to scan tickets or annual passes, check park hours and ride closures, and check current wait times for rides throughout the park. You can also find out where your favorite characters will be set up for meeting, search the map for restaurants, and even find out where the closest bathroom is. This app is available for free.

Just when you thought you knew everything about the pellet-munching half circle, a new game comes out that throws it all out of whack. In this endless arcade maze, players control Pac-Man as he chomps though neon mazes that twist and turn. In addition to being chased by ghosts, you are followed by the ever-present, infamous 256 Glitch as it tries to tear your coding apart. There are also special power ups (beyond the power pellets that let you eat ghosts) like bombs, lasers, and stealth mode. While the basic rules of Pac-Man still apply, this is one arcade classic that will really push your limits. This game is available for free.

Maybe you are the type of person that just can’t stand classic games like Pac-Man getting a lot of changes. Instead of trying to convince yourself that the game is terrible, even though you haven’t played it, try a whole new game that has a pellet-munching traveler that eats his way through mazes. In this game, players are constantly being chased by a red foe. However, the only way to get him off your back is to switch the bridge at just the right moment, so he is stuck on the other side of the maze. Hopefully, it will be a side you’ve already gobbled all of the pellets on. This game is available for free.

LinkedIn Lookup

Having hundreds of work related contacts for LinkedIn doesn’t really do you any good if it takes forever to find them. With this new contacts app from the official business-networking site, you can get the information you need about the people that will be in your next meeting. You can also look up contacts by skill, title, and more. Of course, the app makes it possible for you to call, text, or email your contacts with one tap. This app is available for free.

Spiral Ride

If you loved Impossible Road and just can’t get enough of the bang-your-head-against-a-wall action, then you might want to take a moment to absorb this game. You don’t tilt to stay on track. However, you must tap the screen whenever the arrows approach in order to switch lanes and avoid being thrown off into the abyss. Along the way, you will collect cubes that add to your score. Don’t be mistaken. It is not going to be easy. You’ve been warned. This game is available for free.

App Picks Of The Week: Ustream For Ipad, Tumblita, Taskrabbit

Every week iDownloadblog brings a roundup of awesome apps for you to check out and enjoy. We try to vary our picks, but a lot of these apps usually come from the App Store. If an interesting web or jailbreak app catches our eye, we’ll include that in our picks, too.

This week, we’ve got three App Store apps that all serve very different purposes. Here’s this week’s picks!

Ustream for iPad

Ustream has finally updated its iPhone-only app to also support for the iPad. With Ustream on the iPad, you can watch and follow your favorite channels, as well as broadcast straight from the iPad itself! If you’re looking for a free, online streaming solution on the iPad, Ustream’s universal app may be just what you need.

The app also supports AirPlay and social network integration for sharing your activity. Ustream on the iPad is a nice experience, and we recommend downloading the app for the free in the App Store.


If you use the blogging/social network site Tumblr, then you may be familiar with its official iPhone app. There’s a new Tumblr app for the iPhone and iPad on the block, and she’s called Tumblita.

While most will probably prefer Tumblr’s own app for the iPhone, Tumblita on the iPad is really nice app for Tumblr users. Previously, you’d have to check Tumblr’s web interface on the iPad to see your feed and post content, but Tumblita lets you do all that inside a full-featured iPad app.  Some of Tumblita’s perks include support for multiple accounts, excellent customization for posting content from the iPad, support for services like Instapaper, and a streamlined viewing window for your Tumblr feed.

Tumblita has a lot of really cool features and an interesting look, but I have a feeling that some may not like the way you have to browse through content from other blogs. You’ll just have to download Tumblita yourself and be the judge. It’s available as a universal app for $2.99 in the App Store.

Task Rabbit

Task Rabbit is definitely one of the more creative productivity apps we’ve encountered in the App Store. The idea of Task Rabbit is that other people do your chores for you. The app ties into a collaborative service that allows you to post a task you don’t really want to do (ex: go to the grocery), along with how much you’re willing to pay to get it done. Ideally, other users will then respond and complete that task for you.

We’re a little skeptical of Task Rabbit, but the idea sounds awesome. Instead of having to take out the trash yourself, why not have someone do it for you for $5? People looking for a job are called “Rabbits,” and task categories include Cleaning, Donations, Shopping, Food Delivery, Cleaning, Donations, Delivery and Something Else.

Be cautious if you decide to give this app a try. You never know what kind of “Rabbit” you could get to do your chores for you. Task Rabbit is available for free in the App Store.

That’s it for this week’s picks! Let us know what you think of these apps. Better yet, what cool apps have you downloaded recently?

This Week’s Top Stories: Airpods Pro, 16

Apple this week officially released the new AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro feature Active Noise Cancellation as well as Transparency mode. The new in-ear design is also more versatile, with Apple including three sets of ear tips in the box. You get five hours of battery life, and over 24 hours with the included charging case. AirPods Pro are available now for $249.

9to5Mac on Wednesday discovered an asset in macOS 10.15.1 that shows a close look at the Touch Bar and Touch ID layout for the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro. In the image, you can see that the Touch ID button – which also serves as the power button – is separated from the rest of the Touch Bar. Read our full coverage here.

9to5Mac also reported this week that Apple is planning the “AirTag” name for its Tile-like item trackers. Read more on that here.

On Friday, Apple TV+ officially debuted to the public. Apple TV+ is launching with a library of nine titles, with a few more being released over the coming weeks. To watch Apple TV+, open the TV app on your device and look for the TV+ banner. From there, you can sign up for the service, and redeem your 1-year free trial if you’re eligible for it.

This week marked earnings week for Apple, with the company reporting its results for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2023. For the fourth quarter of 2023, Apple reported revenue of $64 billion and profit of $13.7 billion. The earnings release also included news about Apple Card: starting later this year, Apple Card users will be able to finance iPhone purchases at 0 percent interest for 24 months.

Last but not least, Apple released iOS 13.2 to the public on Monday. The update includes the new Deep Fusion camera technology for iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, new emoji, and more. There are new Siri privacy settings as well, for giving users more control over what data they share with Apple.

These and the rest of this week’s top stories below.
