Order Up!! To Go is a Fun and Addictive Free iPhone Game

Order Up!! To Go is an addictive management game which allows you to build your own restaurant empire. Like most cooking games you must plan your menu, manage your money and cook your customer's favorite dishes in a timely manner. Before each round you must stock your kitchen with the right amount of food and spices to serve all your customers for that day. The tricky part is you don't know what your customers will order, or how they will want their food prepared. The idea is not to overstock your restaurant while having enough food on hand to feed everyone. Failing to do so will result in wasted or low profits which you will need for upgrades and to hire help in the future.

Free iPhone Games

Order Up isn't all planning menus and buying spices, you must use various swiping motions to chop, stir and cut ingredients to prepare various dishes for your customers. The controls are slightly more challenging than other click and point management games, but thankfully they don't muck up the experience.

iPhone Mobile Terminal or Prompt for SSH Access

Whether your iPhone is jailbroken or not, a decent SSH client can be useful to access other machines on the go. Jailbreakers can use an SSH app to browse and manipulate files directly on their Phones from the iOS command prompt. A popular app, Mobile Terminal serves this purpose but can't be installed directly from Cydia in iOS 4 or 5.

Prompt iPhone terminal application

There is a workaround to install Mobile Terminal which is great because it's free. If you're looking for an easier alternative, Prompt comes to us from the App Store and can be installed on jailbroken or non-jailbroken iPhones.

New iPhone App Makes Contacting Friends and Family Easier

Developer Jeff Broderick has come up with an easy way to call someone by turning their contact info into an app icon on your iPhone's home screen. The QuickContact web app eliminates the need for you to search through your contact list for frequently called friends and family. Just add the contact info of a person you call frequently, and QuickContact will create a shortcut for them on your home screen.

iPhone Apps

You can choose from 15 pre-made app icons or upload your own for a simple one-touch messaging solution. The app requires access to your device's Settings and that you enter the information for all of your contacts. Broderick says the process is safe and no information is saved, but use it at your own risk.
