• Realism: the most accurate app ever for simulating aged videotape recordings
• The most beautiful tape noise, static and tracking distortion the world has ever seen
• On-screen date and time graphics--you know, when cameras actually did that
• Fake the on-screen date so people think you're way younger--or older--than you really are
• Phony zoom lens feature dramatically enhances the cheese factor
• Control the effect using your finger or by shaking your device during recording
• Don't think we forgot to make things sound bad--we didn't
• Easily share videos from within the app or through Camera Roll
• Built-in clip viewer for playing back, deleting and sharing clips
• Widescreen recording option (but would you REALLY want to use it?)

• HD video recording on iPhone 4s and newer devices (1080p requires iPhone 5 or better)
Fantasy Football DraftMetrics: $0.99 for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad (Requires iOS 6.0 or later) Rated 4+
We neglected to mention this app in our fantasy football app preview published last week. DraftMetrics promises to " offer more insight" into your draft than other popular fantasy apps on the market. The app uses projections from Fantasy Football Analytics instead of the standard VBD algorithm. The app offers most of the standard features found on other fantasy football apps, but it does not support auction drafts (You can use the app to keep track of drafted players in an auction league, but it does not offer cash value based suggestions).
• Recommended positions for each round allow you to select the top player for each round.
• View your targeted players' projected points, chance of availability, and chance of being the best fit for your team.
• Easily input live picks from your draft by searching for players.
• Fully customizable scoring for your league; DraftMetrics factors your league's scoring into the algorithm.
• View multiple rounds in advance of recommended positions and players.
• Select your league's number of teams and your pick number.
• Ability to update DraftMetric's projections to factor in injuries, suspensions, and more.
