iOS App of the Week: Prison Life RPG

Prison Life RPG is the type of title hardcore gamers say they want for iOS devices but ignore because it looks like a freemium game disguised as a premium title. First let me say that the game features no in-app purchases or timers. All 100 playable prisoners and items in the game can be unlocked without spending any additional real world money. This is the type of game that people who hate freemium titles should support and it is worth every penny if you enjoy simulation / survival titles.

iOS App of the Week: CARROT Hunger - Talking Calorie Counter

If Abby Lee Miller were an iPhone app she would be CARROT Hunger -- the calorie counter from hell. For those who do not know, CARROT is an A.I. construct that made its debut as a "to-do list with a personality," and since has morphed into an alarm for lazy meat bags and a "judgmental fitness overlord." CARROT's latest form is a not-so-friendly calorie counter, and it just may be the best calorie counter ever created.

CARROT Hunger allows you to keep track of your daily calories consumed by turning your iOS device into an easy to use food database and barcode scanner, but what makes CARROT great is her constant witty verbal punishment. For example, when you open the app, CARROT will greet you with sayings like, "Hopefully you are here to record some exercise." Things get really interesting when you dare to go over your recommended daily calories which are assigned to you when you set up the app. This is when CARROT really brings the kick ass by sounding alarms, threatening to post your crimes on Twitter and killing your avatar. CARROT never seems to run out of things to say, and will even attempt blackmail by offering you the chance to to pay for bribes.
