4TunesTarot


4TunesTarot
Price: Free
Your musical card of the day from 4tunestarot.com.

Requires (free) registration; that's because the card drawn for you is just for you; it's not the same one for everyone for that day.

Check the site out first?

Balls!


Balls!
Price: 1.99
It's not a game, it's a toy.

It's just a screenful of colorful balls that roll around as you tilt your iphone/ipod.

They also react to acceleration and momentum as you ride in a car. (Warning: don't play with it if you are the driver!)

If blinky is selected, when blinky balls touch, they make a new ball.

If touch is selected, when you touch the screen it creates a new ball.

When two identical balls touch, they annihilate each other.

You can adjust the floatiness of the balls.

If you crowd yourself out you can reset.

Intuition Decision Maker


Intuition Decision Maker
Price: .99
Based on an intution training exercise. Ask a Yes/No question; two random abstract images will appear. Each will be randomly assigned to "yes" or "no" (behind the scenes.) You choose the image that most appeals to you, and then it will be revealed whether that was the "yes" or "no" image.

You can also test your intuition by seeing how many times you guess correctly which is the yes (or no) image.

To do the original exercise, you had to have another person handle the yes/no randomization, usually by writing "yes" and "no" on slips of paper, which would be put face down. Then you would be told to visualize and describe an object (usually a box, I have no idea why) on top of each slip of paper. Then you would choose the one you liked best, at which point you'd turn over that slip of paper to reveal the answer.

This is a lot easier!

Pengcognito


Pengcognito
Price: Free
Grab the latest strips from pengcognito.com (the weekly cartoon set in an alternate universe where penguins rule!) Requires internet connection.

Balls Kids


Balls Kids
Price: .99
A version of the Balls! app that's more kid-friendly.

No preferences, no pause button, just pure entertainment.

Tilt to roll the balls, touch the screen to add a ball, touch a ball to blow it up. (If two like balls touch, they still blow up, though.)

Fun in the car (hold it flat and watch the balls react to acceleration, braking and turns.) (NOT for the driver!)

More fun sound effects; the chimes are still from a pentatonic scale, so it will still sound musical.

It's not just for kids - it's also a nice stress-reliever for any age.

(Note: I am not responsible if your kid drools on your iphone/ipod or tries to eat it! You decide how young is too young!)

Cosmic Ordering


Cosmic Ordering
Price: FREE
Cosmic ordering is a playful approach to manifesting and the Law of Attraction. It's a lot easier to get what you want when you think of the universe as a ginormous mail order company - just order it, and forget it. Obsessing over manifestation makes it not work - that's why parking spaces are easy and soul mates, castles and perfect jobs are tough. A cosmic ordering approach, on the other hand, encourages the light touch and sense of play that makes the big stuff easy, too.

Dream Signs


Dream Signs
Price: Free
Learn to have lucid dreams!

This app shows short hints, tips, reminders, tests and thought experiments all designed to help you become lucid.

The hints and tips are in these categories:
- Dream Sign: something to look for in your environment or recent memory that could be a clue that you're dreaming.
- Dream Tip: a tip for improving your chances of lucid dreaming
- Dream Action: an action to perform to see if you're dreaming (something that usually works in a dream but not in waking reality, or vice-versa)
- Dream To-Do: suggestions of what to do when you're lucid. It helps to have an idea in mind that you can try as soon as you notice you're dreaming

Touch or shake for a random sign/action/tip to help you gain lucidity.

Pro version (available via $0.99 USD in-app upgrade):
An in-app upgrade lets you use this app as a periodic state tester. Push (iOS3) and local (iOS4 only) notifications allow you to remind yourself to see if you are dreaming. Notifications can be requested from once a day to once an hour. Choose from several notification sounds and several messages (or create your own message.)

Why more than one sounds? If you get used to doing a reality check when you get the notification, when you hear the sound in your dream, it may help you to notice you are dreaming.

OK, to get an app in the iTunes app store, you need to be a registered developer. I am. If you are, and you just want to outsource some work, OK.

Or, you may have a great idea for an app but don't know how to write one and/or don't want to pay the fee and do the paperwork to be a developer. In that case, we could collaborate on an app and split the profits.

Or, you can use a free iPhone app to drive traffic to a site or sell your stuff. In that case, you'd pay me to write the app and I'd put it in the app store.
