iPad App of the Week: Red Herring

Red Herring iPad game

iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Red Herring, an incredibly fun and challenging word game / logic puzzle game that throws in some trivia elements too. If you’ve been following this site recently you won’t find this to be a shocking pick – as I’ve already mentioned Red Herring a couple of times here, and noted that it’s made by the developers of the superb 7 Little Words game.

I was fortunate enough to have a pre-release version of the game for about 10 days before it hit the App Store, and I can tell you this is every bit as great a game as 7 Little Words.

iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device.

They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Find the City. It’s touted as a ‘fun and educational geography game, for kids of all ages’ and it does a great job living up that.

The game’s title lets you know what it’s all about – find a specific city, which can be anywhere in the world, as quickly as you can. You scroll around and pinch and zoom as needed until you have the target city in your crosshairs – then tap on a big button to indicate you’ve found it. The closer in you get to the city and the faster you find it, the more points you get.

They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Ancient Battle: Alexander, a very cool new strategy war game from Hunted Cow Studios. Hunted Cow have been bringing some excellent war games to the iPad for years now. I did a review of the Civil War: 1863 iPad game back in 2012.

I enjoyed the heck out of that game and I’ve happily bought and played a Civil War follow-up and a couple of World War II tank games they’ve released over the last couple years. Ancient Battle: Alexander is their latest release and covers one of the great military leaders of ancient times – Alexander the Great.

They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Ziner – RSS Reader that believes in simplicity, supports Feedly. That’s way too long a name, so I’ll call it Ziner RSS Reader or just Ziner for the remainder of this post.

Ziner is a very nice, clean RSS reader app for the iPad and for users of Feedly. That last part is important to note – because a Feedly account is required to use the app. That’s not a worry for me as Feedly has been my favorite RSS service by far ever since the demise of Google Reader.
