Summer vacation is right around the corner and if you are anything like me then you would benefit from an app to help get things organized and packed. I typically only travel once or twice a year and so I’m not particularly good at getting ready for it, but this summer I am taking a bigger trip to Beijing and I am definitely going to need something to help me stay organized as I prepare.

Aero Birdies

At first I couldn’t imagine worse timing for a new physics based bird game, given that it comes in the shadow of the flappy revolution, but once I gave Aero Birdies a try I knew there was something genius in releasing it now.

LEGO Legends of CHIMA now available on iPad

It is also the newest reason I wish Apple would put more children management tools into iOS which could set gaming time limits and I could probably use that feature for my Digg problem.

It seems that developers are pushing the concept of IAPs by making it easy to spend a lot of money to keep gameplay alive.
