69p App Store

From the father of Hipstamatic comes Swankolab, a slick journey through photochemistry which lets you mix and match different old school chemicals and processes to achieve funky photo effects. With a formula book to save your favourite recipes and a virtual mahogany box to store your supplies and prints, it's the ultimate app for shutterbug hipsters who want to go fully manual. Virtually that is.

Describe It

Mr Postman is a genius little app for people who want to write and send letters on the go without having to ever lick a stamp or seal an envelope. Simply type out your letter, address it, pay for postage via your card or Paypal and let Mr Postman do the rest. Tongue papercuts? Not anymore.

Shufflepuck Cantina

Shufflepuck Cantina brings the glorius fast-paced action of glass-shattering air hockey to your iDevice, with slick impressive 3D Retina Display visuals and plenty of achievements to unlock on your path to puck-commandeering glory.
