We know there are a ton of weather apps available, but we’re really enjoying this latest addition, CARROT Weather. Its developer touts this unique weather app as “an eerily accurate weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecast. There are secret locations to unlock. And also evil penguins.” With a description like that, as well as dialogue, characters and scenery changes, we think it’s worth the $2.99 price. Get local, up-to-the minute forecasts, or look at the weather a week ahead. CARROT provides all the usual weather data, like a “feels like” temperature, humidity, visibility, etc., but does so with an entertaining twist. Cost: $2.99.
Mr. Jump is one of the latest games to feature a jumping character who has to leap over gaps and crevasses. We’ve just started playing, but we’ve already realized how tricky this game can be … which is half the fun! With a dozen super-hard levels and another dozen on the way at the end of April, we bet you’ll be as addicted as we are in no time. Mr. Jump features simple, colorful graphics. In-app purchases are available, including advertisement removal. Cost: Free.
