TiPb Forum Picks of the Week for March 3, 2010
That's right, we're moving TiPb Picks of the Week to the TiPb Forums so that you -- the community -- can help out our worn and weary staff recommend some great apps!
To kick things off, here's mine:
Plants vs. Zombies
Yes, PopCap has gone and gotten me again. I didn't think they would -- Zombies are usually Jeremy's thing -- but dang if this isn't fun and addictive. You plant plants, everything from pea shooters to sunflowers to cherry bombs, and they try to keep the zombies off your lawn and out of your house. The better you do, the harder it becomes.
I don't know what's more evil, zombies or the geniuses behind PopCap.
Give Plants vs. Zombies a try -- just don't blame me if you can't put it down (looking at you, Leanna!)

My pick of the week is
My-Cast Weather. In my quest for the "perfect" weather app, My-cast has come pretty close. It doesn't contain all the information that others (like the Weather Channel) includes, but it has a fair amount of data and has a really nice interface. If you want to go beyond the included weather app, give My-Cast a try!

My pick is
This little app lets you set up reminders that are sent to you as a text message. It's always bothered me that the native calendar app doesn't let you schedule reminders without actually scheduling an event. TextMinder has been a great alternative. It's been doing a great job of reminding me to take my prenatal vitamins!
Take note though that this app does send text messages so your standard text messaging charges apply.

Angry Birds is a castle destruction type game and it is ridiculously addicting! You basically slingshot birds into “castles” in order to destroy the green pigs within. The game has a different birds that have different abilities to destroy the structures. It will easily keep you entertained for hours on end.
