This week on the Free Apps Roundup: It’s been a week since the iPad mini was released. I’m loving mine, and new apps to put on it can only make things better. Curiosity shares almost nothing in common with NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory, but it is an interesting new game for iOS. My Little Pony released a new game, and Proximiant aims to help you keep track of your spending. And just like always, there are a bunch of limited time freebies.

The Top Three:

  • Curiosity – What’s inside the cube – “Join thousands of people worldwide to simultaneously chip away at a giant cube to discover the life-changing secret buried inside.” The secret inside is basically guaranteed to be disappointing with a setup like that, but you kinda want to know anyway, right?
  • My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Saddle up for adventure with Twilight Sparkle and friends. Nightmare Moon has been set free and has been spreading night across Ponyville. Help free Ponyville from her grasp.
  • Proximiant – Keep track of all of your spending with this receipt digitizing app. All you have to do is take a picture of your receipt and this app stores it digitally online. You can even use these receipts to generate expense reports. Plus, there are many more features coming soon.


  • Storm the Train – A side-scrolling trigger-happy shooting game.
  • Knightly Adventure – A cross-platform game in the world of Loreland. Customize your character, battle pesky monsters and then upgrade your armor and weapons.

Free for a limited time:

  • Parkbud – Where’d you park? You would know if you had this app.
  • Listo – A list making app.
  • Rockmate – Turn your iPad into a complete music studio where you can compose, play, record and produce your songs alone or with up to 4 musicians on a single iPad.
  • Janryumon PLUS – A 3D Mahjong game.
  • Janryumon for iPad – The same for iPad.
  • Spirits – Guid spirits on their journey home from under the fallen leaves towards the sky.
  • Hairy Balls – A puzzle game that involves rolling balls toward colored mushrooms.

  • KOTOMON – Control the hero, Kotomon, to catch friendly monsters and shoot enemy monsters.
