This week on the Free Apps Roundup: Are you looking for some new games to play? If you like Angry Birds, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy Bombcats. It’s a physics puzzler with explosive cats. It’s no weirder than Angry Birds. If you’re looking for something else, then you’ll be happy to see all of the limited time freebie games available this week. Also, UPS released an official iPad app and Google released Hangouts for iOS. It’s a good week.
The Top Three Free Apps:
- Bombcats – Blow the cage, save the kitten! Words to live by…almost. This is Chillingo’s latest game. In it, there are seven cut but volatile felines that are ready to explode into action to save their fury friends. There are over 190 levels and 42 goals to keep your furiously flicking these exploding cats across your screen. Sounds a little like some displeased avians, doesn’t it?
- UPS for iPad – Now you can finally track your UPS packages on your iPad via an official UPS app. You can manage your deliveries, nickname shipments, or just check out where it is on a map. The app also makes it easy to find UPS locations close by, reroute or reschedule delivers and more.
- Hangouts – Now you can join the hangout with Google’s Hangouts app for iOS. With it, you can have group conversations easily. Send photos, emoji, text, or start a video call with up to 10 friends. Truth be told, they don’t even need to be your friends. The best part is that hangouts work on computers, and now your phone or tablet device too.

You can also watch some shows on demand, including Modern Family, Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and more. Starting in July, you’ll need to verify that you pay for cable, so ABC doesn’t really want to give you anything for free.
