iBearSoft’s personal finance apps for iOS and Mac, several of which are highly regarded and consistently among the top selling Finance apps on the App Store, are all on sale now for the upcoming US Thanksgiving holiday. Most iBear apps have dropped to $0.99, including Money for iPhone (was $9.99), Checkbook HD (universal) and Bills for iPad. The two exceptions are Money for iPad and Bills for Mac, both of which are $3.99 (previously at $9.99).

“Three for Free” is back and here are 3 apps/games that you can now download for free (for limited time):
AcePlayer - Much like the GoodPlayer (TMA Review) app, AcePlayer can play basically any video file format you throw at it (WMV, AVI, MKV, RMVB, RM, XVID, MP4, 3GP, MPG etc), meaning you no longer have to convert your movies and tv shows before uploading to your iDevice. The app has a built-in UPnP client so you can stream video from most UPnP/DLNA media servers.
Fragger - This casual catapult-type game is among the more popular titles on the iPhone and has been played on Miniclip.com as a free flash game over 100 million times. Simply use your finger to aim and launch grenades to kill all enemies throughout 340 levels and 11 different worlds. Game Center leaderboards lets you see just how good you are at tossing ‘em mini “pineapples”.
RuneMasterPuzzle - A fairly new and rather promising match 3 game, RuneMasterPuzzle allows blocks (or Rune Stones) to be swapped in 8 directions (horizontal, vertical, diagonal). The “Spirit” counter, which shows the number of total swaps remaining (it can be recharged), along with the various power ups and combo make this an intriguing prospect among the crowded match 3 genre.

Appigo’s Todo (TMA Review), one of the more robust task managers on the App Store, has just been updated to 5.0 and now supports iCloud sync. Todo already syncs with a number of services, including Todo Online, Dropbox, iCal, Toodledo.com and others. But with the latest update, keeping your tasks synced across Todo apps on the iPhone, iPad and Mac just got a whole lot easier. On the iDevice, it’s a matter of going into Settings, Synchronization, Service and tapping on the iCloud button. Assuming you’re already on iOS 5 and signed in on your device, the app requires no other data input from your end. You don’t even have to press a sync button – it all happens in the background. The free Todo Lite for the iPhone was also updated to include support for the iCloud.

The Google Search app has been updated and it’s now better than ever on the iPad. The new features make searching for what you want much more interactive and easier as well. Google Instant starts displaying results as you’re typing the search term; a slide-in pane lets you slide back and forth between browse pages and results; visual search history can be accessed by swiping right to reveal snapshots of pages you’ve visited (organized by search terms), and more. Here’s the full list of “What’s New” for the iPad:
After even the first few minutes of using Google Search on the iPad, the slide-in pane feature alone made it difficult for me to go back to Safari. The downside is that since it wasn’t designed to be a full fledged browser, the app doesn’t support tabbed browsing. Still, for day-to-day googlin’ on the iPad, the host of new features definitely makes this a keeper. Check out the video demo after this space.
Google, Google Search, – Free

Stem, a tech company specializing in gadgets and accessories for iOS devices, has launched the Time Command Mini, one of the smallest (and smartest looking I’ve seen) alarm clock docks for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. Aside from being able to playback music from your own library, the Mini can be used together with the free Stem:Connect app to offer a host of alarm based features. Users can set calendar-based alarms with repeat functionality, check out local weather info, and choose custom alarm tunes or music from your device. For added convenience, app-set alarms are automatically transferred from the iDevice to the Mini upon docking. There’s even a unique dock pivoting connector that supports iPhones or iPads regardless of whether they’re in a protective case or not (most cases are supported).
The Time Command Mini is available now at Apple retail stores (US & Canada) or it can be purchased directly from Stem. Full press release after the break.
