SkyDrive, Microsoft’s answer to the popular online storage service Dropbox, is now available for the iPhone. For Yahoo and Google users not familiar, SkyDrive let’s you store all your files in the cloud and all that’s required is a free Microsoft Live ID. Unlike Dropbox’s free option, SkyDrive gives you a whooping 25GB of storage space for all your digital files.
Existing SkyDrive users will no doubt appreciate being able to access their files now with the iPhone app. If you don’t have an account and would like to take advantage of the generous cloud storage space, you can sign up for one here.

Accessories maker Griffin Technology has teamed up with Nashville based Third Man Records to create one of the more unique iPhone cases around. Dubbed the The Third Man 45, the iPhone 4S accessory is made from a genuine 7" vinyl record, which has been custom-cut into a protective case.
The Third Man 45 Case sells for $29.99 and comes in three available colors: White, Yellow and Black. Additionally, a separate interchangeable Vinyl Insert 3 pack – inspired by the bands The White Stripes (white), The Raconteurs (black) and The Dead Weather (yellow) — can be purchased for $19.99. If you’re tired of the same old cases for your iPhone 4S, this vinyl case from Griffin is well worth a look. Check out the video on how the case is made and full press release after the break.

Microsoft’s OneNote app for iPhone, released earlier this year, has finally been released for the iPad. Similar to the popular Evernote, OneNote lets you create and store notes in the cloud, or more specifically, Microsoft’s SkyDrive. Using the app, you can create searchable notes with text, images and bullets and checkboxes – great for drafting up quick todo lists. OneNote for iPad is free to download and use, though you’ll need to have a Microsoft Live ID (also free to create if you don’t already have one) and there’s a limit of 500 notes you can create and edit. If you wish to continue using the mobile app after hitting that number, you can upgrade to unlimited use for a one time fee of $14.99.

Adding to our Apps Gone Free roundup yesterday, two more noteworthy titles have dropped to $0: Spy Mouse, an excellent casual puzzler from Firemint, and Evertales, a platfrom action game brought to you by the developers of Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD.
SPY mouse - “Embark on a journey of epic proportions from the makers of Flight Control and Real Racing – over two years in the making. Agent Squeak *is* SPY mouse, a super-secret operative serving the needs of mice everywhere. Can the world’s smallest hero prevail in one of iPhone’s biggest games? His fate’s in your hands!”
Evertales - “Once upon time, there was a tale of mighty heroes, protectors of the realm, and the saviors of many damsels in distress. This…is not that tale. This is a tale of unlikely Heroes. Embark on journeys of not-so-epic proportions with Sir Jorgin, the noble knight past his prime; Arwick, the ladies man and elf rogue; and Taragon, wize, old, and somewhat senile wizard. Welcome….to Evertales.”
Be sure to grab these freebies on the App Store while the offer’s still good!

One of the few comic book characters to weather the video game curse fairly well is Batman, and the Arkham series has really stepped up the Caped Crusader's game, so to speak. Now we're lucky to get an iOS installment of the franchise called Batman Arkham City Lockdown where you get to face off with many of the Dark Knight's iconic foes, as well as the special adversary Deathstroke. Role playing fans that don't own a Nintendo system of some sort can finally sink their teeth into Chrono Trigger, a tale that spans many time frames and has been considered one of the best examples of the genre to appear on any console. Behemoth has finally brought their Alien Hominid franchise to iOS devices via Alien Hominid: PDA Games, and while it might not be what fans expect visually, it certainly packs a lot of fun into its simplicity. And if you're looking for something completely different there's Playing History: The Plague, a game that turns a great disaster of the 14th century into an adventure game. Sounds a bit bizarre, but it might both entertain and educate you at the same time.
