No doubt one of the more common uses of the iPad is to take notes during a business meeting or class/lecture. Readdle, makers of the popular ReaddleDocs and PDF Expert apps, has just released Remarks - a productivity tool that lets you jot notes (with keyboard or handwriting), draw sketches, and even annotate PDF files.

ARDefender (TMA Review), one of the more unique games for the iPhone, is now free for a limited time. Based on a technology developer int13 have called “Vision Based Augmented Reality”, ARDefender plays like a top-down castle defense shooter with an augmented reality twist. By pointing your iDevice’s camera at the accompanying pdf file, enemies come to life on your kitchen table, work desk and just about anywhere you can think of. Also free is the slingshot puzzle game Hungribles, brought you to by the devs who recently released Unstoppable Gorg for the iPad. Lots more freebies after the break, though as always, the price drops are only good for a limited time.

Out of all my university courses, my least favourite was probably mechanical drawing. You know, where you have to meticulously prepare a technical image of an object to scale according to all the rules and regulations. I've had little problems understanding how it should look like, but doing it neatly – let’s just say that it didn’t always go according to plan. I've even had dreams about the sketches, though they were more like nightmares. And funnily enough, those drawings in my dreams looked almost exactly like Blueprint 3D.

Sometimes I fear that a particular genre will start to get old, especially when the App Store gets littered with games from that genre. The physics puzzler is one such genre that comes to mind, but thankfully Greedy Penguins isn't the game to make that fear come true. This cute puzzle game about feeding some hungry aquatic birds can be challenging, but it is also satisfying and often quite entertaining. Control is a bit troublesome, which I have a feeling is due to the small iPod Touch screen, but overall the playing experience has been top notch.
