Ticket to Ride Pocket, the excellent iOS adaptation of the award winning and best selling board game, is now free for a limited time. Similar to its iPad sibling, Ticket to Ride Pocket was designed from the ground up to make the complete board game experience possible on the iPhone’s 3.5″ screen.
A recent update (v1.1) also introduced an all-new asynchronous multiplayer mode, where players can challenge each other online via GameCenter. And for the more ambitious, multiple online games can even be played at the same time (simply cycle through matches when your turn’s up). The rules of the game can seem daunting at first, but an informative tutorial in-game (embedded video below) should get newbies up to speed in no time. If board games are your cup of tea, don’t miss out on this awesome freebie offer.

Vonage, one of the largest VOIP providers in the industry, has released Vonage Mobile, an app that intends with go toe-to-toe with Skype. Like Skype, Vonage Mobile lets users talk and text for free with anyone else who has the app installed, and international calling rates are dirt cheap. In fact, Vonage claims that overseas rates are 30% cheaper than Skype (Based on per-minute rates to the top 50 countries called) and 70% less than major mobile carriers. Conveniently, credits are topped up with your iTunes account. Additionally, even if you’re not a current Vonage home/business customer, you can still place calls to any Vonage number at no cost.
Best of all, for a limited time, Vonage Mobile users can now call the US, Canada or Puerto Rico from anywhere in the world for Free (limit of 3,000 minutes/month). This promotion alone is worth downloading the app just to test out the voice quality over Wifi, 3G and 4G data networks.

Evernote, the notetaking tool I heavily rely on for storing all my work/personal notes, ideas and pretty much everything I come across on the web, has been updated for the iPhone and iPad. Version 4.1.8 brings about “smarter” titles, easier sharing (new sharing icon), improved editing on iOS 5 (faster and better style preservation from copy/paste) and other minor improvements. For many of you who can’t stand having all those notes with “Untitled Notes” – when a note is created without entering a proper title – the Predictive note titles feature should be a welcomed addition:

neu.Pen’s solid neu.Annotate+ PDF app has been updated to version 1.2 and its price slashed to $0.99 (down from $4.99) for the next two weeks. As part of the update, AirPrint and AirPlay are now supported, along with an all-new Search function (text annotations included), the ability to rearrange pages and more. As its name suggests, the PDF reader lets you create handwritten/text notes, highlights, drawings and insert various pre-made stamps. You can even import/export PDF documents to/from your Dropbox account. At its current price of $0.99, it’s certainly one of the best bargains for PDF apps that can perform annotations. If you’re still not convinced, the free (and still very capable) neu.Annotate PDF is also available, though with significantly less features. Oh, did I mention that it’s a universal app? Demo video of neu.Annotate+ after the break.

AMC’s The Walking Dead, based off of Robert Kirkman’s popular comic book series of the same name (which happens to one of my favorite comics), now has its own companion iPhone/iPad app - The Walking Dead – Walkers Kill Count. Using audio fingerprinting technology (like Shazaam but for video), Walkers Kill Count lets you play along while watching season 2 of the hit zombie show.
The second half of Season 2 starts on February 19th, so if you’re a fan of the excellent (and gory) TV show, grab the free iOS app and begin making your kill count predictions.
