There are two kinds of people: one who cares about productivity apps, the other not so much. If you are among the latter, you may consider skipping this review. But if you – like me – enjoy checking out the latest attempts in raising ones productivity levels, then you may already have heard about Parker Planner. Ethan Parker and his team left the paper planner business in order to concentrate on creating the perfect day planning app. Let’s see how far along they are!

There’s now one more reason to use imo instant messenger on the iPhone. With the latest update, the all-in-one chat app can now make voice calls over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G between imo users. All that’s required is an iDevice running iOS 3.1+ (or Android phone) and some friends who have imo installed. Unlike other popular messaging apps on iOS (Whatsapp, Viber), imo lets you connect with friends from existing IM accounts, including Skype, MSN, Google Chat, Facebook, Yahoo and more. Other features include group messaging, voice IMs, persistent push notifications (1 week after app closed) and searchable chat history. One other cool thing is that you can head over to imo.im on your desktop web browser and do pretty much the same thing. If you haven’t checked out imo yet, it’s completely free well worth the space on your iPhone/iPad.

As always there were some fairly interesting games this week, but in particular a couple brought a twisted sense of nostalgia to my heart. Activision released a re-imagining of their classic hit Pitfall to coincide with its 30th anniversary, and instead of going a more traditional platform route they chose to emulate the Temple Run formula. The thing is, from the few moments I've had a chance to play so far, they might have actually done it better. On the flip side of things is Organ Trail: Director's Cut. Rather than a simple retooling of the original Oregon Trail, this version takes the same basic game play and swaps out the pioneers setting for a station wagon and some undead adversaries. Not to be left out of the "what's old is new" jumble, Elevate Entertainment has published their take on the much abused brick breaking genre. For Draw Breaker, however, instead of moving a paddle around you just draw one in where you want it, which adds a whole other dimension to the game.
