Diapers.com update (Free)

What’s cool? Diapers.com has all your baby supplies covered, from diapers (obviously) to formula, nursing supplies, and even toys for babies and infants. You can shop from anywhere with an Internet connection, and Diapers.com lets you search the site, track orders, and check out your account and past purchases. The app’s new update enhances the shopping experience with product videos.

HugBot ($2.99)

What’s it about? HugBot is a set of semi-romantic Mad Libs, allowing users to make novelty messages out of pre-existing phrases.

What’s cool? It doesn’t take much to create some goofy messages with the help of HugBot. In fact, from start to finish it requires only five steps. You pick a starting phrase, fill in a name, and add something funny to conclude it. The message depends on your sense of humor, but it’s a fun way to interact with friends or someone special, especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner. The latest update to HugBot adds iPad support and more phrases.

Who’s it for? HugBot is a good pick for adolescents and romantics who want to send “hug” messages to friends and crushes.

Cypress Inheritance ($3.99)

What’s it about? A 3-D action-puzzle title built on the Unreal Engine, Cypress Inheritance sends you to a mansion controlled by artificial intelligence to find priceless paintings and fight off robots.

What’s cool? Cypress Inheritance is pretty slick-looking due to its Unreal Engine graphics. The premise of the title is intriguing, as you’ll fight off enemies with a mace and shield while simultaneously searching for paintings. Cypress Inheritance avoids being too bloody or gratuitously violent.

Who’s it for? Fans of adventure games and those who like 3-D worlds should take a look at exploring the Cypress mansion.
