Ninja Stealth Missions (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)
As a ninja, stealth is key to successful assassinations and... well, whatever else ninjas get up to. Ninja Stealth Missions is a game dedicated to avoiding detection. You control a ninja moving around a grid in attempts to get from one side to the other. But there are people in the way, who can see and detect you from a certain distance. Your goal in this puzzler is getting around the people without them seeing you or getting suspicious.
You’ll find eight different techniques and ninja weapons at your disposal to help you keep from getting found out as you sneak through the 70 levels found in Ninja Stealth Missions. Avoiding traps and people and racking up a high score will get you noticed on the game’s leaderboards, provided by OpenFeint, and you can also test your skill against the game’s achievements.
Camera XL - Megapixel Doubler (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)
Camera XL purports to make your pictures sharper, doubling the potential resolution of shots you take with your iPhone or iPad 2’s rear-facing camera from 2 megapixels to 4. With higher resolution, it follows that you should get sharper photos -- I’m not sure if that’s exactly true, but for free, it can’t hurt to give the app a try.
You’ll get other interesting options when you download Camera XL. The app is designed to make it easier to shoot yourself with your device’s rear camera by making the whole screen serve as the shutter button. You can also quickly share your photos with others with email and social networking straight from Camera XL.
Unnecessary Censorship (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)
You might have seen this bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in which Jimmy takes video clips of things like news interviews, TV shows and Congressional speeches and adds censorship -- unnecessarily. The joke often makes harmless things sound hilariously dirty, and you can do the same with this app of the same name, but with your own videos.
Unnecessary Censorship lets you bleep out or add black “censored” boxes to your videos, be they some you had on your camera roll or new things you shoot from the app. Once you’re done, you get a ton of sharing options to let other people witness your handiwork, including the ability to upload to YouTube, iTunes File Sharing, Facebook and Twitter -- or you can just save it yourself.
