New iPhone apps worth downloading: Any.DO To-Do List update, Year Walk, Gun Bros 2

Feb 21, 2013

Get a little more organized in taking on your day’s appointments with the latest update to Any.DO. Our first fresh app’s update lets you turn your to-do lists into agendas with its new features. We’ve also got  some big games today: Year Walk developed by Simogo, which is something of a horror-based puzzle-filled adventure; and Gun Bros 2, the sequel to the popular multiplayer twin-stick shooter.

Any.DO To-Do List update (Free)

What’s it about? Any.DO is a simple, elegant to-do list app with a number of features that make it easy to use and highly responsive.

What’s cool? A slick interface and a number of intuitive features make Any.DO a solid choice for maintaining your agenda. As with other agenda apps, it’s easy to add items to your list, and Any.DO will sync with your online profile to help you keep track of everything you add to your lists, whether on your mobile or your computer, and you can also speak your agenda items rather than type them in. Any.DO’s latest update adds Any.DO Moment, which allows you to transition your to-do list into a day planner.

Who’s it for? If you could use additional organization, try Any.DO.

What’s it like? Both To Do and Evernote also offer useful alternatives for staying organized.

Year Walk ($3.99)

What’s it about? A strange, even horrific first-person adventure title from the makers of Bumpy Road, Year Walk includes a beautiful art style and some clever puzzle.

What’s cool? Year Walk concerns a vision quest taken on by a character in 19th-century Sweden. Players adventure through a snowy landscape by swiping left and right to move laterally and swiping up and down to go forward at certain points. Advancing through the game requires solving various strange puzzles. You’ll also unlock the game’s story, which includes some horrific elements presented with somewhat cartoon graphics. Year Walk isn’t really for kids, but it’s a trippy and interesting adventure game.

Who’s it for? Horror fans and players who enjoy puzzling adventure titles should check out Year Walk.

What’s it like? Players should also check out Simogo’s other amazing and inventive games, Bumpy Road and Beat Sneak Bandit.

Gun Bros 2 (Free)

What’s it about? Glu Games’ follow-up to the popular twin-stick shooter, Gun Bros 2 brings players to new areas to fight new enemies, including giant bosses.

What’s cool? The general gist of Gun Bros 2 is the same as in the franchise’s last outing. Players take on the role of one of two gun-toting brothers, fighting off hordes of enemies. This time out, players can pilot tanks and fight off huge bosses through the course of the game’s story. There are also new enemies and new weapons to unlock along the way. Gun Bros 2 features cooperative multiplayer, like last time, as well as new game modes.

Who’s it for? If you liked the first Gun Bros, twin-stick shooters and fierce multiplayer, you’ll like Gun Bros 2.
