SeeMail is today’s leading Fresh iPhone App. It’s a pretty straightforward app that’s all about making it easier to share images with more people and with more context. In gaming, we’ve got two offerings to start your week: Bitless, a tough platformer that requires some fast reflexes, and The Infinity Project 2, a first-person shooter with high-quality graphics and time travel as a major plot point.

SeeMail update (iPhone, iPad) Free

Share photos quickly and easily with SeeMail, which allows users to amplify their pics by adding text, voice or sound when they send them out to family and friends. You can add captions of up to 100 words to your images, or as much as 33 seconds of sound, before sending your images to whomever you want, privately.

The app’s latest update brings a new user interface, which includes new help screens that make it easier to figure out how to do everything there is to do with SeeMail. Facebook integration also has been added to the app, making it easier to share with more people, and you can access and send any of your photos from your Facebook albums through SeeMail as well.

Bitless (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Platformer Bitless is going to challenge you. It’s also going to kill you a lot. But if you like your old-school games difficult, you’re going to want to check out this very simple platformer. The premise has you controlling a square “bit” character, whose forward motion you can’t control. Tapping the screen allows you to jump, however, and you’ll need to use that control to dodge enemies, pits and other hazards in order to reach the exit of each level.

Bitless packs 50 tough levels to work through, with three different bosses to defeat along the way. You’re scored on each stage by how many times you die, so precision is key. The app includes its own achievements and leaderboards, and features some pretty funny writing to lighten up the experience.

The Infinity Project 2 (iPhone, iPad) $4.99

Graphical fidelity is pretty high in first-person shooter The Infinity Project 2, which means that as you’re running around the game, shooting and knifing evil aliens, things will look pretty great. The game also includes a fairly in-depth story that spans multiple time periods, in which you play a space marine tasked with stopping the enslavement of the human race by merciless aliens called Talons.

In addition to its single-player campaign mode, The Infinity Project 2 packs a pair of additional ways to play. First is a survival mode that has players wading through 10 unlockable levels to see how long you can fight off waves of enemies. Second is a multiplayer mode in which you can take on as many as four players in total over an Internet connection or six through Bluetooth. There’s also Game Center support that brings leaderboards and achievements to the mix.
