Survive the middle of the week with the help of Seamless Food Delivery, today’s leading Fresh App and a handy way to use your iPad to order food delivery. Follow that up with a little extra security for your iOS devices with the help of Folder Secret, which lets you hide sensitive information and add PINs and other security to your devices. CodeRunner kicks off today’s games offerings, using your device’s GPS capabilities to create the game around you, while Ironworm takes the formula of puzzler Swingworm and throws in bad guys to kill.

Seamless Food Delivery (iPad) Free

Food delivery service Seamless comes to your iPad with the release of its new app, and that can make ordering and receiving dinner a whole lot easier for people in quite a few urban areas. The app allows you to browse supported restaurants, check their menus, place your order and pay by credit card, all from a Wi-Fi or 3G connection. It’ll also save your old orders so you can just re-order quickly and easily next time.

Seamless also lets you get tons of information about restaurants to help you figure out what you might like and what you should offer. Users can rate restaurants and leave feedback, so you can let others know what you think of your favorite places (and why they’re your favorite) while checking ratings before you order.

Folder Secret (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Add additional security to things you don’t want others to see that are stored on your iOS devices. Folder Secret lets you hide folders and add several layers of security, like PIN codes and screen “pattern locks” similar to those seen on Android devices. You can add security to your entire iPhone or iPad, as well as hide sensitive information inside the Folder Secret app.

Folder Secret includes a lot of nifty security features, like a “decoy” mode that catches people trying to access your device, the ability to snap photos and videos from within the app, and an “autolock” timer that seals everything up when you’re away. If you should find you want to share a little content from within Folder Secret though, you can via Twitter and Facebook integration.

CodeRunner (iPhone, iPad) $2.99

You’ve been recruited by a clandestine agency that needs you to help prevent crimes and spy on lawbreakers in CodeRunner. Plug in headphones and you’ll receive messages from your handlers, allowing you to accept missions that have you pursuing objectives and surveilling targets, but in real places. CodeRunner’s goals and objectives are a game, but the app makes use of real GPS data and satellite maps to construct its game world.

As you accept missions in CodeRunner that require you to move to different locations in your area, you’ll receive dispatches from your handler, information from other “agents” and other tidbits to draw you into the game’s world. CodeRunner is a pretty cool take on augmented reality, and is best played in populated areas like parks.

Ironworm (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Not too long ago, developer 10tons Ltd. released Swingworm, a side-scrolling physics puzzler in which players control a worm that swings from ledge to ledge using its teeth and spiky tail. Well, Ironworm is quite literally Swingworm’s heavy metal brother. Taking the physics-style puzzle gameplay of its predecessor, Ironworm is all about body count, throwing players into the midst of a war between worms and bugs in which you need to smash as many flying enemies as possible.

You’ll move around Ironworm’s levels by swinging your worm’s head and tail end over end to hit different ledges, positioning yourself to use your tail to take out monsters. The goal is to clear out enemies on your path to each level’s exit; the more enemies you take down, the better your score in each stage. You’ll also get a bonus if you manage to come through each level unharmed.
