Spend 2012 documenting your life with My iStory, our leading Fresh App today. The app is all about keeping a journal that’s more robust and involved than what you might find in a notebook. You can use text, photos, audio and more to make an interactive experience that you can share – or not. And speaking of sharing, if you’re into seeing what kinds of images Instagram users are creating, try InstaFlow. It’s designed to make browsing shots on Instagram easy and fun. In games, wake the dragon with Dragon Wrath, a Super Mega Worm-like side-scroller in which you play a dragon and try to eat as many humans as you can. You can also become a military genius in turn-based strategy title Legion of the Damned.

My iStory (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Think of My iStory as a journal that’s more than just your thoughts on paper. Sure, you can write text journal entries, but you can also add a whole lot more to them than that. My iStory lets you tell the story of a day or month (or whatever) through the use of text, photos, videos and even sound and music. And My iStory is designed to make it easy to either keep your stories private with the use of a passcode, or share them with the world by posting them to Facebook.

The app includes such features as a search ability to find specific stories or elements, and you can use My iStory to create an e-book or slideshow of your entries. The app even lets you pull photos from your Camera Roll to quickly make journal entries based on the dates they were taken, and you can add things to your shots like word bubbles to help tell your story.

InstaFlow (iPhone, iPad) Free

InstaFlow is a great app for Instagram fanatics. It’s designed to make exploring and searching through Instagram photos easier and more intuitive, dividing photos into “stacks” to keep them organized. You can quickly page through your own photos or the photos of your friends, or flip through popular photos from around Instagram and see the ones you’ve marked as your favorites.

Options for getting around in InstaFlow include items like a search field and lots of information about each photo, including its Instagram comments. Each time you tap a photo, you’re given more stacks of related photos, so you can theoretically keep flipping forever. The app is designed to be easy to navigate so you can get maximum enjoyment out of your photos and those of others.

Dragon Wrath (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Similar to titles such as Super Mega Worm and Grabatron, Dragon Wrath puts you in the role of a freshly-hatched dragon who comes into the world to find his mother slain and his treasure horde looted. It’s time to get revenge on the humans who have ruined your life before it has even begun in this side-scrolling arcade title, in which you’ll snack on Medieval soldiers and blast them with magical dragon fire, acid, frost or lightning breath.

Over time, you’ll unlock new fighting moves that let you bring destruction to the humans. You can customize your dragon’s color and abilities to make it your own, and the game includes 37 levels of mayhem plus achievements. Its developers also promise Game Center support in the near future.

There’s also multiplayer support for up to four players with a pass-n-play mode, online multiplayer for four players, a custom map-builder and Game Center support.
