I gotta feeling you will like Riddim Ribbon, the new app by Tapulous featuring music from the Black Eyed Peas. Other Fresh iPhone Apps of the week include a mobile version of the famed Sports Illustrated “swimsuit edition”, an app for tweeting and talking, and the AT&T Family Map app. 

1. Riddim Ribbon Featuring the Black Eyed Peas

This brand new iPhone app from Tapulous, developer of such hit titles at Tap Tap Revenge 3 and Lady Gaga Revenge, has you tilting your iPhone to the beats of the Black Eyed Peas and other artists.  Race down the path of a curving ribbon with remixed versions of popular Black Eyed Peas tracks. Other artists on this app include Tiesto and Benny Benassi. Expect more musical goodies in future updates. I gotta feeling this $2.99 app is gonna be a great one.

2. SI Swimsuit 2010

Brooklyn Decker graces the cover of this free iPhone app, which is a mobile media extension of the storied annual “swimsuit edition” from Sports Illustrated Magazine. SI Swimsuit 2010 has 46 pictures and more than 90 minutes of footage. Still can’t get enough? Pay $1.99 and download a premium upgrade. 

3. TalkingTweet

We are all multitaskers these days. However, it’s never a good idea to try to read through tweets sent to you while walking or driving. Thankfully, there is now Talking Tweet. This free app reads the latest micro blogs you are following in four different English voices. Warning – it tends to drain your battery so use with a power source whenever possible.
