I'd like to start off with a quick reminder about today's highly rated free app and book of the day. Both are very appealing and shouldn't be passed over!
For people who aren't used to buying apps, free versions are great tools to find out if you'll enjoy a game enough to spend even a dollar on it. I myself started off with the Angry Birds freebie, and by the time I got to the end of it, I knew full well that I would have no trouble spending months of my life launching birds at pigs.
