Editor’s Pick: Robbery Bob™
Chillingo’s Robbery Bob has you playing as Bob, and he’s a robber (bet you couldn’t have figured that out). Your goal is to help Bob finish a few jobs before he can officially retire from the game of robbery, and each one is a crazy, puzzle filled mission of excellence. Sneak your way around, check out the intricately designed neighborhood and meet the locals. Grab as much stuff as possible without getting caught. It has fun graphics and even more fun gameplay, so grab it during today’s promotion for free. No need to steal this one.
Setting timers can often take just as much time as the allotment you’re looking to set, right? It’s tap after tap after tap, and before you know it, you’re getting frustrating at the time you’re wasting, as opposed to monitoring.
With Timer, you can change that by choosing from a list of preset timers that require just one simple tap in order to start them up. The gorgeously designed timer icons burst from the page in their colorful arrays, beckoning you to pick them while you wait for whatever it is you’re waiting for. This app does one thing, but it does it beautifully and efficiently, which is all you can ask for.
