1. Clucks by AOL | TBA
AOL-owned TechCrunch unveiled Clucks by AOL today: “A quirkily-named social mobile word-guessing game that (perhaps cynically) hits all the right trends. It uses mobile video via the Viddy network; it’s based on turn-based gameplay a la Song Pop and Draw Something; it offers social graph integration with Facebook; and voice recognition, using APIs from Nuance, the voice company’s first foray into mobile gaming.” Clucks’ website claims the game is coming soon.

2. Camera+ for iPad | 99 cents

  • 60 levels crammed with flying/driving/crashing fun!

  • 4 sandbox levels to stretch your creativity!
