Apple’s free app of the week: Ridge Racer Slipstream

Apple on Thursday updated its App of the Week promotion with the game Ridge Racer Slipstream. For the next 7 days, you can pick up the popular arcade racer for free on both iPhone and iPad, a solid savings of $3.

From the App Store Editors’ notes:

Take to the road in an arcade racer where drafting, drifting, and well-timed nitro boosts are key to a first-place finish. Solid handling makes driving a white-knuckled joy, while 10 gorgeous tracks and multiple game modes will keep you hooked for hours on end.

And here’s a clip of the game in action:

Big Keys, Subtotal, Dazzle Browser, and other apps to check out this weekend

This week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup includes a third-party keyboard with extra large keys, a new app for saving money, and a mobile-friendly web browser. And as always, we have two great new games for you to check out this weekend.

Big Keys

Big Keys is exactly what it sounds like: a third-party iOS keyboard with extra large keys. I’m sure this isn’t a brand new concept and the third-party keyboard implementation in iOS is pretty rough, but with Mother’s Day this weekend, I figured this was worth a mention. Anyone who has trouble typing on (or seeing) the tiny keys on the iOS keyboard will love this. Now it only works in landscape mode, but you get large keys and large emojis. Plus it has a numeric keypad, supports gestures, and it’s customizable. Big Keys is available for $2.99.

Subtotal

Get up to 10% cash back when eating out with the app Subtotal. It’s simple: at the end of your meal, select your restaurant. Follow the on-screen instructions to enter and pay your bill (supports Apple Pay). Present the on-screen barcode to your waiter—it works just like a gift card. You get your cash back in a few days. Now it’s a new thing, so only a handful of restaurants are supported so far (Applebee’s, Chili’s, Red Robin, etc.), but this seems like an app worth checking out for folks who want to save money with little effort. Subtotal is available for free.

Dazzle Browser

The third-party iOS web browser space is a tough one to get into. Apple’s Safari, of course, has a huge head start with prominent placement and performance enhancements. Google’s Chrome has solidified itself as the official runner-up. Then there are a bunch of smaller browsers fighting for a distant third. Dazzle throws its hat into the ring with a simple, mobile-first interface. It was built for one-handed usage with a unified search bar located towards the bottom of the app, and the ability to quickly swipe between pages. Dazzle Browser is available for free.

Sky Gamblers Races

Your favorite fighter plane franchise is back with the ultimate air racing game. Featuring more than 90 highly detailed WWII planes, Sky Gamblers Races tasks players with building their reputation on the air racing circuit. Unique visuals, sound effects, and gyroscope controls make for an immersive gaming experience. There are over 100 races in different environments and 5 game modes: normal, slow down, elimination, timed races and death races. You of course can customize your plane and even race opponents in real time. Sky Gamblers Races is available for $2.99.

Crash Club

If you’re looking for something a little different this weekend, Crash City is the anti-racing game. Drive anywhere you want in this big coastal city, break everything and take down other drivers for points to rule the leaderboard! Massively multiplayer action with over 30 players live and real time in every game. Everything can be crashed, with weapons and abilities available in the middle of the action. There are over 25 unique cars that can be customized in both looks and performance. Crash City is available for free (with some IAPs).
