Free-App Hero: 500 not out

Posted on March 31, 2011 by RevStu

Sorry updates have been a bit thin on the ground for the last few days, viewers – I've been insanely busy with about eight different things, and probably will be until Monday. One of them was reaching a milestone with the mighty Free-App Hero, which has now featured a frankly amazing 500 games since being released four months ago and written 150,000 words (roughly two novels' worth) about them. Yikes.

Astoundingly, that translates to somewhere in the region of £5 million saved by the app's users since it came out, and all without having to spend hundreds of tedious hours wading through thousands of godawful ad-strewn games written by escaped mental patients in order to find the good stuff.

Anyway, here are some pictures of weird stuff I saw in the park last week.

Admirably inventive repurposing of a pothole in a path.

One side of a bridge over a stream.

The other side. (Click to enlarge.)

Two views of what appears to be some sort of squirrel gazebo. Perhaps there was a squirrel wedding recently.

Your guess is as good as mine.

CGI squirrel breaking up.

    Cheers! Good to know we’re selling well in the insect community, too.

    I saw that volcano in the park.  Although I didn't realise it was a volcano until reading this article because I was looking at it upside down.

    I've already got AppMiner installed (and never uses it, btw) and with great sites like this and Touch Arcade I wasn't sure I really needed this, but what the hell – I can't say no to a good deal so bought it anyway. . :-)
