San Francisco \At a Glance\ City Guide - Free

By BeeLoop SL released on: 2009-06-07T01:55:22Z

The guides "At a Glance" comprise a selection of the most important points of interest in every city which have been selected and checked by experts on trips so you don't miss the opportunity to know them whether you are just visiting the city or you live in it.

For each point of interest you are offered a wide range of information which can include the address, phone number, e-mail address, location - to be located on the map or to show the route from the user's location -, the nearest car parks and underground stations, a picture, the editor's classification, and ticket prices, among the most important details. It is also possible to add this information to the device's own address book - so you won't have to add it by hand - as well as send it to other users by e-mail. All this information is within the guides so it is not necessary to download it from Internet (check availability of this section in

In the "Categories" section, the "At a Glance" guides allow sorting the reference required by type, name, price, nearness or editor's selection as well as further filtering, sorting and searching, so the user can easily find the point of interest s/he is looking for.

The categories are:

-"tHistory and culture
-"tWhat to see
-"tEating out
-"tNight life

Several guides also have the "Utilities & Services" section (with the same filtering, sorting and searching features than "Categories" section has).

The utilities & services are:

-"tPolice stations
-"tMetro Stations
-"tPetrol Stations
-"tCar rental
-"tPost Offices
-"tEmbassies and consulates

On the other hand, the "At a Glance" guides also help the user to know what can be done at a given moment thanks to their section "What to do now?", where different options among the whole reference database will be suggested depending on the point at which the user is located or the time of the day at which the query is done.

Also, the "What's nearby?" section makes it possible for users to select all those points of interest located at less than a given distance and therefore have a quick access to their details.

Finally, the section "Favourites" will allow the user mark the most viewed references and therefore enable a quicker and more direct further query.

All the guides are available in:



Amsterdam, Antwerp, Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Bern, Boston, Bruges, Brussels, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Cologne, Copenhagen, Donostia (San Sebastian), Dublin, Florence, Geneva, Ghent, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lisbon, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Menorca, Milan, Moscow, Munich, Naples, New York, Oporto, Oslo, Palermo, Paris, Prague, Rome, Saint Petersburg, San Francisco, Seville, Sofia, Stockholm, Sydney, Tallinn, Valencia, Varsaw, Venecia, Vienna, Washington, Zaragoza and Z"u00fcrich.

By San Francisco App Studio released on: 2010-04-01T10:54:47Z

This version of Moe's Notes is being phased out. It only exists here in order to provide updates to existing users. If you download it now, it will function only for a limited time. Please download the re-launched Moe's Notes instead. (Search for "moes".)

FYI: In 2010, Moe's Notes was published by the San Francisco App Studio, which went out of business. Unfortunately, this required that this app be re-launched by Moe's Kitchen, the original creator. If you bought Moe's Notes last year, thank you very much! I hope you will consider checking out the new Moe's Notes. Its new features include:
* multiple images/videos per note

Runway Free

By Red Watermelon released on: 2009-11-11T10:40:04Z

Enter the fast paced and exciting world of Runway on your iPhone and iPod Touch. You start the game as the lead Air Traffic Controller at Honolulu International Airport. Help Gulfstream G650 aircraft land at your airport before they run out of fuel. Direct them to the gate to unload passengers and to the fuel depot to prepare for their outbound journey. Then it is time for more passengers and a timely takeoff.

The fun is just beginning. Move on to the rolling hills of San Francisco and say hello to the Boeing 737. The challenge continues in the mountains of Geneva, Switzerland with hungry passengers and a special food service. If you master that, be the first to fly the Airbus A380 in the bustling port of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. If you can handle that double decker, continue east to the tricky landings and urban life of Hong Kong and repair planes flying in from far away. Prove your mettle at busy and crowded JFK International in New York City and at London's Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom.


- Drag planes to the runway and draw out paths for them once they are on the ground

- Visual and audio feedback to play quickly and effectively

- Six exciting cities with new adventures each time

- Three types of aircraft with their own unique characteristics

- Multiple runways, gates, and service depots
- Increasing difficulty and challenges in later cities

- In-game tutorials makes getting started fun and easy

- Want to let a friend play? Manage users right inside the game

- Global high scores list to show off your accomplishments

- Theme music for each city and helpful sound effects

- Settings to customize the game to your personal preferences
