Apps: Haunted House, Microsoft Remote Desktop, Real Racing 3 1.4 + Uniqlo Recipe


StoryToys is back with another interactive pop-up book — Haunted House ($2), just in time for Halloween. Though the theme may seem scary, most kids won’t be frightened looking through this book with eight pop-up scenes. Haunted House includes full voice narration in English, French, German, and Spanish. A number of games are included within the pages, letting kids have the opportunity to seat at ghosts and mix a witch’s brew.

Apps: Haunted House, Microsoft Remote Desktop, Real Racing 3 1.4 + Uniqlo Recipe

Microsoft’s brand new Microsoft Remote Desktop (free) app lets users connect to a remote PC to access Windows from anywhere. Users can access remote resources through the Remote Desktop Gateway. Microsoft promises a secure connection to data and applications, simple management of connections, and high quality video and sound streaming. An easy connection to external monitors and projectors helps those business types who need to make presentations.
EA’s Real Racing 3 (free) has updated to version 1.4. Three Ferraris have been added to the game — the FF, 458, and F12berlinetta. A new track, Spain’s Circuit de Catalunya, has also been added to Real Racing 3. Time trial ghost challenges, and the ability to hire crew members are two more features added in this major update.


Uniqlo has introduced Uniqlo Recipe, a set of 24 beautifully photographed recipes from six emerging U.S. chefs. The free app includes a timer with original music and cooking sounds, as well as recipe pages that show step-by-step instructions for preparing the dishes. Perhaps not surprisingly given the company’s focus on selling clothing, Uniqlo Recipe also lets users easily purchase the outfits worn by the highlighted chefs.
