Tasks include taking picture of a specific part of your house, say your bathroom sink. If you have a real problem, you could make that the tree in your front yard, or your mailbox. Other options include solving a math problem, vigorous movement, and more. I haven’t tested it out, yet, but I intend to! The app comes in two flavors, a “free” ad-supported version and Alarmy Pro, for $1.99. I paid for the Pro version imediately.

Aspyr Media released Thursday Sid Meier’s Civilization VI on iPad, the first game from this great franchise to come to iOS. Aspyr said the interface has been reworked for Touch, and it otherwise looks like Civilization VI. Which is awesome for gaming fun and miserable for my time management. I mean, utterly miserable. I do loves me some Civ action! The game is priced at $59.99, a hefty price that tests new waters for bringing premium games to iOS. But, it’s being released with an introductory price of $29.99, half off. This is the base Civilization VI game without any of the expansions for the desktop game. It’s a free (3.1GB) download that lets you play your first 60 moves for free. After that, you have to make an in-app purchase to buy the full game.
