I've been trawling the appstore for stuff to keep me busy on public transport (procrastination ho!), found some pretty good new ones. Anyone found anything else?

so far mine are;
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/osmos-for-ipad/id379323382?mt=8
$5 but just barely worth it

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/carmageddon/id498240451?mt=8
$2, old school cool

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/puzzle-craft/id489178757?mt=8
$1, only 'city building' game i've ever liked, bejeweled-ish gameplay

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/slots-pharaohs-way/id522408559?mt=8
free, slots

Also infectionator+Leps world 2, which are free but haven't gotten into them yet.

Older games: jetpack joyride, trundle, game dev story, bezerk ball, death worm, blaster tank, tank warz, soul calibur

For apps I just got runkeeper for me to excercise with over the holidays, looking out for similar

what are you guys using?

Phooks, I would recommend getting the Touch Arcade app - it reviews games and gives you updates on when games become free / have price drops.

You can add games you like the look of to a 'watch list' which will also keep you posted on price fluctuations on apps. Very surprising how often games go free/cheap!

I have been enjoying:
Hero Academy, (but am now over it) - turn based strategy game (like chess but better, has TF2 characters!)
Kingdom Rush - awesome tower defense game - gets hard
Random Heros - platformer - good fun!
Letterpress - word game

Myself, natslovr & TiT are still playing Hero Academy, it's an awesome little game - add me!

Also,
WarGames: WOPR
Dungeon Raid (not particularly new and no HD/iPad version but still good)

Bad Piggies is the latest from Rovio, but I haven't tried that yet.
Plants vs Zombies 2 is apparently a only few months away as well.

Edit: Oh, also Ticket to Ride is pretty good too, though I've only played the ipad version.

Get Train Conductor, and there's a Train Conductor USA. Both good time wasters

Bad Piggies is pretty cool but a bit short. Good idea, build your own makeshift pig mobile and send it on it's merry way with mostly hilarious results.

Punch Quest is pretty good too. Old school, 2 button play similar to Jetpack joyride, but with oldschool graphics and power ups / special moves galore. It's free too so very win.

Been hammering Fruit Ninja at the moment. Old as game but still epic, and me and my mate have been trading high scores in arcade mode.

I'm not a jogger at all, but the idea for this app really amazed me:

Basically an interactive jogging/running stat tracking app slash zombie running game. Available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone, too!
