Another 'Build Your Collection' Week

Another 'Build Your Collection' Week

As they did last week the UK iTunes Store appears to be hosting another build your collection week. This time there is a selection of films from the 70's. As usual, iTunes has a few other movies on offer this week, namely Beethoven (£4.99) and Crazy Stupid Love (£3.99) but I thought I'd pick a few from the 70's collection to highlight. 

The seventies was an exciting time for cinema, with many of the world famous directors we know today making their first real forays into feature films. Also, the invention of much smaller cameras allowed directors to get out of the studios sound stages and onto the streets to capture a more gritty real world visual.

Free App of the Week - Hyperburner

Every week Apple makes an iOS app free to its customers. This week it's an exciting flight game called Hyperburner by Patrick Cook.   

Hyperburner allows you to pilot a starship through an ever increasing harder 3D obstacle course. It does let you feel as if you’re piloting the Millennium Falcon, weaving its way into the depths of the Death Star in Return of the Jedi (OK, that might just be my boyhood fantasy showing itself).
