Despite not having the best graphics in the world, Synaesthete is pretty remarking for its originality. This strange and fun mixture of action and music will put your musical ear and rhythm to test, as you try to complete note sequences successfully in order to wipe out the bad guys on each stage.

One of the standout apps of this year’s Macworld Conference, Doozla is an intuitive paintbrush and sketch up tool for Mac.

It lets you take snaps with your iSight or color fill one of the original characters drawn up by Plasq. Great for kids!
Obviously we don’t all have the money to splash out on a shiny new iPhone or iPod Touch.

Careful though, once you’re hooked it may be difficult to resist the lure of the real thing!
