New in the App Catalog for 17 April 2011

by Derek Kessler Mon, 18 Apr 2011 9:21 am EDT

The last week was pretty much a slow one in the App Catalog. Up until last night there were two new apps since Tuesday. While we got several more overnight, it’s still pretty slow. Let’s just hope this is the calm before the storm.

  • Carbon for Twitter is an excellent new Twitter client that’s built around a horizontal-swiping panels system for your timelines. Carbon is incredibly feature rich, and includes support for multiple account cards and  Just Type Quick Actions.
  • Surf Report CA from Fine by Five Software retrieves the latest surf reports and forecasts for top spots up and down along the California coast.
  • Denki Blocks! Deluxe HD is a unique puzzle game where blocks of the same color will stick together.

Nearly a week’s worth of apps, new and updated, can be found after the break.
