Turf Geography Club
Now you can own your city, thanks to a new location-based game called Turf. Turning your city into a virtual Monopoly board of sorts, Turf lets you buy up properties you visit, and try and steal your favorite locations from other players.
Purchases are made not by price and instead by chance. Buying a location involves spinning a virtual slot machine. Each spin costs a certain amount of coins. Stopping on a “Win” square will win you the location from its current owner; stopping on a “Lose” means you’ll have to try again.
The odds of winning a spin and the cost of a spin vary depending on the property in question and what its current owner has done to it.

This week we found an app that turns your city into a virtual Monopoly board. Another app helps you find a seat on your next flight, and yet another gets to know you and will make recommendations such as where you should grab dinner based on what you've done previously.
If you want to keep up with the latest news, we found an app this week that will send the latest headlines to your handset, as well as another that uses a special language processor to read through your Twitter feed and sort through what's important.
Another app from the week will let you tune into your favorite radio station, and another will automatically create galleries of photos from the last party you attended with your friends.
