Clear

Son. We're simply stunned that a simple to-do app can be more fun than any game we've ever downloaded. Complete with Nintendo-esque sound effects and a sweet 70's-style icon, Clear ($1) is a list-keeping wunderkind that uses nothing but gestures — swipe right to check off an item, swipe left to delete one, pinch to close the list, pull down to create a new one, tap and hold to reorder — to make and manage all of your life's lists. You need to see it in action for yourself. Getting stuff done has never been this enjoyable.

  • Scribe

    Whether you write novels, take notes, or make grocery lists, the modern writer needs an app that just gets out of the way and makes writing less painful and more fun. After getting tired of the numbing options available, one Uncrate editor decided to just build the thing himself. Scribe ($3), a universal app for the iPad and iPhone, gives you a clutter-free writing environment, with an awesome monospaced font, and super-easy HTML support to brainlessly markup your prose for web stuff. Oh, and it syncs with Dropbox and iCloud too. It's what we use to write Uncrate when we go iPad-only on the road. Plus, there's at least a 93% chance you're getting an iPad on Sunday. So Scribe will be right here, waiting on you.

  • Stamped

    We'll be the first to admit that the idea of signing up for yet another social network sounds about as fun as a dinner date with a dead man, but Stamped (Free) might just be cool enough to make it worthwhile. The idea is that you put your stamp of approval on, well, just about anything — books, restaurants, music, games, movies, and more — and share your stamps with your friends, who likewise share their stamps with you. The nice part about the whole thing is that there are no 1-5 star reviews or anything like that. You simply stamp something you totally love (so they're all basically 5-star recommendations), and you're initially limited to 100 stamps. So you can't go on a crazy stamping spree, recommending every single one of your Usher remixes.
