    Catching up on the Starbucks freebies:

    LAST week's was FlightTracker Pro (reg. $9.99!) that has real-time flight info (and some pretty amazing reviews).
    This week's is the game Hundreds...reg $4.99. I'll be downloading that one and trying it out later today.
    Last week's freebie on the Starbucks App was a funny time-waster called Whirly Word, a "create a word" puzzle.

    :laugh: The thing is, I have picked up the last couple Preservation Hall CDs, too! I liked what they did with their last release. They put out a "standard" CD and a "deluxe" CD (with some extra tracks...but it was available anywhere. I might order the Amazon CD (also has the two exclusive tracks) once I've had a chance to sample the tracks. (I do hate to support this nonsense, but...)

    Mumford and Sons did that with their release of Babel, too. But every time I look in a store, it seems as if there are two or three or four different versions of Babel available! :D

    I may have to pick up that Preservation Hall Jazz Band album. I'd like to have it on CD, but will probably stick with the MP3.

    If you have the Starbucks App, there's a free Summer Song 2013 Sampler that should be available for download now!

    This week's free app from Starbucks is Cyto...another in a long line of visually stunning, aurally pleasing games that I can't figure out but my ten year old nephew will master in a day or two!

    Some fun free apps from Starbucks this week: if you have the iPhone Starbucks app, you can download "Weber's On The Grill" summer cooking app for free. And the stores have a GREAT photo app this week: Fast Camera, which allows you to take up to 800 pics a minute! Don't miss those fireworks/sports shots/action ANYTHING!

    My public library subscribes to Freegal, so I can actually get The Civil Wars for 'free' (albeit only incrementally because of the weekly download limit).

    The company doesn't have much of a web presence, but here's an interesting criticism of the service: http://librarianinblack.net/librarianinblack/2011/04/just-say-no-to-freegal.html

    I see her points, but as a user I've been fine with the limitation.

    The freebie on the Starbucks iPhone app this week is "Dust To Dust" from the new Civil Wars CD. I'll post the Pick of the Week tomorrow, as I spent the day at the WI State Fair.
