Top 10 UK Paid Apps on iPhone

Instant success for Modula's heart rate monitor

It may be no coincidence that a healthcare aid has proven popular among the Apple fraternity this week, given Dead Space’s heart pounding debut on the iOS platform ten days ago.

Although EA’s Qi chart-topping horror shooter couldn’t survive on the UK paid apps list, the cardiac ordeal gamers go through when extinguishing the predatory Necromorphs can at least now be accurately monitored.

By placing the tip of your finger over the iPhone’s camera lens, Modula’s software is able to take a heart rate measurement, whether you’re at rest in the morning or under exertion at the gym.

According to the publisher, Instant Heart Rate works on the same principle as the medical pulse oximeters used in hospitals, and who are we to argue?

Crossfading seamlessly from beats per minute to, errr, MORE beats per minute, Qi awoke from its slumber this am to find the dulcet tones of Laan Labs’s desktop turntable app straight in at #4.

Tap DJ’s integrated iPod library access enables all aspiring Tongys to mix and scratch their pre-owned tracks to their - ahem - heart’s content.

It’s a little known fact that the pitch and BPM of a tune are intrinsically linked, so ‘spinning’ a disc 10 per cent faster shifts the timbre and tempo 10 per cent higher.

Along the same lines, Qi speculates whether the position of Tap DJ on Apple’s marketplace is similarly connected to its introductory price of £1.19, and whether raising its hire fee will have an adverse effect next Friday.

Further down the Top 10 hit parade, Miniclip has every reason to celebrate, as its Flash sensation Fragger (shadowing the exploits of Canabalt and Cover Orange) experiences a business renaissance.

But will the grenade launching expert obliterate its iTunes enemies and hang onto the #6 trench, or could Halfbrick’s Fruit Ninja spring a shaolin surprise or three?

Tune in next Friday to find out.
