Great news for you Mahjong Butterfly lovers out there (some of us are addicted to the game). If you have read my past reviews, this is my absolute favorite game on the Kindle (see my Mahjong Butterfly review). Several of us were frustrated because we could only earn a portion of the 50 butterflies. I felt like I was waiting in vain for an update to ever come out – but in the middle of June they released v1.1 which now allows all 50 butterflies to be collected. If you haven’t updated – get it now and get back to collecting. If you haven’t purchased this app, it is well worth the $2.99. Still only available on the Kindle 2, Kindle Keyboard and Kindle DX – I feel sorry for the rest of you.
To finish off June, there were also two new interactive fiction releases.
The Shadow in the Cathedral by Textfyre is the first in the Klockwerk Series. I have to admit I snorted when I saw the $9.99 price tag attached to it. Really? $9.99. Must be a potential Pulitzer Prize winner. If anyone out there puts forth that kind of money for this app, please let me know how it is because I’m not going to even try it. Available for all Kindle devices with active content except the Kindle (4).
infix: Insight by black belt games is a Science Fiction interactive fiction app. At least it is reasonably priced at $1.99. Available for all Kindles with Active Content.
I’m off to collect some butterflies while we wait to see what July brings.

Here are some recent new additions to the Kindle Active Content Store. You can find all of these at the Kindle Active Content Hot New Releases page.
Doodle Fit – A $1.99 game where you fit a set of blocks into a given shape. There are over 250 puzzles arranged in 9 themed packs.
POGO Hearts, Spades and More! from Electronic Arts – A collection of 5 card games for the Kindle. It’s amusing to see EA recycling cover art for its titles. The card game collection is $3.99 and pretty good value for money.
Hidden Expedition: Amazon from Big Fish Games. This is a hidden object game and it’s done very well and until recently had very high reviews. It’s $4.99 but based on what people are saying it’s well worth it.
Ghostboy and the Nameless Grave by Robot Media. It’s positioned as an Interactive Children’s Book for the Kindle and from my brief experience with it, it’s quite amazing. It’s $2.99 and given the quality I’d say it’s well worth it.
We close with perhaps the most impressive Kindle App I’ve seen in recent times (especially in terms of ambition and value for money).
Finance Manager by SwashApps is a Financial Tools collection for Kindle. It includes Calculators of various types and a financial calendar. At $1.99 it’s definitely worth a try.
That’s it for this post – More in a few days.
