It's Wednesday again, and that means it's time to wait impatiently for midnight to roll around so games will arrive in the US App Store. It's another banner week for gaming as we're getting a host of interesting new games. We're really interested in trying out Rainbow Six Shadow Vanguard on the iPad, and there's also a Max Payne clone that's caught our eye.
It's a genius idea: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. The Smart Cover's epic folding ingenuity -- and the fact that it's literally stacked right next to the iPad 2 when you pick it up at the Apple Store -- made it an instant hit. For that reason, many iPad 2 users have been asking for cases that work with the Smart Cover, rather than against it. Your wishes have been granted! In this week's Best Case Scenario, we checked out back covers from Incipio, Speck, iFrogz and iLuv and checked out how they paired with Apple's Smart Cover.
We recently brought you the story of iOS hit Snuggle Truck's strange journey to the App Store, but now that the cute physics-based animal-transporting game has safely arrived on iPhones and iPads, that doesn't mean developer Owlchemy Labs is resting on its laurels.

There are some pretty good reasons to stick with mobile Safari: it's the iPhone default, so links automatically route to there from other apps, it's pretty speedy, and, even though the app is simple to use, Apple's crammed a ton of functionality into that little guy -- whether in iPhone or iPad flavors. But sometimes... well, sometimes Safari leaves us a little cold, leaves us wanting something a little more full featured, something we don't have to install a bunch of bookmarklets to make work.
We’ve heard all the horror stories about long App Store approval times in the past, although developers by and large seem pretty happy about the way Apple is doing things these days. One major exception appears to be WhitePages, who is debuting their latest app on Android first because of frustration with Cupertino’s approval process.
You may have noticed that both the Mac and iOS App Stores were having some issues beginning early Tuesday evening, with spotty connectivity that seemed to come and go. The issue has continued overnight, and now Apple has emailed developers to notify them of downtime with iTunes Connect.
