Last Halloween, Rovio Mobile released Angry Birds Halloween to coincide with the holiday. That eventually gave birth to Angry Birds Seasons for the December holidays. Now, we have word that the next edition will be Angry Birds Valentine's Day.
One of the great things about Apple’s second-generation Apple TV is that the software running it is based on the same iOS used in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad -- meaning that jailbreaking the box and installing cool stuff is only a few clicks away. If you think that requires a computer science degree, think again.
This was the week the App Store cracked the 10 billion download mark and we have to say lotsa luck to the Microsoft app store. We hope to see you reach 10 billion downloads sometime around 2025. Bwahahaha! We kid, we kid. The MS app store will never reach 10 billion downloads! Zing! We kid again, we kid. All right, enough comedy, on with the all the news that's fit not to miss, but just in case you did.
Here at Mac|Life headquarters, we believe that sharing is caring. That's right: every bit of news that we could possibly want our colleagues to be privy to, we shout it out loud from the industrial-sized soapboxes stashed away under our desks. And when we can't physically make proclamations here at the office, we do so with our Macs and iOS devices on the go. In this edition of Free App Friday, we're featuring three apps that'll help you get the word out about whatever it is you've got going on, and keep you in the know about your neighbor's agenda, too.
There's really no denying that the original Tiki Towers, released in 2008, was a shameless, unabashed ripoff of indie sensation World of Goo. However, a strange thing has happened since then: we've stopped caring. It might have been a little obnoxious at first, but those cute little monkeys soon destroyed any foul feelings we had towards the game.
Now we have word that the sequel has been released on the App Store, and this time we welcome our simian comrades with open arms.
If you've ever jailbroken an iOS device, there's little doubt that you've already paid a visit to the Cydia App Store. Full of invaluable iOS application that for one reason or another didn't make it into the iTunes App Store, Jay Freeman's Cydia has always been a one-stop shop to make your jailbreaking efforts worth while. Now, thanks to a few key updates to Cydia, it appears that the service will become easier to use than ever.
Adding to its growing collection of mobile emulations of its classic games, Sega has released Virtua Fighter 2 in the App Store. This isn't the well-known arcade version, though. Rather than that gorgeous (by 1995 standards) 3D version, this is the 2D Sega Genesis version of that same game--we know, it's a little confusing.
This week, we'll show you how to figure out how much free space is available on your iOS device, as well as ways to optimize what you've got loaded on them. We'll also show you the basics of iTunes content control and how to manage apps.
French game publisher Gameloft has pulled the lid off of its interesting new iOS action game with some new information. Last week, the company released a trailer for the game but declined to give any actual details.

The International Mobile Gaming Awards announced its picks for the very best mobile gaming apps of the year. The awards cover games from many different platforms including Android, Linux, and Flash, but unsurprisingly it's iOS that is dominating the awards this year.
