Chillingo’s Cut the Rope has become an absolute App Store sensation in recent months, due to engaging touchscreen gameplay, fantastic visuals, and a steady stream of free added levels. The primary goal in each stage is to get the candy to the Om Nom creature by slashing ropes and popping bubbles (among other actions, but to truly master the game, you’ll need to collect the three stars scattered around each level. With dozens of levels currently found in the ever-expanding game, it’ll take some time to dominate them all!
Who would’ve guessed that a game about catching falling sushi would be so powerfully fun and exciting? Sushi Boy’s simple approach makes it a perfect fit on both iPhone and iPad, letting you tilt your device to make the titular boy run around the screen, snatching each delicious bit of sushi before it smacks the ground. Along the way, you’ll have to avoid hazards like boots and metal hooks, and as you play more, you’ll be able to unlock higher difficulty levels and numerous customization aspects, like hats and backgrounds.
I am a sucker for a bargain, so I signed up for a multitude of deal-of-the-day websites that email me on a daily basis with some really sweet deals. However, I don't always have the time (or money) to spend perusing through these deals, and I've got about a month's worth of them clogging up my Gmail at the moment.
Since I don't exactly want to rid of the emails entirely--there are times when I want to splurge and take my friends out for some gourmet food at half price--I'm going to create filters that'll still allow me to get the emails, but keep my inbox clear for those important messages.
Looking and feeling like real pinball, Pinball HD is perfectly suited for the iPhone and iPad, with pitch-perfect touch controls that let you tap the left or right side of the screen to activate each respective set of flippers. Pinball wizards can also shake their iDevices for that essential ball-saving nudge. The game includes three tables to choose from: a table modeled after the Wild West, a jungle table with a gorilla named “Big Kong,” and an impressive underwater table. At a rock-bottom price, Pinball HD is a must-have for enthusiasts of the silver ball.
Though a simple, arcade-style gallery shooter at heart, Gun Range uses the iPhone 4’s gyroscope to satisfying effect, letting you quickly and accurately aim your firearm just by moving the device. It’s an impressive effect—and the game looks sharp on the Retina Display—though you’ll need to tap the bottom of the screen to re-center the “G-Scope” with some regularity. Still, with 12 gun types and 144 stages for a buck, it’s a darn good deal, or you can download the free ad-supported version.

On Tuesday, Verizon Wireless announced that they had finally wrestled iPhone 4 exclusivity from AT&T’s shackles after four years. Unfortunately, aside from swapping a GSM antenna for a CDMA model, the 3G-enabled handset is essentially the same -- despite Verizon’s big push for 4G LTE a week earlier at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
Given how pleased Apple was to see the Mac App Store make its first million sales, it should come as no suprise that with the iTunes App Store set to reach 10 billion downloads, Apple is looking to celebrate. To get the party started right, they're offering a $10,000 iTunes gift card to one lucky iTunes Store shopper. Just think of how many copies of Robot Unicorn Attack that could net you.
There's never a dock connector cable around when you need one. Alternately, many of us have been faced with the frustration of having one on hand, but no computer or wall socket to plug it into, leaving our precious iOS devices to die from a lack of power after a long day away from our Macs. Fortunately, thanks to a new patent awarded to Apple this week, the days of figuring out how to charge our iPods and iPhone away from home could be coming to an end.
Chaos Rings comes from the vaunted publisher behind console role-playing greats Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, and this iPhone and iPad exclusive crams the same animation, engrossing storyline, and game mechanics of Square Enix’s hits into a smaller form factor. In Chaos Rings, you’ll choose a two-person team and guide them around the perilous dungeons with the intuitive touch-anywhere joystick controls, and the game is fairly easy for newcomers to the RPG genre, though be sure to save often so you don’t lose your progress after a tough battle!
It’s less than a week since Verizon announced it would be carrying the iPhone beginning February 10, and already research firms are hard at work collecting data in an effort to predict how many AT&T customers might jump ship.
She may not be much to look at judging from the images here, but this could be your first glimpse at the long-awaited iPad 2 Camera app (or at least the bottom half of it, anyway) -- but don’t get too excited, the evidence seems to indicate that the tablet may be keeping its current screen resolution.
