Since Facebook appears to be so popular on the iPhone, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to include a few words about the latest update (particularly since it's kind of impressive). Typo-prone social media aficionados, rejoice: As of today, you can now edit your Facebook posts through the app's iOS interface.
Ubisoft, the Europe-based publisher known for properties such as Rayman, Splinter Cell, and Assassin’s Creed, recently revealed a new spate of upcoming games--including several that are making their way to iOS and other mobile platforms. If you want to pillage the high seas, pull off some insane stunts, or engage in some classic platforming action, Ubisoft may have just what you're looking for.
If you're the sort who follows eSports, Blizzard Entertainment's got a nice surprise for you. Ahead of the StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS), the Irvine, California company best known for its Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo franchises has released an iOS app that will stream both live and archived videos of matches throughout the weekend.
Once upon a time, way back in the '80s, a lot of us enjoyed MTV because it delivered nonstop videos to our television screens. Vevo, a music video website, wants to bring some of that magic back, and on Apple TV to boot. As reported by AdAge (via MacRumors), the proposed music app would stream music videos 24/7, interrupted only by ads that are specifically made for TV rather than the Internet.
If you're an avid reader of Vanity Fair who's constantly on the move, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that the popular publication has launched an iPhone version tailored specifically for you.

Happily, Google's not dragging its feet when it comes to designing certain apps for iOS as well as its own Android system, as seen by today's release of the AdSense app for iOS. The release comes just days after the release of the Google Play version listed last Wednesday.
If you love taking and manipulating photos with your iDevices, you'll be happy to know that AfterLight has finally made it to the iPad. Long one of the top 10 paid apps on the App Store for the iPhone, the lightweight app allows you to create more appealing images than what you find with similar filter-based apps like Instagram. In addition, it features numerous sliders to help you create the perfect photo.
When it comes to comic books, characters like The Avengers, Superman, and Wolverine get all the headlines, but for more than 70 years, Archie and his pals in Riverdale have been hanging out, having fun, and addressing everyday issues in the long-running family-friendly series from Archie Comics. And on July 18, iOS users will get to experience the escapades of Archie and friends firsthand when Archie: Betty of Veronica arrives in the App Store worldwide.
Ever since Professor Layton and the Curious Village hit the Nintendo DS back in 2008, the Layton name has been synonymous with brain-bending puzzles, complex mysteries, and interesting characters. Now that the brand has come to iOS with Layton Brothers Mystery Room, most of that continues to hold true; but instead of solving head-scratching puzzles with Professor Hershel Layton, you're faced with unraveling a series of complex murders with his inspector son, Alfendi.
It's become increasingly popular to try and shoehorn console-style shooters onto iOS, but there's still something to be said for building a game around a system's limitations, rather than ignoring them. With that in mind, Frontline Commando: D-Day might look like a World War II-themed third-person shooter with (presumably) kludgy controls, but it's actually an arcade-y series of shooting galleries linked by auto-runner sequences. That combination creates a streamlined experience that lets us focus on what really matters: ducking behind cover and popping up just long enough to shoot Nazis in the face.
