We're always fascinated to see how developers reach for new horizons within the App Store, and our New App Recap for this week certainly offers a number of unique solutions to very real problems. Whether you need to improve your vision without the need for reading glasses, paint without being an artist, or manage your work schedule with ease, we've got the apps you'll need to accomplish these goals, along with others for tackling email, keeping up with the latest news, finding a movie in the theater, tracking down the latest clothing styles, and tackling your reminders. It's one of our most productive recaps ever, so let's dig in!
Last week gave us a plethora of awesome games, and things aren’t letting up yet with titles like Game of Thrones: Episode 2, Transformers: Battle Tactics, and Evoland hitting the AppStore. Challenge yourself with the deceptively simple charms of The Hardest Flight and Sinking Feeling or relax with the interactive comic book appeal of The Detail. Want to save some piggies? Ammo Pigs is for you. Have a look.
While it may appear that Apple’s Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint have presentation solutions pretty well sewn up on iPad, both pale in comparison to the respective desktop versions.

It's already Groundhog Day here in the U.S., and the scruffy little rodent named Punxsutawney Phil has already prognosticated we have six more weeks of winter ahead of us. Thankfully, the App Store is chock full of some new selections to make the time pass quicker, including a convenient way to put push notifications to work, a new mobile email client from Microsoft, a handy app for learning how to play your favorite tunes, how to take control of your Mac, and even a special version of Vine that's just for kids. It's all right here in our first New App Recap for the month of February, so sit back and enjoy!
Many of us saw lots of snow this past week, and it appears the weather also triggered an avalanche from the AppStore. This week’s batch of games features the iOS version of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy as well as the first chapter in the episodic Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect. And you’ll definitely keep warm with puzzlers like Destructamundo and Yet it Moves. Just don’t forget to shovel the walkway in between gaming sessions.
Everyone loves a Super Bowl party. You don’t have to know what a drop-back pass is to enjoy it — between the snacks, the halftime show, and commercials, sometimes it seems that actual game isn't all that important.

Thankfully, with your iPhone, you can use these 8 apps to make sure that you keep everyone entertained, whether they're there to see the Pats or Katy Perry.
Seven years after the original iPhone, mobile search remains a must-have feature. Although there are an expansive number of options available, one of the original third-party apps, first launched in 2008, continues to be at the top of its game with this latest version.
