Hey, iPad owners! This one's for you. iPad apps tend to be more expensive than their smaller-screened counterparts, but luckily they go on sale just as often. This week we found iPad apps for making comic-book heroes out of you and your friends, apps to give you a reason to haul your trusty iPad to meetings, and a game that lets you take over the world. And you can get all of 'em for less than the price of a six-dollar burger...
Ah, the eternal questions: are we alone in the universe, just who did let the dogs out, and will that free TV on the curb fit through my doorway? You’re on your own with the first two, but CaMeasure can help with the last one.

Trekkies rejoice! Finally there's an app that will allow you to exercise your life long dream of shedding these weak 21st century operating systems, and work in something a bit more advanced.

Look, we get it. Angry Birds is an unfathomable success. They've transcended cult-hit status and landed at culture defining app of the decade. Even though some people don't like them.

Today we hatch awareness of the other birds in the App Store.
It's 2011 and there is a certain concession a lot of us have to make: social networking sites and platforms dominate a fair part of our computing existence. That being said, why not find a Mac OS X app that allows you to update multiple social networking sites at once. Notify all of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other microcosms of your present awesomeness, all with the touch of one button from one desktop application. Here are five Mac OS X apps that pull this feat off in fine style.
More than a few people have gone so far as to call Real Racing 2 the perfect iOS racing game, and we're pretty much in agreement. It's awesome. And it's about to get a bit more awesomer and perfecter as an update has arrived for the title and it's HD iPad counterpart.
Apple’s new Final Cut Pro X is certainly testing the patience and loyalty of one small but extremely vocal group of fans: professional video editors, who are up in arms over this completely reimagined post-production application. But will other users also break out torches and pitchforks to storm One Infinite Loop?
Amidst rumors that Apple was working closely with Nuance Communications to bring voice command integration into iOS 5, the creator of popular free apps such as Dragon Dictation has quietly slipped the technology into the App Store instead, in the form of a new free Dragon Go! app.
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.
