It’s been an enormous month for major studios bringing major game series to iOS. First we got a port-over of the Nintendo DS's favorite, Scribblenauts, and then Burnout Crash was announced. We also caught wind of a couple of other high-profile stars coming to the App Store in a easy-to-peruse click-through gallery.
Thirty years ago, a little frog braved oncoming traffic to get to the other side… of an extremely popular arcade game. The concept proved so endearingly popular that many years later, it was featured in an iconic episode of hit 90s sitcom, Seinfeld. To mark the momentous anniversary of the game's original release, the core approach has been revamped for your iOS device, be it an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
Have you still not gotten around to downloading the original Cut the Rope? Go. Now. Download that wonderful game and don't look back. It's ten times the puzzle game Angry Birds could ever be! And it's from that point of lofty praise that the sequel has to pick up the baton and continue the legacy. Thankfully, Cut the Rope: Experiments is more than up to the task.
It's my last Friday before maternity leave. So with visions of onesies dancing in my head, I present to you these awesome apps that are at newly lowered prices -- many in honor of the just-born iPhone 4S. After all, a new phone deserves some shiny new apps, does it not? Now you'll spend less money in the App Store, and have more money for diapers. (Yes, I realize I'm the one buying the diapers, not you. But bear with me here. I'm in no condition to argue...)
Nothing is worse in life than when you feel like you don't have any control over your electronic devices. Yeah, when the iPhone is flashing on and off and your MacBook just won't start up, you might be thinking that it's too late to really save it. A great way to prevent this from happening is to monitor your devices with free apps that can tell you what's going on under the hood. And thus...
Yesterday's launch of iOS 5 was also the launch of Newsstand, Apple's solution for buying and updating magazines and periodicals on iPhones and iPads. It's pretty spiffy, and we are there -- in fact, as of this writing we're the No. 6 app on the Top Grossing list. You can buy a single issue for $5.99 or subscribe for just 99 cents per month, which you can cancel anytime. (So there's really no reason to buy that $5.99 single issue, seriously.)

Haven’t had enough free apps from Apple for one day? Well saddle up and hit the App Store, partner -- there’s more gold to be found in them thar hills, with the promised Cards app arriving for the iPhone as well as a new universal iTunes Movie Trailers app for enjoying previews of Hollywood’s finest.
Most people probably aren't aware of Mobigames incredible iOS game, Edge, from the early days of the App Store. That's because the game was tied up in a major legal battle that kept it off the store for huge swaths of time (synopsis: the gaming industry's most infamous patent troll, Tim Langdell, sues the crap out of anything with the word "Edge" in it, claiming he owns the copyright because his company is named Edge Games.)
PDFs are the lingua franca of the business and academic worlds. Up until relatively recently, creating one required either pricey Adobe software or clunky workaround third-party solutions. And that's on the desktop. In the world of iOS, we have options from the clunky to the elegant. It's just a matter of figuring out which one is which.
Everyone rejoice! After months and months -- even years -- of waiting, Facebook is finally available for the iPad.

Facebook for iPad provides users of the popular social networking site with a significant user interface update to the iPhone version.
