Still skeptical that massively multiplayer online games can work on the iPhone? We're still pretty skeptical too. However, today we got at least one good reason to hold out hope for the mobile MMO genre. Gameloft announced today that it's WoW-alike Order and Chaos has made over $1 million in twenty days on the App Store.
Despite the gangbusters success of the Facebook iPhone app, for some reason the social networking behemoth has yet to do anything for the iPad. Sure there's a touch-optimized version of their page that works on any mobile device, but come on. That's not what we'd call a dedicated focus on the dominant tablet. Heck, they've even got something for the RIM Playbook, which only seven people actually own, while millions of iPads and iPad 2s ship with nary a peep from Zuckerberg, et al. Bizarre behavior, to be sure.
But fear not, because the App Store is crammed to the gills with Facebook apps just for you and your needs -- whether they be chatty, photography, video, or the whole package. And while you scan this gallery, you can be sure another six hundred developers are submitting Facebook related apps for approval. We can do just fine without you, Mark, just fine.
Videos of a new tablet game have been released showing a new game called Shadowgun running on a Tegra 2-based Android device. In short, the videos are borderline unbelievable as they display near-console quality graphics on a touchscreen tablet. The third-person shooter is likened by the developers to Gears of War and is said to eventually be coming to iOS as well.
iPhone and iPod touch users without an iPad have been watching enviously from the sidelines as tablet users have the fun of using Apple’s iWork apps -- until now. Apple has announced new updates to Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iOS that make them universal at last.

But what the heck else happened this week? Well, we'll tell you all the questions you've been too embarrassed to ask about HTML5, we'll teach you how to get your mitts on some Spotify love, and we'll show you the strangest game you never knew you needed, like yesterday.
Excited for the impending release of Duke Nukem Forever? If you are, then be sure to hop on over to the App Store to pick up this fun little freebie. It's a little soundboard of the King himself offer up a few choice words of wisdom and classic one-liners.
CNNMoney has a look at a report by analytics company Distimo's report that the Android Market would be larger than the iOS App Store by July. The report looked strictly at the numbers of apps, both paid and free, and based on that, drew the conclusion that more apps will be available for Android than for iOS. Based on current numbers, and the frequency of new apps being added to both stores, iOS soon won't have the largest app store (there are already more free Android apps than there are free iOS apps).
Dead Space was one of the finest iOS games we've ever played when it released back in January, and not a whole lot has changed since then. Few games have come along since then to challenge its throne. Today that just got even more difficult as EA announced a big new update to the game that will add several great additions.
Shooting video with your iPhone or iPod touch can be a lot of fun, but the built-in Camera app doesn’t do much beside recording the scene. If you want to play with fancy effects that are fun and easy to use, take a look at Silent Film Director. This app comes in two flavors -- a basic version and a more full-featured option unlocked via an in-app purchase.
