Pixelmator for Mac has long played rival to Photoshop. With support for layers and comprehensive collage and drawing tools, it’s a far cheaper, but almost equally capable, editing tool. The same is now true on the iPad, where it’s challenging Photoshop Touch.

We've got love for you: all kinds of heart-related apps are on sale this week. And that's in addition to all the usual games and productivity apps we've got highlighted! But this week, there's a certain something in the air...Friday the 13th notwithstanding. So let's get on with the sweet, sweet luv.
Apple's been hard at work ensuring that the working conditions at its Asian suppliers are up to its standards, even to the point of banning a fairly common Asian hiring practice. In other news, the Cupertino company extended two-factor authentication to more services and increased the maximum app file size on the App Store.
Each week the AppStore keeps surprising us with a bigger selection of new games than before, and this week is no exception. Fight fires and rescue civilians in Mighty Switch Force! Hose it Down! or liberate London from a psychopath in Tempo. If scoring is more your game, have some fun with Dig2China! and Run Bird Run. And if love is on your mind this Valentine’s Day, Staying Together will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Following on from Kuler (now Color CC), Adobe Brush CC can convert anything an iOS device camera can see into a high-quality brush.

It's one of our most productive recaps ever, so let's dig in!
We've got a little something for the shutterbugs out there who want to do some tricks with their iPhone cameras, but we've also got games for a wide variety of interests this week. An expensive language app series gets a serious price drop and a pricey email app packed with tools gets a slightly smaller shave. And finally, you can answer the question: how long can you go without moving your phone? All that and more inside.
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.
