ArtRage is a consumer-oriented app for working with natural media — pens, paints and the like — from the safety of your Mac’s display. The interface is friendly, if esoteric; it doesn’t look very Mac-like, but it is simple to select tools, pick colors and update settings.
Games, games, and more games. Whether your flavor runs toward physics, towards puzzles, or towards role playing or classic board games, we've got a taste of each for you. Plus, movie fans and those looking for some on the fly mp3 action are represented in this week's price drop apps. So fire up the App Store and get your downloading ready to go.

...along with our usual roundup of reduced-price iPhone and iPad apps, too. Who loves ya, baby? (Hint: We do.)
The San Diego Comic-Con 2011 is well underway this week, and with it comes a treasure trove of special deals, many of which have little to do with comic books (then again, most of Comic-Con fits that description… but we digress). For example: If you’re had your painter’s eye on ArtRage for iPad, now is your chance to practically steal it for cheap.
