We’re currently in the midst of Archaeology Month in more than a dozen U.S. states, so to celebrate, here are eight stellar apps that teach you all about the life, culture, history, and archaeology of one of the earliest and most celebrated civilizations.
The iPad just doesn't feel like an iOS device anymore.
There was a time when it did — mostly during those few weeks in 2010 when pixel-doubled iPhone apps still outnumbered their native counterparts — but these days it feels far closer to a Mac than an iPhone. There are some things I still need my MacBook for, but more often than not I'm reaching for my iPad when there's work to be done.

Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. A number of charming-looking titles headline the week's offerings, including Double Fine's beloved Costume Quest, which comes over from consoles, as well as the font-inspired side-scroller Type:Rider and the so-called Zelda-meets-Pokemon affair, Monster Adventures. Meanwhile, Ariel's Musical Surprise and Escape from Doom provide nice polar opposites on the back end of this week's overview.

Have you ever read a message from a friend — or worse, a business document — that just didn't come across correctly? If there's a misplaced, misused, or just plain missing punctuation mark, it can change the entire makeup of a sentence and make the end result read totally different than intended. And it can be terribly embarrassing, to boot. Understanding the rules of punctuation and knowing how to use the various marks can save you from confusing your readers, whoever they may be. We've collected eight tools to keep on your iOS device to help ensure you properly use punctuation marks. National Punctuation Day was last week, so while this roundup may not be terribly punctual itself, there's never a bad time to bone up on your punctuation skills.
A few days after its public release, Miley Cyrus summed it all up with a terse tweet to her 14 million followers: I hate the iPhone update. Now, she could be talking about the lack of a natural language engine in Calendar or the less-defined back buttons, but I have to assume her complaints are mainly related to the new color palette Jony Ive used to paint the icons.
