Eating great food has become a hobby, like sports, games, or needlecraft, and its lovers take their passion very seriously. Often referred to as “foodies,” food fanatics seek new eating and dining experiences, fresh flavors and aromas, and above all, great food of all stripes. There are thousands of iOS apps for finding restaurants and recipes, but relatively few meet the exacting standards of a discerning foodie. So we’ve gathered together 10 delicious apps that are sure to get your mouth watering with beautiful photos, tempting testimonials, and succulent recipes.
Batman’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, possessing a genius-level intellect and an endless arsenal of gadgets that let him maneuver and solve problems in interesting ways. He’s also known for getting into plenty of fistfights with thugs, and it’s this latter aspect that the iOS version of Batman: Arkham Origins focuses on. While Bats explores Gotham City, unravels mysteries, and terrifies criminals with stealthy scare tactics in the console and PC versions, his iOS adventure couldn’t be more straightforward, as he tackles tap-heavy one-on-one fights against a seemingly unending procession of goons.
Some people really have a hard time dealing with change. It seems whenever a popular software platform releases a new version, the interwebs are flooded with people whining about how much better everything was before (we’re looking at you, people on Facebook). Usually, when the next update comes around, these are the same people complaining about the changes again, and the irony there speaks for itself. With the recent release of iOS 7, the biggest change to iOS since its inception, Apple certainly opened itself up to those who love to complain about anything new or different, and the criticisms had to be expected. But was Cupertino prepared for one hater to lawyer up?
It seems like there's something going on or about to happen, but we can't quite put our finger on it. Like something that didn't get mentioned. Like an event-wide "one more thing." Hmmmm, well, maybe you can spot it in this week's hottest news.
Since Facebook appears to be so popular on the iPhone, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to include a few words about the latest update (particularly since it's kind of impressive). Typo-prone social media aficionados, rejoice: As of today, you can now edit your Facebook posts through the app's iOS interface.

There’s something magical and fascinating about the time of the pharaohs that just grabs us. Whether it’s the boy king Tutankhamun, The Pyramids of Giza, or the extravagant hieroglyphic writing, ancient Egypt commands attention. 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.
But while the apps I use for writing and researching are rich and powerful, the system they run on is seeming more and more like an enlarged version of something built for a phone. And iOS 7 hasn't helped.
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.
