According to the World Health Organization, around 230,000 children under the age of 15 died from AIDS in 2011. A large portion of the children infected with HIV every year are the result of mother-to-child transmission. While it's hard not feel helpless when looking at numbers so grave and staggering, there are ways to offer support. BitMonster Games has teamed up with (RED) and Coca-Cola to produce a new iOS game with goal of donating funds to this important effort.

The App Store isn't exactly wanting for Final Fantasy experiences, with four distinct games released to date, though everything we've seen thus far – Final Fantasy I, II, and III, and Final Fantasy Tactics – has been a revised port of some previous console release from several years back. Recently announced for a planned release this summer, Final Fantasy Dimensions bucks that trend, serving up a retro-stylized title that hasn't previously been seen in the States, giving die-hards a new entry in the long-running series to savor on the run.
How do you make the iPhone more fun? You give it a robot to control. Enter Sphero, the plastic ball that you control with your iPhone. Though we covered it briefly at CES earlier this year, we got a better look at the device while perusing this year's E3 show floor. At first glance, it's hard to tell Sphero's purpose.
