Apple released iOS 6.1 this afternoon, adding 4G LTE functionality for a large number of global carriers. Beyond the cellular improvements, iOS 6.1 offers some minor tweaks to Siri features, controls, and privacy settings.
Cupertino has just released its financial results for the first quarter of 2013. Despite some recent turmoil over reduced parts manufacturing and lowered stock expectations, Apple has still started the year with a record showing.
It's difficult being a delivery truck driver, particularly when the directions to your destination require a path that's not on any map, and the people you encounter along the way only seem interested in twisting you up in their own winding affairs. That's the case in the first act of Kentucky Route Zero, an offbeat and alluringly atmospheric five-part episodic adventure for Mac that finds its lead, Conway, out in search of a mystical highway.
Just yesterday, Facebook announced its new social search engine, Graph Search. But as of yet, you're still probably on the waiting list to actually try out its features. Today, however, iPhone users have an all-new bit of functionality built into the Facebook Messenger iOS app. Calling your Facebook pals for free is now as simple as the press of a button--mostly.
Joe Danger was a pleasant surprise when it premiered on the PlayStation 3 back in 2010, mixing challenging vehicular platforming with the oh-so-addictive pursuit of the highest score. Since then, the cartoonish motorcycle stuntman has received a sequel and special edition on the Xbox 360. But the series' latest iteration and first on iOS, Joe Danger Touch, manages to ride wheel-to-wheel with its console predecessors, creating a new experience ideally suited for the platform.

If you didn't happen to catch the prior games on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, that's OK. Joe Danger Touch looks like it offers most of what has made the series a hit, while adding in some new features for mobile.
Brash as its title might seem, Awesomenauts pretty well lives up to its confident billing by delivering a stellar side-scrolling take on the surging Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre, in which small teams work together to storm the enemy base while protecting their own. While the core mechanics should be familiar to anyone who's played one of the genre's more traditional top-down 3D entries (like League of Legends), the fun tweaks and personality are what make its cartoonish combat so engaging.
This is it, friends, the very last Price Drop of the year. Did you get the apps you wanted this time around the sun? No? Well, then this is your last chance for some cheapies. Or it's time to put some money into your App Store account and suck it up and buy what you want, no matter the cost.
Did you think we'd end out the year without one last deal go-around? Well, we can't say there's anything as crazy good as last week's super price chopped iPhone 5s, but this week does have its special treats. What are they, you ask? Well, go find out, why don'tcha?
