It's not in the App Store quite yet, but the latest major release of "read later" app Instapaper is queued up and ready to go alongside the release of iOS 7 this week, and here's a peek at what to expect.
Ubisoft, the Europe-based publisher known for properties such as Rayman, Splinter Cell, and Assassin’s Creed, recently revealed a new spate of upcoming games--including several that are making their way to iOS and other mobile platforms. If you want to pillage the high seas, pull off some insane stunts, or engage in some classic platforming action, Ubisoft may have just what you're looking for.
One major disappointment with Apple's iOS version of iPhoto is its total disconnect with the Mac edition -- which is why we're excited to see Adobe teasing a version of Lightroom for iOS, which includes the ability to sync to the desktop.
Superhero videogames have a real hit-or-miss history.

Luckily, Fieldrunners 2 looks to have been well worth the wait.
