I’m particularly excited about this week’s collection of new releases. It seems there are so many excellent games that have just hit the market or released big updates, so it was incredibly difficult to choose just five, but I hope you’ll agree we have some good ones here.
Meet a mischievous vampire named — what else — Le Vamp; a tiny helicopter with big personality; a hive of baby aliens; a crystal sphere traveling against the backdrop of a NightSky; and a Pangolin.

Apple’s mobile empire is wide-ranging, both in terms of products, and in terms of units sold. It’s worth remembering, though, that devices such as the iPad and the iPhone wouldn’t exist without Apple’s long-standing commitment to music. The iPad, however, has been somewhat neglected when it comes to audio.
Presumably, this state of affairs is something that developer, Clever and Son, wants to address with the release of their hot-off-the-press app, Couch Music Player. Described as “the music playback app your iPad has been crying out for,” Couch Player aims to improve on the somewhat clunky usability of the inbuilt iOS Music app. But is Couch Player anything more than a shiny new wrapper?
Upon the iCloud API being introduced, it was no secret that developers were somewhat slow to take advantage of what it offered. The feature allowed game developers to do things like store users’ game saves in the cloud, but many developers already had systems in place that did exactly this. What benefits would they get from moving to Apple’s service? This of course wasn’t the only functionality that came with iCloud, but, regardless, developers weren’t exactly enthusiastic. There wasn’t much reason for them to do extra work and adopt a new system that came with little up front benefit. Especially when, in the case of game developers, they already had things like OpenFeint that managed many of the same things.
Slowly but surely, however, developers of all different kinds of apps started to adopt iCloud as an easy way to back up and sync various kinds of data across devices. Games use the service to back up your save states for future recovery, to-do list apps use it to keep your lists in harmony across all your devices, and word processing apps — including Apple’s own Pages — use the service to save all your work to the cloud, accessible from anywhere you may need it. I’ve compiled a list of ten apps that do these and more on your iPad, so hit the break to read about them–you might even find an app you’ve never heard of before!
It’s time to suit up, people! There’s work to be done — rivals to crush, moles to help escape, zombie-fearing citizens to infect, cute and cuddly space monsters to transport from galaxy to galaxy, and a melodic Tuniverse to explore.
