Browsing the App Store this weekend? Here are seven new or updated apps worth taking a closer look at if you are:
Elite port the classic arcade game over to the iPhone and it looks almost perfect! Choose between the standard 2D or enhanced 3D mode and get throwing those papers!
We listed this app in our recent app list for the movie maniac, but it’s so good we decided to make sure as many people knew about its release as possible. It looks great, contains access to the site’s database of 75,000 movies and real-time tomatometer updates.
If Rotten Tomatoes is an example of a great app, then this is an example of one that isn’t. A brilliant cult show like Red Dwarf should have spawned an equally brilliant iPhone app, instead we have a simple soundboard and gallery which rather cheekily costs $1.99, when it clearly should be free.
Fans of the Clerks director rejoice, for his official app contains the latest news, pictures and media on the man himself, plus plenty more including a Twitter client, a custom ringtone and a virtual (in)action figure. More stuff than the Dwarf app at half the price.
A new clipboard manager for the iPhone, Pastebot has a very clean interface and is not lacking in functionality. Aside from saving, manipulating and organizing your text and image clippings, you can sync the app with your Mac over Wi-Fi too.
The Amazon eBook reader software has been available on the iPhone in the USA for a while, however the latest update has made it available in more than 60 other countries too.
The iPhone game of the biggest movie release of the year. Published by Gameloft, this is an action game which sees you take control of a new avatar, learn the ways of the Na’Vi and then decide whether to work with them or the humans. Set 20 years before the events covered in the film.
