SimCity has been on iOS since 2008 but earlier this year in July, developer EA Mobile released a new Deluxe version for iPhone. Just recently did they release an iPad version to make use of the large screen and graphical capabilities of Apple’s latest addition to the iOS lineup.
SimCity for iOS is pretty much a copy of SimCity 3000 with a new touchscreen user interface. All the graphics of the former PC game are still there but the gameplay has been very slightly altered and updated for a modern game.
You have three mutants slicing at you with razor sharp knives and only four bullets left in your machine gun. You’ve just entered the world of Rage, the newest application from the developers of Doom. Rage pushes the limits on using your iPad and iPhone for gaming. The game features amazing graphics with detail and speed you would expect from a PS3 or Xbox.
Rage is a point and shoot game, with your main objective to mame and kill as many mutants as possible. It takes all the same graphics and power you’ve come to expect on a gaming console and brings it to your mobile device. Play through three challenging and detailed levels, the Bunker, Tenements, and the Asylum. You have a choice of three weapons as you progress through the levels and fight off swarms of mutants, choose from a shotgun, a machine gun, or a pistol. Take aim at the horde of mutants and unload your clip before they reach you.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Talking Pals-Daisy the Cow. The developer describes Talking Pals-Daisy the Cow as the first talking app with an integrated mini game. Daisy responds to your voice and gestures; talk to her and she will repeat, poke her on her ears & foot she will be surprised. There are many more animations in the application but the real highlight is the mini game that involves Daisy becoming super cow possessing Zeus power in order to defeat the evil birds.

No matter how much money you make, it’s always great when you feel like you’re getting a good deal! Money saving vouchers and the like have been around for years, but keeping track of them and (more importantly) finding your way round to actually using them can take most if not all of the enjoyment out of saving money.
What if there was a single place for vouchers, somewhere that you could store them and that made it simple to use them on the go? Maybe it could even suggest new vouchers based on your usage – actually that would probably make a great iPhone app!?
Introducing Vouchercloud, an app that does just that.
Note: this one is for the UK, for now. Hopefully we’ll see a U.S. version one day!
Going on a trip? It seems that in an App Store packed with travel planners, there are tons of different options to choose from. What makes one better than the other and what makes it worthy of a home screen placement?
Hopefully, we can help with that. USA Today AutoPilot is an ad-supported app that puts your travel itinerary all in one place, which makes the hassle of travel easier. But is it worth the download? Fortunately, we have the answer.
Today we’re pitting Nintendo and Sony, the former kings of mobile gaming, against the completely unexpected force that has taken this industry by storm: multitouch phones, music players and tablets.
Twenty years ago, as we all awed at the amazing experience provided to us by our original Gameboys, no one ever predicted that the future of gaming would lie in a phone. In fact, the idea would’ve seemed downright nonsensical at the time.
What we want to know is whether or not you think these fancy all-in-one app-centric multitouch devices really provided a gaming experience that’s on par with dedicated gaming devices like the DS and PSP.
Is the incredibly vast offering of iPhone games enough to pull you away from Nintendo and Playstation or are the iOS games shallow in comparison to the rich offerings on other systems?
Cast your vote one the right and leave a comment below telling us your thoughts.
If you’re into digital stocking stuffers then you’re in luck, because this week has been another great one for significant game releases on the App Store.
Rather than focus on the flurry of Christmas-flavoured updates, here are some of the new titles that you shouldn’t be neglecting!
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Greetings Cards. The developer describes Greetings Cards as an iPhone and iPad Application that lets you send greetings and Christmas cards. Send the best wishes to your family and friends.
Enjoy and send beautiful greeting crads. It is really easy to use: choose a design, type your regard then share it by email or in your favorite social network.

Back in October, the team at Rovio Mobile launched a new game in their ever-popular catalog: Angry Birds Halloween. Now the birds are back in Angry Birds Seasons, a free upgrade to the Halloween game adding 25 new levels for the month of December!
Back in August, developer Rovio announced it had gained more than 6.5 million paid downloads on Apple’s app store with the iPad version owning over 200,000 of those sales. More of the same thing can surely only be good, and Rovio have achieved that.
