Weekly App Store Roundup: March 29th

20130224-094713.jpgApp Updates:



Flipboard has received a massive update this week, moving to version 2.0. Included in the update is the ability to create magazines through the saving of articles, as well as many other improvements. Head over to our full article on Flipboard 2.0 for more details.

Angry Birds Star Wars:


Earlier this week Rovio teased an future update to their iOS game Angry Birds Star Wars. This update has since been released, with 20 new Cloud City levels for players to complete. Head to the App Store to purchase or update the game on iPhone or iPad.

App Discounts:

EA’s 4th annual sweet deals.

EA have a bunch of their titles that are either on discounted or free to celebrate the Easter weekend. Some titles include FIFA 13, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battleship and Dead Space. The full list of discounted apps is here.


Although Apple’s Podcasts app has recently received an update, many still feel it is lacking in key areas. Instacast is a fantastic alternative to the native podcast application, and at a reduced price of $1.99, it is even more appealing.

Nathan’s Pick:

My pick for this week is Flipboard. With the 2.0 update coming, it has reinvigorated my interest in the app, and I am now using it quite a lot. The new magazine feature has great potential, allowing users to easily create their own personalised publication to share with others.

Frank’s Pick:

My pick this week is Speedtest. Yes, it’s been around for ages, but it’s redesign has got me back into the mood of testing the speed of my internet every now and again, both on Wi-Fi and cellular. The option to remove advertising through an in-app purchase also lured me back, which only cost a measly $0.99. Speedtest is available in the App Store for free.
