Apps: Badland 1.6, Gangstar Vegas 1.2, Podcasts 2.0 + Rosetta Stone

A favorite of one of our editors, Frogmind’s Badland ($4) has received a Halloween update in version 1.6. The addictive physics-based side-scroller now has a Halloween theme and a new multiplayer level. Four new multiplayer characters have also been added to the game. Badland is $1 for a limited time, due to a special Halloween sale.

Gameloft has added a number of new features to Gangstar Vegas (currently $3) in version 1.2.0. The Gangstar Superhero update brings five new hero costumes to the game, in addition to nine new vehicles, and three new weapons. Gameloft also added 14 new missions and some limited-time events to the game.

Apple’s oft-maligned Podcasts (free) app gets a much needed update with version 2.0. The app has been redesigned for iOS 7, and search is easier. Podcasts automatically updates with new episodes now, and users can choose how often updates take place. iCloud also keeps subscriptions, stations, and play positions in sync with iTunes and Apple TV. The app is still far from perfect, but the update is a step in the right direction.

Rosetta Course from Rosetta Stone is available for the first time on the iPhone and iPod touch with version 2.0.2.3. The official app of the popular language-learning method has a new user interface and boasts improved performance. Though the app itself is “free,” you still must have a Rosetta Stone paid account to fully participate.
