PDFpen for iPad ($10) by SmileOnMyMac lets users make edits and corrections to a PDF file on the screen. It can use iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, and Google Docs as storage. The iPad app notably added support for Adonit’s new Jot Touch 4 pressure-sensitive stylus in version 1.5.2, making it one of the first apps to support the Bluetooth 4 peripheral. Since that recent update, version 1.5.3 has resolved issues with Dropbox and other various crash issues.

Rovio has announced a new feature that will be introduced to its apps — Rovio Account. Already available in The Croods game, Rovio Account allows players to store game progress and continue playing on another device. So if you’ve gotten deep into an Angry Birds game on iPad but want to play on iPhone, you can pick up in the same spot. Rovio Account will be gradually introduced into other apps, and new features will be added.
