Apps: After Burner Climax 1.1, Chrome 28, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Paint & Play, Priceline 10.0

Sega’s After Burner Climax ($3) has updated to version 1.1. The update adds a new plane to the game, the X-47B, an ummanned stealth plane from Northrop Grumman. After Burner Climax has also added in-game cinematics to enhance the gameplay experience, restoring arcade sequences that were missing from the original iOS release.

Google updated its free Chrome web browser to version 28.0.1500.12. Chrome now features interoperability with other Google iOS apps, with an option to open links for YouTube, Maps, G+ and Drive within each separate app. Enhancements to voice search, and text-to-speech for “all variations” of English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Japanese, and Korean are also included. The app now goes to fullscreen on iPad, as well. Data usage savings have been improved, as have page load times.



Disney’s new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Paint & Play ($5) is a 3-D coloring book that lets youngsters paint 2-D versions of Mickey, Minnie, and three different environments full of objects using colors, patterns, stickers, and even camera-snapped textures. The app then lets kids turn the 2-D art into 3-D animated objects, such that Mickey and Minnie can walk around and interact with the painted scenes. In addition to voice acting for the famous mice, music is another part of the experience, as kids can play music or create their own using the Mousekemusic Player.
