Rovio’s been keeping its furious fowl busy as another Angry Birds game gets new levels — this time it’s Angry Birds Rio (free). Version 1.7 of the game includes 15 more beach levels to the Golden Beachball episode. Collecting all the golden cherries will unlock bonus levels, and other surprises have been added to the game, as well.

Bank of America updated its free Bank of America — Mobile Banking app to version 4.3. Most notably, Bank of America members can now make credit card payments using checking accounts from other banks — users just have to set up an external account. It’s also now possible for members to receive and send money using email addresses and mobile phone numbers.


Algoriddim has released its long awaited djay 2 for iPad and iPhone, with special half-off launch prices of $5 and $1, respectively. The first edition of djay was our 2012 pick for iPhone/iPad App of the Year, and the new edition of Algorddim’s DJ software app presents a new user interface with multiple performance layers and a single deck mode with larger controls. Also included are HD Waveforms to visually identify sounds and song structure, sample and drum pads, a new music library, and advanced performance tools such as Perfect Sync, which can seamlessly blend songs together for a perfect transition or mashup.



OpenTable has updated its app to version 5.1. It’s now possible to sort restaurants by distance, name, or rating. Restaurant search has also been refined by adding a filter for multiple neighborhoods and cuisines.
