ArtRage for iPad ($5) from Ambient Design Ltd. has updated to version 1.6. The updated art studio app has enhanced stylus support, as the app now supports the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus and TenOne Pogo Connect Stylus, in addition to the original Adonit Jot Touch. Tap and hold color sampling is now optional, and a number of UI issues have been addressed to make the app easier to use.
Combo Crew ($4), a touchscreen-optimized brawler by The Game Bakers, has added two new special characters in version 1.2.0. Viewtiful Joe of the Capcom series and Lester Knight from the classic action puzzle game Out of this World (aka Another World) join the fray. A $2 in-app purchase is required to unlock Joe, but Lester Knight — an inspired addition — comes unlocked with the update. The game has also added new challenges and missions to King of the Tower mode.
PBS Kids has released Daniel Tiger’s Day & Night ($3), a collection of simple but cute games and songs for younger children. Featuring the eponymous character from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood—a cartoony sequel to the classic TV show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood—Day & Night lets kids help Daniel get dressed, brush his teeth and tie his shoes, among other activities. And just like the show, songs are prominent, as a good morning and good night song can be played to reinforce routines.
Open Air Publishing’s Speakeasy Cocktails ($10) has updated to version 3.4. The newest update from our long-time favorite mixology app has notably updated its World Map of Speakeasies, the app’s guide to the best secret cocktail lounges in North America, Europe, and Australia.
