iTunes changed music in a number of ways, but one of the biggest impacts was the freedom it gave consumers to purchase only the music they absolutely needed.

Goat Simulator, Valiant Hearts both headed to iOS

We've seen so many games make their way from iOS to home consoles and PC, it's about time our iPads and iPhones started to suck in titles from elsewhere, and that's just what they're doing.

Monument Valley recovered development investment in one week

Monument Valley is one of the best games I've ever played on an iOS device -- if you don't believe me, read the review -- but the fact that it didn't conform to the free-to-play trend meant that it wasn't a guaranteed success. It's absurd, but the game's US$3.99 price tag is considered a "premium"...
