Daily iPad App: Get a change of perspective in Call of Duty: Strike Team

To be completely honest, I wasn't expecting much from Call of Duty: Strike Team.

Daily iPad App: Jurassic Park Builder makes me wish in-app purchases were extinct

I have to admit that I'm not typically the kind of person who gets sucked into those Farmville-style games -- be it on Facebook or in app form -- that require hours and hours of tedious upkeep while slowly whittling away at your wallet a dollar or two at a time. I am, however, a fan of dinosaurs,...
