App Week: AR Star Wars game, iPlayer on BlackBerry

Every Saturday we round-up the week in mobile applications bringing you news of the biggest new releases across all major platforms and a host of reviews from T3's App Chart. Let's crack on...

APP NEWS:

Falcon battle in your own backyard
Hands up who hasn't dreamed of shooting down TIE Fighters from the Millennium Falcon? Well now you can, with a little more reality than your average sim. Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner uses the iPhone's camera lens to stage the battlefield meaning the skyline of your hometown or the comfort of your living room.

Auntie lands on the BlackBerry
It's always nice to see technological institutions join forces, and they don't get much bigger than the BBC and BlackBerry. The iPlayer's arrival on RIM's smartphones is a long overdue bonus for the platform as it continues to chase down the iPhone and the iPlayer-less Android stable.

Reinventing the touchscreen keyboard
You get the sense that if the keyboard was being reimagined for the sole purpose of use of touchscreen phones, then QWERTY wouldn't cut it. Enter the new 8pen keyboard app for Android which works on a completely different, if rather convoluted, principal. Check out the video and see for yourself

Free Windows 7 apps with LG
WP7 fans who opt for the LG Optimus 7 apps will be glad to hear that the companies have hooked up to offer 10 free apps for the platform every 60 days. LG is promising a host of the most popular paid apps to be downloaded on a bi-monthly basis. That's nice of them.

APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART:

Reckless Racing: A five star Android game
It's not too often that an Android app earns the hallowed five star award from T3, but Reckless Racing is well worth the accolade. With awesome 3D graphics, an excellent control system and plenty of courses for you to tear up, what's stopping you downloading right now?

Share pretty much anything, anywhere
The Nokia Ovi Store is another platform which is flourishing lately, and the PIxelpipe sharing app is another step in the right direction. With over 110 sharing services at your command, including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, YouTube and Photobucket, the web is your oyster. Read the review and download today for free.

Kik'in it old school
Sure it's a bit like BlackBerry Messenger started making out with the rest of the smartphone world, but it's still a welcome addition to the App World. It's a pretty basic IM app, but great for keeping in touch with your non-BlackBerry owning pals. Check out Kik Messenger for BlackBerry today.
