App week: Google Navigation wins big, Sonic 4 review

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:

T3 iPad Edition out now!
We certainly can't think of any bigger story in the world of apps this week than the arrival of your favourite gadget magazine on the all-conquering Apple tablet. Yes, T3 Magazine is available to download right now from the App Store. Check out the new features and then head over to iTunes to pick up the first digital issue.

Google Maps Navigation wins big at T3 Awards
It wasn't the biggest surprise in the world, but the free Android turn-by-turn sat nav deservedly took the inaugural App of the Year gong at the T3 Gadget Awards on Monday night, beating out Foursquare, Layar and Spotify

Windows Phone 7 heads in subscription TV
US cable and mobile network AT&T capitalised upon the WP7 launch this week by announcing that it'll bring its U-Verse subscription TV service to new WIndows handsets for $9.99 a month. We imagine it'll look pretty good on the new 4.3-inch HTC HD7 device

Angry Birds arrives on Android, kills app stores
The mobile popular game in the smartphone world, Angry Birds, flew from its beta nest today with a 150-level full iteration. Developers Rovio decided to only launch on its website and the GetJar app store, rather than the Android Market, which saw both platforms fall over as hundreds of thousands sought grab the app.

APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART:

Sonic 4 spins its way onto the iPhone
It has been a whopping 16 years in coming, but Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I has arrived on the Apple iPhone and we're happy to reveal that it's a must-have app for fans of the classic series. Read our Sonic 4 for iPhone review

Stop singing the wrong lyrics, will you!
Here's an Android app for those who struggle to decipher the ramblings of rock and roll's most obnoxious vocals. The TuneWiki app for Android is a sort-of mobile version of the X-Factor, with lyrics highlighted on the screen when you're playing your favourite tracks. It's definitely worth a download, considering it's free and might stop you looking like a plonker

Windows Mobile gets a decent training app:
Outside of the iPhone there's not many good fitness apps to choose one, so it's nice to see WinMo getting this cool GPS-infused training app which measures distance, calories and will also tell you how you're performing against your previous runs. Marathon for Windows Mobile is available to download now, check out our review
