Android and iOS app news: Napster launches Spotify rival
Apple's iCloud is on the way, and Spotify currently reigns supreme, but that hasn't stopped old-school favourite Napster taking a shot at the burgeoning music streaming market. Napster Unlimited plus Mobile for Android and iOS will cost £10 a month for access to 15 million tracks.

Android app news: Plants vs Zombies incoming...
Despite their protestations, it's not rare for Android owners to suffer from iPhone envy. The selection and quality of apps is just better. But week by week Android catches up and the launch of iPhone classic Plants vs Zombies helps to further even the playing field. It's coming on May 30th.

iPad app news: The Dark Horse of the field comes to iPad
Comic publishers Marvel and DC have already brought the world's most famous superheroes to the iPad, but what about some of the lesser-known, adult-themed characters? Well the Dark Horse comics app for iPad has come to the rescue, bringing Hellboy, Buffy and Terminator comings to Apple's tablet.

Nokia app news: Ovi is no more
Is Nokia flogging a dead horse? The Ovi Store is no more after Nokia decided to go with Nokia apps as the moinker for it's apps portal. Nokia reckons that synchronising its brand identity will help fix the issues, but the problem isn't the name of the store but more the fact that app developers don't want to touch Symbian with a 40-ft pole.

iPhone app review: Infinity Blade
Infinity Blade got a major update this week, which brought an online multiplayer mode to the classic iPhone adventure game. In light of that we thought it was about time we got a review of this action RPG titan up on the App Chart. If you haven't downloaded it yet, here's why you need to.

Android app review: LEGO Instructions
Ever wanted to create the Millennium Falcon from the thousands of assorted LEGO pieces you or your children have amassed down the years? Well now's your change. LEGO Instructions for Android does exactly what it says on the tin and allows you to create trucks and planes and...erm chickens providing you have the right bricks.

Nokia app review: Facebook
We mentioned above that Nokia has ditched the Ovi Store name in a bid to make its app brand less confusing. Well one thing in its favour is that Nokia now has a cracking Facebook app to kick-start the new era. All of the functionality you require is there and it looks pretty too.
