APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART

iPad app review: Plants vs Zombies HD
The iPad has a knack of taking iPhone classics and giving that little extra edge with some brushed-up visuals for the big screen. PopCap's massive hit arrives on the iPad in a market saturated with tower defence games, but still manages to rise above the rest. Check out our five-star Plants vs Zombies HD review.

BlackBerry app review: UberSocial
Twitter apps are among the most popular on any of the app stores, so it takes something a little big special to stand out from the crowd. The app formally known as UberTwitter appears on the BlackBerry App World boasting a host more options and depth than the official Twitter app.

Windows Phone 7 app review: International Snooker HD
A snooker game might not sound all that interesting, but we remember as far back as Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker on the Amiga 500, so this one perked our interest. Simple gameplay combined with "infuriating" difficulty in setting up the shots make this sim worth a download, but in need of improvement. International Snooker HD for Windows Phone review
