APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART

iPhone App Review: Max Payne Mobile
If you simply can't wait for Max Payne 3 to arrive later this month, then take a trip back to where the Bullet Time fun began. The original PlayStation 2 version of the game has been ported to iOS devices. Thanks Rockstar. If you can get past the frustrating touchscreen controls, the gameplay and story still stand the test of time. Check out our Max Payne for iPhone review.

Android App Review: Sky Cloud
As mobile networks get more and more stingy with data, finding Wi-Fi connections on the go can be a lifesaver. Sky's purchase of The Cloud last year means it can open up free access to one of the UK's best public Wi-Fi options for its Sky Broadband subscribers. This app tells you where you can find connectivity. Check out our Sky Cloud for Android review

Windows Phone App Review: Next Bus UK
Waiting for buses is undoubtedly a one of the biggest wastes of time possible for a human to experience. Your Windows Phone can minimise that mind-numbing torment. Our reviewer says: "This application is designed to help out the troubled user who has strayed away from home and needs to find the nearest route back – or the seasoned traveller who needs updates on when their next bus will be popping along." Check out the Next Bus UK for Windows Phone review.
