App week: Star Wars on TomTom, FIFA 11 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:

60 seconds with the T3 iPad Edition
Downloaded the T3 iPad app yet? We're the first UK magazine to appear in full on Apple's all-conquering tablet. Allow us to show you around the app in our quick-fire 60 second guide. Check out the new features and then head over to iTunes to pick up the first digital issue.

Angry Birds gets spooky
The hit Rovio game continues to stay in the news. Last week the new Android app sank the GetJar app store, but this week's development is even scarier. Angry Birds Halloween Edition is available to download now, with 40+ pumpkin-filled levels. This is an Apple-only release however.

TomTom for iPhone, now with Star Wars voices
TomTom has outed a dastardly plan to thrwart the Jedi-like free sat nav apps, but bringing out the big guns. Now Star Wars voices Darth Vader, C3PO, Yoda and Han Solo are available to download for the new version of the app. Each Lucas-approved add-on will cost £3.49.

Another Facebook privacy scandal
This week's national outcry over what Facebook does with our information concerns popular third party apps like Farmville. According to a Wall Street Journal report, many of the apps are passing on our user IDs to advertising companies. Check out the latest Facebook faux-pas.

APP REVIEWS FROM THE T3 APP CHART:

FIFA 11 scores on the iPhone
As you can see from the banner above, it's our app of the week and with good reason. The EA franchise has asserted its dominance over the footy game scene on a new plaftform. Check out our FIFA 11 review for iPhone.

Your landing gear is down
Ah Flight Control, the tube journeys we whistfully wasted away bring in numerous planes to land on the most dangerously cluttered runway in history. Those who don't own an Apple device can now see what all the fuss is about with the BlackBerry version of Flight Control. Make sure you've got a touchscreen BlackBerry though.

Fruit Ninja for Android
Ever fancied living out your fantasies of being a ninja by slicing and dicing your way through onrushing fruit? No? Well, neither have we, but this simulator remains one of the best Android games to date. Retaining all of the briliance of the iPhone version, it's as addictive as a crack-flavoured episode of 24.
