Blood and Glory £Free
With comparisons to Infinity Blade, Glu's Blood and Glory is in good company – try this free iPhone app for gorgeous graphics and plenty of gore and violence as you swipe and slash your way through gladiatorial opponents. There's plenty of paid-for coins and points packs if you don't want the fight to end.
The Amazing SpiderMan: An Origin Story £4.99
With geeky apps come expensive prices but The Amazing SpiderMan is essential for any true Peter Parker fans. Disney and Marvel have put together this origin story for the iPhone and iPad, narrated by Stan Lee and with interactive games, like swinging through the city.
Jimi Hendrix: The Complete Experience £Free
Launched to celebrate Jimi's birthday, Sony has left no Hendrix stone unturned for the "Complete Experience" on iPhone. There's photos, video clips and a discography for sampling tracks with iTunes integration for the tracks you own – all in a slick app. Geo fencing alerts will even let you know when you're near famous Hendrix landmarks. Foxy.
Although we sometimes shudder at apps that try to socialise everything about our lives, we quite like the sound of Weathermob. Take photos or video of the weather near you, choose from a selection of quirky icons and descriptions from within the iPhone app and post them to Facebook and Twitter. Less mob-like, more friendly community sharing.
Top Eleven £Free
A rare breed of app that's hopped over to the App Store from Android – after it took Facebook by storm – Top Eleven lets you manage a football squad, buy and sell players, watch how matches play out under your coaching and make substitutions.
