Best iPhone apps this week

Apps for a days work as the Dark Knight – read some news, fight crime, upload some snaps, expand your mind, dine out

The Dark Knight Rises £4.99

Gameloft's official Dark Knight Rises game is pricey but the gorgeous graphics do Gotham City proud. Plus you can play around with Batarangs and jump aboard the flying BAT, which makes its first appearance in the latest film. It's no Arkham City, admittedly – but for smartphone gaming, there are enough missions and familiar faces to keep Bat-fans happy.
