Google has updated the Gmail app for iOS and added several new features.
Aside from the mobile signature, vacation responder and new custom sound for iOS 5 users, a notable new addition is the ability to create quick doodles to attach to your email. Using the Gmail app or Gmail for mobile, you can now open up a canvas and scribble whatever your heart desires. This basic drawing tool supports different colors, brush sizes, lines, erasers and spray paint. As for future updates, Google has stated that they’re working on banner notifications, multiple login support, and a “send-as” feature for users with multiple gmail accounts.
Google, Gmail, – Free

Not sure why we haven’t seen this sooner (or at least none that I’ve come across before), but Finger Labs has just released Rockmate, an app that allows up to 4 people compose, record and play songs on a single iPad.
And by the looks of it, Rockmate doesn’t appear to be a gimmicky music app. Take a look at the video demo after this space.
Fingerlab, Rockmate, – $0.99

Our Apps Gone Free Roundup today features a number of worthy additions to your app collection. Azkend (TMA Review), one of the more addictive and fun match 3 games on the iPhone, is now a Freebie. As you progress in story mode, you unlock 1 of 8 talismans, each with its own unique power up effect that changes the way the tiles are cleared off the board. If you enjoy puzzle games in the match 3 genre and haven’t tried Azkend yet, here’s your chance to do so. Also free is Gamevil’s ADVENA, a party based action RPG that lets you switch between 5 characters on the fly. For the complete roundup, check out the list after the gap.

Judging by the iTunes description for Act of Fury I had a feeling it was going to be something different, and boy was I right. It's a scrolling shooter.. kind of. The thing is, while it looks the part and controls like one, you don't actually shoot anything. Instead, you use the powers imbued in you by a failed experiment in order to destroy things that you get close to. Between the unique game play mechanic, the variable upgrade system and the need to revisit old levels in order to progress further in the game, Act Of Fury takes scrolling shooters in a direction that I rather like.

Snapheal for the Mac was released on the Mac App Store earlier this morning. Brought to you by MacPhun, makers of the excellent iOS photo editing app FX Photo Studio (TMA Review), Snapheal lets you perform object removals and other complex touch ups without any prior knowledge of photoshop. It’s a matter of choosing areas you want to remove/touch up, hitting a button, and Snapheal’s algorithm does the rest. Here’s what it do:
Judging from the demo video, Snapheal does work “magic” and it truly makes removing objects from photos a painless process. Best of all, you won’t have to spend a whole lot for this promising photo app. Normally at $19.99, Snapheal is now on sale for only $9.99. Check out the videos and full app description after the break.
MacPhun, Snapheal - $9.99
