A little over a month ago, we saw a video comparing iOS on the iPad and the upcoming Windows 8 running on a tablet. Well, now you too can experience first hand Windows 8 Metro with touch gestures on your iPad, thanks to the release of Splashtop’s Win8 Metro Testbed app. Following in the footsteps of their highly popular remote access app Splashtop Remote Desktop, Win8 Metro Testbed gives you full Metro UI gestures, including swipe from right for the Charms menu, pull down from the top to close apps, swipe slowly from the left to run two apps side-by-side and more. The one big caveat here is that you must be running Windows 8 Consumer Preview on your PC (or Bootcamp on a Mac), with the free Splashtop Streamer client installed. This is certainly a great tool for developers planning on building mobile apps on the Windows 8 platform, without the need to spend hundreds of dollars more on new hardware. The app is currently on sale for $24.99 (50% off) and now available on the App Store. Check out the demo video and more info after the break.

When games set the bar so high in a particular genre, much like The Treasures of Montezuma 3 did for match 3 games, I often wonder if new variants are even going to be worth trying. I was especially nervous about this one because I had played its canine sibling, Puppy Sanctuary, on the PC and didn't really care for it. I'm happy to report that not only is Kitten Sanctuary a much more interesting game than its puppy partner (or I didn't give the other enough of a chance), but it can actually be quite addicting. The whole Tamagatchi style interludes aren't even that bad.
